Food Fight: Mayo Discourse

Discussion in 'General Chatter' started by budgie, Jan 10, 2017.

    My husband and I were talking about this, so:

    Which is worse, biting into something that looks like it should be sweet and finding out it's savory, or the other way around (looks savory, tastes sweet)? We saw someone making a very realistic looking hamburger out of cake at one point and that prompted this discussion.

    The latter, definitely. The hamburger out of cake idea made me have to literally turn my phone screen over for a second.

    Should be savory, is sweet—cakes made to look like meat are viscerally uncomfortable for me in a way that, like, a popsicle made of meat wouldn’t be. (If it’s a combo of sweet-savory that’s different, but just straight trick sweet or straight trick savory, Trick Sweet is more upsetting to run into without warning.)

    Id choose sweet should be savory because No, but i realise my view is skewed by the cake example, as i am Not A Fan of most cakes. I really thought about it though and its gotta be savory should be sweet. The last thing i want to bite into is, for example, something like chocolate covered bacon. What kind of madman would waste perfectly good chocolate like that?

    Also, whats the general opinion of cake pops? I hate them with a fiery passion after my first one betrayed me. Its basically frosting mixed with cake and then you dunk it in even more frosting. Gross.

    Cake pops are good unless they’re bad. However I don’t know why anyone would want to eat them when they could have either a) actual cake or b) an Oreo truffle

    I just remembered that I could make Oreo truffles with the supplies in my apartment right now and I’m fighting not to jump out of bed at 12:30 AM to do that immediately

    I could put this in out of context quotes but I'd rather have context:

    So said because it's very contagious. If I see, smell, or hear about popcorn in any significant way, I will probably want to make some myself. If other people notice that I'm eating popcorn, they often seem inclined to go get popcorn. Discuss?

    I gotta disagree with the majority, expecting sweet and getting savory is worse.

    Agree, i had one (1) mustard filled joke-Krapfen in my life and it was enough for a life time

    as for cakepops: I've made some myself that were basically 'cake, cream cheese, covered in chocolate' and those were quite good. I'm not a huge fan of frosting when it comes to covering things.

    Popcorn is the Enemy. It’s delicious but it takes several days to finish eating because that’s how long it takes to get the husks out of my teeth. The Enemy

    itsAlana let me tell you about the vorkosigan saga

    i'd rather have something i expected to be savory to be sweet than something i expected to be sweet to betray me

    also cake pops can be ok but a lot of them seem to just be made with bad cake and too-sweet frosting, which is just a bad combo in general, u know?
