Truffle Oil - Yeah or Neah????

I am borrowing a trusted format here to understand your feeling about truffle oil.

I have heard and read every gamut of opinions - from it being the most luscious and delectable thing ever created... to Scott Conan saying truffle oil has no business in any fine dining establishment because they're not made from real truffles.

All I know... the last few times I have eaten anything truffle, i tend to get acid attacks!!! So now, when people push on me truffle oil when in a restuarant, I am not impressed.

Is it that my tastebuds are not very refined?? Am i just not ready for such a delicacy?? Or are you on Scott Conant's side and think truffle oil is something that's does not belong on our food?
