40 People on Reddit Share the Most Outrageous “Eating Sin” They’ve Ever Witnessed

40 People on Reddit Share the Most Outrageous “Eating Sin” They’ve Ever Witnessed

A Terrifying Meal


It’s not uncommon to want a few red pepper flakes to add to your pizza or soup. Some people can’t imagine enjoying these dishes any other way!


A Terrifying Meal

This person might have taken things a little far, though. Not only did she add red pepper flakes, but she also continued to add them to their soup until the jar was completely emptied out! We’re impressed that she didn’t need another drink to wash it down with.



At Least That Was the Point


There are some eating sins that stand out because you can’t imagine why someone would try it in the first place. At least this one had a purpose.


At Least That Was the Point

Still, that doesn’t stop how incredibly sinful of an act it was to create this mixture. They’re not even the same kind of consumable item, it’s just a mixture of a drink and a condiment. We can only guess that with an entry like this, they must have won the game.



A New Salad


There are certain mixtures that are jarring because you’ve never seen anything quite like it before. After all, if you order a chef salad, you generally know what you’re going to get.


A New Salad

This college student decided that the recipe was missing a few key ingredients that we’re pretty sure most people wouldn’t consider. Not to mention, it wasn’t even a one-off snack either. It seemed to be a regular meal for this person.



Real Kitchen Nightmares


Sometimes, the weirdest food sins come from a roommate. What better way to learn all of someone’s favorite foods than to share a kitchen with someone?


Real Kitchen Nightmares

This included one particular concoction that’s sure to haunt our dreams. The first step was to microwave a pickle — to melt the cheese on top, of course. Once it’s done, don’t forget the ice cream dipping sauce. We can’t blame this OP for avoiding the kitchen with recipes like these.



Hold the Milk


There are some eating habits that almost everyone loves. For instance, who can say no to an Oreo dipped in some milk?


Hold the Milk

If you don’t like regular milk, you have some options. After all, there are plenty of alternatives — from almonds to oats — to keep things dairy-free. We would usually recommend that you try one of those before you jump to an eating sin like Oreos dipped in water — but to each their own.



Some Bad Habits


Some people just have a favorite food they want in everything. Honestly, cucumbers aren’t terribly offensive when it comes to foods to work in.


Some Bad Habits

The other half of this eating sin is what leaves us reeling. It’s almost hard to imagine exactly what this pasta must look like and that’s probably for the best. We also imagine that this must take much longer than just draining your pasta.



Some Real Sweet Bread


There are a lot of options if you want to break bread with something else. You could always add a spread or dip your bread into a soup for a kick of flavor.


Some Real Sweet Bread

What most people don’t turn to for a dip is the drink they’re enjoying. In this particular case, it wasn’t even something remotely compatible. She just continued to enjoy a roll soaked in nothing but Coca-Cola until she ran out. Luckily, this server was on standby with more.



We Can’t Blame You


There are some eating sins that you just can’t ignore. They’re just too eye-catching or, in certain unfortunate situations, too fragrant to ignore.


We Can’t Blame You

Every food sin described here is a nightmare, seemingly getting worse the further on you read. If that wasn’t bad enough, this OP said that each horrific dish came with colorful commentary that was hard to ignore. We would imagine that it would be hard to not let it bother you.



Eggs and What?


Fried eggs are a classic when it comes to breakfast. Not to mention, a fried egg makes a great addition to a lot of different types of meals if you need protein.


Eggs and What?

We’re not quite as sure that we would ever think to add this to fried eggs. For one, it seems like it could create quite an unpleasant texture. Even further, we’ve never taken a bite out of a fried egg and wished there was something sweet.



All the Same


Once in a while as a kid, you might end up staying at a friend’s house longer than expected. This can give you a perspective into dinner time at their house.


All the Same

When this person was young, they were caught at a friend’s house for dinner. They probably didn’t expect to have this experience when they agreed to stay for dinner. At this point, though, we have to wonder why they didn’t just serve all the food together anyway.



Who Needs Utensils?


Table manners are wildly subjective. In one place, you might find that eating with certain manners is considered polite while in another place, it’s considered rude.


Who Needs Utensils?

Still, no matter what you prefer to have at your table as utensils, there are some things it’s hard to imagine eating without them. Eating peanut butter with your hands seems like a great way to make a mess — and tearing peppers to pieces seems effective even if it doesn’t sound quite as efficient.



