People Talk About What Kind of Food People Only Pretend to Like

Oh! I know my answer to this question!

Ethiopian food. It seems to be all the rage among the hipsters in the city I live in. I’ve tried it twice at two different restaurants but I’m just not feeling it. At all.

Now, to be fair, I probably should give it another shot because it’s been several years, but the memories still haunt me, so I’ve been wary of going back…

AskReddit users opened up about what foods they think people only pretend to like.

1. Local fare.

“Anything that’s classified as a “local delicacy”.

There’s usually a reason it’s remained local.

And yes, I am Scandinavian, how’d you guess?”

2. Nope.

“Some of the Jello salads out there. Green Jello with carrots (and sometimes raisins) is an abomination.

Also, whatever the hell my mom used to make with cottage cheese and orange jello.

My family had this weird notion that if you put healthy stuff in Jello that it was a side dish and not a dessert. Nope, you just ruined two foods by making unnatural combinations with them.

Mom never did come across a Jello recipe that she thought was a bad idea though.”

3. Never heard of it.


We eat this on Christmas on my dad’s side of the family and everyone hates how it tastes, but it’s an important part of our family history. His ancestors had to eat it to survive famine, and it’s a way of keeping the memory of their sacrifices alive and showing respect to them.

Having it with a table full of absolutely delightful cooking also serves as a reminder of what we do have, and makes us more aware of what we should be thankful for. We do drown it in mustard and cream sauce though.”

4. Eat up!


Seriously, it’s intestines sorta cleaned and cooked.

That’s it.”

5. Not normal.

“Gefilte fish.

I refuse to believe anyone under the age of 80 enjoys this food.

It’s not normal.”

6. Thoughts?

“I have the soap gene for cilantro, so I had my fiancé try a bit (raw) to tell me what it tasted like.

Does it really just taste like grass for people without my curse?”

7. Gross.

“Limburger cheese.

It smells and tastes like sweaty feet.”

8. What?!?!

“Tonic water.

It’s like angry poison water.

Shy would anyone drink that on purpose?”

9. Hmmmm…


I spend quite some time in the Philippines and I never saw one person actively ENJOYING the food but eating it because cheap and easy to get.”

10. Come on, now…

“Grape Nuts.

If I wanted that texture and no flavor I would go outside and chew on gravel.”

11. Not a fan.


I’d like some salt paste please for $100 a scoop…”

12. Marmite.


There’s literally a series of adverts made by the company where the whole premise is ‘This sh*t tastes so terrible that even the slightest scraping will make you vomit.’

They’re not even pretending anymore. It’s not a food as much as it is an inter-office dare to see just what nasty bullsh*t they can convince people to eat.”

13. Keep it away from me.

“Anything rose or floral flavored.

I wanted a cake, not a cake that smells like flowers and taste like soap.”

14. I get it…but…

“Everybody gonna say oysters and even though I love oysters I get what they mean. They’re the texture of a thick loogey. They taste like saltwater and algae that’s marinated an old piece of discarded bubble gum.

But I love them! I love them so much! I love them with horseradish, lemon juice and hot sauces. They’re mostly just a vector for those flavors I guess. But I’d never really argue with a person who hates on them.

They’re objectively correct. I’ve just eaten so many things at this point, whacked off my taste buds so much, made them numb with fire and acid, that I’ve evolved to some twisted realm of flavor where culinary cenobites make me genuinely enjoy some clearly disgusting meal.”

15. Doesn’t sound great.

“The food my nephew makes.

It’s too salty and its always made out of Play-Doh.”

Okay, you know the drill…

Now we want to hear from you!

What Food Do Folks Pretend to Like? 16 People Responded.

Are foods out there that people only pretend to like?

Maybe it’s because it’s all the rage at the moment, maybe it’s extremely hip, or maybe people are just too afraid to speak out against it.

Whatever the case, it does seem like there’s a lot of this going around…or at least people think there is.

Let’s see what AskReddit users had to say about this.

1. Code for “not good.”

“Everything I eat at Rosh Hashanah.

Chopped liver, gefilte fish, kugel (noodles with cottage cheese and raisins).

Everything is described as an “acquired taste,” which is code for “not good.””

2. No thank you.

“Liver and pig’s feet.

I eat all types of food.

I eat sushi, caviar, oysters, beef heart, tongue, etc but those two foods in particular have a certain taste that just broadcasts what they are, and it isn’t positive.”

3. I’m being poisoned!

“Those bitter gross leafs in some salads.

Those are weeds, not food.

Healthy doesn’t mean it needs to taste like poison.”

4. Get that outta here!


You all pretend to like them because they’re cute but in reality they ruin whatever they are on.

Leave my cupcake alone with your glittery crunchy nasty bullsh*t.”

5. Like shoe leather.

“Well done steak.

It destroys the flavor and texture,.

You may as well just save yourself some money and buy chicken instead.”

