It’s the aroma of food that’s so often associated with its attraction, but a 2004 British study found sound comes in a close second. It was determined that the crisp sound of Pringles potato chips indicated freshness to those enjoying the snack. The PBS show “The Sporkful” took it a step further and found eating chocolate while listening to high-pitched music made it taste sweeter and the sound helped Dan Pashman, host of the show, determined the right and wrong way to cut scallions. It would seem that little voice many people hear saying, “Eat me,” is not so farfetched.
