The plight of the onion
Wednesday, December 05, 2012 3:10 PM

“Give me a big slab of onion on it, please,” is something you may say when you order a sandwich in a restaurant.

However, many people even though they might like the taste of onions, don’t like the foul mouth odor they get after consuming one. This is especially true if they are going to be smooching on someone.

One belief is that if both parties eat onions, they will not notice any bad mouth odor when getting close to one another. Does anyone know if this is true?

I like onions. I love their taste and I love to cook with them. To me making a pot of chili without onions, just doesn’t seem right.
