Didn't Joseph talk about how truth "tasted" good to him?  That was
provocative enough for me to remember it. Maybe he said "feels good"

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, Section Six 1843-44, p.354

Quote (emphasis added):

The first principles of man are self-existent with God. God himself,
finding he was in the midst of spirits and glory, because he was more
intelligent, saw proper to institute laws whereby the rest could have a
privilege to advance like himself. The relationship we have with God
places us in a situation to advance in knowledge. He has power to
institute laws to instruct the weaker intelligences, that they may be
exalted with himself, so that they might have one glory upon another,
and all that knowledge, power, glory, and intelligence, which is
requisite in order to save them in the world of spirits.

This is good doctrine. It *tastes good*. I can *taste* the principles of
eternal life, and so can you. They are given to my by the revelations of
Jesus Christ; and I know that when I tell you these words of eternal
life as they are given to me, *you taste them*, and I know that you
believe them. You say honey is sweet, and so do I. I can also *taste*
the spirit of eternal life. I know it is good; and when I tell you of
these things which were given my by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, you
are bound to receive them as sweet, and rejoice more and more.
