When you're ever up at weird hours (say, from 1:00-4:00 A.M. especially) do you ever get really odd cravings for stuff for no real reason, strong enough to make you go find some place that's actually open just to have them right now ?

I can recall a few instances of just having to have a 2 liter of orange soda, for no particular reason, at 4:00 A.M. Right now, I really want some chocolate milk, and some wontons. I can remember several occasions where I just had to have Sour Warheads hard candy at 2:00. I mean, most places don't even sell those around here any more, so where am I gonna get them at 2:00 A.M.?

And then you bother to go off in the dead of night to the nearest convenience store or Wal-Mart just for such nonsense. Candy, pretzels, drinks, shakes, after-midnight sesame chicken, doesn't matter; you're on a mission!

That's not even considering what it must be like for stoners who get the munchies, since I've never used drugs.

So, anyway, (slightly) TL; DR, what do you crave and hunt down in the middle of the night?

Yes, this happens to me too! But it's almost always for sweet stuff, like cake or cookies. If there's nothing around, which there usually isn't--we don't keep a lot of junk food around, I get super irritated. Then again, I have low blood sugar and irritability is a side effect of that...

Sweets. Specially chocolates or cakes. And coffee.

Candy, cookies, cakes, ice-cream. Anything sweet is my guilty pleasure at night.

Although what I do is chug down glasses of ice cold water and distract myself with anything to get rid of the cravings. I know I'll regret eating them when I wake up.

If I could sleep through a sugar rush without getting too many dreams I'd probably eat sweets during cold nights.

I don't usually crave for food. There was a time I almost started eating for pleasure, but even that faded away. Now I just eat for the energy and to keep myself from getting skinny. Which is why my diet is bending more and more towards healthy eating.

I always crave popcorn at night. I tried eating popcorn during the morning and I couldn't continue after a few bites. There's just something about eating popcorn in the dark that makes it taste much more yummy. I've been on those 2AM, 5AM missions on getting popcorn. I'm so lucky the grocery store is 2 blocks away and is open 24/7. Either than that I don't really crave anything at night. I crave sunflower seeds ALL the time @_@ I'm a sunflower seed junkie.

I used to crave a lot of things around the clock when I ate .. unhealthily. It became especially pronounced in the early morning. I think the reason why is because the body begins to shut down for the night, alongside self-control, as it were. Self control that normally keeps cravings at bay.

These days the one thing I'll occasionally wake up for very late in the morning is water. A straight up craving I can't exlain in spite of not being dehydrated. Just imagine a zombie shambling through the pitch dark moaning "Mizuuuuuu .. " and you've got the right image in mind.

White Castles after a night of drinking really hit the spot.
