(STUDY FINDS) – What do your snack choices say about you? When it comes to sweet versus savory, a new study finds your pick reveals a lot about your personality. If you have a sweet tooth, for example, chances are you like to live on the wild side of life.
A survey of 2,000 Americans finds there are major personality differences between those who prefer sweet treats and those who munch on savory snacks. Among those differences, fans of sweets are more likely to be social butterflies while snacking – like when hanging out with friends (20%) or during a game night (19%).
Savory snackers meanwhile tend to save their snacks for more intimate or leisurely events, like on dates (27%) and binge-watching TV (23%). With more time on their hands, sweets lovers would likely end up at the beach (28%), a museum (20%), or in the wilderness (17%). Those with a savory palate, however, would rather go shopping at a mall (31%) or explore a new city (10%).
