Food can bring up memories of happy childhoods and important dates to live on in your memory for forever. On the flip side, there's also foods that can take us back to the worst times in our lives making us feel gross, icky, and all around sticky if we even so much as smell it, as evidenced by the stories below.


Reddit user, u/Rusty-Unicorn, wanted to know what your lips will never touch again when they asked:

What's something you'll never eat again and why?

"It was actually vanilla flavoured Greek yogurt."

Once made a tuna wrap and added what I thought was tzatziki.

It was actually vanilla flavoured Greek yogurt. I literally felt a cognitive disconnect originating on my tongue.

"...there was a layer of mold hidden in it."

Those cups of chocolate pudding.

When I was in elementary school, had one, ate half way through it and then there was a layer of mold hidden in it.

Nope! Can't do it anymorw

"Buffalo Wing Flavored Oreos."

Buffalo Wing flavored oreos.

Why?

Well they can only be found in china, and they taste like chicken mixed with cream thats been sitting around for 6 months

"I'm in my 40's now and to this day the smell makes me nauseous..."

Instant mashed potatoes and brown gravy.

When I was 15 I had cancer and went through chemo and radiation and only thing I wanted to eat was the horrible cafeteria mashed potatoes. I'm in my 40's now and to this day the smell makes me nauseous, not just normal nauseous but the chemo nausea..I f-cking hate mashed potatoes

"I swore when I moved out I would never touch another one."

Pork chops.

My father wanted them literally every other day when I was a child. I swore when I moved out I would never touch another one.

And I haven't 10 years later.

"I'm never doing that again."

Molten chocolate cake from Chili's.

When I was young, around 8 or 9, for some reason my parents let me get one for myself when I asked. I managed to eat the whole darn thing and after I was done I leaned back in my seat and proclaimed, "I'm never doing that again." Not only has that become a regular quote with my family, but I have held true to that promise and have never done that again, nor will I ever.

EDIT: I just want to clarify, the molten cake was delicious, it was just the size of it that was too much for one young boy to eat on his own without getting....uncomfortable.

"I eat it, and begin to gag from how rancid it tasted."

African Horned Melon.

When I was young, my mother went to the store and I said I wanted a cucumber. She found this weird, green bumpy thing, so she decided to get it.

Come lunch, I have it, and I see this weird, slimy inside. I can already tell that it is not a cucumber, and I wouldn't like it.

I eat it, and begin to gag from how rancid it tasted. I revolted back in disgust. There were still around 10 more mouthfuls of this thing.

I didn't want to tell my mother, because she bought it and I didn't want to waste it or seem like a brat, so I kept eating it until my mother found me in the living room gagging on each spoonful (yes, spoonful).

I don't remember where the hell we shopped, or how it was there in the first place. I just remember it was that.

Edit: it wasn't spoiled; it was very green, so it was likely underripe.

Low And Getting Lower

McDonald's McRib

I ordered one a few years ago because I didn't have alot of money and was hungry. I was normally fine with McDonald's even if I knew most of their food is just mashed together privates and loose meat, but this McRib is like the prime example I have when I think of processed meat. Christ it was awful, one bite was all it took to make me throw it away. It honestly baffles me when people say they love the McRibs, and I thought I had low standards.

But It's The Pig Jello That Makes It Delicious?

Gummy worms and stuff, like Haribo. I've heard from a teacher that they put some pig jello (or something like that) in them.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Don't Tell Tony Stark That

Shawarma.

Last time I had it, I almost puked. Its probably the place but it has scarred me for life and I can't see me bringing myself to eat it again.

A Food Scarred By A Memory

KitKats, I got sick on a vacation one time when I was around 8 or so.

A KitKat sounded so good. So me being a kid asked my mom for a KitKat. I ate it and later that night I threw up.

After that it not only ruined my appetite for KitKats but also Tortilla chips because I had eaten those also before I threw up. To this day everytime I see one I get a little sick and I fell as if I'm going to vomit.

Not Just The Flavor, But The Color?

Orange. Anything orange flavored.

