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.

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.

Jarred mayonnaise, Hoisin sauce, that's about it.

Ramen, chicken bouillon granules (for making homemade rice-a-roni--gotta have that fakey chicken flavor!) canned soup.

Forgot the canned chicken and potato flakes.

Fish sticks for the kids.
Chicken and beef boullion powder for those times I forget to take the homemade broth out of the freezer. (which I just realized I forgot to do for tonight)
Jarred spaghetti sauce and salsa.

Sometimes, nothing tastes quite as good as old fashioned tuna fish casserole with cream of mushroom soup, canned tuna, egg noodles and a can of bread crumbs. I'll even throw in frozen peas for good measure.

Pepperidge Farms Apple Turnovers- a decadent flashback to my college days. Worcestershire sauce.

those turnovers are undeniable!

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.

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...

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