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

Who knew fish eggs would be so popular?

"Caviar."

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

"Lobster."

"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.

Adults Explain Which Things Every Teenager Should Know

We often look back on our teenage years with mixed emotions.

Our final years where we could enjoy our youth, and live largely without responsibility and just enjoy being a child and all that came with it.

Of course, we might also look back on things we did as teenagers which we are less than proud of today.

Or things we wish someone had told us, so that we may have avoided falling into those unhappy situations.

We all pretended to be sick at least once when we were children to get out of going to school to avoid a test, game, or assembly we'd been dreading.

Some people still might not have given up the habit of feigning illness, as a means of avoiding work or other occasions that they are less than eager to attend.

Sometimes, simply telling people that you're "sick" is all the information you need to share to get out of it.

Whether or not more concrete proof is needed, others might go a step further in faking their ailment, be it a cold or fever, and often pull off fairly convincing performances.

Sometimes even fooling a doctor.

Every kid has their own strengths and talents. However, in school, some of us are singled out as being ‘gifted.’

This could mean a variety of things, from getting exceptionally good grades to having a unique way of thinking or understanding topics that aren’t seen in other students.

Often, when a student is labeled “gifted,” it is assumed they will be successful in later life.

However, Reddit has proven that this is not always the case.

Sometimes gifted students are successful but to a normal degree. They have the same careers and achievements as students who weren't labeled gifted. Other times, these students are not successful at all and being labeled “gifted” ended up damaging.

Non-disclosure agreements, or NDAs, are legally binding contracts that establish confidential relationships.

For most people, it’s not a big deal. NDAs are often signed at the start or end of an employment opportunity or during a sale of a product or technology you own. They mainly protect creative, business, or intellectual properties.

However, another function of NDAs is to guarantee silence on more high profile or nefarious events. For example, Stormy Daniels was asked to sign an NDA so that events that transpired between her and former president, Donald Trump, would be kept a secret. In most cases like these, the person who signs the NDA also gets a sum of money for their cooperation.

In these cases, the reason for the NDA is usually wild.
