I was filling out a competition application when I came to this question and I am completely stumped. Anyone got any ideas they would be willing to share???
Complete this sentence: If I were an ingredient, I would be _________.
Why would you be that ingredient?
Ooh, what fun. I'd be eggs because I do love to laugh and can't wait to hear a good yolk...hehehe
I think I know what application you're filling out...
They're trying to get some insight into your personality -- I would try to answer the question in a way that allows you to tell them something you want them to know about you.
"I'd be a flavor extract, because I'm so versatile".
"I'd be chocolate, because I'm so sweet".
Something like that. But use something better than my examples... they convey what I'm talking about, but they're still too corny.
I hope that helps! Good luck with the application!!!
