Does anyone eat prunes because they actually like them?

I had to eat prunes yesterday, but this was after a disgusting glass of Epsom salt, so they didn't really taste as bad as they normally do. But it's not just the taste, it's the texture of them, it's just the color and the stickiness. They're so gross! I wondered if anyone eats them only to get their system going, or if people actually get them because they enjoy them.

We don't eat prunes in our house. But when our now 11 year old son was a year old he had a bowel problem and we were told to give him prunes to help him go. We used to buy tinned prunes and he would only eat one brand of them, the local supermarket's own make. He used to love them and would wolf them down at every meal, so three times a day he would eat prunes. Sadly they didn't help his bowels and we needed to go further with the doctor etc. But he did love them, doubt he would eat them now though!!LOL

Well, that's kind of strange! I remember as little kids, we were forced to eat them, but they seemed to taste a lot worse back then. A kid who loves fruit! Imagine that!

I hate them myself. They are nasty and disgusting. Some people really like them not me though. I have heard of people eating them to lose weight.

I remember liking prunes as a child - with hot creamed rice! I know what you mean about the texture, but the flavour's really nice. Prune juice is delicious - and very good for you (if you know what I mean!)

I like them! They're like big raisins, only they started off as plums not grapes. Happy MyLotting!

Hi sheepie, I eat them because I like them, very much. I like the taste and the color doesn't bother me and stickiness makes it even tasteful. Don't hate me for this, okay? I an see we're totally the opposite when it comes to prunes. I just wish they're not that expensive so I can eat them as often as I like. Hush now, don't worry I can eat them for you. No sweat.
