What is the most overrated foodstuff?


#1

I like artichokes but I reckon they must quadruple the price of whatever you’re having them in, so they’re up there.

It’s obviously one of the meat products though but I guess I don’t know much about them so I’ll let you all narrow it down (though the drips who go on about bacon are conspicuous in their stupidity from the outset)


#2

Lobster.

Always lobster.


#3
  1. All meat basically…

#4

Marzipan - people go crazy for it and it’s disgusting


#5

I prefer a crab.


#6

saffron…?


#7

I quite like it but yeah it is a lot of fanfare for what’s essentially nut paste


#8

Yeah, langoustine > lobster


#9

Cod


#10

If someone tried to pay me in saffron I wouldn’t be happy, true enough.


#11

King prawns. Fuck off.


#12

Oysters


#13

good call


#14

Incorrect


#15

I mean don’t get me wrong. Lobster is tasty. I like it. The thing it is is both stupidly expensive and an absolute pain in the arse to eat.

Even when they dig it all out for you a la at Burger and Lobster and smash it in a roll for you… I refer back to the expensiveness point. Just isn’t special enough for the price and the faff. Would happily never eat it again.


#16

ooo yeah - had a seafood platter thing recently and the garlicky langoustine were way batter than the lobster


#17

Fillet steak. It’s fine. Nowhere near the best steak though


#18

Halloumi.


#19

Alright President Aggpass (no idea)


#20

Turkey
