Default Florida avocados - YUCK?!

Ok I had read how Florida avocados were less calories than Haas and other California avocados. So I saw a light green one in the asian market and scooped it up. I let it rippen then decided to open it up.

It was the most flavorless thing I've ever tasted.

I always wondered how someone could say they didn't like avocados and now I think I know. They must've had these kind.

Am I the only one? Did I get a bad one?

Totally bland and blah. I avoid them at all costs.

Give me a nice, dark green Haas avocado any day. Mmmmmm.

Haas avocados are more succulent. It must be the extra fat.

Seriously? I personally like the Florida avocados better, I think they're sweeter.
