When it comes to enjoying the foods we eat, ignorance is bliss.


We know what we crave and don't think twice about the edible delights we put in our mouths

But if we find out the nauseating truths about our favorite foods, would we still eat them?

Curious to know about unsettling food fact, Redditor KhaleesiDog asked:

"What's a gross fact about a common food we eat?"
You may want a bucket near your place at the table after hearing about some of these

Processed foods get a bad rep. They have been blamed for causing obesity and high blood pressure. Some foods like frozen pizzas and microwavable entrees are more processed than others.

Still they're very difficult to avoid – like the following:

Gross, To Be Frank

"There are an allowable amount of rat hairs allowed in hot dogs!"

"And bug parts. Probably sh*t too. I think it's just general foreign biological material, not anything in particular."

Cured Delights

"Salami and many other Italian deli meats are not cooked, they are cured."

"Raw meat is ground up and blended with spices and binders, then it's loaded into a casing and hung to dry in a curing chamber. Curing chambers are very precise pieces of equipment that keeps the humidity and temperature in the perfect range to encourage mold growth on the outside of the casings."

"So ya, salami is moldy uncooked meat...."

We Love It Anyway

"cheese is essentially a rotten milk roll waiting to be eaten for years and somehow I still eat it."

Taste Like Vomit

"American milk chocolate often contains small but measurable amounts butyric acid, either as a byproduct of how the chocolate is made or added to it on purpose as a preservative."

"Butyric acid is also produced by human gut bacteria, and is one of the noxious/smelly/foul-tasting components in vomit."

"The amount of butyric acid in American chocolate is small enough and Americans are usually so accustomed to it that we don't really notice, but, to non-Americans - especially Europeans, apparently - American chocolate literally tastes like puke."

​Artificial Goodness

"Artificial vanilla and strawberry flavouring used to be derived a chemical extracted out of a beaver's musk glands (near it's anus)."

Unwelcome Patrons

"As someone who did pest control for years, the vast majority of restaurants that you eat at have a rodent problem, a roach problem, or both. And quite a few of them are severe."

Whether you like it or not, you can't interfere with the laws of nature.

They Gotta Start Somewhere

"Mushroom are fungus that thrive in really sh*tty dirt."

The Thing About Figs

"Wasps go into figs to lay their larvae. They also have an enzyme called ficin that breaks down the deceased wasps into protein, which become part of the ripened fruit."

Cheese is made through the process of curdling milk – on purpose.

While that doesn't sound appetizing, the popular dairy product has always been a guilty pleasure for many people.

Just keep in mind that – unless it's blue cheese – the mold growing on any other cheese that's been sitting in your fridge should be tossed.

You wouldn't want to make the same mistake my roommate once made after eating rotten brie.

Long story short, I had to clean up after him.

Sex is fun. Sex is healthy. Sex should be enjoyed and always consensual. But often, sex can be dangerous, especially when you're trying out new things, like a new location.

Who hasn't thought about upping the adrenaline ante when it comes to sexytime? We've all been there. But some ideas really should just stay ideas.

Why break a hip or an arm just to make things a little more saucy? Just try a different room in the house, or the backyard, but bring bug spray.

And some areas in public are safety hazards for a reason.

Redditor u/playfulinvestment01 wanted to know about all the places we need to avoid when it's sexytime, by asking:

Animated movies meant for children have been known to sneak in a few dirty jokes here and there. After all, the parents have to sit through the movies with the kids too.

These "Easter eggs" can be found in virtually every movie meant for kids. It may go over our heads when we watch at age 10, but years later when we re-watch to enjoy a bit of nostalgia, we realize just how raunchy the creators were.

It's not just old movies from the 90s or early 2000s, some movies as recent as Frozen 2 have some moments of adult centered levity.
