"I swear I have gotten every single person I know hooked on this. It sounds so weird but I promise it's delicious. I spread grape jelly on the top of my grilled cheese. It can be a little messy but if you hold it like pizza, not so much." —brittnyw


2. Gummy bears.

"FREEZE YOUR GUMMY BEARS!! They become really hard and then you suck on them so they become soft and chewy, allowing you to experience the flavor in all of its glory. Don’t knock it ’til you try it." —laurenw55

5. Doughnuts with icing.

"Stop what you're doing and flip that delicious doughnut upside down. This kid I went to high school with once told me that the trick to eating a doughnut is biting it so that the icing is facing down so it will come into contact with your tastebuds first. Trust me, it works." —caseyrackham

6. French fries.

"Instead of salting/peppering/whatever-ing french fries, I usually put some ketchup out and season that instead. Sometimes I'll have like two to three ketchup piles on a plate with different spices." —Michael Gettings, Facebook


7. Cereal.

"Don't stick to just one. Combine different types of cereal for awesome new flavor combos. Just stay within a category. Example: Combine Froot Loops, Fruity Pebbles, and Trix OR Cocoa Puffs, Cocoa Pebbles, and Cocoa Krispies. Mix it up!" —La Viola Viva Ward, Facebook*



14. Doritos.

"Doritos and sour cream are a gift sent from the gods. You don’t even need to clean out all the delicious orange powder from the whole sour cream container, it’s like a reminder to your family that you’re the supreme human being." —emilyj4dea3217a


18. Wings.

"The key is to first remove the bones so you can enjoy the delicious wing in one (or two or three) bites. But all that matters in the end is that you don't leave any of that sweet, sweet meat on the bone." —caseyrackham

19. Quaker Chewy Dipps.

"Quaker Caramel Nut Granola Bars: I nibble the bottom half of the bar to leave just the top two layers of caramel and chocolate, and then I eat those together. I've done it ever since I was little, and I've never stopped." —Katie Batt, Facebook

21. Grapes.

"Put your fresh grapes in the freezer. They become like mini popsicles and the freezing process intensifies the sugar taste. Perfect when you are craving some type of ice cream treat!" —Moka222


22. Nutter Butters.

"Open up Nutter Butter cookies, put a square of a Hershey bar on the filling, and microwave for about 10 seconds. Put the cookies back together and enjoy!" —Tracie Hugenroth Campbell, Facebook
