Craving for a certain type of food is believed to be due to a desire to satisfy oneself with oral stimulation. In psychological terms , it is called 'Oral Fixation'. It is said to be a part of a personality that feels deprived in some way and tries to overcome this deprivation by oral stimulation.
'Oral Fixation' is a part of Freud's personality theories - many of these theories are disputed now.
