Does "Craving anything" make sense in English?

Hello! I'm not an English native speaker and I wanted to ask you English speakers for clarification.

To be more precise: I'm a 3D animation student and I was assigned to create an ad for a food delivery product. In my design I wanted to use this phrase like this:

"Craving anything? Just order [...]" 

I'm wondering if using this phrase does make sense or not. I thought of this because "anything" gives me a "bigger potential" vibe compared to "something", as in like "with this product, I can order and eat *anything/whatever* comes to mind".

But I'm not confident enough with English to know if this actually makes any sense at all.

Can you please help me understand?

    'Craving anything' doesn't make sense. Craving means intense longing/desiring. You can't intensely desire anything,it has to be specific. 

    'craving something' makes much better sense.
