A recent local Yelp thread led to some hilarious venting about what foods are too smelly to bring in to work. What’s especially odd is the incredible number of seemingly nonthreatening dishes that people find offensive. Obviously, fish and burnt popcorn pop up, but did you know that some people really dislike the smell of bananas and yogurt? Michael Ruhlman would have a heart attack if he saw this. Check out the full list below of foods that might possibly offend one crazy person. Honestly, the list just makes us really hungry.
