Are you sweet or salty? Which is your favorite snack, some sweet chocolate or something salty like chips, pretzels, popcorn?

Is this sweet tasting at all? I am a sweet freak. I've never been a fan of Chex mix but if it's sweet well.... HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Well when I want a snack it really depends on what I am in the mood of eating. I don't really have a preference. It could be a fruit, peanuts, or anything. I don't really care if it's sweet or salty it just depends on what on what I want at that moment.

Hi ayumitakashi, so you have a variety of snacks that you like, sound good. I can see with all these comments that the sweet chocolate lovers are in the lead. Thanks for your response.

Better late than never:) I guess I'll have to say I'm salty. I have popcorn & pretzels frequently. Some nights popcorn is my dinner. However, I do go through times that I crave Bryers Ice Cream (peach or cherry vanilla or sometimes chocolate or vanilla) & every now & then I want a chocolate bar. Of course after eatin the sweets, I immediately pop some popcorn to kill the sweet taste in my mouth. So if I have to chose one or the other, I think salty suits best. I try & stay away from pretzels. Similar to potato chips, I can't eat just one. I tend to eat the whole bag (NOT GOOD...but I do enjoy)

I know that (not able to eat just one) feeling. Even have one of those New York big soft hot pretzels? Ohhh so good!

IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT!!! You made me start cravin pretzels again. So I went to the store yesterday & bought 3 bags of the stick pretzels (yes they were on sale on a 3 for whatever). When I went by the frozen food aisle, they had a box of NY style soft pretzels that you bake yourself. I'm sure they're NOT as good as the "real deal" but it was pretty dayum good. I did manage to refrain from eatin all 6. Now I'n fightin openin the bag of regular (non-NY style) pretzels. Please don't ask anymore food questions!!!

I love chocolate and will eat it on a regular basis. Right now my favorite chocolate fix is eating Reese's Mini Peanutbutter cups. Weight is not a major issue for me so I can pig out whenever I feel like it. There are other times I love to munch on potato chips with ranch dressing. This is what I eat when my tastebuds want salt. Once in a great while I will eat popcorn and dip it in mustard. It's something I've done for years and all started way back when I was in high school. It was a fad at the time.

I have tried the popcorn with mustard (hmmmm good) but I have never tried the chips with ranch dressing, thanks for the good idea, I want to try it now. Sounds delicious.

I'm avoiding sweets since our family tree has a strong history of diabetes. I'd actually prefer salty foods... But not too salty. Maybe chips or nuts.

That is a good idea, everyone needs to be careful of overdoing the sweets. Thanks for your reply.

It depends, if I have just eaten a meal then I like to have a sweet snack and if I have not eaten a meal then I like a salty snack.

Many people like something sweet after a meal, kind of completes the whole meal. LOL I love your avatar.

While I do love lots of sweet things, like chocolate, doughnuts and liquorice, my real weakness is for salty snacks. My favourite salty snacks are crisps (chips), olives, houmus and pitta, tortilla chips and popcorn, although I do like to get a mixture of sweet and salty popcorn when I go to the cinema, then you get the best of both worlds :)

Actually at the cinema here you can choose between salty or sugary popcorn, and I normally ask for a mixture of the two. I love the salty and the sweet flavours together.

I'm a sweets fan. The only chip type things I really ever go for are Cheetos (oh I love those! LOL) and love nachos and cheese. Otherwise I'd probably never or rarely even buy chips if it weren't for my kids. Now sweets.... oh I have a love/hate relationship there! LOL But how else can a girl keep her girly curves? LOL

Sweets for the sweet. Chocolate is ok right - as long as you wash it down with a nice cold diet drink - huh? Hahaha

Both..LOL. Really depends on my mood. After my dinner for instance I love to have something sweet like ice cream and usually with chocolate, like Neopolitan type where I can get vanilla, strawberry and chocolate. Then while I watch TV late at night, I grab for a bag of popcorn, so something a bit salty. Sometimes though as a snack I'll fix myself a very small salad...to at least suggest in my mind I'm eating something a lot healthier..hehe

I much prefer to munch on a bag of crisps, or as my American friends call them chips! Don't get me wrong I love sweet stuff, like chocolate but when I am on the computer and I am feeling peckish then I like a bag of crisps. I don't like popcorn or pretzels. Give me a bag of crisps or nuts. I also like to snack on fruit as well like bananas which are great for the brain so they say, mind you chocolate is good for depression but bad on the hips LOL!

I find the words used for different things between UK and US fascinating, like we use a lift, you use an elevator, we use nappies you use diapers and the list goes on. We still call french fries french fries or chips. Another favourite is sweets for us, candy for you!

I like snacks and I enjoy both salty and sweet snacks. But perhaps I like salty snacks like potato chips much more. But I know it's not a healthy snack, so I try to eat it less. I love China

I love both! I love foods that have extreme taste of salt and sugar, that is, salty and sweet. I don't know why but I like to eat both kinds of foods and even combining them when eating! In our country, we have this dish that is a combination of salty and sweet taste, it is a fried fish with sweet sauce. When I am in front of my computer, I have bars of chicolate, a bags of potato chips, a bag of popcorn or combination of them, as my snacks. But I eat first the salty ones and eat the chocolate after.

This sounds good, what is the name of this fried fish with sweet sauce because I have a Philippine restaurant near where I live. I would like to try it.

I'm addicted to salty snacks. I can eat a large popcorn at the cinema, all by myself! It's not good is it? I like sweet treats from time to time, but usually only at the peak of my monthly hormonal wave when I temporarily become the chocoholic!

i love having some sweet foods for my snack or sometimes it also depends. if i'm gonna eat something sweet, you would see me eating some pretzels and other sweet stuffs while if i don't feel like eating some sweet foods, you'll see me eating some chips that are cheese flavored. i love cheese that's why
