Welcome to Junk Food Blog!

Eating a hot dogTired of eating soy-cheese? Wondering why you starve yourself all morning only to replenish yourself with carrot sticks? Then you need to bookmark Junk Food Blog!

Junk Food Blog reports on the newest junk food hitting the market, giving you plenty of options to satisfy your lust for fat, sugar, salt, and alcohol (you know, the stuff you really want).

We celebrate the stuff we Americans were meant to eat, the stuff we became famous for. If you're like any other red-blooded, blog-reading American, your desk is littered with soda cans and super-sized fast-food drinking cups, along with bottles of antacid and pain-killers.

Look, eating a strict diet of "whole natural foods" might let you live an extra 20 years, but that only means having to eat that crap for another 20 years. Don't punish yourself!

You know that guy Dr. Robert Atkins, the one who invented the Atkins Diet? He died at 72 years of age, no better than the average American! So WTF? You may as well enjoy life.

Bob's Big BoyDrop the turkey-breast sandwiches and tofu-berry shakes. Go get the Pringles, the Little Smokies, the Krispy-Kremes, the Ben & Jerry's! It's ok. Just tell yourself, it's ok. Bookmark Junk Food Blog, and do the American thing.

hey, why is almost everything here chocolate-related?

i need a place where i can go to pay homage to delicious savory foodstuffs like easymac, corn dogs, hamburger helper, pork rinds, and cheetos.

i'll end with a question i hope you can answer: when i travel abroad to i.e. australia, the most common and delicious potato chip flavor is 'chicken.' where can i get chicken-flavored chips in the states?

Who cares about Black & Tan get a life, the Beer has been out for along time.....

Just a correction.
Atkins did not die of age related illness.
He died from complications related to a fall.
But who know perhaps a couple of twinkies in his pockets might have softened the impact.

people with a problem with black and tan need to get a life. get out of the past. drink the beer and be concerned with other, more important issues

I cannot BELIVE the stir over Ben & Jerrys naming a product Black & Tan. Good grief has our society become so politically correct and sensitive that even ice cream takes a hit. Give it a rest. I am 3/4 Irish and a 1/4 Welsh and I am PROUD of my Irish/Celtic Heritage. Good for B & J for bringing one of the best stout drinks to Ice Cream. The rest of the bleeding hearts really need to grow a spine and be a little more concerned with the state of the world and not the name of the Ice Cream.

From Yahoo news:

"I can't believe that Ben & Jerry's would be so insensitive to call an ice cream such a name and to launch it as a celebration of Irishness ... it's an insult!" wrote one blogger on www.junkfoodblog.com.

How ridiculous are you? Obviously, you're desperately in need of a more fulfilling life.

PL whining that attempts to associate terrorism with the name of an ice cream celebrating a known pub drink is sad because it blatantly undermines Ben & Jerry's well-meaning salute.

As for you who posted,

"I hope they don't try to launch it here in Ireland or I imagine they'll lose a lot of their fans."

enjoy your potato-based ice cream or whatever else tickles you fancy.

I completely support Ben & Jerry's name choice and I pity both of you.

I am 1/4 Irish and am extremely offended that Ben and Jerry's would name an Ice Cream after such a terrible time in Irish history. Didn't they at least google "Black and Tan" before coming out with this product? Didn't they ever take a history class? Do peace loving, tree hugging Americans not know Irish history?

Ben and Jerry, take a good look at Lucky Charms and give us Irish the repect we deserve like they do.

Quit your crying about the name..I am sure you could have complained about any name that Ben & Jerry's would have come up with. There are too many bleeding hearts out there.. I think we should just beat them all with a club..oops sorry about that Mr. Seals....

Um, i did google "black and Tan" and what i came up with was a friendly description of the practice of mixing Guinness and Harp's in a single glass and drinking it. But, hey, who am I to say that Ben and Jerry aren't a couple of irish-haters hell bent on the destruction of ireland?

first of all, everyone complaining about the fucking name of this ice cream, get a damn life. You all wonder why americans hate everyone and its because of this, something that happend so fucking long ago you people still hold a grudge. You need to build a bridge and get the fuck over it. its an ice cream, not the name of a fucking state or island. its rediculous to not eat their fucking ice cream.

