Austin Mahone's naughty foodie treats

Austin Mahone always makes sure he has Oreos on tour, and loves to sip on sweet tea.

When American magazine Us Weekly asked the teenage star to compile a list of 25 facts that his fans wouldn't know about him, he managed to squeeze in five food related titbits.

Like any other 18-year-old, Austin loves nothing more than chilling out with some junk food and makes sure his tour bus is stocked full of his favourite snacks.

Luckily his habit of indulging is yet to show itself on his waistline.

"I’m really obsessed with drinking sweet tea," he enthused to the publication before reeling off a few of his favourite foods, which included both sweet and savoury treats.

"The first thing I do when I get back to my hometown, San Antonio, is eat Whataburger.

"Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup always makes me say, 'Mmm, yeah!'

"Golden Oreos are the one junk food I have to have on the road with me."

Not all of the facts were positive ones though, as Austin also confessed to his worst culinary nightmare.

"One food I think shouldn’t exist: clams," he shuddered.

Since debuting his music in 2012, Austin has fast become teen idol. As well as releasing catchy pop tracks, the singer has been lauded for his sense of style.

His clothes choice at April's Radio Disney Music Awards caught the eye of Kelly Osbourne, who hosts E!'s Fashion Police.

"Austin Mahone, seeing a young man that can pull off a floral print. It’s also nice to see him without a hat on!! (sic)” Kelly posted on her blog.

Other facts Austin shared with his fans were that he had his first kiss at 13 and that he brings a jar of sand from the beach on tour to remind me of home.
