Question

Guest

This is my first attempt at making one of these, so let me know what you think. Sorry in advance if it's not very clear or too easy.

You might call me crusty

If you eat me at school

But if you come to find me

You'll be nice and cool

My reputation won't fade

Though some avoid me like plague

But on the inside of course

I'm a main dish of sorts

I think it's an untoasted pop-tart cool for school.

Nice try, but I don't feel like this fits all of the lines.

None of these are what I had in mind. There are a couple hints I could give that would make it extremely obvious, so I'll save those for later. I could give a not so revealing hint, but if people prefer I can wait on giving it?

An Apple. :D

We find apples on trees , so if we find them we can stay cool.

And an apple a day keeps the doc away. So it is a main dish.

Not what I had in mind, and to the best of my knowledge, there aren't people that avoid apples like plague. But good thinking though.

I'm thinkin'...

oatmeal

Edit: just to elaborate:

1)at school kids eat oatmeal bars

2)oats have a lower summer heat requirement and greater tolerance for rain than other grains, so they're grown in cooler climates

3)lots of people are repulsed by oatmeal (me for one)

4)the word 'meal' is part of oatmeal

These could fit, but in my eyes, my intended answer fits more nicely.

When I mention avoiding like plague, I don't just mean they don't like it. For any food you can find some people that don't like it. It's more than just not liking it, or being repulsed by it.

Good thinking, but I think there's a better fit

shrimp/shellfish

Nikyma has it.

I more had in mind lobster, but it also fits for shellfish in general.

You might call me crusty

If you eat me at school

You're more likely to use the scientific term Crustacean, or a shortening of it, at school then just every day.

But if you come to find me

You'll be nice and cool

If you try to get lobsters, or go lobstering, obviously it would be nice, cool weather

My reputation won't fade

Though some avoid me like plague

Some people are terribly allergic to lobster/shellfish, so they must avoid all forms of it, but it still has a very well known reputation for being a specialty

But on the inside of course

I'm a main dish of sorts

Once you break the shell, on the inside you can find a main dish. Or, a Maine dish
