    Tried it once, didn't like it

    My wife has never tried calamari, but doesn't like it. There are other examples. Several folk on the "Things you haven't tried" thread profess to disliking things they have never tried.

    That baffles and frustrates me.

    Apart from supporting another football club, or causing yourself pain, I don't understand how someone can dislike something if they have no experience of it.

    I might not agree that snails in garlic are not enjoyable, but if you've tried them, I can respect that informed opinion.

    So, this thread is for things you've tried at least once, and as a result, you have decided that you don't like them.

    Please list;

    1. The thing you tried

    2. The number of times you've tried it.

    3. The result.

    I'll go first.

    1. Nandos.

    2. Tried once.

    3. I won't ever be back.

    1. Gooseberries

    2. Tried twice. Once at about 6, again a couple of years ago.

    3. Made me sick the 1st time, gagged the 2nd.

    1. Olives

    2. Once

    3. Once was enough.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    1. Fried insects

    2. A few times

    3. Wings stick in your throat. Tasty enough, but unless I can find some without wings I'll not try again

    You can break the wings off before you eat them.

    Maybe the ones you eat but the ones I tend to see are very small and sold by the bag. You shove loads into your mouth at one go

    I've tried crickets (among other things). It's true that the wings are very brittle and being so dry will stick in your mouth and throat until you manage to drink enough to get rid of them. I've tried these things once or twice for the novelty value, but I didn't find them tasty, filling or interesting enough that I'd go out my way to get some.

    Tried it once for a day about 25 years ago and I don't feel I ever need to go back. Couldn't get out of the place quick enough.

    Try Redcar. You'll regret it! It's like Blackpool without the sophisticated nightlife.

    Wondering if you've visited Botchergate in Carlisle of a weekend? Anyone whose been there will know what I'm talking about. Mental yet thoroughly enjoyable.

    My mum really has it in for Blackpool.

    She slaughtered it all throughout my childhood and we never went there.

    I went there for the first time to a 40th a few years ago - and absolutely loved it.

    It is what it is, and if that's not your thing then fair enough.

    It sounds a bit like a place I went to in Elgin.

    Pretty bonkers but good fun.

    Certainly some interesting sights to be seen in both locations. 😱 £1.55 a pint in The Caledonian Hotel on Botchergate on a Tuesday, Cannae complain. 🍺

    To whom should I report?

    Its bogging. Who thought to get a bit dough, chuck some tomato sauce on then every bit of leftover you can think of and make it a dinner? Minging.
    If I grabbed a handful of onion, pork,chicken, spicy beef and some tomato sauce and put it on a plate my kids would refuse to eat it!
