i like fruit cake
>>18214358we know faggot
>>18214355>Christmas Cake>BadYou kiss your grandmother with that mouth?
>>18214355Fruitcake is fine, so long as it's fresh. Let it sit around too long, and it turns into a literal brick.
>>18214355lots of foods that i didnt like or liked for some time and then changed to liking them as i grew older or disliking them.. basically it all changes with time... but the one food/taste i cant wrap my head around to this very day is licorice... i just dont get it... it tastes bad and always has tasted bad to me no matter how much i changed....
>>18214355I understand if you melt it to fry things on, but eating lard as is? Pure, utter insanity.
>>18214355anything made by white peopleincluding british/french cuisine
>>18214391Same, it all just tastes like ammonia to me
Fruit cake without alcohol (or flour) is bad. youtube.com/watch?v=-EPfvOmG8zcBut the traditional style is real good
FUCK GARLIC MASHED POTATOES
>>18214401hmm, no. I prefer to eat them.
>>18214440They taste better after a good fucking.
Yeah, the ones you get from the store are dogshit.The ones you make at home on christmas eve, filled with brandy and jellied fruit, which you set aside for next year to age, which will make you fail the breathalyers with your faggot globohomo countries "0 tolerance" policy for alcohol around holiday seasons forcing you to spend new years day in the slammer?those are kino. They also kill people allergic to pineapple, which is an added bonus.
>>182143941) it's seasoned2) you usually pair it with something, like put it on bread, green onion, pickles, a sip of alcoholnot that i'm trying to shill it, just trying to explain how people find it palatable
>>18214543It's not that I haven't seen it or tried it, but I still don't like it even when it's on rye bread.
>>18214355I like it. It's not my favorite but I still like it.
I’d rather eat random goo found on the seat of a bus stop than eat eggplant
>>18215103What do you like about it
>>18214391Youve never tasted real liqorice. The shit you buy from the supermarket are soley Star aneese infused frauds. Buy a decent authentic Licorice with salt. Its like night and day compared to the cheap fraudulent stuff.
>>18214384Just keep adding booze
>>18215194hmmmm, deep fried eggplants
>>18214384>freshThe whole point is that it’s spent a month soaking in alcohol, you foodlet dumbcunt.
>>18214358you said it so i didn't have to, yet i will anyways. fruit cake is an amazing dessert, its just one of the most unhealthy things you could possibly eat in your life
>>18215810what makes it so unhealthy?
>>18214355This is better then sex to me
>>18214391I like it once in a while in small doses.
>>18216524maybe its not inherently horrible but ill preface my explanation by stating that im an american and my only experience with fruit cake is as american as american cheese. i cannot imagine more unhealthy than a brick of candy soaked in alcohol, nor can i imagine actual fruits being in a fruit cake. i also cannot imagine getting a fruit cake that wasn't wrapped in plastic
>>18216735>t. having bad taste
>>18214394I fucking love lard manLard on bread or rice is the bestYou're probably just trapped in the mindset that it's disgusting or unhealthy>>18215194Eggplant is a sponge for oil, how could you dislike it?
>>18216714Nice thanks for the reminder. Need to make an order at Tiri before it gets too late
>>18215289interesting.. do you have any link where i can buy authentic licorice?
>>18216714more like pannetroonfruitcake chads where we at?
>>18214355The only problem with fruit cake is that weird gummy candy they put on top sometimes, like in your picture.The basic idea of a very dense cake filled with dried fruit and nuts and cured in good liquor is amazing if terribly unhealthy, the problem is that most fruit cake is industrial shit or has weird candy added to it.
>>18217860Glace cherries aren't gummy candy.
