A Tribute to My Favourite Junk Foods
August 16, 2015
As I eat my last can of Pringles Original, I feel a bit nostalgic and sentimental. I knew that it would be my last bite of deliciousness.
Oh boy, why are the good things so bad for our health? I was already reprimanded by multiple doctors that I have to stop eating junk food. It’s very hard for me to accept the truth that I have to give up junk food but I had to. I want to live longer and I do not want to go back to the hospital again. I certainly do not want to experience the scare that I had a few months ago with the doctor saying that I might have cancer. Good thing the biopsy result was good which means I do not have cancer. I felt like I had a second life. Now, I’m really more adventurous with what I do. We only live once!
Since I cannot eat any more junk food, I figured that I have to write an entry solely for them. Yes, the junk foods which I had enjoyed for all my life, I need to let them go. But I need to pay tribute before finally letting go. Oh, the heartbreak :'(
Pringles Original Potato Chips
Once you pop, you can’t stop.
The tagline above says it all for me. I love that Pringles is salty, crispy and super well-seasoned. I can eat one whole can without stopping. It’s that addicting. Oh, Pringles, how I miss you already :'(
Piknik Original Shoestring Potatoes
Pik-Nik selects only the best, fresh potatoes. Then we slice them a little thicker and a little longer than ordinary potato sticks. We quickly fry our shoestring potatoes in 100% pure vegetable oil and pack them in our stay-fresh reclosable canisters. This ensures a crisp, crunchy texture and a superb fresh-fried potato taste.
I love to munch at food especially in between meals. I’m not sure what the reason is but I guess it can be to reduce stress. Pik-Nik is one of my all time favourite snack. I love the shoestring texture of Piknik as I can somewhat control the amount that I’m eating and prolong my enjoyment of the snack.
CHEETOS® snacks are the much-loved cheesy treats that are fun for everyone! You just can’t eat a CHEETOS® snack without licking the signature “cheetle” off your fingertips. And wherever the CHEETOS® brand and CHESTER CHEETAH® go, cheesy smiles are sure to follow.
I remember my good friend Rhona would buy me Cheetos to cheer me up during my sad days. That was how effective Cheetos is to me. Cheetos was my go-to-snack during those lowly days. Too bad I have to find a healthier option from this time on. What I love about Cheetos is how cheesy it is. If I can borrow KFC’s tagline, Cheetos is finger-lickin’ good!
Chippy BBQ Corn Chips
An incredibly crunchy snack with a distinct barbecue taste that makes it the barkada’s go-to comfort snack.
Chippy is a very good snack in the Philippines. I love its BBQ taste yet with a thick crusty texture. Since it’s local, the price is affordable. That’s why if I wanted to cut down on expenses, Chippy would be the snack that I would buy. But now, whether on a budget or not, I have to let Chippy go. Bye Chippy!
V-Cut Potato Chips
Ridge sliced potato chips that are made from 100% real potatoes and cooked to a golden crisp.
If I couldn’t find piknik, V-Cut is the snack that I would buy. Just like Chippy, it’s made locally in the Philippines. While I love V-Cut, I felt that the serving is quite small. I can actually finish one pack in 5 minutes. But maybe it’s because it’s delicious. Nevertheless, I would need to stop buying and eating V-Cut.
Oh my broken heart… Goodbye yummy snacks!
