English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. delicious

    That is delicious which affords a gratification at once vivid and delicate to the senses, especially to those of taste and smell; as, delicious fruit; a delicious odor; luscious has a kindred but more fulsome meaning, inclining toward a cloying excess of sweetness or richness. Savory is applied chiefly to cooked food made palatable by spices and condiments. Delightful may be applied to the higher gratifications of sense, as delightful music, but is chiefly used for that which is mental and spiritual. Delicious has a limited use in this way; as, a delicious bit of poetry; the word is sometimes used ironically for some pleasing absurdity; as, this is delicious! Compare DELIGHTFUL.

How to use delicious in a sentence?

  1. Bobby Awadalla:

    If we can make skin care as easy and delicious as drinking a Red Bull, I thought, people would use it more, people resist putting cream on their skin because they don’t like the greasy feel and smell. Athletes don’t like sunscreen dripping in their eyes.

  2. Alon Seifan:

    They all have the same thing in common. It's five food groups — it’s the fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains and healthy fats, so we have an entire menu based on those five food groups, any combination of those is both delicious and good for us.

  3. Natalie Rizzo:

    Sauerkraut does more than give your burger a delicious flavor boost, it’s actually a good source of probiotics, aka the good bacteria that live in your gut. These bacteria contribute to the health of your gut and are essential for a healthy digestive tract and immune function. Certain things like an unhealthy diet, undue stress, or a harsh round of antibiotics can affect the balance and health of the probiotics in the stomach. So it’s important to feed your gut with natural sources of probiotics, like sauerkraut.

  4. Ash Fulk:

    For me, I like bringing lamb out to tailgates, i think lamb grills out fast, it's delicious and it's a little different than your classic tailgate items. Skirt steak is also one of my personal favorites. You marinate it, throw it in a Ziploc bag, total ghetto style, and it cooks real fast.

  5. Michelle Obama:

    The talented people who cook the food at your school will be offering you all kinds of healthy, delicious new choices. Foods that are good for you and taste good, too.
