Foods you can't keep in the house because you can't stop yourself eating them

I cannot have cheese in the house unless I'm planning to cook with it - and even then it is likely I'll scoff it before using it for the recipe for which it is intended.
Almonds get nuked and munched at midnight.
Peanut butter seems to evaporate.

What foods do you avoid buying because you know you won't be able to resist their lure when the munchies strike?

  1. Left over fried chicken. That's my number one snack food. I love it cold or hot.

    1. I buy prosciutto and capicola by the 2-pound order and still, it goes very, very fast.

      Pastries from the Italian bakery disappear very quickly in our house - far more quickly than the dieters in the house will admit...

      1. - dark chocolate-covered ginger or espresso beans
        - carob-covered raisins
        - frozen yogurt
        - dehydrated veggie snacks (medley of green beans, carrots & squash, not the chips colored with vegetable powder)
        - Glad Corn - the good news with this one is that i can't find it around here, so i'd have to order it online anyway.
