I have never had a problem with food texture - as long as it tastes good, I'm there. But it seems like there are many people have issues with food texture. I find that an interesting little quirk.

The reason why I like a lot of foods is because of the texture. Screw the taste...

I like crunchy textures. I can't stand chips though. Anything gooey like warm caramel is a favourite of mine too. Also jelly or homemade custard that is thick... mmmm.

I haven't heard that one yet. I can see what you mean - the only reason I eat jelly is because of the texture. I mean, really, does jelly really taste like anything?

I have this problem. Raw onions, I cannot do them. The crunch is so absurd to me, it makes me want to gag. I know that's silly, but it's the truth. I'm the same way with mushrooms, can't stand them, and also anything really slimy.

I'm more about the flavor too, but then I also LIKE different textures. Any "picky-ness" is over quality. If something is poorly made & that affects the texture negatively, then it may be an issue. The only texture I am not crazy about is VERY slimy sea food, but if it's prepared right, then it's usually not a problem. My idea of slimy is probably more extreme than some other people's definition also. There's some stuff people would call slimy that I wouldn't.....

I don't think I'm fussy but there are a few foods I can only eat one way. Like broccoli needs to be more on the crunchy side like chinese style, same deal with onions can't do raw, one of those weirdos that prefers soggy weetbix especially with warm milk, I prefer melted icecream/softsoftserve, prefer bread that is soft and not crunchy, don't like scrabbled eggs, love lumpy custard, prefer raw cabbage over cooked, don't like whole potato, prefer crispy baked pumpkin/yam over steamed, soft cookies over crunchy cookies and that's all I can think of right now.

Overall taste is more important than texture but the best foods score high in both. There are very few foods I dislike due to their texture. Some cheeses I suppose.

I am far more sensitive to touch than to taste, and therefore tend to pick my foods more for the texture than the flavor.

I'm all over that too. I like to microwave them until they become a big bowl of warm mush

I can't eat oatmeal or jelly, among other things, because I find the texture that disgusting. I care about taste, too, but if the texture's wrong, I can't eat it, and if I try, I throw up:frustrating:.

There's a difference in texture between green apples and red apples?
Yeah - green apples tend to be a lot firmer and crisper. Red apples can get mushy very easily.

huh, maybe I do have a texture issue as I definitely prefer green apples based on the texture and the acidity.

Some foods I like, because of the texture. Some foods I dislike, because of the texture. The same can be said for taste. Then there's smell, presentation, aesthetics, etc.

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only food texture weirdo, even if we're picky about different things. In my case, I go for things with a homogeneous texture - bread without seeds, chips, crackers, MEAT, mashed potatoes... I have issues with most fruit and vegetables. I like corn (don't know why it's an exception) and I've learned to handle green beans. I love the taste of french onion soup - but leave the onions in the bowl.
