Do you have any distinct foods that remind you of a certain memory? Or the other way round, where a memory reminds you of some specific food? I feel like a lot of foods are tied to memories for me, especially with media, like these certain heart-shaped chips make me always think about one summer almost ten years ago when I was playing Mirror's Edge, and eating raw cookie dough makes me think about Hollow Knight lol. A combination of chocolate milk and buttery toast makes me think of this one time I was at my friend's place (we always ate that there) when she spilled all the chocolate milk because she tried to talk and drink it at the same time :grin: Like she forgot she had her mouth full of milk and tried to say something... Just another little funny memory from ten years ago.

Ooo this is a good one!

There is a certain... style of food that always reminds me of when I first was in university and had to lay low and crash for over a year on a friend's kitchen couch (1 room apartment). We were lazy and broke so we did all kinds of cursed stuff during that time: rice with TONS of tomato paste for the cheap flavor, cheap pasta with pureed tomatoes with pepper, cumin and badly diced onions as a sauce. Raw white bread with cheap vegan spreads from the store across the street with diet coke or plastic bottled water. Instant noodles from the Syrian store in the city.

That always gets me. Poverty-core, or something. Lmao.

Of course, everything that my mother cooks and I can't replicate (due to lack of skill or motivation) always reminds me of home.

Poverty-core LMAO. Student meals are notoriously a bit cursed for sure. My cousin said that during his college years tuna was super cheap, so he just ate macaroni with tuna like every single day. Every time I see the little tuna cans at the store, it reminds me of that lol.

That's so good! Tuna is also super healthy. If I ate meat I'd definitely get stuffed with tuna daily.

oh yeah! once i was watching a minecraft video where the two guys were acting like an earthquake happened in-game. they then walked around to look at the damage done to their builds. it's probably laughably unbelievable now (doesn't make it a bad video though!) but i 100% believed that minecraft earthquakes were a thing and that they weren't acting. that video captivated me, and the first time i watched it, i was eating really FAT sandwiches of hazelnut spread with pieces of chocolate bars and slices of banana on them. a real sugar bomb. and it was damn delicious. i think i was 11.

i still eat hazelnut spread with banana pieces but not as monstruously overloaded

Oh that doesn't have to have been a fake video! There were and are wild mods for that game. Weather 2 for example adds actual tornados that also make blocks fly around, it's super cool!

There's also an earthquake one I think.

Ooh!!! I have a lot of these connections and I think a lot about food and eating... I feel like I don't usually remember what the connections are unless I'm in the moment, cuz I think they change sometimes...

One thing I can remember is like, a very particular type of cheap pizza flavor... Where the tomato sauce is really sweet and the cheese kinda sucks... Sometimes it pops up when eating certain things and it often reminds me of when I was little and would eat those square Kid Cuisine things...

Oh! And mozzarella sticks... Tend to remind me of a time where my dad and I were watching ':grin:omg: You Want to be a Millionaire' (its a dated game show where you have to answer questions correctly) and I had been guessing the questions wrong, mom came by to give me mozzarella sticks and i hadn't felt like eating but begrudgingly accepted. My dad was telling me eating helps your brain in his half-true-half-persuasion way, so I gobbled them down. And was able to answer the next question correctly (it was about what color smurfs are) and ofc at that point I was convinced the mozzarella sticks made me smarter.  :wink:

I can't really think of much at the moment .. Honestly I associate smells a lot more with memories than flavors! :omg:

There is this one brand of ramen with a black bean flavor that I first tried when playing a Roblox game with my best friend at the time! The game was about playing as a sea creature and surviving! I can vividly remember that when I was eating the noodles, I was digging tons of tunnels into the ocean floor :ok: It was lots of fun with my friend! She moved away years and years ago .. Each time I think of this memory, I remember her! It's really neat how you can associate certain things so strongly with the memories you gather! :grin:

I have a memory with french toast - I am a very heavy sleeper and hate waking up, especially when I was a teenager. I had one friend that I would stay over with sometimes, and every morning I stayed with her she would make french toast for us. I never ate it anywhere else, and I've hardly eaten it since. It used to make the mornings much brighter.
We are still friends but we live in different cities now so I don't get to see her much, but whenever i see or smell french toast its nice to get such a sweet (pun intended) memory c:

Do you have any distinct foods that remind you of a certain memory? Or the other way round, where a memory reminds you of some specific food?

I fall into a mental time warp whenever I eat "curry" because that was one of the first things I ate when I visited Melbourne, Australia over 20 years ago to meet my wife for the first time. We had met in 2000 on a Yahoo! forum, but didn't meet in person until 2002. We only had a week together, but I didn't want to go back to the US. Nevertheless, we got together permanently and married in 2004.

Coconut chicken (more specifically, the one from the old Chinese place from where I used to live) reminds me of Mass Effect every time I eat it cause I ate it while beating the game while my girlfriend watched over Discord. This was when we were still in a LDR and hadn’t closed the gap yet, and Mass Effect is one of her favorite games so it is special to me :3 It had this weird saccharine taste to it, very coconut-y but very sweet. They also had some of the best fried rice I’ve ever had.

Playing Mario Tennis: Power Tour on the GBA reminds me a lot of sweet tea. I remember being a little kid and during one hot summer, I was getting through the one big tourney in the game. I wanted to charge my GBA, but I also wanted a nice cold drink, and my parents banned us from taking any food or drinks beyond the kitchen. So there I was, age seven or whatever, bunched up against the kitchen island with the sole free outlet, sipping on my iced tea in a little reused glass Kraft Pimento jar as a cup while crunching on some Snyder of Berlin BBQ chips and playing video games.

For me, it's chocolate Frosties. My grandfather would take us to Wendy's often as kids, and I'd ask for one. After he died, I didn't have one for a good four years. It wasn't until college that I got to have one again, and it immediately reminded me of him and the time I spent with him. I'm still looking for a good copycat recipe so I can make them at home.
