There are several products that I will not allow in the house. My mother probably still buys Gravy Master, which is old fashioned gravy base that we had with roast beef on Sundays. My grandmother always had Real Lemon in the big green glass bottle or the little yellow plastic bottle. Liquid Smoke is another thing I gaze at in the supermarket aisle. How can smoke be harvested? I also think cooking spray a weird thing. Pam is very popular. I don't care how easy it makes clean up! I'm sure that other things will pop into my head.

Warning : This post is for the slightly snobby Chowhouders. This disclaimer belongs up top.

Are there products that appall you that everyone else thinks is normal?
