My husband and I avoid cilantro because it tastes like soap to us. We know there are others like us out there! Has anyone with a cilantro aversion tried the Yellow Coconut Curry or Thai Green Curry Flavors? We would love to know how you feel about it. And whether it is a detectable flavor in the mix. Curry is a favorite flavor of ours but we don’t want to risk buying without hearing some feedback first.
Soap? That’s a new one…
Some people have a genetic difference that causes cilantro to taste like soap. (There was a case I heard of where a woman made repeated complaints to a restaurant thinking their food was contaminated with soap before she figured it out! Apparently it really, REALLY tastes like soap if you’re one of these people.)
I don’t have this, but I’m really curious about the Hot and Savory flavors and am interested to hear how others like them.
I’m in the same boat,but with cumin.
The spicey Indian curry was almost past my threshold
Yup! It’s a gene mutation that provoke this! My GF and I hate cilantro for the same reason. It really does taste like soap to us too… And that’s really annoying especially in restaurants!!
Yikes! Do you always ask whether or not your good is cooked with cilantro when you go out?
