Few foods are as polarizing as cilantro. There is no middle ground here. Ask a group of people if they like cilantro and one half will say they LOVE it, the other will say they HATE it. No “take-it-or-leave-it” attitudes on this one…
Me? Love it. Bring it on. A cilantro candle? Sure!
Cilantro bath salts? You mean I can soak in it? YES!
Cilantro on my toast? Please and THANK YOU!
Husband? Hates it. Thinks it tastes like dirt. Or soap.
When asked if she’d eat it, Julia Child said “Never! I would pick it out if I saw it and throw it on the floor.”
One friend said it tastes like a penny. Another added “a bad penny at that.” (Is there a “good” penny taste!?). Another said it tastes like perfume… There’s even an “I Hate Cilantro” Facebook group, with the motto “Cilantro is disgusting and ruins everything.” There are currently 2,990 members. What an angry lot!
