About Guilty Pleasures

Guilty Pleasures

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. πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ™‚

KEN: What’s not to love aboutΒ 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. πŸ˜€ 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. πŸ™‚

Ken's Homemade Blueberry Cheesecake

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! πŸ˜€ – 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! πŸ˜€ *blush*

Hansel Premium Cheese Sandwich

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!

  • My guilty pleasures are dark chocolate, green tea, and street foods!
    When it comes to dark chocolate, I prefer variants which have the highest cocoa percentage. I continuously try to find dark chocolate that is 99% Cocoa, but I can’t find one! :(( I like the bitterness and the aroma dark chocolate provides.
    I also like green tea! I love it whether it is hot or cold, frappe or ice cream, etc. In short, I love anything that has a strong green tea taste. People may find it very weird, but for me, the stronger green tea flavor, the better. My taste buds find the herbal and tangy flavor of green tea wonderful.
    Lastly, I am guilty of loving street foods so much! Fish balls, kikiam, kwek-kwek, squid ball, etc. Aside from being very cheap and affordable, street foods do not have the “sawa factor.” Every time I eat street foods, I feel like I can load up with tons of it.

  • My number one guilty pleasure food is “SHAWARMA”, specially with cheese and hot sauce. Everytime I passed by in a Shawarma Stand or Shop , I always get drooled
    and the smell makes me so hungry! And with every bit, I close my eyes and saying MMM MMM MMM!! I’ve found mine! If I have much money Ill buy a dozen and it eat all the way!

  • Phyllis Abrasaldo

    My guilty pleasure is indulging myself in an “All you can Eat Buffet” once in two months especially if I’m really stressed out and I want to just eat any food I normally avoid everyday due to “DIET”. I go to either Kamayan, Heaven & Eggs, Cabalen, or Sakae Sushi @ MOA and enjoyed all the food I can eat! I eat a small portion of each fare/viand and get samplers of the desserts and come back for more. Later after I’m well fed, I’ll end up feeling guilty looking at my thin wallet and facing myself at the mirror and thinking of all the months it took me to burn a few pounds of calories and thinking of ways how to lose these calories I gained in one sitting! πŸ™‚

  • Josephine Soliman Gregorio

    my guilty pleasure are
    “Choc-nut or Hany” – walang sawa! kasama sa budget sa pag-grocery, everytime umaalis ng bahay para mamasyal mayroong baon sa bag.. after mag-eat ito ang pang himagas ko, super affordable pa ang presyo kaya sky is the limit pagdating sa Choc-nut! hehehe!.. meron pang isa..

    “latik”(coco jam)- hehehe.. super ligaya ko, ang sarap kasi! ipalaman sa pandesal, sarap din papakin, lalo na kapag latik na luto ng lola ko, yun ang super favorite ko.. πŸ™‚

  • My guilty pleasure is only and always will be KFC’s gravy. like I can drink a lot of it and pretend that it’s mushroom soup. lol Another one would be the undying Cheeseburger of Mcdonalds, and before I forget I always call Zark’s tombstone burger to be the gultiest pleasure of all. πŸ™‚

I’m craving right now! Hahahaha. I hope I can win! #TheFoodExplorerCloyd! πŸ˜€

  • triplejoys

    Aside from Kare-Kare and Pinakbet which are two of my favorite dishes and guilty pleasures, I also cannot resist anything that will be dipped in a very spicy vinegar! Street foods, name it, and I am more than game to eat them as long as there’s vinegar to complement it! yummy! πŸ™‚

  • I eat ice cream even when the weather is cold. I just can’t help it. Even it’s raining I’ll go out and find an ice cream to satisfy my cravings.

    I once receive a bag of Jelly beans from the US and tried a few and I just cant seem to stop putting them in my mouth. It has a lot of flavors and I can’t make up my mind about which is my favorite. But the dream ended when I realized I consumed almost half a kilo. To my surprise, I found out that certain candy stores sell them here. Jelly beans are simply awesome

  • Jingle

    I have a thing for Jollibee’s fried chicken. Crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, delicious, oh-so-tasty and uhmmmm. I gotta stop, it’s making me hungry.

