My father bought a box of those every Christmas, and I continue the tradition. Unfortunately, no one will touch them but me.

A Philadelphia cheesesteak. I've gone years without eating one until the craving hits.

Malted milk balls.
Pickeld herring
Smoked oysters
Godivas dark chocolate, pretty much any of their chocolate.
Barbecue potato chips
Smoked salmon

Only occasionally crave these things and rarely indulge, except the potato chips, I get a single serving bag about once a month.

A fried bologna sandwich ( which really isn't the same as the ones from childhood because now I eat gluten-free bread.)

wow: I guess peanut butter toast comes to my mind first, followed by liverwurst. I also have to go along with the Frito binge; rarely do we eat any junk foods like that, but once in awhile I just have to have a couple handfuls. Another one, is Burger King: maybe twice a year, but when I have a craving for one, I can't help thinking of it until I get one.

An entire slice of cheese cake. Usually, I'll just have a bite or two of someone else's, but occasionally I'll spring for the whole thing.

I'll start -
Marshmallow peeps, about one a year is all I need. More if I am making smores with them ;-)

Circus peanuts - haven't had them in years, I would like one or two, but whenever I feel the package in the store, they feel stale (yes, I am THAT person).

My Royal Dansk butter cookies, one tin a year is fine.

Also stroopwafels, I got a craving and bought a big lot on Ebay and have been eating them sparingly since. I think they will last though.
I get the craving to devour German Chocolate cake to the point of near death every so often. My all time records is five of them in one Thanksgiving week end during my junior year in High School.

I was our Wrestling teams Heavyweight and even though I did not have to "make weight" like the others on our team Coach Smith wanted me to keep my weight under 210. On the night of our last weigh in before the long Thanksgiving week end I weighed 208#. The next weigh in on Monday I tipped the scales at 232#. My coach almost died from shock and i know I almost died from the extra laps and time spent locked into the steam cabinet.

Butter tarts! or Butter tart squares...

They are my absolute weakness but I try to steer clear of them because of my waistline. I could gobble up a dozen if I allowed myself to binge.
