salty palate vs. sweet palate--opinions?

lucia | Dec 10, 2001 04:26 PM

I'm curious to know what people make of the following:

In my experience, eaters fall generally into two distinct categories: those who prefer salty, savory foods far more than sweets, and those who prefer sweets far more than salty/savories.

The salty folks are those who asked for jars of pickles and cocktail onions for their birthdays. The sweeties wanted a big special cake.

I fall hopelessly into the salty savories, to the point where I forget to plan dessert sometimes when I have guests coming and wind up scrounging up some grapefruit thingy at the last minute (which the sweet people only grimace at).

Want to stay up to date with this post?