6. Uh uh…

“Miracle Whip

To quote Kyle Kinane, “mayonnaise doesn’t go bad, it just becomes Miracle Whip. That extra tang in there, you know what that is? Patience.””

7. Not a fan.

“Fruit cake.

Do people actually eat that?

I feel like it work better as a doorstop.

8. Take that back!


It tastes like a syrup version of black licorice.

Ewww, god no.”

9. Not feeling it.

“Coconut Water.

If I wanted to drink taint sweat I would just collect my own.

10. Not for me!


Sure, I’d love a sandpaper salad!”

11. That’s one way to put it.

“Cottage cheese.

It’s the Devil’s yeast infection.”

12. I guess it is kind of gross…


It’s literally bitter, chewy, fibrous water.


13. Is it all a conspiracy?

“Candy Corn?

There is a conspiracy that in the 1880’s “Big Sugar” had found a way to sell their low grade sugar by mixing it with edible wax and selling it to children called “candy corn”

if someone “Likes” candy corn they are alien who is trying to “fit in” with humanity, cause people weren’t suppose to like candy other than as fake gag food.”

14. Overpriced.

“Really fancy wines.

I feel like once yet hit anything over USD 40 per bottle, all wines are just about the same levels of good.”

15. Rusty nails.

“Uni(sea urchin).

Tastes like rusty nails and explodes said rusty nail juice in your mouth like a boba.

Chefs talk about how they love it and I think people say they like it to get foodie cred.”

16. Very bitter.

“IPA beer.

Especially when the brewery prides itself on how hoppy it is.

That just means it’ll be so bitter you’ll barely be able to get it past your lips.”

Now we want to hear from all of you out there!

We can’t wait to hear from you!

Turkey Cinnamon Rolls That Will Make Your Thanksgiving Morning Totally Extra

Some folks don’t plan to have breakfast on Thanksgiving morning. They like to save up and starve themselves, leaving plenty of room for the main course of turkey and dressing and potatoes – not to mention the dessert course of pumpkin pie – that they know is coming soon.

In our house, we go easy, with a pan (or two) of ooey, gooey cinnamon rolls first thing in the morning. They go great with coffee, you can eat as many as you want, since calories obviously don’t count on Thanksgiving, and you don’t even have to make them from scratch.

Image Credit: Pillsbury

Protip: The Rhodes brand frozen rolls are as good as anything you’re going to make yourself.

If you want to steal our idea, go for it – and if you want to go extra hard Thanksgiving morning, too, you’ve gotta tackle these adorable and delicious-looking turkey cinnamon rolls.

Image Credit: Pillsbury

All you need are cinnamon rolls, some bacon, a few piece of candy corn, some candies for the eyes, and maybe some pretzels to make these festive little gobblers come to life.

Image Credit: Pillsbury

You stick the bacon like the fans of a tail, put the candy eyes and candy corn nose on the front, and use the pretzel sticks for feet.

Image Credit: Pillsbury

It hardly takes longer than 20 minutes, and if your kids are up early (I know they are) you can definitely rope them into helping.

The promise of a warm cinnamon roll with bacon should be bribe enough to get some help from anyone in the house, if you ask me!

Get a Pumpkin and Creme Pie From McDonalds – While They Last

Let’s talk about pumpkin and pumpkin spice for a second, okay? I’m not the biggest fan of the (in)famous and largely beloved Starbucks‘ Pumpkin Spice Latte, but they do make a killer pumpkin scone.

I don’t care for pumpkin pie, but have a pumpkin bar recipe that’s out of this world.

Maybe you love autumn but you don’t love pumpkin at all, to which I say, to each their own – but then this post probably isn’t for you.

For those of us who enjoy some autumnal-flavored desserts that include some kind of pumpkin pie spice, McDonald’s is once again throwing their hat in the ring with their Pumpkin and Creme Pie.

I mean, it’s no McRib, but neither of them are like actual food, so let’s not pretend anyone is better than anyone else around here, eh?

The Pumpkin and Creme pies at McD’s are much like their hot apple pies – they’re doughy pockets with buttery, flaky outer crust that hold, in this case, some stuff that has the flavor and consistency of a pumpkin pie slathered in whipped cream.

Like the McRib and many other menu items people really like, this pie won’t be around for long. It will probably hang out until around Thanksgiving, before disappearing in favor of something more Christmas-y.

I have no idea what that might be, but i would love to see a hot chocolate inspired pie, wouldn’t you?

Enjoy, my pumpkins! Autumn is here, but before you know it, the dreary winter chill will descend, so don’t miss out!

6 Things Subway Employees Love…and 10 Things They Definitely Don’t

There’s no denying that if you’re traveling and want an alternative to burgers and fries, you’ve probably found yourself standing in line at a Subway.

And even though an Irish court recently decided their bread is more sugar than, well, bread, it turns out people still find plenty to love.

6. Clean up after yourselves, people!

We’re all adults here. Supposedly.

