300 Writing Prompts #7: What’s A Food You Hate That Others Love?

I have a strong feeling this post is going to cause a lot of my readers grief, but the truth must come out. I strongly dislike BACON. Actually, if I am being honest with myself, the only items from a pig that I eat willingly are hard salami and pepperoni. It’s not that I’ve taken some great vow for pig rights (no offense to those who have) but I don’t like the taste. Don’t get me wrong, I will eat it if offered to me or if my only option, but in all honesty, bacon leaves a taste on my tongue that I instantly feel like I need scrape off my with my teeth or with a butter knife (do not use a knife in public unless you want to look like cousin Eddy..).


How do my I know my readers are going to textually assault me on this? Because I’ve already received quite the beating on Facebook. If you have any type of social media you have no doubt seen the posts that say, “one must go.” This is the post I shared, and all hell broke loose on my Facebook feed. 20 different people commented with words and GIFS conveying their varying degrees of disapproval.

The good news for me is the whole comment section didn’t exactly gang up against my choice. The most common “go” item was sushi, but five brave souls said they could toss aside the donut and 1 sad soul said he could live a life without tacos (you are in my prayers lol ). He is married to my best friend, so I must forgive him of this sin, but it will be hard.


So, tell me readers, what food would you toss aside that most others love?

  1. For me it’s alcohol. And I have literally lost friends over that fact. And it’s the same as you, that I just don’t like the taste. And people get offended by that. I’m not sure why…

  2. I’m not a bacon fan either, but like you, will still eat it if offered. The thing I could do without (which may actually put yours to shame) is cheese. No thank you! Blech!!

  3. I do love some good, crispy bacon. But I’m not going to judge you for disliking it. Because, for me, the thing I most often claim to dislike is a food that most people have a difficult time understanding how I can live with myself for disliking. Chocolate… it’s chocolate. I can’t stand it. I have a good reason. I don’t think I’ve ever blogged about it, though maybe I should. I’ve gotten to the point where I’m tempted to just tell people I’m allergic to chocolate, that way I don’t get dirty looks, I get sympathy.

    I also really hate peanut butter… to the point that even the smell of it nearly makes me gag. Chocolate I will eat on the rarest of occasions (think once every couple years). I’m in trouble if someone near me is eating a Reese’s cup.

    1. This is a judgement free zone my friend. Chocolate I can totally understand…I don’t crave it ever. But there’s something comforting about a pb&j sandwich I can’t deny…usually at 2 in the am when I should be sleeping lol
