You're right on the fresh fruit. Honestly I have no idea why I said dried. It's camping, not survivor. That being said, I'd much rather have fresh fruit and nuts as a dessert than Smores, Snickers Pie, or hard icing cavities on a plate cake.

Would you eat a s'mores cake, as long as it didn't have icing on it?

And that reminds me, I need to buy some fresh tangerines for a cake I'm going to make for the principal of my school, lol. No icing on that one, just some lightly-sweetened garnish.

And s'mores are way better than hershey's syrup mixed with canned whipped cream.

Two graham crackers do not make a pile of preserved sugar better.

Then again, I'm not in the norm. I usually don't even put syrup on my pancakes.

I have a friend who doesn't eat any sugar unless it's in very small moderation, too, because she honestly doesn't like it. She's kind of a fussy eater in general, though, there's a lot she won't eat, doesn't matter how healthy or unhealthy it is, lol.

But a life without access sugar isn't a bad one. It's true that a lot of people really do need to cut back on it.

Do you put anything on your pancakes, or do you just eat them plain? What about compote?

I made pancakes once and forgot I didn't have any syrup. I just used them to wrap up my eggs and bacon and ate it all like a breakfast burrito. Was good.

When I was a kid, I met a girl who didn't like chocolate.  To each their own, but...

Flummoxed, I tell you.

I also knew a person who liked to put ketchup on his twinkies.

A graham cracker bottom, predominantly chocolate cake (not too sweet), with sparing use of marshmallow would be tolerable.

Really, I'd like something no sweeter than a Misura plumcake or something along those lines. Even that is sort of pushing it sometimes.

Tangerine cake actually sounds lovely. If it was just cake with tangerines in it and a negligible amount of icing.

I like them plain. No butter even. If people throw fruit in them they're okay I guess. Same with waffles and donuts.

I don't always abhor sweets. I can't get over Dr. Pepper, Root Beer, and Ginger Ale, but I also have trouble drinking even a 12 oz. can these days. I don't mind fruit either. It's also sweets, not sugars, as I can inhale pasta with the best of them. I think its something I picked up from my parents. They never added sugar to their tea or coffee and seldom drank sodas. As a child I always liked sweet iced tea, now I can't stomach the stuff except once in a great while.

One annoying thing about it is that I'll order bottled water at fast food places, and if they don't have that, Coke Zero, and people look at me like I'm ridiculous for getting that at a fast food place. I'm not trying to be healthy, I just don't like the sugar.  :sad:

Probably. But I for sure feel better knowing I don't smell like soup.

I shit you not, he was the police. xD Officer of 7 years, at the time.

Apparently, he'd done it on a dare back in his grade school days and never stopped doing it because I guess he liked it.

Yeah, I've known a few people who don't like chocolate (I actually dislike white chocolate, personally -- but milk chocolate and dark chocolate are great). I've also known someone who didn't like ice cream (she said she didn't like the taste and that it made her sick if she ate it), and another person who didn't like sugar/sweet foods. I've also known someone who didn't like almost every food there is. Oh, and I've also known a few Koreans who don't like kimchi, haha.

got served a brocolli, tomato, orange, banana, chicken and green leaf salad, with a sesame dressing at a restaurant yesterday  :huh:

I had a ham and cheese sandwich from the joriwon the other day, which would have been fine had they not stuck some canned strawberries between the lettuce and bread. Jam and spam street toast I can dig; there was just something off about this taste. Didn't stop me from downing it all, tho!

And on my birthday I went to a new Italian restaurant that opened up near my home recently. We ordered a blueberry salad off the menu thinking it looked novel enough to try. It came out and they had obviously used frozen blueberries; They were still frozen upon serving. :rolleyes:

I don't like white chocolate either.  Probably because it arguably isn't real chocolate.  Rich dark chocolate is the way to go~

Quite a few of my students tell me they don't like kimchi!  I notice its absence on their lunch trays, hahah.  I've met scarce adult Koreans who don't like kimchi but they do exist!

Couple of things to rant about.
1. Why am I here? Like seriously why? Why does the government pay all this money to bring me here and spend all this money on english learning, when no-one takes it seriously enough to make these kids learn? Like these kids have been taking English lessons since the third grade at least 3 times a week, PLUS imerison classes at least once a week. In addition, many of them go to hagwons for hours on end to learn but yet they CANNOT form a sentence to save their damn lives! Like a fully formed senence is beneath them. By the sixth grade level I expect that you should be able to express your self in at least 2 coherent sentences by now. I dont understand. It is so frustrating. I wish my home country started us on a second language that early, that many times a week. So many of us wouod be flunt or ar least be able to hold a decent conversation in that language by the time we are 12. I dont understand this place.

2. For the love of God, Why do kids who hvae next to no interest in English sign up for English camp?? Like why are you here? You're making my job harder because you refuse to do or say shit. Stay home or go to another camp. I wish my school actually vetted the kids who sign up to make sure they actually want to learn so they can get the full benefits of attending. Sigh, this place.
