Are you a stinky food bandit?

Making your own lunch is a great way to save money.

It’s also a great way to alienate yourself from your co-workers if you bring the wrong foods.

Annoyed office drones in Chicago took to the website Yelp recently to discuss foods that are too stinky to bring to work.

The list includes the usual culprits, such as sandwiches with onions and canned tuna. But these people must have sensitive noses to be offended by some of the foods that made the list:

  • Bananas
  • Ranch dressing
  • Gum
  • Yogurt
  • The yeast smell from Subway

The worst food I’ve brought to the office is a tuna sandwich — so tasty, yet so pungent. But reheated Indian food might be the worst smell to hit an office microwave. I love Indian dishes, but they have a tendency to smell god-awful, especially when it’s confined to tight spaces like a cubicle.

What do you think is the stinkiest food that folks should just leave at home?

    One of the foulest smells IMHO is Healthy Choice frozen meals. UGH! I don’t know what they put in their meals, but they smell horrible. I swore off all frozen meals after that smell. I shudder to think was chemicals are in that food preserving it.
