Recreating childhood flavors in strange ways

Okay, I’ll admit it: When I was a kid I would occasionally try a sip of my dad’s beer. (Usually, it was Budweiser) I didn’t like the way it tasted then, and I don’t like the way it tastes now.

Just a few minutes ago, I took a sip of a Monster Energy Drink while sucking on a Wintermynt Blast breath mint.

Those two items together sent a taste-sense memory rushing through my brain: I was 12, and was making a disgusted face after just having tasted my dad’s beer.

blech – I won’t be doing that again.
