Savoriness (also spelled savouriness) is a quality of food that deals with a rich, salty flavor, as contrasted with sweetness, which is a sugary flavor. Savory foods include potato chips, cheeseburgers, tacos and pizza, while excluding foods like cinnamon rolls or lollipops.

Analyses of different food markets often break down the snack food market into sweet and savory snacks. In addition, countries where the word "cookie" or "muffin" is ambiguous might, for example, clarify using either the phrase "sweet muffin" or "savory muffin".
