If there’s one thing that people are all completely normal about and in total agreement on it’s food. Haha, just kidding, everyone is all over the place when it comes to what they like to eat, what they hate, how they eat something, where they eat it, and so on.
So when video producer Simone de Rochefort (@doomquasar on Twitter) tweeted a question about people’s eating habits, the responses were as varying as you’d imagine. What you might not be ready for, though, is the strange combinations of food people enjoy. All I can say is, what the what?
De Rochefort claimed that she has to put her up before she eats (makes sense), cleans her fingers after each and every bite of Cheetos (OK) and she also dislikes eating in the dark (huh?).
What are your weird eating habits? I like to have my hair up, clean my fingers after every bite if I’m eating Cheetos or w/e, and DISLIKE EATING IN THE DARK— Simone de Rochefort (@doomquasar) April 24, 2019
Although she corrected herself, mentioning that there have been times she’s let Cheeto dust build up on her fingers “like armor.”
Personally, I do this with Smartfood popcorn—I let myself develop a white, velvety glove of that delicious cheese powder (mmm).
Wait now I’m remembering all the times I’ve let Cheeto dust cake my fingers like armor, Cheetos are the exception that proves the rule

The Cheetos issue was a contentious one. People responded that they’ve used chopsticks or tongs to eat Cheetos.
this is why i use chopsticks 4 cheetos

@emoswaggy has designated tongs that he eats doritos with

But one person responded that she likes just letting her fingers get gross and then licking them off. That’s what I’m talking about. Yes.
I like getting my fingies all sloppy and gross and then licking them off like a real scamp.

Beyond Cheetos (which is the name of my new album), people had a lot of opinions about the order in which they eat things.
i have to eat ALL of my fries before i move on to the rest of my meal.. my sister is exactly the same and we don’t know why.

i have to eat one food at a time. i eat my burger and after it’s done only THEN i will eat my fries, and i will eat my fries one at a time. also my plate has to be 100 percent clean even if i’m not full and even if it takes me hours but maybe that’s just because i hate waste
— allegra frank (@LegsFrank) April 25, 2019
I have to make sure the last bite is a Perfect Bite, like all the elements together for the ideal note to end the meal on??

And how food is arranged.
French fries must be reorganized to lie parallel to each other

Bowls for everything, even stuff that doesn’t work on bowls

anything eaten with a spoon must be eaten with the SMALLEST spoon i can find

And just so many thoughts about what tastes good and how to eat it.
I like to put mustard on pizza and uhhh I don’t like coffee unless it’s 50/50 mixed with OJ.

If there is leftover pasta I WILL end up eating some of it cold, straight out of the tupperware, at like 11pm that night. I am a monster.

Thank you I simply CANNOT eat with my hair down!!! and I hate eating in front of someone who is not eating but that feels more common

I mush up small pieces of cheese between my fingers, cheese just tastes better when it’s warm and smushed up
— Demetria Spinrad (@dspins) April 24, 2019
These maybe aren’t weird but they’re weird compared to friends. I have to be fully clothed to eat, I need to sit down, stable, and there can’t be a breeze. I’M A FANCY PRINCESS ABOUT FOOD. My partner eats salad with his hands, no dressing.
— Kat ???? Lancashire (@klancashire) April 24, 2019
Unless I’m in an active conversation, I must watch or read something with any food. I don’t understand people who can eat quietly and just have a think.
I must be entertained.

Sandwiches cut into triangles are significantly better than those cut in half. Also, any “fun” shape tastes better than the original, ex: scrabble cheezits
— Madison Armstrong (@Madison_strong) April 24, 2019
I like to let toast go stone cold before buttering and eating it.

mix everything with mashed potatos. if there’s mashed potatoes and something next to it it’s not safe
— star @ YOUR LIFE IS YOUR OWN (@saturn32x) April 24, 2019
if i’m eating skittles or m&ms, i need to have the same number of all colors at all times. so if i have like 5 red and 3 yellow towards the end, i have to eat 2 red

I’ll eat the outside chocolate off a 3 Musketeers Bar and then roll the insides up into a ball and eat it like an apple.
— ???????????????????????? ???????????????????? ???????????????? ???????????????? (@YandereJane) April 24, 2019
I cut burritos in half and scoop all the insides out with a fork before I eat the wrap on its own and I also eat cake first and frosting last even if it is a cupcake and I am HOLDING it

If I’m eating a batch of chicken wings, I clean my hands (with a napkin or wet towel or whatever) after every wing, usually. I just hate how greasy it feels
— Anthony Nash (@_anthonynash) April 24, 2019
I hate milk/crumbs on my fingers so I shove a whole Oreo in my mouth and then take a swig of milk to break it all down in there. I’m the worst.
— Dan Stefanidis (@elbasunu) April 24, 2019
top 3, mostly texture nonsense:
1. can only eat half a banana
2. flavor profiles CANNOT mix. I can’t go from savory to sweet and then back. that’s a crime
3. I prefer underripe watermelon because if it’s mealy my mouth will go to hell

And one person confessed they were a “serial eater,” which definitely needed an explanation.
I am a “serial” eater. I obsess on one thing and eat it until I am totally thru eating it for like a year.
— Venus Of Willendorf (@VintagePasta) April 24, 2019
We need specifics on this
— I am her…she is me ???? (@runnersbosslady) April 24, 2019
Well once it was dates, I ate them constantly for an entire week. Once it was dried mango slices then tomatoes and olive oil and sea salt; beef jerky; peanut M&M’s, baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, grilled chicken, sharp cheddar cheese
— Venus Of Willendorf (@VintagePasta) April 24, 2019
Well, people, to each their own. Go forth and love your food, no matter how weird and gross other people might find it!
