A Story by Hank

I am a total foodie and will anything, and I mean anything. Nothing scares me. If its' weird or unusual, count me in.

However, the one cuisine I simply cannot stomach is Mexican. Its' not...



A Story by Mike

I love food. The list of foods that I hate is very small. The list of foods so vile that the thought of them alone makes me gag is smaller yet. Those include: mushrooms, seafood, and tomatoes. But...



A Story by Travis

It was lying there on the shelf, cooling itself under the mist of the irrigation sprinklers. It fooled me. I grabbed it without thinking, bagged it up, and said to my wife, "I got the parsley!&qu...



A Story by Zia


I had often seen TV chefs use cilantro in their cooking, but never actually tasted it. I just assumed it was delicious based on what they said about it. Well, this year, I finally got a taste of ...



A Story by H Morency

Times and again I had to get out of the large office room where my colleagues were eating Thai food on a regular basis at lunch time; I was getting a headache everytime; I thought it might be a fish s...



A Story by Krunk

Bottom line : cilantro is horrible. the first time I ever tasted it, I thought I bit my tongue while chewing and was tasting the blood from that. WRONG...someone just put something in my salsa that ...



A Story by Victoria

My first experience was last year when me and my friends went traveling round SE Asia. I love food from everywhere, there is hardly anything I don't like, and even if food is not that great I'll still...



A Story by Carol

I remember my first encounter with cilantro. I'd found a recipe in a cookbook that called for a large quantity of cilantro (2 cups chopped). The meal was inedible and had to be tossed out. My ex-bo...



A Story by Andres

The first time I ran into cilantro I saw it and became disgusted. I was about 9 years old and hated vegetables or anything that was green due to my preference for happy meals, pizza, candy and soda. G...

I've lived in a lot of different cities and states, and in Germany, and I've visited a lot of other places, so I have tried a many different regional cuisines. But my husband and I finally settled in...



A Story by Tommy

I have had many unfortunate encounters with Cilantro over the years. Unfortunately, this disgusting herb is becoming more common in nice restaurants throughout NY. Its odd, i really can't explain it...



A Story by Bill Hardy

The researcher mentioned in Wikipedia surmises that cilantro aversion stems from a lack of response to its pleasing odor. This is clearly wrong (and he clearly lacks the aversion). One of the bad thin...



A Story by Heather

I was meeting my best friends boyfriend for the first time and he did something vile that is almost unforgivable. He ate a sprig of cilantro dipped in bleu cheese. I can't even tell this story witho...



A Story by Andrew

People seem to act like i'm just a fussy eater telling me that I should just put up with it or that I would like it in something different. People act as if it's not really a problem and that it's jus...



A Story by Robin

Hi everyone,

I just thought I'd put a new twist on the story... or maybe it's been mentioned before...

I just had a burrito from Chipotle, and a fellow cilantro hater clued me into a...



A Story by Justin

About 5 years ago, I tried Chipotle for the first time. For those that don't know what it is, Chipotle is a "Mexican" style chain that specializes in burritos and like fare. Chipotle looked ...



A Story by Will

I am not what you would normally call a "foodie". So for awhile, I wasn't sure of the name of the ingredient that I hated so much. Once I had a name for it, however, there was no looking bac...



A Story by Summer

I first encountered cilantro at a Thai restaurant in 1998. I was like, there is some really weird flavor in here, I don't like it, but I don't know what it is. After picking through the dish and con...

I am Turkish, I think I was 15 or 16 on a trip in San Diego when I first met with that parsley looking wierd leaf. Since then I can not stand the taste and each year number of rest...



A Story by Sue

I bought some beautiful potted herbs today. After repotting them, I kept smelling this horrible, familiar, terrifying odor! I froze, as I realized I had mistakenly purchased cilantro, instead of fla...
