The real reason why I writing this thread is because I heard on the radio that some

people were embarrassed to eat certain food in public because other people may find it actually sexy  'a turn on'  to watch someone eat an ice-cream on a cone. 

The radio station interviewed  some people in the street and asked people if they were embarrassed to eat certain food in public.  The majority of the people were asked said they could eat any thing in public and they could not careless what other people were thinking.

I am often embarrassed whilst watching my colleague eat a knob at her desk.

If you don't know why a tomato is a fruit you should be ashamed.  It's one of the first things you learn in biology when studying the plant kingdom.

Potatoes are vegetables.

I did not hear the full programme on the radio so I got thinking what food could be the guilty food(s) that may excite or turn on other individuals?

Banana

Hot Dog

 Frankfurter sausages  or any sausages

Anchor Spray Cream

Lollipop

Lolly

Ice-Cream Cone and Cradburys Flake '99'

Oysters

Gherkins

It's a little known fact that a satsuma is actually a type of dolphin.

Why haven't you applied a smiley face to any of these food stuffs?

Are you not a fan of sausage?

Cucumber is a fruit too.

I'm old enough to remember the cadburys flake adverts so know exactly why people may be bothered about eating a flake. I couldn't careless, I just shove it in - (treat sex the same though!!)

Why on earth did they call my favourite pudding 'Spotty Dick'

Strawberries are sexier than any of those foods on Karen's list IMO.

I hate to be a pedant, but technically it's Spotted Dick.  Best served with custard or cream.

Spotty Dick is perhaps a condition which might also benefit from the application of a cream though.
