Have you ever had the memory of a taste reappear randomly?

I just tasted something I can’t have eaten for ten years. Never had that happen before. How about you?

Smells, yes, but not taste. Of course, taste is a huge component of taste, so they’re close.

Yes but it’s really weird. Something has to trigger it and then it’s so strong as to be happening in real life. It happens all the time.

Yes, it happens to me once in awhile. But, the taste is faded compared to an actual one.

@anniereborn Sometimes with me it’s super intense, more so than the original.

I suddenly and without known cause lost the ability to smell and taste for 18 months. That totally sucked and it came back as suddenly as it went away and I have no clue as to why.

Yes I have, and usually along with an intense craving for it. As with @anniereborn, it’s never as intense a taste as the real thing.
