About This Quiz

Ahh, sushi. One of the great culinary experiences out in the world.  It's more than just food when it's done right. It's practically art.  The combination of flavors, textures and colors is unlike what you'll find in any other kind of food.  That's part of the reason it's so popular, after all.  The fact it's tiny and easy to enjoy in a variety of ways helps, too.

The whole range of sushi out there is so diverse that you can actually learn a lot about someone based solely around their sushi likes and dislikes. When you think about it, it makes sense.  Maybe you like an Alaskan Roll but absolutely hate Crystal Rolls.  You're really into unagi but can't stand uni.  You like the dragon rolls but don't care much for the Volcano Rolls.  If we take all that information together, we can paint a pretty accurate picture of who you are as a person.  Then, and this is where stuff gets really interesting, we can use that information to figure out precisely what month you were born in. Sounds amazing, right?  Yeah, that's the power of sushi right there.  Take the quiz and prepare to be amazed!
