As mentioned, I don't like it when I don't like a certain food. I'd like to think I can appreciate something about most things, even if it isn't my favorite. But I have to add another item to my short list of foods that taste like garbage. It is this:
The papaya. It SUCKS, but I mean that in the nicest way possible. I had a lot of it on my latin american vaycay and by the end, I wanted to put all papaya in a giant slingshot and send it on its way to Jupiter. (<-- that is so ridiculously lame. Too bad for you I write blog posts like a stream of consciousness.) Here's why the fruit is so unbecoming:
1. It's mushy
2. It's bland. There's the slightest hint of a sweet fruity flavor but it's so minimal, it tastes more like a cooked carrot that's perhaps been left out on the counter too long. Just when you think it might be possible to ingest some papaya again in the future, there's an unpleasant aftertaste that stops that thought dead in its tracks.
3. It's bright, which normally I don't mind--why would i-- but, going along with #2, it looks kind of like a carrot, when cut up. Or a yam. So it confuses me. Is this a vegetable? And its brightness also makes it seem fun and cheery and gives the impression it might be a delightsome fruit. Not so. It's totally foul, and therefore deceptive, which is probably the worst possible thing a fruit can be.
are there any fruits you don't love? tell me what they are, and why.
