IELTS Speaking Part 1 Sample Band 9 – Topic: Snacks

1. What kinds of snacks do you like to eat?
 I have quite a long list of favorite snacks I always seem to be chewing, from ones found in a fast food restaurant such as french fries and mashed potatoes, to sweet cakes like tiramisu or cupcakes.

2. Is it healthy to eat snacks?
 I have to admit that even though I have a sweet tooth I don’t think it’s a good habit to take in so many snacks. Most of the snacks we consume are fried and sweetened and they have been proven to be harmful to our health and can later lead to some diseases such as diabetes or heart attacks.

3. Do your parents allow you to eat snacks?
 When I was still a little boy, my parents were rather overprotective and to me, eating candies and crackers meant being punished by a hard hit on the hands. Now, they are easier on me so I can eat whatever I want as long as I remember to brush my teeth carefully afterward.

4. What was the most popular snack when you were young?
 As I remember, the most common snack at that time was Poca crackers with spicy and prawn flavors. They were packed in colorful wrappers and the price was really reasonable so almost every kid in my class was able to afford them even when our pocket-money was so little.

5. What kinds of snacks do children in your country like to eat nowadays?
 Well, I have a feeling that kids nowadays eat a lot of french fries because the taste is quite delicious and can be found almost everywhere from restaurants to street vendors. Even their parents love to eat it too so sometimes they might buy and enjoy a big pack of french fries with their children.