  • My Guilty Pleasure is: I LOVE FOOD SO MUCH, but I don’t really want to get fat. πŸ™ All my friends tell me I’m getting fatter day by day because of eating too much and I tell them I don’t care but sometimes I actually do. I’m trying to slim down but I can’t cause I LOVE EATING MORE than I want a nice body. I’d rather be fat all my life eating all the food I love than keeping a slim figure while crying over all the good food I wasn’t able to eat. :))

  • Sunshine Manahan

    My guilty pleasure is M&S’ Digestive Biscuits. Like I can eat 3 packs in a row! It was my ex-boyfriend who introduced that Biscuit to me. Now that we just separated ways, I guess it will be literally a “guilty-pleasure” for me every time I would buy or eat digestive biscuits. Maybe not just guilty, maybe I’ll feel all kind of emotions I felt when we broke up if I do. Bitter-pleasure, regretful-pleasure, whatever. Yes. It’s been so hard for me that we have to separate ways. I always think of him in everything that I do especially in that pack of Digestive Biscuit, which is my favorite since 5 years ago. T_T πŸ™‚

  • Anita Camungay

    Me loves chicken skin! the most evil food in the universe! But who cares about health when its heaven to taste and eat it!

  • jagger_augustine

  • All of the food above is my guilty pleasure….
    but top of it is the blueberry cheese cake…yummy… heheh..kinda gluttoned..but honestly I ate it in moderation..its not bad to award yourself sometimes…Its just a matter of discipline…:D

  • My guilty pleasure when it comes to foods is dipping every single chips I eat in Mang tomas sauce. Yes, it sounds weird, but I have this thing about dipping chips in mang tomas, I don’t care if its the local brand of potato chips or the mose expensive imported ones, I just love dipping them all in Mang tomas. People here in the house finds it weird but, I gotta tell, You must try this one. haha

  • Chocolates, my all time guilty pleasure. Gaah! Why is it so hard to resist chocolates? Lalo na ngayon na im on a diet. Their dark color makes me wanna eat it. Their smell feels like heaven. All I want to do is melt them in my mouth ng sabay sabay. This blog drools me a lot. Ang sarap talaga kumain. Lalo ang pinoy alam na alam natin yan. Its more food in the Philippines! πŸ™‚

  • disqus_1IS1M5baPl

    my guilty pleasure is freshly made dulce de leche straight from the can! =)
    (canned condensed milk simmered in boiling water)

  • Agustin John Cabredo II

    Iced gems. If I were stuck in an island, and if I can bring one stuff with me, this would be it. If you are a kid of the ’80s then you probably know it. It is the perfect blend of saltiness of the cookie and mild sweetness of the icing. Perfect combination, I say. In my book, the creator of this snack deserves a Nobel peace prize for Chemistry. Kidding aside, do you all know that they even have choco iced gems now but I bet the classic still rules!

    By the way, I share your fondness for Reese’s peanut butter cups. *Drools

    • Iced gems – waahh! We were supposed to post about that here, but I had issues with my photos, so I had to scrap that. Gosh. Thanks for reminding me! πŸ˜€

      • AJ C

        You’re welcome. I knew you were missing something! The world is a better place because of Iced gems.

  • My guilty pleasures when it comes to food are chocolates, cakes, pastries, and nagaraya! Really, I am into gym and zumba classes, burning myself out to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but dont you ever tempt me with those sweets and I’ll drool over and forget everything my instructors reminded me of. Describing this guilty pleasure makes me crave uh-oh!

  • xhunter901

  • Rengie Bahia

    My guilty pleasure is Milk Tea! Whether it’s the tried and tested favorites or a new place in town, I’m surely to be found in line for my favorite drink!

  • Gizette

    French fries! OMG can’t live without it :/

  • I am a frustrated cook. -.- When I get home every weekend, I always try to “invent” a new dish. And because I am just a wannabe, they do not always turn out really good.But I don’t let myself feel bad because I (right away :D) grab a pack (or more) of Meiji chocolates, especially Macadamia! :))) I also crave for them when I am reviewing for exams. πŸ™‚ And even when there is really no reason to. XD Oooh.. The guilty pleasures that never fail to make me feel very happy. πŸ™‚

  • Aida Villanueva

    For me, my guilty pleasures are chocolates, hamburgers, pasta,and ice cream. I love chocolates. I love dark chocolate, milk chocolate, chocolate with nuts, and with wafers. My ultimate comfort food is hamburger with chocolate drink. Pasta with french fries dip in ice cream. Woah! I love it :()

