This is probably the wimpiest thing that you can say about something you're eating. Have you run out of good adjectives? Or don't you even possess a vocabulary? We hear it all the time when diners are interviewed on the Food Network's "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives."


Does it mean that something is merely okay…not really bad, but not especially good, not worth getting excited about, not worth eating again?


Unfortunately, we also often hear top-notch chefs describe something as tasty. If that's the best they can say about their creations, I'm not biting.


Tasty?!  Of course, everything is tasty. Even water.


But is it good tasty or bad tasty. Or are you only able to taste it…no opinion?


Useless word!
