Choose and Defend: Sweet or Savory?

Good and evil, black and white, Fox News and news. Our world is filled with opposites, and that’s a wonderful thing.

We don’t have to be so polarized about every little thing. The 18th century poet William Cowper wrote that “variety is the very spice of life, that gives it all its flavor,” and the 20th century poet Sir Mix-A-Lot penned the touching lines, “I like big butts, and I cannot lie.”

Small butts are good, too, but that’s a topic for a future “Choose and Defend.” Today we’re debating the most important contradiction known to mankind: snack foods.

If you really want to know a person, offer him or her a snack food. We all know that one guy who says “I don’t really care for ice cream” or “chips aren’t my bag,” and depending on our gastronomic proclivities we either think “that’s my kinda guy” or “who is this freak?”

Now it’s time to expose yourself for the freak that you are. You must choose one and only one, and you must defend your choice. Failure to follow these two simple rules will result in a garlic ice cream force feeding.

Would you rather have:

– A sweet treat

eskimo pie


– Or a savory snack?


Answers must be served on a waffle cone, and come on people: Let’s make Laura B. proud.

  1. The salties are making a run for it. Another Tweet brings the vote to a 2-2 tie: I am a freak who does not care for ice cream. Cake? Whatever. Oreos? Gross. Give me doritos or give me death.


  2. I donno, man. You can add cayenne or sea salt to chocolate to create something sublime. Adding cocoa powder to chili creates depth of flavor. As much as I enjoy ice cream and Italian ice in the summertime, I’m gonna have to side with savory. Prosciutto with melon anyone? πŸ˜›

  3. Before I felt competent to reply to this post, I had to do my research on what Gwyneth Paltrow would recommend. Two hours and $5,200 later, my girl parts have been steamed clean and I’ve rebalanced my internal magnesium levels through drinking a cocktail of clay and sparkling water but I am no wiser on what’s best: sweet or savory.

    At the end of the day, I’ll go with whatever you call “cashew.” Put a tick under “savory.”
