I'm not a big fan of sour or bitter tastes but on occasion have indulged with no desire to continue on. So I guess you could say I could  take em or leave em! Now if you had asked about spicy that would have been at the time of the scale for me. I love hot and spicy food.

But I also loved sour foods too.... my fav used to be sour patch kids, (quite the sour-sweet combo).....my tongue would be so raw after eating a whole bag of those,..but it was worth it everytime.

I'm very divided on this poll - literally.  Love, love absolutely love  bitter but really, really detest sour!!!

Loved bitter chocolate even as a child (Small's dark chocolate for men) mmmmm..... could not understand why my friends would not like it as I thought it was so much more chocolatey.   Never had a prob with broccoli.  Especiallly after eliminating sweet things from the diet, no leafy green is ever too bitter.

Now sour is another storey.  Vinegar actually hurts my stomach.  Even the smell turns me off.  Before BTD I knew I had a prob with vinegar & would ask for no dressings on salad when eating out, so no surprises when read not to consume.   Pickles - yuck!  Never lliked them & even took them off sandwiches, buns etc.  

This thread has got me thinking ..... I have an acid prob.   Maybe  most sour foods are just too acidic.  I've always been thin so maybe my stomach lining is a little too sensitive with  too much acid & burns things up too fast?    

Can anyone relate to this?

I don't really like acidy foods unless grapefruit is in that category.  I like grapefruit without any sweetener, and granny smith apples that really bite back (maybe that would classify as tart rather than sour or bitter).  I do like bitter sweet chocolate too.
I can leave pickles alone without any longings for them.
I also used to really crave sugar as a child but now not so much - especially the longer I stay away from it.

I had a b/f once who wouldn't eat raisins because they tasted bitter to him. I couldn't relate to that. But I don't like lettuce because it all tastes bitter to me. My DH can't relate to that.

I used to like tartare sauce, vinegar and lemon sherbets (even though they made my salivary glands hurt!) and I like/liked brussels sprouts and broccoli, but I don't like unsweetened chocolate, plain yoghurt or cauliflower.

OK now I've confused myself. Which is sour and which is bitter? (All I know is that the things I like are on the avoid list.) Does that mean I like sour but not bitter? Maybe we need another option on the poll PT!


Note to self: I am me, and also an O-nonnie - I'm allowed not to fit the mould.

I don't care for bitter at all and the only sour thing I can stand is/was pickles. I must be an odd non-taster

Loathe and detest for me.  I am dumbfounded how people can enjoy candies like sour patch kids.   Sweet and sour together is good in the correct proportions.  I don't tolerate bitter very well, but most veggies don't taste bitter to me.

I can eat a lemon, but can't even stand the smell of cauliflower and yoghurt.  Or cheeses, they just smell wrong (especially gruyere and blue).  I do miss things like sauerkraut, pickles, vinegar but now there's lemon juice.  Lots and lots of lemon juice.

I remember having vinegar candy once and loving it.

Broccoli is my favorite vegetable, but with my first pregnancy I suddenly understood why some people loathe it. Even the smell of it, and then eventually the sight of it, made me want to urp.

Hello Everyone,

I do not like sour or bitter foods. A little lemon on fish is fine; helps the fish go down. Of course I've eaten grapefruit in the past but only because it was supposedly effective for weight loss. I didn't like the sour taste. My daughters tell me that I will eat anything if I believe it is healthy regardless of whether or not I enjoy it and they're not half wrong.
It looks like I am in the minority in this poll.

Cordially,
Margaret

I am in the minority also. I can't stand anything bitter and sour isn't to my liking either. I do use lemon on my fish and in my spinach but mixed with the food it isn't as bad and the food does taste better. But dill pickles---Yuck (I used to love sweet pickles)and yesterday I tasted a daikon radish and it had an after taste that was not pleasing to me at all. The only sour I can handle is "sweet and sour" tastes. They are good.

I enjoy bitter and sour tastes. I've been mostly sugar-free for so long that I can taste the natural sweetness in things. Lime juice tastes sweet to me, and I like how it  tastes in green tea.

A few weeks ago, my son and I were in a HFS and they were giving out free samples of an agave-sweetened chocolate. I found that the "chocolate with almonds" was way too sweet for me, although I enjoyed the "extreme dark" 85% chocolate. DS liked the 55% chocolates, but though the 85% wasn't sweet enough.

On my birthday, (while waiting for secretor test results) I debating buying a bar of that 85% chocolate. If it hadn't had vanilla in it I might have bought it, but I knew vanilla is an O-nonnie avoid, so I  bought some unsweetened baking chocolate instead. I figured I could melt it down, sitr in agave myself, and let it harden before eating it.

I got home, wanted chocolate, and didn't want to fuss with melting anything. So I tasted the unsweetened chocolate. Delicious!!!! Now I'm wondering why so many people ruin good chocolate by adding sugar and vanilla!

The best part is, nobody else in the household is going to want the unsweetened chocolate. It's all for me!

Loathe and detest 'em most of the time; however, it depends on how those flavors are balanced with other flavors.

Love the taste sour/bitter.  Never one was for the sugary sweets (unless, of course it was on something wheaty, but even then not too much) and with all the stuff that is around now...I usually just inhale in the candy section...remember what it does to me and I am outa there.   I do feel very proud that I can walk away.

Vinegar replacement is lemon/lime juice which is fine by me as I detox at the same time.

I like those sour tastes in sour pickles (an avoid), those "super sour apple candies" (an avoid) and the bitter tastes in olives (avoids!)

I can eat bitter chocolate straight from the baking chocololate bar and still taste some kind of sweetness that is pleasing. Wierd.
