Question of the day (16th July).

Hi people! 🙂

Is there a medicine you actually like the taste of?

My answer:

I have real problems with a lot of oral medicines, if there’s such a thing like taste hypersensitivity I probably have it. 😀 But yeah, there are some medicines that I like the taste of. I like Strepsils honey & lemon lozenges, and also lozenges called Holinex, I did a quick Google search and it appears like they aren’t really popular or even available in other countries very widely but they taste sort of similar. I also briefly took some really yummy medication for allergy as a kid but don’t remember it’s name, but you had to put it under your tongue. Also when me and Olek were ill with colds or such we were often prescribed Eurespal (which seems to be generally called Fenspiride or Servier in other countries) in syrup, and that was pretty good too, even though normally I absolutely hated most of the flavoured syrups for kids as they’re so sickeningly sweet and gross and have really strange texture, and I hate other flavoured medicines that are kid-friendly like all the multivitamins, kids probiotics, I don’t remember what else there is, but generally they’re yucky. Oh okay I did like one multivitamin that I remember was orange-flavoured and a little fizzy, but all the others I’d ever tried were awful though the majority of kids I knew liked them and I knew some that even were happy to eat such things as casual sweets.

How about you? 🙂

Question of the day.

Hi people! 🙂

Are there any food combinations you hate?

My answer:

I think quite a few, but what comes to my mind right now is that I hate the combination of spicy with sweet. I love love love spicy food, spicy condiments etc. and I love a lot of sweet things as well, but together they taste gross. I hate things like chocolate with chilli, or sauces that are kind of both sweet and a little spicy, or some crisps are like that too, spicy with a bit of sweet-ish flavour, it’s yucky. If something is spicy, then I want it to be really spicy, and not something in-between. Similarly, there are probably even more things that are both spicy and sour/vinegary, especially crisps or sauces/ketchups. I really like things that are really really spicy, and when for example I want to buy a hot sauce for something, I know a couple that I know are really good, but when I buy something new that I haven’t tested before, chances are quite high that, instead of being spicy it’ll only be spicy-sour or spicy-sweet. My Mum dislikes spicy-vinegary things as well, generally some people say though that I’m weird, because lots of things aren’t spicy enough for me, even if they don’t contain any taste combinations like that, haha, so perhaps indeed my perception is different or something.

You? 🙂
