There... I said it..

Everyone and their grandmother loves bacon, they have bacon everywhere I go. Every fast food place is shoving bacon down the public's gullet. It's like a non-stop bacon orgy out there, and I just don't get it.


Now don't get me wrong, i don't actually 'hate' bacon. It just does nothing for me. If someone is cooking bacon, I may eat a piece, or two, but that would be about it. and I certainly wouldn't be gushing over it like i was having an orgasm like some people I know. So like what's the deal?


Anyways, what "popular" culinary things do you not like, or hate, or whatever.

Other popular things I don't really care for:

Coffee - can't stand it
Potatoes - meh, I've only recently (ie last year or so) been able to stomach potatoes, and in small quantities
White Chocolate - my brother loves this stuff, only in really small quantities will I eat this stuff.
Chili - never really liked it, not much of a bean person.

Try it again. I love bacon, it's the best! The first time I tried bacon I thought it was dry overcooked and had no theme flavour, but I tried again and it was meaty and succulent.

Maybe you just tried it in the wrong group dish, or read the rules instructions incorrectly. Any of these reasons could definately leave a bad taste in your mouth and account for your low rating opinion.

RE: I don't like Bacon!

My reflections upon your culinary tastes...

Bacon - What, are you nuts? Bacon is food of the gods!
Coffee - I have come to like the stuff, but I don't love it. Hot tea is still my first choice.
Potatoes - fried, baked, al grautin, hashed, home-fried - these things are great!
White Chocolate - meh, dark chocolate is the best, so I'm with you there.
Chili - REAL chili has no beans! Meat, onions, cheese, and jalapenos, but NO bean!

In short, I think you are on the path of enlightenment, but you still have a ways to go. Especially as concerns bacon - your road to salvation continues to be blocked as long as you deny the heavenly goodness of bacon. Repent, my son, before it's too late!

Only vegans are exempt from the worship of the shredded swine flesh here in Chit Chat.(They can have tofu bacon. A travesty, but still an attempt to enjoy it's sugar-cured goodness.)

I smell an excommunication in the works.


Spoiler (click to reveal)
It's OK if you don't like bacon.

While I cannot begin to comprehend your dislike of bacon, and it's mouth watering, salty yet sweet, slightly crunchy goodness. I can sympathize with the persecution you may now be feeling.

I too have been ridiculed for my food dislikes particularly my dislike of pizza, coffee, beer, bologna, and jello.

On the other hand sir - you are aware of the love of bacon on this site and a post like this would certainly draw the ire of many a regular poster so I think that you are either a self proclaimed martyr or you like to start fires.

Of course anyone who does not like bacon would have to be a deviant in some way so I think I will go with the fire starter.

What would the rest of you choose?

Ok.. I wasn't trying to start a flame war, or get people's panties in an uproar..

I just saw a couple posts about bacon, and I just don't get it. Seriously. I don't. I'm not trying to push people's buttons. Like i said, i don't "hate" bacon.. but to me, Bacon is like. I dunno... maybe cellery, or lettuce.. I don't hate cellery, I'll eat cellery, but I can't remember any time in my life where i said "OMG, I SOOOOOOOOO want some cellery right now. That would be freaking AWESOME!"

I've been buying my own groceries for the past 8 years or so now, and I don't think I've ever, in that time, gone and bought a package of bacon.

Maybe it's to do with my parents, we never had a lot of bacon in the house, the odd time we would. But it wasn't very often.

I was also asking what other "regular" things that you don't like that just about everyone else does. it appears that this protion of my post was ignored by simple fact that I don't like bacon. (except for a few, like the fellow who also dislikes coffee, and doesn't like Jello, or the other poster who doesn't like tomatoes)

See, that's weird. Tomatoes are awesome... I love tomatoes. A nice tomato sandwich with lettuce, salt and pepper, mmmm mmmm.

I worked with a guy who didn't like Ice Tea. Go figure.

Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that's about it.

Yea, I'd say.. Lol

Almost as bad as a guy at work who "hates fruit"

I mean, how can you hate all fruit. I just don't get how this guy hasn't developed scurvy. Well, he does like veggies, so I'm sure he gets his vitamin C from that stuff.

We had a birthday at the office, and the cake that was brought in had strawberry halves ontop, he picked his off and offered it to someone else.

A strawberry?

That is weird to me. I can understand some people not liking particular veggies, but most people I know like standard fruit like "Oranges, Apples, various berries, grapes"

I haven't seen this guy eat any of that stuff, ever.

Ok. This is not a big stretch here, but I only hate one food item. I hate boiled spinach. Hate! Hate! Hate! I can't stand the look, the smell, the texture, and most of all the taste of boiled spinach! Strangely enough though, spinach is one of my favorite veggies if it is fresh. I love it in salads, on sandwiches, in a stir fry or baked into pasta. One of my favorite breakfasts is a spinach-mushroom omelet. But boiled? Ugh! Just turns me off.

I enjoy most foods when they're done right.

That said, I can't stand maraschino cherries. They're cloying, highlight that horrific faux almond flavor, and are the hallmark of bad cocktails everywhere.

Other than that, I don't much care for orange juice. It's not horrible, but I don't understand what the appeal is.

Wow, that's a lot! Out of curiosity, what do you like to eat?
