    Who eats a plain unseasoned potato?

    I like potatoes in stew, they're good filler and take on the overall flavour of the stew. Or potato soup; heavily mashed potatoes with milk, a bit of butter, some bacon, maybe some cooked red onion. It's easy, filling, and tastes great.

    Well yes, especially given the response you’ve gotten in the thread so far.

    Well on second thought, the chick that tazed the autistic dude probably feels the same way about potatoes as you do...


    I’ll see myself out

    Potatoes give us Vodka. The rest of the vegetables need to step up their game imo

    You must be daft. All of the things you've listed I'd rate among the worst things I've ever tasted.

    I can eat a lot of raw carrots but cooking them turns them into something unfit for human consumption.

    Roasted beets and carrots are my favorite thing ever. It brings out a sweetness especially from the carrots. To each his own i guess

    I can’t fathom not liking potatoes. I understand not eating them, but not liking them?

    This seems to be the most most likely scenario. TS may feel different if they all looked like...

    Potatoes are the best. French Fries, Mash Potato, Wedges, Baked Potato, Fried Potato, Potatoes and Shrimp

    There is no such thing as a "good" beet...cooked carrots have recently grown on me. Love 'em.
    This guy gets it! I was once taken aback by acquaintance who said "I've never met a potato I didn't like." I pondered that quite a while, but could find no fault or logical fallacy. You can argue the nutritional wisdom of potatoes at every meal, but not the taste!

    It's really a common misconception that white potatoes are somehow inherently evil. It's just that the most common ways people see them are usually in fast food or frozen, where a ton of excessive fat has been added.

    It's ironic since most of the ways people eat sweet potatoes are no more healthy. People act as if a sweet potato fry is somehow healthy but a normal fry is poison. Or a sweet potato cooked in brown sugar is better than a baked potato with a little butter. The internet has really dumbed down society.

    I like fries enough, but I lost a big yellowtail to a sealion last year. I wish the orca's would get their stuff together and feast on their flesh. Fries are a chum line of cured sardines for the human tribe.
