    What do you like best of salty, sweet or sour and what things are they?

    I just had some heavily salted popcorn. I'm not worried about my blood pressure as it's been real good. I love salt on things lately, though.

    I like salty food but have cut down on it because of blood pressure worries, I have changed from having a sweet tooth when I was younger, to preferring savoury now...

    At a movie theater, a large popcorn with butter in the middle and on top and salt. No too much salt, but enough. Some salt/pepper on many things I eat. I do take a daily BP tablet that keeps the old BP in descent shape. Sweet stuff, well since we are both Diabetic II, a lot of "sweets" have been deleted. Sour stuff? Just a dell pickle now and then.

    I like savory and spicy but not too salty. Once in a great while I'll crave sweet but that's rare. I like sour also.

    I like sweet and salty. The sweet taste of a juicy apple and the salty, nutty taste of crunchy peanut butter.

    I going to go with 'Sour', but can do sweet and bitter also.

    Good Sour foods I like would be:

    Kimchi, Kumquats, Rhubarb, Sauerkraut and of course, Lemons and Limes.

    I'll be enjoying some Key Lime pie here in September...:)

    I like salty, sweet and some sour, like grapefruit juice. I also heard of "bitter tooth" and I know I have that since Brussel sprouts are my favorite vegetable.

    I heard it on one of the cooking shows on KGO News talk San Francisco once. I had never heard of it either but instantly knew I have it.
