Junk food? Comfort food? Fast food? Whatever you want to call it, you know it when you see it. Ready in minutes, usually with nothing more than some hunger and a microwave to hand. You don’t care about calories, sodium, salt or heck anything to be honest. Does it taste good? Is it ready almost instantly?
We love our junk food as much as the next person. Anyone who tells you they don’t love salt and fat is just a big ol’ liar in our book. With that in mind, if you’re willing to throw caution to the wind, here are some our the best, guiltiest grocery store fast food buys:
Kroger Chicken Sandwich
75 seconds tops and you have a chicken sandwich that’s materially the same as any fast food drive thru. If you’re feeling extra fancy like the 1%, add your own mayo. More info.
Great Value Chicken Dipping Sauce
If chicken is your thing, be sure to grab some of this too from the shelves over at Walmart. This mix of mustard/BBQ/honey is a clear homage to one of America’s favorite chicken joint’s signature sauce. Read more.
Great Value BBQ Pork Rib Sandwiches
Probably the best ‘at home’ version of the famous McRib out there right now. At least to our tasting, and we’ve eaten a whole lot. More info.
Tyson Batter Dipped Chicken Breast Tenders
At their core the chicken is less than stellar. That’s not the point though – the star here is the crunchy and rich batter. One bite and the oily-greasy explosion covers your palate. More info.
Odom’s Tennessee Pride Sausage And Buttermilk Biscuits
Breakfast in 60 seconds? Yes please. These early morning treats from Odom’s offer rich sausage with donut-sweet biscuits. Read more.
Chapparo’s Beef Tamales
It’d be unfair to call these junk food, lets call them comfort food. The quality is amazing, but so is the saturated fat. Ready in the microwave in barely a minute or more. Read more.
White Castle Sliders
Opening this six pack of sliders usually goes like this, “I’ll just have two”. Skip forward five minutes as all six sliders disappear…”Oh god, what am I doing with my life”, as the empty container goes into the trash. Read more.
Kirkland Brand Beef Polish Sausage
Don’t even dare look at the sodium content here, just don’t. Just dig in and enjoy one of the very best hot dogs in the Unites States. There, we said it. Read more.
Pierre Hearty Rib Sandwich
More rib goodness, this one from the aisles of Walmart. Read more.
On Cor Rib Patties
If you’re some kind of fancy dan you might want to build your own rib sandwich. Look to On Cor in that case – they’ll supply the industrially shaped ‘ribs’ but you’ll need to bring the bread and fixings. Read more.
Jimmy Dean Southern Style Chicken Biscuit
Normally associated with their sausage patties, the Jimmy Dean brand offers this decently little breakfast snack. Freezer to microwave to mouth in under two minutes. Read more.
