A snack is something you eat inbetween meals. It's quick and requires little preparation. Hot Wings are not a snack.


You know they can come frozen right? Same as pizza rolls?

Guac takes some prep time too but that's a snack IMO.
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

Should it be specified as garbage frozen pre-made gutter wings then? :D

Exactly. Homemade/restaurant quality wings vs. Peanut M&Ms does not fit the spirit of this competition. That TGIFriday's crap? Sure.

Bagel Bites and Pizza Rolls I'd probably lean as snacks but then it's a slippery slope into chicken nuggets, mozzarella sticks, fish sticks, meatballs, hot pockets, etc.

These are all snacks.

Snack: a small amount of food eaten between meals.

Appetizer: a small dish of food or a drink taken before a meal or the main course of a meal to stimulate one's appetite

Sounds like that appetizer comes between meals, and I don't agree at all the prep time qualifies a snack. THAT'S a slippery slope.

If said appetizer is traditionally also seen as a meal, I would say it should be disqualified. That distinguishes wings from guac. Mozzarella sticks might be one that sticks.

"Wings" is also too broad. That could be its own region.

You literally could pick any food, miniaturize it, and call it a snack/appetizer. Burgers, hot dogs, pizza, boeuf bourguignon, etc.

Appetizer = before a meal = first course. Snack = between meals = not a first course.

Agree with crkone - anything that is often used as a main course is out. Anything that's ordered in a restaurant should be out (chips and salsa/guac would be exceptions.)

Before a meal is literally "between meals."

Appetizers are meant to be pre-meal snacks. Most appetizers aren't answers to "What'd you have for dinner?" In fact, buffalo wings firmly fit into that category until large chains like Hooters and Buffalo Wild Wings pushed the envelope.

It's pretty telling that you're not sitting in an actual restaurant ordering "wings" for the meal. That "restaurant" is actually a bar, or highly specialized.

I legitimately adore that folks are getting into a spirited debate about how to define "snack," and how you can know a snack when you see one.

It's not between meals though, it's part of the meal. The opening note, the introduction, the first inning.

Wings are a meal all the time, what are you talking about?

I'm nominating steak tartare as a snack. Salty.

Agreed! :lol:

I'm not being sarcastic when I say I adore where the conversation is going.

The locale does not classify the food. Ive been to several bars that serve better meals than a formal restaurant. If wings qualify (they shouldnt), then I nominate tater tots and we can just end this tomfoolery rn.

Also where do nachos stand?