>>18214355these sugar cookies that you find at every grocery store bakery. Objectively the worst cookie ever created. If you're going to eat a sugar cookie, at least do an Italian thumbprint cookie or something. These are just gross in every way. I would even rather eat a raisin cookie (the kind that looks like chocolate chip but it's actually raisins instead of chocolate chips) than this trash
I wasn’t a fan of fruit cake until i made one and soaked it in brandy for a couple weeks and coated it in marzipan. Easy 10/10
I've honestly never in my life even had fruitcake offered to me around Christmas time. Kinda sucks because it always looked yummy to me. I suppose I could always just buy one but I don't want to have my initial reference to be mass produced trash. It seems like something that would have a wide range in terms of quality.
>>18214519Based fruit allergy genocider.
>>18218071YES!Every time there's a "kryptonite" thread, some retard posts these and I just never got it.They have the consistency of dried play-dough and taste like shit.
>>18217757Wow, finally a likeable pitbull. Just don’t give any to children, it’ll probably try and lodge in their throats.
>>18218129I think it's a nostalgia factor for people who grew up in abject poverty. It reminds them of childhood. And it was considered a treat when their parents would feed them something other than chicken nuggets or cut up hotdogs in kraft mac n cheese
>>18218071Hard agree. You can literally taste the chemical processing. People go nuts for them though for some reason.
>>18218071Store-bought ones range from bad to fucking awful.I'm working on perfecting my shortbread cookies so I can just make all the deserts with my mom and we can stop frosting sugar cookies as a Christmas tradition.
>>18214355Mexican tacosPanettoneWhatever /ck/ likes currently
>>18214378I love Christmas cake
>>18214358nothing wrong with a nice dense boozy fruit cake
>>18218071>at least do an Italian thumbprint cookie or something
>>18218138>chemicals are LE BAD
>>18218237you know we're all made of chemicals man? yeah you have a scary chemical card dihydrogen monoxide in your body. Too much can kill you. Can cause asphyxiation, head aches, bladder issues, etc.You also have iron bromine mercury etc in your body
>>18218131pibbles are basically nonexistent in china
>>18218244You sound like a total bozo. You know that right? When food tastes like chemicals, we all know vaguely what that means.Also, don't post H2O but with a different name. It's almost as bad as "objects never actually touch each other on an atomic level."
>>18218258Did you know baking is literally the same thing as chemistry?
>>18218244sorry if that was too aggressive can we still be friends?
>>18218213I haven't had soda in years but if I did it would be either tab or dr pepper
>>18214519huh? can someone extrapolate on this?do you really make this shit a year in advance with brandy?
>>18218738Properly stored they can last years, but your getting most flavor at about a month or 2
>>18217312the fruits in fruitcake have always been candied. making it with fresh fruit would be another food entirely
>>18215194i could go for eggplant parm right fucking now desu
>>18215194Thats a subtle way to revealing you're a fag
>>18218244Aw yeah there's sodium in the human body therefore sucralose and DATEM and trans fat are so good for you. What a stupid argument
>>18218738Yes, you age them for months to years like a wine. Proper fruitcake is nothing like the nutraloaf you get at stores.
>>18214394you need to slice it waffer thin.
>>18214366>dog’s dinner >presented to humans
>>18214378not everyone is from some backwards euro country
>>18218881they taste like ass after a couple weeks tho
>>18216714not greasy or hfcs filled enough for you?
>>18218259stop being so unreasonable
Sometimes things don't turn out well.
>>18214365Never had that, looks cool I'll throw in and say TUNA. Smells awful, looks gross, tastes gross. Nobody is "based" for eating ground up fish guts.
>>18218509Coke killed it a couple of years ago. :(
>>18220736Only if they're made poorly. Prison wine doesn't improve with age either.
>>18218071They're a craving food. If I'm in the mood for them they're great, but if I eat more than 1 I want to spit it back out.
>>18218071i havent had these in a decade but they used to always give me really bad heart burn
>>18222677How old are you to have been getting heartburn for ten years or more?
>>18218244Wont eat factory slop. Cope seethe dilate etc
>>18214394>>18214543isnt it basically the same thing as butter?
>>18222928It tastes and feels absolutely nothing like butter, what the fuck are you talking about? Milk fat and body fat aren't the same thing.
>>18216714I prefer pandoro myself, but both are good.
