Food Drawback Quotes

Champagne does have one regular drawback: swilled as a regular thing a certain sourness settles in the tummy, and the result is permanent bad breath. Really incurable.

Truman Capote, 'Answered Prayers' (1975)


Corn on the cob:The greatest drawback is the way in which it is necessary to eat it.....It looks awkward enough: but what is to be done? Surrendering such a vegetable from considerations of grace is not to be thought of.

Harriet Martineau, an English visitor to Massachusetts when introduced to corn on the cob (1835)
