I'm with you Stephanie on the diet drinks. My favorites are Coke Zero and Diet Dr. Pepper. I have to have them everyday. I've never been much on the mints but I do love hard cinnamon candies and have been known to go through a whole bag by myself in a week. Hope you're having a great trip!

Pat and Meka said...

I love love love peanut butter on my pancakes/waffles with my syrup! Taste like reese peanutbutter cups...oh yum!

RxDrMom said...

My addictions are Coke Zero and chips or pretzels, but for something odd...this is NOT an addiction, but really is something I like, and at least some of my kids honestly like it too (don't make horrible faces until you try it!): green peas with cheese (Velveeta)- seriously, try it!: canned green peas (LeSeur are the best)-drain out most of the water, throw in a couple of chunks of Velveeta and heat it until the cheese melts...yum!

Gina Vannita Johnson said...

Charms Blow Pops is one of my all time favorite things to eat ;)

AmyO said...

OMG, im addicted to "orange" tic tacs. My husband thought i was crazy and now he eats them all time. And i eat them just like you do, i will pour half the container in my mouth and chew them all. I have empty containers everywhere.

mcgeechs said...

I love my Diet Dr. Pepper the most. But, an odd thing I like, mostly I eat it at Thanksgiving is a combination of foods. I like cole slaw and cranberry sauce mixed together. Yum. Thanks for the fun video. jeannett_mcgee@comcast.net

ColleenF said...

Trident Splash Peppermint swirl gum. You can't find it just anywhere so when I find it, I buy it by the boxful, like 20 packs! Also I love Starbucks Mocha Frappacinos and have to have a couple a day!

Elisabeth said...

You can keep brads in your empty tic tac boxes

Betty said...

hot tamales!
But something strange I eat are Rocky Mountain oysters....don't ask it will gross you out.

Tami in Texas said...

Other than my obsession with scrapbooking and stamping. I guess the weirdest thing I like to eat is BBQ sauce on potato salad. Call it a southern thing! Hope you are having a great time in South Africa.

pinkyxoxo said...

I love dunking mcdonalds french fries in vanilla milk shakes. Yum! My friends/family say i'm strange because I drink no soda and no coffee.

Diana aka *Doodles* said...

As for drinks, I have to have my Lemon Berry Slush from Sonic, and for something strange I eat...well, not sure if it's strange, but I love Ranch on my fried fish instead of tartar sauce. I can't eat fried fish without ranch to dip it in, yum!!!

Hope you're enjoying your trip!

Hugs,
Diana

Jan said...

I love to put potato chips on my tuna sandwich...yummy crunchy/salty goodness :)

Sandi said...

Stephanie you are so so funny I go on your page at least once a day ( Oh My Gosh maybe that is my addiction) haha and every time i do my kids run over and watch with me just to see whats new with you. Oh by the way not in a wacky sort of way. hope your having fun :)

Annie said...

I used to store my little beads/embellishments in those tic/tac containers, but your container looks a lot bigger than mine. Are those JUMBO size? But one of my odd/obsession food is 'red vinegar', when i go to a restaurant to eat and it requires me to dip vinegar, I will used up 1/2 to 3/4 of their bottle. LOL! Sometimes I will also sip on vinegar too. And it's only the red vinegar, not the white one. But anyways, hope you have a wonderful fun trip.

Carol's Place said...

I love mustard on my sloppy joes! Not sure if that odd but I like it. I also like bbq sauce on my coleslaw!!

Renie said...

Something weird I like to eat...hmmm...A sandwich made with a Sweet onion with butter and salt on it. Tastes gooood :) Also a peanut butter and dill pickle sandwich is good too!! Safe journey Stephanie!!
I must admit..I never thought about velveeta and green beans :) But, Rocky Mountain oysters~~uhuh..nope not gonna try that! :) heh heh

OCCricut said...

YOU ROCK!! There are DEFINITELY worse addictions than white Tic Tacs!!! I can find about five empty boxes of Altoids in my car pocket. I, too, am looking for some way to alter them....hmmmm.
Diet Dr Pepper is one of my addictions.

Michelle said...

Ranch, Ranch and more Ranch.. you name it I put Ranch on it! Sandwiches, pizza, pretzels, I use it as a dip for chips! Safe travels my friend and thanks for sharing ;0)

Julia Nowosielska said...

