Sudden food obsessions?

I've never hated fruit and ate mostly strawberries and apples and grapefruit but recently I have become fruit obsessed with fruit - today's tally so far is 2 granny smith apples, 1 peach, 1 pear, 2 blood oranges. I'm glad at least it's not french fries, so I'll goo with it. Perhaps it's the season of fruit with all of the refreshing citrus, but it just hit me and now I can't stop. Anyone ever have random and sudden food obsessions?

          Yes. Lately it's yogurt, this new Greek kind. I hate the containers some of them come in, with the flippy-floppy thing with the fruit. Are you supposed to flip the container with the fruit in it onto the yogurt container?

          The fruit sticks in some flavors (strawberry) and I end up dipping yogurt into the fruit container. I have to use a tiny espresso spoon.

          Before yogurt, I was eating a lot of grilled cheese, and also St. Andre with good bread.

        2. Lately for me it's D'Anjou pears, I have no idea why. I've always loved both, but it's probably been years since I snacked on a plain, whole pear, and now I want one every day.

          1. I wish I had an obsession with fruit! I've been drinking a lot of ginger ale lately... bad, because I don't generally drink much soda. I've also been craving lots of savory snacks... chips and crackers.

              I just noshed on apple #3. This habit is getting quite expensive but I guess I'm loading up on fiber.
