Mini muffins, baby carrots, early peas. Do miniature foods taste better?

I say yes! Stay tuned for the poll.

errr, the 3rd option should say sometimes, Certain foods. Anyone know if I can edit poll options?

Baby Vegies are the best and also Mini Quishe(sp) and those mini hotdogs and of course the mini ritz bits sandwiches

Ooo! I love mini queche!!

And coconut shrimp, petit fours, and just about anything that requires a toothpick.

I think they're better because I have them less often.

You know I think you might be on to something. I don't know if they taste better, but I do think they are more fun to eat!

They may not taste better but they are so much more fun to make! As a baker I've fallen in love with making mini-tarts and mini-cookies.

Well, I know if I get a smaller portion of Prime Rib than I ordered it may taste the same but I'm not happy!

They do taste better, because you actually savor it. If you eat a Hershey's Miniature (okay, so it's not exactly the best chocolate, but) it tastes better than a whole bar.

Also, donut holes (from the fridge) will forever be the only donut I like.

The pops made for mixers are better too, because I usually get sick of soda before the end of the can.

And mini veggie corn dogs!

i think they taste better, because you can eat more of them without feeling like a pig!

Baby peas and baby carrots are WAAAAY yummier than grown up ones!

Depends on the food - "baby" vegatables are more tender, and I agree that they're better.

In general, I tend to encounter mini foods as badly made party favours - they are definately worse than the none mini version.

One word: cupcakes



Miniaturization vastly improves the cake to icing ratio!!

That is SO true!

I love mini foods- especially mini- candy bars!

Hate to bust the bubble but those are not "baby carrots". Just regular carrots just peeled a special way!! And most likely a cultivar developed for this purpose. I've grown carrots for 20 yrs are my "baby carrots" would be thin toothpick things with no color or taste!! The peas are just harvested earlier than usual and again certain cultivars.

Baby Corn, cherry tomatoes...

I very much prefer baby spinach to grown-up spinach
post #18 of 19
I think it just depends- for the most part- they taste pretty much the same
but i do think that fresh baby spinach, and fresh little green peas rock!!! I also like those teensy tiny little smokey sausages on special occassions

Ya know, I never thought about that. But then again I've never been in a restaurant where mini Prime Rib was on the menu.

I was going to mention that. Even though I know they're just big carrots cut up and polished smooth, they still taste better to me.

P.S. A big thanks to whoever fixed my poll! One of the mods?
