2009 Food Challenge: Cantaloupe

I'm back after a long absence for the third installment of my 2009 Food Challenge.

What did I buy? A cantaloupe!

Any preconceived notions? My mom likes to eat them. The fruit always seemed a little slimy to me.

Have I tried it before? Yeah, a piece here and there over the years.

How was it prepared? Cut, duh.



The verdict? I was right about the sliminess! And the taste was kind of bland. And some of the pieces were hard to chew (my mom says because they are out of season).



Will I buy it again? What does this face tell you...

That last pic is hilarious!

HA! That last picture is priceless. Cantaloupe is really hit or miss. I honestly like it a bit out of season because I can't stand when it is super mushy and gross.

Next up: Sushi!

Cantaloupe isn't one of my faves either. Slimy and can taste a bit "earthy." Good for you for still trying new things though!

Mango perhaps?

HAHAHAHAHA Really?! I actually like cantaloupe and since you and I are of the same food eating variety I thought you'd dig it as well. Guess not LOL

You have to re-try when they are fresh and in season...cantaloupe rocks! But not all foods are for everyone, kudos for trying, I hate trying different foods!

This is hilarious. I was so into your first several pictures. I was like "Ohhh and Ahhh". Then the last picture, I laughed so hard. You should do this on Food Network.
