    When you praise, use "太 adj 了”, when you describe, use "可 adj 了“
    ex.
    (you are eating something...)这个真好吃,太棒了!
    (later you tell your friend this is good) 我吃过这个,可好吃了!/可棒了!

    when you want to say a kind of food is good, 太好吃了 means it is absolutely tasty, you like it very much; 可好吃了 means you think it is really tasty, and you like it. so the level of 太好吃了 is just a little higher than 可好吃了, yet not so much difference
