I like the flavor of cherry, but I do not like cherries

Everything comes in cherry flavor, doesn't it? Suckers, candy, medicine, soda, shakes, what else? Seems like you can get cherry flavored anything. And I like it. I mean, its not my absolute favorite flavor in the world, but I can handle it if it is the only thing available.

Cherries, the fruit, on the other hand, I just don't like. I'm not sure why. They don't really seem to have a flavor... I certainly don't think they taste like the cherry flavoring that is used to flavor the things I listed above. Am I wrong on this? Have I not tried enough cherries to know?

Unfortunately you can get both in the same food. Black forest ice cream or cake, for example. Nothing better than that for me - as long as you leave the chunks of cherry-the-fruit out of it. Chocolate Cherry shakes from Rainbow Grill. Mmmmm. But I order them without the actual cherries so I don't have to be rude and spit them out after I've sucked them up through my straw. The chunks of cherries just ruin it for me.

Maybe it is the texture I don't like - in combination with the lack of flavor. Perhaps the pits inside that make eating any and every cherry a chore. Could be the fact that I just can't seem to tie the stem into a knot inside my mouth - maybe THATS why I'm anti-cherry-the-fruit. I'll go with that.

What is your favorite FLAVOR - you know, like flavoring for things like soda, shakes, etc? BESIDES chocolate:)

my favorite is strawberry, cherry or grape. but it always depends on what it is. and i like bananas, but hate the flavor of bananas.

sorry about the whole not being able to tie the cherry stem into a knot thing. it just takes some practice...

I'm the opposite of Kim. I hate bananas but like banana flavor. I also like vanilla flavor and coconut flavor but not so much a fan of actual coconut. Wow. We have so much in common.

My favorite flavor is chocolate which is not a fruit but a vegetable.. you knew that right? ;)

I don't eat much "fruit flavored" items, I don't think. Hmmm... let me think. I'm not a big candy eater (besides chocolate). So I guess if anything, I would have to say it would be strawberry & cream... like these

I like the flavor watermelon, but can't stand watermelon!

I saw One Hot Mamma tie a cherry stem in 10 seconds flat...she could be on Ripley's belive it or Not!
