Pica

Pica is the persistent craving and compulsive eating of nonfood substances.

I read about this condition, or disorder, when I was pregnant with Dylan. It made me chuckle a little, but apparently it often happens to pregnant women. Now I'm not saying that I am craving inedible foods per se, but (I have to take a pause here to chuckle at myself, and perhaps I should be saving this for a Not Me! Monday post) . . . I have been craving malt powder.

If you're not sure what it is, think about the middle of a Whopper but in powder form.

Oh man, just the mere mention of it makes me want to go home right now and sneak a spoonful. And I want to sprinkle it on everything I eat, like it's a condiment or something. Last night, I had a small bowl of ice cream with a little chocolate sauce drizzled on top . . . and YES, I finished it off with a dusting of malt powder. I didn't even know they sold this stuff in stores. Curse Justin for knowing this kind of stuff! Anyway, I guess you can call it my "Random (And Completely Strange) Craving of the moment".

That is so funny. You and my Hubby would get along well, he loves that stuff too...me not so much! LOL! Now give me a milk dud and I am the same way, but I guess that leaves me being the one who will need dentures after I pull all my teeth out thanks to carmel! ;)

Yummy! I love vanilla malts (shakes), but I never thought of getting malt powder to use at home and put on ice cream or (God forbid) make my OWN shakes. I might have to do that now. Ack, thanks, Justin. :)
