Link Buffet: You have the right to exist

And just for fun, foods that do not have a right to exist according to the internet:

  • According to Groupthink: unsalted butter, sugarless applesauce, pineapple on pizza, and olives among other things. At first I thought this post was a Jezebel article and felt deeply confused about the Buzzfeed-like presentation, but in fact it is a forum post and thus unfair to poke fun at.
    But I have to poke, just a little. Sure, pineapple and olives aren’t for everyone. But butter without salt added? Applesauce without sugar added? Those are legit delicious and versatile foods!
  • According to The Toast: almonds, apples, biscuits, and anything from Chipotle. I don’t need to agree with these to enjoy them. The rant against Chipotle is particularly transcendent and puts me in mind of this despairing poem about Subway.
  • Also according to The Toast: boneless skinless chicken breasts. With this I must wholeheartedly agree. Why buy the most expensive cut of chicken when you could get a more exciting protein for the same price or a more flavorful chicken part for much less?
