Does it taste different?

When you cut out a certain food or drink from your diet and then introduce it again (occasionally), does it taste weird for you?

I stopped drinking a lot of Mountain Dew (I love the stuff, but with both hubby and me drinking it, we were going through it faster than we could replenish it) and went to Coke and then the store brand cola. After awhile, I was just drinking more coffee with my normal amount of milk and water.

In the last few days, I've had two Dews and they taste.. odd. I'm assuming this is normal when one removes something from their diet. Does this weird taste keep you from drinking/eating it or do you go back to eating/drinking it?

  • Yes, it's completely normal. =) The weird taste you're experiencing is happening because you're not used to the taste anymore...

  • I only take occasional sips of DH's Mt Dew (I'll open a new can and he'll finish it) - and yeah, it does taste weird to me. I used to drink a couple cans a day 10 years or so ago.
