Watch and Sympathize: Kids Experiencing the First Taste of New Foods


There aren't many childhood experiences you can recreate as an adult, but traveling and trying unfamiliar dishes gives you the chance to recapture one of them: the first taste of a brand-new food. This short video beautifully and hilariously captures the shock, uncertainty and occasional joy of tasting a food for the first time.

Made by advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi for TEDxSydney, the video shows the slow-motion, unfiltered reactions of kids getting their first taste of foods like Vegemite, pickled onion, oranges and yogurt. If nothing else, watch it for the first taste of olive. It's a moment that makes me smile every time.

Have you tried any new foods lately that caused shock, uncertainty or joy?
