Pineapple - does anyone not like it?

I am about to make my first batch of peach-pineapple jam, something I’ve never seen in the stores, but know deep down that it has to be awesome because - well, because pineapple adds awesomeness to just about everything.

While dreaming up the recipe, it occured to me that I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t like or love pineapple.

Do you?

I don’t like it very well, and I don’t like jam either. I don’t hate either one and I’d eat either before I would starve to death, but I don’t eat them normally.

My son claims to not like it whenever I want to order Hawaiian pizza, but then whenever I have something with pineapple in it, he always has to have some, so I think he’s lying just to get pepperoni pizza. Otherwise, I don’t know anyone that doesn’t like pineapple. I love the shit out of it.

My fiance doesn’t like pineapple. He’s a picky eater and has a lot of aversions that I don’t really understand.

I’m a very picky eater but I’m the only one in my family who likes it. Whenever we get together and order pizza, I don’t even bother to ask if that can be one of the toppings; no sense ruining half a pizza for everyone else. Many of my friends also dislike it.

I don’t like raw pineapple. Once cooked, or used as a flavoring it varies from meh to pretty good. However, everyone should know, there is a special place in Hell for those who put pineapple on pizza.

Cheap canned pineapple (no sugar added, just pineapple chunks in juice) + dehydrator = gorp that others will wish they had.

I love pineapple. :slight_smile:

I love it (a few weeks ago a store near my house had fresh pineapples for 99 cents! I bought one and gradually eroded it for lunch over the course of two or three days), but my roommate hates it.

There is a serious miscommunication going on. I love Nutella, but if you put it on my sausage pizza, We Will Have A Problem.

Pineapple is yummy but many folks do not like fruit in savory dishes. That doesnt mean the dislike the fruit just the combo.

I don’t like it warm or cooked at all. But I’ll eat it fresh or canned until the skin in my mouth blisters.
Ask me how I feel about salt & vinegar chips…

ETA - I freeze the drained juice from pineapple cans to use when I slow cook pork as OMG it’s a delight to flavor pork w/ it.

I don’t particularly like it-its too sickly sweet.

The wife does not like pineapple. She’ll tolerate it on pizzas and such if I insist or if there are some chunks of it in yoghurt, but she’d druther do without it.

I do not like it. I grew up more picky about it than I am now, though - now I like the essence of it (PINA COLADA HELLLOOOO!!!) but I still prefer not to eat the fruit itself. I’ll always pick it out of a fruit salad. But then again I’d eat some pineapple upside-down cake - I’d just not eat the pineapple just the cake and the goo.

I’d never, ever eat a Hawaiian pizza.

That’s one of the few ways I tolerate pineapples actually balanced with some ham.,

Pineapple tastes great. Good, ripe, fresh pineapple blisters the inside of my mouth but I’ll eat it anyway if it’s there. Canned pineapple doesn’t cause the same allergic effect.

I too don’t get the attraction to pineapple on ham. It’s like trying to make a meat sundae. Ruins the taste of both.

The complete combo is pineapple, ham, shrimp, and cilantro.

I’m a very picky eater and love pineapple. Raw, cooked, dried, juiced - even the cheap canned stuff isn’t bad.

I was once around a toddler who was given pineapple for the first time. He ate a piece, gave his parents a look that clearly said “where has this been all of my life and why were you keeping it from me?” and then went straight for the rest of the bowl. I have never understood a pre-verbal child so completely.

Might I suggest a pepperoni/pineapple pizza? I’ve enjoyed it in favor of the traditional Hawaiian style for years.

One of the best sandwiches I ever had in my life was when I was in the hospital recovering from an appendectomy. It was as basic as can be: hamburger bun, ham, American Cheese and a ring of pineapple, all toasted together. I told my family about it when I got home and we’ve all been making them ever since…well, me more than the rest of them! And I worked at the United Airlines tent at the Cleveland Airshow one summer, coring and slicing fresh pineapples flown in from Hawaii for the crowds. Even after a whole day spent sticky and surrounded by bees, and getting the corners of my mouth burned by the pineapple cores we were allowed to nibble on, I still love pineapple!

And now of course I’m craving some.

I don’t care much for pineapple but don’t mind a bite or two now and then. I had a lot of fruits ruined for me thanks to the gloppy canned school lunch experience. I’m not a big fan of sweets in general, so a big mushy pile of goo covered is syrup was a non-starter.

In fact, I don’t have a lot of love for pears or peaches either, due to the same early exposure. My wife calls it my P-fruit aversion.
