    My boss heated up canned turkey collard greens in the microwave last year. It was legitimately one of the most appalling smells I’ve ever encountered.

    The nice thing about this? In order to get all those eggs you need chickens. So, more protein for you.

    I can’t say there is anything on that list that I have never eaten in some form or fashion. However, I will not knowingly eat mayonnaise. It’s disgusting.

    Also, though not on the list, I do not generally eat anything with vinegar in it (including balsamic, you fucks, because it’s still vinegar). Oddly, I enjoy pickles despite the vinegar in the bribe, but that’s the only exception.

    Possibly unpopular hot take: Mayo and its derivatives (not miracle whip though that is very bad) are considerably better than ketchup. I will eat ketchup but the mass produced stuff is like if the fats who invented sweet tea popularized a condiment.

    If I don't like something I'll force myself to eat it until I do. This has worked with mayo, pickles, mushrooms, etc. That might be weirder than being picky, idk.

    It still hasn't worked with olives. I just can't get myself to like them. I can tolerate them with other things now, but just eating straight olives still tastes gross to me.

    i've never understood the insane distaste people have for mayo but potentially eat many mayo based things (endless salad dressings/dips) or similarly made preparations

    like lots of french sauces are similarly made, we out on hollandaise?

    Since most of what I cook is Cuban/Spanish food, I tend to use green olives quite a bit. I love the flavor they impart on certain dishes, however during the meal I set them aside and don’t eat them only because I feel like the olive itself overpowers all of the other dL flavors.

    Pro tip: I don’t eat any of those things. In fact, when I eat salads I only mix in a little bit of EVOO.

    Nope, none of the above. If eat a dish with those sauces I simply ask for it on the side in case my wife wants to try my food and she can dip her piece into he sauce.

    what do you think the reason is? taste? texture?

    pass on pesto? emulsified oil based sauce much like aioli

    skip desserts with similar preparations? skip everything custard based/icing/etc?

    i'm not trying to come off like a dick i'm just curious where the line is

    Truth be told, I do find hollandaise to just be too much sometimes. It's good but I feel like places use too much.

    This is coming from the fact that I had trigger fish Oscar last week with hollanaise. Was way too rich about halfway through.

    No, I love me some pesto.

    It’s a childhood thing that triggers more of a psychological/visceral/limbic reaction in me.

    With the mayo, one of my sisters used to slather her hair in mayo and then wrap it with Saran Wrap because it was supposed to be good for conditioning her hair. Now imagine living in Miami with no A/C sitting next to a person with room temperature mayo emanating from her hair for a solid hour while trying to watch TV. Even thinking of the smell makes me gag, and I get immediately triggered when I see it on my plate or on a sandwich.

    Vinegar is a similar phenomenon. Except in that case, my mom used to use distilled vinegar to clean the tile floor. I get the same effect because that stank was so overwhelming. As soon as I smell or taste vinegar I automatically gag.

    This probably qualifies as a hot take but I'm here for the Sweet Tea hate. I'll order unsweet tea and add a single packet of sugar to it instead. "Regular" sweet tea is vile, even as someone with an obnoxious sweet tooth.

    A few years back I was having lunch with my wife and kids at some chain restaurant (I think it was Quarterdeck when that was still around). From where I was seated I had a clear line of sight to the little pas through area where the waitstaff rang up checks and where they kept the coffee pots and tea dispensers. Anyway, I watched as one of the waitresses opened up an entire bag of regular sugar and dumped it entirely into the tea dispenser to make the sweet tea. I think I developed ocular diabetes just from watching that catastrophe. I’ll pass on the sweet tea, thank you very much.

    i wouldn't say "hate", but i don't understand the interest in sweet tea. i thought it was a joke at first, but one of my employees recently said, "trying to be a little healthier so i got a tea to drink" and they just got a sweet tea instead of a soda.

    As much as I love southern food (and I do love southern food) almost all of it boils down to overloading added fat and sugars that your brain is hardwired to crave. It's like breaking an egg with a sledgehammer.

    For the longest time I couldn't understand why my grandma's mashed potatoes were so much better than any others I had. Turns out they were about 60% potato and 40% butter and sour cream.
