I love strawberries, but I hate their texture. It always makes me gag when I bite into the slimy fruit, crunching on little seeds. So as I sit here, slurping away on strawberry yogurt (the kind with chunks) - I'm at a bit of a loss. The yogurt itself is delicious, but it's those slimy chunks that I can't stand.
In fact, this is the first time I've ever had strawberry yogurt with real strawberries, the first time I've tried a real strawberry chunk in years. And nope, I still don't like it. When I was younger, I used to get the kid yogurt with sprinkles. It was generally strawberry flavored, but I always thought it was the artificial taste that I liked. Now I realize, yep, I like strawberries. Just not the texture. Ewwwah!
Actually, I used to legitimately be afraid of certain fruits. Like peaches, I used to cry (as a little girl) when ever I saw the inside of a peach. It. Would. Make. Me. Cry. Since when do fruits scare children? And watching "James and the Giant Peach" was no walk in the part either.
I guess it's sort of strange, I love strawberry flavored things, just not the fruit itself. The same is true with cherries, pomegranate, and oranges. I love cherry flavored things, I adore pomegranate frozen yogurt, and I drink lots of orange juice (without the pulp).
What strange foods do you have a "love hate relationship" with?
