Food: We eat it every day to avoid that little thing called “death”. And of course, we all have our favorites and aversions. But what about those sneaky little food trends that explosively inundate our pop culture and then seemingly disappear? We asked our readers for the most aggravating food trends they could think of, and their responses were nothing short of delicious!
