I absolutely hate the words “yummy” and “nummy”. I have a friend who speaks to her nephew using these words and I absolutely cringe. “Yummy” has been popping up on Facebook statuses, describing dinner…disgusting.

Ha ha ha this is funny. a big group of people that googled “i hate the word yummy”…we should have a convention.
I HATE it when adults say yummy. I dont mind when children do. Sometimes I will even say it to describe food to my kids…but i would NEVER Say it in an adult conversation. The reason i googled it, is because i had a facebook friend who just poated “went to pizza hut for lunch, it was yummy!” BARF. IN.MY. MOUTH.
p.s. She didnt even say pizza hut…she said p-hut…which makes me hate her more

I, too, googled “hate the word yummy”. Facebook posts with pictures of people’s restaurant food are the worst. They just post it, and someone else replies, “Yummy!” Then the OP responds, “Mmmhmm SO yummy!” OMFG STFU!

Side note: I am really tempted to post on Facebook, “We GET it…you like coffeee…” I have a cousin in particular who posts every other day, it seems like, about how she just “can’t get going with out that cup of JOE!” >.<

I just googled “I hate the word yum” too!! I despise that word and it makes my stomach turn. I see it written so much and I just cringe! It is so immature and so many adults use it! I think…..”Is this for real”???? So often I feel as though I MUST be the only person who hates the word yum or yummy (I can’t believe I even typed it right now)! It is also very unprofessional to use that word! I decorate cakes and when I post them to my FB and see (those 2 words)I want to scream and feel a little bad for feeling that way!! The word delicious…….YES……I want to say, please use the word delicious or scrumptious would even do but not (that word)!!!

Well, I think I feel a little better knowing that there are other people who feel the same as I do and have even googled the word!!!!

Thanks for letting me vent!!

Diane

PS When I read the word……I say it (sarcastically)in my head as a child would while kind of making fun of them for typing it!! OMG! I DON’T feel bad for typing this either!! “)

Found this by googling “I hate the word yummy.” So many women in my circle of acquaintances use it to describe food and I cannot stand it anymore, it just sounds so cutesy and corny. I can tolerate yum, depending, but yummy should be forbidden.

I also hate the words yummy, nummy and their derivatives. They are so childish. I’ll give toddlers a pass for using them. I also add a couple other things that irk me: celebrity chef Graham Elliot, the Snuggle fabric softener bear, the Net10 wireless TV commercials, the person who named “Better Than Sex Cake”…and the worst is when on radio commercials they have (they obviously have been having sex incorrectly their entire lives)full mouths and grunt, moan, slobber ecstatically to demonstrate the foods Y or N-Wordiness…yes they will employ these words often

That word annoys the shit out of me. It’s especially annoying when people say “Yummo.” What the FUCK.

“Yummy” is one of the most bile inducing words ever uttered by man. Its the equivalent of lip smacking/plapping as a descriptive medium for how appetising something is. “Scrummy” is equally as bad, if not worse and I find myself increasingly furious about the term “tasty” (except when used to describe the opposite sex or “birds” as I believe they’re also know). The word is literally as useless as a pocket for your socks! Example – “How was your can of dog food?”, “Tasty”, “How so?”,”BECAUSE IT HAD A FUCKING TASTE YOU IDIOT”.

Hate it Hate!!…Glad other people hate it too….just so so childish and also not sure if others agree but its as bad as eating with your mouth open…the word seems to bring visions of this bodily function and food being chewed up in an open mouth!! All these new trendy things annoys me Hun I another…since when did everyone become a Geordie?!

So glad to know there are so many others out there. I lost all respect for a sixty something woman who uses “yummy” all the time – not just for food but for yummy pillows, yummy flowers, yummy everything. She also writes “yipee” all the time in emails when plans have been made. Another one is when people use delicious to desribe something other than food. “That story was delicious.” Arghhhhhhh

I am relieved that others feel this way. When I received a text from a friend saying that she has just eaten a big yummy burger (no commas) I was inclined to write, “glad you didn’t just eat a giant shit-sucking burger.” I bit my tongue and sought solace through Google. .

The very worst is when people use the word ‘yummy’ to describe things that aren’t food. I HATE when people use it to describe sexual appeal, as in “ooh, yummy’ or something really sensual or pleasurable as in “we’re going hot-tubbing!” “really! that sounds yuuuummmy’. The degree of hate I feel for this use of the word is beyond description. And it seems to be spreading. People think they sound cool or creative or hip or artistic or counter-culture when they use the word yummy this way. But it’s just a misuse of an already limited word that as a previous poster said is best for 6 year olds describing cupcakes.

I too am among those who googled ‘I hate the word yummy.’ Maybe we should start a facebook page. : ) Anti-yummies unite! Oh now, I used the dreaded word!

there is a facebook page for this! I just found it, it’s called ‘I hate the word yum / yummy’ and it’s a closed group but you can ask to join. There’s only 23 members so clearly we are all needed over there.

Hahaha. I stumbled on this post after Googling I hate the word yummy. I love it and the comments. My mom insists on using the Y word at least once (and I mean at the least) in all of our conversations (last night she even said nummy! Gag)and it makes me want to immediately hang up the phone. My husband said I should find a way to say yummy twice each time she says it once, but I can’t bring myself to do it for fear of actually vomiting…and maybe hurting her feelings. Keep up the hate for this awful, awful word.

I’m sure someone else mentioned this, but Rachael Ray says “yum-o” a lot. And also, for sandwiches, she says “sammies”. This is so disturbing on so many different levels.

