Foods We'd Be Willing to Commit a Crime For

chicken mcnuggetsSome people love them their fast food, and they'll let nothing -- seriously, nothing -- stand in the way of them and it. Not even a lack of money. Last week, a woman in Los Angeles was arrested for offering sexual favors to a McDonald's employee in exchange for Chicken McNuggets.

This poor woman clearly had some problems, and shouldn't be made fun of, but the situation did get me thinking: What kind of foods are worth committing a crime for?


It's been a while since fast food was part of my typical repertoire, so perhaps I'm a bit rusty, but if my memory serves me correctly, Mickey D's breakfast was where it was at. An Egg McMuffin, some hashbrowns, one of those little orange juices -- pure, greasy, regrettable goodness. Now I would never -- ever -- prostitute myself for anything (commenters, please take note), but I would maybe, possibly do something illegal for these five delectable foods.

McDonald's breakfast. No need to explain why, you heard it above. Man, is that stuff good. I'm going to be thinking about it all day.

A really good, really fancy mac and cheese. I'm not talking out of the box here, I'm talking a homemade, oven-baked plate of goodness with stinky cheeses like brie and goat. I'm lactose intolerant, so I rarely get to enjoy things like this. Heaven.

A Shake Shack burger with all the fixin's. This is a New York thing, but if you've never had one, you're missing out. These burgers were so built up to me that I thought there was no way they could ever live up to the hype. Boy, was I wrong.

A cone with soft-serve vanilla and rainbow sprinkles. In this little fantasy I'm having, I can eat all the dairy I want. Suspend your disbelief.

A plate of really good French fries. Doesn't matter from where. I'm not loyal. A good plate is a good plate. Ooh, maybe with gravy for dipping.

Well, now I'm starving and my will power is at an all-time low. It's a good thing McDonald's -- which happens to be down the street -- is no longer serving breakfast.

What foods would you commit a crime for? Not like a real crime, a fake crime; this is a game.
