Top Ten Foods You Either Love or Hate

There's those foods which you either love or you hate. There's no in between it almost seems. You don't hear somebody saying that Marmite is just okay. That is a thing you never hear.

The Top Ten

1 Marmite

There's an old British saying we have around. Marmite, you either love it or you hate it. This isn't far from the truth. Marmite is an good example of an acquired taste, in other words some British people like it but the rest don't and it's unlikely for foreigners to like it either. - Cazaam

I adore this stuff, and I find it hard to imagine someone who wouldn't. But this is allegedly the case. - PositronWildhawk

2 Olive

Olives are something which you'll almost never hear somebody say "eh it's alright..." Most likely they will be spat out in an instant but there is that minority of people which seem to love the combination of oil, bitterness and saltiness.
I've never tried olives but it would be pretty safe to say I hate them as I'm more of a sweet tooth. - Cazaam

Damn, I love olives! When I hear the combination of bitterness and oil, I would decline it, but something about olives gets me. - PeterG99

Olives are my least favorite food, but I know so many people who love them. I've heard a few people claim they don't taste like anything... which is crazy.

I really hate the taste of olives (though love olive oil) while other members of my family love it

3 Licorice

Some people can't seem to get enough of it, others like me just want to stay away as far as we can. - Cazaam

This only applies to black licorice. Also, this is a spot on list! Great job Cazaam!

4 Mayonnaise

Just about all the people I know seem to love mayo. I'm the odd one out, I can't stand it. - Cazaam

I want to like it, but its either you can or you can't

Mayo taste gross! My sister and brother make something called metchup which is ketchup and MAYO which is DISGUSTING!

5 Anchovy

Most people see and smell disgusting fish. There is a few though who seem to view it as a delicacy though. - Cazaam

6 Blue Cheese

It's literally mouldy cheese. That's the short answer. The longer answer is it's a specific type of mould called Penicillium which give this classification of cheese its distinctive blue spores. Only people who are used to it will like it, most others will hate it. - Cazaam

7 Marzipan

The first one on the list I actually like. As I said before I'm a hell of a sweet tooth so I suggest if you're not into sweet stuff, you won't like it. Still I wouldn't eat too much because it can be incredibly sickly. - Cazaam

8 Green Pepper

Red peppers are nice and sweet, green are not. Because of this, I hate green peppers. Not that I know anybody who loves them, it's more of a like it or hate it. Close enough I guess? - Cazaam

The Contenders

11 Noodles

12 Coleslaw

I hate it but some people love it

13 Curry

I tried curry and not to be racist but it smelled and tasted horrible.


14 Raw oyster

Never tried it myself but looking around the internet I can tell that people mainly hate them with a few lovers here and there. - Cazaam

15 Durian

The most rancid smelling fruit in the world. However the people who live around them can seem to not only get near them but also eat them. How? - Cazaam

I don't like the smell of Durian fruit, but my mother sure does like to eat them. Specifically in the form of wafer bars(yes, there are such things as Durian fruit wafer bars). - ModernSpongeBobSucks

16 Prawn

Some people like this. I don't see how they could it's awful.

17 Guacamole

I love it but some people call it the devil's vomit

18 Avocado

Love it

19 Hawaiian Pizza

Only the greatest pizza flavour ever, but too many people these days hate it...


20 Macaroni and Cheese

I know a lot of people like this food, but all of my friends get surprised when I say I hate Macaroni and cheese

Mac is awesome so awesome I want to stuff my face in it.

This is good, too. Cheese...

I love having this
