"... Which leads me to my Top 10 foods; these are equally due to the preventative and healing properties: as well as the taste! [10] CHOCLATE; I like chocolate occasionally. However, for me I find the qualities contained within quite amusing! Thus chocolate making it into my top 10 !!! ~ One of the major ingredients of the cocoa bean is a stimulating chemical; theobromine. This makes chocolate a mild diuretic and a gentle stimulant. The theobromine ..." Read review

I MISS YOU ALL SO

Advantagesyummy

Disadvantagesunderrated and/or overpriced here

"Let me start with an apology and the explanation. The list below is not a list of favourite foods; being a food-obssesive with all the good and bad aspects of that obsession I cannot possibly write a list of 10 favourite foods. However, let me introduce to some foodstuffs that are available in virtually every corner shop and greengrocer in Poland but are either not available here or difficult to find, expensive or, simply terribly underused and ..."

MY 10 MOST TASTIEST FOODS!!! Review with images

AdvantagesCooking Home made Pasta, Oriental Takeaways and tasty snacks!!!

DisadvantagesNone for me!

"...of the sauce type on top of it makes it taste that bit better, if i'm not mistaken...i'm sure they do these in different flavours (I only get the original type) It was this cornetto or magnum chasing my affections of the best and tastiest icecream...and it had to be cornetto because of the way it's presented, the packaging even stands out to me (even though I can't eat the wrapping) You can hold the ice cream comfortably by the cone without it ..."

Let us call this eating to order Review with images

AdvantagesWhat do you think?

DisadvantagesMoreish, fattening - whatever's fun is bad for you in some way

"When I was young I used to be very fussy about my food, as I expect most of us were. Nowadays I’m much less so, and I have very few dislikes. But naturally I have several favourites, so here goes. Before anybody starts making comments about expanding waistlines and the like, let me assure you that I do lead quite an energetic lifestyle which involves plenty of walking, for example ten brisk minutes to and from the bus stop each working day. And apart ..." Read review

I love food :-) Review with images

AdvantagesAbsoulutly georgous and mouthwatering food.

Disadvantagescalorific and not good for the waste.

"My Favourite Top 10 Foods? Mmmm This was always going to be a difficult choice, but after reading some other Ciao reviews on "my top ten foods" i decided i would attempt to write one myself. I am perhaps the worlds best food lover, luckily i dont seem to put any weight on, which is an extremely good thing, as i am almost constantly munching away. So, i have tried to write out my top 10 favourite foods, it was really quite difficult and i have sort ..." Read review

I love food! Especially the healthy sorts!

AdvantagesIts food - most people like food!

DisadvantagesThere are a couple of food types I don't like!

"...compiled a list of my top ten foods below - see what you think... 1) Creamy mash potato with chives... My partner came up with this tasty idea! He whisks the mash with some milk and butter until its completely lump free! Any lumps and I can't eat it! The chives add a bit more flavour and variety to the potato Much more tasty than conventional mash. There's nothing I don't love about this mash! It is healthy, tasty and most importantly doesn't ..." Read review

Life is Like a menu, never know what to pick next!

AdvantagesThere's some good restaurant reccomendations there, my favourites

DisadvantagesMay make you hungry, most of the restaurants are in Essex which is a bit tricky for many of you!

"Mmmm, food. One thing I will never be is a dieter. I eat fairly healthily (honest), but there's no way I'm nibbling on a lettuce leaf while my date/male friends get to pig out in front of me. Forget it mate!! I go for breakfast with one of my closest blokey type friends most days, (oi! Not a post anything breakkie you dirty beggar), and will easily match anything he eats. In short, I enjoy my food, and prefer to be happily ever so slightly podgy ..." Read review

"Must I keep it to 10? ok .. if I must here's my list, good or bad. BUFFALO STYLE BARBECUE SPARE RIBS. A friend and I once used a recipe and created a dish of barbeque spare ribs to die for. We took a simple hickory barbeque sauce, which is available from ASDA and added a good helping of Thai sweet chilli sauce from the local Chinese supermarket. Only after we had been cooking them for around 30 minutes, basting as we went did we realize something ..." Read review

It's food jim, but not as we know it!

AdvantagesFun to read

DisadvantagesMade me hungry!

"...an earthquake! This is my top ten foods of all time…I just wished it was a top one hundred instead! I love my food, just a shame that the rest of me does as well (beginning to look like Mrs Purdy) I think for me, that food is a state of mind. When I’m feeling low, I go for the chocolate and the ice cream. When I’m feeling thoughtful, it’s usually a packet of crisps (hmm or am I just being weird now?) Any way, here’s my top ten favourite foods! 10 ..." Read review

Anyone for Dinner? Lunch? Breakfast Maybe?

AdvantagesGet those taste buds tickling

DisadvantagesPickled guts

"...for me every time. My top 10 isn’t in any particular order – I love everything here equally! FRUIT I really can’t think of a single type of fruit that I don’t like. I love the huge variety of fruit that you can get and I must eat seven or eight “portions” of fruit every day. My absolute favourites are fresh strawberries smothered in brown sugar or with a big dollop of natural yoghurt. Fresh strawberries ..." Read review
