Not to defend D'Asshole, nor to berate Broomie, but...

"It must be organic!"
"No gluten!!!"
"Lactose free!"
"I won't eat processed food"

I tend to see that as the beginning of a slippery slope that leads to anti-vaxxers and measles outbreaks. I have friends who have some serious allergies and am myself ridden by a severe, it not life threatening, auto-immune disorder.
But often I hear people in the break room who've tried every diet fad on earth and are picky eaters complain about how they are allergic to gluten or whatever. That way, those with real problems are being taken less seriously.

If you're a picky eater or don't like a particular flavor, say so and own it.

Now - the next asshole that says: "But try cilantro again, you'll grow to like it," will get lutefisk stuffed in their mouth.
