About This Quiz

From scalloped potatoes and steak tacos to pepperoni pizza and pineapples, there are a wide variety of recipes and snacks to choose from in the culinary world. And while there are no right or wrong preferences when it comes to such foods, your favorite flavors will give us insight into the colors of your hair and eyes. For example, if you have amber eyes (which are quite rare), then you might love citrus flavors that are more "light" on the palate. This is because amber eyes can appear to be golden or yellow (like a lemon fruit).

Your food palate is also made up of several "tastes," which includes bitter, umami (savory), sweet, salty and sour. So if you crave more bitter foods, then you might love coffee, dark chocolate, red wine and cranberries. On the other hand, someone who likes salty foods may crave potato chips, mixed nuts, pretzels and lunch meats (such as ham or turkey). And if you're curious about the umami taste, this just means savory flavors like tomatoes, soy sauce, soups and shellfish. So no matter what you love and hate in the culinary world, this food test will determine the colors of your hair and eyes!
