Sweet tooth?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! I was just sitting here and had an incredible craving for Breyers Oreo icecream (and yes, before dinner!) I was wondering, then you have an urge for something sweet, what exactly do you crave? Icecream, chocolate, cookies, candy??? For me it's either Oreo icecream, or chocolate chip cookies and milk

My cravings have no pattern. Sometimes it will be chocolate (anything), other times it might be ice cream! I don't discriminate!

Oh you haaaaaad to bring up sweets, didn't you!? I'm a weight watcher and for some reason I've had a horrible battle today with craving sweets. I don't HAVE any in the house, so to get any, I must drive somewhere and buy it, which is a good deterrant.

My biggest craving is chocolate chip cookie dough. Whether it is just cold from the fridge, heated into cookies or mixed in ice cream. Oh...and a big mug of milk in a frozen mug.

I can pass on the sweets. But I do have cravings for salty crunchy stuff. Like potato chips. I have to buy crispy baked crackers to fool myself into thinking that I have caved into the craving.

Have you try 5 HTP yet ? It helps with craving and you can buy it in wal-mart or in a health food store .

I crave cholate myself sometimes , my fav. is York's

I go through phases depending on the season. Chocolate is usually a craving during the colder months. Fresh fruit in the summer when it is in season. But since I have a breadmaker, anything doughy is very acceptable anytime!

Hmmmm....warm cinnamon buns...

I always crave sesame chicken from the chinese restaurant around the corner from my house, or sometime Ben and Jerry's Chubby Hubby Ice Cream. I got rid of the hubby, but I still can't resist the Ice Cream, ha ha.

What is 5 HTP? Never heard of it.

I've been doing so well with weight watchers I hate to have these cravings. Cuz if I eat the bad stuff I'm stuck eating salad with no dressing on it for the rest of the day. LOL. I HATE candy (except for lemonheads), it's just ice cream and cookies and dark chocolate that gets me. Oh yeah, and cinnamon buns.

Ermm...and cake. Especially lemon.

And pie, too. I love berry pies.

And custard pies. I like them, too.

Uhh...I like brownies as well. With the crunchy edges that have been next to the edge of the pan. With big chunks of chocolate.

And milk...can't forget the milk!!

....Fat free, of course

We have this terrific ice cream shop nearby that sells homemade ice cream. They have like 16 flavors available at a time, but they're constantly switching them and trying new ones, so there's always a new flavor to try. Mmmmm . . .

Usually I crave brownies for the Little Debbie strawberry cakes (I'm not sure what they're called but they are wonderful. ) I also like fruit snacks and for that matter fruit especially oranges.

I however have been told I'm a little strange, I don't like icecream nor any kind of fruit filling.

I "have to" have a biscuit with my coffee at 10.a.m. and another with a coffee in the evening otherwise i'd pig out!.

Lately my sweet tooth has been for cookies, especially chocolate chip cookies and sugar cookies. Usually I crave the salty, like Janet does. But every so often I get the urge for a cookie, and unfortunately those have been more frequent.

My cravings change depending on the time of the month. But 9 out of 10 cravings include chocolate!!!!!! If you give me a choice between a super large caramel sundue with nuts and whipped cream and vanilla ice cream, and a sigle square of chocolate from a chocolate bar, I will take the chocolate even tho it will be gone is less than 1 minute.

Right now my craving is for Rocky Road icecream.

PS... DiMa, one of the tricks they taught at Weight Watchers years ago was to counter a craving for sweet with a sour. So if you are craving something really sweet, try a pickle. Esp if that pickle is really crunchy and sour.

When I crave sweets it's usually in the form of a baked dessert. I am always in the mood for good apple crisp. Or apple crumble pie. Or lemon meringue (sp?!) pie. Or cherry pie. Or butterscotch pie. Well I guess I like pie. And cakes too as long as they're home made. I like home made cookies too. And my boyfriend's mom makes the most amazing butterscotch squares. I also like anything that's butterscotch or caramel and that doesn't contain nuts.

Since I like a lot of baked desserts and stuff I never really have snack food hanging around. I like things that take forever to make (probably a good thing since I'm lazy otherwise I'd be as big as a house!) I'm not the biggest fan of snacks. Or even chocolate for that matter.... (yes I am a girl!).

Now my boyfriend...there's a sweet-tooth!! He eats wine gums, any kind of jube (sour or regular), those strawberry and cream hard candies, licorice all sorts, starbursts, oh I know I'm missing something.... I can't think of it! He also really really likes potato chips. He calls them "tasty treats". How funny is that?

Now I could really go for some butterscotch ripple ice cream. Or an Oreo blizzard from Dairy Queen. (well I guess I crave ice cream sometimes too) Mmm..... Is it lunch time yet?!

They still teach that...And I've just polished off a huge Costco-sized jar of Clausen dills!

But as with everything...sometimes the magic works, sometimes it don't! So this morning I bought myself a single donut hole and the lady drizzled chocolate on it for me...mmmmmm.....it was exactly what I needed! And only 5 points! I can handle 5 points. I'm going to have a spinach salad for lunch anyhow

What a day for me to skip breakfast!! You guys are making me soooo hungry. I've been thru a half-gallon of choc-chip cookie dough ice cream in the last ten days, and I'm still craving more!!! Perhaps a Blizzard for lunch (DQ is the closest restaurant to my workplace, how convenient!)

I absolutely looove chocolate...any kind...all kinds..

I am so "famed" for my love of chocolate that I always get chocolate as gifts (christmas, birthdays) and I am the resident "tester". I generally will give everything at least one try...

Gosh, I never realised how bad that sounds. Oh well, I am what I am.

There is a homeade icecream shop around the corner from my house and they make two of the best kinds I have ever had...one of them is called Sweet Cream--it will make you forget vanilla ice crea ever existed on any other level....and then there is my very favorite....mint chocolate chip. The kind that is bright green with dark chocolate slivers in it. Mmmmm.

My name is Cindy and I am a chocoholic. At the present time, there is a gallon-size freezer bag, in my top desk drawer. It contains Hershey's nuggets, fun-size Nestle Crunches, Baby Ruths, Butterfingers and Hershey's miniatures. My co-workers know that I am always good for a "fix".

Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! Any kind. Anywhere. Anytime.

Hello Cindy! Hello Mrsd! Fellow chocolate lovers...

Unfortunately for me I live in SA and have never had some of chocolate you have mentioned. Butterfingers sound good...maybe one day I will buy some on-line and expenses be darned!
