Are You a Supertaster?

Ever seen Check Please, that Channel 11 show where various Chicago residents go to restaurants and report on the meal? The very popular show is so bad its good, and has provided hours of amusement around our house.

With eating in restaurants incredibly popular, I have been at a loss to explain why people would pay good money to go to a noisy restaurant for mediocre food, far less tasty than a simple meal pepared at home. Now, thanks to the BBC there is an answer: people vary wildly in the ability to taste due to the amount of tastebuds on their tongue. To make sense out of it all, you can take BBC's Supertaster test by clicking here.
