    I love brussel sprouts. But then, I once ate an entire head of raw cabbage as a snack.

    Wonder if it has to do with being Irish?


    I don’t think so. I have 0 Irish in me and I love these things. ‘Course, I had to find a way to cook ‘m up all yummy like, but a little browned butter and some season salt? Aww yeah… I wonder how bacon salt would taste with these….?!!


    a friend of mine said i was disgusting for eating them til she tried one. then she polished off the whole plate

    Brussel sprouts are the only food that has ever caused me to gag while eating it.


    Last time I ate brussel sprouts was in preschool. They made us eat them for lunch. I tried to chew one up but it was so gross that I just put it in my cheek. The teacher wouldn’t let me go to the bathroom so I kept it there until play time and then spit it out on the play yard.

    My wife used to put her Peas in her father’s work shoes…then the next morning!????


    @outofocus: @dieAntagonista: Make that 3 of us. Yuck! I’d never heard that about tasting the chemical. Are there any other foods that it applies to? Every time someone says “Smell this, it smells like flowers” or “Try this it has a bouquet to it.”, I can guarantee all I’m smelling or tasting is chemicals.


    Never had them. Yeah, I’m lucky, my mom made potato balls. German food ftw. I did eat cabbage, and I do like cabbage. Still, too many bad things said about these things for me to try!

    Brussel sprouts let off sulpur compounds if overcooked. I would like to think that my dislike for them is because I’ve always had them overcooked or improperly cooked. They look good, but they never taste good. It makes me sad inside.


    Two words: Garlic Butter.


    LOL… I’m betting kids would love vegetables more if they had names like these…
