Ice cream. I have been known to eat a half gallon in an evening. A northern NY convenience store called Stewart's make my favorite called Adirondack Bear Claw (I think they changed it to Paw instead of Claw).

A good beer. I lean towards specialty beers of the 650 mL (22 oz) variety. Usually in the ale to stout range. I limit myself to one or two a week since they are also around eight percent ethanol by volume.

A finger or two of scotch or bourbon. Though my in-laws got me a delicious Dutch gin on their bike trip which ended there.

My non junk food but still super sugary snack vice are dates

Anything salty, but especially french fires (good ones only). Besides fries, anything goes; chips, pretzels, peanuts. You name it, put salt on it, I'll eat it.

Potato chips with dip. I can eat a whole container with one bag! Oh and good pale ale, my ultimate weakness.

It depends if I'm craving sugar or if I'm craving salt. If it's a sugar craving then I lean towards ice cream, especially Rocky Road. Salt cravings are rarer and can be easily settled with french fries.

My big addiction that I've mostly conquered is Coca Cola. OMG so delicious! In my heyday, I'd drink 7 or 8 cans a day of Coke. But now I limit coke to a can a handful of times a year.

Ice cream in all its glorious variations. When I grew up, the philosophy was: "It's not a meal without dessert; it's not dessert if there's no ice cream."
Road trips must include red licorice and it has to be the good stuff, not some of the tasteless stuff that seems to dominate the market.
Peanut M&M's (preferably with ice cream)
Homemade choco chip cookies or M&M cookies (with ice cream).
French fries (preferably with choco ice cream on the side).

The Nestles Crunch w/ Girl Scout Thin Mint flavor is addictive stuff.

This. Salty and crunchy. I've been able to stay away from French fries but I make up for that in other ways.

Potatoes + grease + salt = <3

Also, coke is sugar, water, caffeine, and salt. Bad for couch sitting, great accompaniment for a ride.

Poutine and burgers. Alas in the small isolated Northern Ontario community that I am in there is no good poutine for a very long distance. But I guess that is a good thing.

Poutine!!! Alas in the large non-isolated kindom of poutine that is the greater Montreal urban community there are tons of poutine everywhere. I guess that's a bad thing.

How can a major food group be considered junk?

Actually, my diet is carefully planned and 90% of it is of solid, healthy food.
It's the other 40% that gives me trouble.
