It looks ok to me, but I'd love the opinion of someone more experienced. Here's the stats:

Do a google search for "partially hydrogenated soybean oil" it is defiantly a trans fat , just some fda semantics read below.

n July 11, 2003, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a regulation[46] requiring manufacturers to list trans fat on the Nutrition Facts panel of foods and some dietary supplements.[47] The new labeling rule allowed for immediate voluntary compliance with mandatory compliance by January 1, 2006 (although companies may petition for an extension to January 1, 2008). The regulation allows trans fat levels of less than 0.5 grams per serving to be labeled as 0 grams per serving.

"The regulation allows trans fat levels of less than 0.5 grams per serving to be labeled as 0 grams per serving."

But if it makes you happy and is only once in a while maybe go for it, we all have our things.

You could also make your own with only good stuff!
