Just wondering.

Are there times when you are more sensitive to particular flavors than at other times>

I found one day that I tasted ginger in a favorite brand of liverwurst. It was a revelation. I then started adding ginger to my liver pate recipe and it was a wonderful addition.

Today, as I was eating a Snickers bar, I tasted cinnamon. Bit after bite, I tasted it in the nougat. I've never tasted it before, but it's there and really is an important component of the flavor profile of Snickers, though not a pronounced flavor.

Anyone else have such experiences?

Is there no one who has experienced this phenomena? And if so, what was your aha moment?

I have read somewhere that at certain times of the month some women can perceive smells and tastes differently. Can't say I ever noticed myself.

Have you tasted the cinnamon in another Snickers bar since? \Perhaps it was a mistake in the manufacturing and the cinnamon sneaked in unnoticed.