A Little Bit of Everything


There’s nothing quite like a sandwich when you need a quick meal or even a snack on-the-go. Yet, you can’t put too much on one without committing an eating sin.


A Little Bit of Everything

This family has quite the idea of what a great sandwich is. As a third party, this person can’t even think to try the sandwiches they munch down on. Separately, peanut butter or bologna isn’t that bad. Yet, together it’s frightening.



Purple Cows


Even within your own family, you might learn some eating sins. Visiting other relatives overnight is a great way to get an insight into their personal eating sins.


Purple Cows

This person was staying with their aunt and everything was fine until breakfast. While the food itself was unremarkable, the drink served alongside it was what really caught their eye. We can’t imagine enjoying a glass of mixed milk and grape juice with our morning eggs.



Restaurant Ettiquitte


There are certain places that you’re expected to use proper table manners for the setting. You likely don’t eat dinner at a restaurant the same way you do on the couch.


Restaurant Ettiquitte

That’s why this person was so taken aback to see how their friend ate salad when they went out. Their edit might be even worse, though. Not only does this seem like a drawn-out method for eating spaghetti, but it also seems like a dry and fairly flavorless snack.



Not What, But How


As we’ve seen, there are times that it’s not what someone eats that makes an eating sin, but rather the way they eat.


Not What, But How

When this person grabbed a few candy bars with their friend, they were ready to tear in. It seems like their friend had more formal plans for their snack, though. Forgoing holding the candy bar entirely, he used a knife and fork to eat it a bite at a time.



Not Well Done!


There’s nothing quite as highly debated as to why someone might want their steak well-done. While some swear by it, many find it cooks out a lot of the flavor and toughens the steak.


Not Well Done!

How you make a steak in your own home, however, is one thing. Going to a high-end restaurant and ordering a well-done filet mignon is another sin altogether — a sin so severe, in fact, that it seems to have almost brought the chef who made the steak to tears.



Better Than Syrup


Waffles are great just by their nature of being waffles. Yet, you can improve them even further with the right toppings.


Better Than Syrup

You have a lot of options here. While most people reach for syrup, you could use anything you want — from fruit to chocolate chips to whipped cream and more! Few people would probably reach into their fridge to grab mustard, though, and we can’t blame them for avoiding it.



Fallen on Dark Times


Spaghetti is a staple dish that almost everyone loves. People might change up the specifics of how they make it or eat it, though. For instance, some people use the same ingredients with different noodles or add different spices.


Fallen on Dark Times

For one particular person, eating spaghetti in milk is the answer, although we’re not quite sure that it’s the right answer. We’re hoping that this person only saw it once because it only happened once.



A Citrus, Sour Twist


There are some citrus fruits that you eat piece by piece. It wouldn’t be weird to see someone peel and eat an orange while they walked down the street.


A Citrus, Sour Twist

It would be a little strange to see someone treat a lemon the same way, though. After all, they’re so sour that they’re mostly used as an added zest or for juices, not as a snack to eat on their own. At least it’s a healthy snack!



How Do You Make That Up?


We really have to step back and wonder about a few of these dishes — not necessarily because they’re bad, but simply for the creative and odd combinations that people come up with.


How Do You Make That Up?

This sandwich snack is a great example. While it’s enough of a food sin that this sandwich exists and the recipe comes out every night, how it came to be is an even bigger mystery. How do you find out you like pepperoni, butter, salt, and cheese in such a specific order?



They’ll Do it Again!


Not everyone who admitted to an eating sin was confessing on behalf of a roommate, family member, or friend. Some people had stories of their own to share.


They’ll Do it Again!

As for this person, they knew that their eating habit was a food sin but was completely unapologetic for it. They’re right, though — most people would cringe to see someone eating mustard by the spoonful. At least it makes them happy and they’re confident in it.



To Each Their Own


There are some things that might not seem too bad but end up being even worse than you imagine. As for this one, we trust the OP’s verdict. Most people don’t mind cold pizza and some people even think it’s the best part of ordering pizza in general.


To Each Their Own

However, not as many people use the leftover pizza the next morning as a cool vessel for peanut butter. We don’t know what to expect out of this concoction but we aren’t going to try it ourselves.



Never Do This


There are some things that seem good in texture, even if they don’t sound that great in flavor. Any experiment with food is a risk, however.


