Eat24 is an online service that partners with 20,000 restaurants in 1,000 U.S. cities. It specializes in matching diners with restaurants in their area that will deliver meals "to wherever you may be."
Its blog site has an amusing post titled "Top Foods We Wish Never Existed."
"The food world had a few members who you wish just didn't show up," says the blog, and goes on to name "12 culprits."
The catch is that each entry has an "exception." Take okra, for example. "Most people don't think okra actually tastes bad," the site says. "It's just that it likes to be all slimy and stringy."
That's followed by the exception - in this case gumbo, which uses okra as an ingredient (pictured). "Gumbo has been able to magically transform okra into something wonderful."
Other "bad foods" that can be made into good dishes include cilantro, liver and lima beans. Do you have your own list? Share it in "Comments" below.
