When it comes to aromatic foods that draw complaints in an office, microwave popcorn tends to lead the list, according to the nonprofit employer association MRA. But it's not the only smelly food that irks co-workers. With input from Businessweek magazine, here are others that don't pass the sniff test:

• Meatloaf

• Brussels sprouts

• Steamed cauliflower

• Anything seasoned with garlic or onions

• Blue cheese

• Bacon

• Corned beef hash

• Fish sticks

• Sauerkraut
