Persuasive Text: Deciding whether Popcorn, or Chips would me more appropriate

Extracts from this document...


Persuasive Essay Mike Weston October 26, 2007 Popcorn or Chips? We all have those times during the day when we get a little hungry, but not for anything big, just a small snack to hold you over until your next meal. The tough part is deciding what to eat. You look at what you've got. Popcorn and chips. Which one are you going to reach out and grab? I'm here to save you the contemplation. Chips are, hands down, the winning choice. It seems that chips are the "in thing" with most Americans and popcorn is, well, overrated. People seem to forget about popcorn. They just look at the chips, then the popcorn, and 8 times out of 10, it is the chips that are being chosen. ...read more.

If you are eating chips, you never have that problem, no matter what type you are having. In conclusion, I have noticed that popcorn just doesn't live up to potato chip's standards. It just lacks in flavor and quantity. It takes way too long, it is hard to find while grocery shopping, and you do not have many choices flavor wise. Potato chips, on the other hand, have much flavor, and quantity wise, they crush popcorn. They are made quickly, and easy to find. They are also filling enough to satisfy all of your guests. It doesn't get much better than a good ole' bag of chips. ...read more.
