Shredded coconut. Feels like shredded paper in my mouth.

Marshmallows/peeps. Just, nope.

KFC mashed potatoes. Remember the kid in first grade that ate paste? Is this what paste tastes like?

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


You bloody savage. Of course you would like Hawaiian pizza (ham and pineapple) and not beer. Beer rules.

Mustard. Can't even deal with the smell. Avocados and mushrooms I'll tolerate if I have to.

I wouldn't eat that either.

There aren't any foods that I can't stand. I don't understand the attraction of cheesecake, but there's nothing wrong with it.

Phó

Just a few noodles in water with green onions. It's damn near a scam to sell it. This is one food fad that can't go away fast enough.

Beef tripe, goat, cow tongue, pigs feet and blood sausage. Hispanics love that shit, fucking disgusting. Even before I became a vegetarian 4 years ago that shit was gross. A lot of people in my family love that shit.

That delicious broth is not watery. And what about the beef? Looking back, I think the first time I made pho was 12 years ago. How can that be a fad?

Damn. I love food and haven't had a Pho dish yet. There are a couple restaurants around. Never stopped.

I don't know if it's a fad or not. But I started seeing more poke around. Whole Foods started having it in their fresh seafood section. Bought some and loved it. And then I saw a new all-poke restaurant just last night. Got to check that out.

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

I can't understand how people can eat cottage cheese. Or potato salad. There foods I don't want anywhere near what I'm eating let alone on my plate. Add that disgusting green bean casserole at Thanksgiving.

There are foods I don't like that I wish I did. They look and smell mouthwatering but once in the mouth, gross out. I know I'm missing out on something great but nothing I can do about.
Onion rings. I hate onions but these things look and smell so great in their golden brown greasiness.
Deep fried catfish. I hate all fish/seafood but man this looks good.
Saorkraut. I can't even spell it. When I see polish sausage on a hot dog bun with kraut I feel like I've been banned from a corner of heaven.

A lot of people love cheesecake. I never really liked it myself. If it has chocolate in it, I will eat it, but plain cheesecake does not do it for me.

Whiskey and gin.

People say whiskey has a smoky or peaty flavor. Yeah, it tastes like an ashtray. If I had to guess what an industrial solvent tastes like, I bet gin would be a good representation.

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

Peaty flavor is Scotch, not Whiskey. But I agree; I've never been able to develop a taste for either. Stopped trying.

I'm also not a fan of craft beers. I really don't like tasting the actual grains, it's like licking a grain silo.

I seriously can't stand the taste of anything fancier than Stella Artois.

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

I must say to the sushi haters: most sushi is not raw fish. I thought I would hate sushi too, but some friends introduced me to it the best way: they took me to a sushi bar where the chef prepared different kinds for me to try. I love it now, especially the raw kind.

And I agree about okra, curry, sauerkraut, beer, gin, and scotch.

Cilantro


I'm one of the 10% who are genetically predisposed to have taste buds that interpret the flavor of Cilantro as Dish Soap. Imaging someone injecting a healthy squirt of Palmolive into your Mexican food - even a hint of Cilantro is an instant turn-off.
