About This Quiz

Some of us eat to live, and the more enlightened of us live to eat! If you think about your next snack while you're eating your current snack, then this is the quiz for you. The kinds of snack foods that we crave are extraordinarily regional. You're probably not reaching for pork rinds if you live in Boston, and you're definitely not looking for boiled peanuts if you live in Los Angeles.

It's not just the brands of snacks either. Depending where you're from, you might have very strong regional preferences for flavors. Are you a Cheetos purist? Or do you like the melt-your-face-off spicy Flamin' Hot variety? We reckon that if you're from the Midwest, you prefer the former. If you're from the Southwest, you prefer the latter.

Even things like jerky are regional! You might prefer alligator jerky in the South, seitan jerky in the Northwest, and traditional jerky in the East.

So gather the crunchies and munchies of your choosing, make sure you have a napkin, and get ready to take this quiz! We bet we can tell you where you're from based on your answers (and the Dorito dust left on your keyboard.)
