Here in the past couple years I have had some odd cravings. Jello, Tapioca pudding and Tang just to name a few. The only one I relented on was canned fruit cocktail and mini marshmallows a year or so ago. Hot chocolate hits the list now and then but I don’t actually like to drink it, neither made with milk or water.

Right now, Jello is topping that list pretty hard. Which is strange because I am sure I have not ate any in 30-35 years or so. It will pass eventually. But surely I am not alone on such odd cravings for things that I don’t particularly like nor hate exactly, but just have not had in years that honestly don’t taste exceptionally great to cause such an urgent desire to consume.

Bizarre cravings.

I think I can safely skip that possibility...

I read somewhere those can be a sign of your body needing something that food has. The trick is to find a healthier food that has the thing you're needing.

I have no idea what Jell-O might be except that Jell-O is made of collagen basically.

You could be craving laundry detergent, comet or steel wool for that matter . 😁

I had a cat that had pica and OCD. She wanted to eat anything that was out of place to hide it. Like if I tossed some pocket change on the end table and a coin ended up on the floor I had to get to it before she did. A button down shirt that was buttoned up was okay. Unbuttoned meant that buttons were only on one side so she had to remove them.

I dunno, the jello I'm used to was made with vodka, so, maybe...alcohol?

Sounds like you are craving collagen. Why are you craving it is the issue. Type one is the kind found mostly in jello I think.

I get a craving for it once in a while, especially after I hurt a knee or joint somewhere in the body. I do it automatically, always have. I just figured out why I get the craving, it took a lot of research to figure out cravings are often necessary cures.

WTF?

I mean, I have had cats that liked green beans over shrimp, canned creamed corn, and lil debbie starcrunch, but buttons and change?

lol

Tapioca pudding, man i could eat a gallon of that stuff.


I get cravings for olives a lot. And spicy hot foods, got into ghost pepper stuff for a bit a couple months ago. I love it, but my guts dont really care for it all that much.

If you get a craving for spice, i highly recommend Mrs renfros ghost pepper salsa. Really good flavor, really spicy.

That reminds me of a joke I probably shouldn’t tell . Lol

A guy walks into a bar with a monkey on his shoulder .

He walks up to the bar and order’s a beer .

That’s when the monkey jumped off his shoulder and ran down the bar .

And ate everyone’s popcorn, peanuts potato chips .

Then the monkey jumped on the pool table and ate the cue ball

The bartender yells at his owner and says did you see what that little SOB did ? He ate everything on the bar then he ate the cue ball !!

The guy says that doesn’t surprise me he’ll eat anything .

So the guy pays for the snacks , beer and cue ball then leave’s

The same guy comes into the bar about a month later. Just like last time he ordered a beer and the monkey jumped down off his shoulder and ate all the snacks on the bar .

Then the monkey went over to a jar of Maraschino cherries . He pulled one out shoved it up his butt then ate it .

The bartender yells hey did you see what your monkey did? He shove the cherry up his butt .

The guy says it doesn’t surprise me he’ll eat anything.

But now he measures it first . 😁

So why not just indulge your cravings from time to time? Bringing up Jell-O reminds me of instant pistachio pudding I had as a kid. I think cravings can be in part of feel-good memory associations.

I will get some pudding mix next time I go shopping.

Why deny a little craving?

Funny.

I crave salsa all the time. I love salsa, especially hot stuff like Herdez or Renfros. But come 4a it #s me up.

I recently bought Renfros habenero salsa. Tastes more like a sauce than a salsa, but still good. And hot. Fire.

And always my Salsa Thread

Our dog would meticulously nip the seam on my wife's bra and pull out the underwire without destroying it, and would open a stuffed animal at the seam about an inch long and just pull out the stuffing and not eat it then he would just carry around the pelt.
Animals can be strange just like humans.

Same cat decided to go through my boxes and found a white rabbit pelt from a project I decided against after I had bought some pelts. She carried it around as her kitten. Would bathe it. Beat the crap out of the other cat when he went near it. Brought it up on the bed and slept with it. After a couple years it was rather ratty and I removed it and replaced it with another one. It was not her kitten. So she more or less abandoned it.

Yeah. A while back I had a craving for Tang. I didn't succumb to it, but it was a mighty odd craving. I don't think I've even thought about Tang since last century.
