    onion

    Onion belongs to the ‘bulb’ family, but is generally grouped as a vegetable or spice since no one ever talks about ‘bulbs’. It’s eaten all over the world, but mostly in China. Although many varieties exist, tasting each one is possible given that the will to do so is strong enough. A popular newspaper owes its namesake to this food.

    Taste
    When unprepared, onion tastes terrible. Despite this undisputed fact, onion often comes served raw in sandwiches and salads due to laziness and/or incompetence. Onion is often pan–fried or boiled until it is soft and edible. It offers a flavor that’s sort of like a milder version of garlic.

    onion became an official snack on May 15th, 2012.
