There has long been a debate in our family as to whether 'tricking' someone into eating something (usually on the premise that it is 'healthy' for them) is an acceptable practice. Last Summer, I went out to eat with my cousin, who has kids of a varied age, and watched as she told her youngest (4 and 9) that calamari (squid) was 'chicken.' Both kids happily gobbled up the pieces of fried squid slathered in marinara sauce, but their father was not too pleased. He argued that honesty should be a policy, even from parents to kids, and, himself, refused to try the new food. I am telling you this because I was raised the way my cousin chooses, but with a little less courtesy.
Have you tried any of this year's Do Us A Flavor chip winners? If not, which would you most like to try?
What Daughter Says: Modern brands are making it easier and easier to explore new flavors with mainstream snacks. Why not be bold and take a bite?
