If I have a cold I want chicken soup and saltine crackers.  And a Sprite or ginger ale.

If it's a cold I also want chicken noodle soup and usually either Lipton or Mrs. Grass's.  Saltine crackers and ginger ale.

Not sure if Vernor's is nation-wide but just in case it isn't, Vernor's is a Ginger Ale, y'all .... and I hate it.  I am just not fond of ginger at all... During my last chemo session, I was feeling really nauseated (each session gets worse) and they gave me a ginger lozenge to calm my stomach... I think it made me feel worse!

I'm not sure if it's because they gave it to me when I had my tonsils out and I threw it up, but I just do not care for it at all.  If I'm dying of thirst, maybe I will take a sip or two, but that's about it.... because when you burp up or throw up Vernors... it is gross!  I think I feel about Vernors the way Tracy feels about onions.. lol.

When I'm sick, I crave, of all things....

Totino's Pepperoni Pizza Rolls. 

Sometimes I want (my own) homemade vegetable soup with lots of pepper, sometimes I want Ruffles potato chips... and either hot tea sweetened with Splenda or iced tea sweetened with Splenda.  I am strange... i crave none of the normal stuff normal people crave when they're sick.

Vernor's has been national since the 80's and now bottled by Pepsi.  (I looked it up.)  We've had it here for a long time.  I like it.

I have never had a pizza roll.   They look gross to me.  And if I want pizza flavor, I'll eat a pizza.    

Those sure aren't traditional sick foods, Daisy.  Veggie soup would not be kind to my tummy if I was sick.

It has to be chicken noodle soup. True comfort food
