Do you dislike the taste of certain vegetables like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, spinach, kale, olives, and cucumber? Does the bitterness of black coffee, black tea, or even beer turn you off? Are birthday cakes and typical sugary treats usually too sweet for you? Does eating spicy foods like hot wings and peppers feel painful?
If you answer "yes" to these questions, you may be one of the 25 percent of the population who are supertasters. Supertasters are the group of people with an unusually high number of taste buds, which make them experience taste with far greater intensity than others. They are extremely sensitive to the taste of bitter foods compared to those who are average tasters or non-tasters.
Non-tasters on the other hand find many foods bland. They enjoy spicy dishes, and usually require more seasoning in their food to make it taste good.
Take this quiz to find out if you are a supertaster or a non-taster based on the foods you dislike. This is by no means a lab test, so do take it with a pinch of salt (see what we did there?).
