The Power of Circles in Food and Drink
Humans consistently associate roundness with sweetness.

*** begin quote ***

A plate’s shape might be a subliminal factor in your eating experience, but it’s a significant one. Its design strongly influences how sweet or bitter we perceive a dish to be. Independent research has shown that you’re far more likely to associate sweetness with food served on round versus angular plates, whether it’s cheesecakeor beetroots. A 2017 Australian study even revealed that people drinking beer from a glass with curved sides reported it to taste both fruitier and more intense.

Wow that’s a kick in the head. We’re fooling ourselves unbeknownst to us. Argh!

So, what else don’t we realize?

Time for a paradigm shift. (“shared preconceptions, made prior to – and conditioning – the collection of evidence”)

Argh! Argh!
