Do you like cilantro?

I read a study on how cilantro tastes to you has a lot to do with your genes. Scientists were able to pin down most cilantro haters as people with a shared group of olfactory-receptor genes, called OR6A2, that pick up on the smell of aldehyde chemicals. Aldehyde chemicals are found in both cilantro and soap.

If you are one of those anti-cilantro folks, at least you know that it’s not really your fault and you can blame your parents.

  • It's weird, when I eat store bought cilantro I enjoy it and it tastes good in guac or in a burrito, but I decided to grow some myself since it's so easy, and it tasted like soap.

  • I choose no but I don't think it tastes like soap. I only like very small amounts of it. If a recipe calls for 2 tbsp. I only use 1.

  • No it's horrible it sucks because it's hard to eat Mexican food because the taste of soap just overwhelms everything else I did know about the gene thing though. Apparently it's also true with watermelon and cucumber both of which I hate

  • It really tastes like soap and it's so annoying because when I get salads and stuff it's always cut into super tiny pieces and then I can't remove it...
