List some foods that gross you out!



I loathe corn, pretty much in any form, I've tried and tried, the second I like it I usually eat too much and hate it again. I hate bread & butter pickles, gross. I hate most "cooked" salsas (like where you boil the jalapenos and mush it up), I hate anything with a jello texture. I hate any form of hersheys chocolate. GUM. GROSSES ME OUT TO THE POINT WHERE I CANT WATCH MOVIES WITH PEOPLE CHEWING GUM WITHOUT GAGGING. I've chewed boyfriends out about this before too. I hate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Blue cheese is extremely gross and tastes like what I imagine sponge mold would. I don't like mushrooms cooked in chinese food. Scalloped potatoes. candy/drinks that are red or purple colored.



I can go on and on like this thread(which I thought was interesting so I made one here)

Obviously you don't have to write about meat products grossing you out.

Mushrooms. They make me think of what slugs would look like if someone sliced them and sauteed them.

If I didn't love mushrooms so much, I would be ruined by that image







Celery, SAGE!, carrots...



Everyone seems to LOVE carrots. I loathe the taste of them.

My mom does, too. She says it's weird and makes her gag. There're a handful of other foods she has the same reaction to. Personally, I always loved the texture of Jello. It's like nothing found in nature.



I absolutely hate peanut butter, unless it's in a peanut butter cup. I hate peanuts in general, actually. And nuts in general. I've never encountered a nut I like.



Anything with almond flavor in it makes me nauseous. The same thing goes for almond scented things, especially if they're made with real almond oil.



I've always hated carrots, but they're starting to grow on me a little since I went veg.



My brother has a complete aversion to lettuce. If lettuce has touched anything he's eating, he won't eat it because it has lettuce juice on it.

Oh, and I don't like sage, either.



And I hate the texture of pears (it's so weird and gritty) although I like the taste and do eat them on salad sometimes.



I also don't like bananas, especially not when they're really ripe.

I really don't like peaches, I thought it was just canned or frozen ones I didn't like until I started noticing everytime I buy them they always go bad before I eat them. I wonder why!

I don't like bananas either, I try but I hate them. and they always make my jaw lock because theyre wayy too sweet.



one thing I just remembered. ROASTED GARLIC. like on the cooking shows where they do it in the oven and "omg it just squishes out like this" GROSS. I hate marinara sauce/alfredo sauce that says "roasted garlic" on it also. I like sauteed garlic but the SQUISHY ROASTED GARLIC grosses me out so bad.

Oh, I remembered something else. Raisins. I love grapes but hate raisins.



They have a really weird taste to them. And yet now and then I eat them anyway if they're at hand. It's strange. And every time I remember why I hate them so much.



I used to hate tomatoes but now I like them in moderation (my tastes in vegetables have changed somewhat since I went veg). I even intentionally put tomato on my salad earlier this week.

I hate... mushrooms (blech!) and raw tomatoes (if they are properly cooked/spiced then I can deal with them). Raisins are nasty, too.



Also... I just can't deal with tofu.

I'm also not a raw tomato fan. I always order everything without tomato. But give me something that has tomatoes cooked in it and I'm good

Eggplant. Ew ew ew ew ew.



I personally love cilantro. For those of you who don't like it: does it taste like soap to you? I seem to remember hearing that a certain percentage of the population taste cilantro differently than the rest of us and it is a very unpleasant taste.



Kinda reminds me of that chemical... oh I can't remember the name of it. Only certain people can taste it. We were given tabs of it in highschool biology and oh could I ever taste it! Tasted like chewed up tylenol, so nasty I couldn't stand it, and others were chewing away on it unable to taste it at all.

it has a sharp weird taste to me, nothing like soap but more like extremely sharp cheese (like where it crumbles and is super dry) mixed with a lot of cheap, dried basil.

yes thats how I will discribe it, in small amounts like in pico de gallo i'll eat it but I knew a guy that put it in soup all the time and it grossed me out so bad.

That's really interesting, doesn't taste like that at all to me. I find it gives things a lovely, fresh flavor. "Fresh" being the only word I can figure out to use to describe it. Nothing like old cheese at all

Oh good, I'm not the only one! I absolutely HATE bananas, and everybody in my family thinks it's the weirdest thing. My mom will be making a smoothie, and I'll ask if she's put the banana in yet, so that way I can have it and not taste it.



Another time, her and I both got the same Jamba Juice, except I had asked mine without banana (it was the chocolate peanut butter kind). She tried mine and goes "It taste the same." I tried her and said "Ew, no way I can taste the banana!" She laughed.





When my friend found out about me hating bananas and we were talking about smoothies she said that she would put the banana in first and that way I couldn't have any.



I don't like cantaloupe either, but other than that, I'll eat almost everything else.

Oh yeah, I also hate nuts. I'll eat cashews occasionally, or if I'm really hungry and all there is are nuts, then I'll eat them. I prefer to not deal with them at all (although I do like peanut butter).



Raspberries-yuck.



Not a huge fan of broccoli, but I'll eat it occasionally.



That's all I can think of now.

Is hominy and beets considered a normal food? I think they are yuck. And cooked mushrooms I think are slimy and gross. I only like a few raw.



Asparagus is a veggie that I won't touch.

Dude. I'm not sure that Marmite counts as food, let alone "normal".

Tofu scramble - I don't think it's totally disgusting, but IMO it's not as great as a lot of people say it is.

yep. vile vile soapy cat-urine and burned rubber tyres and very very stinky feet or socks that have been brewing their foulness for a few weeks. i can smell it from 30 feet across the fruit and veggies section of the supermarket. i have to hold my breath to go and get parsley. if you put a tiny bit in soup or stirfry or curry, the whole thing tastes like the stench of stale cat urine in a damp mouldy carpet. i'm fine with corriander seeds though. they taste like lemon. weirdness. yeah, i think i have the cilantro gene. i don't have the religion gene though. suits me fine- nothing wrong with me, its the rest of you who are all nuts for liking it.



there is a similar thing that we were told about in school, to do with breaking down sugars- like 1 person in 10 or 15, if they put a little bit of cheap white bread in their mouth and suck on it and let it go soggy, it doesn't go very sweet. or something. its to do with how much amylase they make.

I hate gum and gum-chewing too. Absolutely cannot be around someone who is chewing it. Haven't ever met anyone else who felt as strongly about it as I do!!



I must have some sort of chemical sensitivity because if I smell candy, gum and drinks that are artificial watermelon or grape flavored it gives me an instant, intense and piercing headache. So while I don't really "hate" red-and-purple-colored candy and drinks, I do hate how they make me feel and try to avoid them or people eating them.
