Are you a snob if you simply like fancier varietals but do not care what someone else consumes? I like my strong ales (10% or more) but if you like Bud Light, have at it. 

Just shut up and drink, Don't tell me about what you know.

I hate people who think they are connoisseurs of coffee, wine, craft beer or anything else. Snobs. 

Is there anybody you don't hate?

I like coffee too. I don't feel the need to describe everything about it. 

That's cause you're weird

No such thing. 
 

The English have no taste buds. 
 

English cooking sucks. 

Actually, traditional English cooking tended to be bland. That explains why Indian and Jamaican curry restaurants are popular in the UK.

I visited England and stayed in London, Manchester, York and Rochdale, a small town in Yorkshire from where an ancestor left in 1830. The Fish and chips were great.  Shepherd's pie was good and so was Yorkshire pudding. Bangers and mash and spotted dick did not impress me.

Just think exman...if I was a dickhead ultraliberals I'd be saying something like this belongs in the free rom since it is not political in nature.

I wonder why spotted  dick is sold in American supermarkets.

 

And marmite.

All I did here was simply express my personal opinion about English food.

You seem to me to be just another ignorant Trumpster.

It was actually an insult, and not particularly funny.

The article on coffee I found to be fascinating. \

It merits far more profound discussion than what it has received.

I attribute this to a lack of intellectual curiousity of members of this forum, who are quite low of brow, know little of history and have no desire to ever be smart.

Of course, all foods appeal to at least some people. What I taste is not necessarily what you taste.  The same applies to music, fiction, films and many other things. It is a matter of taste involved, and tastes will vary.

I tried spotted dick only because of the silly name and to get a laugh from by wife and mother who I was visiting England with. Perhaps a different chef might prepare it as a tastier dish.

"dick" is the German word for "fat".

Spotted dick is made with beet fat, or suet.

It is a dessert, made with raisins or currents.

The dick in "spotted dick"  predates the slang usage of the word "dick" in American English.
