My unpopular food opinions

Hello beautiful people, it’s been such a long time. This blogpost has been sitting in my drafts for the longest time, I decided to share it today. Enjoy.

For a while now, I realized that I have uncommon or unpopular food opinions. I’m not one of those picky eaters, I can eat pretty much anything but that doesn’t mean I like it. I want to share some of my opinions about certain popular and well-liked foods. 

Disclaimer: This is an opinionated piece. I might express strong opinions about something you love but at the end we’re still friends🙇.

1. Mangoes are 😷, I don’t know the adjective to qualify mangoes. Let me just say, I don’t know how people enjoy mangoes. They taste TERRIBLE. I’ve eaten different species of mango but I still don’t like it.

2. Turkey >>> Chicken. Yes, you read that right. I don’t like chicken at all especially when it is boiled. I prefer turkey, fish, beef, even goat meat.

3. Strawberries have a terrible taste. I don’t know how something that looks so beautiful with a lovely smell can taste so sour.

4. Doughnuts taste like struggle. For someone who loves puff puff, I cannot stand doughnuts. 

5. Cucumbers are a form of torture. That’s all. No further explanation required.
6. I don’t understand okra soup. The only okra soup I like is the one cooked plain, and eaten with stew. I don’t like all those okra soups with serenren; e.g. ila asepo, seafood okra etc.

7. Pounded yam is overrated. Yes, I said it😑

8. You know native jollof rice, that one cooked with palm oil, the taste is terrible. I don’t like it AT all.

9. Plantain is overrated. Especially fried plantain (dodo). Yes, I said it.

10. Bananas and cashews are on my worst fruits of all time list.

11. Chocolate is 😷. Yes, I said it. I don’t like anything chocolate flavoured (Except chocolate chip cookies).

12. Milk drinks are HORRIBLE. If you’re Nigerian, you should know the Viju and Nutrimilk brands. Till now, I don’t know how people manage to drink them.

13. Apple drinks taste like suffering. I can’t stand them. I like apples though, it’s just apple flavoured drinks that I can’t tolerate.

Again, these are my opinions(albeit strongly expressed) and I realize that others might feel differently about some of the things I mentioned. 
I’d love to hear from you in the comments. Do we share some opinions? Which of them do you disagree with?

  3. Lol…strong opinions indeed. I don’t like the okra drama too. Doughnuts are cold sweet solids snacks… I just don’t understand it sometimes…and then some ppl sprinkle sugar on it again. If it were as soft as puff puff then I will devour it. The milk drinks tooo…..well I recently started to love a particular brand of soymilk.
    Lovely post

  5. *shocked face* These are some of the things you don’t like? That’s suspect behaviour. But I can’t stand milk drinks as well. I don’t know how people eat rice and drink hollandia. I’ve never been able to understand it.


  6. Hiii. It’s my first time on your blog and it’s really beautiful, well done. I hate mangoes too. If I go ahead to list all the other foods I do not like, I’m afraid you might ban me from your blog, so *lips sealed.


  7. I used to hate mangoes too but not anymore. Till now, I can eat cucumber alone, I have to eat with suya, jollof rice or add a little bit of honey……. I hate biscuits, sweets, candies and chocolates too.
    My best drink is water, I like fresh fruit juice too, I hate coke, fanta, malt etc.
    I was disappointed the first time I tried strawberry but I eat it once in a while because if its health benefits….

    1. Your best drink is water and fresh fruit juice?😲😲. I need to receive lessons from you, honestly. My best attempts at quitting soft drinks have all failed woefully😩. It’s amazing to see how we all have varying tastes. Thank you for stopping by
