Hypotheses/Aim(s) of Study Two hypotheses were tested in the present experiment. We first examined whether an underlying tendency to move the tongue in response to the taste of sugar can override the acquired motivation to reject a drink that is excessively sweet. Second, we tested whether strong sweetness can elicit signs of positive affect that the learned liking for moderate sweetness does not evoke.
