The other day, redditor u/_bexcalibur asked, "What, in your opinion, is considered a crime against food?" Fellow Reddit users shared some food crimes that are pretty controversial, so I thought, hey, why not weigh in some of my own thoughts?
So, here are some of the worst food crimes according to the internet, ranked from "this can't be so bad" to "this should actually be illegal":
17. "Putting ketchup on pasta."
16. "Using a donut as a burger bun."
15. "I had a friend that used to eat bacon with Nutella. 'Had.'"
14. "I put Tabasco sauce on almost everything I eat (eggs, scalloped potatoes, macaroni and cheese), and I've been told that it's a crime against food. But if that's true, why does it taste so good?"
13. "Miracle Whip."
12. "Boiling vegetables to mush."
11. "Hot dog eating contests. I hate everything about them, and if I could make them illegal, I would."
10. "Pouring milk before cereal. Don't need to explain this one."
9. "My ex-wife used to boil ribs. Nasty light ribs taste and mushy texture. Then, she got offended when I took over the rib responsibilities on an actual smoker. Her pouty little voice, 'Are my ribs not good enough for you?'"
8. "People (mainly on cooking shows) who think adding chocolate to something is a good idea. Especially when that something is seafood."
7. "Biting into a Kit Kat without separating the bars."
6. "Making scrambled eggs in a microwave."
5. "Dipping Oreos in water because you don't have milk."
4. "More of a beverage than food, but I knew quite a couple of people that would enjoy iced coffee and lemonade together."
3. "I saw someone eat pineapples with mayo once at school, and it should be considered a crime."
2. "Mustard in chocolate milk."
And finally, the WORST crime against food of them all...
1. "No seasoning at all. Not even a pinch of salt."
