I don’t really consider junk food to be a guilty pleasure but I love Squish candy and Old Dutch BBQ chips!

Jaffa cakes.  Apparently they don’t exist outside the UK which is a shame because they’re delicious. They’re these biscuits (there’s a debate on whether they’re biscuits or cakes) made from a small vanilla sponge topped with orange jam and then covered in dark chocolate 🤤

I absolutely love junk food, which is terrible. 

Some of my favorites that I have to force moderation with (or I could eat gallons): McDonald’s fries, chocolate (espeically with almonds), chips and dip (esp ruffles with sour cream + onion dip)…the list could go on haha

ariesscientist :  holy crap those things are AMAZING. One of the children at our school has a dad who travels to the UK often. He brough a few boxes back for us and I literally ate 90% of them. I wish they had them in the U.S.

Smartfood popcorn. FH’s family is British, so whenever someone visits they bring us Skips and those are usually gone in 30 seconds.

For candy, it’s Sour Patch kids for sure, though really I can eat just about any candy that’s not cherry in abudance!

My guilty pleasures are pizza, mac n’ cheese, and fried rice – none of which are good for me!

encorebride41 :  i love those TJ’s spiced mangos and i do eat the entire bag in one sitting, i can’t help it.  or it’s in the panty and i say i will just have 2.  then every time i walk by, i take another 1 or 4. 

my husband was at TJ’s last week and looked for them for me.  he called me while he was still in the store.  i said go ask someone who works there where they are.  he wouldn’t. he just said i’ll look around again.

Currently, it’s Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cakes. I could probably list 100 ‘guilty pleasure treats’

I don’t think labelling certain foods as “guilty pleasures” is a healthy approach to food. I really wish we didn’t live in a diet culture where shaming ourselves for craving tasty food is the norm.
Regardless, I like cheap Chinese takeaway, I guess some would see that as a bad thing lol

First of all, I could eat a box of white cheddar cheez-its in one go. Like, I’d prefer that as a movie snack over popcorn. Secondly, my husband brought home a bag of mini candybars from back home  and every time I have walked past it for the past 2 days, I’ve stolen at least a mini twix and a mini snickers. Last night in Bible study, we were eating mini m&ms one by one like spoiled children, lol. I never crave those things and didn’t even know I like them that much!

I love cheese, a lot. I could throw back a serious amount of cheese in one sitting, if I’m not careful. I’m not huge on sweets, but I am chowing down on a gingerbread man right now. ‘Tis the season.

I’m happy to eat one cookie or one piece of chocolate and will be totally satisfied. But when these little bastards are available to me I literally lose all self control. They are just SO. GOOD. If we are in the car I have to hand the bag to D D and be like “ keep them away from me!” If you have not tried them, I insist you rush out and buy a bag immediately.
