Food. It's kind of a big deal. Such a big deal, as a matter of fact, that we can't live without it. But, know what? Even if we could live without it, we wouldn't want to. Food gives life flavor, and we mean that both literally and figuratively. We mean, yeah, obviously there are plenty of other enjoyable things in life, like reading and playing video games and binge-watching TV shows, but as fun as all of that stuff is, none of it in any way acts as a decent substitute for the thrilling act that is eating.
From snacks to meals to desserts, there are plenty of opportunities to chow down on something delicious, but here's the thing. What's delicious for one person may not be for another. We've all got our own preferences when it comes to cuisine, which means we've all got our own hard opinions about what's good and what isn't. Sometimes, it's easy to tell what we would rather eat and what we would rather not. But other times, the decision making process? Well, it ain't so easy. Put those taste buds to the test! Play this food round of "This or That", and we'll reveal everyone's foodie score!
Regular Potato Chips or Ruffles?
Everybody loves regular potato chips, and we would wager a guess that everybody loves chips with ridges, too. After all, they make scooping up a whole lot of dip much easier, and that's what we're all about. Anyway, when it gets down to it, which of these two options would you prefer to have?
Spaghetti or Lasagna?
Both spaghetti and lasagna contain the same basic ingredients—well, for the most part, anyway. There's pasta, there's tomato sauce and cheese, there's usually some meat. But even though they both share much of the same stuff, the tastes of these two dishes are COMPLETELY different! Sure, they both taste great with a side of garlic bread, but which one to you like best?
Cake or Pie?
No birthday party would be complete without a nice, big cake. All that fluffy deliciousness topped with all that rich, sugary icing. How could you possibly resist that?! But, then again, when you want a slice of pie, no amount of cake will suffice. With plenty of fruit swimming around in a rich, sweet syrup, nestled between two buttery, flaky crusts, pie is tough to beat.
Coffee or Tea?
Maybe some people have enough natural energy to power through the day, but we sure don't. We've got to have a hot mug full of something in the morning to wake us up. A steaming cup of tea is just the ticket when it comes to to warming ourselves up, but a strong cup of coffee is a real eye opener. Which do you prefer?
Chocolate Chip or Sugar Cookies?
We hear the word "cookie" and we're immediately excited, whether that cookie is gingerbread, peanut butter or even oatmeal raisin. We're honestly just happy there will be cookies. But even so, we've still all got our druthers, so if you had to pick between one or the other, which of the following would you spring for, a chocolate chip cookie or a sugar cookie?
Pancakes or Waffles?
Pancakes and waffles are both breakfast items, and they're both made with basically the same stuff—flour, sugar, baking powder, you get the gist. But, it's funny, because even though these two seem like they should taste essentially the same, they really don't. Maybe it's the way waffles hold all that melted butter in place, or maybe it's the way pancakes absorb maple syrup. Either way, they're both delish, but which one wins?
Cornbread or Garlic Bread?
Oooh, now here's a decision that we would have trouble with. We mean, come on. Who doesn't love bread! Each bread has its own set of virtues, and likewise, each bread is completely free of downsides. But, when it comes down to it, would you rather enjoy a slice of cornbread, deliciously sweet and savory, or would you rather have some garlic bread, which has yet to let anyone down?
Hamburger or Cheeseburger?
Cheese is a powerful thing. One slice placed on the patty of a hamburger transforms that already delicious sandwich into another delicious sandwich altogether—the cheeseburger. Look, this sandwich is tasty either way, but cheese has a way of taking it to the next level. Question is, are you a fan of that next level, or nah?
Grilled Cheese or Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich?
Two classic sandwiches are going head to head, here. The peanut butter and jelly sandwich has the whole sweet and salty flavor pairing going on, and it has a way of satisfying our every craving. Then again, the grilled cheese can definitely hold its own. Melted slices of cheese between two pieces of bread, lightly fried in butter, this sandwich is just as delicious. Or, is it?
Corn Dogs or Hot Dogs?
