I love almost all veggies and fruits, but I hate fennel, papaya and durian. I am not too keen on exotic melons, they seem way too sweet to me, or lima beans.

Red Delicious is my least favourite, too. I don't like their spongy texture too much. Apparently, however, they are one of the most healthful apples for you.

Olives. I can't even pick them off something and eat it. Whatever the olive has touched is contaminated with olive-flavor.



And eggplant. I've tried & tried to like it, but it's always either fibrous or bitter. Actually, I had good eggplant once, in a Chinese restaurant in Nashville. The eggplant was all creamy & yummy...That's why I keep trying to eat it, but I've never found any like that again.

There are three vegetables that I don't like, though I do eat a piece periodically to remind myself that I don't like them. (I'm always hopeful that I will one day)

Artichokes, Asparagus, Brussell Sprouts



I also hate white potatoes in their baked or mashed form.



I have a general aversion to figs because they remind me too much of testicles.

Peanut butter and jams/jellies. Especially together...yikes.

And relish must die.



As for whole foods, brussel sprouts, melons, olives (allergic too) and fennel are not my thing.

You'd probably be afraid of dried pears, if I told you what they remind me of

I'm not a big melon lover. I'll have some cantaloupe if put in front of me, but I won't go out of my way to eat it. I hate honeydew with a passion. The other melons I can take 'em or leave 'em, including watermelon. I also don't care much for pineapple, but I'll eat it if there's not much else to eat.

I never liked mangoes either until a few years ago. That's because my dad, who ADORES mangoes, kept pushing them on me and pushing them on me. One day I tried dried mango and liked it. I was then willing to give fresh mango a try and decided that I was missing out on something great. Now I really like mango.



It's interesting to see how our tastes in food - as well as in other things - change with time.



But I will never ever ever like honeydew. Ever.

Good question - I don't care for the things either.



On mangoes: I've met at least one person with a skin allergy to them. If he eats the stuff and gets any on his lips, he gets hives bigtime.

That reminded me - I hate frozen carrots - they are so watery and don't taste like anything. A complete waste! I ended up buying a bag for hubby and I and neither of us liked it - the whole bag ended up in the compost!

I pretty much only eat carrots raw (love em), glazed (love em more than Jesus) or stir fried (tolerate them). I don't really like them in soup, or otherwise boiled.

I'm not a big fan of some vegetables such as mushrooms, celery, and green beans, but nothing is more disgusting than a potato. They truly have to be the grossest things ever. I have always hated them - I can't stand the smell of them or their texture, especially when they are all mushy and nasty, like in fries or mashed potatoes. yuck!

Wait..this thread is also about foods you hate that aren't fruits and vegetables? I didn't know that. Hmm...then...I'll add:



*dessert tofu

*amy's pesto pizza

*prune juice

*sugary cereals (froot loops, cookie crisp, etc)

*fruit roll ups (i like fruit leather though)

*butterfingers (worst commercial candy ever, in my humble opinion)

*kraft lite mayo and kraft real mayo

I actually like creamed corn, as long as it isn't made with too much milk/butter/salt/sugar...a little bit of those things go a LONG way when it comes to corn. I have had terrible creamed corn though...where it was more like this mushy bowl of corn flavored milk. Bleh.
