Eat with your Eyes: Divided by Color

Tiny Size Chiclets

Do you need to separate your different flavors of candy before you eat them? What if the candies are only different colors, do you still line them up before consuming?

(These are Tiny Chiclets, reviewed here.)

  1. There is something strangely soothing about this photo; I can’t seem to look away!

    I guess that gives me away as someone who prefers to divide and conquer, huh?

  2. I like to separate my Skittles into different colors when eating them.

  3. What a gorgeous photo!

    Tiny Chiclets always confuse me: they’re just too small!!!

  4. yes,  If I have room to lay them out then they are grouped by color, all the extras are eaten until all colors are even and then what is left is eaten evenly or by favorites until all gone.

  6. Nope. If they’re small enough, I just gobble ‘em up.

    Sometimes, though, I’ll save my favorite flavor for last, but that doesn’t matter if the colors all taste the same.

  8. you ask this like it’s a choice.  Of course candy has to be divided by color and eaten one color at a time. Why else would candies like M&Ms; be different colors, when there’s no taste difference?

  9. I always each the brown M&Ms; first and save the red ones for last.

  10. I usually don’t care, but tasting the individual flavors by themselves is nice and that’s the only case I’ll do that.