>>18214394It is not just as it is, usually you run it with spices and is smoked.Also, you are not supposed to bite chunks of it, just cut slices and put it on bread.
This is 10/10 eats in Russia
>>18214366This is the first real answer. Aspic cannot be justified.>>18218071Great addition.
>>18220736They need to be tended to meaning having more alcohol applied. If that isn't done regularly enough then things get shitty (the old joke about regifting fruit cake becomes relevant). But if you are regular in doing so it "cures" the cake/fruit/nuts. Probably not worth the effort if you're not doing a large number at a time though. I get mine from a monastery.
>>18214395Italian food is the best in the world
>>18221320I like raw tuna in sushi, ceviche etc but I can’t stand any form of cooked tuna. Canned, seared, steaks, whatever it’s all disgusting. I’m not a picky eater but it smells like cat food to me and I just can’t get it down.
>>18218071It's funny that I've only eaten these once in my life I'm pretty sure and yet my memory has permanently stored their weird doughy, floury, pasty ultra artificial taste just by looking at them.
>>18218198>she runs away after asking you out on a dateIt only took Persona 20 years to let you be hot for teacher for real.
>>18214355WrongFruitcake is excellent>>18214384Pizza with Spanish toppings can be really good but that looks awful
>>18216714Years of daily cream filled glazed donuts has destroyed your palate.
>>18214391I thought those were a bunch of revolver cylinders.
>>18223133>Kholodets made with of hotdogsew
>>1822278034. and i was getting heartburn by the time i was 14
I don't believe anyone likes pineapple, you're all just pretending to look cool
Barfy's does look like old hooker meatflaps
>>18225547>Kholodets in generalewActually just Russian food in general. All slathered in mayonnaise and sugar. I think it's the generations of abject poverty and despair that has shaped their cultures cuisine to be so bad.
>>18225561Insane. I've never known anybody younger than 50 to experience heartburn. Are you Jewish or part Jewish? Not being racist, but I've noticed Jews often reference heartburn in their humor so I'm wondering if there's more to that than I knew.
>>18227391It can be heavily influenced by diet. When I drank a lot and ate like shit (fast food, lots pizza, energy drinks, candy, etc) I would get it pretty regularly.
>>18227391all u have to do is drink beer on an empty stomach and you can get heartburn at any age
>>182143951/10 shit b8>>18215289You can buy and chew the root, totally different flavour
>>18214366>>18223855filteredwhat a waste of dubs
>>18227502bought a5 wagyu twice before at around $100/lb. Even with only a quick sear + salt the thing was too fatty and I almost threw up after eating. it's certainly an experience but honestly not worth it other than to say you've tried it.
>>18227514It's not really meant to be something eaten often, but white people on youtube turbo soyyed about it and ruined it. I liked it, but would never pay for it myself.
>>18227509Lurkmoar. Dubs mean nothing because you can get them whenever you want on a board like /ck/
>>18227509Slurp that meat jelly fago
Casu martzu. The cheese with literal fucking live maggots in it.
>>18227524I dubbed your mom
>>18227502Those shits are being raised by the hundreds of thousands across australia, us. nz. canada. Just wait a couple years
>>18227522this fucker isn't white and is probably responsible for half the wagyu content on youtube
>>18227593White people are the ones watching it
>>18227524you can also get a trucker dick to suck on at your nearest gas station quite often but judging from your writing style every single one of them is still a comforting and fleshy treat to you
>>18217450It's alright cubed up in a fruit salad. It's not really for the taste itself but more for the refreshing effect on a hot summer day
>A bunch of British cattle mixed with the couple who no one really ate in the 1920s and raised with a good amount of traditional autism to get things movingDamn I'd love to know what was spent on the "angus" brand
>>18227633looks like rice porridge
>>18227522>but white peopleIt's fucking weebs and believe me when I say not all weebs are white, far from that.
