This is going to be awful.
Have my food/drink picked out.

Looks like I’ll be taking a trip on my lunch break to the local sushi place to have Octopus for the first time in 7+ years (not sure the exact number, just know it was during my old Ohio days).August 9, 2017 at 11:46 am #22097MeganParticipant
Does haggis count? Because I really was NOT going to eat it.August 9, 2017 at 11:54 am #22098BlondieParticipant
So glad to not be on the System train right now, because just even thinking of eating rosemary makes me wanna vom. However, here’s the thing. Who’s gonna know if that is in fact something you hate? Pick something random you don’t mind, pull the appropriate faces… Boom. Done.August 9, 2017 at 11:57 am #22099Meghan MayhemParticipant
Here’s to making bad choices before noon. Now when are we getting that drink together, @maddyxxx?August 9, 2017 at 12:06 pm #22100CandaceParticipant
My hands are literally shaking because I was so nervous about gagging but u know what..drinking orange juice with pulp wasn’t as horrific as I remember. It’s still not my favorite and I wouldn’t ever order it at a restaurant but it’s OK and I didn’t gag!!

@blondie I literally don’t even know what you are talking about, this isn’t about on a train or not on a train. You can cheat in life all you want, in fact I often encourage it, but when it comes to learning something or not learning something you only short cut yourself if you don’t even try or have a take away. I thought I would have made that clear by now. So, hop on my thread, bitch and complain, don’t do anything and teach everyone how to not try a new experience… Good work. Try things, grow, get out of your supposed boxes or go waste someone else’s time.
NOW, I always learn something from everything so my take away from your nonsense is THIS…
The rest of you, DO NOT go over the top and over-exaggerate because it’s fun… Sure, I do indeed want to see someone barf. I am human. This isn’t about that though, it’s about re-avulating supposed truths. Examine your stupid bullshit, check in, find out if it’s still there.

Hahaha fuck this rules so much! 😂😂😂 will report back soon 😘
Oh also… we gonna meet up in two weeks or what? 😈 @maddyxxxAugust 9, 2017 at 12:14 pm #22104CandaceParticipant
@maddyxxx thank you for continuing to push me to do the things I am afraid of. The only limits are the ones I set for myself. Trying to get out of my own way. I understand the point of this and I appreciate it!August 9, 2017 at 12:17 pm #22105CaraParticipant
@maddyxxx I’m not going to participate in this challenge but I actually do see some value in it. I will say that as a child I hated tomatoes and now I love them. Tastes change over time (in more ways than one). So, I’ll enjoy watching everyone expand their horizons today. Maybe I’ll even go try out some asparagus just to see if I still hate it… but I’m not filming it for you.August 9, 2017 at 12:18 pm #22106BlondieParticipant
@maddyxxx Aww, did I rattle your cage boo? The only thing this tests is people’s gag reflexes. Although I too am hoping for some “barf”…August 9, 2017 at 12:24 pm #22107Sarah MusnickyParticipant
I feel like puking. The caramel did not make the texture better…August 9, 2017 at 12:26 pm #22108Sarah MusnickyParticipant
However, I will say that @maddyxxx has a point. My texture preferences aside, over the years I have found myself being okay with textures that I used to despise. I used to fucking hate tofu and now I love it. Alas, I guess flan is not in the cards for me…August 9, 2017 at 12:28 pm #22109SeanModerator
Task completed. Fuckin’ hate pesto so that was my target.
Upside: Got to go out to lunch and get some pesto-laden pasta. Turns out I still fucking hate it but I got to expense it so got my company to pay for this little experiment.
Downside: Lunch meeting meant that I couldn’t film it, though. Wasn’t all that exciting anyways. Just thoughtful expression, bite, bite, swallow, frown. Fucking riveting stuff.
Overall 4/10 experience. Maybe 5/10 because I got free shitty food. Also pesto is still shit and anyone who likes it is outright wrong.August 9, 2017 at 12:28 pm #22110Lauren BelloParticipant
It was tough for me to think of something because in the past few years I’ve already been revisiting foods I hated as a child (fish, plantains…). Often they weren’t anything like what I remembered.
Eventually I decided on a Tootsie Roll…haven’t had one of these in 20+ years. The only time I had one as a child, I threw up. Everything about them just repelled me – the smell, the texture, the way I remembered bits of paper staying stuck to the Tootsie Roll.
Still not a fan of the smell. But the taste was tolerable, the texture was actually kind of fun, and wrappers have improved over the years – no leftover bits at all. Still not my thing, but I guess I don’t have to be repelled by them. 3/10
