I'm addicted to DORITOS. I do know that eating too much will be bad for my health, but I just love the stuff. It's hard to stop eating junk food, it just tastes so good! Quoting Savage Garden's song Affirmation: "I believe that junk food tastes so good because it's bad for you." So--- do you love junk food? What's your favorite?

Have you heard of Piattos Roast Beef? That new flavor is amazingly delicious. I mean... whoa! I crave for some of it right now. When we go grocery shopping, I see to it that I get at least 3 bags of those Piattos Roast Beef flavored potato chips. They are THAT good!

I don't just have one favorite junk food. I like a alot, lol.. I can really go for a snickers bar about right now, but don't have any. Right now with easter approaching, I am a jelly bean freak, lol. I love those things... I think I have a junk food for each holiday that I get stuck on for a while and then move on to the next, lol.

Snickers fan present! :) Did you know that there had been a Snickers scare in some parts of the world? It was all because of that Melamine milk incident, but now I heard they're safe for consumption again. The only people who won't be able to eat Snickers bars are those with severe food allergies because of the peanuts contained within the bar. Sad state of affairs, really. :(

I love Nachos too! With melted cheese and ground beef, sometimes with fresh salsa and guacamole on the side... yum yum yum. I think Granola and Nuts are healthy food and yet they're really delicious snacks too. I wouldn't necessarily call them junk food but because of their addictiveness, I think I know what you mean. :)

I haven't heard of any of those junk foods before, but Soy Whip makes me curious. and what are Luna bars? They're made of moon fragments (just kidding)? It would help if you can explain what those are because they sound really really interesting :)

Doritos will always be my favorite chips in the whole universe! Ha ha. It's like cheesy goodness stored in a convenient bag. I can eat a large sized Doritos bag if I want to. Usually when there's a really good movie on cable, I'd pop open a bag and next thing I know, I'm already half-way through the movie and the Doritos bag is empty! LOL. It will definitely hurt me in the end (kidney problems) but I see to it that I only eat those chips just once every week.

it's one of my guilty pleasures. ^^ i love ruffles, especially the sour cream flavor. it's just so addictive! something about the msg and the oil makes it so bad yet so good, lol ^_^ i also like doritos, but they always burn my tongue and palate after a while. well, ruffles also does that, but a little less than doritos. you can see i'm really addicted to junk food as i let it scrape my palate before i stop, hahaha ^_^

I understand that "burned and scraped" feeling! (laughs) When you eat too much Doritos, it does make your mouth feel scraped and wounded in places. It must be the MSG, the tons of flavorings, and the high salt content.

all this talk about junk food makes me wanna buy a bag of ruffles! sigh, hehe ^_^ i think i'll be going out today to buy a few bags... and a few doughnuts... and perhaps snickers with almonds (it has less calories than a regular snickers). hookay, talk about cravings for junk food! i blame you for any future weight gain i get, lol ^_^

Hello inkyuboz! I also like some junk foods. My favorites are Piattos and Nova. Everytime I felt like eating junk foods, those foods were the one who came first on my mind. It's just so delicious when you pair it with soda.

I have a recommendation: Piattos Roast Beef and that new Nova flavor (whose name escapes me at the moment, I think it was Spring Salad or something). Anyhow, I also like Tostillas because they're crunchy and tasty enough. It's like a cheap version of Doritos really, and I love spreading more cheese on top of them and drizzling ground beef/pork as toppings. YUM!

I LOVE chips - salt and vinegar, ketchup, all dressed, doritoes, nachos, I love the salt and i love the crunch. I know they are bad for me - so ive tried to cut back on how many i eat. Ive replaced them with tortillas and salsa with sour cream - i dont consume near as much in a sitting as i do with a bag of chips.

Home cooked meals are ALWAYS better than any junk food--- nutrition wise. But sometimes, I sneak in a couple of chips in my diet. Nothing bad if taken in moderation, right? Thanks for replying shiwangipeswani! :)

I know what you mean pacepicaso! Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are one of the most sweetest and delicious peanut butter-y food item in any grocery store right now. It's really really good and I can't wait to buy one!

I used to be addicted with Granny Goose Tortillos, the red one but then I got a kidney stones and it was associated with too much eating of that junk food, so i had stopped.

Awww... that's too bad. Granny Goose Tortillos are one of my favorite snack items back when I was a kid too. I have stopped eating them because my grandpa told me that it's bad for me. Now I know why...

I LOVE SAVAGE GARDEN!!! That song is amazing! And, I fully agree with them. I am addicted to sunflower seeds. I can sit and eat on those things all day, and they aren't that bad for me. The problem is that after all the salt I have to have something sweet and thats when it gets dangerous. Because then I want more salt and grab the sunflower seeds again. Its a never ending circle.

I know what you mean. Like when I'm eating something sweet, I find myself craving for something salty, and vice versa. It's nice that I'm not alone in that feeling. Ha ha. I can eat ice cream for an hour, then munch down a whole bag of chips, then proceed with a whole bar of chocolate. It's still a surprise that I haven't got any health problems (hopefully I won't have one...)

Hey inkyuboz! I am the unltimate junk food junkie! I love all kinds of junk foods! I love cookies, cakes, chips, pretzels candies, ice cream! As for a favorite, I have too many to list and they change from time to time! I have a favorite for awhile and then I get sick of it and change to another favorite for awhile until I get tired of that one! I think that I always have to have some kind of cake or cookies and ice cream around though because those are my favorite kinds of junk foods. And I have to have chocolate candy too!

Which reminds me, I haven't had pretzels in months! I have to go get some because I know this one food stand somewhere who sells these really yummy pretzels. My mouth is literally watering just thinking about it right now. Hee. I have to remind myself to buy one next week.

I am such a big junk food pig. I love Reese's peanutbutter cups and powdered sugar mini-donuts. Have to watch myself because I get carried away and can eat a big box of the donuts in a day's time. Also love regular Pepsi. I need to learn to only reward myself with these things once in awhile and stop eating them daily. Just isn't good for my teeth or any other part of my body either. I could live on sweets. Doritos are good also but I prefer regular potato chips with some Ranch dressing for dipping.

Junk food is great until you get older then you go visit your doctor and they tell you to stop junking it up because your cholesterol is too high and they tell you to watch your sodium intake.. oh boy, talk about taking the fun out of eating your favorite snack foods!.. I love sweet and salty snack foods also, like potato chips ( yes, Doritos are the bomb!)and doughnuts and various pastries and ice cream and cookies... Should I go on?..LOL

Hi. inkyuboz. My favorite junk food is chocolate chip cookies, especially if they are made straight out of the oven after it has cooled off. I also love Dorito chips too. I love the Sweet Chili flavor kind too. Dill Pickle is another one of my favorite kind of chips too.
