They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, which is really just a lofty way of stating that people have different tastes.
What’s wonderful to me might be nasty to you, and vice-versa. That’s a fairly uncontroversial statement on its own, but when you really dig into it, even in the realm of tastes there are certain things that are just sort of generally agreed upon as “universally” great or terrible, and to stand in defiance of these classifications is unnatural.
People certainly get that way when it comes to food. If you do, prepare your pitchforks now, because we’re looking at ten of Twitter’s hottest takes on its hottest plates.
It is a bit odd how with these particular bugs, we’ve decided they’re delicacies instead of just pests.
Prawns/shrimp are terrible. They’re the rats of the sea.

Do you love the meat or do you just love the sauce? Cause you can put the sauce on anything.
Meat is overrated and people mostly like the flavor of seasonings and sauces… and what they’re used to. 🤷♂️

8. Flour tortillas
I couldn’t disagree with this harder if I tried.
When I accidentally get a corn tortilla I’m bummed for the whole meal.
no disrespect to flour tortillas/toastadas but corn tortillas and toastadas are superior in every way

7. Chicago Deep Dish
I live in Chicago and I can say with confidence that deep dish is like a once-a-year thing.
It’s extremely heavy, you need a nap after.
ok fine, here’s my real controversial opinion: chicago pizza is really pie.
i fully believe someone in chicago got a recipe entitled “pizza pie” and put the ingredients together like a pie because they didn’t know any better. https://t.co/OxcktGdu4P

6. Sweet potatoes
Well, somebody’s not in a very sweet mood.
Sweet potatoes are not good.
Not sweet potato fries. Not sweet potato pie. Not sweet potatoe casserole. Not the sweet potato your grandma picked from your family farm with her bare hands. None of it is good. None of it at all. https://t.co/JqOJjslbKj

5. Mac and Cheese
I’d argue that the simplicity is the genius of it.
Macaroni & Cheese is wildly overrated. I don’t care how well your mom/grandmom makes it, it’s baked noodles and cheese. And it’s not that good. Fight me. https://t.co/yBCg0qWAb2

Looks like he’s relishing the chance to finally say this.

I could personally do without slaw existing at all.
Coleslaw improves every sandwich. Not on the side, I’m talking on the sandwich itself, like in between the bread. https://t.co/0AleN6jhsv

It is kinda gross if you think about it.
Oysters are neither aphrodisiacs or anything a sane human would want to eat. (They have dozens of eyes, you know.) https://t.co/DuYPCEDYAO

1. Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
Well, when you put it that way…
Mint chocolate chip ice cream is gross. No one should be eating frozen toothpaste https://t.co/dGCaZjTh9o
