Celebrate upstate New York junk foods on National Junk Food Day

Welcome to National Junk Food Day! Grab those looser clothes in the way back of the closet and hydrate — it’s going to be a big day.

Sure, you could have your McDonald’s breakfast, a Double Bacon Whopper for lunch and two bags of  Takis Fuego for dinner, but why not take the day to appreciate some of our native junk food?

The definition of “junk” did instigate a bit of a food fight in the newsroom, so let’s just think of some of these as treats or at least snacks that are not as healthful as baby carrots or a cup from our own upstate yogurt behemoth. 

You have our permission to sample all or some of these today. Really, knock yourself out — National Fitness Day isn’t until May 7. You have lots of time to work it off.
