He doesn't like after eights! (lighthearted)

Just that simply. My partner thinks after eights are weird. He also doesn't like fish, any kind of fish. I think this isn't meant to be.
GreenLantern53 · 09/10/2018 20:50
why are they weird?
although I dont eat fish so cant comment on that.
dudsville · 09/10/2018 20:51
Those are two major food items. What is he left with, milk?
DramaAlpaca · 09/10/2018 20:51
All the more for you
I'm with him on the fish though, horrid stuff.
amymel2016 · 09/10/2018 20:52
The fish I can get over but he thinks After Eights are weird?!! I never say this OP but LTB
Shednik · 09/10/2018 20:52
They are nasty. That stuff in the middle is toothpaste. I'm certain of it.
Leeds2 · 09/10/2018 20:52
I love fish, but I don't like After Eights!
Does he eat traditional fish and chips? I know several people who don't like fish, but will happily have a chippy dinner!
Santaclarita · 09/10/2018 20:54
Freeze them? Never tried that. Not sure how that makes them better, I couldn't eat as many at once if they were frozen.
I know, I shouldn't complain it is more for me. But he is a weirdo.
Santaclarita · 09/10/2018 20:55
leeds2 nah. I think he will eat fish fingers, but that's it. I got him to try salmon once and he hated it. He also doesn't like pineapple on pizza, but thinks sweetcorn on pizza is normal. Dunno what I see in him.

After Eights are horrible- along with Ferrero Roche they are an affront to chocolate.
Aintnothingbutaheartache · 09/10/2018 20:58
😲😲😲 Ferrero Roche are THE best chocolate ever!!!!!
Leeds2 · 09/10/2018 21:00
Ferrero Rocher are dreadful! Wouldn't touch with a barge pole.
Don't like pineapple on pizza either. But don't see anything wrong with sweetcorn.
ShatnersBassoon · 09/10/2018 21:00
After Eights used to be much nicer I think, thicker chocolate and a smoother filling. I don't like them any more anyway.
Give me a Bendick's Bittermint any day.
Littlemouseroar · 09/10/2018 21:01
Maybe try sneaking the after eights into his diet, then when he seems to like them go ‘ta dah!’
ShatnersBassoon · 09/10/2018 21:01
Also yes to sweetcorn and no to pineapple on pizza. This bloke sounds decent.
Santaclarita · 09/10/2018 21:02
Ferrero rocher are awful. After eights are way better.
leeds2 you're wrong about pineapple on pizza leave the thread.

I love the fact that you had to put ‘lighthearted’ in your title 😂
Santaclarita · 09/10/2018 21:04
thatwouldbeanecumenicalmatter you never know who will take crap like this seriously.
TamiTayorismyparentingguru · 09/10/2018 21:05
I’m totally with him on the fish - haven never found a fish I like - not chippy fish, not fish fingers, not smoked salmon, not fancy tuna steak - nothing.
After Eights though he is absolutely unreasonable about! True Story: DS was 9mths old on his first Christmas and we gave him a packet of milkybar buttons in his stocking - his first taste of chocolate. He ate one and spat it out with a proper horrified face on him! I thought there was something wrong with him - who doesn’t like chocolate?!?! Later that day though he took an after eight out of my mum’s hand and wolfed it down with the biggest grin on his face. Clearly just refined tastes - even as a baby 😂
Santaclarita · 09/10/2018 21:16
But milky bar chocolate is yummy. I love white chocolate. Did get addicted to it at one point, could only eat white chocolate, not milk or dark. My body just craved the stuff.
Athena51 · 09/10/2018 21:18
Fish is lovely but mint chocolate is the stuff of nightmares, actual devil's food