>>18227687A huge number of weeaboos is from third world shitholes, maybe they use tranime and glorious nihon to escape from the murder in real life
>>18227687I don't think weebs care about A5 Wagyooo desu. It's soy infested snobby white people who heckin looooove the newest hot youtube trend. Same people that love Tasty, and Claire and all the other normie cooking content on youtube.
>>18227718Wagyu was a hot Youtube trend in 2008. How can it be the latest in 2022? I think you're losing track of time as you get older.
>>18227720>Wagyu was a hot Youtube trend in 2008the fuck are you talking about, we hadn't even hit epic meal time bacon strips yet in 2008
Gelatin food folded a million times
>>18227562But is not authentic nippon beefu that has been forded 5 thousand times you filthy gaijin pigu
>>18227823That's a good thing they are weak as piss drop dead from minor illness and try to kill their farmers, and only finish properly in a feedlot. Maybe we can fix them
>>18218129you dunk them in milk and they become gem :^)
I fucking hate thisordered it at a Michelin restaurant, I almost puked after the first bite and returned it to the chefit tastes like bitter concentrated duck sweat
>>18220776imagine the farts
>>18218244you're also about to have some lead in your body
>>18227379I didn't get the hate for this until I ate one which I bought in supermarket.That shit was bland as fuck and meat was somehow still undercooked.Even the one made by friend was kinda meh.Guess most people don't know how to make it.
>>18220776what is this tiny abomination on the left
>>18229418>He doesn't know
>>18229418You're a fucking philistine.
>>18223883>Italian foodHe said white people.
>>18214355I suspect frying my food gives me acne. I'm going to put away the frying pan for a week and cook my food in other ways like boiling or steaming, see if this helps.
>>18218071Very much this, you must have to drink a litre+ of soda a day to think garbage like this actually tastes good.
>>18227842Sorry you grew up without a dad or a stable household income.
>>18214358Me too. All the jokes about it made me not try it until I was like, 17 or 18? And it turned out to be one of my favorites
my grandma's homemade fruitcake is amazing. extremely moist, covered in homemade marzipan, soaked in brandy. fucking delightful, must be an american thing to hate fruitcake
>>18229354You didn't get the hate for cold meat jello? It seems pretty self explanatory
>>18214355>he hasn't had a homemade fruit cakeA good fruitcake is divine.
>>18230284I didn't ask
>>18231169Laxative pie basically
>>18214394I once broke a tooth on the skin on some of this salo, now I cringe in pain everytime I see it.
>>18231173vinegar celery with lots of sugar to cover up the phoey
>>18218213What does it taste like? I imagine it's like fruit punch
>>18225811Lol... Red curry much?
>>18227391Try drinking a bottle of vodka a day and eating exclusively very spicy greasy food then get back to me
>>18228210Sucks to have such high expectations ruined, especially at a high end restaurant where you'd expect quality. Foie Gras that has a bitter or sweaty animal flavor is going off, it is not fresh. It was probably packaged a long time ago and was subjected to long periods of unfavorable temperature conditions. Due to the scarcity of Foie Gras as less farmers are involved in production, as well as bans in some markets, perhaps the restaurant had to cut corners.Good Foie Gras is just like sweet, savory animal butter. It has a delicate, meaty flavor like bone marrow or demiglace, and no foul bile or metallic flavors. I would give it another shot, but source it yourself and try it at home where you can be sure it is done right.
>>18214355>>18216714I love both of these. Also Christmas pudding.
>>18218071nah lofthouse sugar cookies are good, but only one per sitting
chicory and brussel sprout are the absolute worst i don't get how anyone could like to that stuff.
>>18218071Yeah they suck. Overly sweet while also being bland at the same time
Barely qualifies as food
>>18230705>You didn't get the hate for cold meat jello? It seems pretty self explanatoryIf it is consistency of jello you are doing it wrong.
>>18229418>t. knucklescraping ape
>>18214394Crudo (and other fatback) != lard. Lard is rendered. That being said, Polish smalec is delicious, and actually is lard.
