  • I had a craving of hot & zesty pickles and milk...I knew for a fact I wasn't pregnant but I could not get enough of those 2 things, lol
    There is also a certain Red Sauce I can only find at my local grocery store I crave that all the time! I get that with refried beans with chili peppers added in it and then on a whole wheat tortilla and cheese, doused with red sauce and you got the perfect quik snack

  • Your body is craving something in the sauce, salt maybe? If it was a spicy sauce, it could be the endorphins that get released in your brain (those are worth craving, aren't they??). Spicy food releases endorphins - chemicals that relax you. Guess that's why I put hot sauce on everything :)

  • yeah i wonder if its just there is something in it the ingredients that my body is craving but the ingredients are basically the same as hot sauce with just a few minor differences im just glad im not alone in this i really was starting to worry i was weird or something!
