Distinguishing between foods
The other day, Chris and I were in the car and I was passing him goldfish as he drove. He would eat one and I would pass him more. After about 5 minutes of this, I passed him a pretzel instead. He didn't notice, so I kept giving him goldfish afterwards again. He had no clue that he had eaten a pretzel! I have to say, pretzels and goldfish taste nothing alike and pretzels are a lot harder than goldfish, but even after I told him he had eaten a pretzel, he didn't realize!
So have you ever eaten something without thinking and realized later it was actually something else? I know Lauren has - and it involves a Christmas tree light that she thought was a piece of candy, but I'll let her tell her own story :)
