Top Ten Pet Peeves About Food


The Top Ten

1 When the top of the Oreo won't come off

I wouldn’t care because I eat Oreos like normal - DrayTopTens

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

Yeah. The icing gets everywhere except for off the cookie

2 When the ice cream is too hard

Sometimes I bent a spoon while scooping it

I have to stab it a few times to scoop it!

Yeah... I hate this... - TheFourthWorld

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! - ToptenPizza

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.

I like my meat rare - Lunala

4 When the banana is stringy

Just peel it from the opposite end - CameronBinder

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

5 When the sticker won't come off the fruit

Than just eat it like I do

6 Grease

Pet Peeve I know some
Calling Sweets = Candy or if you want to use the candy word then saying cotton candy instead of candy floss. Do you like eating cotton? Not forgetting jawbreaker I thought that was what Ed Edd n Eddy were obsessed with not a stupid word for gobstopper. Oh no I broke my jaw.
Calling every biscuit a cookie.
Saying that biscuits is something you eat with gravy.
Calling fish fingers = fish sticks. I have grown up with the word fish fingers ok.
Beetroots are not beets. that's laziness
Aubergine is not an Eggplant does it have any eggs in it? Did it come from an animal? Sounds like with your word for it.

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!

7 When you either have too many dips or chips

I lust lick the dip afterwards :D

Makes me cry.

The Absolute Worst And Even Worse Is When It's Spicy And You Don't Have Enough Soda To Cool Your Mouth Down - FettiMC

8 When the chocolate melts too quick

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!

True. - Lucy1402

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.

9 A hidden ingredient which you can't stomach
10 Apple slices going brown

The Contenders

11 When it spreads all over your face
12 When a wing or leg is 80% bone

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

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

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

13 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*

14 When you pour a bowl of cereal only to find there's no milk

Something so infuriating I made a vine about it - Puga

15 When the cookie is too big for the milk

Just break the cookie, it’s not rocket science. - DrayTopTens

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

That happened to me before so many times, I had to break the cookie in half every single time. - Pegasister12

16 Not having enough yoghurt
17 When meat gets stuck between your teeth

I have braces so this is even more frustrating.

Or any food in general.

18 Squished raspberries
19 When you chew into cartilage
20 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. - Emberflight_of_StormClan

So annoying, with any meat! I try to eat mt meat regularly, but that out of place piece... UGGH! - Turkeyasylum

21 Not spicy enough

The problem is being too spicy! I try not to order spicy

What that's a good thing

22 When calamari, fries or prawns are under-salted

Too much salt isn't good for you anyway

23 Your ice-cream is too soft
24 When it smells good and tastes bad

That's why I don't eat candles. - Solacress

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. - 3DG20

Don't worry, most people, including me, will accept your opinion. - Solacress

25 When it's so good you can't stop eating it

I am addicted to stuffing

I'm like this with pineapple, then the bromelain tongue kicks in... - Entranced98

I have this problem with Oreos, it says to eat 3 but there too good 😫 - Alapisboy

Especially if it’s not even healthy. - 3DG20

26 Ice cream that 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!

27 Hair on your food

Oh god- anything but that! - Iamcool

That’s just disgusting! - 3DG20

28 When it's so good, but it's probably not even food.

I should probably stop eating my candle now. - Solacress

29 When a popcorn kernel gets stuck in your throat

Or your teeth

So uncomfortable and hard to get rid of.

30 When your burger or sandwich falls apart

When I make a sausage sarnie they usually all come out.

Toothpicks help solve this issue

31 When it smells bad and tastes good

Oh no

32 When you are eating and you bite on a bone/rock
33 When tacos fall apart

Toothpicks solve this problem

34 When you want to see how many licks it takes to devour a tootsie pop and accidentally bite it
35 Cereal with dry strawberries in it
36 When it tastes good as a flavour in some foods, but not alone or in other foods

Exactly how I feel about peanuts. - 3DG20

37 When you suddenly gag or want to vomit after eating certain foods

Oh yeah, when I stuff a whole orange into my mouth, I feel like throwing up for the rest of the day. - Solacress

Once many years ago, I ate a really soft/overripe banana and I started retching. I didn't vomit, thank goodness.

To this day I still can't stand overripe bananas.

38 When you eat a certain food one day and then get suspected food poisoning symptoms the next

In Nov 2010 I got diarrhea, fever, nausea, and vomiting after having homemade soup.

In Jan 2013 I suffered from diarrhea after eating hot and sour soup my dad brought home.

Once I got a fever after eating Pizza hut, and last month I got explosive poop (not diarrhea) from Burger King.

They all may be caused by either me eating too much food or a stomach virus, but I'm not 100 sure...

39 Where you're eating something then realized that it was expired/moldy

I have eaten tons of moldy/expired food over the years. Mostly I ate expired food, but sometimes I find mold in my food and was unaware while I was eating it. My parents think that it will kill me, but I am still alive.

40 Flies/bugs in your soup
41 When you put food out and the flies eat it before you do
42 When the meat is too fat
43 When you eat something and you feel your teeth moving

This is why I cut up food into bite sized pieces before eating them sometimes. I don't want to break my teeth!

44 When you accidentally swallowed bone
45 When you find a squishy grape
46 Cold pizza
47 People who bite cheese sticks
48 Fruit that tastes like grass
49 Bruised bananas
50 When you're biting a cherry tomato and the juice squirts everywhere
