Sweets. How do you eat yours?

I was messing about on twitter on my way home from work last night as I usually do.  I was eating some Fruit Pastilles at the time and thought I'd tweet about my habit for picking out the strawberry and blackcurrant ones and leaving them until last (I mean, you have to or the world will end...right?). 

To my amusement, it sparked a flurry of people owning up to all the weird and wonderful ways they like to eat their treats.  Here, in a nutshell, are all those 'guilty pleasures'...

I'm grateful to know that I am not the only one who loves to pick out the red and black sweets out of a pack and save them 'til last - phew, I'm not a weirdo!  @MrsMcGregor23 does the same thing as does @Hazyb84, who separates the colours and leaves the best until last, including with Skittles.  @LambskinHQ also does the same as me but with wine gums.  She also proudly proclaimed that fizzy cola bottles are "gurning heaven"!

@ChezFoti however, only eats strawberry Fruit Pastilles.  And @NotMyYearOff loves to "scoff all the good ones first".

But it's not just with jelly-based sweets that we have our weird unique mannerisms.  Take @BugBearBlog for example.  He likes to strip a Twix layer by layer.  @cafebebe can certainly relate to that.  She admits to sucking the chocolate off and crunching the rest whenever she eats a Daim or Crunchie bar.  @NewMumOnline agrees and also adds KitKats to the list of necessary sucking then crunching action.

This confession from @AnEssexWife has to be one of my favourites.  She will only eat smarties in pairs and they have to be of the same colour.  Okaaay...

Meanwhile, @Mrs_Nicholls shows her sadistic side by claiming to bite the heads of Jelly Babies.

Of course, none of this matters to @pirata_rosa.  He likes to "stick em in my mouth and chew or suck as hard as I can!"  Yes, that's a direct quote.

I also confessed to stripping jaffa cakes down to just their orangey goo and eating all the chocolate off a Milky Way bar before tucking into the nougat (now, is that pronounced 'noo-garr' or 'nugget'?) centre.

So, we've shown you ours and now it's time for you to show us yours.  How do you eat yours?


  1. lol - it's not sadistic - it's just the jelly baby law! Heads off so they can't scream, legs next so they can't run away, arms so they can't punch you and then the rest. I'm not really weird am I? OK OK *gets coat*

  2. Great post!! You've got me thinking of red and blacks again... And some cherry lips too. Mmmmm.
    I still think the best way is to eat the blacks, purples then red. And chuck the green ones, they are a bit wrong :)

  3. OMG, you've really put some serious thought into that *backs away slowly* ;-)

  4. Cherry lips, Fruit Salads, Opal Fruits/Starburst...I'm hungry again now

  5. Ooh jaffa cakes have to be stripped until the jelly is last! When i could dairy I also stripped the twixs and any other biscuit based goody. I love American hard gums and have to chuck the white ones out, never do they get eaten yeck!
    ps. It's noo-gar here ;)

  6. Love it! Aren't we all a bunch of nutters! ;) Thanks for the link! ;)


  7. Cool to see the conversation in full - thanks so much for the mention.
    Really enjoyed this post

  8. I used to love American hard gums but then I was eating a pack one day and two teeth got stuck in them and got pulled out!

  9. I love all these little quirks that people have. Glad to know I'm not the only one!

  10. Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for sharing your sweetie secrets :-)

  11. I've just installed iStripper, and now I can watch the sexiest virtual strippers getting naked on my taskbar.
