Witty Wednesday-Taste Buds Game

Your taste buds help you taste all the yummy food that you eat. Did you know that different parts of your tongue are responsible for detecting different flavors like sweet, salty, sour and bitter?

Here’s a game you can play with your friends or with grownups.

First, ask somebody who is not playing to gather some food items without letting you see what they are. Have this same person prepare the food using a spoon or tongue depressor. To get sugar or salt to adhere to the spoon or tongue depressor, lightly wet it first.

Each person can take a turn trying to figure out the mystery food. The set-up person would need to make sure they prepare separate tasting sticks for each person.

If you guess correctly, you get one point.

If adults are playing, you can even mix some foods together to make it harder.

At the end of the game, add up all the points and compare each others answers.
