Hello. My name is PotatoHouse and I am a _______ addict.


It is all summed up by Abby on NCIS;

Abby: " This stuff is more addictive than pistachios!"

Blank stare from Gibbs

Abby: "Seriously! Have you ever tried to eat just one pistachio?"

What is your food addiction?

  1. Anything salty and crunchy -- nuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chips, popcorn, pretzels.

        It's ALL about the crunch and texture :-D

      2. French fries. I refuse to buy a fryolator because it would be way to easy to feed that monkey...

        1. I can resist the urge to splurge on everything but cashews. Resistance is futile.

            Oh my husband is with you there..... Love cashews too....

            1. re: greygarious

              I am old enough to remember getting a wax paper container full of hot roasted cashews as a treat at Woolworth's in my hometown in the 60's. You spurred a sweet food memory Grey:)

                I remember Woolworth's. All but gone now around here.

                1. re: MamasCooking

                  I always got pumpkin pie with whipped cream at the counter. Man I miss Woolworth

                    Well, his heirs are enjoying F.W.W.'s mansion on Indian Creek Island off Miami, an incredible place. Made my grandfather's home there look like a caddy shack!

              2. Chocolate
                Chocolate milk
                Chinese Dim Sum in general

                (hmm.... I will stop.... I just realized that I unintentionally typed four items start with the letter "C")

                    <Not just "C", but "CH" >

                    Wow, you are right. I didn't even pay attention. Thanks. This is odd.

                    1. re: Chemicalkinetics

                      What about:

                      CHicken (of any kind)

                      ..... startin' to sound like a Sesame Street episode ;-)

                    1. re: chartreauxx

                      :D You are good. It turns out that I also love these two items.

                      1. re: Chemicalkinetics

                        i thought you might... i sure do!... we've crossed paths on several threads before and seem to have similar tastes! i like all of your things except the chocolate ones (which i'm allergic to). :-) lol... but seriously, who could say no to cheese?

                    2. re: Chemicalkinetics

                      Have you ever tried chocolate dim sum? No? Where is your imagination? '-)

                        1. re: LotusRapper

                          :) Yes, I should add all four them. I should have Chocolate-Dim Sum-Chip in Chocolate Milk.

                          1. re: LotusRapper

                            WOW! Chocolate dim sum. Thanks! And here I thought I was being a smart ass. What's next? Avocado confit???? In olive oil, of course, with just a tad of toasted sesame oil. Avocado oil would be overkill. Should be a good starter. Chocolate dim sum for dessert... What for a main????

                        2. re: Chemicalkinetics

                          Oh dim sum for sure, for me.

                          With the C, for you
                          curry? challah? cardoons? cat food? clams? ceviche? cabbage? cilantro? carrots? cake? cream? catfish?

                            <curry? challah? cardoons? cat food? clams? ceviche? cabbage? cilantro? carrots? cake? cream? catfish?>

                            While I like many of these foods, I think the only one I am addicted would be "curry". I do love a good Black Forest cake.

                        3. Crunchy, salty chips, pretzels and the like.
