You guys are gonna hate me. I had a huge list of things I wanted to eat the day my braces came off - starting with Fritos! I was debraced on Wednesday and I have to confess I've been too scared to eat anything on my list! My girlfriend gave me a box of toffee from a local awesome candy store and I can't even bring myself to open it. The Essix retainer takes a little getting used to and for me it's made my top teeth a little sore so I'm afraid of things like that candy apple from the fair I so desperately wanted. I think by next week I'll be better and I will work my way quickly through that list.

Popcorn for sure! I generally don't crave it or even eat it that much but now that I can't have it I am fiending for it lol! Agree with the others, it would have to be movie popcorn.

Caramel apple with nuts!!!!!!!!!!!

Snickers bar - I've done a Snickers ice cream bar (very carefully) but the real thing is chewier & gooier.

Chips & salsa - I eat these now, but you have to eat them so carefully that it's almost too annoying to be worth it.

FLOSSING!!!! haha I will be soooo happy to floss normally once these things are off. I will floss three times a day in celebration.

I want to bite into a caramel/chocolate nut covered candy apple! Also anything colorful that I've been avoiding to prevent from staining my clear braces.. such as red wine!. I still have a long ways to go though.... :T

I'm getting a big bag of cool ranch doritos, a snickers bar and skittles and of course go out to somewhere for dinner to celebrate and eat with a normal mouth for the first time in forever :HugeGrin: its still two more years before any of that happens but something to absolutely look forward to in the mean time!

Movie popcorn, or anything from Kernels!
Tootsie rolls
Caramel apple lollipop (anyone know the things I'm talking about?)

I've been eating nachos and potato chips the whole time without a problem. It is interesting to see what "bad" foods people do and don't avoid with braces.

Oh my goodness, I want the caramel apple with nuts and I want it NOWWWWW!!! I'd also die to have a snickers bar but due to my acid reflux, no chocolate indefinitely for me. :x

I've also been eating chips since I got braces (chewing gum, too), so nothing new there. I just realized that when I get my retainers, no gum chewing! Aaah, how will I survive?

Only 6 more days!!!! I'm going crazy waiting. I can't think about anything else. :crazy:
