Are you an ice chewer?

When ever I get a fountain drink with ice, I ALWAYS chew the ice. It's why I don't mind if the cup is filled half with ice. Have never had an issue chewing ice. Crunchy with no calories.

Anyone else?

    (...reads thread so far...) Since there was no mention of this being a disorder of some sort, I will admit to doing this.

    My fav ice cube shapes are the one with a well/cut-out in the middle. The obnoxious crunching noises make me happy on a hot day.

    See? No disorders here 😬

    I do if it is that fine, round, soft ice. I don't chew the large cubes though, my dentist frowns upon it.

    I love large cubes. I've mentioned it to my dentist, and he discourages it, but has stated I haven't jacked up my teeth from it. And I've been chewing ice since I was a kid.

    No, and I can't stand the sound of someone crunching ice - it's like nails on a chalkboard to me!

    This was horrible and amazing at the same time. How did she just keep going? No tooth pain and no brain freeze. 🤯
    I didn’t mind the crunches but the regular chewing was ruining my life.

    🤔 "Hey Google! Can anemic people chew ice?"

    (...and down the rabbit hole she went while looking curiously at her bottle of Novo-Ferrogluc...)

    In all seriousness, while the human body - and all its mechanisms - remains amazing, I'm sorry you can't (obnoxiously) chew ice 😔

    I'm an ice-sucker. Is that as obnoxious as chewing? Maybe, when it gets too cold and you have to spit it back in your cup then start in again. :blush: I do prefer crushed ice but am not an ice-crusher maker owner so have to spend $ on it that I refuse to spend so don't use it often. :)
