Cilantro – Yes or No?

Cilantro. On the side.

I’ve read that for some people it tastes like soap.

Others can pile it on and enjoy the distinctive flavor.

Cilantro- what do you say?

yes or no?

What makes us like or dislike tastes? Last night at the Kiez Eis store one of the ice cream flavors was Spargel/asparagus. Another distinctive flavor. I wasn’t brave to try it although I eat it as a vegetable.

My DIL told me recently they offered Cilantro Ice Cream flavor and it was delicious. To her. Would you try it?

Flavor Preferences

Flavor Preferences. What do you like to taste? Is there a flavor you avoid or don’t like?

Is there a difference between a flavor and a taste?

Where do our preferences come from?

Who are the flavorists who add the flavors to what we consume? I’m not even getting into natural vs. artificial flavors.

People within the same family prefer different flavors. How they taste.

Some individuals detest licorice. Others love it. Cilantro? Spices? Peppermint?

If a family gets ice cream cones does everyone choose the same flavor?

Varieties of flavored waters, drinks and seltzers are big sellers.

Wikipedia -“Of the three chemical senses, smell is the main determinant of a food item’s flavor. Five basic tastes – sweet, sour, bitter, salty and umami (savory) are universally recognized”

I regret not purchasing this particular drink flavor- I’d really like to taste it (seen at Thanksgiving where sold at the Gourmet Garage NYC). Seeing the photo in my phone reminded me I didn’t taste it. Thinking about rhubarb makes me salivate a bit(yep, I said that). My mouth water. I like rhubarb. The tartness. Next trip, I’m buying it!

I’m sure there are people who don’t like Vanilla. Chocolate. Strawberry. Garlic, Ginger. Cinnamon.
