Unexpected Taste

My son ordered some Japanese tea cookies recently. They arrived yesterday and he asked me if I wanted to try one. So I did. Oh my goodness. Big mistake. The first few bites weren’t too bad. It kind of reminded me of a fortune cookie in taste and texture, but then in the middle was an unmistakable taste of fish. I was so taken by surprise to go from a hint of sweetness to a fish taste. Unfortunately I was unable to finish the cookie. I thought I would gag. A fishy taste just doesn’t make for a good dessert. Have you ever had an unexpected taste of something and been unable to finish eating it ? I found photo online.

That is a really odd combination to hide fishy stuff inside of a cookie. I would not have finished it either. I received some samples yesterday in the mail, there is one that I am looking forward to trying, and oddly enough, it is a tuna pasta sample. Just a tiny little cup of it, maybe enough for a lunch.

I like tuna if I'm expecting tuna!

@TheHorse Me too, but not in a cookie. I wonder if that is like a kitty treat or something.

How gross! I don't care for fish that much and would hate to eat it in a cookie!

I'm sorry it was so distasteful. That's my experience with Mexican food.

I love Mexican food. But not that soup they make--is it call Minudo, or something like that?

@TheHorse I had authentic Mexican food when I was in the Navy in San Diego. It didn't agree with my taste buds.

I am sure I have, but nothing springs to mind at the moment. There have been many things that I was sorry I tried though. Chocolates that have fruit soft creamy centers are things I don't like and have left quite a few on my plate.

A bad combination of cookie and fish. Fish is good when cooked properly and never a sweet dish at our place.

I do not think I could manage to eat a cookie that has a fish taste. I cannot eat the flaming cheese thing they serve at Greek restaurants. Tried a bit and that was it.

@Tampa_girl7 It is called Saganaki. We were in a Greek restaurant in Chicago and just the smell of that flaming cheese kept me from trying it.

Oh my god, fish + sweet, it's a bad taste. I can't imagine it. I was born in Sumatera island, so if we eat Curry here, the taste will be spicy and salty. So there was a sister in law whose just got back from java, there is always a hint of sweetness in Java food. That sister in law cooked a curry, and put brown sugar in it. Oh my god worst experience ever, gladly I only took a little. So was able to finish my food.

It’s good that you were able to eat it and not hurt her feelings.

@Tampa_girl7 It does not sound good either to me. We have bakeries in my area but that does not mean that I like them. There is one that the desserts are not good and do not like to buy them and they did not taste good so had to go to new ones so avoid the desserts there.

When I was a kid our neighbors were a military family whose mom was Japanese and back in the 1960s they would get packages from their Japanese families in Japan and one treat they got was a type of lollipop which they shared with us but the flavor was more like hot peppers. Needless to say it didn't go over too well with us kids, none of us.
