a simple taste test

Last night, while we anxiously waited for our dinner to cook, 
Elise and I had a little impromptu taste test.  

It was so much fun, we did it twice,
and Elise was ready to do it again first thing this morning.  ;)

I offered Elise three identical little glasses 
of sugar water, lemon water, and salt water.  
(I also filled a bottle with plain water to cleanse her palette between tastes.)  

After Elise took a sip from a glass, 
I would name the taste.  
That was sweet.  That was sour.  That was salty.  

Sweet was a big hit, with salty coming in a close second.  
Sour left little to be desired...
which was surprising, considering Elise usually sucks down lemon wedges.  

Coffee seemed like an ideal bitter taste, 
but I decided it would be bonkers to let my toddler drink coffee after 6 pm!

I can't stop thinking of more "edible tests" for us try:
texture, color, temperature...
We may be doing this for awhile!


  1. Fantastic idea! I'm definitely going to try this with Finn tomorrow! Please blog about your other edible experiences, I'm interested!

    1. Hi Elsa! Yes, it was so simple, but Elise loved it! I can't wait to hear how it goes with Finn. :)

  2. Sounds like it was a lot of fun! I will never forget the day Sixtine tried lemon for the first time...priceless!

  3. Yes, their taste buds must be extra sensitive - Elise has had some really funny expressions while eating!
