About This Quiz

Did you turn your nose up at Brussel sprouts as a kid, but now you love them? Did the sight of carrots make you queasy until you were in your mid-30s? It's strange how our food tastes change as we get older! Once you tell us about the foods you've tried, we think we'll be able to relate your palate to how many candles were sitting on top of your last birthday cake. 

Although there's no formal name to the changes your tastes in food experience over your lifetime, scientists believe that it has a cause. As we age, our senses begin to dull which could blunt our smell and taste of the foods we try. We're not saying that's the reason we'll be able to accurately guess your age, but we are saying it might help! Do you think we'll get it right? 

If anything is for certain, this quiz is going to make you hungry! You might want to grab a snack as you tell us what you have tried, what you would like to try, and what you would never want to be served. After we've made you reach for the takeout menu to try something new, we'll guess how old you are. Can we do it?
