Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker aforalpha: "What food or drink do you enjoy that was an acquired taste for you?"

Basically anything on the bitter spectrum, especially beverages: Coffee, wine, tea. I just didn't have a bitter palate at all, until hormonal changes in my mid-30s affected my sense of taste (and smell).

I didn't love bitter citrus until then, either, and now I cannot get enough lime and lemon. Still not super keen on grapefruit, but at least I can tolerate it now.
