Foods that you love so much you enjoy them even when it's a terrible version

I have a friend who likes french fries so much, that she'll eat frozen ones straight out of the Ore Ida bag. I have a similar thing with burritos where I will still pretty much always enjoy them, even if it's a bad frozen burrito. Do you have any foods like that?

  1. Have you ever resorted to those vending machine burritos? If you can stomach those, then it really is "true love".

        One of those late-night, gotta get it out last-minute bankruptcy petitions?

    2. I think I've yet to meet an enchilada I would turn my nose up at.

      1. Onion rings. Good ones are sublime but to me there is no such thing as an inedible one. Even the bad ones are good.

          You've obviously never had one of them from Sonic. Gross-tastic.

            Oh yes I have. Just last week, as a matter of fact. Not my favorite, but still just fine, especially when they're still very hot.

          2. Nope... I have to say that if I love a certain food, eggplant parm, for instance, it has to taste good or I can't eat it. Poor quality ruins the experience for me and makes me cranky.

            Frozen fries from the fridge? Shudderrrrrrr.
