A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips, an hour or two on the fingertips: let's hear it for the puffed, fried, baked, and popped treats that have left their residue all over our lives. Can you identify the eight common snacks depicted in these not-at-all-disgusting photos? (And do you dare to admit it in public?)

Answers are here. Please post your guesses, speculations, or arguments below! But know this: the Trivial Eye is presented for public amusement and no prizes are offered other than that familiar feeling of aggravation that so much of your mind is occupied by useless trivia.

Technically I'm 7/8 because I guessed cheese-nips not cheese-its.

8/8 but I thought we had to name specific flavors, like Nacho Cheese or BBQ.. for that, well, the color balance on these pictures is right terrible. Look at those fritos for goodness sake! There's something horribly, terribly wrong with the lighting.

Fritos® does not have an apostrophe.

Puh-leeze, Toon... I got them all INCLUDING flavors. Gimme a challenge, bro!

In other news, my self-loathing has just taken a step up.

8/8 in yummy goodness! The colors for 4 and 7 seem off, though. What kind of camera took these?

Only 7 of 8 here.

I agree. I thought it was perhaps a problem with my monitor. 8 looked dark, but I could tell what it was. I had no idea what 4 was and it should have been the easiest one. It looked more like lutefisk than a crunchy snack.

I got all of them except #4.
I thought they were tortilla strips.

I just ran Photoshop's auto level adjust and auto color balance on all of them to be consistent. That may, in fact, have given these images an odd cast. Then again, it could be that these snack "foods" really are a weirder variety of colors than their packaging leads us to accept.

Either way, Trivial Eye WINNERS make correct responses, not excuses.

1. Ruffles..probably barbecue.
2. Cheez Its..although they could be Cheese Nips. Send me some and I will let you know for sure.
3. Chex Mix
4. Lays Original Potato Chips
5. DORITOS!!!
6. Sun Chips. They look like Cheddar flavor.
7. Fritos Corn Chips
8. Cheetos (Crunchy)

^I guessed these then looked at the answers. It scares me how many I got right. I feel both fat and ashamed. Could someone pass the Doritos?

In my defense, I would like to submit exhibit D which is a picture of Ruffles Barbecue (obtained from the interwebz):

Exhibit D is for DELICIOUS!

When I was in college some friends and I went to a grocery store late at night to pick up limes and Cheez-Its (never mind why).

We were disappointed to find that they were out of Cheez-Its (this was before the elves bought Sunshine and there was just the One True Flavor of Cheez-Its, so they didn't have as much shelf apace).

As we were leaving a girl who worked there asked if she could help us find anything. A friend said we were looking for Cheez-Its, but they were out. She said, no, we've got them, and, hearts lifted, we followed her through the store.

When we got to the snack aisle she said, "here they are!" and pointed to the Cheese Nips.

We were crushed.

I believe they were taken with a potato, but the focus is almost too good for that.

Oh yum!

If I bring some ranch dip and some salsa, am I invited to whatever party this is?!

Seriously? I've lived in China for the past five years and eat very little junk food in my short annual trips back Stateside and I got 8/8 (though I missed a couple flavors). I'm not bashing anyone who missed anything, but I enjoy the challenge of trying to figure out how many of these I can get (and how many I can write off as "how was I supposed to know that" pictures), and this one is way too easy.

Mulligan!