Never Do This

While eating cereal one day, this person thought that maybe the texture they were missing was corn. Why they thought this, we may never know, but she tried it out all the same. The result wasn’t one that she or anyone who witnessed it wanted to repeat.



A Little Something Extra


There’s something to be said for a sweet and savory treat. However, that doesn’t mean that anything sweet can go with anything savory.


A Little Something Extra

Still, we can maybe see where this person was going with their logic. Yet, we don’t expect that we’d much like the end result. Apparently, the people around them aren’t very much of a fan of the concept either. We’re glad they found something they like, though.



Please Don’t


There are certain things that you watch people eat that you can never unsee. Kids seem to have a knack for creating new eating sins every day.


Please Don’t

When this person was in school, one kid always stood out to them at lunch. That was probably because no one else was doing anything quite as out of the ordinary as dipping their burritos in milk. Not to mention, the word ‘creamify’ is upsetting from every angle.



Sweet and Savory


As we said, there’s something to be said for a blend of sweet and savory. The two opposite play off one another well to create a balanced overall flavor.


Sweet and Savory

This is not a balanced flavor at all. Instead of mixing the sweet and savory items you might associate with this flavor combination, this person opted to dunk their Pop-Tart in a container of hummus. This is another one that leaves us wondering how it came to be.



Nuggets, Chocolate, and Sauce?


As we said before, if you want to find new and interesting food sins, you’ll want to dine with your child, niece, or nephew. They tend to create the most imaginative meals.


Nuggets, Chocolate, and Sauce?

That’s something this person remembered as they watched their son eat this concoction in the backseat after a McDonald’s trip. To start, he dipped the nuggets in his chocolate milkshake before finishing them off with sweet and sour sauce. That’s a lot of flavors working against each other.



Those Aren’t Supposed to Be Crunchy


There are certain foods that are supposed to be crunchy. For instance, you wouldn’t want to bite into a spoonful of applesauce only to be met with a crunchy texture.


Those Aren’t Supposed to Be Crunchy

However, some people do prefer crunchy foods over soft foods and might even edit the texture to suit their tastes. That would be fine enough but the way that this person adds texture to their scrambled eggs leaves us gagging. You aren’t supposed to eat the shell!



Kids Can be Strange


As we’ve seen, kids have some of the wildest culinary imaginations. Sometimes, they see merit in what most of us would turn our nose up at.


Kids Can be Strange

This kid technically didn’t alter his pizza in any way. You’re safe here from gross toppings or unpleasant pairings. Instead, the most striking part of the story is in how he ate the pizza one component at a time. We hope he likes it, even if it left this person reeling.



No Flavor at All


There are certain foods that really won’t taste yummy if you don’t take the time to season them. It can draw the line between a great or bland meal.


No Flavor at All

Chicken, especially, can turn out dry and flavorless if you don’t take the time to season it appropriately. Still, that’s exactly how this person’s grandma wanted to enjoy their chicken. We can’t say that we can think of too many people who eat chicken like string cheese either.



Mayo or Icing?


When you want to enjoy a nice slice of cake, you have a few different options as to what to use. You might want different types of icing or additions like sprinkles.


Mayo or Icing?

Usually, you keep the cake toppings on the sweeter side, although sometimes people might incorporate something salty or savory as well. Even if a cake includes a savory component, it doesn’t typically involve replacing the icing with a thick layer of mayo. We can’t blame the OP for skipping this recipe.



Sounds Like a Good Name


As we’ve seen, there’s nothing quite like a sandwich for lunch. It’s easy to make and if you’re committed to “eating sins,” they offer a lot of variety.


Sounds Like a Good Name

Ketchup is a fairly frequent addition to a sandwich. As for the watermelon here, we’re not sure it’s quite as popular. They even had a clever and apt name for it because we can’t imagine feeling anything but sad while eating a watermelon and ketchup sandwich.



An Interesting Exception


Pancakes are another versatile option for breakfast. You can add a lot to them from sweets to fruits that will help shake up your breakfast routine.


An Interesting Exception

On the other hand, that versatility isn’t limitless and we don’t recommend smothering your pancakes in ranch each morning. Yet, that’s exactly what this person’s sister favored for quite a while. We can’t blame this mom for letting her enjoy it — we just wonder how the pairing came up at all.



This Has Gone Wrong


There are times that you do something to gross out your friends that’s just too successful. Sometimes, you might even gross yourself out in the process.


