Subject: What makes food taste good?

Written By: violet_shy on 02/15/20 at 3:23 pm

What are some ingredients, condiments, or anything else that make food taste good?

If I'm eating chocolate(which I have not done in a month but I still remember how it tastes), right away I can taste the cream...my guess is the cream is what makes it taste good. Many people say it's the cocoa...but to me it's the cream.

Hmm, let me think ::)....Pizza. To me, what makes it taste so good is the sauce.

Anyone care to discuss this?

For me it’s the cheese. I don’t like most condiments, sauces, any salad dressings.  But make something plain with cheese and it works for me.

I think condiments such as salt and pepper makes foods taste good, I like it in my eggs or my salads or maybe a pinch on my hamburger.

I think tomato sauce tastes excellent with a nice drink of Pepsi.  Cheese tastes good, but takes away from tomato sauce ans ketchup.  I also like dressing like Ranch with ketchup.

I would think different kinds of condiments such as ketchup, mustard or maybe even hot sauce makes food taste good.

Does anyone like fruit in potato salad?

I’ve never heard of that but it does sound interesting. Similar to pineapple on pizza. What kind of fruit would you add?

One thing I really like is raw veggies wrapped in cheese slices. I’ll sit there with a veggie tray and pack of cheese. My favorite is baby carrots. 1 cheese slice = 4 baby carrots.

One of my friends used to scrape all the toppings off his pizza then eat them.  Then take what was left of the pizza (crust and base) and dip it in ranch.

What's your favorite toppings on pizza?


If I have to pick 2 then it would be sausage and canned mushrooms. Then green peppers and pepperoni.

Something really interesting I’d like to try is cici’s macaroni and cheese pizza. But the nearest cici’s I know of is 4 hours away in Kalamazoo.

I think the ingredients (or other content in food) make it taste good. In some cases it could be the spices, which are ingredients themselves.

The way they're mixed could also make the food as a whole taste good.
