No Onions, 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!

Onions and I have never been friends – not chopped up in pasta sauce, not sliced on hamburgers and not even caramelized on an innocent New York Strip steak. I first noticed onions when I was in third grade. My aunt shivered in disgust from the sight of them on her salad and I couldn’t agree more. At that point in my life, I didn’t even know what an onion tasted like and I didn’t care to know.


  • If something can make you cry before you eat it, there is a reason to avoid it.
  • If something smells like body odor, there is another reason to avoid it.
  • The texture is terrifying. At one point in my life, I blended pasta sauce (yes, I put Prego sauce in a blender) so I wouldn’t have to feel the crunch of onions with each bite.
  • The difference between cooked and raw onions is mind-boggling. Slimy, clear noodle-worms when cooked but white (sometimes purple) styrofoam-looking strips when it’s raw. It’s too much for me to handle.
  • One time, I saw someone eat an onion like an apple, which solidified my disgust of onions.
