People Explain Which Foods They Hate But Everyone Else Loves

I love food. My waistline can testify to that. But there are plenty of foods I just can't handle. Some menu items are just not meant for human consumption. And it always seems to be the items the rest of the world thinks are "just great." But you're all being brainwashed. For example, liver has one home, in the body, not eaten, still living as a functioning organ; unless you're a serial killer. Let's see who can contribute to the list.

Redditor u/king_travis12 wanted to discuss the menu by asking:

What Is A Food Everyone Likes But You Hate?

Also, avocado... it's green, it's slimey and it's gross. Also, why eat anything with a massive pit in the center? You could kill a person with that pit. My list is long, let's add to it...

Texture...

"I wish I liked sushi. It's so aesthetically pleasing and looks enjoyable to eat. But something about it just throws me off. I think it's a texture thing."

- NomAdrianna

Iced...

"Cake with lots of icing."

- PineapplePizzaAlways

"I'm from Scandinavia, we have whipped cream instead of icing on our cakes. Cake, whipped cream lots of strawberries is the classic one, lots of people here don't like buttercream icing at all. I can eat it but not too much, it's so horribly sweet."

- pandas_in_the_attic

Yuck!

"Beets taste like juicy dirt."

- cocobellahome

"When I was a kid I friggin' loved pickled beets, I would wake up in the middle of the night and sneak into the kitchen to eat 'em. As an adult... bleh."

- libra00

The Much Way

"Mushrooms. I get it, so much aroma and flavour comes out when its cooked but i hate it."

- cywinr

"It's absolutely the texture for me. I love the flavor of mushrooms, and will sometimes order a steak with a mushroom sauce, but the fungi themselves get moved aside or onto my partner's plate."

"I also recently tried a side dish made with rice, mushrooms, and I think another vegetable or two, and thoroughly enjoyed it because I couldn't feel the rubbery mushroom on it's own between my teeth."

- kittenburrito

Roll Away

"It's a candy, but Tootsie rolls. It's like a dark chocolate but just a taffy and it's gross in my opinion."

- VortexianAy

Ok now, sushi is the bomb. And tootsie rolls? Well that person needs some therapy. I mean to each their own, but yummy is yummy and yuck is yuck. Although I do waffle on mushrooms; it all depends. Continue...

Tasteless...

"Celery. I hated it as a kid because it tastes like butt, I hate it as an adult because it still tastes like that. I don't see the appeal in it. the ONLY time I will ever willingly eat it is if it's boiled in a soup."

- rocket___goblin

Bad Dressing

"Does ranch count?"

- LucidSpaceLizard

"Eeey, ranch despising Mid-Westerner! I tolerated it until I worked in the restaurant industry... freaking fine dining and people are asking for ranch with their steaks 🤢 or doing dishes and the constant stink of hot ranch water- UUGGHHH."

- brusquebb

Nuts

"Coconut."

- saaameheight

"When it comes to coconut, I can handle the flesh of coconuts and the taste of coconut milk, water and other coconut flavoured foods and drinks. But the moment you start putting coconut flakes on my food. I'm out, hate it on my food. That's why I don't like lamingtons, Ferrero coconut chocolate, and any food with coconut flakes."

- BlightFantasy3467

Drink Up

"Not a food, but I'm going to say beer. I find it disgusting. Whenever people find that out they always feel the need to tell me "It's an acquired taste. Give it time". I'm 31 years old. I've tried all different kinds of beers in different settings and paired with different things and it just isn't for me."

"At this point I'm not going to force myself to drink something I find disgusting just to hope that maybe one day I'll like it. I didn't like it the first time I tried it when I was 19 and I still don't like it now 12 years later."

Happy Food GIF by Subway Sverige Giphy

"Tomato. I can handle sauce as long as there are no chunks."

- brokendowndryer

I like Cookies

"Cake with that oil based icing you get from the grocery store is freaking disgusting. I could have shovel that crap by the spoon full down my throat as a kid, but as an adult, even a little bit of it makes me gag. I've grown out of cake, too. Don't like it anymore. Pie and cheesecake are great, but cake is gross."

- Endulos

Wine Please!

"IPAs. No thanks."

- TomKroesh

"I don't mind them. I just hate the fact that they're in style and have displaced loads of other brews from shop shelves. I don't need a choice of dozens and dozens of (if we're honest) extremely similar IPA's in tiny cans with wanky artwork. Get some more variety. And more stouts exist than Guinness. Maddening."

- Megamoss

Caffeine Issues

Coffee Fry GIF Giphy

"Coffee. I really feel like I'm missing out on all the fancy different types too!"

"Edit: I do however like coffee flavoured things like tiramisu."

Cheesed

"American cheese."

- clubJenn

"Kraft has a deli style American that is also pretty good. I swear they changed something along the way, because it's how I remember American cheese used to be."

- AltUniverse_1

Maybe Chicken?

"I can't get excited about steak. I'd rather cut it up, throw in some cheese and salsa, and wrap it up in a tortilla."

- Gua_Bao

"So I don't even bother going to high end steakhouses anymore. Once you get good enough at cooking something like Steak yourself, you can make the same meal at your own home for 1/5th the price of a steakhouse. Sous Vide, a decent grill, and not being afraid of Butter or Worcestershire makes the magic happen."

- wardsac

From the Sea

The Little Mermaid Disney GIF Giphy

"If it's from the sea, it's not for me."

- Radagast_the_rainbow

"You see, basically anything that's ever touched water is something I don't like. Seafood is horrid, but for some reason I don't even like freshwater fish."

- MagicJoshByGosh

No Green

"Avocados."

- neenerneener3

"Thank God someone else said it. I really can't do avocados. So little flavor and a gross consistency, yet people are almost always floored when I say I don't like them. Yes that includes guac for me too."

- danielj1632

garbage

"Raisins."

- doubloon146

"I also hate raisins, but love oatmeal cookies and people always whine that I don't put raisins in them. Yeah, because oatmeal cookies are great just. You don't need to pollute them with garbage."

- TLDR2D2

"My brother described them as zombie eyes when he was in kindergarten on the star student of the week form. Foods you hate: "raisins because they are like zombie eyes."

- DaisyDuckens

Soured

"Goat cheese. It tastes like I'm eating a barnyard."

- Ohfuscia

"Seriously, to me it tastes like if you let your cream cheese get sour from sitting at room temperature for too long. Its sour and in my opinion sour shouldn't be the dominant flavor of any cheese. It just makes me think it's gone bad."

- jerrythecactus

Bad Ingredients

"Ketchup, Mayo, Mustard, and Relish. I'm that person who has to ask for none of that stuff on their burger or sandwich every time they order. Hated them since I was a kid. I do enjoy most other sauces though, like hot sauce, bbq, sweet and sour."

- FromDwight

Why do people hate veggies? We have to give healthy a chance; unless it's avocado... remember, yuck. But long live tomatoes. Truth is, all of our palettes are a mess. Just eat up.

People Divulge The Scariest Thing That's Ever Happened To Them

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

The worst part of having breasts is Florida.

I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
