So, to learn more about each other, we've polled the ages our fellow chowhounds lay claim to.

Now, how about:

Sweet or Savory?

Soft or Crunchy?

Chocolate or Vanilla?

Dog or Cat?

              savory, crunchy, vanilla, cat, but not in the same meal. I like the kitties on the side, preferably the floor, alive and purring.

                    Savory.

                    Both soft and crunchy, but detest things with Too Much Crunchiness, so lean toward soft.

                    Hmm...vanilla, I guess. But I really want to say citrus.

                    Three cats. Have had dogs and lots of dog experience, but would rather be a dog "aunt" and a cat "mom."

                            The dog/cat question is a tough one. The average dog probably has more meat (definitely if it's a St. Bernard or Great Dane), but cats are so sedentary they're probably more tender.

                                  True, but you can't keep them from climbing on the counters, and they need a litterbox inside. Two game changers for me. I've never tasted either, as far as I know.

                                    True on both counts. But there's not much that interests them on my kitchen counters (except when the window over the sink is open), and I'd probably wipe them down before I prepare anything anyway. (Come to think of it, I'm not sure I ever put food directly on the counter.) And to get from the kitchen to the litter they have to go through a hall, down a flight of stairs, through family room 2 and into the corner of the unfinished portion of the basement. Not sure I'd have two cats if I lived in a 1-BR apartment ;)

                                    ETA: And cats don't expect me to go out on snowy mornings or scorching afternoons when nature calls.

                                        Those are only the non-homosapiens.....................

                                        Mrs B and I spent years as foster parents until we could no longer put up with the inept government agency (DCF). I got tired of constantly going into court to file actions on behalf of the kids against the state (I am an attorney, so it cost time, not cash).

                                        We also have one domestic adopted child and one child adopted in China.

                                        Just don't like a big empty house, the activity/tumult keeps us young.

I had a little pitbull mix (a sweetie) for 16+ years before my Ben, and due to her coloring, she was my "peanut butter" dog. Not a correct description strictly of her coloring, but during belly rubs she'd get all the peanut butter/butterscotch/caramel nicknames.

But damn if the numbers don't skew greatly in favor of savory (26 to just 2 sweet and 7 both) and crunchy (also oddly 26 to just 2 smooth and 7 both).

                                                                                                Guess if I invite hounds to dinner I won't be serving a pureed sweet potato soup topped with brown sugar and mini-marsmallows? (Seriously, I just made that dish up on the spot . . . please don't think I'd serve that to Hounds or anyone else.)

They scooped daily, but even a year after the last cat died, I could still smell that smell as soon as I walked in the door.

                                                                                                                                              Sweet or savory depends on the dish. I like both (together and separate) but there are some things I don't like sweet.

                                                                                                                                              Soft or crunchy? Same answer as above.

                                                                                                                                              Chocolate or vanilla? Both; not gonna choose.....but again, it depends on the dish!

                                                                                                                                              Dog or cat? Which ever one picks me at the moment (we rescue). We've had 3 cats, 2 dogs and 1 bird (exclusive of reptiles) all at the same time. They live a long time at my house (cockatiel is now 23 years old). Currently own said bird, one indoor cat and are in the process of being accepted by an outside stray.

                                                                                                                                              I have probably eaten cat but would like to forget that it might have been possible (lived in foreign countries).

                                                                                                                                              1. viperlush RE: sandylc Oct 7, 2013 08:10 PM

                                                                                                                                                            Sweet or Savory?
                                                                                                                                                            Yes. Sometimes both at once.

                                                                                                                                                            Soft or Crunchy?
                                                                                                                                                            I like soft and I like chewy but prefer crispy to crunchy.

                                                                                                                                                            Chocolate or Vanilla?
                                                                                                                                                            French vanilla and vanilla caramel. I do love chocolate but for me it doesn't have the deep emotional resonance some seem to feel.

                                                                                                                                                            Dog or Cat?
                                                                                                                                                            Have always been a cat person. Still, no cat will ever worship and adore you the way your dog does.
