20 Common Foods Some People Eat In The Wrong Way, As Shared In This Online Community

People have figured out different ways to eat various food items and everyone thinks that their way of eating is the right way. When a Redditor asked, “What are some foods that most people have been eating the wrong way or not the way it was intended?”, many folks shared their opinions on how to eat certain common foods.

Although we believe that food should be eaten just the way you like it, let’s read the comments and find out about the food-eating preferences of some Redditors.

#1 Eating Wax On Babybel Cheeses

Recently read where people were **eating the f*****g wax** on Babybel cheeses and I haven’t been the same since.

#2 Eating Cupcakes With The Wrapper

There was a comment a long time ago from a guy who found out in adulthood that you aren’t supposed to eat the cupcake wrappers when someone looked horrified when he ate it.

#3 Eating The Whole Edamame Pod

When I first ate edamame I chewed up the entire pod and couldn’t figure out why people enjoyed eating them. I did’t realize you’re just supposed to eat the bean inside the pod.

*Not peas in a pod. Beans.

#4 Eating French Toast As A Savory Dish

Okay, so this is more along the lines of me eating a certain dish the wrong way, but when I was little my mom would make french toast except she would put chilies, onions and sometimes chicken on it. I grew up thinking french toast was a savory dish until I ordered it at a diner and it was sweet. I still like my mom’s version of french toast better tbh.

#5 Eating Lightly Salted Peaches With Mayonnaise

My grandfather enjoys eating lightly salted peaches with mayonnaise. If you didnt know there was a wrong way to eat a peach, now you know.

#6 Salting An Apple And Putting It On A Stick

My grandpa would peel a green apple using this nifty little device, then salt it and put it on a stick and give it to me.

#7 Putting The Spread On The Salty Side Of The Cracker

For me, it was crackers with any sort of topping until my wife showed me the error of my ways.

I would always put cheese, or whatever spread I might be eating with the crackers on the top i.e. salty side of the cracker. My wife lost her ever loving mind when she saw me do this. She then proceeded to explain to me that I should turn the cracker over and put the spread, cheese, or whatever on the bottom so that the salty side would hit my tongue when I put the bite in my mouth.

It was a revelation.

#8 Eating Steak Well-Done

My dad believes steak should be well done. And by well done, unseasoned shoe leather.
Growing up I never could fathom why anyone loved steaks, and why they were such an ‘expensive treat’ at the house.
My dad would buy these beautiful, thick cut rib eyes, then toss them on the flaming grill with no seasoning, cook them on one side for seven minutes, flip, then other side, till they had shrank half their size and were charred. Then he would berate us for using sauce because ‘it covered up the flavor of the meat’.
No Scott, your inability to cook on a grill covers the flavor.
It wasn’t until I was 18 and living on my own that I tried to grill my own.
Seasoned with garlic powder and salt, flipped on the flaming grill often and buttered between flips, taken off when I was tired of waiting, I had my first medium rare steak that melted in my mouth.
I have never let my father ‘cook’ me another steak since.

#9 Eating Fruit That Is Not Ripe Enough

My dad served us underripe fruit my entire childhood because to him firm = good and soft = bad. The first time I had a mango that was actually ripe I was an adult and the experience was borderline orgasmic.

#10 Not Deveining Shrimps

You have to devein shrimp, or else you’re eating their poop.

#11 Eating Kiwis With The Skin

I eat Kiwis with the hairy skin on. My mom said I seemed to like it so she wasn’t going to stop me. Later on I find out that I’m a freak of nature for doing it, but I still eat it that way because I just like it. The only downside is that since I like the texture of the hair and skin, I have “forbidden fruit” moments when I’m looking at the abdomen of a tarantula.

#12 Eating Spaghetti With The Sauce Only On The Top

To everyone who eats spaghetti with a little itty bitty smidge of sauce at the top with the rest completely dry and white: Atone or be banned from cooking forever.

