I'm writing an ad for yoghurt. It's about telling the truth about the consumer's new favourite flavour. I would like to say,

You'll need to answer some _____ questions.

They're personal questions that will be asked so I was in the region of saucy or juicy but that's just not sounding right. As you can hear I'm trying to tie the adjective back to the subject of yoghurt.

Not quite sure what you're going for here. I think we need some more information about types of questions you intend on asking. But in the mean time I'll suggest, You'll need to answer some cultural questions. ;-) –  Jim Oct 8 '12 at 7:51
    
Just more provocative Jim. Saucy questions, juicy questions, spicy questions, scandalous questions. –  Warren van Rooyen Oct 8 '12 at 8:15
    
Yoghurt really doesn't have the connotations you're looking for, Warren. Sharp? Tart? Best I can do, but they're not obviously yoghurty words. I think your ad is going to fall flat unless you change your approach. –  itsbruce Oct 8 '12 at 11:01
    
I disagree Bruce. I went with tongue-taunting questions and the ad worked out nicely. –  Warren van Rooyen Oct 8 '12 at 13:03
    
@WarrenvanRooyen What does tongue-taunting mean in that phrase? To taunt is to challenge or provoke with insulting remarks. A hot sauce might be considered tongue-taunting (. . .maybe), but yoghurt? It sounds like a mean, sarcastic yoghurt. I just don't see the connection. Tongue-tempting seems a bit more "in character", but if I saw the ad somewhere in its proposed form I would be confused and walk away. –  Zairja Oct 9 '12 at 3:58

Piquant (“Engaging; charming” or “Favorably stimulating to the palate; pleasantly spicy; stimulating”) is a possibility. For slightly blander words, consider delicious (“Pleasing to taste; tasty” or “ (colloquial) Metaphorically pleasing to taste; pleasing to the eyes or mind”) and delectable (“Pleasing to the taste; delicious”; from Medieval Latin delectare (“to delight”)).

Thank you for your contributions. –  Warren van Rooyen Oct 8 '12 at 10:53
    
Piquant is the only one there that even comes close to what Warren is asking. He wants an implication that is personal/naughty while also dairy-product related. Pretty much impossible, I'd say, but you should at least try for the first requirement (naughty). –  itsbruce Oct 8 '12 at 10:54

Perhaps a construction with a noun instead of an adjective

I would like to ask some questions about your desires.
I would like to ask you about your appetites.
I would like to ask you about your delights.
or
I would like to ask some questions about your passions. (Are you passionate about dairy products?)
or perhaps
I would like to as some questions about your indulgences.
