AIBU to ask a not-strictly-AIBU question because it always gets better responses than other forums?

Bit of a weird one, but what foods/drinks smell great but taste shit? Like fruit teas, for example...

Satay. Disgusting, but smells and looks great.

I was going to say fruit tea. Smells so pretty, tastes like dishwater.

Coffee!! I adore the smell and every time I try it, it tastes VILE.

MissPenteuth Mon 30-May-11 22:16:29

Yes absolutely to fruit teas. Why is that? They smell yummy but taste of nothing confused

Also Supernoodles. The different flavours smell diferent and are different shades of yellow/orange but they all taste vile the same (or they did 10 years* ago when I was a student, anyway).

*10 years! <cries> I'm old.
