Chocolate, Raspberry,Vanilla Sauce and Cream

What a perfect mouthful. Steve brought home a fancy dessert from his dinner out. I was headed up to bed. I said I’ll have one mouthful. I put it on a spoon and poured a bit of the accompanying sauce in a little dish.  Oh my!

What a mistake to make one teaspoonful.  I could have eaten the entire dessert but look forward to repeating the experience tomorrow. Not sure how early in the day would be okay.

 

I did not lick the bowl but thought about doing so.

What’s Inside is Sweet

Cheri Lucas Rowlands at WordPress challenges bloggers to post a photo of something (or someone) sweet.

Vincie brought the foil wrapped Betsy Ann chocolate balls (made in Pittsburgh) to the House Concert and Molly brought the Sarris Candies (from Canonsburg) for Valentine’s. Sweet!

I think the bright wrappers make it inviting to unwrap them.

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.
