Researchers have created the “meta cookie” — a plain, tasteless cookie that can “flavor-shift” with the aid of a headset that modifies your perception of the cookie with image-overlays and scent control. This headset can make you think you’re eating any type of cookie, while, in fact, you are eating the a plain one.
Can we please get a sample of this life-changing invention? Now they just need to design a helmet that makes us think rye crackers are ice cream. Just think of the calories we’d save by noshing on Wasa bread and thinking it was a big hunk of chocolate.
