Adorable Kids Try Coffee For The First Time, And Their Reactions Are Priceless

Proof that we were probably smarter as kids, in this instance.

As coffee-drinking adults, we've incorporated java into our daily lives so seamlessly (and addictively) that we've probably failed to realize how much conditioning it took to make that happen.

When you think back to your childhood, back when your taste buds were pure and your need for more energy was nonexistent, we bet you hated coffee.
