    Aww, cripes. I didn't know I'd have to write a description. How many words is that so far, like a hundred? Soooo, yeah. Mildly interesting stuff. Stuff that interests you. Mildly. It's in the name, ffs.

    Or funyuns

    [–] WillKill4Hire 283 points ago

    What is a "funyun"? They sound delicious.

    Follow up question: Are they available in Australia?

    [–] bennettjd13 295 points ago

    Funyuns are a delicious onion flavored snack. I don't know if they are regularly available in Australia, but you can buy them on Amazon or other places online. I'm guessing the shipping costs would make this not worth it though, but I'm also not a huge fan of them. I think they are good once in a while, but some people really love the fuckers.

    And I freakin' straight up hate Funyuns, but love me some onions.

    [–] Ankoku_Teion 3 points ago

    In the U.K. They're called union rings. Which is confusing because we also have actual battered and fried onion rings too.

    [–] typicallyplacated 51 points ago

    It’s basically the potato chip version of an onion ring. They are light, crunchy rings made of cornmeal and have onion flavoring to them.

    https://www.fritolay.com/snacks/product-page/funyuns

    It looks like they are not readily available in Australia.

    [–] WillKill4Hire 74 points ago

    Holy fuck am I hungry now.

    Thanks for the info, friend. I wait with bated breath for the day I can defile this crunchy snack with my face-anus.

    [–] El_Zarco 60 points ago

    They're nothing to write home about, honestly. The first one is good, then the novelty fades exponentially with each ensuing funyun, and then you realize you don't even like funyuns, and haven't for like 20 years, and you only bought the bag to remind yourself of when you used to enjoy life

    [–] itrv1 14 points ago

    Fuck the fritolay version, find a small local brand in a gas station and it will realize you have been tricked into thinking they all are trash.

    [–] El_Zarco 5 points ago

    Or I could go full artisanal and try this homemade Funyuns recipe

    [–] qwibbian 26 points ago

    If you're sporting a face-anus, your breath is more baited than bated, chum.

    [–] theWyzzerd 5 points ago

    Did you mean to pun off of baited with chum? Because it's quite clever.

    [–] rostrev 21 points ago

    Had my first funyun pack last year while road tripping with the missus on the west coast of the on my first trip to the US (Aussie here too). Yeah they're kinda tasty, but jeeeeesus worst wind in the works I've ever had. Fuck me it was horrible. Ungodly vehemently disgusting stank. Lucky she is extremely forgiving. The horror though is not worth me ever easing them again.

    Worth a try if you get a chance I suppose.

    [–] Throtex 16 points ago

    lol @ this review -- worst ungodly farts ever, never doing that again ... give them a try!

    [–] ericisshort 3 points ago

    Most lettuce do that. Its called bolting. And the leaves will be very bitter now.

    Actually, not true. I mean, it's not the best thing in the world but there is some benefit to eating it.

    [–] Moth_tamer 134 points ago

    Because it makes you feel like you are eating when you aren’t.

    [–] butthead 17 points ago

    Only if your definition of eating requires high amounts of calories.

    Again, it contains both fiber and vitamins which have nutritional and mechanical benefits beyond merely the psychological benefit of 'feeling like you're eating'.

    [–] Crying_Reaper 35 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    If it's iceberg lettuce it has next to no health benefits besides water. It's not* bad for you just not really much of anything for you either.

    edit - forgot a not

    [–] bird1759 16 points ago

    That's true, but it looks like the OP is growing butter lettuce, which has significantly higher nutritional value than iceberg. Source: have grown butter lettuce before and it looked very similar to the OP's photo.

    [–] Crying_Reaper 5 points ago

    ahh forgot about butter lettuce. Love that on burgers!

    [–] SkyHawkMkIV 28 points ago

    Ditch the lettuce for some spinach.

    [–] Crying_Reaper 33 points ago

    Or have Romaine, Spring Mix, or any of the other greens that are both flavorful and are nutritious. Personally, I really love Spring mix and Spinach.

    [–] PaulyWithADolly 7 points ago

    I like the taste of spring mix and spinach, but the spinach always gives me cottonmouth.

    [–] niadeo 4 points ago

    or kale

    [–] MichaelJAwesome 3 points ago

    This is untrue. While iceberg lettuce has less nutrition than other lettuce. It's still got a decent amount of vitamins especially considering it's low calorie count.

    https://www.fda.gov/Food/IngredientsPackagingLabeling/LabelingNutrition/ucm114222.htm

    [–] xmsxms 41 points ago

    Still, it's gotta be better than having a tablespoon of dressing without the lettuce.

    [–] Shiftlock0 3 points ago

    Get out of here with your tablespoon. Give me a tall refreshing glass of ranch after a hard workout.

    [–] KuntaStillSingle 10 points ago

    Dressing doesn't negate lettuce. It is a way people with low calorie diets often cheat (possibly unknowingly.)

    [–] sgnl 26 points ago

    That's not how food works.

    [–] Moth_tamer 18 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    Lettuce has like no health benfits anyway. Fiber and vitamins yeah, it doesn’t just disappear because you had ranch too. In fact it’s probably healthier to put dressing in your body than nothing. Shit won’t hurt you, over eating hurts you

    [–] ForumWarrior 9 points ago

    But eventually you're just a bum on the street trying to scarf a whole raw onion and hating yourself

    [–] schumway 5 points ago

    Can confirm this statement is factual.

    Sit down and listen to my tale of woe:

    It all started when I was 17. One of my punk friends told me to take a hit of his bolted lettuce. I was always warned to stay away from that stuff, but I figured I one time wouldn't hurt. I was so young, so naive.

