    4. When powdered sugar makes you choke and cough and basically tries to kill you.

    5. When your Klondike bar just HAS to break halfway through eating it.


    Even more painful in slo-mo.

    And you can literally feel the pimples forming because of all that grease.

    11. When your muffin starts sticking to the wrapper.

    12. When this white stuff that kind of tastes like a dry spider web gets in your mouth.

    13. When your steak turns out to be mostly gristle.


    14. When your ice cream does this.

    15. When there's some hardheaded peanut butter that just won't come out of the jar.

    16. When candy gets stuck to the wrapper and you end up eating a little of the paper and gluey stuff that kept the wrapper together.


    Cough cough Starburst.

    17. The blue tongue epidemic.

    18. When your milkshake is waaaayy too thick.


    Cool, I'm glad I can't even drink this thing that I bought for the EXPRESS PURPOSE OF DRINKING.

    19. When your ice cream is so hard that it's impossible to scoop.


    This person literally had to use a knife. A KNIFE.

    20. When barbecue sauce decides it would much rather cover your entire face and hands than the chicken IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE ON.
