    I don't feel guilty eating junk food, I enjoy it as a treat. (Alternatively.. it's just fast convenient food).

    I'm partial to anything chocolate, I don't feel guilty, but I am known to overdo it.

    The highlight of my junk food career was a deep fried pizza kebab from a takeaway place on Morningside Road in 1993. Everything since then has been a monumental anti climax. (that's what she said)

    Didn't Sunderland change their "Welcome to ...' sign to something about Parmo's? Or maybe Doncaster?

    e: wrong on both counts it seems. Middllesbrough. What a headline though: It's Parmo-geddon

    I would have a hard time deciding between a good margarita pizza or a chicken burger (sandwich) & fries with mayo and chilli sauce drizzled over them.

    That's my go to junk food, dont really crave sweet stuff or crisps.

    Peanut butter Krispy Kreme's as a sweet junk food treat but like many others for savoury you can't beat a boneless bargain bucket from KFC.

    Takeaway most Fridays here. Curry, Chinese, Turkish or Mexican most often. Sometimes a dirty Kebab or Pizza.
