About This Quiz

What's your favorite burger joint? How about your favorite fast-casual place? Do you still love chalupas? How about Wendy's famous baked potato?

Your answers to these questions may reveal which generation you belong to. The Silent Generation, Baby Boomers, Generation Jones, Gen X, Millennials and Gen Z were each raised on very different foods. Furthermore, once they reached adulthood, they were exposed to rather different food trends, cuisines and food scares.

Baby Boomers were told to steer away from high-fat foods, while Millennials are more likely to eschew carbs. Younger generations may be fans of Sonic's Green Apple Ice Cream Slush, while Gen X diners can't get past its artificial taste. The Silent Generation and Millennials see eye-to-eye on the charms of a simple order of Five Guys fries, while Gen Z and Generation Jones both prefer Chipotle (but for different reasons).

In this quiz, we'll ask you about all those fast foods and more! Then we'll use those answers to calculate your age. Think your taste is different from that of the rest of your generation? Prove it, by taking this quiz!
