Vienna Sausages (Can't put my finger on it.)
Vanilla Wafers (They did something unknown.)
McDonald's French Fries (They no longer use coconut oil in the oil blend.)
Peter Pan Peanut Butter (They cut out some of the sugar.)

I would not say I love it, but something I like which I know others think is horrible is Cool Whip. I love real whipped cream and do not see the two as the same thing at all, but I do like the taste of Cool Whip. I even like putting it in the freezer and eating it with a spoon.

For the one time a year I eat pie, Cool Whip suits me fine. The last time I bought it I had to get the canned stuff. It just wasn't the same as the tub.

I remember a comedy bit from decades ago in which George Carlin was playing the part of a food factory foreman going through a list of ingredients with a factory worker and trying to figure out what it was making. He made jokes about each ingredient as it was added to the pot and when it was all done he threw his hands up and said, "Make it white and call it Cool Whip".

None come to mind right away as I was junk food deprived as a child.

However, I eat hot dogs about once a week and feel no guilt. I have my deep fryer out now so I think I'll make some corn dogs. That'll be a first.

I eat ramen noodles too. Except I use half the water (1 Cup) and eat it as a noodle dish.

I could never stomach Chef Boy-ar-dee but my kids loved it.

I don't consider any of them blasphemous.

I had some Spaghetti Os last year. Bought a can out of the blue because someone mentioned them. They were just like I remembered them. Kind of mushy, but certainly edible.
A lot of people call the food out of their past comfort food. I wouldn't go that far

Oh boy could we get a fight brewing in this thread. I like all kinds of fake foods. AND...I use them all the time. LOL! I'm like GB, just because I like something real doesn't mean I don't still love the crap food too. LOL!

Short list:

KD
Cheez Whiz
Kraft Singles
Velveeta (Mmmmm...mixed with salsa for chips!!!)
Mini Ravioli
Ramen


Oh the list goes on. I am seeing a theme though...Kraft is my friend. Please note, I did NOT mention their parmesan cheese...oops! *running and hiding*

Okay, I thought of something. I don't love them, seldom buy them, but will definitely munch them at a party: any kind of cheesy poofs.
