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?
