Why do brussels sprouts have a bad rap?

spkspk | Aug 27, 2008 02:03 PM

I just finished my lunch of balsamic glazed pork chop, brown rice and brussels sprouts (all leftovers from dinner last night). As I was eating, I was relishing each and every bite of brussels sprout and I couldn't help but wonder why they have such a bad rap.

While I was growing up, I seem to remember brussels sprouts referred to as the dreaded vegetable no kid wanted to eat on sitcoms, books, etc. Now growing up in a Korean household, I had never actually had brussels sprouts myself when I was younger, so I always wonder - would I have like brussels sprouts as a kid or is it something I would have only enjoyed as an adult?
