It’s a question asked by kids at sleepovers and by bored office workers around the world. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Don’t blurt out the first thing that comes to your head, because the answer may not be as simple as you think. Maybe pizza is the first thing you think of, but can you truthfully say that you won’t miss the satisfying, perfect bite that you only get with a giant plate of nachos? This entire list is a Sophie’s choice of delicious food, and it will drive you insane with just a glance, setting your stomach rumbling. If you think you’re up to the challenge, throw out your concept of healthy eating, undo the top button on your jeans, and vote up the one food that you would eat for the rest of your life.

Foodies have long discussed the one best food they would happily eat until they departed this mortal coil. Some people get fancy with it and choose a forever meal of a lone quail egg. Other folks, who aren’t afraid to get trashy with their bad selves, decide they’re going to eat nothing but bean burritos until eternity. But now it’s your turn to decide what one food you’ll eat for the rest of your life.

Vote here on your favorite forever food, and if there’s some weird regional grub that isn't already listed, run it up the flag pole and see if anyone salutes it.
