What ho, my fellow nonnies!  Any of you who have been here at BTD Central for more than five seconds know that I have a theory, based on basically NOTHING but my own intuition, that non-secretors have an affinity for sour/bitter tastes.  If you are a nonnie, take the decidedly unscientific poll and let's see what unscientific info it renders!  Weeeeeeeeee!

Sorry, Don, this poll is just for nonnies.  The polling software here at BTD Central does not allow cross-references/sub-questions, like first breaking people down into secretors or nonnies and THEN asking them which tastes they prefer.  Otherwise, I would have done this poll before the nonnie clubhouse existed and compared "secries", as Dr. D. calls ya, to nonnies, taste preference-wise.  That would be a whole other thaaaang.  A whole BETTER thing!  As it is, though, this poll is simply to determine, within the nonnie subgroup, if there are a whale of a lot of us who like sour/bitter tastes or not.  I will have no way to compare it to the secretors' taste preferences, sadly.  It will just be interesting to see how the intra-nonnie-clubhouse numbers break down.

oh my gosh!  u and don are making me feel bad and like I have excluded all the vunderbar secries 'round hea from something, but I thought that it would be okay here in the nonnie clubhouse to ask a nonnie-only question/have a nonnie-only poll.  This is in the name of SCIENCE, dag nub it!  SCIENCE!  We cannot let our personal feelings get in the way here!

You secries are veeeeery welcome to post in the thread, though, and to read it and also you should know that us nonnies--and I think I speak for the majority of nons worldwide in this instance--are soooooooo jealous of your ability to secrete and eat stuff and all that thar good jazz, so anytime you feel left out of the clubhouse, you just think smugly to yourselves..."yeah, but I can SECRETE up a storm...in fact, I'm secreting right now, baby!"

You could have had options like, I'm a nonnie and love sour/bitter tastes and I'm a secretor and love sour bitter tastes, etc.  We can't see the poll results if we don't vote.  Maybe post the tallies every so often, so we can get more insight into the nonnies.  But I like sour/bitter tastes myself and am a secretor, so at least you don't have a monopoly on it.  I miss having pickled foods.

If the poll was broken down a bit more finely, I would have voted 4 on a scale of 1-5 -- like 'em for variety, but not absolutely nuts about 'em.

If there were no sour/bitter tastes available to me, then I might well be craving them.  But for sour, there's all kinds of fruit, especially lemon juice.  And for bitter, there's dandelion greens and chocolate.

I like sour/bitter taste in the natural foods.  Not the candy department at the corner store up the street.  I was soooooo sad when vinegar was an avoid.

I always thought that I hated sour and bitter taste. In fact my yoghurt, for example, always had to come with loads of sugar, otherwise it was inedible. The other day I bought some yoghurt, mixed my fruit in it and nothing else and at a certain moment I was eating yoghurt with nothing in it. Just plain and it was a sour, but I liked it. Wasn't bothered by it at all. Guess my tasts buds have changed, or rather are more in tune to what I eat. Instead of covering the taste of everything up with sugar or fat.

I am a taster bordering on non-taster.  I think that plays an important role.  I would love to see several new polls including one for secretors only.  Super tasters would be more likely to hate anything that was bitter or sweet.  Without the taster/supertaster/nontaster information, I think the poll won't work as well.

I googled "cruciferous taste bitter" because I'd heard that some people (esp children) find the taste of brussels sprouts, broccoli, etc quite bitter, and the "supertaster" information came up--which I was about to ask you about, Vicki!  Here's the site I found:
http://www.canoe.ca/HealthMayeMuskColumns/020115.html

I love sour--always have.  I'm not as big a fan of bitter.  I was definitely a supertaster as a child.  And I clearly grew out of it, because brussels sprouts used to make me, literally, choke, they were so bitter.  I didn't like dark chocolate either.  Now, nothing.  And I love dark chocolate. And broccoli. This apparently is not unusual.

So parents of supertasters, don't despair!  First, your kid might really find broccoli unbearably horrible tasting; they aren't necessarily just being difficult.  Second, they very well may grow out of it.

I saw a report a few weeks back that people who like cauliflower are more likely to have weight problems.  They think it has to do with that taste thing.  Maybe we can't taste things that many would consider bad, so eat more, maybe need for taste not satisfied.  Makes some sense, but when older people lose their sense of taste they tend to eat less.  Whatever the real cause, I am one of those that like cauliflower and I definitely have weight issues.

WOW, I’m a Super Taster.  I learn something new every day.  When everybody tells me how great it will be that I can taste foods more sharply after I stop smoking, I cringe.

You mean those things don't taste bitter to everyone?  Maybe a little bit?

Vicki -- Would tell us how much bitterness you taste in some of the foods listed in the article?

I would say that all of them taste bitter to me, but some more than others.

I enjoy the combination of bitter with other flavors in a not-too-sour grapefruit or a bar of semi-sweet chocolate.

I definitely do not care for brussels sprouts, dry wine, sharp cheese, or bittersweet chocolate.

I'm the odd nonnie out here!  For 41 years I was addicted to sugar!  LOVED sweet tasting things and couldn't stand anything sour.  Yech!

Have to admit though since being off sugar for a little more than a year, my taste buds are changing.  Not enough to vote that I love sour/bitter things, mind you, but they are changing.  I was eating some romaine lettuce the other day with some lamb chili on top and I noticed that the lettuce actually tasted sweet to me.  I couldn't believe that the sugar cube poppin' kid actually thought LETTUCE tasted sweet!  Wow, my tastebuds sure have come alive!


99.8% sure I'm a Nomad.
