Sure, there was a time we liked potato smileys, when pasta and cheese was our thing, when we were out for a meal and refused anything that wasn't chicken nuggets.
But now that we're old, embittered adults, things have changed. And some of us in particular have tastes that are so mature that we've really gone and out-adulted ourselves.
If you like any of the below foods congratulations; better start paying more attention to that pension scheme.

While everyone nurses their Starbucks caramel macchiatos, you chug down black bitter Americanos, cackling.
And according to one Harvard scientist, drinking it makes you live longer. So it's literally making you older.

But you are a tiger.
What kid in their right mind would want to eat something that looks like small mutated trees? After all, it does make your pee smell.
Of experience, responsibility and wisdom, that is.
What even are capers?
It doesn't really matter. The main thing is that because you like capers, you probably know about 'delicatessens', 'tapenade' and 'remoulade'.
Look at you - you'll be putting a deposit down on a cottage in the south of France next.
It's a well known fact that as your age increases, so do your masochistic tendencies.
Grapefruit is like eating an orange - but with added pain - and gosh darn do you love it.
11 Tomato juice
