Perfectly Good Foods Ruined by Dumb Traditions

(Please do add your proposals; ignore the fact that @Nicholas does not appreciate the fact that brine makes stupid cucumbers into magic magic pickles I love you pickles.)
  1. ICEBERG LETTUCE
    Who decided to disaggregate a head of iceberg lettuce? Look! What does it do naturally? Look! It provides a perfect platform for buttermilk dressing or whatever else you think it needs. (Not much.) Who looked at a salad bowl and said "You know, there are plenty of loose leaf vegetables out there, but I think we should smash this perfect and crunchy ball into a bunch of pieces and force it to sorta be flat and oops sorry we kinda ruined the crunch part and the flavor, too."
