Ah, olive loaf as a status symbol! Who would have guessed?

The nutty character and thicker consistency is far more to my liking than oatmeal made with rolled oats.

I don't care for cream of wheat, it just tastes very bland to me.

I LOVE.LOVE. LOVE Malt-o-Meal (though I rarely eat it). The toasted barley flavor is really the key, there.
I like Malt O Meal too! Just wish they made a whole grain version.

Green peppers. Both DH and I often eat them raw as a lunch veggie. But I also love the taste in chili and stir fries. It has recently come to my attention that many younger folks do not like them at all, in anything! And this is in spite of the change in taste green peppers have undergone. They taste much sweeter now than they used to.

I like fried chicken livers. But because DH does not, and because of cholesterol issues, I never make them. I also like calvesí liver, properly prepared, but do not make it now.

What's really baffling is the assertion that if something is used as a garnish, it's not food, has no flavor, and therefore, there is no reason it should be disliked.

If you don't like, say, peas, you're not going to like them on their own, or sprinkled on top of a salad. Them being used as a garnish in the latter instance doesn't suddenly render them nonfood items.

I don't love them. I prefer red, yellow, or orange. I'll eat them, though.

See, and I think of processed cold cuts overall as budget food.

I do in some contexts. I'll fish them out of some stuff.

I don't mind them as part of fajita veggies, and I don't mind them raw. I really hate them as a pizza topper. I don't find that they go well with tomato sauce. And I hate stuffed peppers.
