omg I wish you could have seen my face as I was reading this. LOL

That is just totally and completely disgusting

First mistake... I didn't notice the tentacles peeking out the end of the squids, on the picture ...
I feel for you but.... bwahahhahah it's too funny.

Your first mistake was seafood + can. Some might argue canned tuna fish is good... personally I hate it, but anything more questionable than tuna in a can is inedible. (Go away sardine and anchovy freaks :-P)

But yes... the tentacles attached tend to make squid taste awful. I had squid sushi at Minado and it was good so I decided to try the purply cute baby squids they had on a nearby plate... ruined dinner... Gagiosky!

The regular ika sushi was great, though.

By the way if anyone really enjoys negative reviews that are graphic and hilarious for products, check out http://www.tobaccoreviews.com

Even if you don't smoke, some of the user reviews/comments on the worst tobaccos are worth the laugh (search by number of stars). I think there was a snack food review site that also had some funny commentary.

You are completely correct and LOL @ your horrible purple squid experience too, they should be banned!!

I'll have a look at this site, thanks!

I'm at work so can't post a picture. Odwalla Pomagrand Lemonade Juice

This was just yuck! I have liked everything I've tried from these guys but this was just too bitter/tart/not even a little sweet or juice tasting. Might be good mixed with vodka though...

After reading that I had to go check the box, incase they had substituted another brand. They are Hostess Ding Dongs and they are not in foil they are in white plastic wrap. They do however taste like "crap".

I had Arby's for lunch/dinner today. I haven't had Arby's in about a year. OMG was it terrible today. The roast beef had a "plastic-ie after taste". I bought my dog a small order of chicken tenders and she wouldn't eat them. They looked very dried out. She buried them in the backyard.

Homemade hamburgers. Too sweet-tasting; I seasoned them with Thai sweet chili sauce, garlic powder, soy sauce, and salt and pepper.

I remember recently trying hostess cupcakes again. Nasty!... They are like full of salt. I never remember these being that salty. I'd love to find an original pack of Twinkies from like the 1940's or so... provided it's sealed. The original Twinkies had banana cream.

I recently tried the Jello pudding cups in mocha flavor. Sounded like a good idea.

Was decidedly NOT a good idea. It was just WRONG! *gag*

Jolly Rancher Blue Raspberry soda. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Blue Pepsi (can't get it anymore) and thougth this would be a good replacement. Tastes like sugar water, little carbonation.

Also: Disgusting Kettle brand kettle chips. Every single chip was burned.

Good low calorie lunch because you'll throw the whole thing in the garbage.

I tried sushi. I don't know what kind it was- it was on a rotating thing... so I just grabbed it, ate it, and was sad afterwards.

Along those same lines:

I love soy milk, but I always get the sweetened kind. The other day at Trader Joe's I accidentally purchased unsweetened.

Eeewwww...tastes like, well, nothing at all. It was just wrong.

Default Food Disappointments

Have you ever seen something advertised or in the store and it looks wonderfully yummy but when you buy it, you are SOOOOOooooo disappointed?

I bought Breyers Vanilla cream Peanut Butter Swirl ice cream. It looked SO sweet and creamy and peanutbuttery but when I ate it - ugh!!! The ice cream was ... umm.. "mucky" and the PB was hard and artificially sweet! Yuck!!

What food disappointments have YOU had?

I think I might end up being just as disappointed as you on that one.

Not that I can think of off hand.

My hubby and I are addicted to Pringles, so we were really excited to try the Pringles Select. We bought a bag of the Parmesan Garlic. YUCK!! The first one or 2 are ok...then after that the flavor kinda coats your mouth and throat like a thick coating of grease! We were very disappointed and ended up throwing the whole bag away. ~Sigh~

Two disappointing foods come to mind.

Lays SALT & VINEGAR chips. As much as I love those two items, they were not meant to be on a common potato chip. Left me with a funny aftertaste.

2nd disappointing food comes from Restaurant Faire. Particulary a French Restaurant. I had Roast Duck in a Pepper Sauce. I thought WOW Duck with a spicy pepper sauce BOO YAH COOL. Anyway it came with a brown peppercorn sauce that was neither spicy nor even delightful.

I bought Breyers Vanilla cream Peanut Butter Swirl ice cream. It looked SO sweet and creamy and peanutbuttery but when I ate it - ugh!!! The ice cream was ... umm.. "mucky" and the PB was hard and artificially sweet! Yuck!!

Most supermarket ice creams are bad. I like Breyer's label, branding, logo, flavors---never tasted anything good from them.

I recommend Blue Bell Ice Cream.

It's the best brand that isn't Haagen Das or some sort of gourmet-priced parlor stuff.

Not to be confused with Blue Bunny, which is very mediocre.
