Hello, Good Pops.
I am pregnant. And in pregnancy I have developed many new cravings.
1. Waffle House – Luckily, the über-unhealthy Waffle House in Austin is 14 miles from my house. I crave their pecan waffles, smothered and covered hash browns, and their bacon, egg and cheese biscuit. Other than the gas money, it’s a minor investment of about $15.00 for Husbanks and me to eat there.
2. Sweets – I disliked sweets so much before! I always refused cake at birthday parties and was overcome with questions about what P90X/South Beach/Atkins craze I was a part of. Nope. Never been on a carb-less diet. Just didn’t crave sweets. Icing made me nauseous to think about.
Now I buy ice cream and bake cakes so I always have something sweet on hand. I take trips to Mighty Fine for milkshakes. Husbanks has commented that I am finally his dream woman.
3. Sweet with Spicy – This is where you come in, Good Pops. No one has nailed this craving quite like you. For a pregnant woman in the summer, nothing beats your Mango Chile popsicle. It cools you down in the heat, and gives you satisfaction for your sweet tooth while inviting a bite of spice. Thank you, Good Pops. And thank you Deirdre and Emilie for bringing the Mango Chile popsicle into my life.
If there is a “Pregnant Austin Woman” magazine, you should buy an ad and make the ad a picture of the Mango Chile popsicle. OR hand out samples at Babies ‘R’ Us. We will come flocking.
