We've all been there: You're quietly working or reading a book, minding your own business, when someone nearby pulls out a bag of chips. The rustling of the bag is enough to make you lose your concentration, but the sound of your neighbor chomping … and chomping … and chomping can slowly drive you insane. There's even a name for when sounds of people eating trigger extreme panic and strong anger. It's called misophonia, and whether you legitimately have it or loud chewing just makes you roll your eyes, these foods are the worst offenders.
These corn nuts are so loud rn. Sorry to the girl sitting next to me

Assuming you don't break a tooth on these rock-hard nuggets, you will no doubt drive everyone around you slowly insane.
It's so annoying when in a dead, silent class someone decides to chew on ice.😤

First of all, hasn't your dentist told you this is bad for your teeth? Second of all, if you're going to make that much noise, at least do it on something that'll eventually fill you up.
This chick in front of me is so annoyed of me rn because I'm eating an apple lol she keeps turning around 😂😂😂...just for that imma chew loud

Props on finding a healthy snack, but please, PLEASE, cut that Granny Smith into individual slices instead of gnawing away at the core.
eating pita chips alone is the best bc you don't have to worry about chewing too loud

We're not sure who made the original call that pita chips should have two layers and be over-baked, but we'd like to write them a colorful no-thank you note every time someone grabs a handful to munch on.
Just got called out for eating laffy taffy to loud in class by the girl next to me! How does one eat laffy taffy silently?

Sure, this candy doesn't crunch like the other grub, but have you ever encountered a person who can eat one of these without smacking their tongue against the roof of their mouth at least 50 times?
Can't stand the sound of people slurping their soup. Omg stopppp.

Slurping broth may be considered acceptable - polite, even - in Japan, but if you're on American turf, you're going to need to learn to suck that down with more restraint.
The worst is when you're eating cereal and crunching too loud and can't hear the tv

This go-to breakfast has the distinct honor of causing both loud slurps and noisy chomps.
Ever been in a public place just chompin away on some carrots, then suddenly you're hyper-aware of how quiet it is and how loud you're being

You would think baby carrots, with that adorable name, would be just as adorable to eat. But the fact that you've got to keep your mouth open as your molars bite like they've never bit before slashes all hopes of that.
