  • Unified Theory of Snacking - A theory of subjective taste preference that states that the ideal snack food should be neither so delicious that inadvertent over snacking becomes difficult to avoid, nor so unappetizing that it would be considered unsuitable for snacking in its own right. An example of the former would be Doritos brand seasoned tortilla chips, especially the nacho cheese flavor. An example of the latter would be Triscuit brand square baked whole wheat wafers, specifically the original flavor. The only snack product so far discovered that would meet the conditions of the Unified Theory of Snacking would be original flavored Goldfish brand snack crackers.
