J'ai envie

Why is j'ai envie not followed by du or de la with food items, as is usually the case.

Hi Ann,

I believe that the only time you would use a partitive after 'avoir envie de' would be if a singular item of food was to follow -

J'ai envie d'une glace, d'une banane, d'une pomme

But,

j'ai envie de chocolat 

J'ai envie de frites 

But a good point!

J'ai envie
