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?
