    Fudge is not good.
    Even homemade or from cutesy specialty shops.
    Tastes like something that someone forgot to bake, but not in a good way.

    Agreed. I do recall enjoying it on Mackinac Island, but that was likely a setting-specific aberration.

    Send it tome I would happily take care of it for you! 😂

    I kind of agree. It kind of tastes like burnt brownie batter??? I would rather have a spoon ful of brownie batter or cookie dough :)

    I don't understand how people can eat eggs without bread. Except maybe hardboiled eggs, MAYBE...

    Don't you need something to "soak up" the heaviness?

    I never eat bread with eggs (except for a rare egg salad sandwich or with shakshuka or the very rare eggs benedict at a brunch place). I don't find an omelet (veg omelet with a little feta is my preferred egg style) to be heavy at all, and although I need something to help absorb the runny yolk in my over easy eggs, I usually eat them with some veg like broccoli, which does the trick.

    For me, bread adds cals without adding to my enjoyment and without adding to my satiety, so it feels like a waste of cals. If I add carbs to breakfast, it's usually fruit, or, much less often and only if I'm doing a big weekend brunch that replaces lunch, potatoes.

    And see, I don't worry about my underdone eggs because, as with most proteins, I like my eggs "cooked": sunny side up with crispy whites; no liquid in my scrambles; toasty gold omelets.

    Our half-Spanish family loves a tortilla espanol, which is an omelet with potato and onion; you need a little daring to make it because it calls for cooking one side, then using a plate and an overturned cooking pan to flip the omelet and return it to the flame. Our father was a proud expert in this skill. Even here, we go against the grain, liking some color on our potato and onion.

    That said, I have no quarrel with an omelet between a couple of slices of bread.

    All of which makes me think of a funny scene from the 1950 movie "Harvey", during which, in the midst of a comic crisis, lonely woman Myrtle Mae and groundskeeper Wilson take time out to introduce themselves to each other, and Myrtle crowns the event by offering to make Wilson and egg and onion sandwich.

    i don't have kids, so not one to talk here... but I think that foods targeted at kids with "hidden veggies" isn't a healthy way tog et kids to like or eat more vegetables in the long run

    I agree! I cringe at those ranch dressing commercials where all the vegetables are dunked in ranch dressing, suggesting that's the only way kids will like them. Or some cheese advertisement, probably Velveeta that says something ridiculous like "make broccoli less broccol-ish!". Ugh.

    Cake, donuts etc. I've never liked them. Again a texture thing i think. Like eating actual bath sponge. Cake just isn't nice.

    is this unpopular? I LOVE the flavor of almond extract. Some people can't stand it!

    I've never tasted it but if its like marzipan (marzipan is almond right?) I'll hate it passionately

    Salted caramel and salted chocolate. Salt is savoury. Salt has no place in a sweet thing like chocolate. It ruins it completely.
