Angry Bell Pepper Rant

I will never eat them, they are disgusting and so many people like them! They stink, and their strong flavor permeates any dish they're in. Not to mention they burp up and mess with my digestion on the few occasions I've actually consumed any. I refuse to eat them again, ever.

The only thing I like about them is their looks - they are very attractive just sitting there. But cut into one and their evil plot is laid bare.

This is just an anti-bell-pepper thread for my amusement and that of anyone who agrees. If you have overcome a bell pepper aversion, more power to you but don't bother proselytizing, I ain't buyin' it!

I am not a big fan of green peppers, but I'm ok with red, yellow and orange.

The passion in this post is coming through my computer screen!!!

I never liked peppers for 36 years. This past year, I am in love with them (no green though, yuck!!!). And never green pepper on a pizza. Double-gross. And no green pepper on a pizza baked next to mine.

I do have 2 yellow peppers all cut and prepped to roast tonight. They are beautiful, gorgeous peppers. The orange ones are for tomorrow.

This thread cracked me up, made my whole afternoon!

I'm with you, I was going to say that it was a lot of animosity for a simple veggie!!! LOL

I like to munch of raw bell pepper while I eat lunch, which was completly disgusting a coworker in the past hehe!

Hahaha, this is hilarious. It would be difficult to have such a strong aversion to such a ubiquitous food! My veggie-hate is concentrated on canned peas. They look like sheep poo. bwahaha! I'm cool with fresh though.

Hahahahaha, so funny.

I, like others in this thread, did not like bell peppers until I discovered the red, yellow, and orange ones. I love the sauted and I like them raw in a salad.

Still can't do celery though. That stuff is the devil to me.

Hehe, thanks for making me smile!

I am not a fan of the green pepper. However, I love me some red, orange or yellow pepper. Especially raw with Hummus! Yum!

It's so strange, these are one of the few vegetables that I actually like but my fiance can't stand and since he does the cooking I hardly get to eat. I guess he's not alone in his hatred of them.

Yup -though I grew up in a stuffed bell pepper culture. They make me do little repeat burps all day. I have come to enjoy, on occasion, roasted red, yellow or orange one. I do it myself and peel off the skin which I think is part of the problem. The green ones are the only vegetable I avoid.

Hahahaha - I like bell peppers, but I feel the same passionate hatred for onions. They are nasty no matter how prepared, no matter the dish. I've hated onions every single day of my 40 years.

I cracked up at this thread! I love the evil sculpture of the bell pepper!

I love bell peppers but hate how they make me burp afterwards. I don't like them raw and prefer the red/orange/yellow more than the green though I will eat the green if that's all they have.

I love the sculpture. I love peppers, but I can't cook with them, because they make hubby violently ill. He likes the flavor, but they tear up his stomach. We think it's an enzyme, because dehydrated peppers don't bother him (so I can use them in say a spaghetti sauce).

You could sat that hubby likes peppers, but they seem to hate him. That's what made me laugh when I saw the "evil pepper" sculpture.

My "evil" food is applesauce, the texture makes me gag. My parents and grandparents would repeatedly force me to "taste it, because everyone likes applesauce." My aversion got so bad that I couldn't eat if applesauce was on my plate (you could have put dog poop on a plate of food and I probably would have eaten around it).

Hey, maybe that would make a good appetite suppressant - putting a dab of applesauce on my plate at every snack.

It's virtually a phobia, just the thought of applesauce gives me the willies.
