Some things just shouldn’t happen to food. Whether it’s using a weird condiment or cooking it in a weird way, some food sins really do shock and awe us. A user on a popular internet forum asked: “What's the worst "food sin" you've seen someone commit?” causing a lively debate in the comments. Here are the top responses.
Getting a Little Extra Out of a Sauce Bottle
While we are all in favor of using up every last drop of your favorite sauce. This one might be taking stretching a dollar a bit too far.
This foodie shared: “I used to house share with a guy. We agreed to split the bill for the food essentials and buy anything different we wanted ourselves.
Every time a sauce bottle got down to be being about ⅓ full he would fill it up with water and shake it before use to 'get my monies worth'. I thought it was absolutely disgusting.
We had an actual full blown row about it, which seems very silly looking back but anyone who's house shared before will know the small things tend to get amplified.”
Raw Macaroni and Vinegar
While macaroni and vinegar can be used to make pasta salad, eating them raw might not be something the average person can stomach.
This foodie shared: “My wife will take a handful of raw macaroni and throw it in her mouth, and then pour in copious amounts of vinegar and chew it all together. Still grosses me out watching her..”
Eating the Powder From a Bag of Chips
While the powder on Dorito’s is delicious, just eating the powder THEN putting it back is a whole different story.
This foodie shared: “Not something I've seen, but my parents said when I was 4 I'd sneak into the Doritos, lick all the powder off some chips, and put them back in the bag.
When my parents would try to eat some, they'd suddenly be horrified by grabbing a cold and soggy chip.”
Wiping Down KFC Chicken
One foodie shared: “I didn’t personally see it happen, but a guy my fiancé used to work with would wipe his chicken pieces with the lemon scented hand wipes from KFC thinking that they were meant for seasoning.”
Another foodie jokingly commented: “He discovered the twelfth herb/spice.”
Coffee Mousse on Garlic Bread
While each can be good on their own, together is an interesting combination.
This foodie shared: “Was on a flight last week - the lady sat next to me took the coffee mousse we had for dessert and spread it all over our side of garlic bread...and proceeded to eat it in one.
I don't think I was able to hide my look of sheer horror before she noticed it…”
A New Kind of Sushi
While sushi can get a bit creative, this is a whole different kind of creativity.
This foodie shared: “My coworker likes to eat extremely strange food combinations. The worst I have seen was a slice of pepperoni pizza covered in slices of a California roll. He then covered the whole thing with a thick coating of nutritional yeast.”
