    23 Unpopular Dessert Opinions That Need To Be Said Out Loud

    Cheesecake is trash.

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to share their unpopular dessert opinions. Here are the ~controversial~ results.

    1. Oatmeal raisin cookies put all other cookies to shame.


    The texture? Amazing. The sweetness? On fucking point. The nutritional value? Goddamn priceless. People just don’t deserve them. They are a gift to the world.


    2. Brownie sundaes are a FAIL. The brownie gets soggy and completely falls apart under the ice cream.

    3. Eating pudding is just like eating cheap lotion.


    The texture (and sometimes artificial flavoring) ain’t it.


    4. Macarons taste like air and disappointment.


    Even when they have different flavors, they all taste the same.


    5. Thin Mints are the worst Girl Scout Cookie.

    6. Lemon desserts are disgusting.


    Lemon squares, lemon cake, lemon pie — all of them are a disgrace to desserts and should be outlawed.


    7. Those really pale, soft sugar cookies with the brightly colored frosting and sprinkles aren't worthy of being called a cookie.


    They literally taste like you're biting into a handful of flour topped with powered sugar.


    8. Cookies, brownies, and blondies are ONLY good when they’re undercooked.

    9. Vanilla is the superior ice cream flavor.


    Lightly sweet, refreshing, and not overwhelming.


    10. Cheesecake is trash. It somehow manages to take two of the best things in the world — cheese and cake — and mash them together into some unholy, rancid-tasting concoction.

    11. Maraschino cherries taste like cough syrup.


    I don't know if that's just me, but cherries should not be ruined with sugar syrup and artificial colors.


    12. Chocolate cake is not good. It's dry, spongy, and doesn't even taste like chocolate.

    13. Whipped cream — no matter what it’s accompanied by — is absolutely disgusting.

    14. Tiramisu is gross. The sponginess of the lady fingers reminds me of couch cushions.

    15. Cake is better without frosting.


    The frosting makes the cake too sweet and really ruins the flavor and texture. If frosting never existed, I’d be just fine.


    16. Cupcakes are kinda gross. There's just too much icing for such a small cake.

    17. Pies are literally disgusting. Who wants just a clump of hot fruit?

    18. S’mores are the absolute worst. They’re too sweet, too sticky, and just all-around awful.

    19. Milk chocolate is too sweet. Give me dark or give me death.

    20. Fruitcake is DELICIOUS.


    It’s completely underrated. It’s moist, has great texture, and tastes of wintry spices. It’s one of my favorites.


    21. Nuts are gross in desserts. Most of the time they just add a nasty bitter quality.

    22. Fruit should never, ever be covered in chocolate.

    23. And finally, a slice of melted cheddar cheese on apple pie with vanilla ice cream on the side is delicious.
