i’ve been reading through posts of the past a lot lately. a theme that occured to me (and thoroughly annoyed me) was reading about all of the foods i love.. so many mentions of “wonderful, delicious, amazing, irresistable” etc. i contemplated how infrequently i read any food writer talk about, or even briefly mention, foods they dislike.
i have begun a list.
passionfruit- it makes my mouth hurt and tastes like bile.
papaya- it makes my mouth hurt, tongue burn, and tastes like a sour tropical nightmare. i think i may be allergic though, so my opinion may be skewed.
starfruit- crunchy like an apple or pear, but flavorless and not even sweet. what’s the point?
white bread- reminds me of old styrofoam you find in riverbeds. sticks to roof of mouth. what’s that about?
grape jelly- are grapes even in that? i’ve eaten a lot of grapes before, and jelly has a taste of all it’s own.
tartar sauce- i don’t even know what to say here.
mountain dew- how can your mouth feel squeaky but be wet at the same time?
headcheese- if you know what this is, then you know why i don’t like it.
gummy bears- i want to taste fruit. why do they smell like fruit but not taste like anything?
quinoa flour- it’s bitter, brittle, and dense. i’ll avoid bread all together rather than try baking with this ever again.
mayo- i feel like the world would be different without it.. especially after seeing kids combine this with ketchup in the high school cafeteria to dip french fries in.
lean chicken breast- makes my teeth stick together! does anyone know why this happens? i’m going to research this right now!
raw onions- i had a very VERY bad experience when younger when i was an ice skater where i was forced by a security guard to eat an entire handful of them just before i went on the ice. OMG.
margarine and all butter replacements just eat the butter. seriously. this isn’t the 90’s.
sorbet- i don’t know why, it just rubs me the wrong way.
mechanically separated or processed meats- click here to see video with great sound track.
“con queso” dip- if it’s made from velveeta, don’t even get me started. i guess i also don’t like the chunks of salsa that float around in there, grosses me out a little.
so there you have it. see? i don’t like all foods. i am pretty finicky. actually, it looks like i’m down right stuck up! what a snob!
