Yes indeedy !! The temperature and texture of yummy food also contributes to the overall flavour. What is weird though, is ones sensitivity to saltiness and bitterness seems to increase as food cools ,where as sensitivity to sweetness increases with heat. For instance, a nice sexy piece of choccy has little flavour when it's cold, it tastes fine at room temperature and is pretty yuckilly sweet and unpleasant when hot or half-melted. Did you know that ?....I didn't !!..but I do now'Men are the same as women...just inside out !'
