I see that a lot of posters here on CD have this similar addiction!

As a kid, I gorged on Thanksgiving roast turkey, gravy, real mashed potatoes, stuffing, sometime rice with those, yams (but never the candied or sweetened stuff—strictly plain baked), and pumpkin pie. All homemade except the Pepperidge Farm stuffing, which my mother gussied up with tiny bits of things like diced celery.

It was considered normal for the holiday, but it’s a good thing that old-fashioned, old-school T-Day dinners are a rare bird now, cuz I’d still pig out on it. That’s not generally the way I eat, WHEW.

The small container of dark chocolate espresso beans still has another day of beans in it. I bought it last Saturday. But they sure are easy to keep on eating if I don’t remind myself of health-related effects.

Terrific book with an entire chapter on how Frito-Lay engineered an addictive seasoned coating for their original plain Doritos.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...salt-sugar-fat

Read it and realize how the consumer is merely a kind of lab rat...one that spends money.

Food that you find hard to stop eating

Honestly (and for the most part) I could repeat every previously mentioned food/snack item. I just have to stay away from all of it. If I think of ice cream I have some vanilla yogurt instead otherwise I coould sit on the couch and eat 1/2 gallon of moose track or rocky road ice cream ALL by myself. So I have vanilla yogurt instead.

I will say IF I got to see a movie at a theater I will definitely get buttered popcorn.

Looks interesting, I'll see if it's available at the library. I've read some other interesting tidbits about food flavoring too, enough to make me wonder why they don't use some of that science to make 'healthy' food more appealing and addictive, you know, green beans that taste like something other than green beans.

When they put down the freshly baked bread in Italian restaurants along with the olive oil and herbs to dip the bread in. It’s so good, I could devour the entire basket of bread.

Interesting about Cashews: I actually don't eat them very often, I will just give one or two to our little dog. she loves them.

Chili cheese Fritos. I had a whim to buy a bag several weeks ago and then had to throw half the bag out so I wouldn't devour the rest.
