yummy food, yucky texturs

Postby Dizzy D » Tue Aug 10, 2010 8:44 pm

OK, has anyone els experienced this? You decide to try a food and it's quite nice, but you can't eat it! Why? The textur in your mouth. For example, I don't mind the taste of lychee (a chineas froot) but I can't eat it because the texture in my mouth is gooey and gross! Also gummy sweets like haribo! Douse anyone els suffer from this or is it just me??

The texture of food can really affect what I eat.
There's been multiple things I love the taste of but the texture makes me gag or whatnot.

scampi, some fish, fried cod. mostly seafood, but the list is quite long.

some stuff still tastes good pureed
the way i see it, dyspraxia is an extra hurdle in every race i run, but that extra hurdle, is just extra exercise, so in the end, i will come through stronger.

Hmm, for me it's quite rare to be put off a food by the texture. My brother is bothered by it allot. My Dad can't stand soup of any kind.

I get that too, it really depends on the food. I can love the taste but if the texture isn't right, not good at all. I have trouble with bread sometimes with the texture of it.

I get affected a lot by texture. I actually don't mind the taste of kiwi but the sliminess of it makes me gag and heave so I've never actually swallowed any!

I'm the exact same! I went to a cooking club in my old school and I think we were doing fruit sallad. Anyway my friend persuaded me to try some kiwi, the taste was grate but it felt like slugs in my mouth! Apparently my face was a picktur!

Yeah, I can be very fussy about texture, which causes my dad to complain a lot.

I'm very picky about the texture of food.....

For instance, I love the taste of tomatos, but I can't stand the texture at all, so I can't eat them!!!!!

I hate tomatoes too! I don't even like tomato sauce!
Although I will eat things like spaghetti bologniase that have some form of tomato flavouring.

I don't mind tomato sauce as long as the bits of tomato aren't that big. At my old school, they used to make us have vegetables on our plate, which we had to eat, so I would either take about five slices of cucumber, stacking them on top of other things so it looked like more, then eating about half of it with about a jug of water (the only way I could make myself swallow it) and hide the rest, or find the smallest of those tiny tomatos and swallow them whole, which was fairly difficult and not brilliantly successful.
