swap you this!

Because I've been getting very entertaining and funny answers to my questions, here's another one:

What is your secret food shame?

Mine is absolutely revolting. I absolutely adore Dairylea Triangles (note: not any other Dairylea product, just the triangles). I love them. I could happily live on them. I have been known to eat an entire box of six little triangles in one sitting. And yet they are skanky processed cheese.

I also love Supernoodles in Barbecue Beef flavour, despite hating real beef and anything tasting of it (which BB supernoodles definitely do not). I really, really love them. I have them for dinner at least once a week. I am revolting.

So yes, we'd all like to think we live on nothing but organic hummous and fresh pasta, but let's face it, sometimes we just want a pot noodle. What is YOUR secret food shame?

Sorry, dear, but I did live with you, and consequently am under this illusion in no way at all!

Crisps. Scampi fries. And very occasionally, chips. I do eat revoltingly healthily, normally, if far too much.

Jalapeno poppers. Preferably with some kind of gooey, hot and sweet sauce (like a pepper jelly).

Or maybe Hamburger Helper.

I don't eat those things often, though. I suppose french fries, frozen and oven baked, would be a recurring shame.

Ooooh yes. Jalepeno poppers are very good indeed. Hmmmm -what else? Laughing cow processed cheese wedges - good on toast! And those pre-prepared fried noodle bowls - msg = yum!

My mind's gone blank. I know I'm not ashamed of peanut butter and jalapeno sandwiches, or litres of Tesco onion-and-garlic dip with almost anything dipped in it, or sandwiches containing nothing but pickled onions...

I think I lack a sense of shame. I refer you to the remark about the Paul Daniels budgie.

Which still hasn't stopped being hilarious, I might add. Paul Daniels! Ha!

Unsalted butter. Which I will just cut chunks off of and eat. It's like, "one for the pan, one for me - oh, maybe another for me". It's very disgusting, but I love it so (although it has to be unsalted - salted butter is evil).

Wheras I, on the other hand, just eat salt. Rock salt, for preference, but any salt will do. I can't be in the kitchen without taking a little pinch of salt and eating it. Hideously unhealthy.

Heh, barsine and I are so savoury-toothed that we both say that we would happily consume a salt lick, like a cow. And, when I was a kid and we had fish and chips at home (only once a week, that was our chip ration), I used to lick the salt-and-malt-vinegar off the plate. And I'd do it now, if I could manage to make fish-and-chips as sublime as my mother's (the gorgeous, melty batter, so unlike any batter in any chipper in the world....mmmmmmmmmmm).

Oh. I thought everyone licked salt-and-vinegar. I suspect I may have as-yet-uncovered food shame.
Nov. 12th, 2003 11:31 am (UTC)
Oh no, I'm not ashamed of that one - I was just illustrating my own salt-love. I'm only ashamed of my love of skanky processed rubbish.

I don't have any long term food shames, but I go through phases of thinking that something is *lovely* and eating it excessively. A couple of months ago, I read that oily fish is supposed to be good for dry skin conditions (if you eat it - I assume you weren't supposed to spread it on), and it made me think, hm, haven't had a tin of sardines for ages.

So I bought one, and I had them on toast, and thus began a sardine obsession. For the last month, I've had a tin of sardines every other day, more or less, straight from the tin. But I couldn't finish the last tin, so I think I may have dropped the sardine habit.

Last night, I bought a packet of iced gems.

Did you notice any changes in your skin?

Nachos, jalapenos and...cheese sauce.


I have more or less weaned myself off it though....

Everytime I go home I buy a box of galtee and stuff my face with it. I know it's vile unhealthy plastic stuff but I don't care - it's like childhood in silver paper.

Candy corn. I don't even like candy corn, it is nasty stuff, the colors are scary, it looks like dayglo alien corn, anyone over the age of five rejects it. But if I start to eat it, I can't stop. And then I hate myself. *sobs*

damn, i don't think i have any food shame! start a thread about inadvisable foods people have at some point eaten, and i'll gladly contribute.

I survived for 6 months in Azerbaijan on McDonalds and doner kebabs. In my defence, the stove in my flat didn't work, and McD's was the only moderately cheap restaurant I could go into as a lone female and actually get served. Though I do kind of like the taste of McDonalds, and every so often I'll get a craving (usually hungover) for it. I generally resist, though.

Also: raw bacon. I know.
