I like to crunchy snack, but Teresa Widener really took that to a whole 'nother level: she likes to eat rocks.
“Mmm-hmm, yeah. They crunch on my teeth,” said Teresa Widener while eating her favorite snack.
Chocolate-covered pretzels? Everyone likes those.
“I like that it has an earthy flavor,” added Widener, who is 45 and lives in Bedford, Va.
French fries? Terra chips?
No, “crunch” and “earthy” aren’t culinary terms of art — they’re literal. Widener, a mother of two who works with special-needs children, eats rocks.
She doesn’t wash them. Sometimes she just sucks off the dirt. Other times, she takes a hammer and smacks them into bite-size pieces.
