One of the best things about food is all the different textures. It’s part of what makes some dishes taste amazing while others could work. A Redditor asked “What food has the worst texture?” and sparked a debate about some foods that you just can’t get past the texture.
Here are the top responses.
One user commented: “My mom always bought red delicious when I was growing up, so I thought I didn’t really like apples. Then as an adult, someone handed me a honeycrisp and it was like eating an entirely different fruit.”
Another foodie agreed stating: “Right! Like eating wet sand.”
The Tendon in Chicken Breast
One foodie shared: “Pretty much all chicken breast these days. Woody, no matter how much you cook them, they have the consistency of raw chicken.”
Another agreed sharing: “Woody? Is that when it has a weird crunch to it? Like your teeth sort of pop through it, instead of chewing through it the way stranded flesh usually is?” Try this recipe instead - Classic Chicken Stroganoff.
While a few said this was their favorite way to enjoy fruit, many were disgusted by the very idea of it! One foodie commented: “Most overripe fruits. They are sickly sweet because the sugars are overdeveloped by that point. To add to that, the texture is gritty and wet. It falls apart like wet sand.”
One foodie shared: “Yep. This takes the cake. I know that a lot of people here have probably never encountered it, and if ever they do, I doubt they'd have the balls to eat it.”
Another agreed sharing: “Yeah, it tastes like chicken soup with...crunchy. I'm glad I tried it, but once was enough hahah.”
Very Fatty Meat
Many foodies agreed stating: “Yes! Especially if you thought maybe it will be ok “this time” and then you’re let down, and gagging.”
However one foodie disagreed: “Oh man that’s my favorite. A good chunk of fat on a tender steak, or some fatty brisket…mmm.” Try this recipe instead - 4-Ingredient Roasted Pork Tenderloin.
One foodie shared: “Coconut. I loooove the flavor of coconut but I cannot stand the texture and it makes me sad.”
Many others agreed stating: “Like chewing on plastic Easter grass.” and “Sticks to the teeth like the fluoride from the dentist.” Try this recipe instead - Coconut Raspberry Panna Cotta.
Jello might not make many people’s list, but one foodie in particular as adamant that he hated it and many agreed. One foodie commented: “jello a lot of people will probably disagree but that dlimy texture in my mouth made me throw up the first time and the taste wasnt even bad.”
Many foodies agreed that they hated organ meats. One foodie shared: “I would say all organ meats, but liver is the granddaddy of them all.”
One Redditor shared: “I can't stand asparagus. It feels like I'm chewing in 4d. No thank you.”
While many didn’t necessarily know how to describe why they didn’t like it, they loved the creative visual. Try this recipe - Mediterranean Roasted Asparagus.
