What’s the Hardest Snack to Stop Eating Once You’ve Started?

  The old slogan for Pringles potato chips was, “Once you pop, you can’t stop.”  And apparently it wasn’t just marketing nonsense.  It’s scientifically accurate . . .

More than 2,700 people recently took a survey to find out the hardest foods to stop eating once you’ve started.  And salty stuff like potato chips took the top spot.  Here are the top five . . .

1.  Chips, pretzels, and other salty snacks.  35% of people said they have a hard time stopping once they’ve started.  (Here’s an old Pringles ad from the ’90s.)

2.  Candy, not including chocolate, 18%.  So stuff like Skittles and Starburst.

3.  Chocolate, 12%.  That includes candy bars, like Snickers and Butterfingers.

4.  Crackers and other bread-based snacks, 11%.  So things like Cheez-Its.

5.  Cheese, 10%.  String cheese might be one of the main culprits there.  (Here’s a scene from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” after Charlie eats too much cheese

1.  24 hours a week, or about five hours a day.

2.  Pays $80,000-a-year.

3.  Free food in the office.

4.  A dress code that lets you wear jeans.

5.  It’s only 12 minutes away from where you live . . . but you also have the option to work from home.

6.  Six weeks of paid vacation and holidays a year.

7.  Flexible work hours.

8.  And a cool boss who sometimes wants to go out for a drink.

5.  “I would’ve been your dad, but your mom didn’t have change for a $5.”

6.  “Whoever told you to be yourself couldn’t have given you worse advice.”

7.  “That’s why everybody talks about you behind your back.”
