Guilty pleasures – these can be food, activities or anything that gives you so much pleasure that you don’t mind the guilt you feel right after. Guilty pleasures are usually kept secret from others probably because you want to maintain a certain image, you simply don’t want anyone judging you for giving in to temptations or it’s just plain embarrassing to admit.
Though we enjoy discovering new restaurants or cooking up unique dishes, we have a list of food and drinks that we can’t simply get enough of. We always come back to them because nothing else can give us the same level of satisfaction. They’re our comfort food, so no matter what others may say about how unhealthy they can be, we felt that it’s about time we share with you our own guilty pleasures to hopefully entice you into admitting what you always crave for. 😉

MHEL: I was one of the many people who were saddened upon learning that A&W stores stopped their operations here in the Philippines years ago. Imagine my joy when I found out that leading grocery stores still sell A&W rootbeer in cans. I blogged about that here. And every so often, I bring home at least 2 cans of A&W rootbeer to enjoy at home (I actually have a can currently chilling in our refrigerator). The intense rootbeer flavors and its frothiness can never be surpassed by any other rootbeer brands, and I know a lot of you would agree with me. 🙂
KEN: What’s not to love about Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups? Reese’s combines the two best things in the world – chocolate and peanut butter! I have tried countless times to make my own version at home, but nothing really beats the original. These peanut butter cups, covered in their bright orange wrappers, are, hands down, the best candy in the world!
MHEL: I LOVE cheesecakes, but since I had a taste of Ken’s version of Blueberry Cheesecake (New York style), I can’t get enough of it. I think we’ve had it numerous times over the past year. He doesn’t complain though ’cause I’m always the one buying the ingredients. 😀 Plus, he’s addicted to cheesecakes too. It’s the best Blueberry Cheesecake I’ve ever tasted, and I share this opinion with a lot of fellow foodies. 🙂
KEN: Tokyo Tokyo’s Fried Chicken Karaage is my ultimate comfort food! I crave for it when I’m depressed or frustrated, and it never fails to curve my lips into a smile even after a recent heartbreak.
Good thing there’s no Tokyo Tokyo that delivers to our home. Otherwise, Ken might be having their Chicken Karaage for breakfast, lunch and dinner! 😀 – Mhel
MHEL: Aside from being a chocolate lover, I am addicted to cheese too. Though I would LOVE to have the chance to taste hundreds of cheeses the world has to offer, I am quite satisfied with just these – Hansel Premium Cheese sandwich. Ever since I’ve had a taste of these crumbly, salty cheese sandwiches, I can’t get enough! I sometimes can’t remember finishing one pack all by myself! 😀 *blush*
KEN: If I had to eat only one food for the rest of my life, it would definitely be TOCINO. I’ve loved it since I was a kid, and even now I still stir up from my deepest slumbers whenever I smell tocino being cooked in the kitchen. It’s everything I want in food. I love meat, and having a sweet tooth makes me vulnerable to getting addicted to food like this. My favorite tocino brands are Pampanga’s Best, Mekeni, and CDO Young Pork Tocino. Yummm!
MHEL & KEN:
We only have a short list of our guilty pleasures when it comes to food. The list includes S&R’s pizza, New York style!
Ken’s Buffalo Wings. You can make these addicting, hot and flavorful buffalo wings at home! Check out his recipe here. A lot of people say they’re the best buffalo wings they’ve ever had (and no, we’re not biased)! 🙂
Those are just some of our top guilty pleasures. Join our giveaway below for a chance to win some of them! 🙂
