Love them. Grits-rookie protip: they are a savory dish, not a sweet dish. No honey, sugar, etc need be applied, or should be.
All I can tell you is that in Alabama, you get grape jelly to stir in your breakfast grits. As a kid, I was always gonna be different...which resulted in the Strawberry Jelly Incident.

Tough for a 10-yr old kid to issue a public apology on the courthouse steps...

I like em’ fine.
They’re not super common around here lately, except as Shrimp N Grits.
I’m odd, I don’t like shrimp.
It makes me think of bait.
I digress.
Grits are fundamentally boring, like cream of wheat or oatmeal.
They need kicking up.
I like em’ with gravy, salsa, pico de gallo, and bacon.
Bacon fixes everything.

Have now lived the majority of my life in the South. Can't get past it is just a poor second to rice. Another one of those dishes that people like to mask to make it taste like something other than paper. It is me, don't worry I am in the vast minority.

Just a part of everyday life for me growing up, no different than eggs or sausage. I still eat them every now and then. Nothing special.

Spent 9 years down south. Music's great, grits s#*k. I had them by more than a few cooks and they always disappoint.

Where I come from (SE Texas), it's pronounced gree-its.

Love 'em with butter and a little Tabasco. Never sugar or syrup.
