I am sitting very close to the 'fridge and I can hear the siren call of the shallots in spicy vinegar plus the onions in sweet vinegar. Bother. Mr DD has gone to bed and I am very tired and achy but even so . . . . . . eat me, eat me and then drink my juice. Oh bother.

So, what 'forbidden' foods call you at odd hours? I used to be a sweet girl but as my years advance (and my temper sours) it's the sweet-and-sour, the pickle and spicy that call me. I'm off to crunch - I thumb my nose at the consequences. DD

    Pickles, pickles, pickles all call me.

    Sometimes cheese but it's a no,no for me. As is chocolate, which calls my name all the time :oops:

    I can't have pickles because they upset my tummy! But when my sister was pregnant with her 1st child for some crazy reason I got her cravings and she didn't! And it was for beetroot! Never been bothered by Beetroot before but when I had the cravings I was getting through two jars a day!! But since I've had IBS I can't touch any of them.

    Definitely cheese and chocolate - but not usually at the same time. Now there's an idea!! Also love unsalted nuts. Whey can't we ever crave healthy food??

    Ice cream, ice cream and more ice cream. I can easily eat a family sized portion and even when I'm freezing in the middle of winter. Doesn't matter how sick I feel.

    Where do you all get your gherkins from and what brand do you buy,I loved the really large pickles you can get in America ,can you get them here ? Mig

    Check the polish selections that have come into supermarkets recently - gherkin heaven with proper dill pickle in there :D

    Is there anything that Branston doesn't go with? It is one of those condiments that must not ever be substituted for an own brand alternative - it cannot and should not be replicated!

    Marshmallows? Trifle? Hyacinths? Winter vomiting bug? :lol:

    You can keep the rest but I would probably give marshmallow a go and if Heston is reading this he is probably even now concocting a hyacinth foam to have on crackers with some Branston.

    Mmmmm, a foam of hyacinth with a mess of Branston, served on a bed of one fish finger, one chip and three peas. :wink:

    Just devoured four shallots in spicy vinegar. I promise not to moan tomorrow about pain. DD

    Mr LV has eaten all my sweet little pickled onions :x or I would be joining you in a pickly treat.

    I think those three peas would have been pureed with some mint or a polo mint at least
