Here’s a statement that’s probably not too controversial: The best part about eating food is how it tastes. But for some people, like Adrian Wellock, that is not the case. Wellock has not sense of taste, at least not anymore. After a bad cold he completely lost his ability to taste anything. He’s doing his best to combat the ailment by overloading on herbs to make his food smell like something and hot sauce, which you feel, you don’t taste. But still, it sounds like for Wellock the act of eating a steak is more like chewing on a gym mat. The folks from Great Big Story caught up with him, so watch the video up above if you ever wondered what it’s like to live a life without flavor.
