You never forget the worst things you've tasted.


Potato chips are a universally loved snack, and everyone has a favorite brand or flavor. Sometimes, potato chip companies think up a new flavor for the masses to enjoy. New things can be exciting, and customers flock to anything "limited edition" or brand new on the shelves. But with newness comes risk, and that new flavor can end up being the worst you've ever had.

Redditor u/eloncrustpizza asked people "What's the worst potato chip flavor you've ever tasted?" and many were able to recount times that their favorite snack disappointed them.

10. Leave it as a pastry

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
