This week’s questions are about common food thoughts or myths that I’ve heard from other people.
1. Bananas. Do you think the smaller ones are sweeter? (I don’t.)
I have never noticed the smaller ones to taste any different.
2. Watermelon. Do you think that if the outside is darker green that it means the watermelon is sweeter? (I never really thought about it but will have to check it out this summer.)
I thought that you had to thump them to see if they were ripe. Sweet watermelons, fat burners for men, I have no knowledge of either.
3. Grapes. Do you think the round globe shaped ones are sweeter than the more ovalish shaped ones? (Not sure, I’ll have to test this theory.)
I don’t know either but I do love grapes, unless they have seeds.
4. Pears. Do canned pears taste completely different than fresh pears? (I think so.)
Yes, I have trouble buying ripe pears.
