MAYBE I'm alone here, but I can't remember the last time I heard anyone in New Jersey mentioned loving Chips Ahoy cookies. Maybe it's not something you talk about per say - you just grab it off the shelf and eat two sleeves in one sitting. But still I can't help but think there are other junk foods that are more popular in New Jersey!

  • Oreos
  • Cheez Its
  • Swedish Fish
  • Snickers
  • Ben & Jerry's ice cream
  • Lay's potato chips????

And in case you're wondering, Sour Patch Kids topped the list this year as America's favorite snack, and Kit Kats came in as this year's favorite chocolate bar.

What do you think? Is the love for Chips Ahoy really there? I'd have to go with extra toasty Cheez Its or Oreos! What's your favorite junk food?
