"Mouth Feel" is one of those things that's hard to describe, but the moment you experience it you know exactly what it is. Like art, mouth feel is up for interpretation. Everyone's palates are different, but there are those foods which almost everyone can get behind. Thankfully, we have self-proclaimed 'foodies' to steer us in the right direction.


Reddit user, u/Wakizeki, wanted to know about the best foods with the best feels when they asked:

What food has the absolute best "mouth feel"?

All The Best Explosions

This local chinese restaurant has these AMAZING dumplings. Even disregarding the fact that the outer layer is so smooth, the inside is filled with soup, so when you bite into it, there's just an explosion of flavor and a literal explosion of liquid that happens in your mouth. Really the best mouth feel of all time.

The Juxtaposition Of Soft And Crunch

Toasted sourdough with butter. Warm crunchy softness.

Gooey Textures

Giphy

A perfect grilled cheese sandwich: the crunch from the crust of the grilled bread, the softness of the middle part of the bread, the unctuous, gooey middle, then you repeat the soft bread and finish it off with the crust of the grilled bread.

If you layer the outside with cheese and put that on the grill as well, then you get some extra texture as well. For me, that bite is amazing.

Frozen, Hot Brownie

Brownie sundae.

Warm brownie. Cold ice cream.

I didn't know what my answer was when I entered this thread. Now I do.

Only The Best Pizza

Crispy pizza, not squishy pizza, if you go to a top notch Italian pizza joint you'll know what I mean

Starfall44

A nice, thin crust that is crisp on the bottom and on the crust, but still has bend and chew to it. A good tell is when both the top and the bottom of the pizza get a nice mid-brown coloration and the sauce begins to dehydrate around the edge of the crust.

Oh, also brick oven all the way.

Mousse And Squirrel

Mousse.

Like... Legit mousse, the stuff made by folding heavy whipped cream into egg whites.

It's soft and fluffy while still managing to somehow be dense and heavy. It's like if someone took brownie batter and superimposed it with cool whip while maintaining the texture of both.

It's weird. And awesome.

Fresh-Made, Or Not At All

A freshly made good croissant. Delicate, flakey and crunchy when you first bite into it which instantly gives way to soft, slightly chewy, melt in your mouth buttery goodness.

On the flip side biting into a badly made, dried out one is just the biggest disappointment ever.

Flakiness

Baklava.

You get flakiness then crispiness then a soft squishy feel. It can depend on how you make it.

How Is This Scientifically Possible?

Have you ever had a rootbeer float and the rootbeer made the ice cream crunchy?

radpandaparty

The trick is to use your long spoon to baste the ice cream with the root beer.

Sometimes, Price Equals Quality

Giphy

Good quality macarons.

There are a lot of bad macarons out there & a lot of people have only had the bad ones.

I should add, I love the Laduree ones, they're pricey but worth the experience to eat in every once in a while & take a fancy box home. If I lived in London, I'd probably buy one or two on my way home all the time!

I still haven't tried making them myself even though I'm an experienced baker, due to all the horror stories. But I think I should bite the bullet & try it now.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
