Accepted Answer

all senses are technically connected to each other through brain receptors and neurons. physiologically they influence each other. smell influences taste (you plug your nose to lessen the bad tasting medicine). sight influences taste (red and blue cookie are the exact same except for shape and color, but people will unconsciously go for the red before blue) and so forth. that's why there are psychological reactions to favorite foods, smells, etc, and also why phantom paibs exist
