salt, sugar, spicy, bitter and one more. If there is a
strong oder, like cigarette smoke or
car exhaust or
fire, I still smell that sweet metallic smell. I can't distinguish what it is but I do know that there is an odor. If I'm with someone, I'll just ask what I am smelling. As to food, I just try to enjoy the texture and the memory.
Tasting spices, I have gravitated to sweets and snack on a lot of junkfood. That has led to a weight gain that I now have to control.
