Rachael Ray Catchphrases, Ranked By Annoyingness (GIFS)

Posted: Updated:

We haven't exactly been hesitant to admit we don't love certain food-related words: we've already permanently banned the words succulent, unctuous, and foodie from our (and hopefully your) vocabularies. We've even offered backup proof to show it's not just us who are picky about which words you choose to describe your food.

But now it's time to fully call out the queen of all cheesy, made-up, and completely irritating food words: Rachael Ray, duh. She started with EVOO, and has long since been in a competition with herself to out-annoy the world with her baby-talk food catchphrases. We've ranked the most irritating of these catchphrases in order, from only slightly cringe-worthy to downright upsetting. Did we miss any? Let us know in the comments!

    EVOO
    RachaelRay.com
    Alright, this is technically an acronym and not an invented word, per se. But it's still annoying, and somehow more annoying when she says it (or when it comes in a bottle with her face on it). Sorry, Rachael.

    Delish

    Okay, Rachael Ray may have not been the first person to coin 'delish.' But she is definitely the person that has made people everywhere think it's an acceptable thing to say. It's not. via Firstwefeast.com

    Choup
    Gleeforum.com
    According to Rachael Ray, choup is a dish in between a chowder and a soup. Rachael, stop trying to make choup happen, it's NOT going to happen. via gleeforum.com

    Spoonula
    Amazon
    We're not really sure where Rachael Ray's obsession with portmanteaus comes from, but we really wish it would stop. This one comes from a combination of spoon and spatula, which she now even sells her own line of.

    Stoup
    CitizenBrooklyn.com
    Thicker than a soup, thinner than a stew, still totally not worthy of its own word. via CitizenBrooklyn.com

    Dude, sandwiches DO NOT NEED NICKNAMES. Stop trying to pretend like our favorite lunch meal is your best friend and just call it a sandwich like everyone else. via ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com

    Yum-O
    Tumblr: Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
    This weird catch-phrase is essentially baby talk for your food. Yummy is bad enough, but yum-o? Cringe-worthy. via latenightjimmy.tumblr.com
