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...

Green Issues

"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."

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

When visiting any foreign country, one should always be familiar with the laws and customs of the land.

After all, what might be generally accepted on your home turf, might be frowned upon, if not illegal, elsewhere.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.

Who doesn't love a good joke?

And one needn't be a professional comedian to always have a joke in their back pocket to make people laugh.

Particularly as there are certain types of jokes which are almost always guaranteed to elicit at least a tiny chuckle.

They could be knock-knock jokes, "little johnny" jokes, and of course the "yo mamma" jokes.

Though always teetering on the boundaries of good taste, the possibilities of jokingly insulting the mother of a friend, or foe, are endless, and more often than not, hilarious.

People Break Down Which TV Shows No One Else Seems To Remember

As a kid, I remember being obsessed (like obsessed) with David the Gnome and his fox Swift. I was tuned in daily to watch the adventures, get all misty eyed for the hurt animals the gnomes saved, and sobbed in abject wonder when the gnomes finally lived all 400 years of their gnome life and transitioned into the trees that make up the woods they live in.

The trees are their ancestors, y'all! The treeees! They protect the trees because they're family. Trees grow intertwined because they were so in love when they were gnomes.

Fam! This show was everything ... except memorable for other people because I was in my 30s talking to someone from another country before I met the first person who remembered this show.

Which, honestly, is kind of insulting to gnomes and trees.
