The Top Ten
1 When the top of the Oreo won't come off

And when it does, some of the black remains stuck to the cream.

2 When the ice cream is too hard

I don't like it when i try to scoop some ice cream into a bowl and it's hard to do so because the ice cream is hard!

Yess I hate this, it's so annoying because you are trying to shovel some in your bowl but it's like the ice age in there!

Am I the only one who likes hard ice cream? It tastes better.

3 When meat is only cooked on the outside

I eat medium-rare, medium, and medium-well sometimes. I prefer my meat well-done, though.

4 When the banana is stringy

Yeah, if I could be healthy without my banana dangling, that'd be great.

5 When there's too much grease

Every time I eat fried food I have to roll it up in a paper towel and soak up all the excess grease/oil. It's disgusting!

There are times where even though I know for a fact that I washed my hands after eating, they'll still feel greasy.

My hands get greasy after that!

6 When it contains a hidden ingredient which you can't stomach
7 When the sticker won't come off the fruit

I agree with this. I don't want to eat a sticker.

8 When the chocolate melts too quick

That's the worst! When it melts onto my fingers, I either get a napkin or lick the chocolate off. But then I have to use the chocolate wrapper to eat it or else my fingers will get dirty again.

Yes this sucks but you know what's worse? When you melt chocolate for decorating something and it cools to quickly and you have to keep heating it!

Especially if your in a car and there's no napkins.

9 When it spreads all over your face
10 When you either have too many dips or chips
The Contenders
11 When a wing or leg is 80% bone

I'm also on your side because I ordered chicken wings and got chicken bones. Boneless wings are tough to find also.

Whenever I order food, I'd might as well walk up to the front counter and ask for a heap of left over bones.

This should be in the top ten. I ordered buffalo WINGS, not bufallo bones!

12 When apple slices start going brown

Sprinkle Lemon juice on it.

13 When you pour a bowl of cereal only to find there's no milk
14 When people talk about disgusting stuff during mealtime

My family is Asian. This will occasionally happen

(At a random family party)
Random relative: Hey guess what? *insert name of random kid under age 3 here* once pooped, and it smell so bad!
Me and my cousins: *facepalm*

15 When meat gets stuck between your teeth

I have braces so this is even more frustrating.

Or any food in general.

16 When you chew into cartilage

That's why I eat plant-based burgers and meatballs.

17 When it smells good and tastes bad

I think I'm gonna end up getting a lot of hate for this but I think pancakes taste horrible but I love the smell of it.

That's why I don't eat candles.

18 When the cookie is too big for the milk

That happened to me before so many times, I had to break the cookie in half every single time.

You can just break the cookie into parts and then dip it in the milk... what a concept

Just break the cookie, it's not rocket science.

19 When it's not spicy enough

What that's a good thing

20 When calamari, fries or prawns are under-salted
21 When the ice cream melts too fast

Why is too hard and cold ice cream so high. I think melty ice cream is actually gross and not too refeshing!

Melted ice cream is gross, and it gets messy real fast!

22 When there's a hair on your food

Oh god- anything but that!

That's just disgusting!

23 When the ice cream is too soft
24 When you find a random tough bit on your ham

So annoying! My dad's friend says I waste food, but no, actually, I just throw out 80% of the steak, which is all covered in FAT. I'll be eating peacefully, when I suddenly choke on a chunk the size of Texas.

25 When a popcorn kernel gets stuck in your throat

So uncomfortable and hard to get rid of.

Or your teeth
