Do you ever wonder about questionnaires and what they really reveal? If you want a window into people’s thoughts, the Proust’s Questionnaire is a good place to start. You can even find out which celebrities you most resemble on Vanity Fair’s version of the Proust Questionnaire. I’m practically one with Jane Goodall and quite in synch with Ray Charles. How about you?

Maybe it’s our food affinities that really expose who we are. If you have a soft spot for the gooey, aromatic and sweet things in life, then you’ll surely love these Nutty Fruity Bits.
