About This Quiz

The food that we eat can say so much about us. It can tell others how health conscious we are, which part of the world we come from, and even how old we are. Now, how can food do all that? Well, if you're from the Caribbean, there's a chance that you're more of a fan of fried plantains and jerk chicken than someone who didn't grow up around those foods. The same goes for age. If you were to tell a 16-year-old about canned fruit salads, there's a high chance they'd stuck their tongue out and say that it sounds disgusting, but because you grew up in a time where it was considered a delicacy, you'd feel the opposite way.

So, we're going to attempt to guess your age-particularly whether you're 50 or not- with this food quiz. We'll ask you about your thoughts about foods that ruled in the past, as well as some about the current food trends that are going on today. All we need are your honest opinions for us to make our judgment about your age. So, if you're ready to find out whether you're half a century old yet based on your food preferences, let's get started.
