About This Quiz

It is said that people grow up loving the foods we had as children and being suspicious of all other types of cuisine. People who grow up in cultures without peanut butter tend to detest the spread as adults. Marmite is either loved or hated by those forced to consume it as children, and hated by anyone who first tries it as an adult. Similarly, our society moves from food to food with time.

In the 1980s, baby vegetables were all the rage. If you were born after 1996, you likely never saw the commercial for the Tootsie Pop with the owl. If you are under 18, it is extremely unlikely that, even if you grew up in New England, a school cafeteria ever fed you a fluffer-nutter sandwich. The foods we eat don't just say things about our personal tastes. They say things about where we are from and how old we are.

We have devised a series of questions through which we believe we can determine your precise age. These questions are entirely about food preferences, specifically the negative ones. If you tell us which foods you truly despise, we can accurately guess your age to the year. Care to give it a try?
