Blog Tour!!!

Being I have not been posting the way I shouldh ave been for the blog tour, and being I picked this weeks post topic- I present to you, on time and everything- What Foods Taste Like Their Color!

Bluefrost gatorade tastes blue- I cannot explain why, but if you ask me what blue taste likes, it's that.
Tomatoes- ripe garden tomatoes- must be garden or farmers market- are what organic red tastes like- Tropical punch koolaid is artificial red.

I have yet to find anything, other than wheatgrass juice, that tastes green, and I do not really wish to try.

I was rather disturbed by a piece of fruit the other day, as it was orange in color, but tasted yellow...still working on that.

I have always wondered if I was the only one who assigned colors to tastes. I know there is a ...somthing, I don't want to say disorder...neural quirk, maybe? that assigns tastes to visiual things, as well as smell to sounds, and vice versa- but this isn't it. It isn't that I look at blue, and taste anything, it's just that blue has a definative taste.

I do know that for Thor, words have flavor, as do colors. If something is too bright for him, it tastes spicy, for some reason, and we have to give him something to drink. He has also said that his soft blanket makes his mouth taste like vanila pudding.

I just read this entry, and have to say that for me, fresh cucumber tastes green.

The word you're looking for is Synaesthesia, and it's a fascinating phenomenon. I am jealous of anyone who has it, as from what I understand it's almost like having an extra sense.

Many synaesthetes do not even realize they have the syndrome -- or are "different"-- until they grow up. They just assume that everyone can taste shapes, or whatever.
