I must be getting old. Because I'm getting to like vanilla ice cream more than chocolate.
Maybe I'm not old enough, but I don't understand the correlation. My 90 year old grandmother will take chocolate over vanilla any day.
Taste buds. They seem to change for the more blander stuff as we get older. That hot fiery stuff or double rich chocolate just doesn't taste as good as when I was much younger. Now, I seem to enjoy the simpler flavor meal over an intense one.
The older I get, the spicier I make my meals. Ive always preferred vanilla tho
My 6 year old takes Vanilla over Chocolate every time.
At nearly 50, my taste for spicy food is greater than it's ever been (and so is that of my 75 year old father).
Depends on the vanilla, true vanilla ice cream using beans has a complexity that is not plain vanilla. I think my tastes have matured over the years, though I still like chocolate.
My taste for chocolate or spicy has not changed as I got older, however while my taste buds dont care I have noticed the super hot stuff does bother my gut more
I think it has something to do with eliminating salt. I seem to pick up the flavors of other spices better when they not mix heavily with sodium.
I prefer vanilla as well, as long as it's smothered in chocolate syrup.
Amen brother!! I too enjoy eating hot, spicy foods, but the later payback often seems not worth it!
BTW, I'm 68 and still prefer a really good chocolate to vanilla.
I noticed that in my food also. I'm using way less salt than I did at a much younger age. I had noticed that in my dad in his later years before he passed away. He would use almost no salt at all, and this a man that used to cover his can of beer with salt when drinking it.
As I got into my seventies, I started to lose my sense of taste and smell. I could distinguish between the characteristics of sweet, salty, spicy and acidic but beyond that, food became almost tasteless. I was referred to an Ear, Nose & Throat specialist who suggested that my olfactory nerves had been damaged, probably due to a sinus infection at some point in time. He noted sinus obstructions and a deviated septum and performed corrective surgery that helped regain some of the senses. However, I was put on a prescription for a corticosteroid nasal spray that I have to use on a daily basis. Unfortunately, one of the side effects is diminished sense of smell and taste.
Still in all, I've always preferred vanilla ice cream over chocolate. Chocolate or hot fudge sundaes are fine with me, as are chocolate ripple, chocolate chip and cookies and cream ice creams, but I still don't care very much for chocolate ice cream.
I like to mix my vanilla with chocolate. As for getting old you are not as young as you use to be nor as old as you gonna be.
Yeah, I like Vanilla Bean better that plain Vanilla. I had a friend who was in the ice cream business and he told me quite a bit about it. The one thing that really stuck was if you pick up a store brand half gallon package and a "name" brand half gallon, the name brand container will be heavier. That's because the cheaper brands are infused with air. He told me that about 35 years ago and I've never doubted it. Of course, I had to make many taste comparisons....:lol:
