They're crunchy on the outside and gooey on the inside, and they're a little frisky on the tongue. Jalapeņo poppers are a popular snack, but they're not for every palate.

ThisWeek staffers were asked: Do you like jalapeño poppers?

Sarah Sole: Absolutely.

Lee Cochran: Love them, especially the ones my friend, Mark Lytle, makes. (That's a hint, Mark!)

Dennis Laycock: So very much.

Scott Hummel: I do like them. My system is incompatible with them, but I like them.

Andrew King: I'm not particularly fond of jalapeño-based foods.

Lisa Proctor: I can't handle jalapeño peppers, or poppers.

Abby Armbruster: I do in theory. The last time I made them, I gutted the jalapeños without gloves on so my fingers burned for a while.

Nate Ellis: Don't necessarily dislike them, but I don't particularly like them either. I never order them and will basically try one or two when the opportunity avails before recalling I don't think much of them.

Neil Thompson: I don't just like them -- I adore them, particularly the hard-to-find scratch-made variety. Poppers and fried mozzarella are go-to “bad-food” guilty pleasures for me.
