There is nothing more alienating than saying “No" to splitting some avocado toast.
Instagram and Pinterest have ramped up the strength and frequency of food obsessions. There are certain condiments, specific veggies prepared a certain way, and jars of viscous liquids of all sorts that go great on sandwiches.
They all grow so popular and talked about that having something from a food truck can make someone feel a strange, undeserving pride. It's as if one of the nutrients listed should be cultural capital.
Some, however, are left on the sidelines. They simply cannot rouse the taste buds to like the “in" thing. So they access pride through an equal and opposite energy: they trash the food into oblivion on a Reddit forum
