I was always regarded as a bit of a freak in my family because I like chocolate and sweets. I can ALWAYS have something sweet, and usually can't resist it if it's around. Crisps/chips...not so much. Its not that I don't like them, its just that I never FEEL like it.

After growing up in a household where no one would touch their easter egg chocolates, so I was FORCED to go into the cupboard where everyone kept theirs for months and take them all, and I was given VERY judgmental looks everytime I refused some chips that were being passed around-- was quite a revelation to find that the rest of the world also likes chocolate, and it's not THAT strange.

This stupid poll is bringing back those old feelings of being in a sad minority.

Well, I think YOU guys are freaks. So there.

You're not a freak! Most people I know would easily pick sweets over salt.

Chips being fries and crisps being chips, correct?
Oh boy is it getting rough, when my old world charm isn't quite enough.

I just had a chocolate donut with salt on it. Didn't work for me.

Talking of which, I WAS starting to get into pork scratchings recently, but fairly quickly got out of the habit, as they are the most unhealthy snack you can buy.

I would have thought the same thing - the poll shows otherwise :?

Evidently we're a salty lot. No surprises there.

i always crave sweet things in the morning and salty things in the afternoon. always.

sometimes though around midday i get confused and i don't know what i want, so on those days i reach for liquorice. it's a combination of the two tastes. perfect.

so there you go. take note.

Funny stuff licquorice. I never really liked it, but when I was very ill 20 years ago, I had a craving for licquorice allsorts. I ate a lot of bags of those at the time but not since.
Mind you, I also had a craving for cornish pasties and chicken sandwiches, but not with the allsorts.

Me too though a local chocolatier makes a dark chocolate dipped toffee with coarse bits of sea salt on them that are divine.
This is not the year to think about what we don’t have.
It is the year we should be grateful for what we do have.

I could probably survive longer without chocolate than I could without cheese but I really want both.
I probably get a greater amount of pleasure from salt but there are moments when nothing is as wonderful as something sweet. Right now I'm going to make a cup of tea and have a chocolate cake with it.
It will quite possibly be the highlight of my day.
Bugger off.

Sugar - Bob Mould's band. They made some excellent albums. A superb guitarist. I prefer Hüsker Dü and his solo stuff though. All three Sugar, Hüsker Dü and Bob Mould have a featured on a PSL.

Salt - a great little band of the 70s and 80s featuring Mick Clarke, Stuart McDonald, Alan Platt and Stevie Smith.
They rocked - you could work up a sweat at one of their gigs!

Funnily enough I had a Facebook chat with 'Little Stevie' only this week - a great harmonica player by the way - about a Salt gig I saw at the Canning Town Bridge House - which was sadly demolished to make way for a road widening scheme.

Sugar v Salt - I'd say a tie

Once in a cafe I put sugar on my chips by mistake - they were inedible as a result.
