Disappointing Foods!

Do you ever have one of those let down moments. Like wanting an apple and when you bit into it, it’s warm.

Sour milk is always a bad one.

Got any favorite stories of disgust.

When I was a kid, we went to my granparents farm every Sunday for a afmily dinner.

They had a pear tree near the pasture, and we would pick pears and eat them right off of the tree, feed the horse, ponies, goats, etc.

I had a taste for one, so when we got there, I ran straight to the tree, picked a couple and fed a few to the animals. Then sat under the tree, to enjoy my pear. I bit into it, and tasted something weird and mushy and bitter. When I looked down I realized I bit into a bunch of worms that infested the pear. I almost threw up right there.

I have always cut my fruit before I ate it from then on.

Ha! Almost the exact same thing happened to me, only with a neighbors apple tree. Likewise, my fruit is always split into two before consumption.

Went for my first cheat meal in 2 weeks to McDonalds and got 3 double cheeseburgers. Normally they are pretty good but these were extremely dry. I would have rather just ate a regular meal.

Anything from McDonalds is pretty disappointing.

Its drunk food when nothing else is close by, and nothing more.

Happened when I was a little kid, I saw my dad making some kind of noodle with yogurt and it tastes amazingly nice. I tried to to make my own the next day but I couldn’t find any yogurt, so I used milk instead…

Fresh peach, free stone, took a bite, and saw a worm on the pit. I too cut the fruit in half now!

My biggest disappointment like that occurred when I was 19. I’ve always eaten fresh apples and pears, sometimes up to 5 at a time. But one day I suddenly became allergic to them. TO this day I can’t eat either of them lest my throat closes up and I feel really dizzy and nauseous.

I used to eat broccoli from my parent’s garden until I realized I was eating some green worm-type things living under the buds. Even with what would seem to be a thorough rinse, I would still find them. Finally I just started buying all my produce from the grocery store.

Undercooked corn is always disappointing as well.

x4 on wormy fruit.

I don’t think I’ve ever gotten fast food that wasn’t a disappoint. It all looks so good in the pictures, but what they give you looks like a fat person sat on it for a while.

The only fast food place that never disappoints me is IHOP.

The “extreme grand slam” was a HUGE disappointment. My friends and I started laughing when it came to the table.

Steaks from places that aren’t known for cooking steaks are always disappointing as well.

The best KFC

Cant beat a zinger tower burger or 2

I have to second the McDonald’s food, the warm fruit, and wormy vegetables.

Last easter, when I was cutting, I decided to eat an easter (chocoalte) egg. I snapped off a piece…it was no where near as good as I expected it to be. It was fine, in the sense of the quality…i juz felt I ripped myself off! haha

i’ve never found any worms in my fruit. For me tho, the worst thing is taking a bite of, what appears to be, a delicious apple, only to find out it’s mushy & yucky inside!!! Blek! What were the cooks thinking? lol

I’m a big fan of the KFC zinger burger. We don’t have the ‘zinger tower burger’ here in Australia tho

Yes, Easter chocolate is disapointing. I think it has a high wax content or something. Also, after you eat the solid ears you are left with the hollow body ((sigh))
