We've gotten so adventurous with recipes.

That is great, but some things need not be consumed.

Not every ingredient is meant to be mixed!

At least that is the opinion of certain stomachs.

Some chefs need to calm down a bit.

Except for pineapple on pizza.

That is genius!

Redditor Simple_Anywhere_8337 wanted to discuss recipe items that may not be the most popular, so they asked:

"What's an ingredient you hate but most people like?"

There are so many unnecessary ingredients.

I don't know where to start, but Reddit sure did.

It's Crap

"I hate when people add stevia to desserts."


"For me, Stevia gives a weird mint-like crappy flavor to things. Other people look at me like I’m crazy when I try to explain it, so it might just be me."


Maybe Merlot?

"Artificial rose flavor."


"I LOVE rose flavor. I don't know anyone else that does though lol."


"Soap, it tastes like soap."


Feels Weird

"Fennel seeds. It's the one food aversion i haven't been able to conquer."


"I love fennel but I hate tasting the seeds in in meat."


"My wife and I recently discovered meatballs as a topping for pizza that is a perfect replacement for Italian sausage. No fennel, all the good fatty meaty goodness."


I'll Pass

"I’m gonna hit you with a real one. I don’t like Macarons. Their taste and texture is super underwhelming compared to how they look. Visually they look amazing, but I take one bite and just wish I made brownies."


"They’re just… disappointing. They look so unique and delicate."

"And you hear all the time about how difficult they are to make. And they’re so expensive because of that. And then you finally taste one and it’s just a decent cookie. Nutty and sweet. Light and crispy outside. Chewy inside. What really changes the flavor is whatever cream or jam you put inside."


My Stomach

"Canned spinach shouldn't exist. Good fresh, however."


"It could be worse. I'm guessing you've never seen the canned cheeseburger they have in Germany."


Yeah. Popeye was crazy. Fresh spinach only.

Flaked Out

"Coconut flakes. they make me cringe, it’s a texture thing. My dad always got german cake for his birthday’s and every year I would try it and I just… shivers can’t do it."





"Smells and tastes like feet to me and I don't understand why. I'm even born and live in a region of the world where these things are grown. Love the Thai papaya salads though."


"Tastes like puke to me. Gag."


Never Again



"Funny story..."

"When I was little I hated brownies because there was always walnuts in them. I would try to eat around the walnuts and just get the good chocolatey bits. I wished there was a brownie without nuts. It blew my mind when I learned that brownies without walnuts were the standard. I never let my mom bake brownies with walnuts again, and when I make them I never put walnuts in."


Full Hate

"Truffle oil."


"I feel like I can taste it with my whole skull and I hate it."


"Most truffle oil is artificial and is actually a petroleum byproduct."

"The truffle industry is a big scam. Not just truffle oil, everything"

"It's like someone took some dish water, turned it into a solid green stick, and added hair to it. Easily ruins every meal it's in."


"Thank you!! Everybody looks at me like I have three heads when I tell them I don't like celery."


Now see... I like celery.

To each their own.

Which items do you never put on your grocery list that we should add to this one? Let us know in the comments.

"The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."

An aged old proverb reflecting on when people perform what they think are well-meaning, helpful acts, but in reality, only worsen a bad situation.

A day seldom goes by when people won't notice an example of this, either on the news, in the book they're reading, or simply walking down the street.

This could be anything from someone making promises to help out, but never delivering on them, to saving money for a less expensive cleaner, which turns out to radiate toxic fumes, resulting in the building being closed for an indefinite length of time.

Ideas which might seem good in theory, but are impractical, illogical, or even harmful, in practice.

Unless you grew up with the most doting parents on the planet, there's probably a toy or two that you really wanted as a kid, but never received.

Whether it was too expensive for your parents to afford, or something like a noisy toy that was going to be way too annoying for your parents, there are probably some toys that you really missed out on as a child.

When it comes to fast food places, no two places are the same. Wendy's spicy chicken nuggets are far superior to those from McDonald's, while no one does milkshakes quite like Dairy Queen.

I have always preferred burgers from In-N-Out, but my brother will always go for Five Guys.

There will always be debates when it comes to which establishment does fast food the best.

The biggest debate surrounds the ultimate side dish: french fries.

No one can ever seem to agree on which fast food chain has the best french fries, but that doesn't stop the debate. Redditors are engaged in that very debate as we speak!

People Dispel Common 'Facts' That Are Total BS

Some people will just believe anything.

And if you call a statement a fact long enough, many people take it as gospel.

Some facts are absolute truths, others can be malleable.

Science changes.

History evolves.

Lies are exposed.

And research is an actual art form.
