I've referred to the "Hater" app before when I wrote an article about what random thing people in the Tri-State more than anything else.  If you're not familiar, Hater is (somewhat brilliant) dating app that matches people by similar things that they don't like.  They've been able to compile the results of their users and this time they determined what food people hate the most, and they broke it down by state.


A big thanks to Buzzfeed for helping compile the data.  Apparently, us Hoosiers hate charcuterie more than anything else food-related.  I admit, that result is mildly disappointing.  Some were much more fun, like Colorado where they hate Flamin' Hot Cheetos.  Many were oddly specific, like Missouri where they don't like eating the last bite of a hot-dog.  But here in Indiana, we hate charcuterie.

I'll be honest, in fact, I didn't even know what charcuterie was until I looked it up.  Wikipedia defines charcuterie as "the branch of cooking devoted to prepared meat products, such as bacon, ham, sausage, terrines, galantines, ballotines, pâtés, and confit, primarily from pork."


Thankfully, though, our fellow Tri-State neighbors' answers are a bit more fun.  Down in Kentucky, they apparently despise humus, which is pretty understandable because it IS pretty gross.  And in Illinois, they hate when people bite their string cheese as opposed to pulling it the way it was designed to be eaten.  We've talked about that last one on the radio before, and I'm totally in Illinois' camp when it come to string cheese.  It is to be pulled like the name implies...  NOT bitten like some kind of animal!
