October is the time of year when ghosts and goblins take center stage. But for some people, it’s not the things that go bump in the night that bring the horror — it’s mushrooms, veggies and chopsticks that make All Hallows Eve the most terrifying time of year.
Acerophobia: Fear of sourness
Sweet and savory are the only flavor options for these people.
Arachibutyrophobia: Fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth
When you put your sandwich in your mouth to take a bite, make sure the slice with the peanut butter on it is on the bottom. Problem solved.
Carnophobia: Fear of meat
This fear would be one reason why someone may prefer a vegetarian diet.

Many people find a fork and a knife to be a whole lot easier to use anyway!

Some people would just prefer to order their food to go!

The fruit of the vine can send shivers down the spine.
