Hiya, bit of a weird one but what foods/drinks do you think smell great but taste disappointing?
Like fruit teas, for example....

bread, it smells gorgeous when being baked but the taste is a bit boring compared to the smell,

AS a vegetarian lots of things smell quite nice that I wouldn't eat.
Roast lamb,bacon, and strangely kippers!

Chocolate - I used to live within a winds breath of 2 Chocolate factories - no Chocolate has EVER tasted as good as it smelt on the air sad

I used to live near a whiskey distillary and on a good day it smelled yeasty/peachy.I 'm pretty sure it doesn't taste as nice.

Coffee smells nice but tastes so bad it makes me sick.

Chip shops always smell divine but the chips never taste it I will keep trying though

Fruit teas - always smell of what they are supposed too but all taste the same (and nothing like they are supposed to).

bacon smells delish but always dissappoints, as does coffee.

yy to fruit teas

Celeriac. I sometimes buy it just to sniff it. The taste is very weak in comparison to the smell.

Definitely coffee. Smells so lovely but is just bitter.
