Guilty Pleasure Food

Online, the circles I run around with are food lovers. Foie gras is a term I hearused more times in a month than most people will ever hear in their lifetime. Still, with all this good dining we experience, I wonder what is everyone’s guilty pleasure food, the food that makes you feel disgusted and ashamed of yourself after you’ve eaten it. If you’re anything like Michelle these items include Del Taco Chicken Soft Tacos, Egg McMuffins, and Carl’s Jr. Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwiches.¬†What is that fast food menu item you will go back to, and why is it always after drinking?

After a few craft beers and a Scotch tasting at The Daily Pint, Tim, Trevor, and I were hungry so we went outside where the South Philly Experience food truck was serving up cheesesteaks. Cheese Wiz is pretty gross, but their steak is pretty decent. I was expecting a sandwich like from the Great Steak and Potato Company that has a shop in the mall.

The point of this post wasn’t to point out cheesesteaks as my guilty pleasure food. They are merely the intro to the gluttonous story.

McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets. Yes, I know they’re made from pink goo, but they’re awesome. Even after they switched over to all white meat, they still stayed squishy and delicious. This is one of the gross foods I like to eat.

What makes it even worse is that we ordered 50 pieces. Trevor told us the story about how he did this the night before after a late night of drinking, so we made him do it again. How can you resist? It’s only $10!

I now regret this decision. Trevor brought up the point that all food costs the same. You may just pay for it later, normally while sitting on a porcelain throne.

Big Food

I’ve started my new year’s resolution to lose some weight and get in better shape. In order to help myself I am watching Food Inc. and Supersize Me during my sick day at home in order to develop some irrational hatred for food.

Food Inc. is more about big business and the efficiencies that slip through their fingers as they tighten their grip to gain efficiency. It just happens to be about the food industry. It makes me want to start a vegetable garden and raise some chickens in my backyard just to stick it to the man.

I haven’t eaten a whole lot of fast food recently, because I know it’s not good for me. Supersize Me just seemed to be one of those documentaries about doing dumb things just to get some attention. We all know the food at fast food restaurants is bad for you. Cut it out.

All this movie watching has made me hungry. I’m going to get something to eat, but not McDonald’s. I’m going to In-N-Out!

Fine, I’ll just get a cheeseburger.

We’ve all had that one time where we have raced to McDonald’s only to find out breakfast is no longer being served. It’s one of the worst feelings in the world. It’s a rejection almost on par with getting dumped. Every time I wake up early I feel like I have to go to McDonald’s and get breakfast. It’s not that I even want a Sausage McMuffin and hash browns. I just want to feel vindicated after all those rejections in the past.

Maybe I should stick to Jack in the Box, breakfast twenty four hours a day.

Ice Around Ronald McDonald’s Neck

This is what McDonald’s now has for their Happy Meal toys. Nothing says hip hop like the Big Mac.

I hear the next toy out in the series is an icy grill.
