    My two cents from a far away country in Europe:

    * All grilled cheese is eaten with a dash of mayo and ketchup and some cornichons
    * A variation of grilled cheese is to put the last night' leftover spaghetti bolognaise inside the grilled cheese sandwich and then toast it - then dip in ketchup and/or mayo
    * Peanut butter is savoury. Last year I wanted to try an American brand and I was horrified when it tasted sweet-sugary
    * Peanut butter sauce on chicken skewers makes a meal
    * hot dogs are always eaten with ketchup and/or mustard and sauerkraut
    * a perfect snack is piping hot pasta (macaroni will do), with a knob of butter and brown sugar
    * roasted brussels sprouts are staple food during winter time

    I agree that peanut butter (and all nut butters) should be savory. Which is why I hate nutella.

    But spaghetti on grilled cheese?? No.

    I may be the only one that actually likes these. When I’d fall off the wagon I indulge in whatever sweets I come across. They are not the best ever, but I don’t discriminate when it comes to sugar 😂

    I'm the exact same way. :( If it's got sugar I'll eat it. Heck, if it fits in my mouth I'll eat it. :/

    Me too, "too sweet" is like a non-existent thing for me.

    Color of frosting changes nothing, even if you switch from a color that reminds people of flowers (?), to a color that reminds people of vegetables (?), and line them up in a seasonally-appropriate ring, rather than a rectangular phalanx.

    Really polarizing foods are things like: 1) brain sandwiches, 2) barbecued pig snouts or 3) haggis, just sayin'.

    Haven't tried the first two - but I think the thing with haggis is more the knowing what it is, rather than the actual taste, which is not that different really.

    Admittedly had had quite a few drinks before the tasting so my experience may be flawed :o;)B)

    I was amused, when I went to a potluck today, to see "those" cookies: The Lofthouse ones, in the green variant.


    No, I didn't eat them (still ick, to me), but I had some of the homemade chocolate/sour cream/Kahlua cake, and some homemade peanut-butter bars with chocolate topping . . . and those were just the desserts. ;)

    Those are my mom's very most favorite cookies. I think when I eat they seem too sweet but I understand a sweet craving.
    I think at the end of the day where everybody stands should be based on what they want most out of their life and their own self control. For me if I was really craving sweets, one of these cookies would knock out the craving entirely...... But for some people? If they open that package they're going to eat a whole row.

    This isnt an objective enough war. Lol. Everyone is different.

    Probably not food anybody should ever eat though.. . Because your body just goes oh my gosh -oh my gosh -oh my gosh- SUGARRRRRRR *insulin spikes*

    As for me and my house, we must avoid the bakery section.😂
  • I've got a fructose intolerance, and I'm a supertaster and autistic. Yay. So coffee is too bitter, mayo is wrong, mustard is too loud, most hot peppers are too hot for me to handle, no pickles.... etc. I eat my hot dogs plain and my hamburgers plain as well. (I do like a bacon cheeseburger, but not well enough to eat the extra calories most times.) I like sweets but they make me drunk and give me a painful hangover about five minutes after eating them, so I'm largely down to things like chunks of candied ginger in dark chocolate, which one only wants one or two of anyway. I've never much liked commercial baked goods. I'd rather eat my own cookies.

    I'm so so so grateful that these aren't available to me anymore. I legit have no self control around them and I'd eat ALL 4 of those flavors...
