I am somewhat of a chocolate snob. Hershey's chocolate is not worth the calories. I am becoming a yarn snob. Are you a snob of any sort?

But, I *do* have fiber sensitivities so unsure if that counts as true snobbery; have really bad reaction to some fibers & high-micron-count fibers. Very color aware, always have been, & some colors - ewww! Tea? Just know what tastes best to me. :-)

I'm like that when it comes to color too. We almost bought a car but the radio digital numbers were bile yellow. I chose the car with the blue digital numbers my husband can't understand it.

I'm actually usually a snob against snobs. I get really annoyed by people who refuse to eat or try something for snobbish reasons, people that make fun of others' taste or choices, or who act too good for something. I'm an anti-snob snob.

I don't care for yellow mustard much, either. Loops Deli mustard is my favorite. Poultry works for me if it's organic or Kosher, but the stuff from grocery stores tastes like cardboard and I doubt is even healthy.

Get it fresh from a Kosher butcher shop, if possible; not the frozen stuff in a grocery store. Then if you still don't like it, you really don't like it.

Warrior Within was disappointing, but Two Thrones really tied it all together and redeemed the series in my opinion. I'd give it a try. I didn't make it past that one, but not because I was disappointed.
