There are some foods that make my mouth water just thinking about. Thoughts of certain types of raw seafood cause me to make slurping sounds, that my partner likens to eating a raw oyster (makes sense, since it’s the sound made while actually eating it). These types of foods don’t have a strong aroma. A strong scent on these slurp-inducing foods means they are no longer fit for human consumption.
Then there are aromas of food that cause a very distinct “mmm,” a purr in the back of the throat, a sigh and a smile. Those foods I equate with decadent sweets. Freshly baked cookies, cakes, doughnuts…the smells wafting through the air make me crave a nice cup of coffee to pair with whatever it is, and maybe enjoying both while sitting outside, breathing in crisp air.
Some aromas make me downright ravenous. A well-seasoned piece of meat on someone’s bar-be-cue can be cruel. I rarely eat meat from anything with legs, but I do appreciate the smells of a good quality chicken or steak on a grill. Of all the previously mentioned foods, this type would be the closest to instigating a violent act of some sort. Maybe this is part of the reason why meat aficionados tend to be such fans of guns, and shooting things in general.
Take this guy, for example. The smell of fried chicken coming from your car would cause him to break the windows, swipe the chicken from you, and gobble it all up without a care in world about your hunger.
His love of chicken makes him a bit loopy, and causes him to even cluck like a chicken! That is serious passion for food, right there.