Too many instances of me having the stomach flu when I was a kid and my parents trying to get me to drink the orange liquid medicine ( Motrin I think).

I would cry and cry because I had thrown it up so many times and it tasted so bad, nor did it make me feel better. Still to this day I HATE orange anything.

Always Try A Little First

Chitlins.

I grew up in the south and am a pretty adventurous eater. Went to soul food southern restaurant and decided I was going to order a plate to give it a try. I told the waitress I'd never had it before but wanted to try it. This sweet old black lady looks at me with a skeptical smile and says "honey, why don't I bring you a little to try first". Thank God she did. Tasted straight up like sh-t.

Nothing From Intestines Ever Again

French Canadian Boudin sausage.

It was bad. I've posted about it here before and the people commenting said it was probably poorly made - ie : the intestines weren't cleaned out. It was from a farm my dad's cousin owned and the whole house and sausage itself tasted like shit smells. I got beat when I didn't want to eat it so I had to. I threw up, got to taste it again. SO..... no. I don't care what anyone says. I'll eat haggis, fine, but no black pudding, blood, or boudin for me again EVER.

Being Good At One Thing Doesn't Mean You'll Be Good At All Things

Growing up we lived with my grandparents. However my grandmother cannot cook. She is a amazing Baker, but just cannot cook. Her idea of mashed potatoes is to this day, half cooked potatoes Literally just mashed. 0 milk butter or seasoning. And only half mashed too. Nasty stuff.

Now when mom makes mashed potatoes their so much better.

Maybe You're The Problem

pop-tarts,

I don't get why Americans like them they are so f-cking dry.

"It was white, milky, and soft"

Shirako.

SO took me out for a fancy meal when we lived in Japan. They served a lot of delicious small dishes, and the waitress did a good job describing each one. Except for shirako.

It was white, milky, and soft. SO and I both ate it and didn't talk about it until we left the restaurant. Finally I had to speak up. "That was a fish sperm sac, wasn't it" - "Mhmm."

...Gross.

Mall Chinese, because I pooped on the floor while I was vomiting.

People Confess What Genuinely Disgusts Them

No two people react the same way to a pungent odor, gratuitous violence in film and television, or unruly, off-putting behavior.

As some people have a fairly high tolerance for gore, aren't bothered by taste and smell, and are so patient that they simply aren't bothered by anyone.

Although, everyone has their limits.

And despite what they might say, there are very few people who don't have one thing which even the very thought of will make them gag, just a little bit.

It's rare for a day to go by where women don't, quite understandably, complain about the annoying, even misogynistic behavior of men.

Addiction to video games, poor hygiene, too much excitement over a football or basketball game, bad table manners.

The list goes on and on.

But men don't only annoy women with their behavior.

Indeed, plenty of other men get equally annoyed or revolted by certain stereotypically "male" behavior, and wish it would come to an end.

Poor People Share The Most Out Of Touch Advice They've Received From A Rich Person

Successful people who come from humble beginnings usually don't forget where they came from.

But some of those who were already born into privilege and wealth may claim to be compassionate towards people who are financially disadvantaged.

But unless they've lived the experience as someone from the lower class or have a deep understanding of what life is like on the other side, the wealthy will never understand what it's like to be poor.

People Explain Which Teen Movies Made Them Think 'The Older I Get, The More I Agree With The Adult'

There's a fairly common formula in movies geared toward a teenage audience.

A group of teenagers face one central conflict, to varying degrees of importance and severity, but manage to solve it in a surprisingly short manner of time.

The heroes of these films are usually a hodgepodge of traditional high school archetypes (star athlete, math nerd, girl whose beauty is disguised by a pair of glasses), all of whom the intended audience can completely relate to and root for.

And then we have the adult characters, who are often buffoonish stereotypes, or the outright villain, whose sole mission is to ensure the protagonist will not achieve their ultimate goal.

As teenagers, we often find ourselves ready to boo these grown-ups from the minute they appear on the screen.

But when we revisit these movies as adults, we find ourselves noticing that their behavior isn't quite as bad as we remembered.

Or, more shockingly, we actually find ourselves rooting for them!
