A List of Least Favorites: Food

When I was thinking about what idea I wanted to write about today, I realized that today was kind of a crummy day and I was in a pretty crummy mood. I was having a hard time honing in on a single idea that felt like something I really wanted to get into. So, I decided to come at the prospect a slightly different way. Rather than diving into something I was super excited about, I figured I'd talk about something I didn't much care for.

The following is a list of favorite foods, but in reverse. These are entirely based on my personal opinion and in no way considered to be a factual representation of the worst version of anything. This is just the ramblings of a cranky person on a Monday evening, so please join me for my take on my personally least favorite foods:

  • Least favorite fast food restaurant?

  • I'm a pretty big fan of most fast food places. I have no shame in saying that McDonald's and Taco Bell have more than a few items I absolutely love to order, so this one's kind of tough for me. However, when I think long and hard on it, there's one in particular that stands out above the rest as my absolute least favorite, Chick-Fil-A. Now this isn't really a quality of food sort of issue. In my ignorant days, I tried it and found what they made to be just fine. However, as I've been educated by people far smarter than myself, I've come to realize I can never, and will never, offer that place a dime if I can help it. There are plenty of terrible conglomerations to give my money to, the openly hateful don't need to be one of them.

  • Least favorite ice cream flavor?

  • I absolutely hate the taste of coffee. It's truly awful to me. I understand why people like it so much, and I know I'm weird, but I can't help it. Coffee and all coffee-flavored things are the worst, especially when you're not sure what flavor it is and you bite in to discover the horror. So yeah, I've got to say coffee-flavored ice cream is my least favorite.

  • Least favorite chocolate candy?

  • I don't know if this is cheating, but I absolutely despise "white chocolate", if you can even call that chocolate. The texture and flavor are both awful in equal measure. So anything white chocolate or cookies and cream can just leave me alone. Runner up would have to be a crunch bar. What a disappointing experience.

  • Least favorite fruity candy?

  • This one's super easy. I. Hate. Twizzlers. It's like chewing on wax that wasn't even flavored properly. They're absolutely hideous. No idea why anyone chooses to eat Twizzlers on purpose. Ewww.

  • Least favorite flavor Starburst?

  • Is there a mango Starburst? If there was, it'd probably be that. However, if we're talking the original four? It's gotta go to lemon. There's just something about the harshness of the flavor that's not quite right. I'd almost give it to orange, but that one has such a smooth taste compared to lemon's needless aggression.

  • Least favorite dish at Olive Garden?

  • I don't like most fish, so pretty much any seafood pasta that has fish in it is a hard pass for me.

  • Least favorite kind of sushi?

  • As stated above, I don't like fish or most fish things. There are very few items in the sushi catalog I would even entertain the idea of subjecting myself to, let alone enjoy.

  • Least
