Tired of election polls? Here's something fresh. . .

I'm a little late with this, but I just wanted to give some closure to my coconut poll by writing a post about it. I have always been a coconut lover. Almond Joy is my FAVORITE!! YUMM!! But, strangely enough, I have married a man who detests coconut. Actually, it's not strange, it's self-interested, because now whenever we're with company and are served coconut, I get HIS, too! heehee

We have an ongoing debate about whether it's more abnormal to hate coconut or to like it. So I decided to use the scientific method and place a poll right here on my blog so that we'd be sure to get an accurate demographic cross-section of the American public opinion. :)

Thank you, coconut-lovers, for proving me absolutely normal in my affinity for the sweet white flaky stuff! A SOLID majority of 58% definitively stated that they are always happy to eat coconut. This is in distinct contrast to the 35% who never touch the stuff, and the 5% who will abide it when fresh.

In your scientific research, you forgot to include a "I'll eat it on occasion. It is NOT my favorite." category. After marriage I've discovered that I only like toasted coconut, and only on occasion.

I think that it is mostly boys that detest it. Daniel does not like it. There's my scientific research and theory, based on the best slice of the American public! Great post, Michelle!

I agree with Becky. I think it's mostly guys who don't like it. But then, in general, guys seem to be more picky than ladies anyway. That's because guys are just silly and weird sometimes. Or is it the ladies who are silly and weird??! Or both?? I'm confused! =)

Did you make that pretty little cupcake? It is a very darling picture.

My husband totally LOVES coconut. I guess that throws out Becky's theory.

Either that, or Ryan's just an oddball. :)

I love coconut too. I have a recipe for coconut toast that is so yummy! Let me know if you would like it. Lashelle

Oooh, Lashelle, I would LOVE that recipe. If you send it to me, I'll post it! :)
BTW, the picture is from another blog--I probably should have given credit. Here's the link, including cupcake recipe http://dobetter.wordpress.com/2008/03/01/coconut-cupcakes/

Reading these posts is making me HUNGRY. I think that Malauna and Suzy-Q and Lashelle and Michelle should all send me yummy coconut treats over cyberspace!

Oh man! I always miss out on participating in the polls, they're always closed before I get back to checking the blog again (not just yours).

For the record, I'm a girl and I very much dislike coconut! I'll deal with it if I have to, but I would never choose it.
