I used to love candy ! -- but, as I get older: some of it (Pez) tastes like _powder_. Jelly beans and gummy bears taste like _plastic_.
And no candy can beat raspberries / blueberries by Mother Nature... (or a watermelon)
But I still love chocolate ! (But, like, has to be: Symphony or Cadbury.)
And p.s. I don't think b/c losing sense of smell, either. (Probably mostly b/c more health conscious, and if stop eating something, your body stops craving it.)
But, if I'm going to the movies--that's a different story. Can sit there, chomp and chomp. (Same thing: if I'm eating pizza, then I want root beer, but otherwise: don't care about soda pop.)
I haven't liked brownies or cake for a long time, either. Still cheese-cake and maple-bars (once in a while).
Mostly, I mean to say: funny, how your tastes change, huh ?
