    things that don't taste as good when you are an adult

    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 red kola

    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.

    just had a vision of Jim Carrey in me, myself and Irene

    I used to like worms and mud, not so much nowadays

    Golden Nuggets cereal (although the recipe has changed since it was withdrawn in the late 1970s & re-launched in 1999)
    Wagon Wheels
    Jammie Dodgers
    Drifter (the ingredients changed in 2008)
    Walnut Whip
    Yorkie (less chunky = less tasty)

    I loved Special Brew as a kid but now I find it too sweet

    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

    Calpol.

    Bought benylin recently ......that was certainly still as vile!!

    I used to love Venos and faked a cough so I got some

    cocapina fizzy drink (maybe a southern thing from silverspring in folkestone i think).

    Babycham is another example of this.

    frazzles (bacon flavour crisps)

    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.

    Penguins too
