Succulent.  Juicy.  Savory.  Luscious.  Tender.  Tantalizing.  Full bodied.  Orgasmic… Words that evoke physical feelings of pleasure from the tips of your pretty pedicured toes to the top of your finely coiffed tresses make you pause and take notice of the subject in question.  If you sit and contemplate the word, odd things may happen: you...
