Stance: I hate cilantro.

What does cilantro taste like to you?
Most Hated Cilantro-Containing Food:
Do people in your family hate cilantro, too? Who?
No, its just me who can actually taste it
If cilantro were a historical malevolent dictator, who would it be? Why?
My cilantro story, first experience, recent anecdote, rant, etc...

Click to read and comment on my story! I posted a story already which says that Coriander (Cilantro) must have PTC (phenylthiocarbamide) in it. Most people have a genetic defect so they cannot taste PTC. I am a taster and PTC tastes quite bitter. I say that this is the same stuff (or something very similar) thats in Cilantro. I would like somebody who has access to a scientific laboratory to check this out so the world can know that people who like Cilantro are the ones who have something wrong with them.
More about me:
I am a mechanical engineer and I can barely tolerate Cilantro.

You're right!! It seems that many people who can't taste it have a mental defect! Check this out...

This would be the scientific discovery of the century. I've always said that we are simply an advanced race of superbeings, and this could prove it!

I agree. Have you ever described how bad the stuff tastes to those who (shudder) LIKE it? I still claim they couldn't really taste it AND like it.

hmmm...I have a degree in Horticultural Sciences. It should be my calling to study Coriandrum sativum's plague against mankind...

hear hear! these people who can't taste the REAL cilantro are merely NUMB to the TRUTH!
