About This Quiz

Food is a continually evolving thing.  If something is delicious, it will last forever. Roast chicken has probably existed as long as fire has been around because it's great. Jalapeno Popper Burritos were only at Taco Bell for a short while because they just didn't work out. Such is the way of life. The problem with some unpopular foods is that they never truly go away, though. Like a Brussels sprout is really never going to leave, whether you like it or not. That's in part because a lot of people do like them, and partially because it's a plant and you can't just make a plant not happen.

So what do you do with unpopular foods? Well, first you need to try them and discover why they're so unpopular. Then you're either going to develop a fondness for them or avoid them like the plague for the rest of your life. And we're willing to bet that if you give us your thoughts on some of the most unpopular foods in the world, we can tell if you're from GenZ or if you're a Millennial. All you need to do is endure the stress of going over a list of foods you may not like and tell us if mayo moves you or if blue cheese makes you go blech and you'll have your answer!
