wrong in so many ways

"Once the fried dough embodiment of hot and fresh, Krispy Kreme has transformed its original glazed doughnut into a new frozen beverage for summer.

The chain introduced a new line of frozen drinks Wednesday, including frozen original kreme -- a drinkable version of the company's signature doughnut -- raspberry, latte and double chocolate." [Full article here]

Now I'm all for trashy food (I am North American, after all), but even I can't stomach the thought of a doughnut in liquid form. Maybe it tastes better than it sounds, but I suspect that it's one of those things you'll only ingest if you're very, very drunk or if your regular diet consists of nothing but Pop Tarts and Cherry Coke.

There are many foods that I don't readily admit to eating, mostly because they make English people wince in culinary agony. The last time I made a peanut butter and banana sandwich in the office kitchen, three people fled in terror. My guilty food pleasures include: grilled cheese sandwiches dipped in ketchup, Kraft Dinner (although this treat has come to an end since moving here, sadly), Denny's breakfasts (on American holidays only), fake plastic cheese slices on a bagel or in a toastie, Pizza Hut, Ben and Jerry's Reese's Peanut Butter Cup ice cream (American holidays only, dammit), and almost any kind of chocolate chip cookies.

Alright, now you guys fess up. What are your favourite foods that are wrong but feel oh so right?
