Sweet vs. Salty… Where do you stand?

How about the heat!  We hit 32 degrees Celsius or 90 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday in sunny PEI.  Finally some sun as the weather has been sub par thus far this summer – it is nice to get a couple of days in a row without the wet stuff.  It is also beneficial for the house construction.

So I have been dying to ask this question ….

Sweet or Salty?

We all have certain foods that we gravitate towards when we are feeling down. Whether these foods include mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, candy or chocolate cake.  We call them “comfort foods” because their consumption evokes a comfortable and pleasurable state of mind. But why do certain foods comfort one person and not another?

Stereotypically, women crave sweets and men crave salty foods.

Are you a Salty Dog?

When it comes to snacks

  • You’re more likely to grab a bag of chips over a bag of cookies.
  • Your taste tends to be complex, sophisticated, and mature.
  • You tend to crave your favorite restaurant meal… or mom’s cooking.

Do you have a Sweet Tooth?

When it comes to snacks

  • You’re more likely to grab some candy than heat up a pizza.
  • Your tastes are simple and predictable. You are young at heart.
  • You tend to crave food you can just grab and eat.

So I need to know the answer!! I am attempting to set a zestycook.com record for the most comments ever, so if you are reading this – leave a comment about whether you are sweet or salty.

It is super easy so lets see if we can break 300 comments.

I hope you have a great Thursday and I will see you tomorrow for a nice sandwich idea for a potluck.  Can’t wait!

Take care
