Thats a pretty interesting question! I know that when I personally am eating something cruchy I like it a lot less if it becomes soggy. Also, I refuse to eat somthings if they become mixed because of some ofthe strange, mushy, slimy textures.

Texture, to me, is the most important thing. That’s why I love sushi so much—it’s a celebration of texture.

My brother’s girlfriend absolutely hates any sort of soggy bread. She has to toast everything so that it doesn’t soak up and mayonnaise, etc. It just got me thinkin’...

Texture is everything! We only taste 5 taste so lack of texture in food would make it so boring.

I don’t care much about the texture really, but I have a friend who refuses to eat things like strawberries or blueberries because of their texture. There are a lot of things she won’t eat but those are two that came to mind.
