Changing tastes as we age

I have always had a sweet tooth. As long as I can remember, I have craved sweets and never, ever said no to dessert. Then came along Chris, who always wants to have M&Ms or Tim Tams after meals. One day, he surprised me and asked me, “Why do you think you don’t have much of a sweet tooth?” I was taken aback… Then it hit me: in the last few years, on most nights I didn’t have anything sweet (fruit excluded), and though I thoroughly enjoyed sweets when I was having them, the craving was rarely there anymore. Now, most of my cravings are actually savory. Just as I love oysters and blue cheese and other delicacies I rejected once as a child, my cravings have evolved.
