Many grandmothers fancy just a little glass of wine or some sherry and they're happy out. But the good people over at Observ sat these grannys down and asked them to try Fireball Whiskey, a popular cinnamon whiskey drink in America. 

Now, when they start off, none of them seem too keen to try the spicy drink, and it clearly makes a large impact when their faces completely change. You can even see them wince as they take their first sip. 

But five or six sips later (and a few shots), they begin to actually like it. The granny that took the shot even thinks they should go out dancing. #Standard. 

All we want to do now is sit our grannys down and have a couple of drinks with them!

If you’ve ever wondered why people enjoy the taste of cinnamon a lot more around Christmas time, then you might just be intrigued by what we have to share.

A new study discovered that the people enjoy certain foods a lot more when they are accompanied by sounds or noises which match the occasion.

When volunteers were given a range of odours accompanied by a variety of sounds, they found that cinnamon and cloves – spices used in mulled wine – tasted much nicer when Christmas carols were playing.

When retested with pop songs rather than Christmas carols, neither spice was marked as more pleasant.

The study states: “Certain odours can be matched with specific sounds based on previous experience. The congruent sounds increase odour pleasantness significantly more than incongruent sounds.”

Who ever would have guessed!
