What would you like to do?
What you see and smell on the plate definitely affects the way the food tastes. If you smell something raunchy, 7 out of 10 times it'll taste just as it smells. However, if you hold your nose while taking a bite, it won't taste as bad...almost bland, actually. As for the sight, not so much. You can't smell through your eyes. However, if something looks unappetizing you expect it taste bad...so when you taste it, it more likely will taste bad, because it's already in your head how it'll taste.

Thanks for the feedback!
yes and you should always know to not look at something yummy or youll get hungry
yes, the mouth and the nose is connected, if the nose doesnt like the smell the mouth makes it taste funny and sometimes if the nose really doesnt like it, it sends actions …to your brain telling you to reject it, dont even put it in your mouth..... its a very strange reaction but it is very true.
Yes the sense of taste is very closely related to the sence of smell. Loss of smell drastically reduces the sense of taste.
Taste buds on the tongue only detect a limited range of tastes; sweet, sour, salty, bitter, or meaty. Nuances of flavor depend entirely on smell.
Smell is an important part of taste. without smell you would not taste anything. So if you don't have a sense of smell you won't have the sense of taste eather.
could people taste food without smelling it
Sight can trick your mind into thinking it smells bad, and tastes bad; or smells wonderful, and tastes wonderful.
The senses are all somewhat connected
Yes, it can.
no it doesn't
yes, when you see something that looks really good your brain will try to think of what it tastes like. Also when you smell something good your brain will try the samething.

The sense of smell stimulates salivary glands. As a result, smelling disorders often affect the sense of taste.
I don't know if it was from my prolonged Hydrocodone use or not but... recently I had a problem swallowing and was unable to take my medication for over 24 hours. I have been …on Hydrocodone for years now and when I was unable to take it, I did go through a little bit of withdrawl. I noticed, the next day, that I seemed to be HIGHLY sensitive to smells. My wife's body spray, the dust in my car, my daughter's breath, the E.R. (since I ended up there due to not being able to swallow) and then, eventually, the food I was able to eat, were all EXTREMELY strong smelling to me. Hydrocodone works by numbing nerve impulses so I'm just assuming that after my using it for so long that it had something to do with my sense of smell and how strong things smelled to me.
