Can We Guess Where You Grew Up Based on Your Taste in Snacks?


The state or region we come from shapes a lot of who we become. The foods we grow up eating are often our comfort foods. Do you ever have a craving for something you loved as a kid, even though you haven’t eaten it in forever? But what if you move away? Do your tastes change, or do you carry your hometown with you on your adventures? Can people’s likes and dislikes be shaped by the region in which they grew up? Do people from the Midwest like one thing, while people from the Southeast go for another? What do you think? We’re going to try to guess where you grow up based on your taste in snacks. Answer these questions about your food preferences and see what you get! Think we’ll be able to tell? What about your friends and family? Share this quiz with them to see how your results compare.


Quiz WriterJoselyn

Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

10,000 Tiny Tasters

Our tongues have just over 10,000 tastebuds that help us recognize flavors in our food. When we eat, our tastebuds send signals to our brains and tell us what we’re tasting. Each tastebud is specialized in one of the five flavors: Salty, Sweet, Sour, Bitter, and Umami. Salty tastebuds are found on the outer rim of the tongue. Sweet tastebuds are located on the very tip. Sour tastebuds are in the middle, on either side. Bitter tastebuds rest on the very back, and umami tastebuds settle across the entire middle surface of the tongue.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
