Just looking at a recipe and someone has added the offending three words. AIBU?

Annoying, yes, but 'yummy' actually makes my eyes bleed.

‘Yummy’ makes me cringe. ‘Yumminess’ puts me off my food

Yes, it’s so childish. I don’t mind ‘yummy’ but I was told it means ‘I’m horny’ in Vietnamese so it always makes me giggle when someone says it.

Gives me the rage! Much worse than yummy, although I don't like that either.

My sister says nom. It makes me want to disown her. Yummy should be banned.

And I thought I was the only one as everyone seems to use those toe-curling phrases.

Nom nom nom and yummy are babyish imo so yanbu. What about the words bubba and boo? Cringing right now.

It irritates me too. I can’t stand the word snacks either, or plentiful..

And as I’m a chef I have to see these words quite often .. arghh.

YANBU. Also rage inducing - yummy, hubby, cuppa, tummy when used by anyone over age of 5. Oh and 'hun' of course.

The words divine and sublime annoy me sometimes. I remember a thread on here years ago about favourite foods and one was something like “Ham and egg sandwich. Simply sublime!” Fuck off. Choccie, biccie, breakie....most abbreviations that turn a perfectly normal word into childish nonsense really.

I was reading this thinking: gosh these people are so intolerant when I overheard someone describe something as "lush" Angry. Instant rage! "Pudding" does the same, as does "belly" AngryAngryAngry. So budge up fellow intolerants, I'll join you on the Unreasonable Bench (and will try not to refer to what choccy treats I had for brekkie, and how yummy they were)

My ex mil used to nomnomnom for the children to eat there food she also used to get an empty plate and fork and pretend to eat making noises of ecstasy plus of course she would cry if they didn't eat all of her food it just brings to mind poor parenting choices and issues with food my elder son asked her to stop in the end he told her mommy doesn't make us finish the plate if we are no longer hungry Blush good boy

Nom and yum ruin all the food related threads on here

In particular when used as a sentence on its own. Eg

Bangers and mash. Yum.

I even angered myself typing that.

Its up there with hubby and holibobs

Yes, it's a shooting-at-dawn sort of offence in my book (which is quite long, and also includes instant death for words like hubby, holibobs, yay, boobies, famalam, and biccies). It's even worse when it actually gets turned into a noun to describe food, i.e. "tasty noms". Oh, and "tasty" can go on the list while I'm at it.
