It’s supposed to take at least 20 tries of a new food before you’ll develop a taste for it. We've all got our own unique culinary preferences. Plus, it’s not always about the actual taste. Sometimes we just like to eat certain things. We might decide to loathe something because of its texture or love a food because of its color. Or, quite simply, we’ve never had the food prepared well before and are suffering from a misapprehension that our Mom’s melty tuna casserole (with marshmallows in it?) is actually what all tuna casseroles taste like everywhere.
We’re going to identify a food or drink. You select the statement that best matches your reaction to that item. Don’t expect this quiz to actually treat your taste buds, but you may want to have a snack on hand in case you get hungry. We did try to pick particular mouth-watering images!
Chantelle took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say, she found herself immersed in literature from before she was born. She’s been known to tell her friends all about how she can still remember the passages she heard her mother read to her when she was in the womb - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Whether she’s whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on her second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name she refuses to disclose), Chantelle has continued to keep her feet wet with words, as it were. You’re sure to get a kick out of her giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.
Adults have between 2,000 to 4,000 total taste buds, most of them are on the tongue. But there are some also in the back of the throat as well as the oral and nasal cavity.
Your taste buds are crammed with sensory cells connected to different nerve fibers. Each of these taste organs has between 10 and 50 sensory cells, which have finger-shaped extensions actually called “taste hairs.”
Ever thought some bad cooking or truly spicy food would kill your taste buds? Don’t worry: taste bud sensory cells are renewed once a week. Each of your cells has a sensitivity to different basic tastes. One might be sensitive to sweet, but another might be tuned to salty, sour, or bitter. The cells also transmit information about the intensity of the taste. Considering there are five basic tastes and ten levels of intensity, there are essentially 100,000 different flavors you could taste.
Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around.
