I'll try to make this as brief as possible:
Dissolved two teaspoons of table sugar (sucrose) in about 250ml water. Sipped it, and as expected it tasted sweet. I let the rest of it sit in the freezer overnight. Next day, I took out the frozen sugar solution and, well, licked it.
Surprisingly, I could barely taste any sugar in it. It was almost as though I was licking regular ice.
Why is it that I'm not able to perceive any sweetness here?
I was under the impression that since the solution, being a homogeneous mixture of sugar and water, was sweet, the "popsicle" I made ought to taste sweet too (since the sugar would be evenly distributed over the volume of the ice).
