About This Quiz

Within the culinary world, there are a wide variety of flavorful snacks that can curb your hunger or affect your mood. In fact, many of these snacks contain flavors that relate to at least one of the five basic human tastes, which are sweet, salty, sour, bitter and umami (which means savory). Some examples of these types of snacks include candy, pretzels, lemon pie, ginger and dried seaweed.

As you age, your snack preferences will likely change as well. For example, if you once preferred sweet or salty flavors, you might crave more bitter or sour flavors as you begin to grow older. The same can be said with regards to your preferences in movies, TV shows, games, fashion and so forth. Human beings become exposed to new life experiences, friendships and cuisine during the course of their life. So it's no surprise that your age reflects your favorite treats and snacks. Of course, you could also be the type of person who hasn't changed much when it comes to food, as some people prefer to stick to the foods that they've always loved. So don't tell us your age just yet, because we're about to guess it based on your favorite snacks!
