When everyone around you is losing their minds appreciating a food that you think is God-awful, it can be hard to speak up.


Thankfully, the cover of anonymity on the internet provides a place to share those unpopular, repulsed opinions. There are some commonly loved foods that, for whatever reason, just do not agree with all the tongues out there.

Reddit, of course, is where they gathered to talk shop.

Redditor Nervous_Bakedwafer asked:

"What popular food do you find disgusting?"

For many people, the degree to which a food has strayed from real, naturally occurring ingredients was the beginning and the end of the story.

Too Fun Food

"This is gonna sound weird but I don't like things that are bright artificial colors. Like something could taste good but if it's neon blue or neon pink or something I'm a little repulsed."

-- CaptainNipplesMcRib

A Household Name

"Twinkies. They're extremely sweet and they taste chemical-y. Makes me wanna throw up." -- pomskiesxx

"They were way better when I was a kid. After Hostess shut down and was brought back by another company, the weren't good any more." -- Coconut-bird

All Jammed In There

"SPAM. I saw a documentary about it and how it's actually more popular than I thought it was. Just looking at the packaging makes me gag. Sry guys."

-- alpacameat

​Imitating 

"Pumpkin spice anything I just find it disgusting yet I like pumpkin pie" -- BearWithABowtie12

"That might be because pumpkin spice doesn't contain any pumpkin. It's about the spices that go into a pumpkin pie--not the pumpkin. It's not supposed to taste like pumpkin--not that that makes it any better." -- supercheetah

But the naturally occurring foods managed to gross plenty of people out too.

The State is Disappointed

"Avocado, I'm a bad Californian but honestly they just taste like bland mush and I don't like the texture." -- RGBmoth

"A friend once convinced me to try a bit of avocado. She immediately apologized because apparently while eating it I 'looked like I wanted to kill myself.' I really was hoping that I would like avocados though." -- deleted

Vivid Images

"Oysters" -- oliverklozoph

Truly Unique

"Mushrooms. Just the concept grosses me out." -- Moorebetter

"Mushrooms, the penis of the forest." -- office_ghost

"Yes! I'm fine with the taste of mushrooms and they look delicious in so many dishes I've seen, but I can't get over the fact that I'm eating a fungus. Ruins the entire experience" -- AlexGarrido

And what is it about cheese that seems to rub people the wrong way so often?

"Cheese"

"Velveeta 'cheese.' Flavor, texture, appearance, smell...there's nothing good to be found in that yellow, room-temperature box."

-- OhNoCosmo

A Passioned Plea

"The mere sight of American cheese is enough to make my skin crawl. My American brothers and sisters - please see the light and stop eating that stuff."

-- vtjfvkc1

Again, "Cheese"

"Cheese Whiz." -- _GarageDinner_

"I just don't understand why someone in their right mind would put crappy 'cheese"'in a can" -- BearWithABowtie12

"Stay out of Philadelphia." -- C0VID

So to all of you harboring secret, hateful feelings toward the foods your friends won't stop blathering on about, shine on!

Sex is fun. Sex is healthy. Sex should be enjoyed and always consensual. But often, sex can be dangerous, especially when you're trying out new things, like a new location.

Who hasn't thought about upping the adrenaline ante when it comes to sexytime? We've all been there. But some ideas really should just stay ideas.

Why break a hip or an arm just to make things a little more saucy? Just try a different room in the house, or the backyard, but bring bug spray.

And some areas in public are safety hazards for a reason.

Redditor u/playfulinvestment01 wanted to know about all the places we need to avoid when it's sexytime, by asking:

What is the worst place you had sex?

Animated movies meant for children have been known to sneak in a few dirty jokes here and there. After all, the parents have to sit through the movies with the kids too.

These "Easter eggs" can be found in virtually every movie meant for kids. It may go over our heads when we watch at age 10, but years later when we re-watch to enjoy a bit of nostalgia, we realize just how raunchy the creators were.

It's not just old movies from the 90s or early 2000s, some movies as recent as Frozen 2 have some moments of adult centered levity.
