Food you are ashamed to say you like!

Okay. I admitted I like certain kinds of commercial junk food, like Doritos, and that I like Egg Foo Young and other gloppy americanized chinese food basics (hey, man cannot live on authentic Hong Kong-style dim sum and fancy taiwanese food). I figured this was a good topic to start for people to vent in.

Here's my list:

Junk Foods:

Cheese puffs (yeah, the stuff dusted with cheese powder thats like packing material that makes your hands turn orange)
commercialized Beef jerky, in particular Slim Jims
Processed cheese spreads of all kinds
Cool whip
BacO's (yes, those horrid artificial bacon things)
fried Pork rinds

Mcdonalds, White Castle and Burger King


Americanized gloppy Cantonese stuff (i.e. Egg Foo Young, Moo Goo Gai Pan, Shrimp in lobster sauce)

commercial peanut butters like Peter Pan and Jiffy

I'm sure I forgot a few things, but they are too traumatic to talk about in front of such a refined group of people
