Re: what does Star Trek food taste like?

[quote=Babaganoosh;1952022]I always wondered why the food shown in TOS was always that weird pastiche of colored blocks and stuff like that. Couldn't they take 10 minutes to whip up some real food?

Back in the "olden days" before MREs and microwaves... all those colored blocks were supposed to look like "future space food". It only looks silly NOW.
p.s.- I miss None Such/mincemeat pie... haven't had any since I found out I'm diabetic.
