Morning Start: Why does airline food suck?

Your morning start for Friday, January 31, 2020.

Make sure to have your umbrella handy this weekend…

Fun Fact of the day: All together now, “Airplane food sucks.”

Delicious has never been a word used to describe airplane food.

A study conducted by students at the University of Manchester concluded that the annoyingly loud background noise from the airplane’s engines disturb our senses and make us enjoy our food that much less.

The researchers fed 48 blindfolded participants a variety of foods from biscuits to rice crackers to cheddar cheese. At the same time, headphones either blocked out noise or provided various levels of white noise. The subjects then rated the intensity of the flavors and how much they liked or didn’t like them. Who knew noise levels could have an impact on how we enjoy our food?!
