Are Peanut M&Ms considered healthy? A pound or so of them is all I need to satisfy that after dinner hunger pang. After Halloween I can usually get them on sale and stock on on a year's supply (365 bags)!

Sorry to hear that. The one thing I have to watch is my cholesterol. High cholesterol runs in the family, so I have to limit my saturated fat intake. So I can't have too much of the "good stuff". But perhaps "the good stuff" is just the stuff you can't have!

The peanuts are healthy . The coating is not . So scrape off the coating and send it to me and just eat the peanuts !

The red and white peppermint hard candy. I go through bags of it. I also limit myself on buying Hot Tamales and Sun Chips French Onion. I like ice cream too. Candy is definitely my downfall though.

Junk food puts junk in my trunk....

oooooohhhhh, but I thought of another one. Anytime I'm on the road traveling a long distance, I HAVE to have a Zero candy bar.

My apology to our forum member Zero if this post offends...

When I was a little boy going to the lake on summer afternoons, when I came out from swimming half starved and blue a Zero Bar was what I craved.

My only current junk food is pork rinds, and since going low carb I have re-classified that as health food. The supermarkets evidently do not agree. Not going to find any pork rinds at Trader Joe or Wholefoods or Pacific Consumers Co-op. However plenty of them at latin markets under chicharrones, or at Safeway in not so great neighborhoods.

I like to stuff them with a mixture of raw garlic, feta cheese, finely chopped jalapeņos and a little olive oil.

How about pickled pigs' feet. Is that junk food or a great low carb snack?



Ha

Excellent! The government should put you in charge of reconstructing the food pyramid.

Just the thought of a lusty wench purring, "come here my delicious candy bar..." makes me........... Oops, junk food was the topic, Cheetos, till my fingers, hand and all the way up to my elbow are coated in orange, then lick it off.

Chocolate, peanut butter, caramel, nuts in very nearly any combination, highest on the list are:
Reece's Peanut Butter cups
Peanut M&M's
Peanut Butter M&M's

Chocolate covered pretzels
Chocolate cake
Brownies
Ice Cream, by itself or loaded with brownies and candy and fudge and caramel...
Donuts (Boston Creme and chocolate frosted chocolate honey-glazed)

Also love French Fries with cheese and ketchup; or the local pizza shop's Mega Fries with cheddar sauce, provolone, bacon, red onions, and ranch dressing. Pizza is good, too.

One of the most decadently delicious meals I've had was at a Black Bear Restaurant in Oregon: a big ol' cinnamon bun sliced and cooked French Toast style with maple syrup. Whoa, did I ever get a sugar rush from that.

Peanut butter

The Smucker's All Natural actually calls me to the kitchen cupboard and hands me a spoon. I haven't had it in years because I know not to bring it in the house. So I buy something like JIF which I can resist. But if I eat a little, I end up eating a lot so I stay away from it.

That is how I feel about sour cream & onion potato chips . I'll be just relaxing watching TV and I'll hear "Eat me " "Eat me " and I'll give in to the temptation. That's why they rarely enter my house .

Good one!
I just lost 3 lbs and this thread is killing me.

Another fave of mine is celery stalks or sliced apples with lots of creamy peanut butter. The ol' Devil/Angel syndrome and actually pretty healthy junk food.

I confess that I love just about any food or snack...it's a curse.

Let's see...where to start? CHOCOLATE....straight up, covered, dipped, smothered, or whatever!!! Especially liked the chocolate candy bar I found that had almonds and jalapeņos in it!

~ Sour Gummi Bears....I buy 'em in 1 pound bags at the local farm store.
~ Candy-coated licorice bits (the generic 'Good n Plenty')...same deal at the farm store.
~ Spice drops.
~ Chili cheese fries (with Tabasco or similar)!
~ Nachos with jalapeņo cheese and jalapeņo rings!
~ Pringles.
~ String cheese and generic 'slim jim' spicy or hot sausage sticks.
~ PIE....any kind...any time....but especially cherry (just finished off a cherry pie Tuesday evening, and a friend gave me another one yesterday...life is gooood)!!!
~ Deep-fried whatever!
~ Crunchy Cheetos...especially the "hot" variety!!!

And for what it's worth....my blood work always comes back with everything well within the acceptable range! Must be all the hot peppers and spicy food I eat! Hahaha!!!