  • NiΓ±o Mar Babiano

    My guilty pleasure when it comes to food is lechon baboy. Pero diba, sino ba naman ang aayaw dito? Habang niluluto palang ang lechon, iniikot ikot sa ibabaw ng nagbabagang uling ang sarap ng kurutin ang balat lalo na at pag medyo luto na, tsaka hndi kana makapaghintay na ihain ito. At habang inihahatid sa kusina nandun ka at sinusundan mo ang mahalimuyak na amoy nito, nanginginig at naglalaway na ang bibig mo. At kapag ginagayat na ito, ang sarap pakinggan sa bawat paghampas ng itak or kutsilyo na hinihiwa ang lechon. At kapag inhain na ito sayo, unang unang titikman mo ay ang napakalutong at mapula pulang balat nito. crrrrrkk crkkkk, whew ang sarap talaga. At ang sunod mong titirahin ay ang laman na may kasamang taba, isasawsaw mo lang ito sa mang tomas o di kaya sa suka na may sili or kumbinasyon ng suka, sili at toyo. wheeeww! grabe walang mapaglagyan ang ligaya at sarap na nararamdaman mo.habang nginunguya nguya mo ang lechon. Take note guys ang tinutukoy ko dito ay lechon from Cebu πŸ™‚ na pinakamasarap sa lahat ng lechon na natikman ko. Pero ito lang ang nakakaungkot sa lahat. Kasi pagkatapos mong kumain iisipin mo naman na ang dami palang cholesterol nung nakain mo goodluck nalang sa idadagdag nitong timbang sau lalao na kung ondiet ka at medyo sumasakit na rin batok mo after hehehe…. πŸ™‚

  • My guilty pleasures are softdrinks, chocolate and ice cream. Lunch is not complete without softdrinks. i tried to stop the softdrinks habit last year but it only lasted for a few months.

Each crunchy and salty bite is sinfully delicious!second is chocolate ice cream with almonds and brownies. tinititigan ko pa lang yun melting ice cream, tumataba na ako. third is KFC fried chicken with oceans of gravy, yung nagsiswimming na ang chicken sa gravy. just looking at it while im pouring the gravy from the thermos onto my plate makes my mouth drool.promise, nakakahiya man, pero my mouth waters everytime i see my guilty pleasures on my plate. i cant explain why, pero naglalaway talaga ako even if i know, im on my way to devour them! hahahaha

  • Vivian Aguilar

    My guilty pleasure are desserts! more particularly cakes, and not just any cakes but “the sweetererkind, the betterer!” hehe. A slice of any cake gives me this sense of high that i cannot explain. I can trade my cakes for rice meals. I love them cakes!

Its really easy to prepare no milk just the cream and egg and its really creamier add up the salty taste of bacon fried in butter.

    And because of that I always cooked that dish and it became my specialty. =)

  • Hunter Ferry

    Mine is kochujang! It’s a Korean red pepper paste and you can eat it with any kinds of food. It has a distinct hot and salty taste. It will make any bland ulam delicious and it will make yummy meat even yummier. I had my little nephew try it and he said it tasted like spicy ‘bagoong’. I eat it with lumpia, siomai, beef, pork, fish, lettuce etc. If you try it, you can’t blame me! It might be one of your guilty pleasures, too!

  • My guilty pleasure is mango ice cream. I know I have to trim down but I just can’t resist a scoop or two. It’s so tempting!

  • Marie Chris

  • Rainier Maquilan

  • My guilty pleasure…would have to be…PENOY. Yes, like Balot, only without the chick. XD Lately, I’ve been really craving for it. I know it’s quite unhealthy to be eating too much of it, but the taste is really something. I can’t go home without passing by Mr. Magbabalot and voila! “Pabili nga po! Penoy, yung may sabaw.” Hahaha. And I can’t stop because it’s oh-so-affordable! and I really feel like I’m Pinoy when I eat penoy! HAHA :))

  • Vanessa Rose

    My guilty pleasure when it comes to food are CHOCOLATES! I really love chocolates! Super! I can live with them only. If I am not feeling well, if I have not slept, only chocolate will revive me. :)) Chocolate is the divine drink which builds up resistance and fights fatigue. A cup of this precious drink permits man to walk for a whole day without food. Chocolate is a perfect food, as wholesome as it is delicious, a beneficent restorer of exhausted power. It has been shown as proof positive that carefully prepared chocolate is as healthful a food as it is pleasant; that it is nourishing and easily digested… that it is above all helpful to people who must do a great deal of mental work. HELL YEAH! ^_^

