Cheese and gum

Postby Fluffypuppygal » Thu Dec 04, 2008 5:13 pm

I always thought I would crave pickles and ice cream. Nope! Cheese and gum! Can't get enough of either of them!
I just bought the biggest gum dispenser for work because I have bummed so much gum from co-workers that I figure I will owe gum for the next year!
Yum, gummy-gum!
And cheese! I can't get enough of it! I have cheese popcorn, cheese sandwiches (hot and cold), cheese on my salads, cheese spread on my morning toast, and a big cheese ball for those times when I just don't want to dilute my sacred cheese with anything but a thin cracker!
I am almost ready to go get a goat and start churning!
If anyone is feeling sorry for me, please send donations of gum and cheese to the Fluffy Foundation of All Things Chewy. If you find cheese flavored gum, please send two packages!

Your posts are so cute!!!! I love your sense of humor.

I've been craving cheese too, and dairy in general. My other big craving has been breakfast food - eggs, sausage, waffles. All that delicious unhealthy stuff!

Well, my first trimester all I could eat was cheese pizza so I can relate! I was hooked on red wine vinegar (had to have it on everything) but now I've moved on to sweets (dark chocolate works really well)! I'm hitting week 24 this weekend so it should be interesting to see what I start to crave next! :lol:

During my first trimester, I had the cheese thing (especially cream cheese on toast), and orange juice (and/or lemonade), and pasta, pasta, pasta....I couldn't have enough. Oh, "dulce de leche" hagen daz ice cream. Once I went to several supermarkets until I found it. It was like finding gold!

OMG I read your post about cheese and gum and LMAO............that is EXACTLY what I crave, cheddar cheese and bazooka bubble gum- I truely think it is he wierdest thing and so does everyone else. I cant eat cheese as much as I would like since I fight constpaton, so i guess thats a good thing!! I especially crave grilled cheese sometimes which is not something I normally like or crave...not since I was a kid anyway
