I find cold cuts disgusting

Is this normal?

by Anonymousreply 7001/31/2017

OP, I share your dislike of overly processed food, with little nutritional value, that aren't economical. Since they don't even taste good, what's their value?

What cold cuts are you eating? the cheap stuff is bad. If and when I buy deli meat I only get Boars Head, which is pricy but decent quality.

Studies have shown that they are very unhealthy, linked to cancer and heart disease. Don't eat them.

I thought you were referring to the site Cold Cuts, which mangles pictures of nude men.

When I was a kid, the smell of the italian cold cuts and salami from the drawer in the fridge made me gag. I can't abide cold cuts to this day.

Same here.

It's congealed fat and animal protein with garlic and pink dye. horrid.

When I was a kid i always ate peanut butter for lunches. Cold cuts just grossed me out. Still today.

Then don't eat them.

It depends on what you buy. If you buy something of very low quality--think $1.99 / lb at Walmart--then yes it CAN be disgusting. You don't EVEN want to read the ingredients on something like cooked ham or very low-budget bologna.

Buying higher quality--Sara Lee, Boars Head and even Eckrich--is worth it if you eat a lot of sandwiches or take lunch to work.

Well, Julianne Moore's ginger beaver is offputting, but the film's more depressing than disgusting...

Don't worry about what is normal op! Just step to your own drummer! You are fabulous as you are!!!

I don't know, even when I buy fancy cold cuts I can't stomach eating them. I always end up with leftovers or going out to eat for my lunches.

the Best cold cuts are still unhealthy. it is inherent with that type of food.

There's nothing like a deep-fried Olive Loaf on white sandwich. Unless it is a deep-fried Pickle and Pimento Loaf Sandwich on sourdough.

I think of prosciutto and bresaola and mortadella as cold cuts and think they're delicious.

Some people don't seem to understand that I don't like the smell of most meat. Cold cuts have their own special smell, too. Ewwww.

I hate nearly all cold cuts, too, EXCEPT balogna/baloney.

I could eat a baloney sammich with mayo erryday and be perfectly happy!

by Anonymousreply 2908/11/2013

I make my own - buy pork/ turkey/ chicken and slice it very thin for sandwiches. Much yummier and not nearly as processed.

Haven't ever just had a Mayonnaise sandwich? Mayonnaise spread on bread and eaten? We used to live on that until Paw got out of jail.

If you define cold cuts as grocery store garbage then they are disgusting. However a dry cured ham is a thing of beauty.

by Anonymousreply 3208/11/2013

what about applegate farms brand? I get them sometimes at whole foods. they don't use nitrates in their products.

A dry cured ham is very unhealthy for you, filled with salt, saturated fat, and cancer-causing carcinogens.

R38, R37 is the Baby Taste Troll. He usually only criticizes people's taste in books. His mother must have forgotten to turn off his computer last night.

by Anonymousreply 3910/12/2013

You invite people who criticize your food tastes when you start a thread called "I find cold cuts disgusting."

Why would you even start the thread unless you were looking for people to comment.

If you tell people you grew up eating peanut butter sandwiches everyday and find cold cuts disgusting, then a normal person with average tastes would conclude you have "baby tastes."

Not all cold cuts are created equal. Quality counts. I would never buy olive loaf, pimento loaf etc.

by Anonymousreply 4010/12/2013

R40, only you and R37 would conclude someone has "baby tastes." But it's okay, precious. The phrase "baby taste" is one of the Funnest Things of All on DL.

FWIW, if I were the kind of poster who ran around accusing people of having "baby tastes," love of cold cuts would be a major qualifier.

Occasional trash food is fine once in a while but I don't buy made supermarket brand cold cuts. They are a gross abomination.

After you've eaten classics of French charcuterie or Italian salumeria you start to understand what good cured meats are supposed to taste like.

I have to admit, I love the Italian stuff: salami, capicolo, prosciutto, mortadella. I can't buy them or I'd eat them in one sitting, but every once in a while I'll treat myself to an Italian sub.

It's interesting that a genuine Italian sandwich will only have one, at very most two, very thin slices of cured meat.

American style "Italian" sandwiches have nothing to do with the very austere dainty panini Italians eat.

Haha imagine that, R62. But yeah give me the grotesque American version or the dainty Italian panini. I love them cured meats!

I know carbs, sugar, and cold cuts are not good for you, but damn, sometimes I am just too fucking lazy to cook and cold cut sandwiches (with a thin layer of butter on white bread slices) are just easy and quick and taste awesome while watching TV.

by Anonymousreply 6901/31/2017

Not to be uber-Eurofrau here, but American bologna is not as good as the Italian sausage it's derived from. For starters, mortadella has little speckles or chunks of lard throughout which, eaten either cold or warm, add a bit of oomph to the taste. Plus, I've always found bologna to be quite plasticky in flavour and texture, whilst mortadella can be sublime.

Personally, I prefer prosciutto either as a sandwich filling or just by itself, or jamon serrano (don't know if you guys State-side get this). You can get a really lovely English cured ham, called Wiltshire cure, and the ham is usually sold or served in thick slices, which are ideal for sarnies and pizza toppings. Ham's bloody gorgeous stuff, mind you. Prefer it to chicken on sandwiches myself - chicken can be so damned bland, whilst ham has that nice little hit of salt and, depending on what you use, either a bit of pepper or fruity tang that adds to the overall sandwich.
