couscous.

Shrimp. Especially little ones. Like eating bugs, I think.

Mushrooms ( except for morels) cream of mushroom soup and soy milk.

I forgot. Beets. Don't like beets.

I am still trying to like fish.

I can eat tuna, catfish, fishsticks or a little salmon, but anything else tastes too "fishy."

P.S. I haven't HAD a fishstick in years, but I do like them.

I have a texture problem with things that are squishy or wiggly, which includes eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese, pudding, jams/jellies, jell-o, avocado, eggplant, mushrooms (although I have some exceptions for that one), oysters and the like (except for clam chowder), and tofu. I also have a love/hate relationship with bananas.

That list has actually shortened a lot over the years.

Another one here who hates beets. I like most foods. I'm really not a picky eater at all and will eat everything from snails to brussels sprouts. But beets taste like dirt to me, and the smell of canned ones makes me gag. I think most canned vegetables are gross, but like most everything fresh or frozen.

I don't care for Italian sausage or breakfast sausage, but can choke them down if need be. I like sausages like kielbasa and chorizo.

I don't like baby corn. My husband thinks it's strange. Neither do I like the little black mushrooms some Chinese restaurants use, but I love other mushrooms.

I think a lot of people who dislike tuna (unless they hate all fish) have never had good, fresh tuna. The difference between a tuna steak and canned tuna is like the difference between a pork chop and a hot dog.

I like the flavor of things like crab and shrimp, but can't stand the idea of them because crustaceans creep the heck out of me! I'd never make it through a meal at Red Lobster, even if no one at my table was eating any of those things. My anxiety would be through the roof!

Oh I do like tuna sashimi or seared tuna. I just don't like canned tuna.

I abhor caraway seeds and just the thought of tapioca makes me queasy.

Love beets though! Raw or cooked, but not the weird jelly/canned beets.

I cannot stand either parsley or cilantro. NASTY! How do people eat that stuff?! Every time I eat something and either of them is somehow "hidden" in it, even in small amounts, I get physically ill.

Barbecue sauce also makes me want to be sick. My husband slathers it on everything. I can't eat in the same room with him when we have chicken because he has to dunk it in both barbecue sauce AND ranch dressing at the same time. (but I guess neither of those are healthy)

Avocado and sushi. For some reason, both make me gag and/or vomit. The taste itself is benign to me; I can smell it, I can have it in my mouth. But if I try to chew, I gag. If I try to swallow...oy.

Sorry to the couscous person. Reading your post made me laugh hysterically for some reason. It just seems so benign, as avocado for me!

And the difference between home canned and factory canned tuna is also vast. Home canned tuna is so yummy!

Anything with teryoki (spellcheck isnt working on that one for me) sauce on it.

Mustard. I'll use small amounts in certain recipes, but nothing where you can truly taste the mustard.

I also don't do spicy...
post #35 of 114
Mushrooms. Well, most mushrooms anyway. I do like morels and hen-of-the-woods.

I used to HATE tomatoes, onions and olives. I still don't care for black olives, but I love green ones. And I love onions and good tomatoes. Mealy or under-ripe tomatoes still give me the fantods.

Eggplant.

Custard apple.

Sorry, this just made me laugh. I can't imagine falling into a large enough quantity of fresh tuna that I would have to can some of it. Honestly, I've never heard of anyone canning their own tuna.

Fascinating article, thanks for posting. I didn't like cilantro/coriander when I first tried it. In fact, I thought it was disgusting and intensely potent. But now I like it and use it a lot.

The article also reminded me of another food that I don't like - even though I've never tried it. Insects. Any insects. No fried grasshoppers, no chocolate covered ants, no sauteed moths. And worms.
