It does have a little flavor, but it takes too much work to eat it. Too much chewing. Not really worth it.

And celery down the garbage disposal is a big :nono The "strings" are bad for it.

I, personally, don't think I've bought celery in a year. I will occassionally put it in my homemade potatoe salad, just for the crunchy effect.

That's why they're considered "negative calories" - they burn more calories to chew than you actually ingest from eating them.

That's the only vegetable I eat....It must be covered with enough peanut butter to drown the taste though...

They have more flavor as it gets closer to the center (heart) stalks. But yes, theres a slight flavor.

Celery is one of the few tastes I hate - along with horseradish , caraway and anise/licorice . I've tried to convince myself that it really isn't as bad as I think it is , but it doesn't work and I still hate it . I once lost a bet with my brother that I couldn't drink an entire can of Dr Brown's celery soda - fawk , I would've had an easier time drinking 12oz of Glidden later interior white :shake

I'm with Joel on this one. The only time Celery is good is when it's used as a "spice" in foods and WELLLLL cooked.

And what I hate even WORSE is celerey seeds. I love cole-slaw until you put that crap in it. :shake

They sell that in the ethnic part of the grocery stores by the matzo (the Hebrew food) I have to be in a certain mood for the celery soda. But I do like it.

I LOVE celery and yes it has a flavor. :D

One more thing.. this dude reminds me of a celery stalk -- its so funny cause its the first thing I think of when I see him. :lmao dont ask me why! (the guy on the right..from Scrubs)
