Let's Dish: Do Things Taste Different on Vacation?

Let's Dish: Do Things Taste Different on Vacation?

My parents recently got back from a trip to Ireland where they fell in love with Smithwick's Irish Ale. My dad was excited when he found the beer at a local market, but he noticed a distinct difference in the taste, claiming that the American-bought Smithwick's was watery and not as creamy or flavorful as its Irish counterpart.

His remarks got me thinking about foods we enjoy on vacation. Was the American Smithwick's made with a different formula, or did it taste better in Ireland because of the experience? What do you think? Have you ever tasted something on vacation and found that it tasted different at home? If so, what was it and why do you think this is?
