Food that smells better than it tastes

The other day while popping some popcorn, I said as I always say when eating popcorn "This smells better than it tastes". It got me thinking about other foods that smell better than they actually taste:

bacon (I still love bacon, but wish it tasted as good as it smelled)
roast turkey
frying onions

Mind you I still like these foods, but find the smells are better than the food itself.

Anyone care to add to this list?
