13. Aren't Cheetos

18. No, cheetos are the hard, dense crunchy ones
cheese puffs are the larger ones that have the density of water vapor.

19. Didn't realize there were such nuances.
What would you classify Cheetos as?

21. Not sure what you mean by "classify"
Junk food, I guess. Unless you are thinking of some other sub-classification or perhaps a lateral classification?

3. Of those? Potato chips. Salt and vinegar, specifically.
Or Pizza Pringles, which are simultaneously disgusting and delicious.

36. Yeah, I usually only eat 1/4 of the chips in the can.
I did eat a whole can once. I didn't have dinner that night. But in limited quantities they are scrumptious!

47. About the same ...
dehydrator is faster...tomatoes work better in the dehydrator than the oven though..and of course fruits are much faster

the whole fun is making different flavors....sweet..peppered...or other spices that you wouldn't get from a shop..for instance..I marinate slices of sirloin in orange, garlic and hot sauce and soy with a bit of brown sugar...and it tastes fabulous!

Of course, I just came back from Europe with 2 bags full of food, so maybe there is something to it. :-)

I'll be talking to one of my Portuguese clients tomorrow, so I'll check.

Edited on Mon Jun-28-04 05:00 PM by prolesunited
closely enough.

Look at the list, pretend you don't watch what you eat and chose. :-)

BTW, ice cream is my fave as well, but I don't do any of the low carb, fat free, etc. If I'm going to indulge, which I try to limit (funny how it often seems to be once a month timed to my cycle :P ), I go for the good stuff, either Ben and Jerry's or this mom-and-pop shop down the street that has real dairy soft serve.

50. OK Slink, That's just gross.
peanut butter/chocolate Fritos? ewww.

I haven't liked Fritos since college. A former roommate had stinky feet that smelled exactly like Fritos, and it totally ruined the "Frito experience" for me.

43. Nachos and "stinky cheese".
yeah, I made the stinky cheese out of Velveeta and Monterey Jack, with burning hot salsa and chili. Trust me, it's good. (Velveeta "cheese-food" notwithstanding) For the bold, I'll also add some Dave's Insanity Sauce and diced habanero peppers.

I'll put my "stinky cheese" up against anyone else's. It's the tequila of snacks: Good idea at the time, but you'll regret it later.

64. HERE'S WHAT YOUR CHOICES REVEAL!
Edited on Mon Jun-28-04 06:02 PM by prolesunited
This is the true meaning of all that junk food you eat:

Pretzels mean you're a flirt and you're very lively and energetic.

Cheese curls mean you have great integrity and maintain a high moral ground.

Potato chips mean you are aggressive, a real go-getter who will not take no for an answer.

Tortilla chips mean you're a perfectionist. An "A" is not good enough for you. It has to be an "A+."

Beef jerky means you're the life of the party. You're outgoing and gregarious.


It is based on this article:
Junk Food You Eat Reveals Your Personality
If I eat pretzels, does that really mean I'm a flirt? Dr. Alan Hirsch from the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago says so. He conducts research into a branch of psychology called "hedonics," which deals with pleasant and unpleasant feelings.
http://channels.netscape.com/ns/homerealestate/package....


So, do your choices match with your personality? In some cases, I would say it is spot on.

On edit: And some people's responses simply demonstrate that they don't read the question before they post. :P
