Explain This to Me

November 23, 2008

How is it possible that the Big One, who is one of the most picky eaters I have ever known likes nacho cheese-flavored Doritos?

The kid will not eat cheese anything. She gags when we try to force macaroni and cheese in her. She picks the cheese off of pizza. She will not eat sliced cheese, string cheese, cheese in a can, Cheese Whiz, grilled cheese or queso with chips. But when someone busts out the nacho cheese-flavored Doritos, she is like a cheese fiend and gobbles them down like there is no tomorrow.

Any explanations out there?

    I have no clue, I’m still trying to figure out how I got the only child in America that doesn’t like potatoes.

    The Doritos arent really made with anything that resembles cheese in them?

    Nice, MSG, Of course that’s why she likes them. 🙂

    And Cara, neither of my girls will eat potatoes.. nor french fries, baked, mashed, roasted, they don’t even like plain potato chips.

    You’re right Karen, if it were real cheese she would spit them out or gag for effect.

    Oh you didnt know? Doritos, cheetos, etc all fall into the ‘orange’ food category, not to be confused with real cheese, carrots or yams. Somehow children are inexplicably drawn to this orange food group. Its an enigma 🙂
