Why Does Fried Food Taste So Good?
Onion rings, french fries, and wings — oh my!
The love Americans have for fried foods borders on an obsession. We crave them so much that we go out of our way to indulge in them, even though we know we should maybe be eating broccoli. But why does fried food taste so good? Science provides both a psychological and chemical answer.
