Goes without saying that liquid bread does not go into the junk food category for me.

I love the thick sturgis pretzels but I stopped eating them when I found out one pretzel was a serving .

Oh cool!!

I really love breaded deep fried veggies with malt vinegar but I always felt that they were really just another form of junk food. But now that you've examined the issue and pronounced carrots not junk food under any circumstance, I think it's safe to extrapolate this veggie theme to include onion rings, deep fried mushrooms and my all time fave tempura style artichoke hearts with Parmesan cheese (from a green can) sprinkled on top.

Off to the store

Popcorn, definitely popcorn. I eat it so often DH can spot the (I am about to beg for popcorn) face I make before asking him to make me some. At least its air popped (and yet still topped with real butter and salt) now, used to do the nasty microwave stuff though the best is butter popped on the stove, yum.

Other than popcorn, it depends on the season, day and mood. I can develop cravings for any type of junk food on a temporary basis.

You are correct . They are not junk food . Junk food has no food merit . Fried veggies are still veggies just embellished .

Beer is definitely not junk food . It is needed nourishment especially on hot days or during football season . Hot wings are also not junk food . Is roasted chicken junk food ? No , well hot wings are just chicken parts cooked differently and they usually come with celery sticks which are healthy .

No... not quite. We still haven't discussed those fun little fried cherry pies from McDonalds. Haven't seen them in a while, but they were really excellent with coffee late at night

Chex Mix. Either commercially available or homemade. I could eat bags and bags and bags of it. It's actually part of the reason I donate blood regularly -- they have the snack-sized bags of it in the snack basket for after you've donated, and I only let myself have it then.

I also have a shameful fondness for white bread sandwiches with Miracle whip, Oscar Meyer bologna and Kraft Singles. Can't call it anything other than junk food, haven't had one in over ten years but crave them often.

Deep-fried wasabi peas and a pilsner, also a good match.

Now I'm hungry. Thanks for doing this on weigh-in Wednesdays, folks.

Apple fritters don't count . After all apples are fruit and healthy or why else would they say "An apple a day keeps the doctor away " but cinnabons and chocolate chip cookies are definitely junk food . Good tasty junk food but still junk food ! Unless you eat a Cinnabon at the airport then it is necessary stress food .

It is if you are diabetic. Of course, so is everything else, pretty much.
