    The only time I've ever liked mushrooms (or the one time I tried mussels) was when they were drowning in a butter sauce.

    Which explains that. :)

    Pizza is over-rated, fizzy drinks (coke etc) are blinking revolting as are most fast food options (McDonalds, KFC etc). Any shop bought pre packaged cakes (Mr Kipling etc). All vile. Generally sweets are pretty grim as well - in fact, most things with a lot of additives/preservatives are horrid.

    Scones are too dense.


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



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

    I've never heard a truer statement. Seriously, keep your cake and give me ALL the frosting

    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.

    No filling in doughnuts, IDC which filling! Blech!

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

    NO! Custard filled and jelly filled are the best!! Raspberry jelly donuts are my favorite!

    I would like them more if it was like, thin slice of jelly and not rim of doughnut with mostly jelly.

    More doughnut, less jelly. Kind of like if they glazed a doughnut with jelly, but it was in the middle. They might be out there, but the ones I've eaten always have too much jelly.

    I really dislike crab and do not understand the hype around it.

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

    See, this is a thing I just don't understand: If the person in front of me orders something I think is yucky, I just feel happy that they left the things I do like for me, instead of gobbling them before I get to the front of the line. ;)

    Back on topic: I think modern fancy cupcakes, the ones with inches of frosting on top, are revolting. Most of the time, it's not even good frosting, i.e., tastes more like shortening than butter. (I will leave these beautiful but - to me - unpleasant things right there in the display case, where one of y'all frosting lovers can enjoy buying/eating them.)

    I like frosting so much that I will sometimes peel the cupcake off and just eat the tower of frosting.

    Zebra Cakes taste of nothing and disappointment. Eating the coating is like eating plastic.

    The same can be said of most snack cakes.

    Cupcakes are only good if the frosting is buttercream and the cupcake is filled with something delicious. Example: I make a mean Irish Car Bomb cupcake with guinness batter, whiskey chocolate ganache center, and irish cream buttercream. Heaven. I'm a bit of a cupcake snob, so most cupcakes are disappointments. But the ones that aren't, tho...

    Ah yeah, I can see that.. but with a cream filling, the more the better!

    This is going to be unpopular and I’m embarrassed to admit that I like these Entenmann’s donuts. When I was a kid we called them “chocolate wax donuts” because the outside is so waxy. But I grew up right near the factory so we’d get them fresh right from the factory store. Haven’t had them in a while, but I wouldn’t turn one down. nf4vcg0ig490.png

    I wouldn't say they taste great, but I also like them because they taste like nostalgia. Same with Entenmann's coffee cake.
