    There’s not really anything specific that I need everyday but in general, I need something sweet like 3 times a day at least lol. I don’t know how some people rarely eat sweets

    Hot tea with half and half is literally my new comfort food. I also tried to think of a food I couldn’t live without but since I enjoy what I eat it was too hard to isolate one thing. I really don’t think I could live without my tea. lol

    Even if weather is hot?

    Oatmeal, coffee, and Ice cream. Yes, I do eat ice cream about 3-4 times a week, but I have learned to eat just 1/3 a cup so I can have it often and I am faithful to track the calories on my Food diary.

    My new found love for brown basmati rice! I only recently discovered, it tastes miles better than white basmati rice.

    If I could I would eat chocolate cake & donuts everyday. No question.

    Proper liquorice, but I have to as there's no real liquorice available in the UK :'( Everything is just flavoured with anisseedextract, which doesn't give me the 'liquorice kick' :# Aaaargh!

    What's half and half? In Dutch this would refer to 50% beef and pork mince, thus I have a really, REALLY odd picture in my mind now.

    lol!! Half & half here in America is 1/2 cream and 1/2 milk that is popular for putting in coffee and tea.

    What do you classify as "proper liquorice"? Dutch liquorice? I've had that in the UK... We even get it in aus, and even a lot of the normal liquorice here (of the 5 supermarket brands I just looked at) is made with liquorice extract.

    (Bassett's liquorice all sorts are made with liquoricr extract... Or is real liquorice made with something different?)

    I know, but there's always anisseedoil in them as well. This is much more concentrated than liquoriceroot, and added in smaller amounts, hence at the bottom of the list. Yet it provides most of the flavouring. And that's something I taste. Bassetts doesn't taste at all like proper liquorice to me but just slightly flavoured sugar, really. Yes, thinking of a few Dutch, German and Scandinavian brands. :'(
