What's the Hardest Snack to Stop Eating Once You've Started?

posted by Scott and Sadie - 

The old slogan for Pringles potato chips was, "Once you pop, you can't stop."  And apparently, it wasn't just marketing nonsense.  It's scientifically accurate . . .

 

More than 2,700 people recently took a survey to find out the hardest foods to stop eating once you've started.  And salty stuff like potato chips took the top spot.  Here are the top five . . .

 

1.  Chips, pretzels, and other salty snacks.  35% of people said they have a hard time stopping once they've started.  (Here's an old Pringles ad from the '90s.)

2.  Candy, not including chocolate, 18%.  So stuff like Skittles and Starburst.

 

3.  Chocolate, 12%.  That includes candy bars, like Snickers and Butterfingers.

 

4.  Crackers and other bread-based snacks, 11%.  So things like Cheez-Its.

 

5.  Cheese, 10%.  String cheese might be one of the main culprits there.  (Here's a scene from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" after Charlie eats too much cheese before a date.)
