LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The heart wants what it wants, but a new study says our noses know why.

Researchers from the Flour Advisory Bureau say toast is overwhelmingly the breakfast of choice for most Britons. But it wasn’t the taste of the bread that notched such high praise; over three-quarters of respondents say they love toast because they “found the smell comforting.”

The research, which the FAB says was done independently, suggests that we have a love affair with our food that isn’t always based solely on our taste buds.
