When you think about snacks, what do you picture? The first thing that comes to mind is likely that unforgettable crunching sound of a crispy chip or pretzel. Year in and year out, chips and pretzels are always found among the top snack foods in America. Potato, corn, grains, veggies, and more, there are countless varieties of chips to suit every craving and palate.
Chips and pretzels are an essential snack for every occasion. Whether it's a part of a family picnic, birthday party, baby shower, or watching the big game, it's hard to imagine enjoying them without tortilla chips accompanied by salsa and guacamole. Don't forget about ripple chips with a sour cream dip or salt-and-vinegar chips with the unmistakable whiff that almost makes the eyes water. On the buffet table at a weekend barbecue is nearly always a brimming bowl. A poker game night with your friends might not seem quite complete without a bowl of pretzels making the rounds on the table along with the cards.
There's nothing quite like the sensation of a smooth pretzel that makes the first contact between your teeth, and the salt crystals crumbling with the heart-shaped knots or sticks. They are mouth-watering. Not to be outdone by chips in the flavor choice department, pretzels can be found in the traditional salt-encrusted variety, chocolate-covered, yogurt, and even peanut butter.
It's a matter of considerable debate about what makes snacks like chips and pretzels so popular and fun to eat. If you have ever picked up a piece at a gathering, or in front of the screen as you watch a favorite show or sport, chances are that crispy crunching sound makes it irresistible. Maybe it's the flavor magic that happens in your mouth where the ingredients combine to deliver the salty-sweet 'umami' taste. Whatever the reason, it is basically impossible to enjoy just one piece. You know this to be true.
