Thursday Thirteen #5

I'm getting an early start this week. :-) Since I'm feeling snackish today, and of the opinion that you should get to eat whatever you want when you don't feel good, my list is about junk food.

Thirteen Junk/Comfort Foods I Just Love

1. Reese's peanut butter cups
2. Cheetos (the crunchy kind, not the puffs)
3. Chocolate chip cookies (preferably homemade)
4. A peppermint mocha from Starbucks (OK, it's a drink, not a food, but there's no way it can be considered good for you!)
5. A chicken biscuit with cheese from Chick-Fil-A (if you live somewhere that isn't graced with the presence of Chick-Fil-A, you are missing out and have my deepest sympathies)
6. Ruffles sour cream and onion chips
7. Ruffles cheddar and sour cream chips
8. Cheese grits (breakfast, yes, and not strictly junk food, but by the time you add a big ol' glob of butter and cheese, it's not anywhere near the healthy list, either)
9. Wheat Thins, eaten with cream cheese topped with pepper jelly (hmm, I may have to get some Wheat Thins....)
10. Baked potato with cheese and ranch dressing (I guess this falls more in the "comfort" than the "junk" category)
11. Chili (I think this is my ultimate favorite food when I feel rotten - good melty cheese, nice and spicy, that's just about guaranteed to make any ailment seem a little less miserable)
12. Peanut butter fudge ice cream from Target (their store brand - it's delish!)
13. Grilled cheese sandwich and/or cheese toast

Oh, man, your killing me! (I'm dieting.) I'd have to add Doritos to your list. And Kettle Korn. Happy TT! Joely

DK said...

I love this list! I am a Cheetos "Puff" person myself. Thanks loads for giving me the munchies... I'm heading to the kitchen. Happy Thursday! Drop by my blog any time,

Rashenbo said...

Just give me all this! :) I'm a junk food junkie. It's why I can't seem to successfully diet. I just can't stop myself from NEEDING all these yummy goodnesses. :)

Thanks for sharing and happy Thursday.

Nancy J. Bond said...

Ohhh...#9 AND 10! Yum! Great list!

Nancy -

amy said...

Please go visit my hubbys TT at

he works for Chik Fil A and would enjoy reading your list. I know I did. What a yummy list! Thanks for visiting mine

scribbit said...

Chips and dip--oh I love that stuff. Normally I hate potato chips, but pile on the calories and I'm in heaven.

Barbara said...

Great list. I like nearly all of these. You started your lists with one of the best candies!

Check out TT.

JohnH985 said...

You're making me hungry right now. Junk food is the best type of food.

My 13 are up.

PJ said...

Yum, I may have to do my own junk food TT sometime. My 13 are up:

Christy said...

Ha! I take your chick-fil-a pity and I offer you White Castle pity in its stead. There's nothing like a basket of chicken rings on a stressful day.

Jill said...

We don't have the store/restaurant that you say around my place...
Half of that I don't really consider junk food, just not really healty meals!!
My tt are up

Dane Bramage said...

My Thursday Thirteen is up. It is #28 and it is about My 13 Trigger Foods.. Most of them are junk food. But not to leave anything out I included fruits. :-)

Miranda said...

OMG Im so hungry now. Great List!!!

Happy TT!

Cari said...

Great yummy list! Wonderful theme for TT!

Lisa said...

Chicken rings? Um, Christy, what part of the chicken does the ring come from? That's just unnatural. LOL I may have to see these chicken rings for myself while we're in St. Louis.

Bubba said...

Grilled cheese....I just might have one of those tonight...

Your list is making me hungry too!

Happy TT...thanks for stopping by!

Janet said...

I love my grits with hot sauce!

laurie_pooh said...

I'm drinking a mocha mint from Starbucks right now!

I'm both a salty & sweet kind of gal... sounds like you're mostly salty :)

Crystal said...

Great list...

I LOVE grilled cheese, cheetos, peanut butter cups, and homemade chocolate chip cookies too. YUM. Sounds like a good time for a midnight snack! ;)

Christina said...

Potatos are obviously a reoccuring theme in comfort foods :)