  • Nadine

    My guilty pleasure is siopao! Whenever I see one, it doesn’t matter whether I have just eaten or not, I’ll grab and gorge on it instantly. I love siopao to bits :))

I was sad that day because I thought no one remembered my day, but it turned out that they would actually surprise me with my all time favorite!~ <3

  • Lea

    My guilty pleasure — chocolate cake!!! Actually, I love everything that has chocolate in it (cookies, etc.) And of course, I can’t resist chocolate bars (hersheys, snickers, reese, etc.)

  • Going Buletlet

    I always find pleasure eating street foods! Name it, I love it! From quail eggs to isaw, betamax and BBQ, fried calamares, siomai that costs only around 20php, chciken feet, etc etc. They say these foods aren’t not that safe to eat, maybe because of how they were prepared and how exposed they are on streets. But, I can’t help myself once I lay my eyes on them. Hehehe! Well, apart from the fact that I’m allergic to some of the food that I mentioned, I still can’t manage to entirely abstain from these foods. :((

  • my guilty pleasures are cheesecakes, ribs and buffalo wings! and oh, my latest addiction is Big Daddy’s Chicken chops! yummy! πŸ™‚ just can’t get enough of fried food! πŸ™‚

  • Susana Irenea Loyola Borja

  • Bachuchay

    My guilty pleasures?.. Hmm..I can be convicted with my answer πŸ™‚ I love eating chicken ass.. how I wish chickens have at least 10 asses so that when we order fried chicken, I don’t have to compete with the others..I know it’s high in cholesterol but most of the time I order grilled/fried chicken ass. πŸ™‚ I also love chocolate cake paired with Rocky Road Ice cream.. (ok, now I’m really guilty already..LOL)

Usually I buy in Mcdonalds with a hot fudge sundae and an extra cup of gravy :P… when it’s time eating the fries I love to dip it on catsup/gravy/sundae alternately! πŸ˜›

    My love for japanese food would count too especially a bowl of miso ramen and a plate of takoyaki πŸ™‚ yummerz!!!!!

    Lastly, I know this is super duper over carbo-loaded and maybe a weird-craving… a bag of original Lays partnered with rice. πŸ˜› [like when you eat pork chicharon with rice] XD

  • Macky Pacleb

    Pizza is my guilty pleasure because it’s the best, superb and satisfying food that would make me happy and energized for the entire day. Sometimes, I became quite greedy also when it comes to eating pizza because I do love and crave for it. I’m a certified pizza lover boy. πŸ™‚

  • tinaelainer

    My guilty pleasure would be pizza. They have, in may ways, kept me sane throughout my medical school toxicities and my motherhood difficulties. Whenever I stroll the mall, I had to fight with myself not to buy even a slice. I’ve always known how much carbs these food gets into my body and I always give myself a little pity whenever I finish off 3-4 slices in one seating but what the heck! How could one even resist that Italian smell of tomatoes and cheeses? They are just so yummy.

  • My guilty pleasure is ice cream, something I already passed on to my son. Durian flavor is a real big challenge!!!

  • Charmaine Sy

    My guilty pleasure would be pastries. Pastries of all kind. I consider pastry shops as heaven on earth. I can’t pass by one without entering one to browse what they have to offer and (if my will power fails..) buy one.. or two.. or maybe a dozen of pastries. πŸ˜€

  • Yssa Maunay

    My top guilty pleasure is pasta especially the spinach lasagna from Sbarro, the first time I tried it it was all worth it! It’s a spinach wrapped in a pasta with meat sauce, a healthy yet delicious food you’ll never forget. My next guilty pleasure are chocolates especially dark chocolates and chocolates with peanut butter (like M&m’s and Reese’s) the combination of chocolate & peanut butter is just heaven! while the dark chocolates are just irresistible! My last guilty pleasure is the red velvet cupcake from Sophies Mom aside from it’s attractive color, I just love the cheesecake icing on top of it that makes the cupcake taste like a bit of cheesecake and awesomely delicious! 1 cupcake isn’t enough that will make you crave more. Trust me. πŸ™‚ My guilty pleasures are my comfy and happy place they are like people that I will always love and cherish. πŸ™‚

  • Mirzi Sarte

    My guilty pleasure is desserts (Chocolates and Cakes). The pleasure factor: the texture, and the sweetness. When I’m stress, I look for desserts because it makes me happy. Because fat and sugar cause the brain to release endorphins, which send pleasure signals throughout the body.

