Always, there is this reaction which you are required to give, when someone makes you taste something... Never say YIKES at the first go.
It is not always that we can judge the taste of a particular food, at just one go.
If you sit back and think, you will be able to recollect many such foods that you did not like at all the first time you tasted them... Skeets doesn't know the logic behind this... All she can guess is... your taste buds are adjusted to like what you love to eat. The rest of the stuff, i.e. what your taste buds reject at one go...well.. you never know you might just develop a taste for just about anything. Skeets did... for a few new flavours of wafers, for bitter gourd, for yellow lentils (though Skeets still likes to tell herself she doesn't like them) and for loadza stuff that she can't remember.. not right now..
This also stands true in case of cuisines different from one's own culture. The key to developing a new taste is the art of appreciation.
