The power of Flavor

It’s hard to forget your favorite flavor of ice cream. Remember the taste of your grandmother’s soup? More than any other sense, smell and taste evoke memories. Flavor and emotions are interlinked, most likely because of the direct connections between olfactory receptors and the area of the brain responsible for memory. This is what makes smell and taste the most compelling of all the senses. This is the power of flavor.
