    My grandma made the best. Cooked in a old orange crock pot. I think it had flowers printed on the side.

    My better half always says how good her mother's curried sausages were and she cannot replicate them, I have no complaints because my better half curried sausages are well worth eating anyway.

    Coffee
    Caramilk - tf is all the hype about exactly?
    Chocolate Eclairs - deadset the Dane Carlaw/Dave Taylor of sweets
    Indian food (maybe more the imitation shit they make in the West)
    Thai food
    Vietnamese food - apologies to any Viets - your food is just rubbish
    Seafood
    Coca-Cola - may as well be drinking battery acid

    Those saying croissants - yes, if you're having the bland ones from supermarkets and the average cafe. From certain places o/s or fresh from a proper bakery.... f**k me, absolutely delicious.

    Mango's is a weird take. Even if you're not into fruit I can think of at least 15 worse fruits than Mango....

    Has anyone said Sausage rolls and meat pies? I'll eat them but you wouldn't go out of your way to get one....

    Id be interested hearing your list of 15 worse fruits than mango's then, I don't hate mango's but i don't really like them and wouldn't go out of my way to buy one.

    I would agree about pies and sausage rolls if you are talking about the crap ones you get at the footy but travel around to any good cake shop or bakery especially in some of the country areas and a pie can be a thing of beauty, mind you there are still some bad or ordinary ones also.

    I've been reading this thread struggling to think of much but you've provided me with one.

    BBQ flavoured chips, all brands. While we're at it most "flavoured" potato chips, plain salt or salt & vinegar or nothing.

    Another one I can eat but find the hype way overkill is the creamy type of Carbonara, I can think of heaps of better ways to serve pasta.

    I just assumed everyone who eats fruit likes Mango. It's such a mild, sweet inoffensive taste, plus they are very soft and juicy. I guess some people just don't like them though...

    I agree with about half of those, love figs, plum, persimmons, starfruit, and blueberries. Indifferent about honeydew, apricot, kiwi fruit and custard apple, dislike overall paw paw, grapefruit, durian and have never found a more over rated and tasteless fruit as dragon fruit.

    It's squishy and smelly, but strangely it works with prawns and chicken, it actually works with some savoury things. I don't hate mango but I don't like it as a stand alone sweet fruit, I find it works better with something savoury.

    Mrs Horrie will sometimes bring home croissants from the Bourke St Bakery at Marrickville for a breakfast treat and I admit I do enjoy them but really feel guilty about eating them afterwards because a really good croissant is about 85% fat with the buttery pastry .

    Mrs Horrie always being a creature of habit always like ham at Christmas and Hot Cross Buns at Easter, it's funny how when she bought ones from Woolworths they would end up in the freezer , the once I tried the Woolworths one I didn't want another one,, very ordinary, then one day we were at Kirribilli and went past one the bakeries there and they had hot cross buns in the window and they looked nice, bought half a dozen , they were yummmm, so now if we ever have hot cross buns in the house they come from that bakery and no where else.

    I dont mind some of them but all inferior to a nice firm fragrant mango.

    I was going to add guava to the list but cant remember the last time i had one. Same as jackfruit.

    Dragonfruit doesnt taste like anything at all. And persimmons, nashis and starfuit are not much better.
