Some people eat corn on the cob by biting along a row 0r rows of kernels along the length of the ear. Others bite a ring of kernels around the ear. No big deal.

I do the latter but with a purpose. Biting along a row the length of the cob allows time for the melted butter to run to the bottom of the ear and drip off. Butter on the plate is a bad thing.

I eat around the cob in rings and the constant rotation of the ear provides a re-basting of the ear with the melted butter. Butter on the corn is a good thing.

When my girls were young - pre-teens - we shopped at a local market. The deli counter had two huge glass jars of whole cucumber pickles. One was old fashioned dill and the other sour.

They both would sit with their pickles and bite off an end then spend the rest of the day just sucking the juice and seeds out of the pickles. They could make them last for hours.

can I mention my husband........he eats like an engineer.......the kids used to point out to their friends to watch him cut pancakes.........it was an art.......every pancake was perfectly bisected into even wedges and just an angstrom of syrup was allowed to go on top with nothing running over the sides........me I just ate like a hog........I love him though.........

I'll cut the center out of a dill pickle, eat it first and then eat the outside.

I dip my steak in the mashed potatoes and eat it that way.

I hate eating things like soup with a regular-sized spoon. I prefer the large ones. And don't even get me started on those little salad forks. I want real, long tines on my forks. No Munchkinware for me.

I'll eat all the outside parts of a cruller first (the "wings", for lack of a better word) before the inner portion.

I prefer my ice cream almost completely melted.

I discovered my favorite guilty pleasure, Nacho Cheese Doritos and French Onion Dip, while my mind was a little, ummmm... altered, about 22 years ago. It helped keep me from grinding my teeth all night. I don't eat it much these days, but will pull it out as a standby when I get the urge.

I make a point of removing the seeds from lemons before I squeeze them into my water, especially if I'm drinking with a straw.

I dip the spoon in the yogurt instead of scooping it with the spoon. It lasts longer that way.

I shake my "fruit-in-the-bottom" yogurts instead of stirring. That way I get bites of plain yogurt with my fruit.

I typically suck the pimentos out of the olive and eat them before eating the olive itself.

I'm sure I have more that Mizzphinz would tell you.

I don't know if this is a quirk or peeve. I cannot eat in a quiet room with someone else. I just can't stand to hear myself or someone else eat. I don't mind restaurant dining because I don't hear it but in the house I have to have noise in order to eat with my daughter or someone else. Also can't stand popcorn eaters at movie theatres. Just bugs the livin' daylights out of me. And, of course, I don't/won't eat at a movie theatre.

My quirk is I leave the pizza crust , I eat the pizza to the crust , then leave the crust. I like the cheese and sauce best of the pizza. Either hubby finishes my crusts or I throw it to the birds.

I tend to chew on foods that don't require chewing, like ice cream, yogurt, or pudding. I just seem to enjoy it much more that way...not sure why.
