- Your hand / Blindfold
- Your mouth
- Your nose
- A jellybean

- Block your nose.
- Place a jelly bean in your mouth.
- Record the flavour you taste.
- Unblock your nose.
- Taste again.

Observations: First, when I had my nose blocked, all that I could taste was the sugar. But when I unblocked my nose the taste changed and I could recognise the taste almost immediately, which was marshmallow.
Conclusion: My hypothesis was kind of right. Because at first all I taste was sugar, which was the main flavour (I think) and then when I unblocked my nose I could actually recognise what the real flavour was.
