About This Quiz

How much attention do you pay to the food you eat compared to the food other people? Have you ever noticed that there are trends just the same as there are in things like music, TV and even clothes? It's true; every generation seems to have their favorites that don't mesh with the generation before or the one before that. Just look at the food grandpa eats when he's left to his own devices. When's the last time you hunkered down for some butterscotch candy or pickled eggs from an unlabeled jar? Your food choices are like a window into the very essence of your being. Heavy, right?  

We're so confident that we can learn everything we need to know about you based entirely on your opinions about food that we'll make you a little wager here. If you answer a few questions about how you eat, what you think tastes great, what you'd rather never try again and what you've never even heard of before, we'll be able to guess precisely how old you are when it's all said and done. It sounds downright magical, doesn't it? Well, maybe a little. But mostly it's food science and some old-fashioned intuition. Take the quiz and see for yourself!
