A matter of taste

I've never read the Newberry Award winning book Because of Winn-Dixie (by the same author as The Tale of Desperaux!) or seen the 2005 movie (directed by Wayne Wang!). Apparently Archer's class did both. I really like this writing assignment his teacher came up with, and his answer isn't bad either.
In the story Because of Winn-Dixie, the Littmus Lozenge tasted both sweet and sad. Describe what it might taste like to you. Then draw a picture.

My litmuss lozenge tastes like root beer & strawberry & something sad. My something sad is melted ice cream. Ice melts and turns into water, and I love ice cream. I love chocolate the most. It's sad when my ice melts. Is it sad when your ice cream melts?

Oh, I love that book. And I don't even like dogs. :) It's worth a read.
