I was eating chicken after lunch and enjoying the crunching sounds of the breading, and I came to wonder...
Why is it that we as a people enjoy crunchy foods? Is it the satisfaction of destroying something with each churn of our jaws? Is it something deeper, primal.
Why is it that we enjoy crunchy cereal but hate it when it gets soggy? What's the difference? It's just wetter.
So why is it that we like crunchy foods?
