I have met so many people who are completely put off by them, but my guess would be that they ate grits that were not made properly. Often, a lot of northerners can be turned off by the texture of grits. It doesn't help that they typically have only tried them as the bland, microwavable packet, and/or lumpy and lackluster.

Also, as I've stated before, I am a vegetarian, my husband is not. For us, this is another easy meal to prep both ways. As another side note, if you live in an area where grits are more difficult to come by, it's easier than ever to purchase them thanks to the internet. You can have them delivered to your door with the quick click of a button.
