So my son and I were cruisin’ around the other day. He just turned 13, the day before. That fact has nothing to do with this post, other than I can’t believe he’s already a teen. Wow! Anyway, back to my post. We stopped to get a smoothie. Mine had oranges in it, along with other tasty flavors.
I was sitting there, waiting for the arrival of our frozen delights, pondering something. I’ve wondered about this in the past, I just never thought to ask my kiddo. I said, “You know how orange flavored things actually taste like oranges? Why don’t grape flavored things taste like actual grapes?”
I just know those genius genes came from my side of the gene pool. He paused for one second and said, “Well, I think actual grapes have a bland flavor, so they make it taste a little different to make it more appealing with grape flavored items.” Now doesn’t that just make sense?
Granted, it wasn’t a huge life altering type of question, but I’m glad to have that small little question answered. If I get the answers to any more of life’s little mysteries, I’ll be sure to share them with you here.
