I was always told, by my mom, to not drink mild or eat cheese because it will make you mucus thicker.
The only thing that effects a cough is dairy products, it seems to cause more flem which will cause you to cough more.

If you are coughing your body is doing it for a reason. I think you should stay away from dairy products if you have a cough. You could develop phlegm. I don't think junk food would make it worse,but junk food isn't really good for you anyway.
Mucus causing foods usually are in the DAIRY family. Milk, cheese, ice cream, yogurt, pudding, cream pies, are the most common. The foods that you have listed all seem to contain high amounts of salt & your cough can get worse from salty foods if you don't drink enough liquids to counter their effects. Those foods are also dry & rough on your throat which will also make you cough more. Stay hydrated & drink plenty of liquids, like juice & water. Ice chips work well on your tongue, cough drops, jello, fruit sorbet instead of ice cream if you crave sweets.
Yes there r certain foods that will irritate your throat: nuts, dry cookies, spicy foods, etc.
I was always told to drink warm milk with honey to sooth the throat, I prefer it with sugar.
