What common foods that everyone else love but you can't stand!
Obviously for me it's Watermelon and any relative of the watermelon.

I also can't stand Baked Beans or Chili - yuky yuk!

1. Mushrooms.
Ugh! Nobody has ever been able to convince me that this grow in the dark fungus is an actual food product.

2. I do not eat peas, okra, artichokes, lamb or veal. Liver either, for that matter.
There are foods I will eat with great reluctance, but to eat any of the above would have to involve an alternative of starvation.

6. Reviewing Lounge threads brought another to mind: couscous.
Hummus. All that middle eastern stuff with too much spices and grape leaves and all that. You keep the grape leaves, I'll eat the grapes. And cook with the wine.

21. Couscous sounds like what you say when you're tickling someone.
It's just to funny a word to put on my plate.

I've been told that I need to prove my "southerness" because of my dislike of these two TX staples. Whatever.

ETA ham- hate ham.

20. Meat. Cantalope. Tea and coffee, if those are foods. I like most things
I treat food like I treat the rest of my personal tastes--I try to see what others see in it, and try to enjoy it for that, instead of letting my first opinions decide things. Cantalope I just can't like. Coffee and tea cannot possibly taste to other people like they do to me, or no one could drink it. The gag reflex alone they produce in me would prevent anyone from physically swallowing it most of the time.

25. Ground Beef
Or it's soy and turkey substitutes. Ham. All seafood. Baby carrots (I like the long ones though). Any kind of chicken besides baked breast, including the kind they have at restaurants, and in soup. Vegetables in dishes where they have to be cooked, I can only eat them steamed of raw. A lot of other stuff, too. I'm finicky. :)

29. those baby carrots...just big carrots cut and peeled
a baby cut carrot, known popularly thanks to effective marketing also as a "baby carrot", is a mature carrot that has been cut and peeled in the "baby-cut" style.

50. I did not know that
But I think that's it's more a mental thing than anything. When I was seven I loved carrots, all I would eat. But then my also-seven-year-old cousin made me a carrot salad while I was staying at her house two-hundred miles away from where I lived at the time and I got the very worst stomach bug I've ever gotten before or since. And I still had to stay the full week. The worst part was my aunt and uncle didn't really like me back then and thought I was faking.

26. Just about everything on the menu at most big chain fast food joints.
The food is either too salty or too bland.

Hate 'em, and everybody else in the world seems to think they belong in damn near everything.

Oh, yeah, and carrots. And that heinous concoction that turns up every Thanksgiving, that nasty glop made of sweet potatoes and marshmallows. That stuff is disgusting.

44. Mayonnaise
But I do like potato and egg salad. I just always use yoghurt cheese or sour cream instead. For some reason those don't bug me :shrug:

I'm not a big fan of olives either, but I really like olive flavor. If someone cuts them up really really fine and adds them to pasta sauce I think it's great but the idea of biting into a whole thing of olive gives me the heebie-jeebies.

There is no (common) food that just really disgusts me.

Either I'm too agreeable or I haven't been exposed to enough awful food.
