    I hate bone in chicken wings. Too much bone in the way, not enough chicken. I LOVE chicken fingers, fried chicken, chicken nuggets, and boneless wings, chicken poppers, and bites. I never got the appeal of bone in chicken wings or bone in any chicken for that matter. The bone grosses me out and gets in the way. I like to just bite into my chicken instead of having to pick through it and see veins and bones. Never understood the popularity.

    exactly why Dino nuggets are the superior chicken app

    EXACTLY! 😅

    I saw the butterscotch opinion and gasped LOL. Sorry my friend I also had to dislike your butterscotch opinion. I feel too strongly about butterscotch not too!

    Fat free and low fat dairy products should not be a thing

    TOTALLY agree! Why are there entire restaurant chains devoted to chicken wings? I don't understand the appeal. They are okay, and if that was all there was to eat, I'd deal with it. I also hate buffalo sauce, so if I'm forced to eat wings, they better have a different sauce on them.
    Yes! The Super Bowl reminds me of the wing obsession. Even as a kid I hated when people would order wings with pizza because I’d just get one bite of chicken and kick the sauce off. I prefer the texture of chicken in nuggets and boneless wings way more too.

    Chicken wings, no. Chicken DRUMMIES, yes.

    Teehee, hence, why it is an unpopular opinion.

    Apparently I also need to add popcorn flavored jelly beans to the list. I used to hate pear flavored ones as well, but that was because I didn’t know they were pear flavored. Once I identified the flavor, I liked them.

    there aren't that many things that taste better with bacon. Asparagus. Quiche. Couple more...but that's it...
  • RelCanonicalRelCanonical Member Posts: 3,587 Member Member Posts: 3,587 Member
    I also don't like custard filled or jelly filled doughnuts. With the jelly, it's more that they usually put too much in, but I don't like the custard ones at all. White cream all the way.

    Agreed!! When I get creme filled, the person in front of me is almost always getting custard filled. No!

    Not quite sure how to do quotes..,

    I cannot wrap my head around your thoughts on bacon, even though I only infrequently have it. Just finished our homemade shrimp and grits (with bacon) for our Super Bowl meal. Super Yum!

    Nah that DOES sound good to me! But I find so many times every burger, sandwich, and even some pastry/baked goods (!) have bacon and people say "bacon makes everything better". While shrimp & grits with bacon sounds super delicious, I don't want it on everything.

    Butterscotch and salmon both got gasps out of me! I choose butterscotch over caramel and I love caramel!

    I'm agreeing with you again but taking it a step further! First there's the gross skin which has all the tasty BBQ sauce, then you have to wade through the fat and bone for meat, and there's two little pieces of you're lucky. My brother is amazing at smoking and BBQing so it's more the meat that bugs me than the cooking. Ribs are another one, fatty with a big old bone. Yes, I cut every piece of fat off even chicken breasts before cooking, not a popular technique!

    No filling in doughnuts, IDC which filling! Blech!

    Scones are too dense.

    Biscotti (at least purchased biscotti) is annoying. It is either too hard or already crumbling in your coffee.

    The only packaged doughnut-like product worth buying is a little debbie doughnut stick.

    Powdered doughnuts should all be banned.

    Once a chocolate covered doughnut has cooled enough for the chocolate to harden they are trash fodder.

    Fruit (not jelly) filled doughnuts are okay.

    Creme doughnuts are horrid. Custard doughnuts are okay.

    Cupcakes are somehow worse than cake which is already pretty meh.

    I think cake is a vehicle for frosting and little else.

    Exactly correct, with the narrow exception of paczkis on the day before Ash Wednesday, which are tasty and which I will have if offered.

Food that doesn't smell good; onion; garlic; most of the middle aisles.

    I have a picky 2-year old and am very very open to suggestions! What do you think is better/more appealing?

    What foods does he/she like??

    He loves bread, cheese, and crackers. He generally loves fruit - raspberries, strawberries, mandarins, bananas, apples, grapes, and avocado - but seems to be getting tired of most of them. He will eat just about anything in a pouch, but that's probably because those are primarily applesauce with hints of other foods. He used to eat blueberries in lots of baked goods, but now picks them out. He will eat muffins, pancakes, etc with shredded zucchini in it. He used to love corn, but one bad experience now makes it food non grata. Won't touch eggplant anymore, even in pesto pasta. Used to eat quesadillas with monterey jack, goat cheese, corn, black beans, and bell pepper. Now picks everything out so it's just cheese and tortilla. Still eats red pepper hummus but is getting tired of it.

    He generally does not like meat or vegetables. Used to eat pig products like pork tenderloin and deli ham, but not anymore.

    ETA: He loves cinnamon pear balsamic vinegar.
