This cookbook is a collection of the craziest things pregnant women crave. Each dish has been painstakingly recreated, tasted and reviewed by us so you don't have to.
Thank you to all the brave women who provided the recipes.
Make them at your own risk.
Here are just 9 of the crazy pregnancy cravings featured in the book. For the other 61, along with the recipes, reviews and stories about the women who craved them, buy Pickles and Ice cream here.
The only thing better than chocolate and mint together is having a cookie that brushes your teeth for you.
BACON MARS BAR® BURGER
It’s pretty crazy, but the good kind.
Not the one that runs after you in a mask with a chain saw.
The head tastes like garlicky egg and the rest tastes like nothing. All in all, the experience isn’t terrible. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for your breath afterward.
POPCORN ON A BED OF SAUERKRAUT
It’s not any worse than sauerkraut by itself.
SAUSAGE AND JAM
We had high hopes for this one. So you could say, this iswhat disappointment tastes like.
The perfect birthday cake for your enemies.
The butter takes the delicate freshness of the watermelon to new heights . . . and then pushes it off them, completely annihilating any trace of it.
ORANGE SLICES WITH TOMATO SAUCE GLAZE
The true evil in this dish is that it catches you unaware. Who doesn’t like oranges? Who doesn’t like ketchup? What harm could there be in putting them together? Why have I lost the will to live
MEDLEY OF SOAPS
Do not try this. Ever. Ignoring this warning isn’t like ignoring the expiration date on a yogurt. It’s like ignoring the warning of the lifeguard on beach who tells you not to enter the shark-infested waters.
Make the pregnancy cravings yourself!
(Or actually, rather don’t)
