On one side, there are regular foods that we eat everyday - bread, cereal, rice, vegetables and lentils that our taste buds are very accustomed to eating. On the other hand, there are foods that we eat only once in a while that burst with an explosion of flavours. For instance, those who are familiar with Japanese cuisine would know of the condiment 'Wasabi' - a pungent paste that is usually eaten with sushi. Can you imagine if a baby is made to try this strong condiment, what would his or her reaction be? This was exactly the subject of a recent video that surfaced online. Take a look:

The video of the adorable baby trying wasabi was shared by user u/kannichorayilathavan in the sub-Reddit r/funny. You can find the now deleted Reddit post here. It raked in over 24k upvotes and 2.3k comments in a span of less than 24 hours. "Baby trying wasabi," he captioned the video as.
In the short 30-second clip, we could see the baby at the dinner table in her baby chair. "Do you wanna try wasabi," asked a lady in the background of the video. "Smell it first," she added. Then, the lady gave the baby a tiny bit of wasabi to taste and the baby's expression changed completely within a second. She gave a worried look and exclaimed in a high-pitched voice, "Help!"
The hilarious video of the cute baby trying wasabi for the first time was too funny to miss. Several Reddit users reacted to the post in the comments section. A few could relate to the baby's reaction to wasabi. "Children have far more taste buds than adults, and a lot of adults can't handle wasabi," wrote one user while another said, "That's exactly what I like about wasabi. One short burst of heat and then gone!" A few others also pointed out that the video was in fact quite an old clip.
