We all have our likes and dislikes when it comes to food.

While some people might not be able to stop eating certain foods, the very thought of that same food is enough to make others gag.

Then there are the foods which are universally considered to be delicious delicacies, the foods so revered that it is assumed that everyone must find them delicious.

Only, not everyone does.

Redditor jamboamericano was curious to hear which foods the Reddit community couldn't quite grasp the appeal of, leading them to ask:

"What a food in your opinion that quite simply sucks and you don’t understand the hype behind it?"


How do you make a bland food even more bland?

"Caviar."

Butter makes everything taste better... or does it?

"I uh, I don't get it.'

"It always tastes a bit flavorless and just alright to me."

"Then I see people dip it in butter and yea thats fine and all and it tastes great, but then I get the feeling I'm just tasting the butter and what the f*ck is the point of this $30 dish exactly?"- Sonder332

"Cheese" Louise!

"Cheese."

"Specifically Cheddar and other hard/crumbly cheeses."

"I can't understand why people seem to think cheese is some sort of ambrosia that they need to add copious amounts of to their food or force feed it to their kids."

"Sharper cheeses tend to overpower the foods they're added to and anything weaker ends up being more so for texture than taste."

"Worst cheese though is that pre-shredded fine stuff that looks like cheese dust and tastes absolutely foul yet I've seen adults pouring entire cups of it to give to their kids."- Waxburg

Can you even call it a vegetable?

Some might accuse those who dislike the above-mentioned foods of not having a distinguished palette.

But maybe their palette's are so distinguished, that they know when they're tasting a fraud?

Either way, to each their own.

People Explain Which Things They Still Prefer To Do The Old-Fashioned Way

Has science gotten to a point where we can make mashed potatoes by just adding water to flakes, producing a smooth and consistent texture?

Yes.

Am I still going to take the extra time to wash, peel, chop, boil, and mash my own potatoes, getting zero textural consistency but maximum deliciousness?

Also yes.

Because sometimes the "old way" is just better, and I'm very serious about my potatoes.
