I gave up on taking that test. If they had asked what I liked out of four choices, or given us a choice of none, that would have worked. But there was no way I could continue on choosing what I liked least when I didn't like ANY of the choices or only liked one of them.

Even the first question stumped me. I don't like cereal. Of any kind.

I got 70, which is a long way off.

I got 22 and I'm actually 78. It's fair to say that, for me, the test is not close.

I am 56 and got 22. Hmm, guess I have immature food tastes.

Got mine exactly. The problem is I faked it on a number of answers either because "none of the above" or "all of them" were not options.

The negative aspect of the test was off putting. Which food makes me retch? Really?

I also got the ubiquitous 38, only off by 33 years. I also agree that the wording of the questions was very poor.

I got 38, which is close, but then some of the questions and answers were questionable and unanswerable.

Jerky sandwich? (what? how? No.)

New York clam chowder? (Do they mean Manhattan clam chowder, which is actually Portuguese dish via Rhode Island that appeared in a cookbook once as Manhattan Clam Chowder and rarely appears on menus in New York?)

Goat is game? (Goat is a domestic animal.)

Cherimoya, Rambutan, Maracuja? (Um. How do I choose which fruit I have never even heard of to hate the most?)
