It seems like kids are picky eaters regardless of what parenting tactics you use.  So someone on Twitter recently asked people to name the strangest eating habits they had as a kid.  Here are the best ones we saw . . .

1.  Someone said they used to only eat bananas cut lengthwise with mayonnaise.

2.  Uncooked pasta dipped in peanut butter.

3.  Salted lemon slices.

4.  Cereal with 7-Up instead of milk.

5.  Crushed-up Doritos sprinkled on ice cream.

6.  Some guy said he went through a phase where he just really loved the taste of his cat’s dry food.

7.  A woman who used to eat paper said she liked to write on it first, because, quote, “the ink gave it flavor.” 

8.  Some woman admitted she used to carry around a packet of Swiss Miss hot cocoa mix and use it like chewing tobacco.

9.  Plain spaghetti, with Diet Coke as the “sauce.”

10.  A woman and her sister used to love eating “pool chips” . . . which are, quote, “tortilla chips we dipped in the swimming pool.”
