Well, I quit the quiz when coffee wasn't a choice for breakfast. Total waste of those few minutes.

I looked at the quiz, but only three items, fish, poultry and tomatoes, were things I ever eat. I'd never even heard of about a third of the items. The foods I really hate, liver, asparagus, parsnips and lutefisk, weren't even mentioned.

Wow, I'm 22 at heart. That's 30 sum years off! I love extreme foods and have always felt liberated by not having to eat what my parents wanted to eat!

I got 38, ten years below my age.

I didn't even know what many of the items were. Battenberg cake? Rambutan? Maracuja? Cherimoya? Valençay? Two-buck chuck? The list goes on...

I'm 68, but they said I'm 38.
LOL

Me too as far as liking all when I'm suppose to hate one. I scored a 70. I like fruitcake, incidentally. Doesn't make a whole lotta sense anyway, the logic of the questions and age results.

Two-buck Chuck is the cheap wine ($2) from Trader Joe's. It's actually a bit more in Virginia. I think it's $2 only in California. I have no idea what the other stuff is.

Last night I was 22 and drinking beer, tonight I'm 70 and eating soft foods like soup. Hate beer, don't like soup, and am somewhere between those ages.

My results:

YOU GOT:
70
The foods of your youth no longer satisfy. Maybe your formerly cast-iron gut can no longer digest the spices that once thrilled you - or maybe never did. You prefer soft, wholesome foods to gambling on blood-red steaks. You'd rather dig into a nice bowl of soup and half a sandwich than a rack of ribs or side dishes you can't pronounce. You are 70 years old and generally more concerned with healthy eating and extending your life than adjusting to the latest flavor fad. Enjoy your retirement - and that soup!
I got 70 also. I am 61. They seem to equate loving steak, pork and bacon with youth. They pretty much say that right here.

I think they are assuming that people don't eat steak because they are toothless. Interesting. I eat at some very trendy restaurants and steak is seldom on the menu.

In fact, I don't know many people under 50 who prepare or eat steak. Weird criteria.

Also, I have never heard of most of those fruits. Ever. If I tasted them, I'd probably like them.

Same. I have never heard of any of those. I thought "two buck chuck" was a cut of meat. Battenberg? A type of lace.

Where did they come up with this stuff?
