"Antipático" is for me an unkind behaviour of people, and I learnt "ácido"/"salado" y "dulce"/"amargo", but if everyone agrees on the changes you propose, the list will be edited and corrected.
I really don't mind one way or the other, but I think if you asked 100 people what the opposite of 'sweet' is, 99 would say 'sour'. (The other one would say ¿qué? ). And for me, being unpleasant is not the same as being unkind, but it's really not worth discussing the difference for a list.

Perhaps you should remove the request for comments below the list.

Oh God - I've just asked my wife what the opposite of 'sweet' is, and she went into a 5-minute trance and said 'sweet' has no opposite. Either 'sour' or 'bitter' But she did agree that most would say 'sour'.
