Do You Ever Have a Completely Random Food Craving?

Yesterday, for the first time in I think 25 years, I had the biggest craving for chocolate milk. I could not get it out of my head. I tried to ignore it, tried to have something else, but despite the fact that I have not had it in over two decades, and was never the biggest fan of it anyway, and despite the fact that I really don't drink much milk generally, I actually went to the store in the evening, because I just could not get the craving out of my head.

Was it worth it? Actually, weirdly, yeah. I really enjoyed it. But, this morning I opened the fridge to see the bottle of the remainder in there and didn't even blink. Now the craving is completely gone and I can't explain that, either.

Have any of you ever had that happen? A) Have a strange craving for something that you haven't had in years or never really liked to begin with and / or B) Had a craving really strongly all of a sudden and then just as suddenly, have it go away?

Strangest thing....
