Consider some desirable thing X.

What I want to mean: I can't get enough of X,

How I want to say it: X is <foobar>

Is there any word for <foobar>?

The closest word that I know is "irresistible". But I have a limited vocabulary, and probably there is a better word out there.

  • Addicting or addictive? Jul 11, 2017 at 17:48
  • @YosefBaskin Well, addictive is a word with a strong meaning that often overshadows it's other possible meanings. Maybe something else?

    Maybe not exactly what you're looking for, but how about moreish (causing a desire for more)? Jul 11, 2017 at 18:08
  • @FumbleFingers Yeah, moreish is great - but I think it is mainly appropriate in the food context. I'm looking for something more general.
