jeneticallymodified i don't think i've had barbeque flavored anything, but it seems that it smells like smoke. i've had smoked tofu and it tasted like bonfire. thats not a taste i'm remotely fond of. if stuff tastes like burned that means you screwed it up, in my head.

I also am not a fan of lima beans, butter beans, beets, cabbage, or BBQ flavored anything.



There might be other things I can't recall right now. I love most fruit and vegetables with just a few exceptions.

jeneticallymodified i like brussels sprouts a lot if they're not cooked. shredded raw in salads they're like teeny peppery cabbages. if you boil them to death, they're like mushy fartballs.

IamJen <<glad that y'all are mint-haters because then there is more for me. Seriously, mint and chocolate is the most orgasmic taste in the world. Peppermint, spearmint, Moroccan mint, wintermint, forest mints, garden mint, penny royal....oh yum yum yum.



I think my only really despised foods have already been mentioned...mushrooms and brussel sprouts. My dad loves brussel sprouts and when my mom cooked them when I was young, the smell alone would make me nauseous. Blech blech blech.



I have lots of "not a fan of" foods, which I can tolerate if well disguised, like broccoli.

I also had an issue with carrots for a while. I cut myself pretty badly one day when I was chopping carrots. So I was wary of carrots for the next few weeks. No, not knives. Just carrots. Go figure.



i like your logic. thats my kinda logic.

I can't stand the other "kiddie" flavors of toothpaste either, (bubblegum, grape, etc.) the smell gives me an instant headache. Toothbrushing as a child was a major trauma for me, (more so for my parents!!)

The only toothpaste I EVER found that I don't retch and gag while using is Tom's of Maine Ginger Toothpaste. Even now, watching someone brush their teeth with mint toothpaste and smelling it and seeing them having a mouthfull of it and splattering the residue in the sink completely gags me. (much like the gum thing, Spaz, I totally hear ya!!)



I love that there are other people with these same strange issues - I want to copy this thread and show it to my parents... "SEE? I wasn't making this stuff up!! I wasn't a totally freakish, overly sensitive one-of-a-kind weird and picky child!!"

I used to make my boyfriends eat something or whatever after they brushed their teeth before I would kiss them, I honestly prefer beer breath over minty-clean, I don't want any thing that reminds me of gum NEAR my mouth and since so many gums are mint-etc flavored that most toothpaste just the smell or taste reminds me of it.

I use ultrabrite? I think, it is kinda minty I guess, but super mild, plus i've been using it since being forced, crying, to brush my teeth with it as a child so I'm used to it now, sooo many times I've forgotten my toothpaste when somewhere and somebody offered to let me use theirs and it GROSSES ME OUT, once I forgot my toothbrush and toothpaste and this girl tried to put some colgate on my finger and I swear I almost bit her freaking head off.



and you don't even want to know what happened when I tried to use whitening strips.. if I would have gotten that far, I bought them. opened the package, almost puked and then gave the entire 12 dollar thing to my brother.

ugh yeah, i agree with you on that cuz subway olives are not actually real olives, theyre little black rubber washers. apparently they get them dirt cheap on consignment from hardware wholesalers. with everything being plastic thesedays theyve gotta get rid of the surplus stock somehow

TheWaldo aw! i love mint EVERYTHING lol..but that gell doesn't look yummy. =/

but i do absolutely hate olives...i CAN'T eat them.. XP

but oh! i love cilantro! xD
02-25-2009 09:41 PM
jeneticallymodified ^^^ thats the thing. i didn't mention meat or eggs or dairy cos i've stopped seeing them as food a long time ago. they just aren't on my mental radar any more when i think 'food'.
02-25-2009 09:37 PM
Tori~CL Eggs!! I mean they gross me out so bad. The smell, taste,and texture. I hated them as an omni and my parents made these horrible pop-over muffins that was eggy in the middle and I would throw up and then get in trouble for it. I wouldn't eat French toast sticks.



I will eat them in trace ingredients and that is it and will try not to if I can help it. I don't eat many baked goods. If I can sub an egg in something, I will!



I really never thought eggs was a normal food.
02-25-2009 08:54 PM
Misty This is a really interesting topic. I've thought and thought and I can't come up with a single thing that I've tried, that I hate, some take it or leave it type stuff, but nothing I hate.

yay! another mint hater! i use kids toothpastes usually- bubblegum, strawberry, blackcurrant flavours etc.

yeah, my mum really likes it. its like mint sauce, but crossed with jam. blargh. its supposed to go with lamb, but she's veggie so just eats it on toast or with chips. urgh.

jaskins mint jelly?!? That sounds absolutely repulsive. Glad I've never even seen it before!
02-25-2009 08:32 PM
jeneticallymodified oh yeah- licorice is foul. so is aniseed. and mint flavoured anything. i can eat mint leaves off the plant, but mint jelly, minty toothpaste, gum, etc- blargh.
02-25-2009 07:21 PM
Angelwing I HATE mushrooms. Everything to do with them. And raisins. Cauliflower, celery, olives, kidney beans, brown beans, anything super hot/spicey, carrots cooked in the mic (pretty much any veg cooked in the mic), cooked peas, brussel sprouts, vinegar, italian dressing, polenta, split pea soup, black licorice, lime flavoured candy and drinks, majority of soft drinks, sweet pickles, christmas loaf, coffee beans (like, chocolate covered ones etc), strong/black coffee (needs to be flavoured), parsley. There may be others.
02-25-2009 06:33 PM
jaskins i absolutely CANNOT STAND black licorice. most disgusting thing EVER, imo. My mom and the bf love it though, which I will never understand. I like most everything else people in here have mentioned though I'm not the biggest fan of radishes, but I'm okay if they're in really small doses. I really dislike pickled beets, though. That's another thing my mom loves that I'll never understand.
02-25-2009 05:32 PM
Mojie I thought of something else. Bubblegum ice cream (or anything else bubblegum flavored or scented). Horrifying.



My SIL had bubblegum ice cream for one of her kids' birthdays several months ago and I thought I was going to puke right there at the table. The kids loved it, though. Go figure.
02-25-2009 05:29 PM
Spaz also as i've gotten older I totally hate any kind of hard candy, or sour candy or any kind of gummy whatever candy, I only eat expensive chocolate on occasion and hersey or anything like the wonka candies gross me out, I ate some fun dip on valentines & that was probably the first candy I had like that in like 3 years, all the sugar made me feel sick.
