No Artichokes, Thank You

Welcome to No Thank You, a linkup about the food you hate, despise, and simply don’t get along with. It’s a quick and fun way to share the reasons you avoid the gross foods you hate – and a great way to meet others who share similar tastes. I’d love for you to join us and add a link to your own blog post!

Have you ever run around in your backyard without shoes on and landed on a thistle? Stepping on a thorny, prickly, and mostly unexpected plant hurts! Can you imagine eating a thistle? For a picky eater, eating an artichoke is like eating a thistle from your backyard. Artichokes are thistles, people! They are not the same evil daisy plant but they’re still thistles!


  • A thistle in my throat is does not sound fun.
  • Frankly, I’m intimidated by the strange look of an artichoke and it influences my decision to eat them.
  • Artichokes take a long time to eat for little reward. They’re like crab legs in this way; and I don’t like crab legs either.
