^ I was just at Target yesterday and picked up some Chulula Hot Sauce (made in mexico). Maybe the watery, almost vinegary Tabasco doesn't appeal to you.

Goldfish snack crackers they were fun as a kid but the flavor isn't right on the pizza ones, the cheddar one is too buttery.
I bet that hot sauce was good. I don't really ever have a need to put hot sauce on food anyway. I like to taste the ingredients I put in my food, pouring something spicy on it just covers up the flavor. But Tabasco in particular tastes nasty in my opinion, not just vinegary, something with a foul and rotting odor in there that I find really repulsive. I love pickles so if not for that other smell I'd probably like Tabasco as a salad dressing or something.

^ I like the hot sauce to have just a little on scrambled eggs. I can tell that you really don't like Tabasco!! I read a recent book Uprooted, by Naomi Novik and she describes some of the potions used in glass-stopper bottles like Fire Heart and others that are foul-smelling and you made me think of that. I agree that often it is best not to overdue dressing and such to not cover up flavors

I've been told I have a really sensitive sense of taste and smell. I'm apparently able to detect odors in foods from trace materials in the processing stage. Which is why many boxed or canned foods have a strange flavor or smell to me. I also used to complain to my roommate about leaving food uncovered in the refrigerator because it makes my drink taste funny (after I put the ice in it).

I've never understood the "Greek yogurt" meme. It tastes the exact same as any other yogurt and it doesn't seem to be any more nutritious.

That noticing taste thing was why growing up I'd refuse to drink water and other drinks when offered when I was visiting people. You'd get the tasted of everything in the fridge in just one glass of water.

I don't see the point of popcorn.

Yet again I pass the ice-cream section in supermarkets because it's full of 101 ways to add chocolate or caramel or toffee or fudge or marshmallows or all of them at once to ice cream. If I want ice cream it's best I make it myself or go to our local ice cream palour/café.

Food in general. Eating seems like a chore to me.

Have you ever heard of Bunny Tracks ice cream? One of the more creative ice cream flavors that's not from Ben & Jerry's. It's vanilla ice cream with caramel and fudge swirls, chocolate covered peanuts and peanut butter filled chocolate bunnies. Oh great, now I'm hungry for it.

Plain Greek yogurt can be used in place of sour cream, and no one will know the difference. They'll know if you use plain regular yogurt.

Now put blueberries on each.
