When i heard the texture explication, i don鈥檛 understood what鈥檚 the difference to 鈥淐rispy鈥 and 鈥淐runchy鈥 so i started to investigate the differences and i finded this:

鈥淎 鈥渃rispy鈥 food is a dry, rigid food which, when bitten with the incisors, fractures quickly, easily, and totally, while emitting a relatively loud, high-pitched sound.

鈥淐runchy鈥 foods, on the other hand, are dense-textured foods which, when chewed with the molars, undergo a series of fractures while emitting relatively loud, low-pitched sounds.

basically it鈥檚 the same, the different it鈥檚 the height of the piece.

I hope this will help you 馃槃
