I remember my first taste. I was about 6 or 7 and it was my dad giving me a sip of his beer (It was Heineken). I can still remember that chilled crispy bitterness. I asked for more but he said no.
Michael Pollan wrote in A Botany of Desire about his kid’s first taste of sugar. He said it was a wonderful experience. He also said once a baby has tasted sugar, there is no going back.
