Has there been a food you like, thought was delicious, but when you found out what it was made of or how it was prepared you could not bring yourself to eat it again?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26821points) March 16th, 2015

One of my Brethren told me of a man he worked with who hated venison, when my fellow saint took venison chili to work and shared it; this man ate three bowls of it and said it was delicious. When he found out there was deer meat in it he would never touch it again even though he thought it was delicious. Myself, I once was served some meat, it was tasty and I liked it, but when I found out it was liver, I don’t care how tasty they made it taste, and I was done, could not eat any more, and would never try that dish again. What have you ate and thought delectable until you found out what was in it or how it was made?

Canned spaghetti cooked on the stove top at maximum heat. Gross and hard to clean up afterwards. With all that burnt spaghetti.

Canned potatoes are gross too.

Rabbit. Tasted pretty good, but the more I thought about eating Fluffie the less appetizing it was.

I have trouble eating black pudding since I found out it’s made of pig’s blood.

When I was a kid I was sure key lime pie was probably reasonably good for me. Limes, citrus, vitamin C etc. etc. Then I found out what’s in it. I still eat it once in a great while, but I sure as shit am not kidding myself about what’s in it.

Lasagna from Smitties they left it out overnight and flicked the bugs off and microwaved it then covered with sauce and served it to customers.

^ That did not sour you to lasagna forever, or did it?

talljasperman's avatar

Yes. It’s so expensive when you just boil pasta for three minutes and dump sauce and cheese on. $20 for $3 worth of ingredients.

Eggs (unless they come from someone at a local farm stand that treat their chickens right)

Foie gras. I have had it and I love the flavour but the process prevents me from ordering it in a restaurant.

Can I add brawn or brains. I’ve never had it but that’s largely because the idea of eating brains just turns my stomach.

Menudo. I had a wicked hangover one time, and a buddy took me to the restaurant where all the Mexican workers went. I had menudo for breakfast, cured my hangover. Then I foiund out what was in it.

No, no there hasn’t.

longgone's avatar

Yep. Meat.

@zenvelo What’s in it?

anniereborn's avatar

@longgone tripe, IE cow’s stomach.

sahID's avatar

Uh, @anniereborn while that could be, I’ve always heard that tripe is actually the small intestine of a hog. When properly prepared & cooked, it actually can be delicious. When it isn’t, yeah, it smells & tastes as bad as it sounds.

fluthernutter's avatar

Tripe is stomach lining. Don’t think it’s specific to any particular animal though.

dappled_leaves's avatar

Tripe usually refers to the lining of a cow’s stomach. There are other names that are used for food made of the same body part in other animals. There are probably minor regional differences in how these names are applied.

Chitlins, never had them never will for that reason. I’ve heard they’re good but I’ll pass.

And so it goes, you broke the chitterlings ceiling. I don’t care how delicious they were supposed to be, if I came home from school and walked in the door and got hit by the smell of cooking chitlins I did a 180 and went elsewhere.

@Adirondackwannabe Chitlins, never had them never will for that reason. I’ve heard they’re good but I’ll pass.
They don’t have chitlins in the Adirondacks? Well, for what chitlins are, read the aforementioned post.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

No, for some reason they’re zoned out of the Park.

^ I second that utterance
