Take a Bite: Guilty Pleasure Foods

September 22, 2009 at 10:44 am , by

cookieAfter reading Lisa’s great post on guilty pleasure movies, I got to thinking about guilty pleasures of another sort — the foods we eat. Now we all know that having a nutritious and well-balanced diet is crucial for our health and well-being, but I believe it’s equally important to indulge every once (or twice) in a while, whether it’s scarfing down Doritos in the afternoon or treating yourself to cake when there’s nothing to celebrate.

Sometimes sneaking in a favorite snack or meal does wonders to perk up your day, even if you know deep down (but choose to ignore) how bad it is for you. My boss introduced me to a café around the corner here in our New York office that sells the warmest, gooiest, most decadent chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had — literally a piece of heaven in your mouth. They’re soft, freshly baked cookie bars that are the size and shape of brownies — giant chocolate chunks and all. I know how much havoc it would wreak on my tummy if I indulged in these cookies too often, but sometimes, during a long and busy day, they hit the spot and cheer me up more than a piece of celery ever could.

Now that you’re salivating (and before you go off to find some chocolate chip cookies of your own) tell me, what’s YOUR guilty pleasure food?

  4. Target’s jalapeno pretzels! They’re so good. I couldn’t find them at my last trip there, maybe discontinued? Say it ain’t so.

  5. I love desserts, so anything with chocolate or cheesecake is definitely on my list of guilty pleasures. Chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream is a given on that list.
