Taste

How do you define taste? Is it the flavour of something you eat, your choice of partner, or choice of decor? After all, we say food tastes nice, she has good taste in men (or he women) and taste when it comes to home furnishings.
Food is always close to my lips heart, and according to WIKI,

………. on average the human tongue has 3000 to 10,000 taste buds.
There are five elements of taste
salty, sour, bitter, sweet, or umami (pleasant savoury taste )…………”

Can you imagine them having a punch up deciding what tastes better, Marmite or chocolate?

I did a series of posts on the senses. You can read the Taste one here.
I’ll warn you now, it is rather long, as were most of my early entries.

Over the years though our food tastes have changed, and whilst Hubby still loves Marmite and I don’t, sweet and salty food stuffs have taken a back seat, though we still have them occasionally.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Salty is more to my taste than sweet, and thank God for that.

  3. Sweet, sweet, and then sweet for me. LOL We have a popcorn you can buy that is lightly salty and lightly sweet. It is a great treat.
