For my birthday someone close to me sent me gourmet brownies

They are filled with sugar, that's the number 1 ingredient.

I'm trying to avoid all sugar. Am I an asshole if I just throw them away?

Yes, OP that's rude even if the person doesn't know you did it. Don't you have a neighbor who would appreciate them?

by Anonymousreply 105/24/2020

Yes you would be an asshole. So give them to me to eat since I don’t eat healthy anyway!

by Anonymousreply 205/24/2020

Simply throw them away, and tell the person they were very good.

Take a bite of one so you can honestly give an opinion. Then do whatever you want with them.

It’s a gift. Not an obligation.

by Anonymousreply 405/24/2020

Freeze them until you can find someone who would appreciate them or when you're in a situation where you can share them at a dinner o0r get together.

A combination: Taste and compliment the sender, freeze them, and have them available for future use. I gift should be acknowledged and a taste won't make it a lie.

Just take a couple of bites and toss them, or give them away. Tell the person who gifted them to you ‘thank you’ and think no more of it.

You overdramatic Marys. If you don't want to eat something, throw it out. Cant believe some posters are crying that some damn brownies might go to waste.

They’re probably laced with COVID

Eat one bite, so you won't have to lie. Then you can say, "Oh, they were yummy, with a little hint of ___"

Never waste brownies.

by Anonymousreply 1105/24/2020

Nope. Normally I’d say bring them into work or give them to a neighbor, but you can’t right now. Just throw them away and say they were delicious. It’s the thought that counts.

by Anonymousreply 1205/24/2020

OP, are you a great big fat person?

by Anonymousreply 1305/24/2020

Taking care of your health doesn't make you an asshole, but not thanking them for the brownies does, if you heaven't yet.

Personally I don't like to waste food so I would give them away before throwing them out. If I couldn't though I would be fine tossing them and thanking the friend anyway. It's a white lie, no big deal, won't matter a week later.

by Anonymousreply 1605/24/2020

Pretend they're an incoming phone call.

by Anonymousreply 1705/24/2020

I agree with R4.

by Anonymousreply 1805/24/2020

Like r16, don’t like wasting food. Agree with the ‘freezers’ up thread. With such offerings I would cut them into individual mini-bites prior to freezing, sneak the odd treat myself and ply the rest on visitors (when they return).

by Anonymousreply 1905/24/2020

What makes them gourmet, exactly?

by Anonymousreply 2005/24/2020

My father used to send me cookies and I’d feel so guilty for not eating them. Then I started to give them a “kiss” and take a moment to appreciate all the love and kindness that was intended by the cookie gift. And once I did this, it was much easier to throw them away.

by Anonymousreply 2105/24/2020

I give away but never throw away.

I have a friend who sends me Sees Chocolate every year. He knows I do not eat sugar but still the box comes. I give them to someone who likes them and send a thank you note.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
