Superfoods: great for your body, maybe not so great for your taste buds. Cacao nibs and bee pollen are an acquired taste when you’re accustomed to Doritos and Twinkies. So when BuzzFeed asked people to try everything from tiger nuts to chlorella for the first time, many unsurprisingly reacted with some variation of disgust. Superfoods were described as smelling like bunny food, looking like birdseed, and broadly “the worst thing that has ever happened to my mouth.” But most of the people in the video found at least one that they enjoyed, proving the age old adage: Don’t knock ‘em ’til you try ‘em.
If you’re used to junk food, these healthier options are an acquired taste.