Colin Fields

This is really awesome, I am part of this group as well, those two words yum and yummy are absolutely the most sickening words in the human vocabulary except for maybe OMG, or saying something with the word so in front of it. You know like valley girls… like omg. Also have you noticed how all the women these days talk like valley girls WTF is wrong with these idiots. Sorry got a little carried away there. But yum and yummy need to be banned from our vocabulary for eternity, or just the people that say it would work just as well.

How funny! I googled “I hate the word yummers” and found this thread. Okay, I’m guilty of saying “yum” now and then when in the company of a particular friend…though probably never again after reading this!…but “yummy” is unforgiveable and “yummers” (which I, thankfully, rarely hear) makes me want to commit homocide. As violently as possible. Judging by this thread, it’d probably be considered justifiable!

ha, did the same search. I didn’t know females hated it just the same. For me, hearing girls say it is ok. But when a guys says it, man, that’s just way too gay and irritates the hell out of me

Buck

Me too with the Google search! It’s the only word in any language that makes me wretch. Only exclusion is females under 5. All others should be sent to their rooms hungry.

I hate this word as much or perhaps more than terrorism, bad weather, or expired food.
Other words that fall into this category for me are “jammies”, “tummy” and “veggies”. They make you sound like a 2 year old.

And I agree with the poster who commented about Drew Barrymore.

I searched “adults should stop saying yummy” on duckduckgo! This page has improbably become the congregating place for us dissenters. “Yummy” has no place in adult usage, or even in the usage of children above toddler age. It is up there with “veggie,” “amazing,” and the talking-to-school-children voices favored on NPR.

This word is the worst. The YU part isn’t bad but when you hit the M M Y part…game over. Why would you say that word seriously?! I don’t mind the typing of Yummy…it’s just a word. But when someone says it out loud…my gosh, I want to say something very mean. My eardrums can only take so much of this Yummy? That’s the best you can do. I cook you a GD filet mignon like a boss and all you have to say is “YUMMY.” Get out right now! And leave the steak at the door!

Let our mutual hate for this word and all its variations be known to all and take solace in the knowledge that we as individuals are not alone in our disdain for such vocabulary.

Let us all raise our glasses and shout with pride and some vitriol, “Delicious!”

I had to dump a girl because she used this word. It is like a cheese grater on my brain for anyone over the age of 5 to use this word in public.

David Bruce

Google brought me here, as well. It’s sad that someone’s use of this word immediately has me reappraising not only their intelligence, but also their place in the world, the people who they are close to, and how strongly I shall try to avoid contact with them in the future.

I’m so glad that I’m not alone in my loathing for that word. The hair goes up on the back of neck and my stomach heaves a little bit every time I read it.

“Yummers” is the worst form of this repulsive word. It is both babyish and low class. Once you hear it, you can’t get it out of your head! I’ll never forget the first time I heard it — from a new girlfriend at the time. Referring to some food she liked she said “Yummers.” And it was all downhill from there. I don’t think much about her anymore, but the word still haunts me years later.

Only death can free you from the curse of “yummers,” unless God forbid, there is some afterlife or next life to which it can follow you.

yep, I googled “adult makes who say the word yummy” and it brought me here – very cathartic. I have a friend who’s manly in most other ways but when out with the wife at a restaurant he’ll post on FB where he is with her and that the food is “yummy”. Jesus GOD.. I think it’s her influence… but, there’s no excuse.

And here I thought I was the only person to detest the words “yum” and “yummy” being written (or god forbid actually said), as I have an immediate adverse reaction every time. I don’t know why it bothers me so much, but I get this brief jolt of anger everytime I see/hear it coming from an adult. I get that it’s completely irrational of me, and I can’t think of any other trivial thing that gets me wound up (even if just for a quick second…or two) like this word. Seriously, everyone who says it without even a hint of irony needs to STFU.

I too can say that I came here after searching for “I hate the word yummy”.

I have three sisters, all in their late 20s and early 30s. It does not seem that their usage of the word yummy, and ONLY yummy, to describe food is going anywhere anytime soon. They all have children, so when they baby-talk with their children, they say “Is your baby-food yummy”, etc., which I have no problem with. But perhaps they have said that too often, for it has become deeply ingrained within them. At a large gathering of extended family, when asked how the consommé was at the restaurant on their anniversary, they would undoubtedly respond with NONE OTHER than the word “Yummy!” It makes me cringe and want to throw up in my mouth a little every time they say this word, which is a lot.

Not once have I ever heard any of them use the word “delicious” or “pungent” or “savory” to describe food. It is always, yummy this, yummy that. When my mother cooks a dinner at a family gathering, it is a chorus of yummies. It never occurs to them that there are other, more descriptive words, to describe things.

Sadly, this poor usage of diction can be extrapolated to other areas of life too. I notice that the Yummy-users often use a very, very small set of words to describe anything in general. And none of them seem to realize it. 🙁

Exactly,to everyone who posted. My only question is why is the facebook group so limited in members? Are we seriously the only 23 psychos that detest the use of this word so much in grown ass adults?

For the love of God…I hear some men that have no problem with the word ” yummy” ( I hate writing it) from grown women and I sometimes wonder if they envision in their head Shirley Temple singing and dancing ” yummy lollipop”? I mean really? It is beyond disturbing!!

To me it is like “tummy” “panties” it feels so pedophiliac and just so wrong for women or men past puberty to say. Not only say, but use it on an hourly basis. I read many food blogs, recipes, etc. and 10 out of 20 are ooohhhhh yummy! Wow, so original!! You actually took the time to create an account to get your ” yummy” comment in? Um, no. Get.a.life.

These peoples lives are seriously lacking originality and brains.
