Something odd though, I don’t find them bitter ?! They are tasty. I’ve got the alcohol free version and can’t see anything ‘sweet’ on the label. Kinda makes me nervous. But, I guess the recipe would be the same all round, right?
I’ve learned in pyschophysics research that humans are usually distributed into 3 groups: very sensitive to bitterness, moderately sensitive, and non tasters. Non tasters have been linked to liking coffee, cigs, and alcohol more (although certainly not causal). Non tasters are a result of two recessive alleles – I myself am a non taster and to me it tastes a liiittle bit bitter and a bit sour/tangy. I don’t mind the taste. you’re probably a non taster! does coffee taste bitter to you? It doesn’t to me!
