    I have a theory that most people’s favorite food is actually onion. We like them sweet, spicy, pickled, and in breakfast omelettes, lunch sandwiches, and alongside dinner proteins. There isn’t much that isn’t improved or at least complemented by an onion.

    Onions grown in soils without sulphuric compounds are actually very sweet and tasty without any oniony flavour.

        If you ever have a wicked head cold snack on some raw white onion. Makes my sinuses run like a god damn firehose.

          I have one right now… but no access to an onion. I’m at the airport. Perhaps in the duty-free zone. Thanks for the advice

              No trace of an onion. I looked everywhere. I nabbed a pint of Tusker and it seems to have had a positive effect on the cold. Or was it the altitude? We might never know. That is, until I find an onion…

                  Day 4. If mean onion density at the airport is anything to go by, the country must be experiencing an onion drought like anything we’ve ever seen. This place seemingly has many layers… but I am yet to slice through the most shallot of them. Somewhere in there, a bulb awaits… I just know it

    Just this morning, my 7yo kid asked for a side of crispy fried onions to eat with his chocolate croissant. This is not the first time.

    It’s even more hilarious to me because both my kids hate onions in their food. But crispy fried onions? Irresistible!

      Same. For me it’s a texture and appearance thing. I just don’t like the look of cooked onions.

      But the flavor of onions is great to me so if they’re raw red or sweet onions or cooked into something but undetectable I love emm.

      I feel this way about a lot of food textures and what does/doesn’t go together.

      Could be the same for your kids.

      Caramelized onions are, sure. But i’m assuming the 4chan poster bit into a raw onion with a Carmel glaze, however, which does not seem appetizing to me.

    One Christmas extended family had a Christmas gift exchange, one uncle had made a “gag gift”, it was a piggy bank with pennies, I got it, he felt bad but to everyone’s suprise, I was estatic. I was 5 and collecting coins, a piggy bank filled with loose change was the best present.

      I think the apples that are typically used are the sour varieties so that there is a flavor contrast when biting in to it. This is just what I heard though, I usually don’t like whatever is covering them.

      Try slicing a tart apple like granny smith and dipping it into caramel. Worst case scenario, you can stop combining them and just eat them separately.

    You fool! That’s an Aggie 1015Y super sweet onion! You’ve given him the taste of the good stuff and doomed us all!
