What are foods you HAVE to like to be considered an adult?
I'll never understand why some people think they have to do certain things to prove they're adults to some invisible force/other people. What's the point? No one actually gives a shit if you drink beer or eat brussels sprouts. Of course the age differs from country to country/culture to culture, but typically when you reach the age of majority you're legally an adult and that's that.
Besides, it's not as if eating/drinking/doing certain things makes you an adult. If you see some 11 year olds getting drunk on offbrand larger, are you going to think they're mature? No. When I was in elementary school there was a girl who really hated sweet things. Did anyone think she was acting like an adult? No. I've personally been drinking coffee since I was 13 and I don't think anyone has thought any differently of me because of it.
>what are foods you HAVE to like to be considered an adult?
Its about disliking sugary sweet foods for every meal. like all the kids at school will just eat chocolate and cookies, soda and chips for lunch. Just the thought of so much sugar/salt makes me feel ill now.
Honestly, I never buy chocolate. Sometimes I will have one scoop of Ice cream or something on a hot day, bottle of coke once a week.
Not all of us like killing braincells for no reason.
Nope, agreed. Beer is kind of a cheap and brutally expensive waste of life that should
have the attention cigarettes get.
At least you can cook a wider arrange of proper meals with wines.
>Spirits, get it?
The foods that come with traditional meals and have to be mixed in. You don't have to
thoroughly enjoy these foods,or even cook them in your down time or snack on.
But try not asking for your burritos,burgers,pizzas, and holiday meals without the other
stuff kids usually don't want.
>really wish to experience fine dining
>hate seafood and mushrooms
>fine dining is literally nothing but seafood and mushrooms
Three or four beers a day? What a joke.
You know how I know you are a female?
>Brussels sprouts and bacon
>not using pancetta or capicola
>Exposure, plain and simple. Scientists tell us that aversions fade away when we eat moderate doses of the hated foods at moderate intervals, especially if the food is complex and new to us. (Don't try this with allergies, but don't cheat either: few of us have genuine food allergies.) Exposure works by overcoming our innate neophobia, the omnivore's fear of new foods that balances the biological urge to explore for them. Did you know that babies who are breast-fed will later have less trouble with novel foods than those who are given formula? The variety of flavors that make their way into breast milk from the mother's diet prepares the infant for the culinary surprises that lie ahead. Most parents give up trying novel foods on their weanlings after two or three attempts and then complain to the pediatrician; this may be the most common cause of fussy eaters and finicky adults--of omnivores manqués. Most babies will accept nearly anything after eight or ten tries.
America makes the best wine in the world
Probably explains why there's more fags here than any other place too
It's the ultimate uncultured pretentious pseudo-intellectual food or beverage
People literally do not know what they're drinking when they're drinking wine
I wouldn't expect someone from some dirt slum 3rd world country to understand just how much America is superior to literally everything in the world
America makes the best wines, cheeses, beers, etc.
Anything that Europe pretended to even have an advantage in, in the 60s. Is completely obsolete
Parroting this outdated adage is intellectually dishonest
>America makes the best wines, cheeses, beers, etc.
When did my country become so OP?
>The more I contemplated food phobias, the more I became convinced that people who habitually avoid certifiably delicious foods are at least as troubled as people who avoid sex, or take no pleasure from it, except that the latter will probably seek psychiatric help, while food phobics rationalize their problem in the name of genetic inheritance, allergy, vegetarianism, matters of taste, nutrition, food safety, obesity, or a sensitive nature.
Find that it's not the inclusion of certain items, but the exclusion of others that tend to be a red flag.
People tend to notice and judge if you go to a restaurant with friends and ask for chicken nuggets and fries.
The point was that there are all sorts of different kinds of fish out there, with different tastes and textures.
I thought the only people left who "don't like fish" were baby boomers who grew up eating fish that was baked to death, sometimes in tomato sauce, which smelled up the entire house and was otherwise bland and dry.
I don't like fish, across the board. As many times as I've tried to eat it, there's just something about it that I just don't like. Might be the flavor, might be the texture, maybe a combination of both. I don't know what it is but I just don't like it.
Basically, if you dislike key ingredients and/or a wide enough range of food to make you bothersome to invite over for dinner or go to a restaurant with, you are immature and should force yourself to try new things.
For example, disliking most vegetables is a major social handicap unless all your friends are immature plebs too and you don't plan on expanding your social circle at all.
On top of that, a wide range of dislikes is typically tied to being extremely unhealthy overall.
Little baby get upset at the truth?
I don't see you chastising other awful shitposting in this thread so I can only assume you're another Yuropeon buttmad at living in his current caliphate
Arguing against American superiority in wines, cheeses, and beers shows pure poor taste
In my experience, kids love those if they're cooked properly.
But if their first experience was with an improperly cooked sample, you're going to have a hell of a time convincing them to try the good stuff.
>Passing on your genes doesn't make you feel good, sanpye. It results in a lot of work.
in the short term for sure, but eventually it pays off when your offspring feel obligated to care for you in old age
>but feeling good and feeling obligated to so something out of pity are not the same thing
I never implied they were. Making others feel obligated to do things to your benefit is certainly not mutually exclusive with feeling good
Plenty of adults eat like children, and that shit was common a few generations ago. There were meat and potatoes guys. My grandfather was one of them. He wouldn't drink water, either. He died before I was born.
I eat vegetables and drink water.
I disagree. Granted it's not a complete and balanced meal but at least it's a genuine effort to find nourishment in a meal that has to be cooked and not simply heated in a microwave like tendies.
The manchild will just take a pre-packaged meal out of the freezer and heat in a microwave but the man will insist that his wife cooks him a balanced meal of meat and three vegetables.
None. Adults can like whatever they want. If you need consensus or group approval for liking what you want to within the law, you need to reconsider whether or not you think of yourself as an adult. Fucking millenials.
as a kid I hated onions and mushrooms and olives
as an adult I enjoy onions and mushrooms and still think olives are fucking nasty tasting shitholes that have no place on anything that's intended to be consumed.
What all you FAGGOTS don't realize is that being an adult means making your own choices and not having something to prove to the people around you.
This whole thread is based on a false premise.
I don't think adults necessarily need to enjoy any certain types of good but I think the ability to eat something you don't like is part of growing up. Rejecting 'yucky' foods is seen as childish.
