I say that like I loo-ove strawberries, but I only semi-love them. I only love them when they’re small and manageable and not when they come in massive fist-size from costco. I also love it when they’re so sweet they’re verging on rotten.
I don’t love them to the point where I can just eat bowls and bowls of them by itself. On top of waffles, in between cake layers, covered in chocolate, ALL good. By itself..it’s ok.
They’re so SEEDY. You know when some strawberries get a “cleft”? Like a butt-chin? And all the seeds are like…clustered in the crevice? I HATE that. It looks like a swarm of ants and it grosses me out. Does it help that they crunch when I bite them, like I’m chewing the exoskeleton of a beetle? Probably not.
Seeds on the inside, I don’t mind (i.e. kiwis). But strawberries…they’re seedy sonsabitches and it’s alllll on the outside.
Hope I didn’t ruin strawberries for anyone.
