Overused food descriptions.

There are so many food descriptions that people use (restaurant menus, judges, food critics, or people in general) that are used so often and some of them just do not sound appetizing to me.
But one that I really cannot stand is "ooey, gooey, deliciousness...". What does that even mean? What's "ooey"? It just sounds gross to me.
Or putting a "y" and the word "goodness" at the end of any ingredient. Meaty goodness, cheesy goodness, bacony goodness, eggy goodness, chocolatey goodness. Frig.
Anybody have any food description peeves? Or am I being a bitter prick?
