I think celery is great, but then it is a matter of personal taste. What I hate, despise, loathe, are green beans. They, literally, make me gag!! I think you are right about the mixed veggies, celery is most likely a filler. I think celery is only popular served with buffalo wings and blue cheese dip. It does add a nice flavor to chiken soup though.

I am not aware of anything that celery gives to the taste of a dish. I know of one dish that i used to put celery in, but my father hates it too, so now i don't use it anymore and the dish taste good without it.

Actually..its the base for alot of recipies because many people do like it! The restaurants in New Orleans each chop up a 5 gallon pail each morning to put into their food.....it's called Trinity!

I will eat celery if it happens to be in a food im served but its not my favourite. I dont like the taste and I really dont like how there are the stringy pieces. I never really understood how people loved celery, I dont think its anyhting special, but Ill eat it if i have to..

Personally, I don't really like celery. Its taste is what drives me away immediately. Otherwise, I wouldn't mind eating celery at all. It's a good source of nutrition, as all vegetables are. The crunch of celery is also fun to listen to.

I noticed that too but since its not that expensive it fills up the item and makes it look like you have more inside..but then i'm not hating celery so I don't mind actually.. Huggs Moonlit..