Hot dogs are the perfect snack for sports games, sports games and, of course, sports games. On the other hand, the corn dog is really more suited to your average county fair scenario, what with the fact that they're on a stick, and all. Both are delicious, but which one is more deliciouser? You decide.
Soft or Regular Pretzels?
When it comes to snacking, nothing beats hard pretzels. They're crunchy, they're salty, they're good for dipping in various sauces. They're great, but so, too, are soft pretzels, which can be served up sweet as well as salty. Ugh! Another tough decision, what is this, a round of "This or That"?! Oh, wait...
Cheesecake or Brownies?
Decadent, creamy, rich and delicious, cheesecake combines two of our most favorite things in the whole wide world. But, as great as that dessert is, we can't neglect to mention the brownie's many, many pros. Whether you prefer the corner or center slices, the chocolatey, chewy, sweet as can be brownie is a treat worth smiling over, too.
Steak or Chicken?
Just to make things clear, we're not talking about chicken or steak in casseroles and other things, we're talking just as a main course. Like, if you went to a restaurant and looked at the menu, would you order the steak, or would you rather have a big slab of chicken? Now that we've established the ground rules—or, rule, we guess—go ahead and pick one.
Stuffing or Mashed Potatoes?
For years, the debate has raged on—is stuffing the best side dish there is, or are mashed potatoes vastly superior? Well, we certainly know where WE stand when it comes to this issue, but the last thing that we want to do is influence your opinion. So, take a minute. Think it over. And, when your ready...cast your vote.
Chips and Dip or Mozzarella Sticks?
Appetizers are kind of a big deal because they're the food we eat when we're at our hangriest. They're the pre-meal snack that tides us over until our real meal can get to us. We love all appetizers, obvs, but when it comes to choosing between chips and dip or mozzarella sticks, well, consider us stumped.
Curly Fries or Tater Tots?
They're something special about curly fries, and we're not just talking about the fact that they're curly. These things are softer than your average fries, but instead of being soggy and mushy, they have a gentle crunch on the outside that makes them irresistible. At the same time, tater tots, though they're in no way comparable to fries, are just as crunchy on the outside, and just as tender on the inside, but the taste is a whole new experience.
Neapolitan or Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream?
Ice cream is a universal favorite. It's one of the few desserts that we can all agree is delicious! But disagreement erupts when we start exploring flavors. Two popular favorites are Neapolitan and mint chocolate chip. Personally, we could go either way. They've both got chocolate, so we're good, but how do you feel, eh?
Pop-Tarts or Toaster Strudels?
Two of our favorite after school snacks go head to head in this next question of our incredibly difficult to decide food round of "This or That". Pop-Tarts are great, but so, too, are Toaster Strudels. One is crunchy and sweet, the other, flaky and delicious. We're glad you're the ones making the decisions, here, because frankly, we can't choose between the two.
Ketchup or Mustard?
We feel like this question doesn't just go towards determining your foodie score, it also helps people figure out who you are as a person. We mean, don't get us wrong, there is a time and a place for both ketchup and mustard, but at the same time, we've all already picked a side, and the side you've chosen says a lot about you.
Smoothies or Milkshakes?
Wow, this one's another tough call. We mean, have you ever had a milkshake? They're delicious, all creamy and rich and perfect, but we will say that they're definitely more of a dessert item. Smoothies, on the other hand, are often fruitier than milkshakes, and they're less filling, so they make a good snack or breakfast.
Stuffed Crust or Thin Crust Pizza?
Much like cookies, whenever we hear the word "pizza", we're instantly thrilled. Heck, we don't even care if it's a frozen pizza, we're down for that. But, also as with cookies, we've all got our own preferences. So, between thin crust and stuffed crust pizza—both delicious in their own right, no doubt—what's your fave?
M&M's or Reese's Pieces?
A piece of candy can brighten your day. That may sound silly, but just think about it. Like, yeah, sometimes life can be a drag, but it's impossible not to be happy, if only for a little while, with a handful of M&M's or Reese's Pieces. Hey, speaking of, which of those two candies do you prefer?
Doughnuts or Muffins?
