THE "Most random, 'huh?', strange craving you've ever had" THREAD - Page 2

post #21 of 66
Sandwiches. Of all kinds. Subway, ham sandwiches (with pickles and tomatoes), tuna sandwiches, pb&j, ect. And my fridge has filled up with every kind of pickle. Bread and butter. Dill. Sweet. Relish. Of course I've always been a pickle junkie but lately I *have* to have them.

And as far as smells I'm totally going nuts over here! I run a daycare and have a little 17 week old in my care. I keep wanting to sniff his head remembering how wonderful my son's head smelled as a baby. And the little one's head smells like *nothing* to me. So so weird. Especially with my increased sensitivity.

Lucysmama - I am totally a smell weirdo. I don't have the same pool craving you do, but I can fully imagine it. What IS that? I enjoy some smells so much I don't want the enjoyment of them to diminish after pg! Like tea tree oil, I've never really liked it and sometimes thought it was a bad smell, but right now I just can not get enough of it.

Last pg all I wanted to eat was baloney sandwiches. (I never eat baloney in real life!) So at least this smell thing seems a little healthier!

I totally hear the poutine craving, not something I would normally eat but I love it right now!!!
As for other cravings, I have been in love with grilled cheese, watermelon (we have eaten 5 so far this season), pickled fiddlehead ferns, banquet breast meat chicken nuggets (not something we eat regularly) for lunch, Unsweetened iced tea (normally I'm a diet coke girl)
I think that is about it.
Oh and I love the smell of this one shopping plaza near me. There is a longhorns steakhouse there and the smell of steak and french fries coming out of that place is just heaven. And I don't eat steak.

Ditto for the fiddleheads!!! You were with me when I bought my 3rd pound of fiddleheads at the farmer's market - and I am desperately craving more of them, esp. now that the season's almost over. I normally love eating season to season, but this sucks!!

Warheads. You know, the super sour hard candy? I haven't had them since I was about 11 but all of a sudden I needed them. I picked up a couple at a candy store and they were so puckery and delicious. A few days later I found a whole bag at a drug store. I ate it in two days. By the end I could barely even taste the sour any more, I had become so desensitised to it.

Jalapenos on my pizza.
Pepperoncini peppers. On a sandwich.

OH man, I'm hungry.
Pepperochini peppers here too...

More specifically, I tell Subway to PILE THEM ON.

I know what you mean about smelling babies' heads! Especially when they're freshly bathed- it smells so sweet.

I can't wait to smell my new baby's hair

When I was little, we didn't have a Steak and Shake in our town, so whenever we were on a road trip and passed one, I imagined that they had big blenders into which they put steak, mashed potatoes, and butter to make a shake. So perhaps they could make your cheeseshake, too.

I'm big into smells, especially this awesome company called Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab (www.blackphoenixalchemylab.com) that makes amazing and unique vegan perfume oil blends. They had this cool sale a few years ago called Chaos Theory where you paid your $20 and they sent you a random, numbered vial of something they had formulated but not marketed. Mine arrived, and it smelled like hot lemons and sugar, and I was so disappointed. But now that i'm pregnant, all I want to smell is hot lemons and sugar, and i'm practically bathing in the stuff. Ah, serendipity.

I wanted a gravy sundae... Mmm Vanilla icecream dripping in gravy :

I didn't indulge because I was full but when asked at our favorite restaurant if there was anything I wanted this popped out of my mouth and sounded SOOOOOOO good. And I don't even really like their gravy. Our waitress would have gotten it for me in a heart beat too but I really was full.

Mmm poutine... We used to get the stuff at Costco or KFC but we just moved and the closest place to here is A&W for poutine... It's not bad but it's chicken gravy not beef... But it has the cheese curd... whereas anywhere else in this town it's just cheese and gravy :
