The smell of bananas makes me puke. If I open a trash lid and smell the peel in a trash can I will vomit. Don't see how people eat those mush and smelly things.

Zucchini. Just the smell makes me nauseous.

Sucks because I love pizza. But if I think I'm going to go enjoy some pizza for lunch ... my day is over.
maybe lactose intolerant? or allergic to gluten or something?

Brussel Sprouts are food? I thought that was just a dirty trick.

Carrots, cake, coffee, tea, beer/alcohol, and spaghetti. Now, I don't hate spaghetti (had it last week), my family just eats it so often I'm 'over' it.

Yet I still try them because I'm at a party or something. I did have some bunt cake recently that was delicious.

Ranch dressing. I don't like the taste, the texture, nothing about it. I've had flavored offshoots like chipotle ranch which were edible, but straight ranch dressing is simply disgusting.

Same here. Though I love Cool Ranch Doritos.

Sushi.

I just don't get it. Even if I can get past the fact that I'm eating raw fish, I just don't get how people go apeshit over it.

Soft/Runny eggs.

This is a weird one. I used to eat runny eggs when I was a kid. A few years ago I got some eggs benedict at a brunch buffet, and it made me want to gag.

Cashews. I only like them in cooking (generally ground up in Indian dishes--don't care for them whole in stir fries.)

Also, store bought salad dressing. People eat it like it's good, but I prefer to make my own. Premade bottled dressing tastes so off to me.

Anything with curry in it.

And I've come a long way from being a picky eater as a kid. I love things like sushi nowadays, and enjoy trying different kinds of foods, but I cannot tolerate curry.

Turnip. My father loved it but just the smell of it cooking made me want to puke guacamole.

Guacamole. Green puke...

Yeah, but sushi isn't necessarily raw fish. Anything made with sushi rice is "sushi", it could be just vegetables for example.

But man, I love raw fish, I just had a bunch of salmon sashimi last night, it melts in your mouth!

That is not humanly possible! Not even the steamed sticky rice and and Chinese sausage wrapped in the leaves? I could happily eat Dim Sum for one meal every day the rest of my life.

I don't know, I'm not a very picky eater. I don't like big pieces of raw onion in salads. I guess I don't like liver or turnips---probably haven't had either since I was about 5.

Re: Name a food you can't stand that others seem to love.

Sushi was the first thing that came to mind, though I think it's not really a universally loved food.

For drinks, coffee and beer. Just don't like the taste. Beer is particularly aggravating because some just can't seem to accept the fact that a man doesn't like the taste of beer. I've gotten so much shit over that in my lifetime. Like it's a giant knock on my manliness just because I don't like the taste of something. In my twenties I would force myself to drink beer in social situations. Now I guess I'm old enough that I just don't care enough to put myself through gustatory unpleasantness (and if people have a problem with it, they're likely the kind of people I'm better off not knowing).

Here's one that I haven't seen listed that I'll admit is weird. Ham. The thing, I love all kinds of other pig products (bacon, sausage, pork). Just don't like ham. Except in the context of Hawaiian pizza, so go figure

Re: Name a food you can't stand that others seem to love.

Raw onions... followed closely by mushrooms, mayonnaise, egg plant, olives, and avocados. And sushi. Raw fish is a food of the devil, slimy and completely gross.

Yuck! I suppose even human flesh would be preferable to any of the above.
