Don't Accuse Me Of Being One!

Chestnut - this is an original riddle so shouldn't call you this.

Color me true,

Chestnut is a reddish-brown colour.

But don't call me blue.

A chestnut as a ha-ha joke so not sad or adult (but too old).

Roast me if you care,

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire.

Though grab my coat if you dare.

Chestnuts (especially the horse) have a prickly coat.

They find me throughout,

Chestnut meaning commonplace (conker sounds like conquer).

Delicious, don't you doubt.

Sweet chestnuts.

Are you a

Marshmallow?

Color me true,

You roast them.

But don't call me blue.

There can be blue flames in the fire you roast them in, or blue can mean sadness and marshmallows are pretty cheery.

Roast me if you care,

It is the best way to eat them.

Though grab my coat if you dare.

It is hot!

They find me throughout,

In a s'more.

Delicious, don't you doubt.

Almost solid sugar.

Title

maybe a softy because marshmallows are soft?

    $\begingroup$ I'm not sure about the coat, since in my experience that is the only thing to grab... $\endgroup$ – piojo Aug 23 '18 at 9:26

Is it:

Corn? Hopi maize is known as blue corn. It can be roasted. Its outer layer ("coat") is quite thick so it would be tough to grab it. Corn is pretty ubiquitous. It is also quite delicious. Plus, no one likes to be called "corny"!

Are you a:

Waffle?

Don't Accuse me of being one!

Waffle is an insult meaning brainless/dumb

Color me true

There is tons of recipes for "True Belgian Waffles" etc.

But don't call me blue

Don't google that (NSFW), as it is a rather unpleasently looking disease

Roast me if you care

Waffles can indeed be prepared by roasting them.

Though grab my coat if you dare

Waffles (Belgian Waffles in particular I believe) are often coated in sugar

They find me throughout

Waffles are not only found everywhere (almost every household has one person Knowing how they are prepared due to their recipes simplicity) There are also a LOT of different waffles throughout the world: American, Belgian, Liège, Hong Kong Waffles, etc. There are even variations like waffle cones for ice cream.

Delicious, don't you doubt.

Waffles are a staple in almost every country's breakfeast regiment. They are simply delicious.

First time posting on any SE, so I hope I didn't mess up the spoiler feature

Is this a

Chicken

?
 

Color me true
But don't call me blue

To be "Chicken" is to be "Yellow", not "Blue"

Roast me if you care
Though grab my coat if you dare

Roast chicken is delicious, but fresh out of the oven the skin will be very hot!

They find me throughout

Chickens are found worldwide

Delicious, don't you doubt

Roast chicken is delicious

 
But, most of all:
Don't Accuse Me Of Being One!

Nobody - Calls - Me - Chicken!

Are you a

Lobster/Crab?

Color me true

Lobsters turn red when cooked

But don't call me blue

Some lobsters are blue prior to being cooked

Roast me if you care

You can roast a lobster to prepare it

Though grab my coat if you dare

I think this refers to either the lobster snapping at you while alive or removing it's shell when dead.

They find me throughout

People hunt lobsters in many places

Delicious, don't you doubt.

Some people even seem to enjoy eating lobsters apparently

Title

Generic Person seems to be in a crabby mood
