Eat the Rainbow: Outrageously Orange

By Lindsay Der

In a thoroughly-researched and scientifically innovative experiment, I have figured out a definitive ranking of almost every orange snack I could think of. Here’s my procedure: stop by your local grocery store and buy every orange food you pass by. Once you’re home (or in the car), take a sample from each snack and compare them to one another. I ranked my subjects on everything— flavor, texture, experience, associated memories— and compiled all the data into a comprehensive list. Feel free to recreate this experiment at home, though I can’t guarantee you’ll reach the same results.
