I have lived in New Jersey for a very, very long time, and I am really having a hard time with this one.

I have eaten so much junk food in my life that I think I am an honorary junk food expert. So when Zippia announced what the Garden State's top junk food is, it really took me by surprise. Mostly because I never considered it junk food. I consider it a food group. Maybe that's my problem.

In addition to eating a lot of junk food, I have witnessed a lot of junk food eating by others, and I can honestly say I can't remember the last time I saw someone eat what the article claims to be the state's top junk food. That's because I, and many others, eat them in private

It's not nacho's and it's not chips or pretzels. This item isn't a chocolate bar either. If you guessed Cheetos or Cool Ranch Doritos, you're not even close. So what could it be?

It turns out the top junk food here in the great Garden State is something you just can't eat one of. As a matter of fact, I doubt you have ever eaten one without eating a whole row of them. Any  closer to your guess?

This will give it away. Do you open them before you eat them. Just so you can eat the cream first. There it is. It's the Oreo Cookie. That is a great choice, but I am still a little uncomfortable calling it junk food.

After all, if you're doing it right, you're drinking milk, right?
