5 Foods I Am (Only Somewhat) Ashamed to Say I Love

Following CNN’s James Oseland’s lead…

5 Foods I Am (Only Somewhat) Ashamed to Say I Love
1. McDonald’s Filet O’ Fish Sandwich – When made right, the crispy deep fried mystery white fish with the creamy-can’t-get-enough-of-it tartar sauce and a toasty WHITE/refined bread product. YUM.
2. Cheddar and Sour Cream Flavored Ruffles – Ever since my first taste at a young age, I have always loved the artificial cheese taste combined with the even more artificial tangy taste of the sour cream powder. Salivating just thinking about it.
3. Olive Garden Breadsticks and Salad – It’s probably one of the most commercialized representations of what a real Italian restaurant is, but I love the pillowy, warm breadsticks made with overly processed carbs sprinkled with probably-purchased-in-bulk garlic salt. How can you not love the tangy crunchy salad with their signature dressing.
4. Hostess cupcakes, ding dongs and twinkies – I love fake cake. What can I say?
5. Baskin Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip Icecream – Real mint doesn’t taste like this, but fake mint tastes so good! They’ve got the perfect ratio of choco bits and the size of the bits allow for a nice uniform crunch with the creaminess of the icecream.

Anyone else have “bad” foods that they love?

  1. I totally agree with you on the Filet-O-Fish. However, I’m only willing to pay a dollar for it so I get it when I get McD’s coupons in the mail (unless I’m super craving it). I would also add to that, McD’s fries (THE BEST!) and their chicken nuggets. I’d classify all those as comfort food for me.

    I also have powdered donuts in my list (Hostess, Entemann’s, you name it, I like it). They don’t have that deep fried lingering flavor that some other cake donuts and day old donuts have.

    The last thing on my list is Nissin’s chicken ramen. It’s about the consistency of the noodles and that good ol’ salty, MSG bouillon taste that makes it another comfort food of mine.

  2. oh! i totally agree about the McD’s Fried and the round nuggets!! the powdered donuts are great too. they’re comforting, powdery sweet and cakey =)

    and i so love chicken ramen! i used to make it with more concentrated by using less water to cook it and jazz it up with siracha! hahah!