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and that's not just our opinion, folks, that's hard science. Sort of. Actually, we're not really sure if it is or isn't, but in any case, there are a lot of options for breakfast, and two of those are muffins and doughnuts. Which would you rather indulge in?
Cake Pops or Cupcakes?
Now, these two may not seem that different. Cupcakes and cake pops are both cake, after all, but they're served up in totally different ways. Ways that are so varying that the taste experience is completely unique. Cake pops are more akin to chocolate truffles, coated in a thin layer of fondant, whereas cupcakes give you more icing bang for your dessert buck.
Bacon or Guacamole?
Alright, alright, we hear you. "How can you make us choose between bacon and guacamole? They aren't even remotely similar!" You're right, they're not, but hear us out. See, bacon and guacamole are just about the only two things out there that have the ability to make any dish better. So, which one is it? Bacon or guac?
Fish Sticks or Chicken Nuggets?
They're both breaded, they're both fried, they're both bite-size, they're both perfect for taking advantage of dipping sauces. Fish sticks and chicken nuggets have a lot of common ground, the only area they really differ is in terms of taste. Indeed, that's quite a big difference. Which of the two are you gonna go with?
Fruit Salad or Regular Salad?
Salad equals health, which means some people, such as people who go to yoga, are going to appreciate it more than others, such as people who don't go to yoga. But a salad is not a salad is not a salad, alright? There are different kinds. You've got your traditional salad, with the lettuce and the carrots and such, and then you've got your fruit salad, which has—no duh—fruit.
Soft Shell or Hard Shell Tacos?
When it comes to tacos, a small difference can have a tremendous impact. Chicken or beef? Sour cream or salsa verde? Cilantro or lettuce? Cheese or cheese? Obviously, the thing that affects the taste of your taco the most is the kind of shell it's in. Given your preferences, would you choose a hard shell or soft shell for your taco?
Oatmeal or Grits?
Both of these breakfast options will stick to your ribs, there's no doubt about it. They're thick and creamy and super, duper comforting. You can make them sweet by adding sugar, cream and berries, of you can make them more savory by adding butter and nuts. There are lots of ways to do oatmeal and grits, but which is your fave?
Banana Bread or Cinnamon Rolls?
Baked goods make our hearts sing, whether that baked good happens to be a cinnamon roll or a nice, big loaf of banana bread. They've both got a lot to offer, and, look, we're drooling thinking about them, so that ought to tell you something about how delicious they are. But of the two, which would you choose?
Broccoli and Cheese or Chicken Noodle Soup?
Soup is one of those dishes that always manages to hit the spot! But, as with, well, anything really, there are different kinds of soups, and by that we really mean you've got your broth-based soups and then you've got your creamy soups. Chicken noodle soup would be a good example of the former, and broccoli and cheese soup would be a good example of the latter. Which would you choose?
Cheetos or Doritos?
Doritos and Cheetos have a lot of common ground. They're both chips, they're both cheesy, they're both great for snacking, they both leave a delicious orange dust on your fingers. But, when it comes to taste, these two are on opposite ends of the tasty spectrums. Which one of these chip classics are you gonna go with?
Beef Jerky or Trail Mix?
We've all been camping at some point, which means we've all come face to face with some classic camp snacks, namely beef jerky and trail mix. They both pack a protein punch, but they couldn't taste more different if they tried. One is savory and chewier than all get out, the other is salty and sweet. What's your favorite?
Shrimp or Crawfish?
Is there a finger food out there that can make you feel fancier than shrimp? We're beginning to wonder. With a side of cocktail sauce, those little pink devils couldn't be more delicious. But, you know, crawfish aren't lacking in flavor, either, and a good crawfish boil, with potatoes, corn and all the fixin's, that's hard to beat, too.
White Chocolate or Dark Chocolate?
Milk chocolate, pretty much everyone can agree that it is delicious. It's when you put only dark and white chocolate on the table that the chocolate debate really starts to heat up. White chocolate rests at one end of the spectrum, creamy, rich and oh, so sweet. Sitting opposite is dark chocolate—rich, decadent and slightly bitter, most would argue it's an acquired taste. Which one speaks to your chocolate loving soul?
