I find cold cuts disgusting

Is this normal?

by Anonymousreply 4411/12/2014

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.

It seems better if you call it "salumi."

by Anonymousreply 1508/10/2013

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.

We should tie this together with one of the cut v. uncut threads for a discussion of head cheese.

W&W for R18!

It's not that uncommon.

by Anonymousreply 2008/10/2013

You're gonna die of cancer or heart disease anyway, so eat the cold cuts if you like them.

by Anonymousreply 2108/10/2013

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

Baby taste! Baby taste! It's a wonder you can... er... um waste!

Wait until you try Rhubarb pie with a side of deep friend catfish nuggets.

fried, bien sur.

Yes me too OP, that's why it is so easy for me to be a vegan!

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.

by Anonymousreply 2808/11/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3308/11/2013

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

R34, but it is not disgusting.

baby taste?

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.
