i've been told that if you eat lots and lots of something, it's possible your body will reject it and you will develop an allergy. i consider this to be a true story, after the Great Cinnamon Incident of 2002, in which i consumed approximately 87 zillion gallons of Good Earth tea, and my neck swelled up like i had the mumps. ever since, i am unable to tolerate cinnamon, and am in fact so allergic to eat that RedBeard can't eat any unless he brushes his teeth before smooching me. it sucks to develop an allergy so late in life, because i already know that cinnamon toast and apple pie are DELICIOUS. not to mention i miss out on things like Lisa's bread pudding and Delaney's HFS tart. here are a few other things i have eaten an insane amount of:
Red Vines. when i was a kid (approx. age 12 to age 15) this was my number one candy. whether at the movies or stashed in my bedroom, a pack was always present. until i got a giant bucket of them at Costco. once that bucket was empty, i never wanted to see a Red Vine again.
Cheez-Its. they really are the best. we have occasionally purchased the reduced fat or low sodium varieties and they were kind of "meh," but then we'd get the real ones again and remember OH YEAH THESE THINGS ARE AWESOME!
grilled cheese sandwiches. occasionally upgraded to grilled cheese and tomato sandwiches, or grilled cheese and avocado sandwiches, they never fail to satisfy. many, many late nights at Mark's Texas Hots in Rochester were spent with a fine specimen of grilled cheese. the only fast food i EVER eat (not counting milkshakes!) is, occasionally, if we're on the road in the middle of nowhere and losing our minds with hunger, a grilled cheese sandwich from Sonic.
roasted potatoes. it's only in the past few years that i have realized EVERYTHING is awesome if you roast it in the oven. even brussel sprouts! but roasted potatoes are our go-to "I Don't Feel Like Making Dinner" solution, whether as part of Breakfast For Dinner or as a tasty sandwich accompaniment. i don't think i've ever matched the gloriousness of the roasted potatoes from Red Wagon (sniff, sniff), but they are still damn good.
i don't feel that "ice cream" belongs on this list, because really, every flavor counts as something different, right? it doesn't matter how much i eat it. it doesn't matter that when i was in Venice i ate gelato every single day. the ice cream food group is full of variety.
