19 ICE BREAKER What does your snack choice say about you?

20 ICE BREAKER What does your snack choice say about you? Challenge: Hunger

21 Popcorn If so.. You know how to take charge of a situation, and are usually quick to pick up the slack if the need arises. While these men and women have great self confidence, they are rather humble- no one would ever call them show offs. Popcorn lovers may hide their success so will they appear to be a “poor relation”, while they squirrel away their treasures. If you inherit money from a relative you thought was flat broke, he or she was most likely a popcorn muncher.

22 Cheese Puff If so… You are conscientious and principled and expect others to be too. You tend to take the moral high ground. With your finely tuned sense of right and wrong, you treat everyone in the same and fair manner. You have integrity. You may appear rigid to others, but in reality you just know enough to plan ahead. In your house, the spare batteries and Band-Aids are right where they belong- just like everything on your desk.

23 Nuts If so… You tend to be easygoing, empathetic, and understanding. Nut lovers can be counted on to stay calm, even in the midst of upheaval, so even a screaming spouse or a disappointing boss won’t ruffle you. They do well in jobs that involve the public. Nut lovers may not be outstanding leaders, but they contribute to a peaceful home and an effective office.

24 Pretzel If so… You’re a lively sort of person, easily bored with the same old routine. You look for new challenges at work and at home…and can spend hours mulling over abstract concepts while you much on your pretzels. You are flirtatious and like to dress in a provocative manner, but you quickly tire of a trend and are off to find the latest style. Pretzel lovers are intuitive, overly trusting in romantic relationships. They’re fun to be with, but they are vulnerable too.

25 Potato Chip If so.. You’re an ambitious person, and a high achiever. You enjoy the rewards of success both at work and at home. Not a selfish sort, you enjoy the success of your spouse and children, too. You also tend to be impatient with less than the best, and you are easily frustrated by life’s little blips-traffic jams and waiting inline make you crazy.

26 Meat Snack If so… You prefer to be with other people while you indulge. Meat snack lovers are at their best in the company of others because they are so gregarious and sometimes generous to a fault. If you want a true friend, pick the meat snack lover: they are trustworthy and always loyal. They will go all out for friends and family, even to the point of making sacrifices.

27 Tortilla Chip If so.. You’re probably a perfectionist: if it’s less than perfect you’ll redo it. Not satisfied with a mere A, you want and A+. These individuals are not selfish, so if you want a partner to help you fight an injustice, look to the people with their hands in a bowl of tortilla chips. Invite them over for the weekend too, because they’re likely to be good houseguests. The tortilla chips lover is punctual and conservative. A male tortilla chip lover can slip into a tux and feel just as comfortable in an old T-shirt but don’t look for a tortilla chip loving woman to dress provocatively- she is rather restrained sexually.

28 Snack Cracker If so… You think out problems using a rational, logical approach. You tend to be shy and avoid arguments because you don’t like to hurt another person’s feelings. Chances are you have many projects going at the same time, and they are competing for your attention. Cracker lovers tend to be loners who prefer private time, so you probably value those relaxing moments with no responsibilities or interruptions. Those who prefer snack crackers may easily find themselves involved in an online romance.
