It's been a few months now, so I'm likely due to become tired of them soon. I'll eventually get to the point where I'll think "I will just finish this last package, and then not buy them again for a few months" ---- and at the very moment I'm thinking that, my ever-so-helpful husband will be at the store grabbing a few extra packages because he "noticed I was getting low".

Obsession? I really don't have one. There are things I prefer - like homemade soups - this time of year, but I do not obsess about them.
