OPINION: This week's hot food takes


Danny William: I am not a soup fan. Food should be solid! Why is it “normal” to eat liquid for dinner? 

Elizabeth Valadez: Fettucine alfredo has got to be the worst pasta combo to exist. For one, fettucine is pretty much the worst type of noodle. No grooves, no fun shape, no cylinders. Just flat, boring noodles. For two, alfredo is such a boring flavor. Where is the spice? The zest? Not in a dish of fettucine alfredo, that’s for sure. 

Jared Quigg: I don’t like vegetables. I am a grown man, but I have a child’s diet. I like chicken tendies and chocolate cake and macaroni and cheese. I will die at the age of 54 because of a poor diet. Sure, I could change course. Eat vegetables and fruits that aren’t in a dessert. But I’d rather die at the age of 54 because of a poor diet.  

Ellie Albin: All grape and orange-flavored candy is atrocious. Talk to the wall. 

Natalie Fitzgibbons: Ever since I was little, I’ve never been a huge fan of cheese. And it’s not that I don’t like it – I'll still eat it like vegetables. It’s to the point where it makes me gag. However, if the cheese is overpowered by another flavor, I can usually eat it. Because of that, I’ve never understood why people smother their pizza, nachos and other foods in cheese. Like, how can some people like cheese that much? What makes it so delicious to them? 

Isabella Vesperini: There is no room in my heart for breakfast for dinner. There's a reason it’s called breakfast. Eating waffles and bagels for dinner is really not my thing. It throws the whole dinner vibe off. It makes dinner seem less exciting and important.
