Food Hates

I am always so curious about what foods people hate. Literally, it's one of my favorite conversations. Isn't it interesting? As for me, I have three things on my HELL NO NEVER list:

MEAT OF ANY KIND 

MUSHROOMS OF ANY KIND

MAYONNAISE

These three things make me shudder in horror. Especially the last one. I don't know whether something traumatizing happened to me early in life involving mayonnaise or what, but I am telling you, it is the stuff of nightmares for me. I hate looking at it, thinking about it, or God forbid smelling or touching it. 

Satisfy my curiosity: are there any foods you hate/refuse to eat? Tell me in the comments!

olives, bell peppers, Canadian bacon aka the pizza toppings my parents forced upon us.

Capers!!

Tiffany @ Polka Dotted Cats said...

MAYO! If I don't know it is on something, fine. But don't ask me to cook with it.

Hardboiled eggs. I die.

BEANS. Except green beans and edamame, obviously. It's a texture thing. I know, I miss out on so many good recipes! I could probably do without meat if I ate beans!

KatiePerk said...

Eggplant. I find it vile.

j. kendall said...

Cucumbers! No thank you!

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

Oh you are talking to THE picky eater. No seafood, I don't like salad dressing, mayo is DISGUSTING (the mayo we have at work is extra heavy duty... what does that even mean?), almost any cheese (except on pizza or tacos), eggs.... and I could go on and on, lol.

AmericanBridget (Jones) said...

Mayonnaise, sour cream, cottage cheese ---- my top 3 foods that will make me GAG EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Cottage cheese might be the absolute worst. One further down the list, plain white Greek yogurt....grossness.

Charlie's Mommy (Beth) said...

Sweet potatoes!!

Are you a vegetarian because you don't like the taste of meat/fish? Possibly you have addressed this before in your blog. I was just curious.

Kathy said...

what?! i LOVE meat! not a fan of organs though... yuck!

Megan said...

I HATE beets.

wfayew said...

I like raw mushrooms but not cooked. And it's not just a texture thing, because I don't like things that are cooked with cream of mushroom soup, either. Ick. I also hate mayo unless it's well disguised in chicken salad. Other than those two, english/sweet peas & most sausage.

Erin @ Sassin Southern Style said...

Avocado. I try to like it time and time again, but it gets halfway past my tongue and my throat says, "hahafunnyjoke. no."

Oh, and cottage cheese, but that's because it looks like it has already been chewed by someone else before it came to my plate.

Amy Green @ Sweet Home Amy said...

For me, it's milk. And strawberries. I'm like the weirdest person ever lol!

caraheck said...

All meat except fish and beets! Mayo is not my favorite but if it's a tiny bit mixed into something and I don't see it OR smell it I can handle it. Can't even see a beet without gagging!

Kana said...

So, I am the. Pickiest. Eater. Of ALL. And your 3 no-nos? I love all those things. It's almost statistically impossible!

I think we might be 2 sides of the same ew-foods coin...we bring balance to each other's Force. My list of ew-foods is so long it'd break your Commenter, so I won't list them here. Sure I'll bitch about 'em eventually, though.

Pat said...

Beets, English peas, turnip greens/collards, and avocado/guacamole is all that I can think of at the moment. Now if you want to blog about favorite foods....I could list a million!

Meghan said...

I am with you on the mayo! Honestly, there really isn't much I won't eat. Maybe processed ham?

Deals, Steals and Heels said...

bell/red peppers. ugh, they are SO gross, and anytime they are in a food they ruin it by making the entire thing taste like peppers. BLECH.

ketchup...cuz it's nasty.

english peas...OMG, I CANNOT. and my husband loooooooves them. so he gets them when we have dinner with a couple whose husband also loves them, and the wife hates them. it's amusing really.

Marshall Scarborough said...

Fennel, seared ahi tuna, unripe tomatoes.

Katie Hamilton said...

bananas & tomatoes (especially ketchup).

Amy said...

I used to hate mayo but randomly started liking it. I eat it occasionally now.

I hate beef and wild meat, weird meat, I'll eat chicken, fish, turkey and bacon. It's complicated.

I also HATE mushrooms... disgusting.

and olives.

Matthew Snope said...

Raw onions. Egg nog. Fruit cake. PEEPS.

So anyway, Claire -- stroganoff for dinner?

Selma @ Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

Chocolate, peanut butter and mayonnaise. See? Not that uncommon not to like mayo. I also don't eat eggplant and brussels sprouts. Smells weird, and I get a rash. Yes, that bad. And just because...snails and shellfish - fish in general I'm very fine with but shellfish? Nope.
Can't do it.

Jane Droll said...

lol! i think this is hilarious!

don't hate me, but i like ALL of these things!

there are many things that i won't eat, but the BIGGEST NO FUCKING WAY WILL I EVER EAT THIS FOOD is BEANS! i cannot STAND any form of bean! ever! never! HURL! black beans, refried beans, pork-n-beans, chilli, green beans, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, hummus...NONE OF IT! EVER!!!! that SMELL! that TEXTURE! that TASTE! oh it gags me like you cannot believe. my dad was a huge bean lover and we used to have to eat beans from time-to-time when i was growing up. it was a HUGE ordeal for me, which generally ended in a BARFING episode. i can't tolerate it.

zuchini and squash and pumpkin are off of my list too. hurl.

i tried brussel sprouts for the first time this week. they were kind of weird, but pretty good. BUT LORD did they ever stink up my house. PU!

SMD @ lifeaccordingtosteph said...

Noo! I love meat and mushrooms. And don't mind mayo.

My never eat food: beets.

Micaela said...

girl we are the same with meat and mayo. I can stand mushrooms (and olives for that matter) if they are finely chopped.

I am not into artichokes. I'm with Matt on PEEPS! yuck.

erin elder said...

Weird one for me.... APPLESAUCE.

A HEalth video in high school ruined it for me. I won't go into it, telling the story ruins it for a lot of people.

My boyfriend nearly vomits if he eats GOAT CHEESE. He was raised on a farm with Goats and apparently was around it all the time. He thinks it smells like Goat manure. HAHAHA

erin elder said...

I find it so funny that so many dont like BEETS!

I love BEETS!!!!! I eat them almost every day!!

sheba said...

funny how your list includes all the things I love, though I could go for days without meat . . . but when I have a hankering for a good steak, watch out!

My no-nos: raw onions, cottage cheese, and other things I can't seem to think of right now.

Christina said...

Mayo for sure!!! I don't eat seafood of any kind, ever. Yuck!

Beauty Fashion Skin Care Blog - Girlie Blog Seattle said...

I started this clean eating thing, and cut out a lot of junk food. I don't drink soda anymore. It's my food no-no.

Faiza said...

I am with you on the mushroom and on pork products but I cannot resist dipping my fries into mayo.

There's something shifty about cottage cheese. I just don't get it. And olives? Ewwwwwwww!

Kara said...

Did you know that mama June is squicked out by mayo too?? :)

I honestly love almost everything. I will not eat Taco Bell only because I've had a lot of stomach upsets after those choices...bring on the meat, mushrooms and mayo! :)

Leesh said...

celery and peas are my enemies but I will pretty much eat everything else.

Brittany Michelle said...

All 3 of those are on my NEVER eat list too! Mayo is like so disgusting but I hate condiments in general!

I hate mayo as well! In general I stay away from milk or creamy products. My main exceptions are current kinds of cheese and ice cream. But besides that if it's a milk product, or seems to be milky like mayo, I'm staying away from it!
