What's going on in my mouth?

Calling all cooking chemists: It's said that the tartness of food indicates it's acidity. And sugar can be used to reduce that tartness. But a sugar solution is pH 7, so it's not neutralizing the acid. What gives?

Ripping TV show season box sets to iTunes seasons?

I recently bought The Twilight Zone Season 2 box set on DVD. I'm wondering how to turn the set of DVDs into a nice TV show series in iTunes complete with episode titles and other information about each episode. I've tried using Handbrake, but all of the DVD chapters are of the same length and it looks really confusing. I have an iPad and would like it to look like other TV show seasons do that are purchased from the iTunes store. Anything super automated and created for this purpose?
