Favorite foods can be messy to handle but delicious to savor

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

At Avocado Bleu, while celebrating its third anniversary in business, we asked customers, “What is a food or dish that you love, but don’t eat it often because it’s so messy?”

Frank Dunne, Hilton Head Island: “The Stuffed Avocado with chickpeas here at Avocado Bleu. It’s totally delicious, but a pain in the neck to eat.”












Nina Symonds, Hilton Head Island: “Tacos. You take the first bite and it completely falls apart.”











Howard Johnsa, Hardeeville: “Raw oysters on the half shell. I love them and could eat three dozen. But they’re messy.”












Carol Hudson Rabel, Greenville: “Barbecue ribs and wings. Sticky, messy. Love it.”











Cori Catto, Beaufort: “My kids love oranges and tangerines, but I don’t like to peel them. The stickiness gets on my hands, and all that white stuff gets under my nails.”
