    This thread has taken the most unexpected turn possible. Period.

    That's just the flow of conversation.

    I'm just "red" with envy that you came up with this topic...

    Really? I'm a bit anemic on this topic.

    At least it doesn't have any pregnant pauses.

    This thread is raising all kinds of red flags for me. :)

    Perhaps your fellow co-workers are actually adults that find 'Skittles' and the like simply awful....

    Your data doesn't speak to addiction, but it shows that people have a preference for sugar when it's mixed with a lovely fat, such as cocoa butter. Throw in the a bit of cocoa and-- shazam-- all the pleasure centers firing at once!

    It indicates the issue is not specifically sugar.

    Agreed. It also indicates that it is an issue of food preference, not addiction.

    They're not addicted to sugar, they're addicted to love:

    And even more compelling evidence:


    On a related note, I have long maintained that he did, in fact, mean to turn me on.

    Does it? Why would you think this?

    I would imagine we have all known people who smoke right? Does every smoker you know compulsively choose to have a cigarette every time they see a pack of cigarettes or see someone smoking?

    What if they decide to bum a cigarette at a party? What does it indicate if someone who forgot their cigarettes chooses to decline a cigarette if someone offers them a menthol? Does it mean they are not addicted because they declined accepting a delivery method that they don't care for?

    That's basically the argument you are making with your candy bowl analogy.
