"Dehydrated garlic flakes!"

"I know you're probably thinking, 'Who in their right mind eats garlic by itself?' but hear me out. Once upon a time my mom took me, my siblings and cousins on a road trip to visit her sister. My cousin Zed and I were stuffed into the very back of the van, along with many groceries and home-made food-stuffs made by my grandmother for my aunt. Zed and I were whining about being hungry. My mom told us we'd be three soon. Well, to a little kid, soon is not soon enough. So Zed and I quietly dug into the bags and boxes to find something that could stave off our hunger until we got to our aunt's house. We opened a container packed by my gran and squinted inside, seeing what looked like small, light golden flakes. 'Rice crispies!' Zed hissed. 'Cornflakes!' I countered, poking at it and hearing a familiar crunch-crunch. Rice crispies, cornflakes, it didn't matter. We shoved handfuls into our mouths like starving squirrels and settled down to contentedly munch away on our treat. Then, mid-crunch, the taste hit us. OH. Oh noooooooooooooooooo. This wasn't rice crispies, or cornflakes. It was - 'Bleurgh!!! Garlic!?!?!' We spat it out very quickly, and for a very long time after that, I remained extremely suspicious of cornflakes." Source

Lighter Fluid...
Lighter Fluid...

"When I was younger I was at a block party/picnic thing. There was lots of food. It started getting dark at one point and it was rather hard to see. I got thirsty, so I started wandering around, looking for something to drink. I came across a cooler, looked inside, and saw apple juice! Looked good to me. I poured myself a cup and thirsty gulped it down. It burned, and I highly suggest never tasting it. It tastes like it smells. I then spent a while puking. But really, who puts lighter fluid in an apple juice container when it's the same color as apple juice, then puts that in a cooler? 0/10, do not recommend." Source

"I have done this several times. I might even say many times. Almost every time I've done it I've regretted it, and yet I am certain I will do it again sometime soon." Source

"I received it as a gift. I'm not big on chocolate, so I left it sitting in my kitchen for about 5 months. I finally decided I should try one of the truffles. I realized my horrible mistake only after biting into one and being greeted with the dusty, sour taste of several species of mold. I don't think I need to explain the series of retching and mouth washings that followed." Source
