Anyone ever heard of this phenomenon? My girlfriend says that she can taste colors, like that certain colors taste a certain way, and that some things taste like different colors (ex: coffee tasting green) this stops her from eating certain colored food because that color tastes really bitter. She also says that if she doesn't see what she is eating, it tastes "normal" (ex: the lights are off or she randomly grabs an m&m or something)

anybody heard of this?

yea, saw a thing about it on tv a while back, like the senses are kinda mixed together. there are people who hear colors too, like notes are different colors, etc.

I don't remember much though, I'll try to wiki it.

Then she isn't tasting the color. She's seeing the color and associating a flavor with it.

As far as I know there aren't any light receptors on your tongue, but I could be wrong.

ya its called synatesesia or something like that, I had a test prompt on it one time, its actually a very amazing condition, i just remember after the test everyone was like "OMG I wish i had that"
that or shes always tripping major balls

She's only associating a color with certain flavours.......That's completely natural.

like, she HATES green food because it tastes bitter, but she tried green beans with butter and salt any everything in the dark and she said it was delicious, then her friend turned on the light and she couldnt eat anymore because she actually saw what she was eating

I think it's one's eyes playing tricks on one's taste buds.
Like, plugging your nose while eating something blocks some of the taste since you can't smell it. For example, fish sauce (which is short for anchovy extract), smells (and tastes like the smell) like the armpits of a 90 year old who just got done doing sit and be fit all day. But once the smell is blocked by the other ingredients (it's usually used in egg rolls and other oriental foods), it tastes fine, actually quite good.

That just shows that your girlfriend is weird. The brain just associates the color with some taste. BTW, it's all bull**** and I've never heard of anyone who would not eat something because a "color tastes really bitter." It's a whole new level of close-mindedness.

You realise that smell is I'm not entirely sure on percentage but I believe like 60% of your taste. That is why they block the smell although its more of a placebo effect seeing as hell your mouth leads to you smell recptors as well as your mouth just not as direct.

No its an actual sensation as the others have said I believe its closemindedness you have to refuse to accept this sensation I mean yeah is it so hard to believe as close as say heaqring and touch are or smell and taste are? Maybe its an example of heightened senses. Maybe all senses are somehow connected? I mean is it really that crazy to consider seeing as all wind up in the brain?

its not that she WONT eat it, its that certain colors must be connected with certain tastes

its not necessarily like that, its that all greens taste bitter and sour tasting, like green grapes and apples, maybe the first green food she had was one of those and it stuck in her brain like that

Your girlfriend has problems.
