    Not talking about things that are bad for you or will make you fat. I'm interested in stuff that you ordinarily wouldn't admit you like. I will start.

    (Can't believe I'm doing this)...

    Oreos
    Kraft Mac and Cheese
    Big Macs

    I heard Kraft Dinner is really, really popular in Canada. Aren't all of the items you've listed considered bad and fattening?

    I am a little ashamed to admit that I still like those coke-flavored jelly and those red, sugary, over sized, puffy nipple-shaped marshmallow treats. I'll always get them at 7-11 stores, and I get them with cigarettes still, lol.

    I like Baileys Irish Cream, Jack and Coke, malt liquor, and Grape Fanta. Of course, not all at once!

    All my items seem to be bad for people as well in general.

    Oh yes. Absolutely. But just because something is unhealthy (BBQ ribs for instance) doesn't mean that it's embarrassing to admit liking. Though most of the humiliating stuff is the MOST dreadful from a health standpoint.

    Another one of mine: Yoo Hoo. Godawful stuff...

    Kimchi. That spicy, salty, sour, garlicky pickled cabbage dish. Just incredible when it's fresh off the grill with some toasty pork belly. But I know the aftermath in all possible incarnations is gonna be potent and meaningful for myself and those around me.

    I get these cravings to eat one particular thing. When I was single I would happily eat a meal consisting only of grean peas or edamame beans or some such. Getting the family to go along with that idea is kinda hard.

    Rye bread. A good loaf of rye bread in the scandinavian/north german tradition is something else.

    My favourite snack/candy is dades. Around christmas time I'll happily forego all the other types of candy.

    I like just about everything so I don't think I qualify within the thread's criteria.

    Also, I'm not sure why anyone would be ashamed to admit liking something that's "bad for you"...ya' likes what ya' likes.

    Peanut butter, jelly and bacon on toast. Because everything tastes better with bacon.

    Cocktail Tacos, the ones found in the TV dinner aisle. I'm not even sure they make them anymore.

    I'm am well aware that this isn't even close to the pinnacle of pizzadom but sometimes I will go have lunch at a Pizza Inn buffet because I get a hankering for their crackery thin crust pizza.

    Toasted Reuben Sandwiches...been on a kick with these the past several weeks....corned beef, swiss cheese, sauerkraut, fat-free thousand island dressing on toasted pumpernickel...mmmm...

    Also, Grilled Seasoned BBQ-Sauced Chicken and/or Grilled Seasoned Shrimp....all these are awesome on a warm spring or summer afternoon evening, returning to the A/C in your home and a cold drink...

    Yeah, I can eat an entire bag of Funions in one sitting. My wife buys them occasionally. We also dig salt and vinegar pork rinds.

    This thread prompted an impromptu cowtails run

    Man, our store used to stock chocolate cow-tails some years back...then we had to find space for the more important recent confections selections (ah, a pun) that took up room in our display. Still have got Necco wafers, though...those things never go out of style...

    Every once in a while I will buy a can of Vienna Sausages. Yes I do.

    I only eat 2-3 and ditch the rest but the guilt and shame lingers ;)

    I used to love them when I was a kid, for that matter most everyone ate them when I was growing up.
