Actually, having just returned from Turkey, I can attest that is almost
true.  However, I also discovered something else: my wife really likes a
dessert called Turkish Delight, which is sickeningly sweet (typical of
many Turkish desserts), and inedible to me.  But I found out that if one
eats Turkish Delight while sipping Turkish coffee, the extreme sweetness
and extreme bitterness neutralize and create a truly delightful taste.
