When it comes to food, there are few universal statements that everyone seems to agree with. For instance, the everlasting love for tea, the stubborn bias against pineapple pizza, and so on. These are food associations and statements we have heard so often, they almost sound like eternal truths. However, there is also a small section of the population that does not necessarily agree with these opinions. Although this may sound surprising, certain popular dishes are not everyone's cup of tea. For example, putting ketchup on pizza is a debate which food enthusiasts often engage in. A Twitter user prompted people to share more such controversial food opinions that they truly believe. Take a look:

Mangoes are not tasty. They look very dirty and you can't even hold it bcoz of the juices flowing out of it. And mango juice tastes yuck. Also, Bombay Duck isn't a fish to eat. Chocolate Sandwich is the worst.— __anon_not_vile???????????? (@__anon_not_vile) January 14, 2021

If not for all memes and derogatory posts, pineapple pizza would not have such a big fuss. Its as good or as bad as any other pizza toping and some of us really like the little sweet little sour taste between spicy sauce and salty cheese— Akshit Asr (@AkshitAsrani) January 14, 2021
