McDonald’s McRib Sandwich
i remember the mc-rib from road trips as a kid (basically the only time the parents let us have fast food) i’m sure if i tried it now it’d be a disappointment, but the combo of vinegary pickles and sweet bbq sauce was a win.

You Think You’re Alone Now: A Casual Survey of Idiosyncratic Eating
for food guilty pleasures, there are 2 things in the fridge that i will just pour into my mouth. if i’m in a sweets mood, aerosol whipped cream. if i’m in a savory mood, i’ll open up that half finished jar of pasta sauce and take a “swig”. i also do other less weird things, like grab a slice of cheese and a slice of meat and roll them together. or eat a whole tomato as though it was an apple (preferably with salt and pepper shakers nearby to use as needed)

the term “garbage food bowl” reminds me of a local (rochester ny) “delicacy” (ok, late night drunk food) called the garbage plate. it’s weird and horrid and delicious. but an acquired taste for sure. http://rocwiki.org/Garbage_Plates
