Your opinion ... do foods taste different based on their shape?

Friend says baked beans taste different than the same baked beans run through a food processor.

In other words, would chickpeas taste different than hummus? Assuming the spices for both were the same?

I'm not entirely convinced my friend is right or wrong, but it got me thinking. Would a plain baked potato taste different if it were mashed? I think it might, although just barely so.

I mean I could definitely see pureed carrots or celery tasting very different on the palate than a stick of carrot or celery.

What do the 'Hounds here think?
