Limited Edition Apple Crisp Flavored Yoplait yogurt, flavor review

Apple Crisp Flavored Yoplait Yogurt

We have a heightened sense of smell when we are hungry. Our sense of smell is what allows us to perceive flavor in our food; hence when we plug our noses and chew cinnamon raisin toast, all we taste is sweet, but when we unplug our nose we taste the cinnamon and raisin.
