It's fully nonsense. Why not just eat salt ?

why not?
Strange that it's a rarely done, considering how much we like it, isn't it ?

don't try to change subject. The first topic was sweet. I have even change it to salt because of you, so stay with it, OK? Then we can move on.

and what do you think chips are? Just substitute for pure salt. Maybe people don't do that anymore, since they have enough salt from other sources, but animals eat salt often.

"Chips" does not equal "salt". Marine fish do not swim in chip water.

One reason for using "cuteness", as well, is that you seem hung up on receptors on the tongue equaling perception of "sweet" or "salty".

It is more difficult to deal with ( when in that mode of muddling things), when the example is something "cute".

We don't have cute receptors in our eyes, do we ?

and what do you think we perceive with salt receptor? Color of the sky?

Jack, is it now possibly going to be your contention that colour does not affect taste perception ?

In my opinion its all about color... Flowers catch our eye just as anything beautiful does. So I would agree with Winterimp.
