Text Topic: What Took You So Long To Try…
Oberweis ice cream
Snow crab legs.
brussel sprouts…first tried them at age 30
Parents wouldn’t let us have caffeinated soda growing up. The “treat” was grape, orange or lemon lime. Wasn’t until I moved out, at age 21, that I fell in love with Mountain Dew
My husband was 37 when he found out he likes pumpkin pie
Clam fritters – Dad likes to experiment w/seafood (we’ve been suspicious of his attempts since the unfortunate roe incident) Clams mixed in corn flour batter, fried & served in clam sauce
I grew up in E-ville and my mother was a very good ‘meat and potatoes’ American cook. We had an A&W (only root beer l like) but no McDs. At age 18 when l went to college in Champaign l had never had Mexican or Chinese food. I dated a young man from Mexico and , once l tasted it, l always wanted to go out for Mexican food. Finally he told me this was not authentic or very good food, but l continued to want to go again and again! And though l love ice cream l’ve never had Oberweis – now on my to do list!
My husband did not eat avocados til he was 34 when we got married and i made a peruvian dish with them!!! Not even guacamole!!!!
I never ate steak until 33
I grew up in the Midwest where the land is totally flat. I went to Hidden Valley for the first time last winter and took a ski lesson. I loved it.
Cantaloupe and broccoli…not at same time
