    10. "Cottage cheese. Just no. It's not the taste, the smell, or even the look — it's because it has the mouthfeel of vomit."

    Kikiboo

    11. "Mint chocolate chip ice cream. I've tried SO hard to like it and I just can't. A ton of my family and friends like it, and I don't understand. I just don't like the chocolate and mint combo."

    19. "Ketchup. I don't understand how it's so popular. ANYTHING else is better on fries than ketchup — mayo, gravy, salt and malt vinegar, even hot sauce. ANYTHING ELSE."
