Salty or Sweet

I love salt. I also like my foods heavily spiced. How about you?

I love spicy, salty foods more than sweet foods. One of my favorites things to eat is salsa the hotter the better. The only time I really crave the sweet stuff is after I have Mexican food.

Oh, Gawd - you're making me choose?? I love 'em all!

Try some kosher salt - just a little - sprinkled on a piece of really good chocolate! It will blow you away!!

salty, definately. give me an olive over a chocolate any day! i hate sweet stuff; the only dessert i'll eat is crust-free cheesecake...
i like spice, sometimes... like with great northern beans and collard greens i need hot sauce but other foods like chicken breast i'll take just with salt.

For me it would have to be salty, although I do not like things with a lot of salt. Just enough to bring out the other flavors.

Marm, I love chocolate with a touch of salt. It does amazing things to the flavor of the chocolate!

I love both, too! When I have a craving for one, after I eat it, I usually end up craving the other! The fastest way to my heart is chocolate covered pretzles! :)

Salty for me with an occasional turn toward sweet.
