Hey fellas. Let's say some idiot bought a bag of frozen broccoli that he later found out to be seasoned with herbs and garlic. Nothing wrong with that. He likes herbs and garlic.. except the garlic tasted so strong and very unnatural! So now he's got a bag and a half full of broccoli that pretty much stinks with some unnatural gooey garlic paste thing. It really tastes awful and all he wants to do is undo that garlic taste as much as possible. He promises to buy fresh next time.