So much fun to see that I am not alone with my own little idiosyncrasy. I love, love, love breakfast cereals... Capt'n Crunch, Alpha Bits, Corn Pops, Froot Loops.... yummy. That's why I don't buy them because if I did I would just eat the whole box until it was gone; my waistline doesn't need breakfast cereal! LOL

marla said...

Stephanie you always make me laugh. I love white Altoid mints and I too love peanut butter on my pancakes. Thanks for a good laugh!!

Angie said...

You're so funny. Tic tacs arent too bad. Plus you end up with minty fresh breath. I love ranch dressing. If that dressing is close by, I'll find something to dip it in!

JoAnn said...

My entire family loves sugar on cottage cheese, peanut butter on pancakes and ranch dressing on french fries. Yummo

LA said...

I am addicted to watching your video's every night. You have a sparkle that makes me smile. Your videos are entertaining, fun and always leaves such a good feeling. I always wait for the new ones to come out!!

kathy s said...

I hope your enjoying South Africa Stephanie-I use the bigger Tic Tac containers to store sequins and small embellishments they are great because they stack easy and take up minimal space. A couple of my food/snacks are potato chips- the packet type not hot ones- any flavour with tomato sauce(ketchup),or peanut butter and honey (together) on toast - they are probably two of the more normal things- hubby likes cheese and jam(jelly) on toast or in sandwiches

Carol Hardie said...

OMG........you are a hoot Stephanie. I have two food addictions, one is Original Trident gum, always have to have it all day long and the other is Thin Crisp Triscuits. My family is looking for a 12 step program for me. My daughters have the oddest addiction of Kit Kat candy bars covered with the canned spray cheese. Now, that is gross even if they are my children. Thanks for the video...made me laugh out loud.

myownplace said...

odd things I eat-don't tell anyone-sugar on macaroni and cheese , and dill pickles w chocolate cake.

Villa said...

Stephanie! Your video is hilarious!If soda & Tic Tac's are your only sins, you're guaranteed a spot in heaven! I love Dill Pickle flavoured chips. I only get them as an occasional treat because I'd eat the whole bag in one sitting!Have a safe trip!!

myownplace said...

oh, and Steph, look what i found on google! Most re-purposing ideas were for some kind of storage, but this is a cute idea for a tiny gift. And what if you used them as favors for a party or as wedding favors filled with candy (M&Ms?) in colors to co-ordinate with the bridal party?

scrapbaby said...

lol I just love how you ended it - "Welcome to the show!" I would say that I'm obssessed with eating grapes. I always have them in my refridgerator and I eat at least one or two everytime I go in there...

sarah said...

OMG!! i thought i was the only with tic tac~~ always with me/car/desk/etc..luv it..:)

Beth Devitt said...

I'll let you in on a secret. We're all obessive about something. I always say that we should start CAA Craft Addict Club. The problem we'd probably turn it into a big scrap fest, right? Love me love my craft addiction, that's what I say!

Joyce said...

I love Nerds candy. I buy the big boxes like you can get at the movie theaters and I eat them all day long at work. I usually get from Walgreen's for a buck so that's a good deal! People at work tell me I'm such a nerd!! hahaha....so what's wrong with that?? lol

CLHAJNAL said...

My husband thinks that I am weird when I dip my steamed artichokes in mayonnaise....yum!

P.S. We saw a video with you demonstrating Sizzix in our local Joann's today...my 10 yr old son recognized you before me...OMG!!

Have fun in South Africa!

mariangel said...

i love to eat raw onions with salt like apples.

Lilie said...

I love vanilla cake with chocolate frosting. My favorite always :).

Cheri's Craft Corner said...

I love a nice thick PB&J sandwich topped with tons of bread n' butter pickles!
Enjoy Africa... so jealous.. its my dream trip... my heaven will be the African Jungles and open plains full of lions, giraffes, elephants, etc...
Hugs and safety!

Carin said...

Smint and White Tic Tac (for real), not as much as you, but the Smint, yummmm. And that is the Smint with a new flavour. I believe it's eucalyptus.
But if this is our worst addiction, then so be it.

Jennie said...

I love those chocolate covered marshmallow bunnies in the freezer. Only get them once a year but try to stock up a bit to last a little longer. Enjoy Africa!! Would love to go there one day :)

eva said...

i love DR.Pepper first thing in the morning and all day long til I go to bed.

i always have in my purse ice breaker sours green apple and watermelon... I eat them too... Kids at church know I have the mints and the gum in my purse always!

