VeganTigress I am a sweet girl all the way. I love baking and from all my posted pictures of my cooking, you can tell! I like savory as well but dessert should be mandatory after ALL meals, in my opinion..LOL!

Hubby is more of a savory guy but I am slowly turning him with my coconut chocolate chip cookies! LOL!

Kindest Regards,

Kellye Savory/salty/spicy for me.

I don't mind a little sweetness (like hoisin sauce) but for the most part I don't have much of a sweet tooth. I rarely crave dessert, and would much rather have a hearty appetizer or soup.

Milk chocolate is just blah to me...but dark chocolate? Yum.

Lael I just noticed some egregious typos in my original post! Please ignore!

I've come to realize that my cravings are almost always for two things, on the savory side: Asian cuisine or Mexican cuisine. I could eat Italian everyday OR NOT without thinking about it, but don't get b/w me and the curry, burritos, pad thai, stir-fry, gah I'm so hungry now. And whoever mentioned crunchy, that's a huge deal to me, too.

For sweets, I even trend toward savory there, too: If it has cinnamon in or on it. And dark chocolate. Sometimes lemon. It's fun trying to pin down cravings.

We seem fairly split between sweet and savory! Interesting.

Bluebeen I like both but generally prefer savoury, spicy & hot!!

GhostUser I like them all....but Hot and Spicy is my Fave....The Hotter The Better

Photojess absolutely a sweet person here, and I don't like heat very much at all!

fadeaway1289 I like them all. I don't discriminate. Usually something salty/crunchy comibined with savory followed up by something sweet.

It used to alternate between sweet and savoury, now it's mostly savoury.

Do you get ridiculously cravings?


How do you handle them?

Give in to them. It's easier that way for everyone involved.

monsterbeans If I didn't think it may kill me, I would live on chocolate and its forms (my Dad's chocolate mousse, chocolate ice-cream) fact...anything sugary. Major sweet tooth person.

But occasionally, I will crave the strangest things...often thai-style curries and other spicy food. I think I'm sweet and spicy (not at the same time, and not so it reads much like a personal advertisement)

Poppy I think I'm generally more of a savory person - not sweet. I like a lot of hot an spicy things, too. But every once in a while, I'll get a craving and I'll have to take a bite of some deep, dark chocolate and let it linger on my tongue to melt. ahhhhhh!

Brandon I definitely like savory. Hot and spicy all the way!!

I also tend to love salty/crunchy things.

I almost never want anything sweet, unless it's fruit or on a rare occasion I might have a bit of fruit sorbet or something.

saxyphonist I have a major sweet tooth. Dessert has always been my favorite part of the meal.

But, since I went vegan I've started craving various savory foods, which never really happened to me before I made the switch. It's interesting.

Earthling I like things really salty, and I like things really sweet, I like things really sharp and I like things really spicy. Not all at once! My palate is really off, but it means I can enjoy pretty much any food that other people would find inedible. I eat lemons whole (minus the peel), jalapenos on toast... you name it, I like it.

I get cravings for salty and spicy more than sweet or sharp. For salty I usually make some tofu scramble with ridiculous amounts of rock salt. For spicy I make a vindaloo or madras.

Lael Do you have a preference? Do you get ridiculously cravings? How do you handle them? Do you have go-to foods?

As a rule, I'm a savory girl. The spicier and stronger-flavored, the better. But I do get sweet cravings, and it's usually not for anything specific. I had one now and made a cup of chamomile and added in a packet of stevia, which really hits the spot and isn't sickeningly sweet or laden with bad sugar.

How about you?
