why is it that when you eat/drink something you loved as a kid, they just dont taste as good as when you grow up (allegedly).
Tried these over the last few weeks when kids have wanted them so of course had to try them.
Barrs American cream soda
Barrs red kola
nutella
sugar puffs

probably because a lot of the ingredients that were in it when you were a kid have been taken out to save money

They changed sugar puffs to make them with less sugar (and were awful at first but you get used to them). Nutella is still the same to me - better in a bigger jar though as the wee blister packs you used to get for 10p or whatever were hard the last time I got one.

Partly because the recipe has changed and partly because you really build it up in your mind to be something amazing and then are disappointed when its not

I don't know about things tasting different as an adult, but the little pots of Sweet Curry Sauce from McD's don't taste the same if you take them out of the restaurant. Something happens to them as they go out the door, and they are just horrid.