>>18227497I used to chew licorice roots 24 hours a day when I was trying to quit smoking, ended up in the hospital with heart palpitations after the fuckers sucked all the potassium out of me
>>18231570no artificial flavors or preservatives so it's actually good and ur an idiot
>>18218071shit take. there's some sort of dark magic where every grocery store bakery can make them exactly the same.
>>18227539literally no one has ever eaten that and you especially have never eaten it
Presliced cheese is objectively inferior.>dry>weird texture>slices too thickgarbage food for garbage people.
>>18227379>not liking Sülzeyou have no idea what you're missing out on
>>18232035you can get wet slices, you can get normal texture, you can get thin slices
>>18232058Or you can just get a block of cheese and slice them yourself like a normal person
>>18228210Whatever you ate was not foie grasFoie gras is incredibly sweet and buttery, there is absolutely nothing foul or gamey in the tasteYou ate some rancid shit and got scammed
>>18232081I paid ten dollars for a donut stuffed with foie gras and blueberry jam at a restaurant one time
>>18232063what, do you have a deli slicer in your house? do do you thin-slice your turkey and ham too? get real.
>>18232205You do know you can cut cheese with a knife right? It's not that hard to make a thin cut and you aren't gonna need pore than a few slices at a time
>>18232018>there's some sort of dark magic where every grocery store bakery can make them exactly the same.It's not. Stores just get different brands of the same shit. Comes in on the frozen delivery. We used to carry loft house, then started just carrying some other label.
>>18229418Hello new friend
>>18220776Dear god just let the thing go at this point. It's beyond it's time now
>>18218071I love these things
>>18218071fuck you theyre good
>>18214397>Bruno AlbouzeWhy am I not surprized
>>18214355fruitcake is nice, you're probably a brown person and prefer date pasties. and that's okay.
>>18232026Who said anything about people in this thread personally eating this stuff? I know some loonies do, though.
>>18214366yea I don't get it, what does the gel even do for the flavor?
>>18221320>has never had albacore steakPoor or landlocked.>tuna is ground up fish gutsEven canned albacore is decent when prepared well. It's nothing close to smoked or grilled albacore. Tastes remotely like it because of the "tuna" flavor. Tuna is excellent sushi as well.
>>18226266I love getting pic related. Just the classic, don't want too much of their roast beef, but I add on the arbys sauce too. 7/10 I wish their roastbeef was better quality.
>>18218071i use to hate these when i was a kid then bought them again as an adult and i ate two packages by myself
>>18233323A lot. It's cold stock.
>>18218071Last time I had one it was lile eating sand sugar.
>>18218071I fuckin love these. it takes every ounce of my willpower to not buy a pack every time I'm at the supermarket.
who do we blame for this shit? england? germany? norway? it's england, isn't it? fuck england.
>>18233643jellified cold soup sounds disgusting
>>18233751potatoes came from America and the Incas were the first to eat it mashed up actually. The modern one with milk/cream added with gravy is a british creation.
>>18233787>potatoes came from Americanot Ireland?>Incasdamn that interesting. I didn't know that.
>>18233795Yes>The humble potato was domesticated in the South American Andes some 8,000 years ago and was only brought to Europe in the mid-1500s, from where it spread west and northwards, back to the Americas, and beyond.same with tomatoes which you would think is an italian thing.
>>18233822>same with tomatoes which you would think is an italian thing.damn.what the hell were italians eating before someone brought them tomatos?
>>18231794Don't care what the consistency is, it is cold meat jello. Period
any polish "food"
>>18233836pretty boring, bread, pasta, olives, fish.
>>18229418fuck off citrus cretin
>>18231570>99% dairy products and 1% seasoningwhat's the problem here?
>>18235293Dont forget syphilis coming from the new world
>>18233836Very similar to what the Greeks and other Mediterranean regions ate.
>>18235445I'm quite sure that syphilis dates back to Ancient Egypt.
>>18215194I thought these were called dick emojis
>>18220776I hope you shared.
