Hi,

Here is a sentence: "Something (a fruit) has never tasted better to me than it does right now. "
Can I say "Something has never tasted better to me than now"?

Thank you very much.

    No. It sounds odd. The longer version is more natural. Or stop at “better” – This has never tasted better!

    Hi.
    "...than now." does not sound clear to me. I believe you need "than it does..."
    Are you just using the word "something" to fill the space to ask your question? Because the point of the sentence is unclear to me.
    The sentence, "Nothing has ever tasted better to me than this does now," comes to mind as a possible replacement. Depending on what the speaker is trying to say.
    Or, "This has never tasted better to me than it does now."
    What is the speaker trying to say? That the particular thing he/she is eating tastes better than in the past? Or that he/she has been starving for days and so whatever thing he/she is eating, tastes better than anything ever has?
