The term "junk food" typically refers to items that, while tasty, are high in calories from sugar or fat and offer little nutritional value. Such empty calories are celebrated today, July 21, as part of National Junk Food Day.

Because we know you care about your body and what you put into it — well, most of the time — let us offer a slightly different way to get into the spirit: by sampling local treats that offer an elevated way to celebrate the day's excesses.



While these spots offer plenty of guilty pleasures, they make 'em using the finest ingredients. That way you can enjoy the rush of being naughty without a gnawing feeling of guilt that follows you for days.
