Definitions of what shrooms taste like please?
    #4066688 - 04/17/05 11:08 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I've dreamt that I have enough fruit now to start experimenting with and I'd like to know what to expect as far as taste. I know shrooms don't taste "good" from what I've found in the search, but I'm more just looking for general descriptions so I might know sooner if they are bad somehow. For example I've heard if they taste salty it's not a good thing. They look fine, they have a strong mushroom smell... except maybe a little more metalic or acidic or something. I'm assuming they'll taste about like they smell? So they taste pretty much the same dry or wet? Thanks for your help!

I can't really say they taste like anything else.

I haven't found them to taste that bad. In fact I almost like the taste.

No offence to you, but this is a pretty stupid question.

You'll find out when you eat them, there's no use in asking people what they taste like.

Dont be an ass, im sure lots of people would like to know the answer to this question. Not everyone has had mushrooms before, and its a totally legitimate question.

Ok, this is my answer to the question at hand.

You know what a regular mushroom tastes like?
To me, a magic mushroom tastes simular to that, only with a nutty and bitter edge to it. Home grown seems more bitter to natural, but maybe thats just me.

None taked, but it's not a stupid question to me because I want to know... that's why I asked it.

I'm just looking for a rough general description so in case they taste like apples or salty or something I know not to eat anymore.

Alot of people don't mind the taste of the mushrooms. Some people can't stand them. I personaly don't mind the taste, it is the last thing that's on my mind before a trip.

I would second the "more nutty and bitter than a regular mushrooms".

eh, avoid gel caps, they make people nauseous.

are you referring to fresh or dried?

dried are kinda bitter and musty, and you'll quickly develop a gag reflex to the taste. their not god awful, but their not delightful to eat either.

fresh on the other hand is pretty neutral, but that all depends on whether you can tolerate eating fresh gourmet mushrooms, which is essentially what they taste like.

I've only had the regular white button mushrooms raw and I don't mint that taste at all. Not sure if those are considered "gourmet" though. As far as gagging, how does it compair to the vile taste of kava? I use to drink strong cups of kava daily for awhile... that's probably the worst tasting stuff I've ever had, but I could tolerate it.

They taste like regular raw mushrooms, with a musty taste. personally, it doesnt bother me.. i held them in my mouth for 15 min and then swallowed, and didnt even get a stomach ache.. its just like if you were to hold dirt in your mouth, it might not taste good but its not going to hurt you..

Gel caps are the best way I've found to eat them, I think the key is to use vegetable based caps and not gelatin based. As far as taste. Fresh they have a sickly sweet flavor that can be masked with ranch dressing, dry however they are just horrid little things. I can't really describe how they taste, other than, they taste how they smell only the texture is horrid. I hope thats helps, let us know after you eat some what you thought they tasted like.

shrooms make me gag as well.... im not sure if its relly the taste, because i luv gourmet mushies.. but those cubes are so hard to swallow..

i mostly eat mine with snickers, due to the nutty taste. it helps some, but i still gag a few times and it takes me forever to eat em.

tea is no prob, the onset is WAY short as hell, but the trip doesnt last as long, so i dont like that method.

Taste kinda like shit really.. i havent tasted shit before, but if i had i bet shrooms would resemble it in some way or fashion. some ppl mentioned nutty and bitter. if you drink a lot of wierd tea and eat asian herbals then u should be fine.

err...you can't 'define' a taste.

they taste mushroomy, surprisingly enough, but with their own little unpleasant twist. hard to describe. in terms of texture, they're more fibrous or stringy than regular mushrooms.

just munch them up man.

To me they taste almost identical to pumpkin seeds... I have a couple of friends who agree.

Like acrid, dry little monkey turds.

All you people can say they taste good, keep eating them and get back to to me after ten or twenty trips, then try and say they taste good.

i think different kinds of mushrooms taste different. cubensis (dried) to me, taste like sunflower butter, and i dont mind the taste at all. Never had fresh cubensis. Cyanescence (dried)...oh god..i really dont know how to describe it..just..blah..i try and cover it up by eating it with some oranges or something, but whenever i feel a cap on my toung, i gag. fresh cyanescence...eh, as said above, freshh seems very neutral...doesnt taste good, but does not taste bad.
