Why do I have flu-like symptoms (joint pain, weakness, fatigue, irritability, brain fog) for days after eating one piece of junk food (i.E. Candybar)?

In brief: Unrelated

It is extremely unlikely that candybar has anything to do with your symptoms.
You may have a common cold, flu, reaction to medication and in uncommon cases it may be a prodrome of a more serous illness. If the symptoms do not abate in week, it would be prudent to see your doctor.