    So If you’re stressed, depressed or angry, Just look for dessert πŸ˜€

  • kaecee

    just crash in the couch and eat them. Yeah, I’m not afraid to get my
    hands smelly!

    Koko Krunch and cold milk. I’m 19 and I’m still addicted to these chocolate

  • Mike De Guzman

    Since I started eating sensibly (counting calories) I had to give up many of the foods (fast food, mostly) I loved. I love snacking so now much of my guilty pleasures are the high-calorie, high-sugar, and high-transfat kind–the delicious kind, you know… so heading my list of (now) guilty pleasures is (1) Clover Chips: I’ve loved its tasted since forever. I like the way it stains my fingers when I eat. Plus, there’s Clover Bits… difficult to find these days but I love it!; (2) Lindt Excellence Dark Chocolate: I don’t have a sweet tooth but I can’t get enough of this treat; (3) Shakey’s Chic n Chips: For me this is the best chicken–hands down! Then there’s (4) Lord Stow’s Egg Tarts, or our neighborhood bakery’s egg pie–in a pinch. And (5) Sbarro’s Calzone: I always order this whenever I’m in Sbarro’s, pairing it with some zitti pasta in white sauce–yummy!

    • Oohhh, gotta try that Lindt Excellence Dark Chocolate… πŸ™‚

  • lhornsky

    my guilty pleasure is eating quial egg hehe kasi naman ang taas sa calories per egg pero who cares lol basta masarap ang sawsawan gogogo lang lalo pag maanghang ang suka hehe.. drinking coffee almost 3times a day everyday un and with matching pandesal and peanut butter wla lang katabi ko lang lagi peanut butter at pandesal whether im watching or joining contest it gives me boost lol…. mind over matter lang πŸ™‚ chozz. di kailangang mahal basta masarap ok na:)

  • jillroque

    My guilty pressure is my mom’s homemade pork & beans, I can eat it like almost everyday.

  • I love lechon kawali so I felt like being sentenced to life imprisonment
    when my doctor advised me to STOP eating fried/roasted pork and the like when
    my BP reached 190 over 140. So I feel guilty when I eat bagnet as ulam for
    dinner na laging pasalubong sakin ng former office mate ko who now lives in
    Ilocos. But I feel guiltier when I see my wife and kids open a can of corned
    beef or sardines dahil halos maubusan ko sila ng ulam na bagnet. GUILTY AS
    CHARGED!

    • Awww I miss bagnet and lechon kawali!! You reminded me that we still have vouchers to try 8065 Bagnet. :))

  • disqus_Tjn3rB2lOd

    My guilty pleasure is pizza, and makisushi!!! I don’t even care how much weight will i get by having it hahaha!!! But it makes me happy especially when i have it almost everyday!

  • When it comes to guilty pleasures, I have a lot. I love Yellow Cab’s Early Breads and Chicken Alfredo Pasta, Reese’s PB cups (my fave, actually), and a bag of Lay’s Sour Cream & Cheddar chips. Of course, there are many more, but I’m afraid the list would go on and on. Needless to say, even if these are laden with calories, I don’t mind at all. So what’s a few more pounds to add to my already “lots to love” body? Especially if the cause is such yummy food! πŸ˜€ Btw, thanks for this giveaway…didn’t have the chance to join 1-6, though.

  • My guilty pleasure is chocolate!

  • Svetlani

    My guilty pleasure is my specialty, Coffee Jelly. the fusion of bitter taste of coffee and the sweet creamy milk sauce I made definitely celebrating on my taste buds.

I can even make you one if you want to try it. πŸ™‚

    My guilty pleasure is the Chicharon! It has been one of my favorite food – I can eat as a snack or use it as meat substitute to certain dishes (pinakbet and ginisang munggo)… heck, I can even make it my ulam on some days! It’s not healthy-healthy, I know… but there’s just something about that sinful crunchy pork rinds that makes me want to eat it.

  • wow my favorite Reeses and blueberry cheesecake!!! nomnom!