To whoever wrote about Ben & Jerry's about the Black & Tan ice cream name, don't you think you're being just a little ridiculous? I read an article about the controversy on CNN's site and I was dumbfounded. It's been a known alcoholic drink for who knows. Anyone who isn't moronic would realize this. Quit trying to find something to bitch about.
Have you written to General Mills yet? I'm sure they deserve an ear full of your irish-bashing balderdash.
Do us all a favor-go order a Black&Tan, pick up some Ben&Jerry's and wash it down with a nice bowl of Lucky Charms.

i'm 100% British and i don't wanna hear a DAMN word outa anyones mouth complaining about the "Black & Tan" .. The IRA did way worse things then the "Black & Tan" could ever have ever done in 100 years..
noones hands are clean.. get over it.. Nazi, Black & Tan, KKK... stop being afraid of words.. just because you live in fear of these words doesn't mean everyone else wants to..

Let's give it a rest. Do we really need to attack Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream because of the name of the FLAVOR! I'm as IRISH as you can get and I'm NOT AT ALL offended by the name of the new ice cream. It's really a shame that some of you out there have that much time on your hands & are that unhappy in your lives to sit there and put down something as simple as the name of an ice cream! Get a grip on your life and take a look at things in the REAL world that matter, that should have your output on it, NOT ICE CREAM for goodness sakes! Start looking at the real world and do your complaining maybe, you can change something there but, LEAVE the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream alone! Your so SAD to attack Ice Cream! Get A LIFE!!!!! GET OVER IT!!!!!

LMAO!

So an animated caricature represents the Irish heritage? If so, I guess Austin Powers embodies all things British?

Heck I'm Irish and Native American Indian --If I lived in the past, I should be offended about everything. Because some internet loser knows a piece of history doesn't mean the whole world should know your piece of trivia. It's a label, a marketing thing that you have bought into with a full belief that marketing people actually know what they are doing. How offended would you have been if it had been called the "Tomahawk" or "Indians Ice Cream?" Exactly.

I can't believe you Irish would let a thing like the name of an Ice Cream put your panties in a BUNCH!!!! are you people really whiny pansies!! I am Italian and I don't let things offend me and trust me there is alot more said about Italians than the Irish.
Leave Ben & Jerry's alone they make killer Ice Cream, find something else to bitch about....

Thats All
Tell me what you think....

i searched black and tan and came up with 15,800,000 references. black and tan is a beer? wish i knew that earlier... it is also a dog breed, a recording group (or a company, i just glanced at the entry). when i was young (stop laughing!) at any ice cream parlor that had more than two tables, black and tan was a sundae, vanilla ice cream and chocolate with any combination whipped cream, nuts, syrup, berries, etc that could be had. good date dessert (desert?)

shame on u all promoting junk food like this. its desgusting the amounts of oil,sugar,grease, and so on, that u find in junk. instead of blabbing about this, go munch on something healthy and then go for a jog.these companies are getting rich on the account of your arteries being clogged.

Anonymous said...

yeah its me again, one more thing, steve (the welcome note) you're actually proud of the image america is giving in terms of junk food? thats desgusting, being known for macdonalds and having the highest amount of obesity in the world is actually something you should be trying to change and not promote.
peace.

I totally agree with you on this. I believe people these days just want to sue,sue,sue, all sue happy people out there! Or defensive about crap that sn't even ment to be an insult in the first place. God forbid anyone say anything anymore because someone is bound to find it insulting! For example if you say the word gay someone who IS gay will take offense, yet they have there very own "Gay Pride" day, if they are so "proud" to be gay then don't be so damn defensive about the word! Hmmm, off topic here and I am in no way predjudice so don't even go there, but I always did wonder...do we "straights" have any special "Straight Pride" days of any sort that I am unaware of?
Any way, people just need to chill out with how things are named or said not everything is about YOU or directed towards YOU!

I can't believe there are jerks complaining about Black & Tan ice cream. What's wrong with you people???
It's just words!!! If you're so sensitive that plain words can hurt you, go back home, lock the door, cut the cable and stay there until you get enough skin to face the real word. In other words, mature, grow up.
Where does this insanity end? Words are used to name ugly things as much as they're used to name good things. Going this way, eventually, we'll run out of words.
No more Benjamin because of Ben Laden? No more red color in french bacause of the Kmer Rouge? No more low woody perennial plants because of George Bush?
Stop embracing fake "noble" causes to leverage your own pity self. Go get a life!

I just wonder if all the people upset over the name of this ice cream (these pseudo-Irish, the 6-generations-removed Irish) realise that they're favorite "irish" pub serves the drink of the same name!

If you don't like it, don't buy it. Is that such a difficult concept?

AaronTX said...

There are a world of references that COULD be insulting to my ethnicity, ie. the sweaty Mexican (another alcoholic drink), or a Mexican neck tie (often used in movies). Smirk and move on -choose to rise above it.

