M: So you can say I prefer sweet snacks or savoury snacks or sweet and savoury. Also, you can say I prefer crunchy snacks. So for example, crunchy, is something that crunches. Like... Crunchy, you see. So this one is not really crunchy. It's like soft, this chocolate pie thing. It's not really crunchy. Right? Crunchy like apples. Like again, crackers. When do you usually have snacks? So, Rory, you said that never after dinner, so you have your dinner and then no snacks.
R: Well, ideally, never after dinner. I mean, actually, that's good adverb to have or to start off with, because you could say anything afterwards. But you're talking about what you would really want to happen. So ideally, never after dinner, although sometimes that's just not possible, because maybe dinner wasn't enough, or wasn't filling enough in this case.
M: And then an "if structure". If I'm going to have a snack, or if I want to have a snack, it will probably be the mid-morning. I usually have snacks in the middle of the morning or afternoon.
R: The mid-morning, the mid-afternoon, because they're my peak hours because I'm a primary school teacher now. So I have to work lots and lots in the middle of the morning and in the middle of the afternoon.
M: But also, dear listener, you can have a bedtime snack before you go to bed.
R: Yeah, if you hate yourself. What, I can't imagine anything worse than eating before bed. Do you do this?
M: Sometimes? Yeah, yeah. I'll have some cheese or some, for example, something savoury or sweet. What about children, Rory? What did you say about children?
R: I admit I had a little bit of fun with that one. So it's like, really, the question is about the specific kinds of snacks that children like to eat in your country. But instead, I took that to mean how much or how often they have them. So I said too many or too much. And so that's like a joke. And then you go into more details about what they have. But to be honest with you, and I'm wondering if this is just true in my country, or if it's true everywhere. Like, I think there's no limit to the different kinds of snacks that kids can have. So you can just say like they come in different shapes and sizes, different forms. They cater to a variety of tastes. And actually, that's a good use of taste here because we're talking about snacks and eating. And taste is what people prefer. So it all fits together quite nicely. And you haven't even given a very specific answer. Because, really, I mean, children enjoy different things, don't they?
M: Yes, they do. And usually, they seem to enjoy sugary snacks. So snacks with sugar, high in sugar, sugary snacks. What about the most popular snack when you were young, Rory? A long time ago, Rory was young. So...
R: But did I give an answer to that?
