but I just had to post this. My daughter has the most amazing taste buds... her little brother talked me into buying his brother and sister a piece of taffy the other day... when I picked up my daughter from school I gave her her piece straw berry cheese cake flavored... wrapped in a plain white wrapper.she popped it in her mouth and chewed about twice and says " yay! straw berry cheese cake" as far as I know she has never even had strawberry cheese cake taffy. she's 8 ...is it normal for a child to have tastbuds like that. any one else have kids like that?

Has she ever had strawberry cheesecake as a dessert?     We think that dd is a super taster which means she will only eat certain foods.  She can tell the difference between 2 foods which are the same but different brands.

Yes she has had cheesecake in several forms its one of her favorite desserts. Your daughter can really tell the difference in brands that is really impressive. I find that my daughter tends to like more " grown up" foods than most kids... Is that true with yours as well

Some have more sensitive tastes buds the most common variety is tasting the after taste of fake sweeteners, I taste random bitterness
