Agree with the Stroopwafels--about a couple of times a year and that's it because I have no self-control with these things. They are absolutely wonderful and the box does not last long with me. For someone who normally does not care much about food, it's embarrassing.

Smoked herring-once a year maybe.

Royal Dansk cookies or Scottish shortbread cookies

Jalapeno Poppers (not often; greasy/fried food KILLS me, ha ha)

Ice cream sandwiches

Vanilla bean cake

Cape Cod White Cheddar popcorn

Chili Fritos

Cinnabon-I hate stopping at rest stops since more of them seem to have a Cinnabon in them and it's very hard for me to NOT buy a Cinnabon and a cinnamon iced coffee from here. This place is worse for me than the Stroopwafels; I have no self-control here either and go crazy when I smell cinnamon since I'm not a chocolate person but LOVE cinnamon

Only occasionally crave these things and rarely indulge, except the potato chips, I get a single serving bag about once a month.
I just bought a can of smoked oysters! We used to mix them in with the New Years treats. There were so many things on the table, that no one noticed.

Marcia....Thanks for the reps! I sent you a link. But just in case others are curious. Chocolate gravy, history and recipe. Fresh biscuits and real butter imo are key.

Chocolate gravy. I loved those words together when I first saw them. Now that I've clicked your links, I absolutely ADORE those words together.

Yep - the ones with actual large cherries inside and real milk chocolate.

I also stocked-up on big boxes of Maltesers from Target. They had them in their Christmas clearance section for $2.49 per box.
