What is your " cannot just eat one" snack food?

I think that most of us love snacks, I know I do!! Even when the majority of us are being healthy or dieting there is always a moment when our resolve just weakens and we make a beeline for our favourite snacks, always with the good intention of just having one, or just a few. But how many of you cannot just stop at one or a few? How many of you just keep on munching until they are all gone? And what is your guilty pleasure in the snack world? For me, mine is crisps (potato chips) In UK we always get offers on the really big bags "Buy one, get one free" "OOh thats a good offer" I always think " I will get them and they will last me ages, I can just have a few each time for a treat" Hey, how come it never works out that way and I always end up scoffing the lot within a couple of days (or hours depending on my mood).!!!

i think that there are a lot of things that we can't just eat one of and the main on i would think would be potato chips because honestly can anyone say that they just ate one and didn't go back and eat more after that(if they liked the chip that is)becuase i know that i haven't ever been able to do anything liek that before..and another is like chips a hoy cookies...

Mixed dried fruit and nuts. Especially if it is tropical fruit and almonds. My other one is wasabi peas. Oh my I love these. Last but not least Macadamia nuts. My most recent find was Wasabi coated Macadamia nuts! These were awesome and I will never buy them again because the temptation to eat the entire can at one sitting was far to great!

Well thats a funny questio to ask me !!..my snacks lol wel they turn into meals!!...i do like potato chips/crisps...but i tend to like the really crunchy ones...I love Mc coys!!..i also love the cheesy snacks..cheeselets etc...oh they are so good...But ultimately i suppose im a sweet eater....and im not going to deny the fact that i can demolish a packet of biscuits in one swoop....theres just something that i can resist...my hand goes in and out like a yoyo...and when they are finished you would think that i would be riddled with guilt..but no...im just sad that ive finished the packet!!!!..Chocolate bars...another bad idea for me...how i envy these people who can just have a couple of squares and then put the bar away..but i have to devour the lot...I just put it down to a healthy appetite!!!!

Oh me too, I love the ones with loads of flavour on, and don't they stink when you have eaten them, my hubby refuses to kiss me when I have had them. Can't think why!! Ha funny thing about styrofoamy cheese puffs, have you seen the ones that come in some packaging? Well they just look like anaemic cheese puffs and my 2 year old daughter always tries to eat them!!

Hi gemini my favorite snack food is cheese danish. I try not to eat it to often, because it's the one thing i can't just eat one of.I love to sit down with a steaming cup of coffee and a danish{ok two danishes}lol and indulge.As this is double the indulgence i dont do it to often.
@gemini_rose (16257)

I have never had a cheese danish, but I have had a danish pastry before, with cinnamon, fruit and icing sugar on, they are nice.

They are regular danishes but instead of fruit they have cream cheese and icing.

I would have to say that my "cannot just eat one" snack food is chocolate pudding. I don't like buying the small individual packages. They're too small...lol. I have to make my own.

OOh yum, I like choccie pud too.

Oreo cookies and Thin Mint girl scout cookies. If I am going to have one, it is a sure thing I will end up having at least 4. I HAVE to get a few out at a time and put the package back in the cabinet. If I pull the whole package out and put it on the table I will just eat and eat and eat and eat and eat and............ well, you get it.

My number one snack that I just cannot stop at one is potato chips. I eat potato chips with a sandwich if there are no chips in the house then I don't want the sandwich. I like to eat chips with a boiled egg. Of course I also just eat chips by themselves. When my son was young I always told him if he wanted chips to eat a sandwich with them. And not just fill up on chips.:) I also love chocolate. I also love French fries.

How funny, I cannot eat a sandwich without potato chips either!!

I'm with you on the crisps. That's the one that gets me every time. With my wife it's nuts. She just loves them and can't stop at one, it's physically impossible. I suppose we all have our weaknesses. Now you come to mention it, jelly babies are pretty high on that list for me....

Just tell your wife to be careful with nuts, me and my hubby went to some friends one night and she put a big bowl of salted nuts out, my hubby has the same problem cannot stop at one, he ate literally the whole bowl, later that night he was really ill and passed out, we can only put it down to too many nuts as that was all he had, he did not even have a drink!!!

Lol. It is the same with me. I always end up buying lays chips inspite of being on a diet. My second weakness is chocolated. I just love them in any form. Recently a friend had got a box of ferroro rocher from abroad and i finished it all in just three days. ~pinks~

I love ferrerro rocher, if you have ever heard of a choccie spread called nuttella, that is just like the chocolate out of the middle of them.

Potato chips and chocolate. These are the food the makes it hard for me to maintain my diet. I exercise regurlarly however I don't feel I'm using its full potential because I cant seem to stop snacking on potato chips and overeating chocolates. It's hard because I have a sweet tooth and chocolates are the only ones that can satisfy my cravings!

@gemini_rose (16257)

I am lucky in that things like that do not bother me!! Just the potato chips/crisps, I cannot get enough of them!! Sorry about the diet!!!

With me, the list goes on and on. It could be chips, cookies, chocolate, and even sushi!! Yep, I definitely have a problem with food. I will not deny myself of the things I love but I am more disciplined with myself and its really hard. In the long run it pays.
@gemini_rose (16257)

I do not think it is a problem with food, rather than the wrong food!! But I think that healthy food is soooo boring!!!

This sounds weird, but those Thinsations. The little bite size cookies that come in the little packs that are only like 100 Calories a bag? I LOOOVE the chocolate chip ones! I can eat them non stop. Another is Fruit Cups. Especially the ones with the cherries in them. They make me melt. Unfortunately the syrup makes me sick after a while but I eat them till they get to that point.
@gemini_rose (16257)

I do not think I have heard of thinsations, but the fruit cups sound nice, I have not heard of them either.

There are quite a few snacks that I am like that with. I plan on only eating a couple but I keep going back for more. I would say the number 1 with me would be pringles. I almost every single time will eat the whole can of them. I just can't stop, they are so good. Once you pop you cant stop. SO true for me. It also depends on my mood as to how much I eat. Sometimes I can eat just a few without any problems. Although most the time that is not the case.

Pringles are a bit like that!!

My favorite snack food- I guess you can call it that, are french fries. It's hard to just eat one. When I go to a fast food resturant, I try to make it a point to wait till I get home to eat, so I can relax and eat. I end up telling myself "I'll just eat a few", and I wonder what happened to all my fries when I get home!
@gemini_rose (16257)

Fast food french fries are the yummiest and you just do not get enough of them!!

I know the feeling exactly, it is not fair that they make these things so tasty when they are so bad for us.

Chocolate donuts! You know, the mini ones. I rarely buy them because I will eat the whole bag in no time if someone doesn't help me!! I usually only buy them when I can take them to work with me and share with the others.

My biggest weakness at the moment is weight watchers chocolate cookies, who would have thought low fat cookies could be so tasty, mmmmmmmm. I have had 4 today and I still want more. I could easily eat a whole pack but I won't as I don't want to put on weight. It takes alot of will power to resist though. I don't mind crips either but I can resist them.
