Generally lost in all discussions about things “not tasting the same or as good any longer,” and I’ve read through dozens if not hundreds of them over the years, is the fact that nothing will really taste the same to any of us over time no matter what. Without getting into a discussion of whether the big bad food manufacturers are using cheap ingredients to make bigger profits, our taste acuity diminishes and changes over time, just like all our other senses; We can’t see as well, we can’t hear as well, and so on. Same thing with taste, not to mention lovemaking, but I digress. So the taste we experience with Oreos or anything else today simply isn’t the same, nor likely as pleasant, as we remember from back then (and let’s not even start on the fragility of memory). In short, the manufacturer may or may not be making some item you used to love the same way as before, but either way, as life goes on, it likely won’t taste the same, or as good.
