What simple 'retro' convenience food product do you keep on hand, even if it's unhealthy and bad form?

I keep Jiffy Pop popcorn in those aluminium puff up trays. Cheep Chicken Pot Pies and Spam, and Ramen noodles.

Donut holes. I'm from the town that makes spam so I always have that on hand :)

Frozen pizzas and canned soup, to placate my college-age son on those nights I have to work late and he doesn't want leftovers. But I do go for the organic varieties...

Yeah, I decided at one point "I can do better than that"- my homemade, buttery pastry and filling were certainly far superior by any measure, but somehow, just didn't add up as well- I think their blandness is actually a positive. By the way, I recently tried the raspberry for the first time- not bad.

Vegetable bouillon cubes, potato flakes (for bread dough), a phase of using box cake and pudding mixes to make "cake in a mug" (now thankfully over), dehydrated onion flakes for a hit of flavor if I've run out of fresh onions.

I too use dehydrated onion flakes when I've either run out of onions or are too lazy to cut an onion. And, I've got dehydrated vegetable soup mix for making a quick soup at work if there is nothing else in the house to bring.
