    What foods make you want to *barfff* at the very thought of eating them...what food do you really hate, or do you have an intolerance perhaps to some foods ?

    What would you eat ONLY if you were in danger of starving to death..?


    I am really quite a fussy eater so there's quite a list of foods I cannot stand...

    ..but first and foremost are Courgettes ( zucchini) Marrows and Dill pickles...****errrrrk***

    I know those 3 are very popular in the USA but for us in the UK not so much....and I personally hate them...!!


    Another thing I cannot stand is Pork (except for bacon)...the texture and the taste is just horrible regardless of how it's cooked..

    There are not many foods I hate but some things I won't eat are raw or under cooked meat. I have no use for artichokes and I always grow yellow squash instead of zucchini.

    The first thing that came to mind for me is yogurt. I just can't eat it without gagging... always been that way. I thought when Greek yogurt starting getting so popular, maybe I could eat it... and it was in soooo many low cal recipes I'd been seeing to take the place of mayo, etc. but nope... just the thought of it still gives me that same reaction.

    I'm going to also "steal" ("borrow" maybe, if he's in a good mood today! :)) @Sheldon Scott 's answer about under-cooked meat... I've never been able to understand how anyone could eat meat in the "rare" stage with pink still showing. Oh my goodness, that just isn't me! :eek:

    I don't like lamb. Will only eat the most perfect lamb chop in a Greek restaurant. Also had a very good Greek friend who was an excellent cook and I would eat lamb at her house.

    I hate milk, and the very rare time I have a bowl of cereal, I use almond milk.

    Also don't like anything gamey.

    Cauliflowers I hate and anything pickled in vinegar, because I don't like the acid taste of vinegar. Like Chrissy I also don't like anything gamey.

    Hehe Thanks for the memory, @Chrissy Page ! I never saw it on video before, but I remember reading that book to my daughter when she was little... always brought a giggle and an "eeeeew!" :)

    The one food that comes to mind is Okra. My mother used to make it, and it made me gag just looking at it.
    I don't think that I would ever eat any bugs either .. not on purpose!

    Probably one of my biggest problems is that I will eat most anything. Really no foods that I "hate". I won't eat raw or undercooked meat. And, I am not a fan of fish or seafood.

    I'm really the polar opposite of a "finniky eater". Put it out there an I'll eat it. I love extra spicy foods. And, there is little that disagrees with my stomach.

    Oh, on second thought, there IS something I 'hate' the taste of. Beer. Just could never acquire a taste for it and would not drink a sip of it unless in a life-or-death situation.

    @Bonnie Thomas, I don't mind okra if it's cooked in a way that gets rid of the snotty factor. :)

    Terry and Holly, I love cauliflower and use it as a substitute for mashed potatoes.

    Maybe the cauliflower in the UK is different since both of you are from there?

    Again, I will mention Hungary but I couldn't get the kind of celery I was used to here...the stalk. They only had the root and although I liked it, it was slightly a different taste. I am also seeing it more here in stores, before we moved to Hungary I didn't see the root at all here.

    I love stuffed peppers and raw in salads but as child I pretty much hated all vegetables, and over the years grew to like them gradually, cabbage I only started eating a few years ago.

    I never liked the taste of beer until my 50s and I have never overcome my childhood intense dislike for tea.

    I have never liked the taste either, Holly. In my younger days if I drank, it was to relax but all I did was get drunk, lol. It really never affected me well...I went from sleepy to drunk with no feeling good in between.

    There's not much I don't like. In fact I love most of the things you all have listed. Nothing though, would actually make me gag, EXCEPT... runny egg yolks and plain milk!
    Chocolate or any flavor milk, great, but not milk itself.

    Except tongue, which is good I've never had the occasion to eat any unusual meats and aside from moose, which is also good, I've never had occasion to eat any other game.

    Not so popular with me ; BBQ sauces, cashews and I'm sure some other things, but on my intolerable list, only runny egg yolks and milk.

    Those things I've previously mentioned that I dislike , are ones of which I hate the taste so much it would be very uncomfortable to swallow them if I were to have any , but I'm not allergic or intolerant to them...however I am highly intolerant (allergic) to Kiwi fruit and Avocados

    I love avocados! I'm not allergic to anything and have a pretty strong stomach, even if I don't like something I can eat it. I don't get sick to my stomach ever. As bad as my back can be, the opposite is true of my stomach.

    I wonder sometimes why people are allergic to certain things, like avocados.. such a mild fruit. I worked with a lady to was allergic to stone fruits, ( which I'm not crazy about). Those things caused her mouth & lips to go numb and when he swallowed; her throat would get numb so she finally gave them up. This developed suddenly in her adult hood....strange. I guess the avocado is a stone fruit but I love those. Holly do they make you numb?
