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!

People Break Down Which Things Were Common In The 1990s But Are Rare Today

Oh the 90's. What a decade.

Who knew we were in the time of revolution?!

So much happened, yet so much stayed the same.

And not decades later, so much has changed.

Who doesn't love to look back upon a decade and discuss the things that were a common part of life and are now basically obsolete?

You never know in real time.

People Divulge The First Thing They Think Of When They Hear The Word 'Texas'
Pete Alexopoulos on Unsplash

Texas is HUGE!

Literally, it's massive. That might be why the tagline is about everything being big. Oh the metaphors of life.

Next to size is heat. Lord is it hot there.

Those are just a few of the regular Texas deets that often come to mind.

What else do others think of?

Insects play a vital role in Earth's ecosystem.

Without insects, some plants would die and some animals would starve creating a domino effect of global famine.

That being said, June Bugs can crawl back into the pits of Hell from whence they came.

I know I'm not alone in that opinion.

People Share The Things They Find Completely Overrated

For the life of me, I can't understand how anyone could still watch The Walking Dead. I just checked and the damn thing has had 11 seasons. 11 seasons!

Can you imagine?

People enjoy watching characters follow a set of train tracks for an entire season I guess. (For context, I made it to the beginning of the seventh season before I threw in the towel, and it was really testing my patience well before then.)

But there's so much more out there that's equally overrated. Television is the least of our problems.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor PieinHorse asked the online community,

"What is very overrated?"
