Mine, I must confess, is Cocktail Sauce. You know. Pink mayo. Sauce rose as the French say. It has to be commercial, it has to come from a jar. And no, ketchup mixed with mayo is NOT the same.
I have to watch myself, because I'd eat it out of the jar.
With a spoon.
Or my fingers.
I'd spread it on toast if I was let.

What about you?

Roasted salted macadamia nuts, with a nice glass of sauvignon-blanc. Guilty as in the terribly-bad-for-me stakes, rather than as shameful.

Of the shameful variety - sweet'n'sour battered chicken balls from the Chinese (I know, I know!) or fried bread fried egg sandwiches (crispy white, broken and cooked all-the-way through yolk).

Dairylea triangles, fish finger sandwichs, Heinz sandwich spread, fish sticks, the parson's nose off the chicken, skin on custard (I'm sick I know), Galaxy Ripple. I would go on but its almost time for me to go home.

Ahh, what in the US they call a "hard fried" egg, or an "over hard" egg. Here in Spain, they call em shoe leather! LOL I remember being in Madrid airport in the caff behind a line of US students and about 8 of them wanted hard-fried eggs. The frycook looked at me and I said, "I'll have a "normal egg" (over easy) please!" He was so chuffed he gave me 2.

Crab sticks and smoked salmon. I made myself sick one day by eating one kg of crab sticks in one evening... but I cannot indulge in smoked salmon a lot :( unless it is on special offer.

Yeah, that why I felt so queasy afterwards most probably. Even the red skin is E something... still, I love the stuff. Put on the table a kilo of so called crab stick and a kilo of Leonidas Belgian Chocolates, I'll fight you for the crab sticks... **smiles**

DH is mad on those surimi sticks. There is indeed no crab in them, just cheap fish, soy, and flavourings.

Mmm - crunchy buttery bread and eggy squish. Heaven! Very, very, very, VERY bad for one, though :(

I know it's such an art to get the perfect soft fried egg, and not break the yolk etc, but I just like things well cooked in general. I don't like runny yolks, or rare meat, or un-cremated bacon. I think I am a bit of a heathen, really!

I haven't. The only Jewish food we ever ate at home was bagels and potato latkes!

How about bacon joints from the hot counter of the supermarket taken home and immediately sliced into a warm sandwich with mustard.

Oh yes, icecream! I'm not a fan of Ben & Jerry's (they discontinued the only two I liked - New York Superfudge Chunk *and* Vanilla Toffee Crunch - and I've never forgiven them!) but I absolutely love Hagen Dazs, especially the pralines and cream (my former favourite) and the mint leaves and chocolate (my new favourite). Movenpick is amazing, too, but hard to get in the UK (it's a Swiss company, I think - it's everywhere there).

The best icecream I've ever had was gelato on my one trip to Italy. So incredible, and gelaterias everywhere with so many amazing flavours. The best I had was a really intense cantaloupe (which I'd never thought of making icecream out of) and black pepper one. I can still taste it and it was five years ago! Many outstanding pistachio icecreams also.

My guilty icecream pleasure is Vienetta.
