Girls, guys, which taste would you prefer: sour, sweet, bitter or salt?

Apparently there is quite some differences between countries or cultures, in terms of what they like most. For example in some countries a biscuit needs to be salty to become popular.
In other countries bitter is popular, think about drinking bitter lemon for example.

If you could choose between these four, which one will it be? For me sweet :D
  • Sweet
    Vote A
  • Sour
    Vote B
  • Bitter
    Vote C
  • Salt
    Vote D
  • Undecided between the four
    Vote E
  • Other

  • I'm undecided about the four dear brother :/ only because I can't purely just pick sweet alone or bitter alone etc We have the ability to taste all 4 so i would want to use that to my full advantage :P

  • Salt. No salt no life. It's food were all sweet, I'd get tired of it real quick. Goes to sour and bitter too. But salt? Oh it's fuckin life. No salt, practically there's nothing to live for anymore. So if you'd ask what's your favourite, I'd say salt. Most definitely. Not too much. Just enough to make it nice. My favorite taste.

      Admitted, I also love both :D

  • I mostly prefer sour or salty things.

    I recently downgraded my Starbucks order from half sweet to two pumps and that was still too sweet.

  • I am most definitely not too keen on things that are sour or bitter. But my 32 week pregnant self isn't liking salty or really sweet either. If its sweet it has to be naturally and salt of any kind is just yuck although today went to eat at my favorite sandwich shop for mothers day and had salt and vinegar chips and they were tolerable.

  • No preference. I only eat salted popcorn but I love chocolate. I prefer tea but if I have to drink coffee, it has to be black. I don't like things with strong tastes or too much sweets.

    • Yeah, salty increases blood pressure and sweet gives you a lot (or too much) energy...

  • I'm not sure... I really like sweet but I always crave something savory after eating a lot of sugar.

    I don't think I like salty more than sweet or bitter, but possibly sour. :) I like vinegars and limes/lemons

  • I'd get rid of sweet and bitter in a heartbeat.
    Salty is probably my first choice yet sour is my close second. I've been born and raised in Greece, I don't know if that's relevant.

    • I understand... sour and bitter for the drinks, salt for the main course, sweet for the dessert :D

  • you forgot soap. My dog eats it all the time as it's favorite. Even I do not allow him. So soap is the taste back on your tongue.

    • Oh my goodness, long ago during a first aid course they told us drinking water with soap in is a trick to vomit if you've eaten something that needs to come out...
      Eating it would not be something I'd do haha.

  • Some popular snacks are sweet , while others are salty. The other two, not so much I think. :) I mostly go for sweet, but sometimes salty too...

  • lol, I can only see majority sweet or salt Biscuits. One as desert, one can be appetizing. Sour? bitter? yeah, but they won't be the dominant flavor. Usually, it's only a hint. Especially bitter... How can you even describe bitter cookies... don't even remember what it tastes like tbh

  • Sweet hands down. Then sour. Like there's nothing better than some nice sweet pastries in my opinion, and then gummy candy. Maybe some vegan ice cream.

  • Sour as you can put it in many of the foods i eat to make it tasty (soups, meats, etc.) And sour mixes REALLY well with spicy so you have a delicious spice instead of a bitter or gross spicy.

    • I've never tried sour with spicy... maybe because I'm not a big favourite of either.
      I'd take the sweets and from time to time something salty :D

  • Savory like as in a lassangnia or speghetti or the wild flavour of venison
