List Rules Vote up your least favorite flavors and vote down the ones you actually like

We asked, you answered. According to Ranker fans on Facebook, the flavors listed below are the worst flavors of anything, ever. From ice cream flavors to flavored vodka, there are some tastes that don’t belong in our food and drinks. Which is the worst offender? That’s for you to decide.

Gag at the sight of black licorice? Vote it up. Rather die than eat “natural” flavors like grape or green apple? Make your voice heard. Nowadays, everything from fancy cakes to regular ol’ water is being infused with ever-wilder tastes. Don’t believe us? Just scan the chip aisle for the weird and ridiculous offerings of Pringles’s newest flavors.

This list was crowdsourced by Ranker fans on Facebook. If you see something on it that you don’t agree with, make sure to vote it down the list. Just because someone else hates buttered popcorn Jelly Beans, doesn’t mean you have to too!

Sorry Baskin Robins, there are way more than 31 flavors in the world, and these are the absolute grossest of them.
