Do You Get Cravings?

I sometimes get cravings that are so strong for a certain food that I can hardly stand it. For the last couple of days it's been fried chicken, and I don't have any on hand. Since I don't drive I can't just zip out and buy some, but my ex just called and told me that he is bringing me some. Last year I got a craving for barbecued ribs. It took about two months but I finally got them. This seems so strange to me. It's worse than the cravings I used to get during pregnancy.

Ah--you don't drive either...I'm lucky though that I live in an area that I can virtually walk to everywhere since everything is close by...as for cravings...every once in awhile, not too often since it's not that great for one, but I crave something really salty....like go bananas over something like potato chips or just your good all round real junk food..LOL

We have one local restaurant in walking distance that is ran by an older lady who cooks very good food. This is where I usually go when I really get a craving, but, wouldn't you know, she is on a two week vacation right now and the place is closed down.

Yes, I get cravings for some peanuts or peanut butter. And even a cup of coffee.

Happens to my husband all the time. Some days he will just come home and say we have to have this or that for dinner. I get cravings for pizza sometimes when I haven't had it in a while. Its not strange at all. Glad you are getting your chicken.

I get cravings all the time it seems. The latest one being for macaroni and cheese. I have no clue why I got it either, guess was just reverting back to my childhood days..lol I'm not pregnant, at least that I am aware of, but since it turned August my craving for ice cream and hamburgers has heightened so much that I have been keeping ice cream and hamburger patties in stock just in case.

I tend to crave different things at different times. Sometimes I get such a craving for sweet, sugary food it drives me crazy as it is usually when I don't have anything sweet in the cupboards and all the shops are shut!! Other times I crave salty things like crisps and will eat packets at a time. Sometimes it is biscuits to dunk in tea. Occasionally it is for specific food like the other night I really wanted Chinese food so had to walk all the way to town to buy some.
