In my experience (working at a coffee shop), even people who don't like the taste of coffee, still enjoy the smell of it brewing, I figure it has something to do with the VOCs that are released upon grinding and brewing, some of which are not soluble (or not as soluble) in water, so they don't translate into the final brewed cup.

Have you ever tried cold-brew coffee? Not saying that you need to, but I find it tastes so different from regular hot coffee (no matter which method I'd tried), that I'm curious if you have a different reaction to it. It's a lot less acidic and bitter, in my experience.

I had some canned energy drink thing from Starbucks once that I think might have been described as made from cold brew coffee, though I might be misremembering. It had the overall impression of a soda, but its caffeine content was of coffee origin. I enjoyed that. Didn't taste like coffee at all.

I like cold or warm coffees. And energy drinks. I know they're totally awful yet I used to try every flavor I saw in different stores. And then feel all buzzed and tingly for about an hour or two. Controversial food opinions about kids: I think if I were a mother I'd let my kids eat mostly what they wanna. I wouldn't force feed them vegetables, or take away their candies on Halloween like some mothers do to their daughters, or scold them for eating past dinnertime or whatever. I wanna let my kids like like their foods and not hate on them because I told them to eat/drink what I would eat or drink. Your experiences with parenting may vary.

Problem is, kids are idiots. If you just let them eat what they want they happily live on sugar alone until they get real sick. And when you as the responsible adult allow that to happen it is called neglect.

Oh I see. So... so let me get it straight: You as a mommy just said your kids are idiots. That's not abusive? Treating kids like they don't know what they like to eat and drink and what makes them feel healthiest is moronic and neglectful of me as a mommy? Sure sure. Letting kids have freedom is just bad wrong bad. We need to restrict their eating habits until they develop anorexia and bulimia like I did. We need to call them morons about their eating habits and gossip about how They Live and Die for Sugary Foods and Drinks and shame them when they overeat. WAY HEALTHIER than just allowing them to eat and drink what they wanna.

a) I am not a mom. I just spend a lot of time around kids. (and I'm talking toddlers here, older kids have some basic survival instincts, toddlers dont).
b) I never said letting kids have freedom is wrong. I am saying if you give kids absolute freedom they will not survive. Kids need frames or they tend to become extremely insecure. That is not a good thing. Taking basic responsibility for kids is not the same as "restricting their eating habits until they develop anorexia and bulimia". You can give kids basic frames and good habits without shaming them. There is a middle ground here.

You're so awesome for spending a lot of time around young kids. No one wanna let me near their kids at all... sad sad sighs. Anyways what you just said is very very reasonable and I guess I can't disagree? I'm just saying that in my household even when our parents monitored what we ate and drank or gave us diet advice it wasn't very healthy. Like, my dad's solution to everything was to eat more meat, and my mom's solution was to deny deny deny deny yourself food or eat too much when you did eat. So I got super way conflicting advice about food and drinks from my parents and my solution was to... allow the kids I can... never have biologically or otherwise to eat and drink more freely so they don't feel like starving dogs wishing desperately for meal times. I agree there is balancing acts to do when teaching kids stuff though very sagacious of you Miss Angry Squirrel. :)

And I've struggled with ED's for most of my life cause I grew up learning that food was scarce so when you get it you better eat ALL OF IT REALLY FAST. And also that food was a reward so it makes you feel good so if you eat you feel good so eat so you don't feel so bad all the time.

Edit 1: But this is getting off-topic.
Controversial opinion: Potatoes are the worst. Unless spiced beyond recognition.

Edit 2: Or I guess "the worst" is a bit extreme. They are pretty blah.

Controversial opinions about food: Being a vegan girl don't mean I can't eat some products that imitate the tastes of meat. And they're not bad yet never actually taste like meat. Just put sauces or spices on them ha-ha. And I don't like most potatoes either unless they're spiced or have like peppers w/them maybe maybe? And I like rice and everyone says rice is just for Japanese ppl or w/evs ha-ha. People's controversial opinions that pizza sucks can just go away too I enjoy it even if it is unhealthy. AND You can still put vegetables on it. And I'm not coming back to argue if anyone wanna argue about it.

I don't like the mushy consistency of cooked potatoes. Fries are ok, chips are ok, a lot of crunchy potato products are ok. Slimy potato salad is the worst, though.

I can't stand zucchini. People tell me they don't have any taste anyway, to which i reply, first, that, yes, they do have a taste which i can notice because my taste buds aren't ruined yet, and, second, why the fuck should i eat them if they don't have any taste??