XLR8 vs XELR8

I really hope people don't confuse the two companies. XELR8 has over 350 professional and olympic endorsers vs one Nascar driver. I will not say anything bad about XLR8 but if the name closely resembles a company that's already been around providing top quality products we really want to be clear.

any idea why people can eat potato chips and not get tired of them? I've worn out pb&j and most of the meat groups, but I still love potato chips?

Its true that the Robert Atkins diet sucked, mainly bc it taught ppl to eat bacon and grapefruit for breakfast and steak for lunch and dinner,
anyway, he slipped on the ice while he was walking and died, albeit he could of been having a heart attack, but i am not sure that his death was entirely due to old age. just thought i'd tell ya since you speak of him in your About Us page,, be well,

THE SOUTH BEACH DIET

Are you tired of trying different diet plans, with no positive results? Turn to South Beach Diet. This is not a traditional low-carb plan. What makes it different is that here you'll be encouraged to choose the right carbs like whole grains, certain fruits and vegetables and right fats like olive and canola oil and lean sources of protein. When you eat bad carbohydrates and fats you tend to feel hungrier and thus you end up eating more causing weight gain.

Good carbohydrates: They have a low glycemic index so they can be digested and absorbed slowly. They are high in fiber or high in good fats. You should also eat fiber or fat to slow digestion of the carbohydrates. Good fats: They are polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, especially those with omega-3 fatty acids. Saturated and trans fats are bad fats.

How does it work?

South Beach Diet was created a well known cardiologist, Dr. Arthur Agatston. He developed this diet for his cardiac patients after a lot of scientific dieting research. The best thing about this diet is that you will get your three, normal size meals everyday and you can even enjoy your snacks and deserts. In just a short amount of time you will see incredible results. So you can not only enjoy your favorite foods but you can also put your fear of getting fat to rest.

According to Dr.Agatston, when you consume bad carbohydrates especially those found in foods with a high Glycemic index, they create an insulin resistance syndrome which is an impairment of the hormone insulin's ability to properly process fat or sugar and not only this, bad carbohydrates also increase the chances of getting cardiovascular disease.Therfore his diet includes the consumption of good fats and good carbohydrates.

The three phases South Beach Diet:

This diet works in phases, the first two for a specific timeframe and the third phase for life.

Phase I -You will eat normal-size portions of lean meat, fish, eggs, reduced-fat cheese, nonfat yogurt, nuts, and plenty of vegetables including snacks and desserts. This will last for two weeks. You would have to high or moderately high-glycemic carbs so that you eliminate insulin resistance .This way the body will lose its insulin resistance, and thus use excess body fat, causing the dieter to lose between 8 and 13 pounds.

Phase II- Whole grain foods and fruits will be reintroduced in your diet, although in smaller amounts than were likely eaten before beginning the diet, and with a continued emphasis on foods with a low glycemic index. You should continue to lose weight until you reach the desired weight. Phase III- This begins when you reach the desired weight. Here you will continue to make good eating choices which would include three servings of whole grains and three servings of fruit a day.

Effective way to slim fast:

This diet puts emphasis on changing your way of eating and variety of foods. It discourages eating of very refined processed foods, high-fat meats, and saturated fats in general. Agatston says that you should eat until you are satisfied and you do not have to count calories. You just have to eat the right food that is good carbs and fats. By decreasing the intake of bad carbs, it will help you metabolize what you eat more effectively and improves insulin resistance as well leading to weight loss

It's not really about how long you get to live, is about *how* you get to live. With healthy food you live well, happier, healthy and with energy. You look better and can have better sex, longer and well into your later years, if that matters.

But eating junk, well, you can spend the last 30 years of your life diseased, depressed, impotent, feeling like crap, fat, with bad skin, with some sort of handycap and probably having to make dietary changes anyways because your life depends on it.

I learned this first-hand from my late grandparents, and now my parents. So naturally, I'm avoiding that path.

Choose to live the life you want but know the facts :)

P.S.- the Atkins diet is not about health, it's actually very unhealthy, it's strictly about weight loss.

This is a great blog/site. I LOVE junk food! My first lunch after Ramadhan ended a few days ago was a pack of "hot fries" and "dunkin' stix." I followed it up with a whopper for dinner. The Big Boy photo reminds me of the one in Burbank, fond memories.

Hi, I just found your blog. I think it's great to celebrate food and eat yummy foods. But I also know it can be done with eating junk food in moderation. Junk food makes me feel sick, most of it I don't even like, and it saps the energy out of me. I'd rather live a long, healthful life, than the short, pill-popping life that my dad the junk food junkie lived. That said, I think that any "diet" that doesn't involve tasty, well-balanced whole food meals, with indulgences here and there (especially chocolate) isn't worth it.
