Fries' best feature? Caramelization, the crunch created when a spud's sugar meets high heat. Oak transforms Chardonnay in a similar fashion, and lager shares a creamy texture with both these treats.

Green apples' most alluring attribute, tartness, is also a hallmark of Sauvignon Blanc, which is why it's good to pair with sour dishes. Pilsners, with their faintly bitter finish, achieve the same result.

I defy you not to love the lemony chew of a sunny Starburst; the smoothest of whites, Pinot Grigio; or a deliciously simple Corona! That these are all unpretentious delights makes them kissing cousins.
