PMS Food…

Sorry if any dudes are reading this………..


I have this weird habit…

You see, there’s this one particular week each month where I get these cravings. You know what I’m talking about… right? I have to eat something salty, followed by a little something sweet. Or, I have to eat something sweet, followed by a little salt.

In high school, during this one particular week, I remember buying a bag of BBQ flavored CornNuts and a bag of M&M’s. I would eat a CornNut and an M&M at the same time. Sounds gross… but its not… trust me.

I’d like to say my taste has progressed over the years, but there’s still those days where a bag of CornNuts sounds perfect.

Now-a-days, during that one particular week, I like to stand at my kitchen counter, build a stack of saltines layered with globs of nutella, and eat it while reading my People magazine. It makes my taste buds happy 🙂

What’s your favorite salty-sweet combo? Or even better… what’s your strangest eating habit? Does it top my CornNut/M&M combo?

    I love pretzles in ice cream and actually the new pretzle m&ms are a perfect combo!

    That sounds kinda awesome actually. Although I’d probably do original cornnuts with m&ms, or even chocolate chips.

    Nutella should always win. I really loved the sweet + salty of the dark chocolate, pretzel, and candy corn bark I made this weekend. It was dangerous. Good thing it got eaten up at the party and the other batch was saved for the “boo” treats I have to do today.

    Haha…I like that combo ALL the time, not just during that *special* week. Sea-salted fudge is my ultimate weakness.

    Favorite sweet and salty combo right now is dark chocolate caramels with sea salt.!

    I used to alternate between a box of Cheez-its and a bag of chocolate chips with peanut butter!

    Mmmm,looks so good. Love your blog! I don’t have a weird combo just a ridiculous urge to eat chocolate all the time and on everything! This seems perfectly normal to me1

    Nothing too strange, but Fluff on a Ritz is to die for!
