Junk Food!

So the past few months, I've been all about the health food. Reading labels, thinking about sodium, and avoiding all the good stuff.


Now, I want some junk food!

What about you folks? What is the absolute worst for your health junk food that you enjoy and would recommend?

Papa Johns The Works pizza. Very unhealthy but sometimes it just hits the spot.

The junk food muse has spoken to me...

Hasbrowns, sausage, bacon, cheese, ham, and gravy. With plenty of grease and salt.

I agree that these are quite tasty. But, I fear that for someone who ultimately chose this ...

... Jelly Bellies wouldn't be anywhere NEAR unhealthy enough.

Oh, and MetalPants, nicely done. I love good greasy breakfast food. Never get it, but I love it.

I recently visited my family in my home state and had biscuits and sausage gravy, with eggs (and sometimes cheese) and hash browns 5 of the 7 days I was there. It was SO bad for me, but tasted SO good. It'll probably be another 7 years before I have it again ... if the heart attack doesn't take me first. LOL!

Re: Junk Food!

Mcdonalds
Quarter pounder with Cheese plus a lovely chocolate sundue
But what l find is some cashiers will give you the chocolate sundue and it will be full of icecream but not enough topping or it is spilling over the cup.
They dont seem to teach the staff the basic skills of making things

Double bacon cheeseburger with extra ranch dressing and mayo with extra bleucheese.

But have your cardiologist on speed dial.

NOOOO, no, no, no, no! Here's the perfect burger: 3 patties, pepper-jack cheese, red onions, and plenty of ketchup and sweet pickle relish

Re: Junk Food!

I'm a sucker for ice cream and anything resembling or derivative thereof: yoghurt (frozen or otherwise), gelati, thickshakes, etc.

I treated myself to a McDonald's thickshake last night and it totally wrecked my sleep; my body evidently having grown accustomed to minimal sugar intake.

I happen to like Quarter Pounders with cheese. And double Quarter Pounders. Chacun à son goût.

I also like convenience-store hot dogs with plenty of mustard and chopped onions, but I don't know if they're unhealthy enough to count as junk food. They actually have some protein in them.

Oh, and Fritos!
