“Experts” say that cravings are our bodies’ way of telling us we are in need of something that could be satisfied by eating “said” craving.
What the fuck do I need from Twizzlers?
Corn Syrup, Enriched Wheat Flour (Flour, Niacin, Ferrous Sulfate, Thiamin Mononitrate, Riboflavin, and Folic Acid), Sugar, Cornstarch, Contains 2% or Less of: Licorice Extract, Palm Oil, Salt, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Glycerin, Potassium Sorbate (Preservative), Artificial Color (Red 40, Blue 1), Caramel Color, Sulfur Dioxide, to Maintain Freshness, Mineral Oil, Soy Lecithin.
Maybe I need some Thiamin or Riboflavin? They add those vitamins to Rice Krispies so that’s good right? (There is a story behind why I don’t crave Rice Krispies any more. It’s a good story but we will save it for another time)
Maybe it’s Folic Acid? I hear that is good for nail and hair growth?
I hear that Red 40 is also good for you. Gives you a solid and healthy glow and also tastes fucking good.
So what am I actually craving? What is it I need?
