You know what I like?

I like the core part of a cabbage. The upper part of it is soft and tastes like kohlrabi it's delicious and most people throw that poo poo out. Not me though.

Please explain how refusing to put ketchup on my sunny side up eggs makes me “callous”.

Also I don’t “get” dipping sauce. You already have sauce. It’s on the pizza. People that need to dip their already unhealthy food into a cheaper sauce that is just going to overpower all the flavour are weird. Why do people do this?

I'll be honest, I had no idea "I don't drink water" was 'a thing' until reading this thread.

Sure random people here or there, way too many people with diabetes from drinking too MUCH soda, juice, beer, whatever, absolutely an issue. Yep.
Flat out a good chunk of the populace saying "nope" to drinking water, period? gently caress me, that's nuts. Like...what the gently caress, drat

e: also those orbitz things were pretty nasty. overly sweet and chunky. I think the first one I had, I had warm from sitting in a car too long though, if I remember right so it was like, hot chunky tapioca syrup water. Yum-O.

Hey we cooked this delicious fish meal but oh-ho-ho-ho its chockfull of hundreds of tiny dagger bones, broken randomly as the meat cleaver smashed through them, so you must chew each bite with care and precision lest your mouth become like a hunted whale. Take them out before we cook them? Preposterous, the bones contain the ~flavor~

Everytime they order fish they ask "why do you eat so slow? Do you hate fish???"

You ever notice that no one else who eats fish is constantly choking or bleeding from the mouth?

Also you're statistically as likely to be a "non-taster" as you are a "super-taster". these things are physically testable. Supertaster is a word that gets thrown around by picky eaters in the same way that picky eaters throw around things like food allergens and gluten sensitivity. It's a cool thing to say to explain why you're just being picky.

Which isn't to say for sure you, specifically, are or aren't or that food allergies and gluten sensitivity don't exist. They do. It's just that way, WAY too many people just love to feel real special about why they're picky.

We JUST had like a 30 page hot sauce thread full of great sauces that specifically were NOT "DEVILS FELCHING DELIGHT rear end RAZOR ABORTION TONIC" style names, with great flavors, too. Hell I got my not so spice-loving wife addicted to a Guatemalan green hot sauce that tastes like cilantro, roast green peppers and good olive oil. We've gone through 2 bottles of it already. Obviously that is pointless hot sauce braggadocio though. Clearly.

People are just willfully ignorant when it comes to poo poo and THAT, I think is what gets me going about picky eaters.

"I don't like fish, did you know that every fish tastes like rotting carp baked in a trash can on the side of a highway? Well it does now. All of it."
"Hot sauce? Actually anything over a certain threshold IS pointless and tastes like nothing, I've tried them all."
"Cheese is bad. All of it. It all tastes the same and sucks."
That kind of poo poo.

Question for the thread, since I wanna keep expanding my veggies options: what the hell do eggplants taste like? I've been avoiding them for years because I hate summer squashes so much, and I was worried that they'd taste similar. If they do not I should pick one up and give it a go

Well,

Eggplant tastes pretty similar to zucchini, as a general rule.
However, let's say you sautee both of them plain, in just a few drops of oil. Zucchini will take on a 'greener' flavor, like a fresh green bean. Eggplant takes on a slightly more earthy, buttery note. That's why you see it used as a substitute for meat in eggplant parm, and turned into a hearty dip/spread in babaganoush. It has a vegetal, but almost brown buttery flavor to it depending on how it's prepared that Zucchini never really takes on.

e: I'm also kinda weirding out over the person who said the 'smell of cream corn' got to them. I'd love to know what happened there, because, cream corn is literally corn cut off the cob mixed with cream and butter, salt and pepper. It shouldn't 'smell' like anything, really. I mean, if you eat corn on the cob and put butter on it you're like 2 steps away from cream corn.

I wonder if people who get on the "don't be a picky eater" high-horse realize that parents can seriously damage their children by making them eat poorly prepared foods that they aren't interested in eating, and also by forcing portion sizes upon their poor babies that are inappropriate?

I still occasionally throw my elderly, broken down, practically dead parents shade for having forced me to eat adult-sized portions of crudely boiled cruciferous vegetables until I got big enough to say "come and make me."

I can honestly say there's nothing one could ever do that would get me interested in broccoli or cauliflower. I can only stand cabbage if it's in a stir-fry or maybe kimchi. Green beans can eat a dick. I like raw carrots but if you cook them you can lick my balls.

Don't force your kids to eat stuff.

Great.

I wonder how many people actually have the 'cilantro tastes like soap' gene, or how many people taste it as is, and just aren't expecting "strong, very vibrant herb flavor" and just say "nope, that's me, that's soap I'm one of 'em".

I mean, on its own, it IS a strong tasting herb, like grabbing a hunk of parsley and basil together and eating it plain mixed together, strong. Still, douse my mexican and asian dishes with it, please. And, for those afflicted, if it's way stronger than that, like actually eating a whole bar of irish spring or something, that truly would blow. Instead, just eat the flat leaf parsley and wrap it in a fresh basil leaf like I mentioned, and pretend, I'd rather do that I think, then have mexican style tacos without that kind of flavor profile imo.

e: I've had and previously heard of cilantro pesto, but it's by no means the norm. That's weird that someone would be in an area where they'd not heard of basil-based pesto. Kinda wondering where that is that it became standard, it's interesting.
