    I have the same sane experience, although that's less to disliking mint itself (great addition to lamb! And several other foods that don't disgust the French at their mixing, such as peas) and more for to foregoing they concentrated mint flavour that toothpaste and sweets use. In fact, Is much rather clean with s blander toothpaste it that was possible.

    Pineapple. The juice is tolerable, the texture is awfull. Warm pineapple is particularly vile, people who dare to put it in perfectly fine salty pizza are godless heathens.

    Pork. Thin slices of ham or bacon are tolerable, but I grew accustomed to beef and especially game meat as a kid. In comparison, pork is bland and disgustingly fatty.

    Several types of lake fish are also pretty meh. Especially when smoked - there are some varieties that taste great but the stench gives me a migraine. Lutefisk is great, though - it's almost like eating boiled egg whites.

    Citrus fruits taste heavenly, but I dislike their chewy texture, so I basically never eat them whole.

    Some fermented foods are also horrid, but that's the point, because they're a cruel joke one tribe plays on another to weed out the foreigners.

    Oh man, the older I get, the more I like pineapple. Especially fresh. I've always loved citrus like crazy, then mangos grew in me, and now pineapples. I am a tropical creature at heart.

    Also, a local Mexican place makes these al pastore tacos, where pineapple is part of the marinade for the pork. I need to learn to replicate it, I never even thought of doing that but it works just so well.

    I'm very difficult with fish. When prepared some ways I love it (especially sushi). Some other ways, I see it as a torture to my taste buds. And the fishbone doesn't help either.

    Vegan products are a big no go for me. Mostly because I used to hang out with this vegan couple, and the guy was so anoying in trying to make me replace cheese with vegan cheese, it got to my nerves, and now I don't want anything remotely vegan near my plate, to the point I make extra effort to include bacon in all my legumes, and chicken in all salads I consume. There's also a bunsh of other reasons I'm not into vegan products, but this is the main one.

    Finally, I can't stand the smell let alone the taste of tahini, and I'm not big on melons, though I love watermelons.

    Also I don't like bitter tastes, though I drink my coffee bitter, so I guess it depends on the intensity. Grapefruit is a big no-go, unless it's in some form of sweet for example.

    Have you tried pork with honey? One of my favorite recipies, and it sounds like you'll enjoy it.

    Yeah? Me too. I'll pretty much love any burger place that can do a good spicy burger. You know the type? One with pepperjack cheese and hot peppers?

    My favorite burger place makes a bacon cheeseburger with peanut butter and strawberry jam. Honestly, it shouldn't be good at all, but it's amazing.

    On pineapple - there are a handful of tropical fruit that I really loved when I was a kid in Thailand (for like a year), and which I've liked a lot less since coming back to the US. Pineapple is absolutely on that list, though I still like it. Lychee and mango though, I adore good lychee and mango, and I'm either on the wrong continent entirely or a good thousand miles too far north to find either.

    Quote Originally Posted by The Fury View Post

    I've made a similar mistake, though it was only to the tune of a bite of someone else's burger. I should have known that donut buns couldn't end well, but I just suspected and it wasn't enough. I might have to rescind my comment about not really hating anything for it, because I strongly suspect that even a really good donut bun burger would go down poorly.

    That said, I tend to dislike mixing meat and sweet. Sweet teriyaki is about as sweet as I can go and still like it, something like honeyed ham or maple bacon is emphatically not my thing. Though that's definitely in the dislike end and not the really hate.
    I would really like to see a game made by Obryn, Kurald Galain, and Knaight from these forums.

    I'm not joking one bit. I would buy the hell out of that.

    I can totally relate with this. When I was a kid my parents used to pack me PBJ sandwiches with ham, which is an awful combination. (I salute those who enjoy it )

    Through the consumption of coconut milk, coconut water and other coconut-related products, Iíve determined that coconuts taste like concentrated evil.

    I also dislike olives.

    A doughnut burger might be a bit much for me. I like a good burger, I like a good doughnut... together though? I mean, whenever I eat doughnuts, I need black coffee to go with them. Otherwise I find them too sweet. Not that I think mixing sweet and savory flavors is an inherently bad idea. After all, my corner of the world's notable contribution to the culinary world is putting bacon on maple bars. God... I really want a doughnut now. I haven't eaten one since the world shut down.

    In seriousness though, sometimes I feel like I need to try foods that I don't think I'll like. I like to be able to say definitively that I don't like a certain food, and sometimes something that sounds like it'll be gross is actually pretty good.

    While I like the flavor ginger brings in soup/tea/juice, I hate actually biting even the tiniest bit of one. Ugh.

