About This Quiz

Sweet and salty. Just sweet. Just salty. Sour. Spicy. Crunchy. Chewy. These are just some of the words that describe the best food group there is: junk food. While junk food isn't necessarily good for your health, it does wonders for the soul and can bring you back to a particularly good time in your childhood, or propel you forward into a time in your life you can't wait to get to. Snacks can be transformative, especially if you make your own creations by combining multiple junk foods into one. If you smash Nacho Cheese Doritos on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, your life will never be the same. The combination of sweet and salty, crunchy and soft, is truly life-changing.

Your junk food preferences also lend good insight into who you are as a person. It's true! If you like primarily sweet foods, you most likely have a sunny disposition on life and look forward to each and every new day. But if sour is your go-to, you might be a bit bitter either about something specific or just about life in general. Maybe you use junk food as an escape, or maybe it's your reward for a job well done. If you want to know what your tasteĀ in junk food says about you, take this quiz now!
