Do you remember your first culinary experience with anchovies? When you’re a kid, your daily life is filled with firsts. New experiences and tastes… good, bad, and odd. A friend once told me his goal as a foodie was to taste his way through life like a child. Hopefully life doesn’t just bring him spoonfuls of pickled onions.
Watch these kids try foods for the first time in slow motion. They tend to get rather expressive. Many of the foods tasted are what we would call “acquired” tastes. Have you ever tried Vegemite? The Aussie’s go crazy for it, but to me it tastes like used diapers in dirty socks.
I think the kid who tries olives takes the cake. You can almost hear the inner monologue…
“OH MY GOD, that’s disgusting! Wait… OH MY GOD, that’s amaaazing!”
Oh yeah, and this dude below.