#13 Asking For Chopsticks In Thai Restaurants

It’s not traditional to eat Thai food with chopsticks. They use a fork and a tablespoon. Stop asking for chopsticks in Thai restaurants.

#14 Putting Sugar In Mac And Cheese

My buddy’s step dad puts sugar in his f*****g mac and cheese. Sometimes I think about it and I can’t sleep

#15 Eating The Artichoke With All Its Leaves

Image source: The_Prince1513, Jeremy Keith

[A man once sued a restaurant in Miami for serving him an artichoke which he promptly ate all of.] I don’t mean like “he finished the artichoke” – I mean that this guy, who apparently is a *Doctor*, just ate the entire f*****g thing, including all of the inedible parts.

For those of you who have never encountered an Artichoke, the edible part of the plant is a fleshy substance that is on the inside parts of the leaves. You scrape it off and eat that part and discard the leaves. The artichoke heart, at the middle of all of the leaves, is also edible (and delicious). The stem and the fibrous leaves are not edible. Well I guess except to this guy.

#16 Licking The Tacos’ Inside First, Eating The Shell After

Ya seen these taco lickers? You heard of these guys? Yeah, well there are these people out there, and I don’t know who raised them or how they turned out the way they did, but they eat their tacos middle-out. They dip their heads down to their tacos and lick out all the insides first, then eat the soggy shell afterwards. Sometimes they don’t even eat the shell. I can’t take my kids out to the Taqueria anymore because of these freaks. I don’t want my little girls to become taco lickers. It’s just not natural and I will not have any taco lickers living under the roof of my house!

#17 Rinsing Your Pasta

Image source: teke367, Andrew Petro

It might have been said already, but I got tired of scrolling.

I don’t know if it’s “most”, but I know it’s fairly common to rinse off your pasta after you drain the water. Don’t do that.

Also, cooking the pasta until it sticks to a wall means you over cooked it.

I’ve read plenty of ways “to make your pasta better” but those two simple things are the only ones that really made any difference to me.

#18 Throwing Away The “The Fleshy Seedy Inside” Of Guavas

Image source: vasedpeonies, Eugene Kim

I don’t know about most people, but growing up I always thought I hated guavas because they were so dry. Turns out, my parents used to cut out the best part–the fleshy seedy inside– and serve me the dry rinds…

Edit: since a lot of the comments are confused, I’d like to clear a few things up.
My parents would cut out where the seeds are and eat the green part + the white parts where there are no seeds. not sure if that’s fully the rind; I guess the easiest way to compare it is with a watermelon: it’s like cutting away the red flesh and eating the skin + white part. no, my parents don’t hate me (maybe for other reasons) because I’ve seen them throw away the seeds. we are Vietnamese and my parents prefer the dry, crunchy texture with some chili salt and think the seeds cause constipation.

#19 Thowing Away Salmon Skin

If you eat salmon to have a healthy meal, it’s more beneficial to leave the skin on… just fry it with some salt/pepper until it’s crispy.

#20 Eating Banana By Bringing Mouth To It Instead Of Banana To Mouth

Ladies and gentlemen of Reddit. Do what ever you’d like behind closed doors, but please remember if you’re eating a banana in public it’s banana to mouth. Not mouth to banana.

“Let’s See If They Treat Me Any Differently”: Guy Thinks It’s A Good Idea To Play A Food Critic At An Expensive Restaurant To See How Staff Will Treat Him

Being a food critic is one of the most enjoyable jobs when viewed at a surface level. Imagine, your job, in a nutshell, is just to eat, which is quite different from most jobs where you have to put out some work. In this job, you were “putting in,” rather than “putting out.”

That’s why the TikToker Josh Slavin (@handle) decided to pose as a food critic in a Michelin-star restaurant in Hong Kong. And you know the deal with these Michelin-star restaurants, they are outstanding, and they serve the most exquisite, elegant, and high-quality foods on the planet. Naturally, our “food critic” acted like one, which made some of the staff conscious and made them give him an actual food critic experience. Find out below how his pretending rolled out in the restaurant!
