Are there any food trends you now find annoying?

@Linkat,
I don’t like mayonnaise or salad cream.

That’s one of my pet hates, it’s almost impossible to buy a sandwich without mayonnaise.

I like my salad without dressing, a little sprinkle of salt and that’s it.

@InfraBlue,
Yeah didn't think of that - considering the lack of things they could get protein from - could see it in that case.

But speaking of avocado toast now - I am going to make one with a tomato and red onion.

@izzythepush,
Really? Isn't your sandwich a bit dry? That is why I add a little mayo - not much just so my sandwich is not dry.

Oh and there are so much more stuff now to add - aioli spreads and such -- ah more annoying trends! These specialty spreads!

@Linkat,
Not with fresh bread. Cheese and tomato is fine.

Tomatoes aren’t a dry food.

@izzythepush,
I once had a grated sharp cheddar and pineapple bits sandwich at a deli somewhere in the UK. Surprisingly delicious.

@Mame,
That was one of the types of cottage cheese, a low fat cheese popular in the 70s.

There was pineapple, chive, onion and I think there may have been one with sultanas and curry powder.

All in all it was pretty revolting stuff and disappeared from the shelves once they worked out how to make low fat cheese that tasted and looked like cheese.

@izzythepush,
It wasn't cottage cheese - it was a sharp white cheddar, grated. Perfect compliment to the sweet pineapple bits (not even chunks). I made it when I got home, but the cheese is different.

I like cottage cheese in various scenarios but certainly not in a sandwich.

In other words, cucumbers strike me as an annoying trend. So there.


You're hilarious. Cukes are not a trend, they're been used in so many Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dishes for thousands of years.

And I love your "so there".

@Mame,
It's been an annoying trend for as long as I can remember.

@Mame,
Was it on a cocktail stick?

I remember when I was a kid, cheese and pineapple on a cocktail stick was a popular party food, next to cocktail sausages.

@izzythepush,
I feel that the Hummus attack ahs went the way of stuff like "Lime Jello with carrots slivered and suspended like insects in amber", or who can forget FONDOO , ??

I hate Panko on fish, its just a space holder,
"Fallin off the bone ribs" are usually dry and are just a waste of my napkins. I likes my ribs moist, flavorful, and with a litle "tug back onto my teeth"

While we’re at it I’d like to talk about cereal.

We have our own cereals over here, and there is considerable crossover, especially the ones from Kellogg’s and Nestle.

However, there are some that are unique.

There are certain shops that sell American products, usually at a premium, and my younger son loves trying different pops and cereals.

He got one the other day by a company called Captain Crunch.

What got me wasn’t the title character, but there’s a whole group of characters a regular pantheon.

Not like sugar puffs, they’ve got the Honey Monster and that’s it.

@izzythepush,
Captain Crunch has been in business a very long time. I used to eat it from time to time. I wonder if the other characters are the same as the ones here.

Captain Crunch is like eating sugar from a spoon (with a little milk added)

@edgarblythe,
They will be it was an American cereal from a specialist shop.

You can’t get it over here normally.

@izzythepush,
Certain cereals we share, like cornflakes and rice crispies.

Other ones are unique, I don’t think Sugar Puffs are available over there and I know Captain Crunch isn’t normally available over here.

Some, like lucky charms and fruit loops, have just become available in a limited number of shops.

They’re like a sort of half way house. Say a standard pack of coco pops costs £2, one of those would cost £3, while something like Captain Crunch is over £5.

Actually, it’s not Captain Crunch, it’s got him on the front, but it’s called Oops all berries.

I don’t eat it btw, I normally eat cornflakes or rice crispies, something without extra sugar. At the moment though I’m working my way through a hotel box of Cheerios I got cheap at the market. It will last a very long time.

Oops All Berries leaves out the original cereal. They added Crunchberries to Captain Crunch at first and now do Oops All Berries.

I thought it might be something like that.
