    bottled salad dressing is an abomination

    No, I totally agree. I'd go as far as to say all ready-made salad dressing is an abomination. It's so easy to make.

    agreed! nothing beats fresh ranch!

    is this unpopular? idk. Cookie dough ice cream is, in general, not worth it.

    I like oranges but find them a little bit inconvenient to eat, and occasionally you get one that's not as good. That's why I prefer clementines. (I love orange juice, but rarely drink it because it's high cal to satisfaction ratio. I do drink it when I stay at a hotel that has fresh squeezed, it's my little indulgence.)

    Gosh, I cannot stand anything about oranges.

    Off the current trend of this conversation but I mention in another post that I cannot stand tacos.. No matter from where or how they are made

    I don't eat tacos, but, if you don't mind me asking, is there a particular aspect of tacos that deters you (like an ingredient, or the presentation, or the typical way of eating a taco)?

    I don't really eat tacos either -- on the rare occasion I'm somewhere I might get a taco I always prefer enchiladas or (if Chipotle) a lower cal fajita bowl, but am also curious as to this answer. I think hard shell tacos (the only thing I knew growing up) are awful, but there are soft shell.

    Also don't get hating everything about oranges, but that's why it's an unpopular opinion!

    To me, saying you don't like tacos is like saying you don't like sandwiches. There are so many variations, with different "wrappers" and different fillings. But, I suppose if you don't like Mexican spices or flavors in general, you probably don't like any traditional tacos.

    Cheddar cheese- like a fermented orange chalk- bacon (agreed) like ham with fat taped onto it- donuts (the bagel was put to an oily death) - nuts (unless in butter form- and pistachios are ok)

    Circus peanuts are good.

    Circus peanuts are BARELY one step above packing peanuts on the food scale

    I'd rather eat packing peanuts...at least they wouldn't taste like artificial banana.

    "plant based" is totally misleading and think needs to be better regulated.

    So true. Pretty much everything now says "plant based".

    'Plant based food is defined as a finished product consisting of ingredients derived from plants that include vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds and/or legumes.'

    Which is basically every type of food. So reeses have peanuts, does that mean they are plant based?

    Not really...it's my understanding that if it's labeled "plant based", that means there are no animal products used. So, reeses would not be labeled plant based.

    It's a way of saying "vegan" without saying "vegan". Which is a distinction because not everyone who does not eat animal products is a vegan. They might still wear leather, silk, etc.
