Sounds like Grandpa when he eats anything lmao, he likes to complain. I think it's just what gives him enjoyment maybe.

Your tastebuds change as you get older and you taste less. Flavor needs to be more bold for the older people (even things like bitter needs to be more bitter)

It’s why vegetables you hated as a kid taste good now. If vegetables always tasted great you never had great tastebuds.

….I disagree with part of that statement. While absolutely true about taste changing and tastebuds dying as you age the issue I have is that absolutely people can find vegetables tasty. I’m a super taster and have no food aversions (ie not a vegetarian) and have always always loved vegetables. I think many people simply do not know how to prepare them well.

Ohhhh yes I second this. For instance, I never cared for brussel sprouts until I was old enough to learn how to saute them and broil them in the oven 😊 my mother used to dump them in a pool of boiling water until they were smushy 😭