    Anything with a hint of star anise tastes terrible.

    I generally like spicy food and fermented food, but can't stomach the various types of kimchi.

    Soda. It's probably the disgustingly saccharine taste and the realization that I am substituting water with a liquified carbonized candy.

    Beer tastes plain horrible, like carbs in cool, bitter, liquid form. Generally, any alcohol (aka poison) or alcoholic drink tastes various kinds of horrible to me. Unless maybe a bartender turns one of them base spirits into a fancy drink, at which point I wonder ruin perfectly serviceable drinks by mixing them with poison in the first place.

    I loathe pineapple to the point that, were I in charge of the world there would be an entire branch of the military dedicated to purging the very concept of that vile fruit from the earth.


    I am somewhat less fond of coconut than I am of pineapple.

    It's the texture of coconut that sets my husband off more than the taste.

    Knowing how to balance savory with sweet is a skill I'm working on. Dark chocolate with a bit of sea salt? Heaven!

    I like most forms of fresh or dried fruit. But people keep doing horrible things with it like cooking it until it gets squishy or cutting it up and leaving it out or putting it into chocolate.

    I also dislike zucchini. I have hated raw tomatos for most of my life, but I haven't tried one in ages. In general, slimy or squishy things squick me out.

    I agree for the most part. There is something about the texture of pineapple that doesn't match the taste to me. Oddly enough, I really like the way it smells when cooked but the taste, blah.

    I only find ham disgusting. I've been told I've never had good ham but I've tried enough to know I don't like it. Love bacon, sausages, pork chops... but an actually ham is fatty in the wrong way.

    Only thing worse than either of the above is coconut. Just the smell of it makes me nauseous. And being around people who lather themselves in coconut lotion makes me lose my appetite.

    When I worked at a Mexican eatery, sour cream was what I called "nausea incarnate". Everything from putting it into our container, to putting it on food, to the smell was just gross. A little sour cream ruins most anything for me. I can tolerate some desserts or pastries with cream cheese if it's small enough, but cheesecake tastes bad to me unless the chocolate (or whatever) is so strong it overwhelms the taste of the cream cheese. In recent years, I can tolerate some mayo on a hamburger, but I still tend to open it and scrap off what I can.

    I have learned that I like real crema, which is a Mexican condiment (?) akin to sour cream. But most Mexican places around here mean sour cream when they say crema.
    Sounds like I could have written the above.

    Reading through the thread, I have to add tofu. The texture is bad, the flavor is virtually nonexistent, so I don't want it in my food. It reminds me of eating styrofoam. Soy does bad things to me too, so that's an extra helping of "nope".

    Tofu is supposed to take on the flavor of what you're cooking. Also, there are various firmness categories; if it has the texture of styrofoam, something catastrophic went wrong. The firmer ones tend to be better IMO. My wife taught me to make an awesome tofu stew, which is fantastic. I never thought I liked tofu before that, but I have been introduced to a wide variety of Korean foods, and have since learned that it's not that I don't like tofu, I just didn't like tofu in the hands of people who didn't know how to cook with it.

    For some reason, pineapple.

    Best case (less than small teaspoon): 3 hours of aggressive belching.
    Worst case (more): projectile vomiting.

    Actually, I do not mind the taste. Just my body reacts to it this way. It has been tested without my foreknowledge (a friend made a cake with really small amount of minced pineapple) - and results were the same.

    On the other hand, I do mind the taste of cucumber, but love pickles.

    One odd thing for me is red wine, at least most of them (I think some organic ones or ones without sulfates don't bother me.)
    I can enjoy the smell and taste of a little bit, but it usually makes me feel sick. Brandy does as well. It used to not bother me, but something happened that just makes me feel sick about it. (I guess this doesn't technically fit the definition of this thread, as it's not that I can't stand the taste, but my body seems to reject it.)

    One time, after not eating or drinking anything for about a day or a half, I got drunk on red wine with bread. Since then, drinking red wine started making me feel ill. Also, that might have started me on disliking (at least most) bread by itself or dipped in wine. Bread on stuff is fine, but, just typing this, remembering the smell of a tray of different breads makes me feel sick, I guess memory from getting drunk that time.

    If you're working with firmer tofu, you definitely need to make sure the moisture is pressed out of it first before cooking.

    It's a little specific, but egg bakes are a great way to take independently good ingredients and turn them into something less than food.

    Also, coconuts. They look good, smell good, and hold tantalizing secrets, but taste like betrayal. They are the betrayers fruit.

    Egg bakes are weird. They're basically quiche without the pastry.
