If you have ever had a dish that made you feel bad or just left a bad taste in your mouth, then you know how strong hatred for a dish can be. While people’s taste buds can differ, there are some dishes that can just seriously get out of here! A user on a popular forum started a lively debate when they asked: “What food should be banished from the earth?” Here are the top responses.
One foodie shared: “A train in Japan got evacuated a few years back because they thought there was a chemical terrorist attack. Nope, just someone eating lunch.
I'll eat anything once but when I was in Taiwan I repeatedly flaked out about 2 meters from the stuff."
One foodie chimed in: "That stuff smells so vile. A few years ago the night market had a stall selling it. You could smell that rotting sewage smell for BLOCKS. I kept waiting for my nose to adjust, and it never did. Ugh!"
Reheated Fish at Work
One user commented: "A guy my boyfriend works with *brought fish he caught himself in the river, cut it up raw in the lunch room and ate it as "sushi. Guess who was out with food poisoning the rest of the week?"
Another foodie agreed sharing: “Ever microwave popcorn and burn it? The smell LINGERS. Reheating fish is similarly LINGERING and terrible.”
One passionate foodie shared: “The worst thing is that you can't tell they are sweet by looking. I love dill pickles and spicy pickles, but so many times I've gotten a pickle in a restaurant setting and faced the horror, revulsion, and disappointment of a sweet pickle when I take the first bite.”
Burger in a Can
One foodie shared: “Burger in a can. Just Why?”
Others agreed sharing other surprisingly terrible things in cans ranging from pizza to whole chickens.
Foods with a Gold Leaf on Them
One foodie shared: “In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and Super Paper Mario, there is a rare healing item and recipe ingredient called a Gold Leaf. It's a literal leaf that's just yellow.
Imagine my disappointment later in life when I found out that gold leaf was a real thing, but is nothing like that.”
Canned Straw Mushrooms
One foodie commented: “I have quite a few but canned straw mushrooms were the bane of my youth.”
Another foodie added: “Pickled mushrooms are amazing though.”
One foodie suggested: “That's the nasty thing that recommends you open a can underwater because it smells so horrible.”
Another foodie agreed sharing: “Also because its contents are under pressure and the juices are liable to splatter all over otherwise.”
Shark Fin Soup
One foodie commented: “Shark fins are tasteless. The soup tastes the exactly same without them. Fake ones or even glass noodles would do if the soup itself is good.”
Another foodie agreed explaining: “Not only are they tasteless, but full of mercury too! Not to mention having zero food value too, as they are very similar to your fingernails.
Sharks have been around longer than trees, and we've managed to wipe out up to 75% of some species. The number of sharks I see when scuba diving in Asia compared to Caribbean is just astounding, because they've almost completely been fished out in Asia. There are now boats going as far as the Galapagos islands, because there are so few left anywhere near China.
To anyone still not sold on sparing the sharks...please believe what others are saying, the imitation version is just as good (if not better) because it's the soup that makes it delicious, not the shark fin.”
One foodie commented: "As a southerner I hate okra. I don't want a slightly fuzzy tube full of snot. I don't care if it makes the gumbo silkier, I don't care about the flavor. The texture makes me feel like I'm eating an old man's nose."
