A dumbed-down term used by corporate marketing forces to infantilize and increase consumerism in an increasingly simple-minded American magazine reading audience. The addition of the long "e" sound on the end of a common word is used to create the sensation of being part of a group in isolationist urban society, while also feminizing the term to subconsciously foster submission to ever-present market sources.

Though the terms "gastronome" and "epicure" define the same thing, i.e. a person who enjoys food for pleasure, these words are perceived by the modern American consumer as elitist due to their latin root forms and polysyllabic pronunciations.

Also spelled "foody"

A proletarian or member of the middle class who occasionally eats quality food, often of the type enjoyed by the higher classes but sometimes "exotic" food of foreign lands. What the foodie calls "gourmet," the upper class or upper middle class will simply call "food." Foodies often enjoy displaying their knowledge of food, which they must acquire since they must prepare it themselves, not having the finanical means to regularly have others prepare it for them.
The foodie pushed aside his TV dinners and bagged corn crisps to make way for the newly-bought fresh produce; tonight, after four hours of preparation, he will dine like a celebrity.

6
A person who thinks they know everything about food and the origins of food. Usually these people have zero experience actually cooking and also dealing with the stress of a real restaurant environment. They'll create blogs for themselves to create a sense of self worth, often this isn't there real job. These are the same types that hang out at pretentious expensive coffee lounges. They totally destroy a layman's love of food and makes the average person feel like crap for going out to eat.
Foodie: This is totally going onto my blog (takes selfie with dish)

A fat kid pretentious enough to think up a special word to describe their desperate longing for anything to shove down their face. They'll often claim to be "food enthusiasts" or to have "refined tastes," but they're usually lying.
"I got tired of telling people I had a 'glandular problem,' so I decided to start calling myself a foodie instead. It frees me of those negative connotations and leaves me to be become as lardy as I see fit."
