We are appalled.

We asked our listeners to sit down on our radio couch and confess their biggest food shame.

It all began with Claire Beck innocently mixing her Maltesers into her popcorn at the cinema.

Her friend was disgusted and immediately shamed her for her guilty pleasure.

We all have our own weird food shame, so we wanted to hear yours.

Prepare yourself. Some of these are awful.

"Cold sausages with honey on them sprinkled with seaseme seeds! Brian"

"Peanut butter and gerkin don't knock it till ya try it.David, Laois"

"Vintage cheese and strawberry jam sandwiches. James Maher. Nenagh."

"Mossy in Thurles here, might be a weird one but I empty the crumbs from the toaster onto my porridge in the mornings"

"Goodie- bread sugar milk and butter melted with tea in a mug all mixed up together unreal !!! My granny used to make for me when I was young and still does and I’m 22  Tom in Galway"

"Food shame... toasted cheese and banana sounds bad but man it’s soooooooo good!  Suz"

"Bacon and fried banana toasted sandwich TO DIE FOR"

"If I have potato waffles I have to have marmalade on them!! Nicola"

"My food shame is a pizza with chicken, ham and pineapple, some chilli flakes and smothered in chip shop curry sauce. It should be made illegal. Ciaran in Dundalk"

"Noodle and waffle sandwich, unrail. Aaron"

"Holly, my sister, eats ketchup and rice as her guilty pleasure!! Cormac"

"Clodagh’s unusual food combination: pepperoni and cornflakes!"

However, some of them we could get on board with.

"My 2 favorites, a packet of cheesy popcorn mixed with a packet of King. Or when at the flix a large popcorn large packet of minstrels combo. Try it, will blow your mind. Paul in Santry"

"Meanies sandwich!! Has to be white bread and real butter though!!! Amanda in Carlow"

"My daughter, she's 16, dips her McDonald's chips into her milkshake. I done it when I was pregnant on her haha!!"

"Galaxy Minstrels and warm cinema popcorn....with a side of nacho cheese from Odeon (best cheese ever) Or ask for an empty nacho holder and pour the popcorn in and you get 1 dip of cheese 1 dip of salsa. Its amazeballs."

"A 99 ice cream & Chicketees crisps!!   Yummy. Brenda"

"Vanilla ice cream and cheese n onion Hunky Dory’s taste sensation. Alan from Swords"

It also turns out Claire isn't the only popcorn mixer.

"Absolutely love putting Maltesers into popcorn. Always do it when I go to cinema. Angie"

"I always mix teasers into my popcorn. Another great treat is twirl bites into popcorn. Let the haters hate"

"No no no, ignore them people, popcorn and Maltesers are like Vodka and Red Bull, bacon and cabbage, Hall and Oats or Abbott and Costello. You can't bate it. Eddie"

"Went to see the new Spiderman film last night with my 13-year-old. First thing popcorn, packet of maltesers all mixed together . Delighted with himself. Tony"

"It's called pop teasers ! Me and my son would do this all the time. Pop corn has to be hot so it's all a big hot mess. Delish !! Mags"
