Twizzlers

I have just read the reason for my addiction to Twizzlers - especially back when I was depressed. I used to eat them by the pound.

Turns out sugar tuns to carbs, which contain tryptophans, an amino acid that triggers serotonin - the "Happy" neurotransmitter. They make me happy, literally.

That's your random fact for the day.

I love food in general like you probably loved twizzlers. Is this really the reason why? Maybe that's why I'm pretty much always happy. Haha.
