A Story by Christine

Being raised in Southern California gave me several early opportunities to come across Mexico's favorite herb. It also allowed me to discover very early on that not only do I utterly loathe this evil ...



A Story by Allan

My first run in with this stuff was 4 days ago when a friend made me a salad with lots of this stuff spread over and thru the garden salad, and I mean LOTS of it. I didn't care for it that much but t...



A Story by Kathy

Years ago in California I went out to eat Mexican with friends. A large bowl of Turtle soup was ordered and placed in the middle of the table. It had small green leaves floating in it. I took a bow...



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...



A Story by Rebecca

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...
