    Because 99% of "taste" is actually smell. If your nose is bunged up and you can't smell then you can't taste either.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Yeah I know, but its still cruel. Had fever, headache, muscle pain coupled with non stop sneezing / nose blowing. And THATS when I get the free bag of haribo. How ironic is my life? Ok I'm exaggerating a bit.

    Also, your tongue can't taste anything at all without saliva, if you have flu and your mouth is dry then thats another reason you won't taste them very well.
