Oh man, that changes every week for me. I run the food department at my job and I get in random junk food all the time. For now, I've been digging these:

The only time I eat crisps is during a lengthy bike-a-thon, because I often need to replenish my salt at the rest stops given how much I sweat.

Well, the rich connoisseur just left the table early and the chef's trying to sneak out the back so...whatever he's eating!

I think my garbage/junk food tastes have matured.  

Like instead of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, I crave the scratch-made ones from the local chocolatier near where I live.  I really should go there to get a bag of chocolate covered pretzels.  I LOVE chocolate covered pretzels.  

My cycling club's weekly ride meet-up spot is at an upscale grocery store and I love getting treats from their dessert counter.  Their Wonka Pyramid is so decadent.  It's a chocolate dessert.  

Yeah, good chocolate, especially the dark 70-90% cacao stuff, is my indulgence.  


Good chocolate is the best. Especially good chocolate with creative flavours. I used to think Japan was silly for having tons of limited editions of popular brands, but now I'm like, OMG!, I haven't tried this new Tony Chocolonely bar yet.



Ginger and lemon. I wonder what that will be like.

Sadly, they were out of the white bar with carrot and walnut. That one sounded interesting.

Yeah, the name is kind of weird, but there's a story behind it that starts with this protocol a bunch of big chocolate companies signed to comply with. The aim was to combat modern slavery and child labour. A reporter, Teun van der Keuken, investigated it and found out all those companies where doing a terrible job actually following the rules they agreed with. So, he recorded himself eating like a dozen of chocolate bars from these companies, and tried to turn himself in at the police station for having knowingly and willingly purchased and consumed an illegal product. He even convinced four child slaves to testify against him in court. The case was dismissed, because, yeah, technically whole thing was sort of insane. Big chocolate, however, wasn't impressed and Van der Keuken decided to start his own brand using actual fair trade cacao that can be traced back to cacao producers that pay fair workers a fair wage and don't employ young children.

Tony's Chocolonely is available in (part of) the US now, but that branch only sells the normal flavours. No crazy limited editions (yet).

tl;dr by eating this chocolate, you're contributing to someone's lone battle against modern slavery.

BTW dark chocolate + lemon + ginger = delicious

My favorite garbage food are sandwiches.  Not regular homemade sandwiches, but restaurant sandwiches overstuffed with meat and cheese.  Phillies, Reubens, Caesars, you name it.  Bread, meat, and cheese messy monsters.

Other guilty pleasure food I just thought of.  

I steer clear of doughnuts, but whenever I ride with my cycling club during the summer and our mid-ride stop is a farm, I enjoy me a seasonal apple cider doughnut or two.  Apple cider doughnuts are a south Jersey thing in the summer.  There is this one farm that also has these amazing seasonal cranberry muffins, made with local cranberries.  I know a muffin is pretty much a cupcake without frosting, but man is it good.

Several of our rides often stop at local bakeries mid-ride and I sometimes indulge in a chocolate croissant or some other good pastry.

Although not a "junk/garbage" food, peanut butter is my favorite food, hands down.  And, obviously, it has to be a premium kind and creamy.  I dislike chunky peanut butter.  

Pancakes are another one where it's not a "garbage food," but when presented with a stack of pancakes, I always eat a few too many.

Do you prefer white gravy or brown gravy with your biscuits?

Biscuits can only be served with white gravy.  Anything else is blasphemy/Thanksgiving dinner.

I think my current favorite garbage food is breakfast burritos.  Like the ones from McDonalds.

Speaking of cookies

These are the best cookies ever.