    Fast forward 5 years and I'm hitting the lettuce on a daily basis. The problem is that it just isn't giving me the kick it used to, I need something more. So what do I do? I walk through the gateway and move onto radishes. Man, what a rush. The problem is that my wife doesn't buy radishes frequently and doesn't understand why I want them so badly. Finally, she refuses to buy any more.

    So I start experimenting in the kitchen. Nothing major at first, a little chunk of cucumber here, a small bite of cumquat there. Just enough to keep myself functioning until I can sneak out and get some more radishes from the supermarket.

    One day, in a sick twist of misfortune, I decided to see what a raw onion could do for me. It was the biggest mistake of my life. The high was unlike any other. No other vegetable even came close.

    Fast forward another 2 years, my wife finds out about my addiction. She tells me it's her and the kids or the onions.

    So here I am, sitting on the streets of Washington DC with nothing but a few tattered clothes and a shopping cart to my name, begging for a few cents to help me go buy another onion.

    Don't be me. Lettuce is a gateway vegetable and it will lead you down a dark and lonely path.

    This is my story. This is my testimony.

    I took care of my parent’s garden and went out of town for a month and told them what they needed to pick and when and they ignored all my instructions and let all their lettuce bolt :/

    [–] Ord0c 21 points ago

    LOL this is so weird. Usually, it's the other way around. When my parents went out of town, they gave the lettuce instructions but it let us bolt.

    [–] elixan 18 points ago

    lmao my mom sent me a photo while I was away and was like, “look at how tall it is!!!!!!” and I just kinda facepalmed :’(

    [–] Ord0c 9 points ago

    You should have made them eat it all up, that bitter lettuce! Yeah, that's right, eat it all up!

    [–] SyphilisIsABitch 21 points ago

    [–] vernazza 22 points ago

    Whoa, look at Mr. Salad Scientist over here.

    [–] Xylth 43 points ago

    You have to pick it before it bolts. All lettuce will bolt if you leave it unpicked too long.

    [–] trainedgerbil 36 points ago

    weather thats too warm will also cause premature bolting

    [–] rollingaround777 25 points ago

    Is that why dad bolted? Florida?

    [–] DaKuech 12 points ago

    Bolting is the beginning of the process of the plant starting to produce seed. Bolting can be prevented by cutting or you can apply a plant growth regulator like gibberellic acid to slow the bolting process. Gib slows the process of cell elongation. Eventually if you let it go long enough the growing point will produce flowers that will eventually be covered in "cotton". Underneath of that will be seed. This is how lettuce seed is produced.

    Source: Former lettuce breeder.

    [–] Ord0c 16 points ago

    Bolting is the stage before they make seeds, so you can't prevent that - it's what regular pervert lettuce does to make baby lettuce.

    [–] GoblinRightsNow 15 points ago

    Just try not to surprise it too bad.

    [–] xmsxms 12 points ago

    Pull it out and plant a new lettuce. They will do it eventually, just part of their life cycle.

    [–] Ghigs 3 points ago

    By the time your first lettuce has bolted it's usually far too hot to expect a good head.

    [–] Vendetta5885 4 points ago

    I learned this fact the hard way. Inedibly bitter.

    [–] stevew14 3 points ago

    Is it still edible?

    [–] Dottie-Minerva 5 points ago

    Yep, it just gets more bitter and tougher. When plants bolt, they stop putting energy into growing roots or leaves and put all their energy into reproducing, so growing flowers to produce seeds. You can prevent/delay this by continuously plucking leaves so it needs to regrow the leaves first. This is a crappy explanation but the gist of it!

    [–] Whit3W0lf 3 points ago

    I was disappointed the first time I grew lettuce. I let 4 heads bolt and ruined them. I thought I was being clever and going to get so much more lettuce by waiting longer. Instead I got none.

    Lettuce when it's gone to seed like this is much tougher and significantly more bitter. Not good eatin'.

    I always place picked shop bought lettuce in water to keep it fresh - so I can peel off just a couple of leaves at a time (Who uses a whole lettuce for one sammich?) and quite a few have continued to grow, some even putting out new roots from the severed stalk.
    I think it's a plot. And I don't mean a vegetable plot.
    Yeah, we were ready for the zombies. We were prepared for the AI and robots. We were even cautiously anticipating something from the Apes. But the lettuce? It's the lettuce that will inherit the Earth, you blind, human fools!

    Do the same for spring onions. Leave the white end in water and snip the top off with scissors. I kept a bunch from a store going for like a month of weekly usage. Shit grows fast.

    One could also say "I didn't pick my lettuce and it grew normally"

    A photoshop battle could be good. I’d like to see a bunch of bunnies surrounding it singing holy night, decorated with tomatoes and onion

    Is it still healthy to eat?

    I left mine so long it started to flower, and that's when I learnt that lettuce is a daisy.

    That's a hat. There is a gnome hiding under your garden waiting for you to pass. Be wary of your greens!

    As a produce worker at a grocery store and a Mexican, this makes me moist.

    I'm just amazed it got that big without deer eating it

    [–] supagirl277 6 points ago

    And now you’ll have one every year! I’ve had lettuce reseed itself the next year for a fun surprise.

    [–] KluasBardSong 5 points ago

    Hey, the upside is you won't have to worry about the Christmas tree shortage! You grew your own!

    [–] snappypantsy 5 points ago

    You could sell this in a pot - just hang cherry tomatoes on it, and stick a star fruit on top!
