People often argue back and forth over what the most delicious foods are in the world. But what if we changed this discussion to prioritize a different perspective? Instead of taste and flavor, what if we determined the top-ranking foods on the metric of how texturally pleasurable they are to eat? According to the Internet, here are 12 of the most satisfying foods from a textural standpoint.
Sometimes fries can be a little too burnt. Other times they are slightly soggy. On occasion, they can be stiff and overly crispy. But on the rare occasion, you’ll come across the perfectly fried french fry. This particular food item is hard to beat when it comes to textural satisfaction.
Nothing is quite like biting into a crisp, steaming baguette from the oven. Firm on the outside but soft on the inner portion, it offers an experience you just can’t beat. Even breaking the baguette in half with your hands is satisfying!
There’s something about fruit that has been harvested at just the right time that is incredibly irresistible. Perfectly ripe fruit has passed the point of being too firm, but it has not yet gotten soggy or limp. Instead, it provides the ideal texture of soft and juicy fresh fruit.
The way the dough of a bao bounces under your fingertips primes your mind for the sensory paradise you’re about to bite into. As your teeth sink into this soft and pliant bun, you experience a texture that feels kind of like chomping on a cloud.
Crispy Egg Roll
Flaky, buttery, and oh-so crispy, a perfectly cooked egg roll is a prime example of delectable food texture. The satisfying crunch you hear when you bite into one of these savory treats is a feeling you won’t forget.
It may be a simple choice, but this food is a classic breakfast staple for a reason. The contrast of the crispy and crunchy warmed bread with the soft, melting butter is a textural match made in heaven.
Ice Cream Cone
We’re not talking just any old part of the ice cream cone. We’re specifically referring to that part at the bottom that absorbs the last remnants of ice cream and gets all soft and flavorful. Just looking forward to this final bite makes you want to finish your ice cream faster!
These salty treats make the perfect addition to any meal. Pair them with a soft sandwich to add some crunch to your meal, or binge on a full bag of them to experience the ultimate crispy texture extravaganza.
When you cut into a perfectly ripe melon, you’re rewarded with a fleshy fruit that is both crisp and juicy. Biting into a nicely sliced chunk of watermelon gives you an explosion of refreshing flavor.
There’s a reason why S’mores and campfire marshmallow toasting sessions are a popular pastime. When you achieve a golden brown toast on a soft and gooey marshmallow, you create a masterpiece that marries all the best elements of food texture in one.
A Dipped Cookie
Whether you prefer chocolate chip cookies or Oreos, you can’t deny that dipping a crisp cookie into a glass of milk greatly enhances the texture of your sweet treat. You soften the cookie and saturate it with refreshing, cool milk. It’s a snack that’s just as yummy as it is texturally pleasing.
Boba has become quite the popular and trendy beverage of choice these days, and one of the most satisfying elements of these drinks is the popping pearls within. Experiencing the feeling of these chewy or juice-filled bubbles bursting on your tongue is a textural joy that ties the whole drink together.
