When I was a nail biter I would eat the pieces of nail I chewed off. When I heard about pica I looked into it and was intrigued. I stopped when I started my blog. I also chew on those little plastic things they use to hold paper tags onto clothing. Oh and I'll chew plastic bottle caps or the little extra plastic stuck around the rim when you remove a cap until it's unrecognizable. Not sure of the last few are pica because I don't eat it all but maybe more of a oral fixation.

Pretty much all of that. Except I still bite/chew my nails. and the skin around my nails.

I used to eat paper. As in, I would eat a whole paper cup. I would also break open chicken bones and eat the marrow.

Yeah don't do that anymore.

I eat marrow too, and apple cores...banana peels too.

As a kid we went through a brief period where we weren't always well-supplied...we definitely ate lots of non-food things (and I still hoard food in "secret" stashes around my house). It's a hard habit to break!

lots of people eat marrow. It's a good source of vitamins or something like that, I hear.

It's gross, Denis eats it.

I obsessively chew things, anything plastic and it's in my mouth. :-/

When I was little my family joked they didn't know if it was me or the dogs chewing up Legos.

This. And ice. Though I try not to eat so much ice because it makes me have to pee like 3 or 4 times in a row, but I still do it.

Ice - I don't munch it but I suck it then munch it when it's softer.

Be prepared to be grossed out (I find myself saying that alot on here nowadays):

Skin picked off the bottom of my foot
Scabs
Thick finger nails or large pieces of trimming intact
Spoons/forks
Ends of pens
Plastic bits
Ear rests of reading glasses

I don't eat any of it - I just chew/gnaw at it then spit it out when done.

I've heard of overwhelming urges to consume dirt, glass, metal, sofa cushion, vaseline, condoms, wood chips, sawdust, fecal matter (both animal and human), urine, switchblade parts, nails, bolts, and paper. I just count my blessings that I crave none of the above mentioned...for now.

Scabs though?? I have a thing for them. Picking at them, squeezing at their sides, prying them off then nibbling at their crunchy edges...

I haven't hurt myself before intentionally to get a scab in order to chew it - but when I have had scabs...they don't stay on very long. Bleh - I know it's pretty sick but it's my semi pica/ocd.
