What tastes different since you were a child?
I'm not sure if this will end up being a thread for dinosaurs, but I was wondering if the taste of any foods that you ate as a child has changed.
For me it's store bought tomatoes. As a kid, I ate them whole like one would eat an apple. As I got older, I thought I was just losing my taste for eating them that way. I had the privilege of eating a tomato from a woman who gardens, and all that childhood yumminess was right there. She explained that store bought tomatoes have been bred to not bruise during shipping, so there is more meat and less juice.
Paleobird mentioned in another thread that when her father tasted her grass fed beef, he said it tasted like beef from when he was young.
So, I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if so, has shopping for better sourced food given you back something you thought you no longer liked.
