taste flashbacks

Does anyone know what I mean? I get these. They're not the same thing as cravings. It's like the flavor of something I haven't tasted in awhile will suddenly, apropos of nothing, flash through my head/across my mental tastebuds. I can be walking down the street minding my own business when suddenly & strongly, whoa, pot roast or jelly doughnut. It tends to happen more with proteins and sugars than with veggies or grains, which makes me think it's more evolutionary than personal.

Am I making any sense?
