Foods you just can't stop eating!?

Just thought I'd start a thread about those little things that we can't get enough of, that mess up our diets, make us chew when we don't even want to and we love but wish were never invented

For some it's peanuts, cookies or ice cream.
For me it's Calamata olives (big fat juicy ones!), fruit Sorbet (my favourite is lime), peppermint ice cream, chilli biltong, camembert with plain salted crackers, watermelon, fresh black figs, ripe red cherries, litchis, passionfruit, lemons and hummus with veggie sticks

I could think of many more but I think that's enough for now!

What's your quilty pleasure?

Mac and cheese with tomatoes. I make a full pound in my largest pan. I take just one corner for myself and give the rest ot one of my kids. Because if I don't I will eat the whole thing. Until I get sick. That is also why I don't make it too often.

Lately it's been peanut brittle. My sister gave me two big bags that she had made. I'm down to one I can't walk by the kitchen without grabbing a couple pieces.

I can relate to that. I love Mac 'n Cheese too! I like it most when it's baked and the cheese sauce just sets like a custard. I must have tabasco sauce and some tomato or onion chutney with it. I can eat bowls full!
I always sneak a bowl while watching telly late at night and savour it

Oh Yummo! Cashew Nut Brittle is my favourite. Luckily I have to buy it, it flops when I make it at home. If I could make it I'd never stop eating it

I make batches of peanut brittle every Christmas, and I literally do not eat even one piece, because if I do, I can't stop.

Chips are another weakness, especially tortilla chips and dips/salsa. I don't keep them in the house, and the only place I indulge is the Mexican restaurant.

Oh wow ... I have more than 1 .. brownies would be first .. I love those things. There is a really bad product that I wish had never come into my life yet I love eating .. Munchos .. they aren't even real potato chips but they are super salty and they have a big ONLY $2.00 printed on the bag .. they call me everytime I go to the store !! And I also love Pringles - again .. not real potato chips but something about them .. and yes I can get my hand down to the bottom of the can LOL

Good things I love to chow down on would be watermelon and peaches .. can eat them till I feel like I would pop.

Pringles are great! I love the salt and vinegar and the sour cream and chives

Haven't had a brownie in years. I loved the ones my ex mother in law made, they were chewy and moist. Almost like chocolate toffee fudge

Wow! Just Googled Pringles Flavours. I didn't realise how many new flavours you get! Haven't eaten them in about 4 or 5 years lol! Think I must try the chilli and lime or the shrimp flavour :)
