Peppermint bark

Ah, yes. That is a big one for me. Especially the Ghirardelli variety. Can't get enough of that stuff. Thanks for reminding me it's that time of year again!

Another "garbage food" to add to my growing list- tater tots.  I do everything in my power to avoid processed foods as much as I can, but I love me some tater tots.  While some folks crave fries, I'm more about the tots.  That being said, I prefer my potato baked. 

It still doesn't top the jalepeno popper as my king of cheat meal food.

Is this a relevant place to say I wish vegetarian Peeps were a thing? Or rather the Peeps rabbits because Peeps proper don't have ears to bite off?

Also Salt & Pine had some really awesome fries -- more like potato wedges, had the only aioli I've ever enjoyed as dipping sauce -- when I went there last Friday and so I went back this Friday to discover they closed last Saturday so :^)))))))

(Meanwhile on the Worst Garbage Food front, The New Taj Mahal remains the worst Indian restaurant in Columbus. I don't think aloo gobhi's supposed to be watery. I don't think their "special korma" is supposed to be, period.)

I had some crispy fried french toast caked in cinnamon sugar this weekend.  I could FEEL it clogging my arteries.  It was the most delicious french toast I have ever had, even taking Denny's extinct Peach French Toast into account.

Than again, I always had the English Toffee Cappuccino with the Peach French Toast, so... the combo there was still a little better, I think.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch is 100% guilty pleasure cereal.  The best part is drinking the milk that's gotten sludgy from all the extra sweeteners you added to it via the cereal. 

These days, though, one spoonful and I'm done.  My body seems to reject garbage food, though it accepts jalepeno poppers and tater tots as cheat meal treats.

I can't believe I forgot to mention samosas in this thread.  Yes, along with tater tots and jalepeno poppers, that is a huge guilty pleasure food for me. 

For those that don't know, the samosa is kinda like an Indian empanada usually filled with potatoes and peas, sometimes lentils too.  With mint chutney and tamarind sauce, samosas are glorious.  Pakoras (Indian vegetable fritters) are delicious too.  I tend to stay away from fried foods, but on those rare occasions I eat at Indian buffets I go for those.   

I remember once hanging out with some friends and one was talking about the samoa Girl Scout cookies but accidentally said samosa.  After correcting himself, he and I both looked at each other and said, "but, yo, samosas are pretty awesome!"  That's when another friend and his Cuban girlfriend asked, "What the hell is a samosa?"  The second guy was trying to explain what it was while I was thinking of something familiar to compare it to but could not quite remember the word "empanada."  Then when I remembered, I hushed my friend and said, "A samosa is like an Indian empanada" and got the "Ohhh, NOW I get it!" reaction.

^ I'm gonna have to try that. Having married into a family with roots in Mexico, I have come to love anything empanada-related.

I love samosas but are they really garbage food?  I guess the outside is lightly fried, sure, but most of the volume is just potatoes and veggies and stuff.

Also is it weird that I am familiar with samosas but didn't know what an empanada was?  It's not like I'm Indian or anything...

I feel like the conversation has more or less gone from "garbage" food to guilty pleasure food/ guilty pleasure street food.