Hannah's Stampin' Nana said...

I too am a diet coke addicted or any diet brown soda for that matter. As far as "odd" goes.. it is definitely mu doggies treats. Yep , you read that right. We have these all nature peanut better or cheese treats, and everytime I give one to the girls I eat one, could be up to 6-8 a day. I love them :-) Enjoy your trip, hope to see lots of pictures

Bonnie Brown said...

My daily obsession is chewing Stride Winterblue gum. I chew it because than I don't think about what to eat!!! I absolutely LOVE to eat grahams dunked in milk!! I can eat a whole cellophane pack of them. So I have to limit myself by taking 3 out and putting the rest away!! YUMMO!!

Joyce said...

Loved the video!! All I could think of was how people around you in church can hear the 'crunch, crunch, crunch' of TicTacs!! You are so funny and down to Earth.
I have a similar habit with Mementos Cinnamon candies...they are soft and can be chewed! :)

Chris D. said...

LOL! You are so funny! Don't ever change! I love to dip animal crackers into frosting and eat them that way! Ummmm, yummy! Thanks for the chance to win!

Lizscraps said...

it's not an addictive type of like but I do enjoy eating frozen fruit (unthawed) they are like eating real chuckles candies :) and when in Spain during the summer, tiny snails cooked in a tomato based sauce -- delish.

Kyla Norris said...

I am addicted to mayonnaise and french fries! whenever we go out and there's fries with the meal I have to ask for a side of mayo, I can't eat them otherwise...sounds gross but it's delicious! LOL

Patty S. said...

I have to have plain M&M's and Hershey's Kisses in the house at ALL times. I don't eat them everyday, sometimes going a whole week, but knowing they are there is a comfort for me!

Mel- said...

Now we know why you have so much energy....

My friends think it's odd that I have popcorn (with real butter and Himalayan Pink salt) and a chocolate martini for dinner at least once a week... I don't think that's odd at all...

CRAZY4CHRIST said...

My mom always has white tic tacs in her purse!! You could use those containers for storing eyelets in and maybe decorate them up a bit!!!I don't really eat anything weird, the only thing i can think of is cucumber and cheese whiz sandwiches. Thanks for the chance to win!! Have a great trip.

Helen said...

My addiction is 'Gardetto's Special Request Roasted Garlic Rye Chips'. They are to die for. I have to limit myself to 2 bags a week. I could eat a bag a day easy. And my newest addition is my new puppie 'Winnie'. She is a mixed terrier rescue about 9 months old. We've had her for a little over 2 months. What a kick she is. Love your videos and especially your stamps.
hugs
helen

Donna Phelan said...

Egadz Girl! :) I hope those are sugar free, cuz all that sugar may not be good for your pretty white teeth! :) I love Crystal Light To Go Packets......BUT I can only use one packet in 3, 20 ounce bottles of water. Yup, weird! But a box lasts me a long time!

middniteblu said...

I make my own sweet (german type) cooking chocolate and keep itin the fridge. I can make it as sweet or bitter as I want to. I got it years ago from a hersheys leaflet. 4 tablespoons cocoa, 4 2/3 tablespoons sugar and 2 2/3 tablespoons shortening. It only takes a small amount to fulfill the need of a great chocolate craving :)

blu_jean_girl said...

That cracks me up! Ok, my weird food obsession. When I was a kid/teenager my Mom canned tomatoes, one year in like mid January I decided I wanted tomatoes on toast. So I would toast a couple of pieces of wheat bread, plop on some home canned tomatoes and sprinkle on garlic salt...and that's what I ate for breakfast and lunch for like the ENTIRE winter. Until we ran out of canned tomatoes! lol :)

Cindi said...

I love frozen grapes!! if you haven't tried them yet, throw some in your freezer for a couple hours and try them
:)

Rabbit June Scraps said...

I have to post my daughters. When she was little she wouldn't eat anything green. We finally got her to eat green beans by treating them like french fries and letting her dip them in ketchup. For me it is butter on saltine cracker's and ranch on anything not sweet.

brwneydgrl8 said...

Stepanie, you are so funny. Your video was great. I love smarties candy. They are tart and sweet all at the same time!!! I can't get enough of them.

lgutierrez1974 said...

Red Licorice is my vice when scrapbooking.

Maryyyy said...

You must be a joy to sit next to in church chompping on tictacs...lol....My weird food is burnt popcorn...it stinks the house up but I love it...lol

Allison said...

