Last Bite?

When I'm eating meals, I find that about halfway through I decide what will be the last thing I eat. What morsel will be the final thing to pass my lips - the item on the plate that will be responsible for leaving the lasting impression.

e.g. During today's leftover homemade chix pot pie with leftover kale, I ate all around the crust of the pot pie until the crust was the only thing left in the plate. I savored it at the end of my lunch.

Do you do this? If so, what are some "save the best for last" items you find yourself reserving until the very last bite?
