Do you ever get a craving for something sweet to eat (drink), no matter how full you may be?

Asked by Jude (32198points) February 8th, 2010

Maybe, you just finished a good sized meal and you’re most definitely full, but, you have this craving – you need a little something sweet to eat. It could a piece of chocolate, some berries even, or in my case just now, a spoonful of Nutella. =) I find that I’m not satisfied until I have a little sweet something.

Definitely – and I fantasize about having a second tummy where the entire pint of ice cream will go to rest. and a spoonful of Nutella? screw that, I just use my fingers and I have a bit of a sweet spot for you too

Yeah what’s up with that? I don’t like cakes and stuff, but I always want some licorice or something after eating.

I’m not a huge dessert person (neither huge or needing huge desserts.) However, I do often want the taste of something sweet after supper. I usually keep lifesavers or Dove chocolate Promises in the house and have one or two after supper.

I eat fruit when I feel that way. It is sweet and healthy.

@philosopher Fruit is lovely in its place but it doesn’t do it for me when I want sweet.

Unfortunately on a daily basis.

After a large meal I can always consume a glass of Port Wine. Quite the stomach settler. Ummm…Spumoni is also a favorite when the belt is tight after a meal.

I am very health conscious. Sometimes I cut up apples and sauté them with walnuts and wrap them in philo dough. You can add agave or a little preserves. I bake them for a few minutes. You can put Ice Cream or Sorbet on top.

@philosopher Now you’re talking!

That is actually healthy. In moderation.

To me. sweetness is something that can be tasted upon the lips many hours after the consumption… all about the perspective.

If I were allowed to have that extra stomach, then there’d be room for me to eat a pint of cheesecake ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery. Every. Day. Oooh, smothered in caramel.

My tastes are simple.

Yes I absolutely do! It happened tonight as a matter of fact. I try really hard to stop myself because if I gave in every time I would weigh approximately 400 pounds.

Always. Why do you think I bake cupcakes every other night? lol

tinyfaery's avatar

All the time. I ate soup for dinner then immediately ate a mini pack of Nerds. I’ll think I’ll eat another one.

I can’t eat sweet stuff after a good meal…good food needs time to be savored in my belly before the onslaught of sugar. Better yet, I’d rather have dessert first then enjoy a great meal!

More often I crave protein – a piece of cheese or an egg. Better yet, a cheesy egg. Mmm…

I only crave something sweet maybe twice a month, and when I do I go all out and bake cookies or a coffee cake or brownies… Of course then I usually overdo the sweet thing since I have a whole batch of sugary baked good in the house, so maybe that’s why it’s so occasional?

Man, I could go for some hot fudge right now. Warm, thick and delicious hot fudge (and lots of it) on vanilla ice cream.

Hi, yeah. In my past life I was a beached whale, I had to be.

Dark chocolate in moderation is an antioxidant. Costco has dark chocolate balls filled with pomegranate. They are delicious .
Costco also sells agave a healthier alternative to sugar.

Not when nausea is on the horizon…

Yes, but we should try drinking a glass of water first. Often our sweet tooth is brought on by thirst.
