    As simple as the title, what's your pet peeve when it comes to food? :holmes:

    Mine is definitely that so many vegetarian things have tomato in... maybe it's a little petty on my behalf, but it gets very frustrating when you don't like raw/whole tomato and it's in everything! ;p

    When you order a burger or wrap and the whole thing falls apart. I usually end up eating so much, the thing falls apart, eat the bun and then the burger.

    I'm surprised I don't end up wearing any of it! :lol:

    When it comes to desserts and you order something like a brownie with ice cream. But it also has to come with sprinkles and a million and one other things. Why?! I just want a brownie with some ice cream. please!

    When you order food and you get those people that want to share everything. NO!!!! Yes, I know my food looks/smells nice, that's why I f***ing got it!! Though, at least with these people, you can say no without feeling guilty - the worst ones are those that you ask "I'm ordering from [insert name of takeaway], do you want anything?" and they say no... then when it comes they want some of your food and you have to give them a bit because you feel like a greedy pig if you just eat it all to yourself

    Ordered a burger last week. "sorry, but we're out onion rings. but we can offer you vegetables instead". What sort of substitute is that, seriously?!

    Salted caramel that isn't actually salty. Just call it caramel and stop wasting everybody's time.

    The fact almost everything nowadays has to contain milk, when it doesn't need to, you can't even by a pack beef flavour crisps without milk being in the ingredients. I myself am not allergic to milk but many people are so it really restricts their diet and they can't even enjoy a packet of beef crisps.
