Abstract The influence of bite size on sensory mouth- and afterfeel sensations was explored in two studies in which single bites of vanilla custard desserts were varied from 2 to 11 ml (study 1) and in which series of five bites of two different custard desserts were presented consecutively (study 2). In single bites, size affected perception of thickness, temperature, astringency, and creaminess. With multiple bites creaminess sensations were increased, but other sensations were unaffected. Switching to a second series of bites from another vanilla custard dessert affected astringency sensations especially, but sensations of thickness and fatty afterfeel were affected as well. The results are discussed in terms of the food properties that are possibly involved in oral texture sensations.
