THE "Most random, 'huh?', strange craving you've ever had" THREAD - Page 3

For a while I couldn't get enough of pickles and cranberry juice (together) sometimes I would squeeze fresh lemon juice into my cranberry juice. Now I really can't live without olives (green ones) I'll eat a whole jar if I don't watch it.

You can have my green olive jar.

My mom sent us a huge one (I don't know why!) Green olives are my "yuck food" this pregnancy

I've been just craving really junky food like cup o' noodles, ramen, and bagel bites. It makes me feel so guilty.

Pepper jack cheese with salsa on top. I'm drooling just thinking about it.

ok i am decidedly NOT pregnant, but when i WAS pregnant, i CRAVED the smell of chlorinated water, like from the pool, or the local fountains for the kids to play in. OMG the thought of that smell would make me salivate.
also. Charlies laundry powder, the smell of it straight from the bucket, into water, it would make me salivate so badly. i did NOT want to eat it. but i did want to stand there and huff huff huff all i could.

i am a big sniffer anyways, but when pregnant i CRAVE certain smells.

I don't think I'd classify this as a weird craving, but I'm constantly craving club soda and mineral water. At first I put tons of lemons and limes in it, but now I just drink it straight.

Talking about smells, mostly I just can't stand the smells of a lot of things. But DH's Uncle was totally making fun of my BIL (the oldest in DH's family) at a family party telling him how my MIL liked to sniff gasoline when she was pg with him.

DH's Uncle said that my MIL would make my FIL go get the gas cap off the car and wrap it in cloth for her to inhale happily. We all ribbed my BIL about it, but DH's Uncle likes to spin yarns so we thought he was just making things up to be funny.

Well when DH and I were over at his parent's this weekend, both FIL and MIL confirmed that it was true!! MIL said she just couldn't get enough of the scent.

DH who is the baby in his family looked kinda worried and said, "Uh Mom, did you have any sniff cravings while you were pregnant with me?"

haha- this thread is hilarious! and stiring up my appetite =) if only i could find pepper jack cheese in NZ...

unfortunately, we live 1 hour out of town, so often when i have a spontaneous craving, it is unattainable for the immediate moment- though it usually sticks if it's a strong enough one!

i'm about 10 weeks along & often super queasy, but for the past week i've been eating peanut butter & jam sandwiches with corn chips (between the bread, that is). not TOO weird cause i ate similar variants as a kid, but my dp thinks it's pretty weird.

i'll have a couple days of only eating crackers & bread & boring things, then suddenly i wasnt spicey pad thai! makes NO sense to me...

I really really wanted

sushi and potato salad. I never got it though because I am very particular about my potato salad and I wanted the kind that is yellow- more mustard based- and everywhere we went that night only had the creamy white kind. Plus I couldn't find anywhere that had sushi along with it : DH thought I was totally disgusting for even wanting it

If you lived in Japan, you would have been fine. I've seen both packaged together before, though most often you would have had to buy them seperately.

I'm not pregnant, followed this from the new posts...anyway

When I was pregnant with my last baby I really wanted shrimp cocktail and cheesecake. We went to a brunch after church and both were being served! I would take a bite of shrimp, then a bite of cheesecake and eat it altogether. It makes me kinda sick now but then it was delicious!!!

I'm not pregnant, but so want to be. And loving this thread!

With my dd I once had to go directly to the store, buy grapefruit juice and drink it. Just once. And I don't think I have bought it any other time in my life.

Ketchup. I was too ashamed to just eat it so I had to hunt around the kitchen for something I could reasonably put ketchup on.

Beer. Gave in and had a fake one.

Vegemite!! This was problematic because you USED to be able to get it in Canada, but you can't now. So I was asking everyone to keep a look out and everyone kept saying "oh Safeway/IGA/Save On has it all the time", but they didn't! Worse the people that suggested Marmite, gross! Thank god for the Aussie owned Cobb's bread and their cheeseymite roll (like a cinnamon bun but with cheese and vegemite instead). So good!

I am ttc now. I have a BIG jar of Vegemite already in the fridge.

I wonder what exactly our bodies are missing that our noses think chlorine water has to offer?

I'm in the pool water club too! Mine actually extended to this pet stain deordorizer spray called Natumate (?), I was trying to cover up a kitty temper tantrum and wanted so badly to drink it like water from the sprinkler when you're a kid.

Oh, and SO read about pica in his book and keeps accusing me of sneaking dirt.

I love the smell of Chlorox Green Works toilet bowl cleaner. It's the perfect sweet lime. Now, if I could just get someone to bottle that scent without the whole "chemical cleaner" thing...

So the past few weeks, I've seriously "needed" Indian food. There is a yummy Indian buffet down the street from us and even though we're not big on eating out, I've been getting my husband to go with me once a week

I really should just learn how to make the stuff...The dish I mostly crave is Chicken Makhani.

Oh gosh, today is our weekly Indian food trip...We leave in 30 minutes. Yum.

There is an Indian spice shop down the road as well, I think I'm going to whip out my unused Indian cookbook and write down ingredients for something that looks good

Anyone else getting curry cravings?

OMG that's great! I don't feel so bad now. I've been loving the smell of Windex...

Can we say horrible?

Thankfully, I don't clean with it, I just like being in the room when someone else does. Then I feel guilty.
