So we're all here one way or the other, likely in relation to waste. So in response to that, what are some of those ways you make it that you probably shouldn't? Talking about those late-night cravings, those lunchtime splurges, or the midday snack. Maybe a comfort food that takes you back ( :D I made a rhyme), or that adult beverage you resort to after one of those kind of days.

For me, popcorn always finds me at any grocery store, movie theatre, sporting event, heck even vending machines with their delicious "Smart Foods White Cheddar Popcorn" delicacies. Coffee doesn't treat me right, but catch me in the morning without it and you'll have a fight ( :D rhyme #2!!!). I gave up drinking as a part of my journey, but boy do I miss sipping on some Four Roses Single Barrel or Angel's Envy on a Friday evening after a long week. So what do you got? Or what do you miss?

Cheers!

Food is one of the great pleasures of life that I never feel guilty about as my philosophy is "live to eat"!

My favourite comfort foods usually involve dairy products, like a toasted cheese sandwich, mac and cheese, stuffed crust pizza or any kind of pasta bake (with, you guessed it, a sh*tload of cheese!)

My favourite fast food would have to be "the colonel" (KFC), those bacon cheese zinger burgers in particular, just yum yum in my tum.

That white cheddar popcorn sounds bloody amazing, may have to check to see if it's available down here.

Thanks Justin for bringing up one of my favourite topics, cheers!

I don't eat as much ice cream as I used to and really miss that! My favorite is Ben & Jerry's Chubby Hubby.

I only drink the good 'ol Canadian whiskey on special occasions now.

Well, my favorite food one was Toasted Almond Bar. They discontinued making those, so I switched to Choco Tacos. And now, they've either discontinued them or are in the middle of some "clever" marketing ploy. Lately, I've been destroying French toast. Wednesday, it's back to my hospital diet of an omelette for breakfast and a turkey sandwich for my lunch/dinner!
Looking forward to getting out so I can continue this French toast destruction!

That Choco Taco better be a joke. I too will not stand idly by and allow them to take it away. If Twinkies got to stay then Choco Tacos must as well. And too many combinations to make with French Toast to ever go wrong.

Half baked is mine. Love some cookie dough :)

I could eat mac and cheese every single day and never complain. The popcorn is good because they pre-popped bagged kind they normally do really well at screening out the kernels and the cheddar dust on your fingers works the exact same way as Cheetos! A little extra flavor on your fingers when you're done.

My guilty pleasure is a Captain Morgan and Diet Coke or two at happy hour, but (not a typo) lately I've realized they really dry me out so am currently replacing it/them with water .... I guess this is a good thing as Jimmy would sing.

Rum is the reason pirates never ruled the world.

Now Abe........whatchu talking about??? Good Humor still makes Toasted Almond Bars, as well as Chocolate Eclair and Strawberry Shortcake.... I just bought some the other day. There are also off-brands that make clones of them too. Don't mess around like that...... I almost had a heart attack! Not that Choco-Tacos are second rate........ love them too. Then again there's not too much ice cream I don't like.......... except Coffee flavored. Now go get ya some!!!

;O)

Nothing. I eat/drink anything I want. Popcorn is the only thing I've had since obtaining this lovely accessory that I can for sure say affects me.

Hi Bob,

Hate to be the bearer of bad news. Must be the last of the stock, they are completely out up here. I've looked everywhere and we don't even get the knock off brands up here.
All the best

Hi all, my favorite ice cream is Mackinac Island Fudge, but I also can't resist popcorn when we go to the movies. However, I limit how much I eat.

Chicago Mix from Costco and Johnnie Walker Black!

I have been known to get the bucket of popcorn at the movies and eat the entire thing myself. I'm a horror movie buff with no such friends or family, so I typically go alone (I'm in there with maybe seven other theatregoers) and it is such joy to tear into that bucket. I've yet to get the free refill! When my gallbladder comes out, I will most likely have to give up this guilty pleasure, and I'm pretty bummed about it.

Chocolate for me, dark please. I don't feel guilty because they say that a small amount of dark chocolate is actually good for you. If they ever debunk this, I'd rather not know about it! So maybe I sometimes have a little more than a little.... what the heck! Life is short.

What constitutes a small amount? Is it the whole 1-pound package from Trader Joe's? That's my small amount!

That's the beauty of it. Everyone gets to decide what a 'small amount' means to them.

This here is an interesting question... I try to avoid eating things that I'll pay for while at school, but I'll go for happy hour on occasion— Captain Morgan and cranberry juice are quite the tasty combo.

If we're talking Ben & Jerry's, I'll take the classic Phish Food.

I also love me some popcorn, but I have to plan the consumption because it does not love me back—that jerk.

I really miss a good salad on a hot day, no matter how much intestine they take out, that just never goes well for me and generally should be avoided at all costs.

Past Member

Yeah, I'm not much of a salad person, so whenever I do actually want one, it's gotta be perfect. I'll hit the massive salad bar at the grocery store near home and have it as one big lunch, but only if I know I don't have any plans that involve going anywhere the rest of the day.

Obviously, you people need real help. There's only one true guilty pleasure.....Nothing else can make you slobber like a mouth full of Sweettarts.
