Believe it or not, your age plays a major role when it comes to your favorite types of foods. In fact, not only does your personality change as you grow older, but your palate does as well! Your taste buds are constantly evolving, and the foods that you loved when you were younger may not be your favorites when you become older. Whether you think we're right or wrong about how your palate changes as you age, this fun food quiz will explore a little more about what you're currently craving.
Food preferences are not exactly black and white, since a human being's palate relies on various types of "tastes" from your favorite foods. These basic tastes include bitter, sour, sweet, salty and umami (which is a fancy way of saying "savory"). For example, if you prefer more sour types of foods, then you might like recipes that includes citrus elements (mainly from lemon and/or lime juice). On the other hand, someone who loves salty foods may prefer chips, fried chicken and hot dogs. But remember, as your taste buds change, you may slowly start to prefer other types of these "basic tastes." Tell us more about the foods that you love to eat, and we'll determine if you're younger (or older) than the age of 30!
