"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.

Fam. Weighted blankets.

If you (or your kids - I see you, exhausted parents) struggle to stay asleep at night, weighted blankets might be a game changer for you. We got one for our 1-year-old after a week of her waking up at 4AM for baby jam sessions.

Best $31.99 we have ever spent. Ever.

As kids, we spent about 8 hours every day in school for 10 months of each year. Not surprisingly, a few useless lessons made their way into the curriculum.

Well, maybe more than a few.

Kids say some seriously whacky stuff sometimes, it can be disturbing, especially when they tend to discuss people who are not there. When the imagination is heading into "The Sixth Sense" territory, it may be time for a visit to the therapist. Now almost all of us had imaginary friends at one point in life. It is a very normal, common part of childhood. But much like the real friends in corporeal form we make in life, sometimes certain relationships are toxic and not a good influence. And separation is called for.

Redditor u/xX_ENTROPY_Xx wanted to hear about people's children's besties that they haven't laid eyes on by asking..... What's the scariest story you heard a child tell about their "imaginary friend"?

Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it. That is one of the wisdoms of life that people are always throwing around. It can be especially true when meeting your idols, finding your dream job and searching down blood relatives you knew nothing about. The DNA discovery craze has been all the rage the past decade or so. Everyone is running around contacting family they never knew they had. That can be quite the Pandora's box of family secrets and scandal.The outcomes have been all over the place. Though one of the best led to the discovery of the Golden State killer so that's a win.

Redditor u/VideoFork wanted to know who would be willing to give up some salacious tea about their blood tie discoveries by asking..... People who have taken an ancestry DNA test and accidentally uncovered a family secret, what was it?