This Has Gone Wrong

Still, you might want to consider that there’s a worse option, too. The food sin that you created to gross out your friends — what if you actually enjoyed it? Well, maybe “enjoyed” is a stretch but “alright” is still too much for a milk-dipped hot dog.



Someone Stop Him!


You can ask for anything on the menu at a restaurant. Many places even let you alter a menu item slightly as you want or need when you order it.


Someone Stop Him!

This person could have just gone with a regular Sprite and spared everyone their eating sin. Nevertheless, they didn’t hesitate to ask the person taking their order if they could add whipped cream on top of their Sprite. We have to wonder if it’s a regular snack or was just an experiment that day.



Oh, Not That


There are some things that you can’t use as ingredients — or, at least, you shouldn’t. For example, don’t use food that you’ve already chewed up in your dish.


Oh, Not That

That’s exactly what this person’s sister did, though. She would make a sandwich, of sorts, but the filling is the most upsetting part. It was another cracker that she had chewed up and spit back out to form on the dry cracker as the filling.



That’s One Solution


You can’t help when a craving hits. So, what do you do when you want to eat something specific but it isn’t available? Just wait it out?


That’s One Solution

We wouldn’t recommend going with the solution that this person’s friend came up with. It’s a good option in a pinch if you don’t have any other food around but we’re not sure it would quite satisfy a Taco Bell craving. It’s sweet that their friend wanted to help, though!



Worst Way to Eat Them


There are certain things that aren’t that bad but you can turn them into an eating sin. Apparently, sunny-side-up eggs make the list.


Worst Way to Eat Them

You can eat eggs in a number of ways that aren’t disturbing. You don’t need to slurp the yolk out of an egg and then slurp the white in. While we hope that they enjoyed it, it surely made for a distinct and unforgettable visual.



Peanut Butter With it All


Peanut butter is a useful ingredient to have in your cabinet. From sweets to sandwiches, peanut butter fits into just about everything. Still, there’s a line.


Peanut Butter With it All

There are certain places that you wouldn’t want to add peanut butter to — such as with your eggs in the morning. If you’re wondering how this person takes their eggs with their peanut butter, the options are limitless. Most people probably would shy away from this.



That’s Not Even Food


There have been a lot of food combinations that have given us pause so far. Yet, there are a lot of food sins that are concerning because they don’t involve only food.


That’s Not Even Food

If we saw this eating sin firsthand, we’d probably be pretty concerned, too! After all, when you enjoy a candy egg around Easter, most people know to unwrap the foil from the chocolate before chowing down. We hope that this snack didn’t have any consequences.



All in Presentation


Cake decorating is a great artistic outlet and it’s an impressive skill to wield. Conversely, cake decorating and cake don’t always go hand in hand.


All in Presentation

As for this person, their friend garnered quite a knack for decorating cakes. In fact, her cakes were nearly perfect in appearance. The only problem was that it was in appearance alone. As for the flavor of the cakes, she didn’t quite have a sense of what worked well together.



Why Settle for One Dish?


If you want to know if something is weird, you could always ask someone close to you. Sometimes, you don’t even have to ask.


Why Settle for One Dish?

That’s because oftentimes when our friends see us committing food sins, they’re more than happy to point it out. They might not even be willing to let you live down what you did, even if it’s better than most of the combinations we’ve seen on this list so far.



Off the Keyboard?


Part of eating isn’t just having the right food. You also need to make sure that you have all the utensils and plates or bowls that you need.


Off the Keyboard?

This person obviously didn’t have the plate that they needed. At the very least, they chose not to use a plate but rather opted to eat directly off of their keyboard laptop. We have to wonder exactly how messy this method gets after a while.



Thanks for Sharing


It seems like a great idea to share. However, there are times that no one will want what you’re offering because the offer simply isn’t that good.


Thanks for Sharing

There are few times that we can imagine one is in the mood for a jar of mayo by itself. We especially imagine that there are few environments less suited to a mayo snack as a sweltering California day, especially if the mayo has been out for a while.



Just Try Anything


There are times that it’s clear that someone doesn’t just commit one food sin. Sometimes, the eating sins are so deep that you can think of plenty of examples.


Just Try Anything

For this person, it was their friend with no sense for what foods go well together that came up with quite a few concoctions. After a while of Coke and cereal or ribs and ice cream, we’d probably do our best to not take note of their snacks.
