We all have food that we just can’t stomach. Whether it’s something you can’t stand even the sight of or something that, in all your years of trying and retrying, you just can’t like, we all have that one dish that makes our list. A user on a popular forum asked the community of foodies: “Of what food or drink can you almost not comprehend what other people actually like?” Which sparked a lively debate in the comments about what foods people just couldn’t understand why others liked.
Here are the top responses.
Canned Pear Halves
One foodie in the culinary world shares: “As a chef, I like to think I have an open mind about most food.
That being said, my boss likes to eat canned pear halves with a big dollop of mayo on top and then topped with cold shredded cheddar cheese....
Gotta draw the line somewhere.”
According to other users in the comments, this is a popular dish to enjoy in the South called “pear salad.” Many Southerners disagreed, saying: “I live in the south and have NEVER heard of this monstrosity.”
One passionate foodie shared: “Malort. My husband loves that stuff and I think it smells like death.”
Another agreed with them, sharing: “It tastes like how Band-aids smell.”
Even more agreed sharing: “My favorite thing about Malort is the vivid descriptions people come up with for the taste. Nobody ever just says it tastes bad, they always come up with something like "it tastes like when your dad says 'get the belt'" or something like that. It's hilarious.”
One foodie shared: “Drinking buttermilk like it was any other drink.”
Another foodie agreed, sharing: “I used to work in an old people retirement home. The folks there would drink big ol' glasses of buttermilk with every meal. I almost lost it on more than one occasion.”
Banana on Pizza
If you felt heated about pineapple on pizza, then here is what one foodie shared: “Banana on pizza, ppl eat it here in Sweden, it's weird.”
One disturbed foodie shared: “It's fermented beans. Absolutely vile.”
Another foodie chimed in: "Yes thank you Taiwanese roommate's tiny grandma for that experience.
I've have to spit food out before but I've never had to spend 20 minutes wiping my tongue with a towel. Natto tastes like a hoarder house looks."
One foodie shared: “Icelandic traditional food. Shark that was fermented by burying it in the ground, and then urinating on it before letting it rot for months.”
Another foodie explained: “The shark that it's made from is poisonous if eaten fresh, so this is the only way to make it edible. If you live on a volcanic island with no other sources of food I guess you do what you have to.”
One outraged foodie shared: “Circus Peanuts. The candy variety. Those pink/orange, faux marshmallow, peanut shaped, fake banana flavored little pieces of crap. I don't know anyone who eats them with any regularity but there they are every time I'm in the candy section pissing me off. Get out of here, you afront to everything that makes food great.”
