This is a bit of a different post, as usually I’m singing the praises of a particular food, or restaurant. But this week I wanted to point out a few things that I actually really, really dislike. But I know a lot of people love, and in this way, wish I liked too.

I’m a big fan of jumping on new food trends, and suffer massively from FOMO (fear of missing out).

This is why not loving the below hinders me massively:

  • Coffee  : I’ve tried it over, and over again. But sadly I’m still not a coffee fan. It’s too bitter and horrible. But there are so many fun flavours and variations, it makes me sad to miss out. Luckily, I do of course like tea though. And chai tea lattes exist.
  • Nandos: Ok, maybe I’m not that sad about this. I just don’t get it as a place. The food isn’t great, it isn’t cheap and they don’t even bring you your drinks. Yet they make you tell them what you want. I have serious beef with this chicken franchise.
  • Pineapple: Alright yeh I’m allergic. But still it looks really amazing and smells really good. Not for me though.
  • Guacamole/avocado: This makes my top lip quiver in disgust. The texture is just too much for me to handle. No thank you.
  • Walnuts: I am a little allergic to nuts in general so this might be why. But I like a good peanut. Walnuts are just too… Walnutty. They seem to be in so many things too.
  • Pears: Like a weird soft apple. Without that much flavour. Ew.  
  • Creme Eggs: (A british chocolate egg filled with creamy stuff) I find the whole filling situation very strange. And definitely not enjoyable to eat. Everyone else is sad to say goodbye, but not I. I say good riddance. (Not that I’m dramatic or anything).


I hope I haven’t offended anyone with this random list of things I don’t like. I’d love to hear if anyone else equally hates these too though.

It always pleases me to hear other people share my disdain for things.

Have a lovely, nando free weekend!

P.S. I speak just for me and not for the rest of the team. They might love pears. I cannot confirm or deny this though.

    I hated coffee before too. But then I started drinking lattes and cappuccinos 🙂 And now I even have my own Nespresso machine at home. I cannot drink coffee without milk though..

    And avocados! EWWW! In Finland there was this huge craze about avocado pasta. Can you imagine hot pasta with lukewarm avocado?? It’s the most disgusting thing ever. I decided to give it a try as everyone was totally raving about it. Mistake! It was one of the worst foods I’ve ever tasted and it’s put me off avocado for life. After that experience I also noticed that I get stomach pains if I ever eat avocado, so now I always say I’m allergic to it.

      Yeh my friends have mentioned trying sweet coffees, but I don’t even like coffee in chocolate so I think it might take quite a few tries! Oh good, glad someone else doesn’t like avocado! If it’s in something I don’t always notice, but I would never want to just eat avocado… Maybe I should say I’m allergic too!! xx
