That the flavours are like a long-lost civilisation and you have just freed them and you can almost hear the crisps singing in unison at the sheer joy of the situation?
what kind of thread is this?
I’m on a train.
I’ve never imagined this no.
What colour is your train?
in a similar vein though, sometimes when I’m eating a snack I like to imagine how ancient people of ye olde civlisations would be amazed at my lovely morsel and think how lucky I am to live in a time of readily available amazing snacks
Yellow with a blue stripe in the middle
I think people from 100 years ago wouldn’t be able to cope with the flavours we have now. I think it would hurt their tongues
did people even have snacks before about 1960?
I guess like berries growing in a bush maybe?

does make you think though
I think that still applies. Was just thinking it while eating a bag of crisps while walking around Utrecht Centraal. It was the burst of flavour smell when I opened the crisps that inspired this thread.
I’ve really turned around on this thread btw!
