    Generally it would mean a bag of potato chips, a candy bar, or something else along those lines. – Hot Licks Mar 31 '20 at 12:37


As it relates to meals you should understand "something unusually good", "a dish, dessert or something that people are usually fond of" and therefore very pleasing.
