I swear that Ritz Cheese Sandwich biscuits must be dusted with crack cocaine. I fancied some, just bought some and have eaten the feckin' lot because it's impossible to eat just one.

Please help me assuage my guilt and tell me that you lot do this about certain foods/snacks.

Pistachios are another example. I find it physically impossible NOT to eat the entire bag of these if I buy any.

I'm a demon for dark chocolate digestives, and I can finish 4 pints of semi skimmed milk in a day. mmm. biscuits and milk...

I trust my body when it craves certain foods, I reckon its trying to tell me something, like I need a certain thing that the food contains. I sometimes crave mussels, so I go have mussels :)

mmm mussels...

damn you peej, I'm craving loads of foods now!

Pistachios are the best thing in the history of things.

Well I didn't want to be the only fat bastard on here :)

I think it might well be the salt on those ritz things because I don't add salt to my diet at all normally.

I'm on an egg frenzy at the moment.

I've eaten about 40 in the last 2 weeks.

Dime bars are the shiznit. I love when they do those double bars, pure sugary decadence. They get right stuck in your teeth though

Aye, best be putting it in the fridge overnight as well.

Harbo is a bastard; love the fizzies but the cherry ones are rank and look like cock and ball in sweet form.

/politely declines

I'm mad for grapes at the moment; they do a 2for1 deal at the Co-op and I could easily sit there and eat the chuffing lot.

Not the red ones, though. Just the green.

Also in a close 2nd is lime in the coke. They do fresh lime.

3rd place is my bollocknaise sauce; random spices and big pan FTW! I've got some Moroccan style spices from Asda which you sling in with chicken, peppers, tommies and suchlike. I might just do the veggie version I'm right off chicken.

Mmmm. Had more eggs for lunch :)

Thanks for the concern about my plumbing! The gas is a mild problem, but I am presently annoying my flatmate with them since he took up the mildly infuriating habit of turning on the tumble drier at random times in the night.

With his belt still attached to his jeans, inside the drier.

THEY CHANGED THE NAME OF MINTOLAS?

HERESY!!

I love those. I must admit to being horribly hooked on Jelly Tots (the only jelly sweets that aren't made from pig skeletons) - But they only do pissy tiny little bags now.

Nup you used to be able to get big bags of 'em but not any more.

They are great though.

Though I'm not a great fan of biscuits, I'm rather partial to a plain Choco Leibniz (More chocolate than a biscuit™ - I suppose that accounts for why I like them) and could quite easily devour a whole pack.

When home at the weekend I brought back jaffa cakes, caramel wafers, caramel logs (Yes, Peej those!) and a few flakes. I was quite happy but this thread has reminded me of the lack of munchies or mintolas which I am now craving..

I'm also suddenly craving ham, egg and chips (even though it's the kind of thing I eat once in a blue moon).
Bunch of Cnuts!!!

G&Ds (an Oxford ice cream cafe place) do utterly gorgeous Dime Bar ice cream.

Mmmmm.
