  • Be careful when you do this, because it can crack your teeth. You may like the texture or the liquid. Try ice water.

  • It can be a sign of low iron. I'm anemic and often crave ice, I read somewhere its related.

  • It's an iron deficiency. I also craved ice like crazy when I was pregnant. I heard from a few other women that they also craved ice while pregnant.

  • Are you pregnant? Crunching ice is very satisfying to me but it has to be the little soft ice pellets from somewhere like Sonic. When I'm pregnant I buy it by the bag. It can be due to anemia. I've had my iron checked and I'm ok so it's just one of those weird pregnancy things for me. I don't want it when I'm not pregnant.
