About This Quiz

Like everything in life, the way we eat has had to evolve with the times. If you think about it, there was probably a time when we were just eating whatever we could catch in the wild with our bare hands. Then one day our ancient ancestors discovered fire, forks and Big Macs. You can follow the trends in food as easily as you follow trends in movies or fashion or music. Avocado may be the flavor of the day today, and in two years it might be turkey jerky or persimmon paste. Some foods like fried chicken or bread seem timeless, while other foods like those Jell-O salads, aspics or beef stroganoff kind of get lost in the past.

Food is food, and if you like old-fashioned sort of vintage food there's nothing wrong with that, that's just the way you like things to taste. But if you're not sure where your tastes lie, or whether you're a little more old-fashioned then the average eater out there, just tell us a bit about the foods that you like to eat and we'll let you know just how old-fashioned your taste buds really are. Take the quiz and see for yourself.