>>18214365star anus is great, learn to love it
>>18235555They are now
>>18218071my mom is a sugar addict and she loves these. they are fucking horrible. same with grocery store bakery cupcakes
>>18218071I'm with you on this
>>18235821Just like any addiction your mom needs harder and harder stuff to get her fix, pretty soon she's gonna be free basing cake frosting.
>>18235912not that anon but my mom would tell me about a friend of hers she would sleepover with as a kid, and her friend would keep a can of frosting under her bed and sometimes just eat a whole spoon of frosting.
>>18214391Here too. Disgusting. Red is kino, but gummy bears are better
>>18215774Freakin delicious on pizza. Deep fried
>>18223855it tastes fantastic you fucking child
>>18218258>When food tastes like chemicals, we all know vaguely what that means.I don't. I sincerely don't understand what the fuck that means.
>>18232205Literally everyone I know owns at least one of these.
>>18218771He didn't say that that. He said that there's no real substance to saying "chemicals are bad". It's a statement so vague and broad that it's utterly meaningless. It's quite literally like saying "ingredients are bad".
>>18235550Nope, dates back to the Incas. Jumped to humans from llamas.
>>18236083Both are correct regardless of the interpretation
>>18214355I've eaten everything ITT besides fruit cake, and it's all good :)
>>18236880besides the 'cheese' and whatever that maggot thing is, what am I, fucking bear grylls
>>18223855Try it with Herring. You can buy canned Jellied Herring in German Supermarkets. Tried it once, couldn't eat it. And that's saying something, I eat Natto, Lard, Rabbit, Goat, raw Egg, Urchin gonads, raw Beef, fermented Anchovy, Harzer Cheese, etc.

>>18215194where's the bragine fag? how are we gonna undermine the west one vegetable at a time if you're not gonna do your fucking job? get your shit together, I better not have to tell you again
>>18217450I peel the coarse outer layer of the skin and then use the inner green part as a veggie in stir-fries.
>>18214358Never had it before but I can’t imagine why it of all things would end up with such a bad reputation. It’s just a dense, sugary bread with fruit and nuts in it. That sounds like far from the worst desert out there.
>>18214355Is there anything actually bad about fruitcake, or is that just something that got popularized and taken as gospel from old christmas movies?
>>18229418It's called a lime swine, it became a little tradition around /ck/ to celebrate saint patricks day.
>>18237829I hate you.
>>18234608it has emulsifiers so pea brains think it's plastic, kraft is perfect for burgers, grilled cheese and to assist in cheese sauce making (if you don't have access to sodium citrate
>>18238488it's the real definition of a cultural meme, completely ingrained in the pop culture so much that people can't think that it's not a pure fact. like brussel sprouts being gross, it comes from some fact at least midwesterners fucking suck ass at cooking and undoubtedly have made some shitty fruitcake and boiled vegetables.
>>18214394It keeps for so long in the freezer, I can have it in slices on its own with vodka, OP, stop being a tastelet
>>18237829Objectively bad take
>>18232018Yeah it’s called they all buy them from the same warehouse in Hong Kong. You really think Walmart and Target are baking things there you fucking retard?
>>18215194>t. Eternal Anglo
>>18239886Shut up and eat the bug FAGGOT
>>18218213fuk u that shit is great
>>18214358>i like fruit cakeIt is LITERALLY the only request I make of anyone who asks me what I would like for Christmas. If I get just one, I've had a good year.
>>18218244I will now eat factory slop, thanks fren.
>>18214355My wife does an amazing fruitcake with custard every year.
>>18218071Those are the fucking best
>>18220776Holy fuck the pig is totally fucked. Why do you still have it? Doesn't it smell horrible by now? Holy shit you're an autist but I love you.
>>18233881Filtered by bigos tastelet?
>>18214401That's a stupid take
>>18217312>OHMGEEERD THIS IS HECKING POISONOUS BUT I FLIPPING KINDA ALMOST LIKE IT Overdramatic faggot
>>18235919is this reali want to try this, brachs makes the best candycorn so I can see it being p good or at least interesting.
>>18218138Sugar toothed retards
