ok so my dentist will despair but for years now I have compensated quitting smoking with sucking on extra strong mints. I have a pack a day roughly (sometimes less, sometimes more) I get that, out of control feeling when I know I don't have them as a go to. I'm pretty sure its added to my weight gain too (understandably). Going cold turkey with this but wondered if anyone else is so draw to mints/sugar in such a way. Seems dumb to fight losing weight with mint sweets.

    My food weakness is nachos.. I literally cannot say no to pulled pork nachos with queso! I have to choose restaurants that I know don’t sell them.
    Also kettle corn is too dangerous to have in the house.

    My weakness is definitely Tennessee sour mash. I can't have just one ;);)

    Which of course leads to raiding the fridge or frying up some eggs

    chips (or crisps for Americans) and corn chips too. Cannot for the life of me eat the recommended portion. Doesn't even touch the sides. I do the entire family sized bag in one sitting. Or two, if i'm trying to control myself.

    The other thing is Ferrero Rocher chocolate balls. Entire box in one go. Easy.

    Hm...now this is a tough one, cause I've got so many. Um...lets go with self confidence. Idk how people are confident in themselves, makes no sense to me at all.

    Embarrassed to say I tuned in to see how many bagged on the title of the thread... grammar nazis are usually good for a laugh. So reflecting on that and ignoring that the entire thread is about food (chocolate please) I can see that I like to laugh at the expense of others. Bad me, no chocolate for a week....

    I actually usually have a couple of mints after dinner...maybe 8pm. That's when I can "snacky." I just want something sweet. I'm not actually hungry. If I run out of mints, I drink caffeine free tea with a small amount of honey.

    I don't think it's a "weakness," just a strong habit.

    Ice cream and doughnuts. If either are available I’ll struggle to pass it up.

    Personality wise, it would seem I struggle with will power when my favourites are presented to me.

    Good cookies. Like chocolate chip, or peanut butter with a chocolate kiss on top.

    Anything sugary, but ice cream is my major downfall.

    Americans don’t say crisps....

    English chips = American Fries
    English Crisps = American Chips

    There are very few foods that make me lose control. Haagen Diaz or Persian ice cream are a couple of them, and a good tiramisu. Otherwise im good.

    Other things besides food are my weaknesses.
