    Do things taste different now that you're older

    I noticed this about two years ago. I have always loved chili powder as a seasoning but suddenly I developed a strong dislike of the taste of it in anything.



    This week I seem to have developed a strong dislike of anything with yeast in it (bread, donuts, beer) It all tastes kind of disgusting now. Suddenly I really, really like the taste of paprika. I've used paprika all my life but now that's what I want in my chili(I guess I'll have to call it papriki?), on my cottage cheese, on my fried eggs. It's crazy.
    I didn't say your perfume was too strong, I only said the canary was alive before you got here.

    A lot of things don't taste as good as they used to. I generally credit that to the "healthier eating" movement that has ruined McDonald's french fries forever.

    Has also ruined KFC forever!

    dkay, are you sure your paprika isn't smoked paprika? Because I could never in my life taste plain paprika, but the smoked paprika is really good, like you said, especially on eggs!

    Many things taste extra salty to me because I cut way back on using salt. I also noticed that when companies buy out other companies the flavor of the food changes probably because they have found cheaper ingredients to make the product and the taste suffers.

    I mostly taste things by memory these days, since sense of smell has declined.
