    You tastes also change when you get old and your taste buds die off. Now that I'm getting old I love Sriracha sauce so much more now. I can put that crap on anything.

      Always loved veggies, even as a kid. Never liked moldy cheeses no matter how much I was exposed to them 🤷‍♀️

        Surprised cheddar didn't touch on the whole microbiome cultivation in your gut which can change to adapt to the food you eat and will cause you to have cravings for those foods.

          I don't think I've ever heard anyone I know say they've gotten sick from sushi before.

                I used to really hate mustard when I was a kid. But my fiancé taught me to enjoy it alot.

                    Very true. I hated the taste of coffee until I started working at a coffee shop. Started drinking it with about 6 sugars and half and half. Now I drink it with 1 sugar and dark. I hate sweets now because I started liking and eating spicy food all the time which I never liked as a kid.

                                I quite like the taste of most vegetables, including asparagus.

                                              4:32 And the body can also misattribute sickness to the food you last ate. When cancer patients are about to get a new round of chemotherapy, they are advised _not_ to eat their favorite dish right before as a last treat before hell begins, because they may learn to hate their favorite meal.

                                              I can't stand bitter food, no matter how much of it I've forced myself to eat over the years. It's actually frustrating as it makes it very unpleasant to eat a lot of vegetables.

                                              "If you eat something that makes you sick, your body and mind can remember." Boy, he's right on that. I had a pizza with green peppers on it when I was about 7 that made me vomit. Forty years later, the thought of green peppers makes me ill, even though I love spicy food.

                                                Wouldn't the lessening response of the taste receptors to repeated exposure to the same tastes imply "the more you use it the more you lose it", instead? ( 2:20 ). Or does it mean to the rest (not repeated) tastes? Maybe it should be rephrased?

                                                      I find adults who dislike mushrooms, tomatoes, pickles, onions, and most other vegetables as childish. Especially if they love overly sweet things. I wonder if there is a correlation with maturity, responsibility, and class when it comes to sweet vs bitter.

                                                        25% of the population just can't stand any bitterness. It's genetic apparently. It's also why commercial transformed food is almost never bitter.

                                                        I've always liked brocolli. It's always been one of my favourite green vegetables. You guys probably just prepare it wrong.

                                                          if it's overcooked it starts smelling like sulfuric compounds and tastes bitter. if you boil it for 5-6 mins it would smell like a fresh veggie and would taste sweet. so you have to stop the cooking process when it's just before done.

                                                        I got a quiche yesterday. I had never had one before and I always thought they looked good, (I love spinach) but when I had mine it was so gross. Probably poorly made as everything else from this place was poor too. When I took a bite I wanted to spit it out. I couldn't take a second bite it was making me want to gag, so I just pushed it away. Later on I took a nap and I had a nightmare centered around this damn quiche. It was that bad. lol

                                                            My mom in her 70s is living proof there are exceptions to the tastebuds dying off thing.
                                                            She can't take most brazilian sweets, including chocolate, restaurant food is always too salty, and she can't take sodas because of how much sugar is in them.
                                                            Something that tastes super bland for me will be the exact ammount of seasoning for her.
                                                            She's also semi vegetarian... meaning that rarely, she will eat some meat. But for the most part she doesn't eat because she simply doesn't like the flavor and texture. It doesn't have much to do with ethics and whatnot. She eats tons and tons of fruits and veggies, very diverse taste other than that. Wish I could be more like her... xD

                                                            And very true about the reverse of acquired taste... I don't like some seafood and don't particularly like carrots exactly because of food poisoning cases or just having to eat those when they were far past fresh. Carrots are particularly nasty when they go bad. Ugh

                                                            It's also about texture. I can't eat anything that is slimy, that pulls those strings when you mess with it. It's one among the few japanese food I can't eat - natto. I tasted it already... the flavor itself is kinda neutral, there's not much to it. But that texture.... holy crap.

                                                            And then there's the too strong smelly thing that I just can't take, I can't even stand in a room with it without gorfing. Of course, the always controversial durian. This goes down to genetics, but much like other people who absolutely can't stand it, it smells strongly of hot garbage to me. Wish I could like it, but I just can't.

                                                            As for acquired tastes... green tea and pepper were major ones for me I think. I wouldn't take those when I was a kid, no friggin way. For some reason, I also only like zero or light sodas these days. It's not about the calorie count, I just like them. Like they have a milder flavor than straight regular sodas, which goes well for me.

Whenever I eat them, I dislike the overly sweet taste and I feel sick afterwards. How should I train myself to like them? Eat other sweets with significantly less sugar?
