Would You Rather... (food edition)

I have about 45 minutes to write a post before I have to jump in the shower. I haven't dyed my hair in about three months and the grays make me cringe every time I look in the mirror--so I finally decided to just quit procrastinating and do it. (I'm sitting here with dye in my hair and figured I'd write a blog post while I wait.)

I had the idea to do a "would you rather...?" post (responding to difficult questions of "would you rather _____ or _____?") and when I looked for ideas online, I saw SO many in different categories. So I'll do a "food edition" here and then maybe another time when I need something to write about, I'll choose a different category. (These questions were found at this website.)

Okay, here goes...

Would you rather eat a raw onion or two raw heads of garlic?

*This one is hard! I love onions and garlic, but eating them this way would be kind of torturous. I think I'd rather eat a raw onion. I think I could be done with it faster than the garlic.

Would you rather have to eat one jar of jam every day for the rest of your life, or never be able to eat bread again?

*I guess I'd choose to never be able to eat bread again. I don't eat a lot of bread anyways (if it was pasta, well, this would be a much harder question!) and I just can't imagine eating an entire jar of jam every day. I only eat jam a couple of times a year.

Would you rather have the only beverage you can drink be water or the only food you can eat be salad?

*Hahaha! Everyone knows that my two least favorite foods are salad and yogurt. And I drink pretty much nothing but water now, so this one is easy. I'd choose to drink only water.

This was actually tonic water, not regular water. And it possibly maybe had vodka in it. But for the sake of this photo of me choosing water, we'll pretend it's simply water! ;)

Would you rather have cheddar popcorn or popcorn with movie theatre butter?

*Again, this one is easy. Movie theater butter all the way! I don't even like "real" butter on popcorn--I like the fake butter-flavored oil stuff. 

Would you rather have cake or cookies for dessert?

*Now THIS is a torturous question! The name of my blog would imply that I'd choose cookies. But over the years, I've grown to love cake even more than cookies. I'd say that cake is my favorite dessert! (Only if it has a good frosting to cake ratio--it's got to be like 50/50.

Would you rather live in a world with no caffeine or a world with no meat?

*I wouldn't mind either of these options, actually! I am WAY too sensitive to caffeine, so I don't drink much anyway (just a cup of black tea, and even that makes me jittery). If I didn't have a family, I would probably be vegetarian anyway (I don't really love meat, but my family does, so I just simplify dinner). I guess if I was going to choose one option, I'd get rid of the caffeine.

Would you rather eat pizza or ice cream as your own meal for the rest of your life?

*And THIS question--it's like someone was reading my thoughts. Pizza and ice cream are my two most favorite foods in the world. If I had to pick a savory food, I'd choose pizza. Sweet food, and I'd choose ice cream. I think if I had to choose one or the other to have for the rest of my life, I'd choose the pizza. (Surprised?)

I couldn't find a picture of me eating pizza, but I did find this picture of me eating freeze-dried Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream--my brother got a freeze dryer and asked what we wanted him to make--this was my choice! ;)

Would you rather be vegetarian or carnivorous?

*I guess I already answered this one... I'd be vegetarian!

If it meant you could save pizza from extinction, would you eat a cricket?

*I would totally eat a cricket. I would probably eat a cricket on a dare, if the stakes were good enough! Haha. 

If you were responsible for choosing whether the world would have bagels or donuts, which one would you choose?

*This one is hard only because it depends on the quality of the bagels or the doughnuts. Assuming they were both top-quality, I think I'd choose to have bagels. You could have sweet or savory bagels and there are tons of different combinations of toppings for them. I think everyone would get tired of doughnuts after awhile. (Well, except Jerry. He'd choose doughnuts, 100%.)

That was fun! Feel free to argue with my choices in the comments ;)


  1. I pretty much agree with every answer you gave except the cake/cookies. I’ve grown to really love a good cookie!

  2. I pretty much agree with every answer you gave except the cake/cookies. I’ve grown to really love a good cookie!

  3. This was fun! I agree with mostly everything you said except the bread vs jam, I cannot possible live without bread lol! And the caffeine vs meat, I'm pretty sure I have caffeine flowing through my veins at this point :) I always love a good game of would you rather!

  4. Cake! Cake! Cake! (and pizza) Loved this one.

  5. Some of these are super easy,( such as water to drink forever rather than salad to eat), but I'd go carnivorous. I never feel as full without meat!

  6. I have actually eaten crickets in a protein bar. It was weird. I love doughnuts, but only eat them once a year.

  7. Missing your posts. Hope everything is ok!

  8. Or I can just turn my phone off and on again. Sorry about that!!!


I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
