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?

"As someone from the UK I don't get why so many people here love mushy peas."

"I find peas relatively tasteless and gross as they are, mushing them just makes the texture gross as well."- MHC1905

More healthy, less tasty...

"Zucchini pasta."-- dannyboyhou

"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

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.

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.

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.
