Bogies

Nah, bogies must be classed as a food grin

Apple cores, pips and all.

Sweet wrappers e.g. the whole chewitt.

When pregnant last time I craved lightbulbs. I managed to resist.

This time thankfully it’s just piccalilli mixed in ice cream.

Ice cubes!

I know the noise is abhorrent but I can't resist

I once met someone who had made themselves very ill indeed by consuming several mothballs daily. shock They never realised they were poisonous ..... !!

I craved sponges when I was pregnant and ate dozens of them

I sometimes eat the tissue that I've used to wipe my tears during a weepy movie.

Like lottielady I eat the whole apple (and pear) because (I'm sure unlike lottielady) I'm too idle to walk to the bin.
Recently I ate some stuff I found in the bed (settle down!) wondering why I'd spilt coriander seeds there. Turned out my warmable wheat bag had a hole.

@HalfBloodPrincess lightbulbs! shock which bit?!

ScottyTotty2 Sun 03-Mar-19 13:28:17

the lightbulb eater is well.......illuminating, I had never thought of that

IHaveBrilloHair I was a pregnant sponge eater too!!! As if someone else did it!!

Wuddlingheights Sun 03-Mar-19 13:32:43

Am I the only person who didn’t know people ate non-food items at all?? Shocked (and intrigued!)....

Iamclearlyamug Sun 03-Mar-19 13:34:30

I used to eat toilet paper as a kid (unused obviously), and I also used to chew or suck on spoons for hours. Ate coal too.

Turns out I was iron deficient. Pica is sometimes trying to tell you something.

Clairaloulou the thin glass bit. Was all I could think about for a good few months. I wanted to crunch it. I tried ice but it just wasn’t cutting it.

IAmMeThisIsI Sun 03-Mar-19 13:40:06

The rubber top on my vape pen. I ruin them all but it's mega satisfying!

My friend eats pages out of books, goes to the charity shop for them and the browner the pages (e.g. the older the book) the tastier they are apparently 😬😷

I wonder how many beautiful, valuable antique books she's eaten? confused

Mind you, it gives a whole new meaning to "read and inwardly digest"...

* I craved sponges when I was pregnant and ate dozens of them*

Is that why you have Brillo hair pp? wink

I eat chalk. Has to be crayola white. I eat sticks and sticks and sticks of it blush
