Totally agree with the original post, the texture and taste of the first two make me gag and are literally 'piss sponges'.

Any healthy eating foods are notorious for making people miserable throughout the decades.

Brussels however are delicious.

IIRC, we had a thread about strange football kits and there was one from a lower League Italian team where the shirt was all sprouts. I was very tempted to send for it - but it would make me want them even more and I'm only allowed them at Christmas.

Food for Room 101 - KFC. You really don't know what you are eating - it could even have been your dog/cat...

Olives are pretty rank really aren't they.

However they look like grapes, green or black and look delicious.

The black ones are totally rank but I can manage a 'couple' of those rose coloured ones or the green ones.

Only a couple mind, they are a bit much.

Love that tartness of Rhubarb, similar to Gooseberrys.

Making me hungry now for that sharpness - we have at least five different Gooseberry bushes on the go currently.

Two varieties of classic green, two of the red varieties and this weird Japanese one which is yellow (please no pc complaints) and the berries are large juicy and sweet and very unlike the others but can be eaten straight from the plant so great for the kids.

This one is massive and in a pot, the missus says no more bloody plants in the garden but this one is a keeper and I might get to plant this one into the ground.

The Gooseberry bush cannot grab me by the bollocks so the obvious answer is my lovely missus :)

Asparagus. Nothing wrong with the taste but even a tiny amount (the size of a large pea) makes my piss smell rank. Apparently only those people with a certain genetic variation can smell the odour.

Have a quick google search and see just what disease covered, scrawny specimens go in to our food chain....they’re fed so many chemicals to get rid of sea lice and disease it’s a wonder the pens don’t glow in the dark. The next “BSE food crisis”.

Add: Olives, Aubergine, Celery...in fact anything eaten by the new breed of Middle Class [censored] who shop in Waitrose “because it’s better”

Waitrose totally bypassed Carlisle - don't think that they found us affluent enough.

If you wanted to pop into the nearest Waitrose in the Carlisle area you would have to travel to Hexham, in fact I imagine that there is a high percentage of folk in Cumbria who have never stepped foot in a Waitrose shop.

I used to shop at one in Blaby, decent food but well expensive - the only reason I drove over there was to get some brown shrimp, £3.99 a pack and you got sod all mind you but when the craving kicks in needs must.

I prefer to call it more rotund.

Just missing my then favourite unavailable food locally caught on the west coast.

They were odd tasting Scandinavian Brown Shrimp though and tasted a bit funny but did the trick.

When I told the Fishmonger in Morecambe that that is all I can get he turned his nose up and said that they put this weird powder on them and they last forever, they did have an unusually long sell by date mind you.

I stopped going to Blaby and started going without.

I've just bought two blueberry bushes. I'm told that if you buy more than one, and preferably two different varieties, you get higher yields because there is more pollination.

Bollocks pal - it is the variety that you buy full stop, trust me on this as I love Blueberries and have experimented.

I'll try and put up for you later as I found the label earlier so can probably point out the decent one, pound shop ones are normally the shit ones.

They are still alive but you get nothing off the pound job ones, the other one though yields highly every year.

Need to get the trees lopped before I stick this beauty in the ground though or it might get smashed by falling branches.

Yes, my prejudice is based on that very store Munchy.
Watching kids run up the aisles screaming “mummy! mummy! We simply must have brioche!!” was a low point...
It’s also home to everyone in the area that wears standard Hexhamshire uniform.... Mustard Chords, red or green jumper that’s knackered out and brogues that clip-clop every step, some even have their glasses on a chain round their neck too just to complete the [censored] look.
Absolutely hate it.
The kind of place half the clientele park a Range Rover with quarter of a tank of fuel and six months tax on and only shop there because they think they’re superior (they’re only buying bread and milk half the time too)
They get the bread at Waitrose then go to Aldi with their Waitrose bag for the rest of the shopping.

Absolutely no need for a Waitrose in Cumbria when we've already got the far superior Cranstons and Booths.

Whereas out West they're hopeful of achieving a level of affluence by around 2030 that might attract Farmfoods

Not old....but definitely grumpy

Hexham is like nowhere on earth, filled to bursting point with pretentious middle class knobheads up to their eyes in debt.
“Fur coat and no knickers” was invented for that town.

Cranston’s are in Hexham too, I get a sausage sarnie there and ullswater pie when I’m passing!
Not be long before the mustard chord brigade find out there’s a big Cranston’s at Penrith and set about dragging it to their level
It’s safe as long as they don't stock brioche.....
