How Our Senses Experience Flavor: Taste

What You’ll Need:

· A variety of food or beverages

· Willing volunteer(s)

Directions

1) Gather three food or drink items that have similar textures and taste profiles. Examples: three different sodas, three flavors of the same candy, three different juices.

2) Ask the volunteer(s) to use ONLY their sense of taste to figure out the flavor or name of the item they are sampling. Volunteer(s) should keep their eyes closed and noses pinched shut while sampling their food item.

3) After the volunteer(s) have tried each food item, ask them to identify and describe the food items they sampled. Let the volunteer(s) know if they guessed correctly or not.
