What is your personal "junk food" weakness?

To help with a few light-hearted debates here is one! What is your personal "junk food" weakness that you struggle with?

French fries? Chips? Pizza? Ice cream? Candy? Something else?

Other related questions: 1)When are you most vulnerable to this craving? and 2)What do you do to avoid?

Ummm, All of the above.

ETA - I forgot to add I am most vulnerable when I have PMS, and when I am upset.

Ice Cream, esp Milkshakes with French Fries. I'm most vulnerable to it when I'm hungry and even more so when I'm hungry AND moody. I don't try to avoid it ROFL I know I'll eat it once in a while and that's that. I don't eat junk food otherwise hardly ever.

All of it lol.

I would have the hardest time eliminating ice cream. I LOVE ice cream. But sweets, fried foods etc. all good too lol

I love ice cream too... and chocolate... and cookies... mmmmm.... now i'm hungry! not crazy over fried things. Honestly, my hardest would be drinks. Esp Pepsi.

I def eat on spots in my cycle. And when I stress.

Reese's pb cups, McDonald's french fries, and chocolate peanut butter ice cream. Or my favorite ice cream dessert from a local restaurant - it's called a PBF Chipper, and has chocolate ice cream, chocolate chip ice cream, hot fudge, peanut butter fudge and a Reese's on top. I ate so many of those when I was pregnant with Thomas :oops: .

Chocolate-covered vanilla ice cream. I'd kill for a Dairy Queen cone right now.

poutine, though it's so bad for you and so addictive I hardly ever eat it. That's like a double serving of Lactaid before eating all that cheese curd.

I love con queso and chips. love love love. DH says "You want some chips with your dip?" all the time.

I also love Purdy's peanut butter filled chocolates sprinkled with Himalayan pink sea salt. OMG. To die for.

Popcorn drenched in butter and salt. Yum.

Back in the clubbing days there was a place right across the street called Bubba's. They served poutine. It was probably a pound of fries, salt, white cheese curd and gravy. It would put back on all the calories you just danced off your a$$.

Did you know that McDonald's has dipped cones -- or at least ours does.

Today has been one of those "I need some chocolate" days. Good thing the girls have a huge Halloween bowl.

I have to have Coke....every day. Have to have it. I know it is bad for me and I truly don't care.

We stopped yesterday and my kid ate a few bites of his Dilly bar and told me he didn't like it!! To be fair he wanted a chocolate cone and this DQ didn't have it. I had a cherry cheesecake mini blizzard and am thinking about driving the 45 minutes to get me one tomorrow.

I called today after I read this and the one in my city doesn't. Boooo. But I will keep it in mind next time I am abroad!! Thanks CameNoodle!

I love Poutine too. I make it a couple times a year for my kids. Cheesemaking is a hobby of mine so I have cheese curd occasionally and either put it in lasagna or this. Bisto gravy really works well, I don't know why poutine hasn't made it big in the UK yet!

Bisto is a gravy staple in our house Smile and it still is in my parents' too. But I'm fit to be tied when looking for the poultry Bisto. It's mostly just the beef stuff. I have to drive far for the poultry kind. Stupid. I love warm curd. We'd buy it from the local store, fresh from the cheese factory, all warm and slippery and salty. Yummy.
