About This Quiz

Over our lifetimes, our tastes change. Do you remember how you hated things like broccoli as a kid, but now you don't mind it? Once you tell us about the foods you love, the ones you hate and the ones you feel indifferent about, we will be able to guess how old you are! 

You don't need to be a professional chef to take this quiz. In fact, we prefer that you answer with your taste buds rather than your food knowledge. Discovering the kinds of things you like to eat will certainly lead us down the path to your age. Whether we start eating different foods because we need to change our diets or we've simply become more adventurous, the foods you think are yummy will give you away. 

Throughout this quiz, we will challenge you to tell us how you really feel about the foods we present. It's unnecessary to like all the foods we ask you about because even the things you despise will tell us something about you. Luckily for you, we are going to mind our business and focus on the year you were born.
