Yes, don't fall into this trap that my wife and I did. One day I would taste something, say lemon Gatorade, and it would suit me so I would tell my wife to go get me some and she, being so desperate for me to drink anything, would buy an excessive amount only to find out the next day that I couldn't stand lemon Gatorade. We ended up giving a bunch of stuff away post Tx. It is amazing this gift of taste we are born with and it's equally amazing how quickly this Tx can ruin it.
