Last week I added Picky About Bananas to my Twitter profile and my blog header, and I thought it might be time to explain this.
This originally started out as a joke with a few friends. If you ask if there are any foods I dislike, I’d likely originally tell you, “Not really” and then as we discussed it more, you’d come to learn that I have a few qualifiers as they relate to food. Especially bananas.
See, I like bananas. I eat a banana nearly every day.
However (and this however is a big one) I will not eat a banana with spots. I prefer my bananas somewhat on the green side. As soon as I spot a spot, my bananas become baking or smoothie bananas and not snacking bananas.
These bananas became smoothie bananas.
These bananas are acceptable for eating.
On top of my issue with spots on bananas, I also don’t really like the smell of bananas. If I’m eating the banana it’s not a big deal, but if you are eating a banana and I am not, the smell is quite off-putting. I’ll probably email Ann and Heather and tell them I had to, ugh, smell a banana. Ew.
Of course bananas aren’t the only food I’m picky about…
Cantaloupe and honeydew melons. Just ick. I love fruit. I love fruit salad. If your fruit salad contains any of the two aforementioned melons I will avoid it at all costs. It’s gross, cheap, filler fruit. Pass.
Apples. I like apples, I really do, but the peel. Oh, the peel. The way is squeaks on my teeth just drives me absolutely insane and I cannot handle it. At all. It’s a weird sensory thing for sure. Sorry apples, I miss you.
Milk. I don’t dislike dairy products, I think cheese is amazing, but milk kind of grosses me out. However, I will drink milk in a latte without a second thought. But you won’t ever catch me drinking a glass of cold milk. Hork.
- Red onions. These are probably the only food I’ll actually not eat. I love Greek salad, but will eat around the red onions, I just can’t do it. At all.
Tell me: What’s your weirdest food quirk?
