Flavor Fatigue: How Cognitive Depletion Reduces Enjoyment of Complex Flavors

We find that depleted individuals show decreased evaluations for complex (but not simple) flavored foods due to a reduction in perceived interestingness that can otherwise be derived from flavor complexity and establish substantive boundary conditions for the effect.
