Chocolate ice cream topped with popcorn, Dry cereal (I don’t like milk in my cereal, it gets too mushy), and grilled iceberg lettuce (the only way I’ll eat iceberg lettuce).

I forgot to add in my earlier post that my oddest food preference is probably for day-old popcorn. I don’t mind fresh popcorn, but I prefer it just slightly stale.

londongirl1988 :   May I ask what kind of cheese? Because that sounds kind of good. Pineapple is my favorite fruit!


i don’t know if this is too weird and I don’t eat it often, but an ex boyfriend got me hooked on potato chips and cream cheese.  He called it “Polish Caviar” because his Polish dad used to eat it.  I crave that salty, creamy, sweet combo a lot.

One or two anchovy fillets right out of the jar. My college roomie and I used to do this together, never expect to share that weird habit with anyone else!

Tinned smoked oysters, ideally the spicy ones. I have a few friends who eat these occasionally, but I consider them a staple snack and always bring half a dozen tins or so when I’m traveling for work to places where food options are limited. I have never had a colleague express interest in sharing my snacks.

Cottage cheese and potato chips. I grew up doing this with just plain ruffles, but it’s really at its best with ketchup chips (a Canadian flavour)

Raw oysters — but like, a LOT of raw oysters. I know plenty of people who enjoy one or two, but I can happily plow through three dozen. 

Kraft Dinner (aka Kraft mac and cheese for the non-canadians) with a copious amount of Frank’s hot sauce stirred in

I’m with stella678 and missviolet92 on the Marmite — especially good under grilled cheese. I also add Marmite to a lot of my cooking (beef stews, mac and cheese, chili, etc) for an extra umami kick. 

Hot milk. Or even better, hot milk with foamed steamed milk on top! When we were kids we called these “kiddie capuccinos” and i still find them delicious and comforting. 

And since this ended up having a number of Canadianisms in it, I’m adding an honourable mention for caesars, which are the Canadian twist on bloody marys, made not with tomato juice but with a delicious tomato-clam juice blend. This is a normal and extremely popular brunch beverage here (and I hear Mexico is into Clamato as well?) but non-Canadians tend to find it horrifying.
