Reduced-Fat Cape Cod Chips
Reduced-Fat Cape Cod Chips
I buy them in the small 100-calorie pack bags when I can find them, too. My wife is appalled. She thinks, instead, I should be eating more kale. Ed Levine

I am rarely tempted by any of these snacks individually, but put them all in one bag and game over. Alaina Browne

Chocolate Chips and Fantasy Party Mix
Chocolate Chips and Fantasy Party Mix
Is this in reality? Ice cold dark chocolate chips from the freezer. In my dreams? A party mix including Nacho Cheese Doritos, Harvest Cheddar Sunchips, Cheetos and Fritos Honey BBQ Twists." Leandra Palermo

Fast Food
Fast Food
On road trips, I pray that hunger will strike and we'll have to pull into a restaurant and eat at the sort of fast food place that I'd never allow myself in the city: McDonald's, Roy Roger's, Wendy's, just about any fast food will do (no Nathan's or D'Angelo's, please). Ben Fishner

Homemade Aïoli
Homemade Aïoli
"That would be homemade aïoli, which I make essentially the same way I make my two-minute mayonnaise, but with a couple cloves of garlic thrown into the blend, and a cup of extra-virgin olive oil whisked in by hand. It's ridiculously tasty to the point where during the summer there's pretty much always a squeeze bottle of the stuff in my fridge to be applied to blanched asparagus, potato salads, deviled eggs, TMT (that'd be Tomato-Mayo-Toasts, one of the great pillars of humanity). And yes, late at night, I'll occasionally dip in there for a little dollop off my fingertip. I'm not ashamed."J. Kenji Lopez Alt

Chinese Takeout...
Chinese Takeout...
Spoonfuls of Skippy, clusters of dry granola, cold Chinese takeout... I mean, frozen grapes. Why am I volunteering this information again? Jessica Leibowitz

Candy
Candy
Colorful, fruit-flavored candy, like Mike and Ikes and jelly beans. In fact, my wife just brought home some Swedish Fish the other day, and I think I ate every single last one of them before lunch. Nick Kindelsperger

Capers, straight from the jar
Capers, straight from the jar
If there are no olives in the fridge, or even if there are, sometimes I whip out a jar of capers and a small spoon when an extreme salt craving hits. I go through jars of capers faster than anyone should. Erin Zimmer

Jam, straight from the jar
Jam, straight from the jar
When I'm alone, I eat jam straight from the jar. Sometimes it's me, the jar, and a spoon, and sometimes I'll set up a few jars and do a tasting. I love how good jam tastes like fruit to the tenth degree. If I'm craving salt, I'll attack a jar of capers... But only if no one is watching. Carrie Vasios

Pre-prepared Hard Boiled Eggs
Pre-prepared Hard Boiled Eggs
"I was once at Trader Joe's and saw this pack of shelled hard-boiled eggs, and my immediate thought was Who is so lazy they can't hard-boil their own goddamn eggs? Apparently, the answer is me; because a few weeks later, I bought them on the way to work in a what-is-a-healthy-snack rushed moment and now I buy them quite a lot. (I hide them from everyone else in the office because I'm honestly embarrassed.) Sometimes you have to go for convenience."Carey Jones

Ice Cream
Ice Cream
The other night, my husband said, "we should probably finish this ice cream before we move," and went to look into the container to find I'd surreptitiously devoured about half of it when he wasn't home... Maggie Hoffman
