Do you like many foodstuffs that stuffy food snobs would look down their noses at?

No, I have sophisticated tastes, don't you know.
Yes, and I'm proud of it.
Yes, but I keep quiet about it.

I like almost all of the things mentioned so far ;D

Butterscotch angel delight is one of my favourite comfort foods.  Smash and beans was an end of the month meal for years.  I'm not so very fond of Pot Noodle though.

Fast food - I don't eat McDonald's but Burger King onion rings are a guilty treat occasionally.  They're all ring and no onion.  

Plastic cheese is nice too, if you forget it's cheese.

Pot noodles (the curry ones, or the fairly recent special black pot curry ones (bombay bad boy?) with a little bit of my own chilli sauce or some Harissa paste added)

Baked beans with rice. (sometimes curry the beans with a fried onion added)

Those big cheap bags of mini cheesy triangle biscuits that all supermarkets have an own brand version of.

Frazzles.

Tinned veggie ravioli.

Tomato cup-a-soup.

TUC cheese sandwiches. (and TUC crackers in general, with cheese spreads of various types - Laughing cow ... philadelphia ... boursin).

Chicago town pizzas.

Potato Waffles.
You are in a maze of twisty flat droves, all alike.

When I was in school oop north (late 60's) you used to be able to buy a can of stuff that you upended into milk and after 5 minutes it set into a blancmange-y peach-y solid-ish stuff. Sure I've never seen it since, probably had too many colours or chemicals in it. Anyone remember what it was called?

In the 60s 'Chicken in a Basket' was an attempt to recapture the glamour of a Costa Brava Holiday, in a roadhouse pub. So I reckon that the naffest food you can get is the modern equivalent; that 'gastropub' stuff with its endless drizzling and pointless presentation. I do quite like the inevitable Lamb Shank with Rosemary Jus, especially if it's the boil-in-the-bag type. It's always fascinating to see how much they dare charge for it.

Everyone mocks me for my Ferrero Rocher addiction.

It is so bad that I have a rule that I can only eat them if someone buys them for me. If I started buying them for myself there would be no end to it. So I tend to eat them only in December (or if some kind person picks me up the small pack you get in newsagents).

Yes.

Not a patch on a sub you would buy in the states from almost any sandwich shop or deli.

Corned beef. Qourn.

I can happily sit eating a tin of corned beef with a blob of HP sauce.  Of course you need to wear chain-mail armour when opening the tin and prying the lovely contents out  (in order to avoid slashing a main artery).
I think I can actually hear my arteries furring up as I eat it.

Cold baked beans (heinz of course) out of the tin (Praise be for ring-pull cans).

Heinz tomato soup.  It looks and taste nothing like tomato but I don't care, I prefer it to the stuff that does.

Cadbury's Mini Rolls.  There is no upper limit to how many I could eat in one sitting, just make me a strong cup of team and line up those little blighters.

Tins of soup should be Campbells condensed (also acts as a good pasta sauce). But take the cream of tomato soup and add a generous amount of grated cheese when serving.

Have we had Findus Crispy Pancakes yet?  I was amazed to find that they still make them, albeit in a much smaller range of flavours than their 80s heyday.

And Arctic Roll, for that soapy aftertaste of cheap ice-cream.
And Darkness and Decay and the Coronavirus held illimitable dominion over all.