I love peanut butter...my favorite is on waffles with strawberries on top.
I also love ketchup and could eat it on just about anything but my favorite is to dip my grilled cheese in it!

Marina said...

I absolutely love to dunk my McDonald's french fries in the Tartar sauce from the Filet-O-Fish sandwich!! Yummy!!!

nursey76 said...

Cooeee from Down Under Stephanie.....I have to say i am addicted to iced coffee, not normal coffee i tell you but iced iced iced coffee. I have to say if i dont have a glass a day i lose the plot a little, thats my sin. Infact i am sipping one now as i type this, (hang my head in shame.)
I use left over tic tac containers for storage for little beads or embellishments I use in my card making.
Have a great time in SA cant wait to see the pictures.

kbgirlygirl said...

I like to dip potato chips into chocolate ice cream....I know it is weird....LOL but it is oh so good!

Cathy said...

I would love to say I do not have an addiction to anything weird, but I love sugar on my macaroni. I am also a chocoholic, but that is not weird, just bad for skinny jeans,lol

Bev Gerard said...

MUST have my Crystal Light packets "Green Tea Peach Mango" on a daily basis. (Found it in my efforts to quit diet sodas! ha)

Non-daily but still a "love" is smooth peanut butter atop vanilla ice cream ...... mmmmmmmmmmm!

~Bev

Paper Heart said...

I put mustard on most everything!

Melanie Akey, Realtor said...

I love to eat...get ready for it...dill pickle flavored sunflower seeds. I try to eat them slowly since nuts are so high in calories but I just love them!!

Jacynthe said...

I love hot dogs with mustard and lettuce. No ketchup for me :)

LaurieJane said...

I love your life with Stephanie videos!!!

My addiction is Mirale whip. Bread with just Miracle whip = yum! or add onion - my other addiction.

maigarcia said...

I love meatloaf with tomatoes!

linda m said...

One of my favorite odd things to eat ever since I can remember is white bread with real butter and brown sugar on it. Mmmm, mmmm! It always reminds me of my grandma Nellie, since she always made them for me when we would visit at lunch time! It also tastes good on saltine crackers, too.
Praying for your safe return :)

lanejoy1 said...

I love mayo. I put it on everything...corn on the cob, scrambled eggs, all sandwiches, etc. Then my second thing is crushed ice. I always and I mean always have a cup of crushed ice with me.

Kaye said...

Homemade applesauce on toast! My family thinks I'm nuts. Guess it started when my grandma would make homemade applesauce and we would have it warm on toast.

mgpm said...

I like to have fruit (peaches, fruit cocktail, or--my favorite---mandarin oranges) with sour cream. Recently I started with plain greek yogurt and fruit and that's almost as good. :) I don't drink coffee or diet drinks at all. I do like soda but only have it when I go out to eat. But I HAVE to have ICED TEA every day. I have to make it myself, too--I don't like it too sweet (like Brisk in a can is way too sweet for me).

Mary said...

I love the chill exotic cherry tic tacs. Hope you have a wonderful time and a safe trip home.

Katen said...

I love Mrs Dash Extra spicy with almost everything. Good stuff. I always carry a bottle in my purse incase I am out to eat and the food needs some added spice. I also love your videos and watch them all the time, even more than once.

AnnV said...

Stephanie, That is the cutest video...you are such a hoot. It has been so much fun to read everyone's strange addictions...I thought I was the only person who liked peanut butter on pancakes...try crunchy peanut butter on waffles. My latest addiction while I try to stop smoking is Gobstoppers Jaw Breakers...and I crunch them also. I am also addicted to iced tea made with two cups of Splenda per gallon of tea...really sweet. ANd who can resist a peanut butter, mayo and banana sandwich...yummy!!!! Have a great trip, Steph!!!

Tracey said...

I love that you share all of your craziness with us!!

I don't know what my crazy thing to eat is. I think mine is not what I eat but how I eat it. I like to eat things in even numbers so like if I have cookies it has to be 2 or 4 (not 1 or 3 - that totally throws me off). Now, how is that for a crazy quirk?!?!?! ;)

Amy said...

When we grill out, I love putting baked beans on my potato chips.

RoseMarie said...

Nutella hazelnut spread, lots of spoonfuls, and cheese right after it... Yum!

carchin said...

I love tomato and mayo sandwiches!! Also a strange thing I eat that I learned from my grandmother is plain lettuce with mayo.
