    The 29 Best Comfort Foods On The Planet

    Tell the haters to go ahead and step off. You deserve this.

    1. Macaroni and cheese from a box.

    Yes, from a dang box.

    2. Frozen lasagna.

    Don't even start with me. Stouffer's gets that job done faster than I can even read read a lasagna recipe from start to finish.

    3. Grilled cheese and Campbell's tomato soup.

    If there are ANY chunks of real tomato in my soup, sometimes that simply will not do.

    4. Mashed potatoes.

    Give me all of the butter suspended in fluff. GIVE IT TO ME.

    5. Spaghetti and meatballs.

    Yes technically pasta with red sauce should look like this, all properly emulsified with its sauce in a sauté pan. But sometimes you just want to dump some dumb red sauce and meatballs on top of a pile of pasta so you get a few bites of that plain, white-flour spaghetti. THERE I SAID IT.

    6. Chef Boyardee anything.

    Even the raviolis. I don't care.

    7. Entenmann's raspberry Danish twist.
