What’s your vice? Is it alcohol? Drugs? Or do you turn to food as your vice? Does your vice make you lose control?
I’ve smoked cigarettes before, drank a lot in my 20s and in my 40s after I left my husband, and ate. I have eaten a lot. Whether I’m happy or sad or bored or depressed. Food has been my constant vice.
I’ve been pretty good lately in keeping my addiction in control. I’ve avoided the ice cream aisle religiously at work. I’ve stayed away from the chocolate aisle. Every now and then I will buy myself a chocolate bar, but it’s been few and far between. But tonight, for some reason, I was drawn to the ice cream.
I was picking up a few items that were on sale at work. For no reason at all, I went down the ice cream aisle. And there it was – my “crack” – the ice cream that beats all ice cream. It’s from a company called Panache and it’s name is Sweet and Salty Caramel Crunch. Hands down, the best ice cream I’ve ever had.
It’s a vanilla based ice cream, with caramel streaked throughout, sea salt for flavouring, and then you have little chocolate caramel crunchy bits stirred throughout. Seriously, it’s the best ice cream I’ve ever had.
What is your vice? Food? Alcohol? How do you control it? Is it okay to indulge every now and then?
