What wine with junk food?

May 11th is Eat What You Want Day. We all know what that means. It's all about the junk food that tastes soooo good and is soooo unhealthy.

We're talking doughnuts, chili dogs, potato chips, Oreos, and all the other things we stuffed our faces with when we were 12 years old--before we had a primary care physician to tell us to only eat raw green beans dipped in vinegar or we will die an early, horrible death.

So naturally we should decide on what wine to go with your day of pigging out. It's tough to come up with a single wine because there are so many different flavors here. Though it boils down to sugar, animal fat, and salt, I suppose. My best guess would be a cheap sparkling wine. Nothing over $7 a bottle otherwise you'll look like a snob at the doughnut store in the morning (most doughnut shops do not charge corkage BTW). If you go to your local Burger King order the secret combo #13. It's not on the list, but it's a Whopper, fries, and a glass (a Solo Cup actually) of Two Buck Chuck.
