Are you a mayonnaise hater or lover? Can you not get enough of avocado toast, or do you wish that everyone would quit going on about it? While certain foods seem to randomly gain the spotlight and get incredible hype, no one has ever said that white bread is a superfood. However, while some people would never buy white bread, it is a staple in the diets of many Americans. Whether you are hip to every food craze and suddenly started eating kale or not, we all have a lot of strong opinions when it comes to foods.

So, let us know what foods you think are overrated and what foods have slid under the radar, and we will try to guess how old you are!
