There are certain food opinions that are considered to be shared by practically everyone. Chocolate, for instance, enjoys a universal appeal that spans age groups and geographical locations. There are some food items, however, that some people tend to have differences over. These are controversial foods that seem to be liked by most people, but cannot be tolerated by others. Adding cheese to everything, for example, is an idea that can have people taking both sides of the argument. A recent viral tweet curated these very ideas and asked foodies online to share their most controversial or 'cancellable' food opinions. The resulting Twitter thread was indeed a shocking read. Take a look at the original tweet:
we're cancelling each other over food takes today. post your cancellable food take.— Michael Realman (@trichesfaucons) April 5, 2022
The original tweet was shared by user @trichesfaucons, who posted it on the micro-blogging platform on April 5th. Within a few days' time, the tweet went viral and garnered over 55k likes and 94k quote tweets. "We're cancelling each other over food takes today. Post your cancellable food take," wrote the user in the viral tweet.
A number of interesting responses poured into the prompt. From food pairings to condiments, fruits to food combinations, the thread covered all the possible controversial and cancellable food takes out there. "Pears are awful apples. Who would pick a pear over an apple? Not me," wrote one user, while another quipped, "Mint & chocolate do not belong together." Green olives, bell peppers, pickles, peanut butter and white chocolate were some of the other foods disliked by Twitter users. Someone also wrote that the expensive luxury ingredient Truffle Oil was seriously overrated.

Peanut butter is repulsive.— Cameron Wolfe (@CameronWolfe) April 5, 2022
Cheese is overrated on sandwiches, including hamburgers.— Moody (@EricNMoody) April 5, 2022
Most of the time, food doesn't need to taste that good. It needs to taste good enough that I can eat it, and it needs appropriate nutrients to keep me going through my day. Maybe one food per week should be delicious; the rest can merely be serviceable.— Leila Sales (@LeilaSalesBooks) April 5, 2022
Pickles should be banned everywhere.— ChadLindberg (@ChadLindberg) April 6, 2022
I generally don't drink alcohol stuff, but... mixed green tea + red wine (~85 / 15 ratio) is underrated— vitalik.eth (@VitalikButerin) April 6, 2022
