Your Sense of Taste: Discover the real taste of candy

Your tongue can sense about 6 different flavors (salty, sweet, bitter, sour, umami/savory, and fat), but your nose provides a lot more "taste" information than you realize when you eat. Try some candy by pinching your nose to get the "real" flavor of candy: can you guess what flavor it is?
