Personally, I like cilantro, but I do know others who cannot stand it. Their reasoning is always the same: because it tastes like soap. So why does it taste like soap to them but not to me? That question was answered by Hank Green on the SciShow and the answer may surprise you.

It turns out genetics may play a part in how people perceive the taste of cilantro. According to IFL Science, the 23andMe, a genetics firm, analyzed genomes from roughly 30,000 people, discovering that those who think cilantro tastes like soap may feel this way because of olfactory-receptor genes as well as genes that detect bitter tastes.
