So, here's a question for you.

I've recently replaced my obsession with Rockets (the candy) with jelly beans in the hopes of getting a few less sores on my tongue and gums. And so, when I get a sugar craving (which happens a LOT with this pregnancy) I pop a few jellybeans in my mouth.

I'm the type of person who eats whatever jelly beans my hand scoops out of the container. I do save my favorite colours for last but I still eat all of them. But, I passionately HATE orange and green jellybeans. I basically chew them enough to be able to swallow them thinking all the while of my favorites (purple, red and black) that are soon to grace my tongue.

The question is: Why do I bother eating the orange and green ones? Why don't I just throw them out? It really makes no sense. Is it something so ingrained from my childhood about "eating everything on my plate"? I understand that in relation to veggies or healthy food but jellybeans? I mean, I'm not doing myself any favours by eating them.

'Kay, inane rambling done now.

Good question. And I have absolutely no idea why you do it either.

you need to do what I do: I pull all the colors I don't like out (black and orange), put them in a bowl so that my husband can eat them (he has no preference) and then chomp merrily away on your favorites. :)

My brother-in-law takes all the pink starbursts out of the bag and puts them in a bowl.

Hmmmmm. Very interesting.

I sort them too. And then eat them in decreasing order of enjoyment. Cos ... it'd be wrong to throw them out because that's wasteful, right ? And they always go in the same order ... green, orange, yellow, pink, blue, red, purple and then black ...