When people leave not only their rubbish but rubbish from other places brought in from subway

5. Don’t judge a book by its cover.

Sometimes even teenagers aren’t as bad as they seem.

not all customers are bad from subway

4. People are people.

No matter where they work.

3. A little love goes a long way.

Such a simple.

A customer just left this on a table for me. I was having a really crappy day, and this made my day. from subway

2. Don’t leave anything out.

It’s like being a part of a secret club.

I always cherish the customers that tell me everything in the order you do it in. from subway

1. Tipping is always appreciated.

I mean, it’s money! Come on!

Best tip day I’ve ever had !!!! Usually only get $1-$3 a day from subway

Well, we started on a high note, so let’s head down a more negative path together now…because I mean, it’s Subway.

We had no trouble tracking down 10 things customers do that employees consider less than kosher.

10. Just get it all out of the way up front.

Like everything else in life.

Eat fresh with this fresh meme from subway

9. Like ordering from the Soup Nazi.

These people come prepared.

Ha…ha…ha…. from subway

8. She wants to be the exception.

Her name is Karen.

7. It’s called math, folks.

Anyone else feel this? from subway

6. Because they want you to have to get out everything you’ve put away.

It is the way of the fast food customer.

Why 😭 from subway

5. Because sometimes you need a sandwich at 10am?

I guess maybe you want to take it on a hike or something.

Every time I do a weekend open from subway

4. The one thing they don’t premake.

You know you want the sugar bread anyway.

Happened today during our lunch rush. from subway

3. They don’t know about the spreadable avocado, I guess.

The struggle is real from subway

2. I propose banning all actual phone calls.

Unless there’s an emergency I guess.

WHY from subway

1. How can people make a sandwich so complicated?

It’s bread and meat and cheese, folks!

Devils from subway

It’s hard to argue with most of these, don’t you think?

Tell us in the comments what you would add to both lists!

Please and thank you!

This Egg Trick Video Shows You How to Make an Egg Envelope

I know there are probably more than a few things that show up online that claim to “blow your mind,” but listen – you have to at least give this TikTok a try and let me know what you think.

It showcases the latest in TikTok cooking trends – a delicate egg envelope.

See? You didn’t even know that was a thing, and now you’re thinking you’re totally curious just what in the heck I’m talkin about, right?

Image Credit: TikTok

An egg envelope is just a cute little way to have your over-easy egg tucked into the egg whites – a perfect bite that you don’t need silicone cups and an air fryer to achieve.

Image Credit: TikTok

Here’s the video. If you ask me, it’s cute and it looks like it would enable you to get a really nice yolk-to-white ratio.

I’m not sure how you would do it with toast though…maybe put the envelope on top and just enjoy the whole bite?


#delicacies #eggchallenge #food

♬ What If (I Told You I Like You) – Johnny Orlando & Mackenzie Ziegler

I’m guessing that, like most things on the internet that involve baking or cooking and a video that looks like it would be simple, this is anything but – just ask anyone who has tried to flip the perfect over-easy egg, right?

Image Credit: TikTok

Still, it seems like a fun little trick to try. Something that might impress the company the next time their in town (maybe even your mother-in-law!).

If you give this one a shot, let us know how it turns out. I want to see pictures in the comments or it didn’t happen!

An Irish Court Ruled That Subway Doesn’t Serve Actual Bread

There can be no doubt that Americans eat a lot of things – and on a regular basis – that are essentially banned in other countries. Chains like McDonalds even have to adhere to higher food standards abroad.

Well… the time has come for Subway too. They’re going to have to shape up their bread or start calling it something else in Ireland, because the courts there have ruled that whatever is on the outside of their meats and cheeses, it’s not bread.


Image Credit: Pixabay

Here’s why…

For purposes of tax laws in Ireland, Subway cannot classify their bread as such because of its high sugar content.  Instead, it gets a label of “confectionary or fancy baked good.”

The case that led up to the ruling centered around whether or not Subway’s bread counts as a “staple food,” which would exempt it from the Value Added Tax and save Subway billions of dollars.

Sadly (for them, not Ireland), the amount of sugar in the bread – around a shocking 10% of the weight of the flour – far exceed the standard of 2% stated in the law.

Image Credit: Wikipedia

If you, like me, don’t understand numbers, that means that Subway’s bread contains around 5x more sugar than Ireland allows for something to be considered bread and not cake.

The court ruled that “the argument depends on the acceptance of the prior contention that the Subway heated sandwich contains ‘bread’ as defined, and therefore can be said to be food for the purposes of the Second Schedule rather than confectionary. Since that argument has been rejected, this subsidiary argument must fail.”


Image Credit: Ian Poelett

Well, there you have it. The next time you grab a Subway, just know you’re basically eating a cake sandwich.

Which is perfect if you enjoy a little salty with your sweet!

What do you think? Was this court a bit too salty itself?

Let us know in the comments!
