How do you feel when you have a craving for a certain food, but you have to settle for something else instead?

Asked by Dutchess_III (42443points) February 20th, 2017

Well, if this isn’t a spoiled first world problem, I don’t know what is!

I had this CRAVING for broccoli cheese soup from Subway. But they aren’t serving it today. Thinking about it made me really hungry, though, so I made a burrito at home. I’m full, which is the point, but it didn’t taste nearly as good as it usually does, because I really, really wanted the soup!

One time I was craving breakfast, but we choose a fish n chips shop instead since it was afternoon. (We often don’t eat breakfast on Saturday until well after noon.) I love fish n chips but it almost made me sick!

Subway sells soup?

Oh, the best broccoli and cheese soup! But only every other day or something. They alternate between the broccoli and the potato.

I feel like I’ll get it at some point the next chance I get.

I hadn’t had Chinese food for a few months and had been craving it. I just had it the other night so I’m good now. I went by myself to a local Chinese place and picked some up.

Don’t eat food because of their taste. Have you seen people in Africa don’t even get one meal for week they eat whatever they can’t they don’t judge food. Please respect your food others out there don’t see food for days.

Is this a marriage question? ~

@Shirley29 What does “Don’t eat food because of their taste” even mean?

@MrGrimm888 LOL! Could be!

^^^ It’s another way of saying the “there are starving people in China who would be happy to have that” bit that our moms would trying to use to guilt us into eating their horrid meatloaf.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yeah! My Mom used to pull that on us, until my younger sister snapped, one day, and said, “Then send it to the people in China!” We snickered, and she never said that again.

I know the gist of what she was trying to say. I was hoping she could clarify with a sentence that made some sense.

In fairness my mom’s meatloaf wasn’t bad. I’m not sure that it was great, but it wasn’t bad and certainly not horrid.

I never did tell her that dad was always the better cook though.
