    Smile Difference between: CRACK, CRACKLE and CRUNCH

    Hello reader,


    I saw a notice regarding food. It said: So get cracking, get crackling, and get crunching now!

    Could someone explain to what is the difference between these words?


    thank you in advance,
    Madox

    To me it sounds like get started (get cracking), open it (crackling = noise of unwrapping) and crunching is the noise from eating it.
