    I'll have you know that there's a massive difference between bog standard Belgian Waffles and the Liège variety.

    I was going to make a list but how could I ever top Liège waffles? How could anyone?

    Mmmmm. When I lived in NY for two years, this and this were my addiction and this was my Mecca.

    It's a pity we don't do bagels like New Yorkers do them. I would honestly eat nothing else.

    A cheese and coleslaw sandwich is essential.

    I like most things tbh. I like the finer things in loife. :disco:

    I have quite the sweet tooth, so I would have to say that. It gets even worse when I exercise, because almost immediately I crave sugar. It really is an illness. :(

    I don't know if it's an addiction, coz I try to keep it under control, but I love Coke/Pepsi.

    Food-wise, I can't get enough burgers/fries but that's just the food I like, rather than an addiction.

    I will get bouts of cola cravings if I don’t measure my intake. I remember a few months where my body would be screaming for a can of fat coke every afternoon. curbed it though. not like my aunt who drinks 2-3 litres per day...

    I forgot about hummus - definitely in my top 10.

    My home made hummus remixes are life x infinity.

    Hummus is fucking life. And I say that with so much middle eastern pride.

    Good crisps are life.

    These really were 11/10 crisps. RIP angles.

    Inevitably mine is and always has been crisps: Nana couldn’t bring herself to love and deliberately left the price tags on presents but she always had crisps. Mind you, I had some earlier and rather peculiarly found them too greasy which is a first, not that I didn’t finish them. Also, coffee and chips, ideally not together

    I never get all the silly fuss and excitable squealing about CAKE. I never say no to a Yum Yum or a portion (:side-eye:) of Millionaire’s Shortbread but I’m not sure they’re cakes as such

    You're clearly mixing up two things of a similar colour.

    I'm only now sort of "getting" crisps but they;re the ones that aren't really crisps, like those mini poppadoms so Hummus Chips and stuff like that. Or those chilli things that are like a combination of Hula Hoops and torture.

    I rather like those Polish BEKON things which have next to no flavour but are curiously alluring

    Oh God and Sev Mamra has proven to be problematic on MANY an occasion. I fucking love that. Whoops there goes the bag, etc.

    Oh, those German choccy things are back in Tesco...heart-shaped, can't remember the name of them. I can demolish a bag of those a bit too easily.

    I would also say crisps. It's got to the stage that the only way that I can avoid eating a whole big bag in one sitting is to carefully weigh out a third of it and then put the rest in a different room.

    Okay, fine, a half.

    Oh I refuse to buy the big bags. Because even if I initially restrain I'm bound to snack for the rest of the week.

    Also they don't do big bags of the good crisps anyway. Just the posh ones.

    Macaroni cheese. I could eat it every day and not get tired of it.

    I’m a bit like that with chicken katsu curry

    @octophone’s mention of Lebkuchen has just brought Stollen to mind :disco:

    I loved those and once got a whole box after I tweeted Nando’s in a comedy way about the fact I’d bought a bag with no flavour in.

    They were delightful.
