Embarrassing guilty pleasures

I'm in my, ahem, 50's and damn it, I still love Pop Tarts!
I buy them maybe once a year as a treat. A box of strawberry and a box of brown sugar cinnamon (and on very rare occasion a blueberry,) unfrosted of course. I toast one of each. Really toast em, dark brown edges. Then a little smear of butter. If the edges are nice and dark and hot, the butter will sizzle. Ah, perfection. Then eat with a slice of extra sharp cheddar and a glass of orange juice.
I grew up eating these and can't kick the habit. Just a kid at heart I guess. I've no use for all the wacko frosted flavors they come up with now, just the originals for me.
Anyone else care to spill the beans?
I have many.
Velveeta melted with salsa and eaten with corn chips.
Bacon dipped in mayo, hard boiled eggs dipped in mayo, green beans dipped in mayo. Hell, I'll just about put mayo on anything.
Baked beans from a can with sliced hot dogs mixed in it.
Cocktail sauce on celery sticks.
Deviled ham on crackers.
About once a year I crave tater tots dipped in mayo (of course), ketchup and Dijon.
sweet gerkins dipped in pimento cheese
Cheddar and sweet pickles eaten together on a cracker.
Chefboyardee spaghetti and meatballs eaten on iceburg lettuce leaves like a taco and two kitties to share the meatballs(they haven't told daddy that secret)
Grilled peanutbutter and cheese sandwiches
Cheddar cheese on salmon if the man is cooking
Now that i see it in print, oh my. Sheesh
Well, look- people are wallowing in their guilty pleasures. Either back out of the thread, or enjoy it for what it is, as in people who like food that the hoi polloi think a 'foodie' shouldn't. If you're grossed out, please take your grossness elsewhere and let people vent out their crazed guilty pleasures without judgement- this should be a safe place to share. You may be new to this site, and therefore need to learn that you shouldn't judge others' tastes, because, as this thread shows, everybody has a culinarily challenged area. being grossed out is your right, but posting it will get you nowhere, except maybe thrown out of here, and also get you nobody's respect. You might consider avoiding the "guilty pleasure" topics if you're such a delicate flower.
