Gold Diggers

I caught myself doing this last night while munching on a bag of chips and realized that I do this with many of my favorite foods.

For instance.... when I am eating a bag of seasoned chips, I find myself looking for the chips with the most seasoning on them.

Or, eating pesto and pasta, I find myself looking for that one noodle with all the pesto stuck to it.

Or with a rib-eye, that one sliver of meat that is always the most tender.

Popcorn, look for that one piece of popcorn that is so fluffy and buttery!

Who else does this and with what foods? I'm curious!!!

I'll include folded potato chips and I will also include that popcorn kernel in the bottom of the bowl that has started to open but has not popped yet - it's crunchy and perfect. I also like slightly burnt popcorn so I will hunt those kernels out too

Count me in for all of those too. The folded potato chip is a great one. Even better is when two or three are folded together.

when I make pasta w/ pesto, after tossing it all together, there's always the clump of cheese on the tossing utensil. I don't share it, I eat it!
Cajun popcorn, I like that. :)
Oh, and of course as the chef I get the piece of chicken w/ the most crispy yummy skin on it.

I don't go hunting for the best one because I know I'm going to eat them all!

cajun popcorn

Andy M has the technique down perfectly!

We used to take our folded potato chips, or one with a bubble in it, and tip into our coke and drink the coke out of it - the sweet/salty was a pure treat!
