do you have a secret junk food obsession?

I mean the kind that you buy in packages in the grocery store (so fries and donuts don't count ). And potato chips don't count either, since they contain only natural ingredients.

I don't buy a lot of processed foods, make almost everything from scratch, and generally eat pretty healthy stuff. But...I have a secret weakness for...cheetos (shhh!).

Yep. That gross, neon orange goop that sticks to your fingers? LOVE it.

Happily, I hardly ever indulge it. The last time was probably 5 or 6 years ago.

What about you?

OMG I love Cheetos!! And Fritos.

But I had microwave popcorn - Kettle Corn flavor - for the first time a few months ago, and now I can't get enough of it.

Every once in a while I buy one of those dollar bags of Doritos...that's about as close as I come to the dark side in the junk food aisle.

As a whole-food loving vegetarian, I am not too proud to admit that though I've never eaten at a McDonald's or Burger King, I certainly am familiar with crunchy bean tacos at Taco Bell.

Trader Joes makes a sesame seed snack cracker that are only about an inch long and kidney shaped. OMG, I can eat a whole bag in one sitting. What really makes my heart go pitter patter though, are WaWa's (a gas station/convenient store chain here) fresh baked coffee cakes.

Greenport ferals, I'm not a vegetarian, but I with you on the fast food thing. I HATE fast food restaurants - I stopped going 25 years ago. I prefer a nice bowl of soup (almost any kind will do) with extra veggies added and fresh spinach mixed in. That is a perfect lunch or dinner for me.

I never buy Cheetos because I love them too. My biggest obsession is ice cream/gelato/froyo/etc. I try not to keep it in the house but my kids love it too, so it really isn't fair to deprive them because I am a maniac about it. It also doesn't help that within a 3 mile radius there are two gelato places, 4 froyo joints, and the best ice cream around.

Dogs have owners, cats have staff.

Not terribly secret but I love sugar. Mostly in the forms of sour candy and energy drinks.

Wow I don't feel so alone anymore! I'm surrounded by fellow Cheetos fans! I've never liked Cheez Doodles (or however it's spelled) though. Too puffy and not neon orange enough. Or maybe it's just the tiger with his sunglasses that attracts us cat people.

They must be the human equivalent to Fancy Feast. I'll have to stop making fun of my girls.

MowMow, did you actually lose 180 lbs.???? That sounds like a superhuman feat.

I am mourning Chester Cheetah, whom I bumped off tonight, after only 3 days. He lived only 3 days.

Good thing he has many clones.

Peeps! I always buy one package, every year. I eat one and only one. I give the rest to my son. Been doing that for years. I get so happy when I buy them. I like looking at them, they are so cute, wether the bunnies or the little birds. Usually get the pink ones. I think I am more enamored of the idea of Peeps than actually eating them. A little weird but it makes me happy! And I do love Cheetos too! I have t had them in years, maybe I will get a bag for old times sake!
