This post has been rumbling around in my brain for some time, so I’m finally setting it free! Plus, I love sharing my strange neuroses and then having you people back me up. It makes me feel better about myself.
There are four foods that I HATE the smell of. And it’s weird because they are totally normal foods that shouldn’t elicit such a passionate smell response. And, in fact, I eat these foods. But for some reason, the way they smell puts me over the edge.
I actually don’t like eating peanuts, but I DO like peanut butter. But the smell? Oh goodness. I can’t handle it. Back when I worked in an office full time, my boss had a jar of peanuts and everyone would nibble on nuts as we held our weekly staff meeting…little did they know they were slowly nibbling away at my sanity at the same time.
Whether it’s a bowl of Cheerios in milk or leftover Cheerios sitting in the bottom of the sink, the smell makes me bonkers. And, too bad for me, my kids eat Cheerios almost every day. I don’t care how late we’re running in the morning, I get those bowls rinsed out as soon as I can!
Popcorn that wasn’t popped in the last 15 minutes
I love the smell of freshly popped popcorn, but as soon as it’s cold, no thanks. And a bowl of popcorn that’s sat out overnight? I can smell it miles away. BLECH!
I know, weird. I’m telling you, I eat the stuff. It tastes great. But I can’t stand the smell.
I feel better now. For some reason airing out my crazy is therapeutic.
Wet Cheerios AND a knife with peanut butter sitting in the sink? AAAAHHHHHH!!!!
What completely normal food smells drive YOU crazy? And, if you agree with any of the foods above, please back me up!
No food bloggers were committed to a mental hospital in the photographing of this stinky food…but it was a close one.
