Katie Boyer asked Michael Pollan:

Do you have a favorite guilty pleasure food?

Michael Pollan My guilty food pleasure, the thing I reach for if I'm in a gas station and need a pick-me up (I know, you should never buy food from the same place you buy gas) is Cracker Jacks. Now, you can call it junk food, but you can also call it a traditional native American treat, since the original idea, developed by Indians who would pop corn and then dip the popcorn in maple syrup. Not sure where the nuts came from, or the prizes, which have gotten really lame since I was a kid.
