Folks, this here may be a continuing theme here on my website, admitting to loving foods that should rightfully have my Food Blogger Card ripped away from me. (If they actually gave us one, I’m still waiting for that card to arrive.)

I was just in the middle of editing photos with a cheater recipe of mine – another guilt all in itself that I will write about someday- and looking at the photo I realized that it was time to write this post.

I never hide the fact that I occasionally eat fast food or pretend for appearances that I only shop/eat local, newp,  I’m honest to the core here on The Kitchen Magpie. So let’s stay with that whole “Keeping It Real” theme I always have going here on my website and go for some more deep down, dirty confessions!

Introducing: Food I Should Not Love As Someone Who Makes Her Living Food Blogging.

Y’all ready for this? Here goes.  (Lordy, I’m embarrassed already. You’re lucky I love you all.)

a can of Great Value brand sliced mushrooms

Canned mushrooms. 

I love canned mushrooms. Seriously. I’ve been addicted to them since a child. I eat them out of the can. I KNOW how horrible they are. I know. I eat them anyway.

Filet o' Fish with cheese and mayonnaise

The Filet o’ Fish.

I am so sorry guys, you may as well just stop reading this site now. Cancel your subscription to my newsletter. I love the Filet o’ Fish. I even crave it on occasion. Why? Why must I love it? I don’t know, but what makes it even worse is that I think the DOUBLE Filet’ o Fish is the best thing ever made.

I can’t believe I just told the whole internet that.

shift brand canned cooked ham

 Canned Ham

Now let me assure you, not Klik, not Spam, just the good ol’ canned ham. My Rose and I love to sit down and eat it and just gross out Mike and Mr K. Oh and put it on white buttered bread for a sandwich? Heaven.

sapporo ichiban chicken front noodles


I can’t help it, I love Ichiban. I love it even more with chunks of cheese melting in it. I haven’t eaten it like that for years because I know better but every now and then I have to get a package and enjoy some plain Ichiban for lunch. When the kids can’t see me. Oh and it simply has to be chicken flavor.

a cup of coolwhip whipped topping

Cool Whip

For God’s sake, it’s pure oil and other ingredients I don’t want to even think about.

a box of Jell-o brand instant pistachio pudding and pie filling

Pistachio Jello

If it’s wrong to love this green concoction that tastes nothing like pistachios, I don’t want to be right. This is a love from my childhood. Again, something I haven’t eaten in years but danged if I don’t want to go out RIGHT NOW and buy a box of this.

So if you’re still reading this and haven’t left my site in disgust, it’s YOUR TURN.

Confession time. What foods do you love that you know you just shouldn’t?

I know you have a list as long as mine!
