I have a reputation among certain friends as a junk food junkie who will eat whatever, whenever, wherever. I don’t think this reputation is completely unwarranted as I enjoy Ho Hos, Suzy Qs, and Ring Dings as much as anyone, and probably more. (Incidentally, in creating this post I stumbled across something I’d long been suspicious of: Hostess and Drake are owned by the same company, IBC.) Anyway, yes, I enjoy these tasty cakes, but not in excess, and really, I only eat them a couple times per month, if that. This shouldn’t brand me a junk food junkie, should it?
I made a can of corned beef hash the other morning and realized, “This is the worst food I eat.” It’s gross. A serving is half a can and contains 42% of my daily sodium and 55% of daily saturated fat. This is not a good thing to eat. I only eat half a can, but eating a whole can is easy and has been done. I love hash. That said, I don’t think I’ve eaten more than 3 servings of it this year.
So what’s the worst food you enjoy? Worst can be defined as something bad for you, something you think is tasty but gross (tongue, liver, etc), or could be something of a social conscious thing like veal. Leave your answer in the comments.
