Default What's your vice?



I was stuffing myself with pistacho nuts earlier, thinking, "I've always had a thing for these". That and the huge olive oil fried patatas fritas/crisps (potato chips for those of you from the US) you get in Spain in giant bags or free with your beer. Can't resist them. If I open a packet at home they've gone in minutes, so I just don't buy them any more

What are your biggest vices?

Morros de cerdo, like pork scratchings, but just the noses. 4 € fo a strawberry punnet sized box, which I can eat in an evening. Also a certain soft sweet licorice that seems to be only obtainable outside Madrid. I have searched everywhere and can't find it. So, a rare treat.

Croissants, with a coffee of course. One without the other seems like a waste.

Love most Spanish food, but try as I might, I can't get to grips with aceitunas! Tried all shapes,sizes, fillings etc but they all make me wince! My wife ends up having to eat them all.
I'll certainly join you in a manzanilla though, as I'll pass on the churros!

Interesting that so far everyone is listing food. No gamblers or cigar smokers out there??

Because I don't do either, I'll stick with food also - I would walk through the desert for a Reese's Peanut Butter cup or Ben & Jerry's Phish Food.

Laziness followed by sweet things.

Buenas suerte en dejar de fumar. Yo deje de fumar hace 8 años. Usé "the patch". Eso me ayudö mucho. Pero cuidado que no comas tanto (especialmente queso). ¡Es facil engordarse cuando uno deje de fumar!

Gracias. Estoy usando "lozenges" ahora, pero trataré "the patch" si no tenga suerte. Temo que voy a quitar de café y vino también si vaya tener exito. ¡Todo eso y queso también...que arollo!
