    Well, Noreen got 3 disagrees for saying she hates sweet pickles. I'm assuming she probably does hate sweet pickles! ;-)

    My favorite "pickle" is more of a cucumber kimchi, It's sweet, salty, sour and spicy all in one! But yeah bread and butter pickles are weird to me, They're like dessert pickles!

    I don't get why people like pickles. All I taste is overwhelming sourness.

    However, I am also a supertaster, so that may play into it.

    I'm generally neutral on pickles - I'll eat them if they're there but I don't go looking for them. The exception is really garlicky crisp pickles, so garlicky they cause a little extra pucker - addictive. I probably reek of garlic for days after the rare occasion I treat myself to a jar :lol:

    I have a super controversial opinion, One I've literally never met another soul who agrees with me. I. Hate. Pasta. There's a small amount I can stomach if I have no other option, but pasta/noodles are dead last on my food hierarchy. I've tried fresh, homemade. Different kinds of sauces, soups...No I just really hate something about pasta, Always have.
    Ironically I'm not a picky eater, I love all kinds of oddities and weird things. But I draw the line at pasta that is universally adored :D

    Gnocchi is surprisingly fine though, Even if that's closer to the dumpling family.

    I sympathize.
    I just don’t love pasta. People talk about Mac and cheese being the ultimate comfort food. No thanks. I just don’t enjoy eating cardboard, no matter how you dress it up. I don’t like the gnocchi I’ve tried. I know you can get all kinds, so some other kind might be ok. I do love southern dumplings. The light, fluffy steamed ones, served over meat, veg, and yummy broth.

    My father loathed pasta. And rice.
    When my mother made pasta bolognaise, she would pour over the meat sauce over some potatoes for him.

    @g2renew I’ve only used the recipe for split pea soup from The Joy of Cooking. Beyond delicious! Even my kids loved it. Of course, it is green colored and sadly, my kids would refer to it as horse vomit. Oh, are we having horse vomit tonight? Always the comedians. As an aside, I don’t think anyone in my family has actually has seen horse vomit.

    Not to derail the topic, but horses are incapable of vomiting. This is why colic can be life-threatening for them.

    "The more you know..." :smile:

    I was debating if I was going to put this out there. Thanks for posting it!!

    re: pickles... only refrigerated pickles are good! Anything shelf stable is vile.

    I don't like fresh fruit on my ice cream (including bananas).
    I barely tolerate frozen fruit in ice cream (i.e. strawberry ice cream).

    We should start a sub-category..."unpopular opinion because of where I live.."

    For me, that would be that I don't like Italian beef sandwiches or deep-dish pizza.
