I hate flavored coffee as well. I like the simple life, I like my coffee black as well, no cream, no sweetener.

I started drinking coffee in my college days. At first I didn't like it and it tasted equally bad whether black, cream, sugar or both. I don't know why I kept drinking it (probably to wake up) but I figured if I was going to keep drinking it and it tasted bad anyway I might as well pick the easiest one to fix. I stuck with coffee black. I like the flavor these days. I guess it's an acquired taste.

I think when I was about 7 or 8 my parents talked me into trying no sugar in my hot beverages, tea and coffee. I think they wanted me to cut my sugar intake was I was pretty hyper. After a few days I acquired the unsweetened taste and have been drinking black ever since, including tea.

I feel lucky I don't like sugar or cream. I don't have to worry about the empty calories of sugar. I don't have to worry about the cream spoiling in the refrigerator. I don't have to concede to using some artificial creamer that doesn't taste as good. Black is simple.

I don't have to worry about cream spoiling in the fridge, either. It is used too fast.

I'm a no sugar, no cream person when it comes to coffee or tea, which I don't drink too much, anyway. But my parents didn't feed them to me when I was a kid. Do you ever wonder how much was sugar and how much was caffein? At that age? Caffeine and sugar, at 7 years old?

I consumed sodas too. They contained caffeine and sugar as well. There were no such thing as Diet Coke, which I consume daily today.

This is an interesting thread!

I am not opposed to adding things to old favorites or coming up with new combinations. The thing that bothers me is the use of artificial flavors to do it. We are exposed to so many artificial flavors that when we encounter the real thing it does not always measure up. The lemon is not lemony enough and the chocolate does not provide the ultimate chocolate experience etc...

I had a lot of fun figuring out how to use rhubarb in other dishes besides pie, cobbler, sauce. I would never have thought to combine rhubarb with cucumber, but it was very good. Nor would I have added rhubarb to curry. All the dishes were very tasty. Tonight, I tossed one stalk of chopped rhubarb in our tossed salad. Something I wouldn't have thought to do before. And, with 9 rhubarb plants, pie, cobbler, and sauce can get old really fast.
