I am the SAME exact way. Lemon belongs in very few things... it can freshen up a salad, tastes AMAZING on bacon and other rich/salty foods, and lathered on shrimp cocktail. Other than that, no thanks.

I will always prefer lime over lemon in anything, whether it be water or a mixed drink.

Totally agree. Lemon can have kind of a gross aftertaste especially in cheap lemonade

Try a slice of cucumber in your water. It's a lot more subtle in masking flavor.

lime/lemon have very distinct flavors. when making sauces/dressings, substituting 1 for the other makes a very noticeable difference. tasting them on their own may be harder to discern the difference cuz the sourness overwhelms you.

How can you not like brussel sprouts? They are delicious... I will say tho, I have had some terrible brussel sprouts before. Boiled and over cooked is just disgusting, you need to cut them in half then saute them... keeps them nice and firm and not so bitter/slimy from boiling them.

I haven't had it yet, but I will say.... they do wonders in alcoholic beverages so i'm sure they will do wonders in just regular water as well...

lol imagine if he died from that one glass?

I hate eggplant in all of its variations.

Meat loaf. Wow what a sorry excuse for lazy white housewives to feed the entire family with the least possible work.

Dim sum. I only had it once but man it was this gross chewy mess. Maybe it was the place I got it at.

there are so many different types of dim sum though.

it's cheap enough that you can sample a lot of different items and then just get the ones you like the next time.

i hate kidneys too. one time when i was drunk i walked into an english pub and ordered a steak and kidney pie, thinking it would be steak and beans. i found these big white chunks of **** in it, and because i was drunk i ate it. the next day my mouth tasted like piss and nothing i did would make it go away. then my gf made some fvcked up thai food and put little tiny kidneys in it, and told me it was liver so id eat it. then it tasted like piss for another day.

licorice is fvcking nasty so are regular twizzlers. so is jelly beans, mike & ikes, any of that nasty textured sh!t. jello is also equally disgusting.

limburger cheese. seriously who was hungry enough to eat something that smells like hot garbage? we bought it as a joke to try it and as soon as i put it on my tongue, my gag reflex made me vom and we fed the cheese to ducks.

apples fvcking suck. they taste like water chestnuts but bitter and gross. cantaloupe leaves a nasty aftertaste in my mouth. store bought oranges taste like sh!t, so does any citrus from california. cherry tomatoes are gross- i remember getting these at the salad bar in elementary school and biting into them and that goo shooting into my mouth and throwing up. fruit cake sucks too.

krab. not crab, that fake **** krab. disgusting. stop cheaping out and get real crab.

white meat chicken is garbage. everyone in my family refuses to eat dark meat because its "cheap", but they eat stringy tasteless dry white meat that they cook until its dry as cardboard.

when people overcook asparagus, brussel sprouts or broccoli. it gets squishy and it smells like sh!t. when it smells, it means you've overcooked it!! i also hate when dumbasses boil eggs too much and the yolk turns green and it smells like sh!t.

bagels. wtf? boiled then baked chewy dough? my fvcking jaw hurts afterwards. fvck bagels.

flavored chips and crackers. only fat fvcks buy this crap. doritos, flavored tostitos, idc its all for fat people. flavored chips remind me of fat people and bad breath. beef jerky pretty much sucks too. it doesnt taste like much, and u cant chew it without killing your jaw, and god forbid u ever leave a bag open in your car by accident. your car smells like a rhino fart for a month.

fruit juice from concentrate. NASTY AS FVCK. it doesn't even taste like juice, its like fruit flavored lysol.

flavor ice. goddamn i was tortured through elementary and preschool with this crap. i HATE IT. it tastes like frozen robitussin. i also hate grape juice and those shitty danish cookies that come in a blue tin. and the little crunchy pretzels. UGH. school snacks r sh!t.

2 liters of soda. after you first open it, the soda tastes flat and gross. get cans or smaller bottles that youll drink in that sitting.

chex mix. this includes nasty flavored chips and pretzels and crackers.

croissants. they taste burnt.

turkey in recipes that call for beef. youre not fooling anyone, and the extra bit of fat and calories you cut arent worth it. stop being stupid.

anything organic or free range. its a godd@mn scam. its pretentious, lame and overpriced.

when people use dried herbs in italian cooking, or oregano in their sauce. oregano makes it taste like crap and gives it a dry flavor. stop being cheap and get some fresh herbs. freeze what you dont use thats fresh, and break it out when u need it.

thats all i can think of for now. i do however, LOVE durian, tofu, natto, chicken livers, curry, eating potatoes raw, chicken feet, anything with fish sauce on/in it, goat and lamb, sushi and any raw seafood and a bunch of other sh!t other people think is gross. i basically hate food that people eat to be half ass or lazy, and i hate short cuts in cooking.
Dafuq??? I've been in the restaurant industry for 20 years, and NEVER have I EVER come a across a person who eats raw potatoes.....I have seen people eat onions like apples, but never a potato. You my friend, are a funny dude.

Yeah you're right I actually looked it up and dim sum is a variety of breakfast foods so it can be many things.

The item I ate was I believe called a beef ball. It was basically a giant meatball the size of a softball and chewy as ****. It also had that rubbery smell that beef/chicken develops upon being boiled.
