I'm almost alwasy in the eat pizza with your hands camp...but sometimes a pie that is just absolutely loaded with toppings and you can't hold is divine.

I've yet to run into the pizza I couldn't neatly eat with my hands, by folding it a little if nothing else. Then again, I am absolutely opposed to thick, doughy crust, like those "Chicago-style" abominations. Thin crust, Brooklyn-style all the way... :)

I was pretty excited for the Snickers with chili powder, as I was a big fan of the M&Ms test product of chili M&Ms. The Snickers barely had any different taste, and I would've been hard pressed to identify it against a regular Snickers if it wasn't for the slight late spicy finish. Very disappointing.

I eat pizza with a knife and fork, except when it is cold. I almost obsessively wipe my hands and mouth with a napkin after every bite or two and would end up using at least ten napkins to eat about three slices if I did not use utensils.

I am insane, so this is fine for me.

Like a six year old...no technique...just cramming them into my mouth however I can and ripping the meat off as best I can, regardless of the mess or how much is actually left on the bone.

I do eat my boneless wings with a knife and fork, though.

My Grandmother was the classiest woman I ever met. Never a hair out of place, lived in a big, immaculately furnished home, never seen without makeup or in respectable yet classy clothes...

I saw her once eat ribs with a knife and fork.

I'm not sure of this. I find the use of knife and fork for non-knife-and-fork foods to be incredibly disturbing behavior. Were it my loved one, I would be deeply concerned for their mental state. :)

That said, I'm fairly certain my own Mum avoided cooking certain foods because she did not want to be seen eating with her hands...

I'm assuming everyone knows and does the hack of sprinkling a little kosher salt on anything chocolate like cupcakes, ice cream, milkshakes, and the like, right?

Salt with pretty much anything works. Watermelon. Cantaloupe. Coke.

Hells and yes. I did just this past weekend. Sliced it up into half-moon discs, medium-salted both sides, slapped them on the grill, and sprinkled some more when they were done.

Salt basically activates the taste buds and makes everything "pop" at little more. As long as it's not overdone.

I'd also go with sea salt for cupcakes/chocolate/ice cream. Easier to not overdo it.

For health reasons, I've pretty much given up salt, as far as adding it after the food is cooked. Most Americans consume way too much of it.

This just in - salt substitute is a really poor substitute, especially on popcorn. So, there's that.

If you cook for yourself and avoid most boxed/premade stuff, you could add salt after cooking and still be like 4x better than someone who goes the other way.

If you haven't given up soy sauce, on popcorn it is quite good.

#saltsplained
Truth. Most boxed/premade stuff, and many non-upscale restaurants use salt as their go-to seasoning on everything.

And, soy sauce has tons of sodium too, so not much of an improvement there.

Hot sauce... I'll have to try that one.

Both. Mixed. On popcorn.

Soy + Sriracha (Soyracha?) would be good there.

For a banging fry sauce: ketchup, mayo, hot sauce, pepper and worchestershire.

Feel free to move the Chex mix BS here.

For pre-packed, big supermarket distributed ice cream this shit is GREAT. Especially when on sale for like $3 a pint.

I've also tried the Milkshake and Fries.
