I love ham and pineapple on pizza.

I stand by it. It's not my favorite, but I love it.

Who wants to fight me?

Food is a serious issue.

And people are willing to squabble about all of it.

Some food mixing is a problem to many.

Redditor fizzyoranges287wanted to discuss aspects of food that some love yet haunts others. They asked:

"What’s your most controversial food opinion?"

People love their food. And they love all sorts of ingredients. Some are nonsense.

By the spoonful...

"Brown sugar is quite scrumptious on its own. I'm gonna get heart disease."

"When I make cookies it takes a lot of self control to not straight out eat right out of the brown sugar bag."

"recommended serving"

"Orange tic-tacs are not breath mints. They are candy."

GitaCote

"Fun fact, tic-tacs are mostly sugar but they get away with being called sugar free listing 0g of sugar in the nutritional facts because there's less than 1g per 'recommended serving.' Recommended serving size is set by the company and each tic-tac weighs less than 1g."

culinary creations...

"I want to expose the derps that think a macaroon and a macaron are the same thing and that it's 'a matter of pronunciation.' It's not, it's really not they are two vastly different culinary creations."

Theherringphish

"I'm Jewish and was very confused when macarons first became popular. I wondered why the go-to Passover cookie was suddenly being pronounced differently and everyone was going nuts over them. There's a great little macaron bakery near me, so I now have a tradition of bringing macarons to my family's annual Thanksgiving gatherings and macaroons to our Passover seders."

"Cabbage is criminally underrated."

"We have cabbage salad at least once a week. Cut up a half a head of red cabbage. Mix red wine vinegarette together with dijon mustard, some lemon juice, then use a veggie peeler and top the salad with a bunch of thin strips of parmesan to your taste. Mix and add some black pepper. Easy salad that is filling and cheap, and makes a great side for savory dishes."

The Best "Non" Soup

"The best way to eat chili is using tortilla chips as scoops."

blamethepunx

"Depending on the type of chili. Chunky Western-style steak chili is some of the best soup in the entire world imho, but stuff like Cincinnati chili is made to be eaten on things, not by itself."

I love chili in all possible ways, Just give me...

Salty, Crunchy

"Chips are good with (virtually) any meal."

"Avocado sucks."

eddmario

"This is controversial, but I agree with you. I’m extremely picky, but I at least try the food unlike some people. I’ve tried cilantro, onions, salsa, etc. But avocado is what gets to me most of the time with taco ingredients. The texture and taste are a bit too strong when it comes to taco ingredients. I always end up tasting the Avocado only when eating tacos."

Taco

"Tacos are better than most things."

guanwho

"jajajaja my hispanic coworker was complaining because her husband only wants to eat tacos and mine only wants to eat pizza, comfort food lol"

"Nuggets"

"Boneless wings are just chicken nuggets!"

TheSarcasticClam

"Nah, there's usually a big difference in the quality of the chicken inside the breading. 'Nuggets' are often 'formed' ground chicken paste made into nugget shapes. Proper 'boneless wings' are actual pieces of chicken, just with the bones removed, which are then breaded and fried. They taste very different, IMO. Nothing wrong with nuggets, if you like that, but they're different foods."

It's Disgusting!

"Okay this is a pretty universal opinion outside of my country, but here it's very controversial. I hate liquorice. It's disgusting honestly and i can't understand how people can eat it."

benjamindufa

"You don't know the half of it, though. You see, I'm from the US. I moved to Norway. I hate licorice, but folks here definitely do not. I've seen licorice flavor in sausages. Freaking sausages."

"Did you know Extra sells salted licorice gum? And that licorice ice cream sauce is a thing? Do you realize how much I really want to like licorice ice cream because it looks cool? Alas, I do not. Licorice is hiding in the corners, waiting to assault my mouth with its vile flavor."

Ummm...

"I like instant mashed potatoes."

"I don't let steak rest 10 minutes on the plate after cooking for more flavour."

"I want to eat a hot steak, not a cold one."

-SoloPogo

Bones to pick

"I hate "inedible" things in my food. Like (fish)bones (chicken wings, spare ribs etc.), seafood shells, skewers, etc. If it's not supposed to go in my mouth, then it shouldn't be on my plate. If I pay you to prepare food for me, then don't make me "finish the job".

Bacon

"Bacon-wrapped things suck 9/10. It's hard to cook the bacon and the meat properly, and the vast majority of the time you just get a lame soggy piece of bacon wrapped around your meat."

"Velveeta shells and cheese are amazingly epicly superior when reheated in the microwave."

I love food. But some food is just a NO!

Some people are far more conscious of their health than others.

Be it out of obligation or self-interest, many people make a point of avoiding certain foods and products, and partaking in extreme diets and exercise plans.

Which doesn't mean they avoid unhealthy habits or products altogether.

Indeed, all of us are probably unaware that we all likely partake in eating food, using products, or even performing what might seem like everyday activities which could be harmful to our health.

Be it by happenstance or obligation.

I'm always stunned by bad parenting.

And I see it far too often.

People need a license to drive.

A license to fish.

But having kids?

Let anybody do it. Sure.

So many kids deserve better.

The new generation.

CW: Suicide.

Finding a dead body is one of my worst fears.

The only one I've ever found was my grandma's.

She was dying of cancer so it wasn't horrific.

Blood makes me faint, so any horrific scenes will not go well for me.
