Just the thought of hotdogs, frankfurters and all those German wursts makes me go green.
Instant whip-type desserts (add powder to milk, stir and leave to thicken), jelly, tinned mandarines, trifle... In fact, all the things I was forced to eat as a kid and now don't have to. Oh the torments of having to swallow poached egg on toast or shoulder of lamb.

It's a dried sausage snack. Tends to be very greasy, but they do have a unique taste. Currently supplies are getting low since their factory blew up. They will be out of production for at least 1 more month.

I have to admit to enjoying one occasionally.

I used to like shrimp, quite alot. But now, unless it's breaded and fried, I really don't like it anymore. I think it's a texture thing. I love shrimp burgers, though!! ha!

I liked them too, and then I got pregnant! I couldn't deal with the
smell of ANY seafood or shellfish with my first and with my second I
camped over the commode for the first 20 weeks and couldn't stand
the smell of ANYTHING! I recovered my tolerance for pretty much
everything except anything that comes out of the water and now I
just can't do it! my youngest is 3 now and I guess I will never like
the stuff again...

I adored shrimp as a child, then went through probably 30 years as an adult where, tho I didn't hate them, I never ordered them, and didn't eat them when served on a buffet. Now I again love them. Go figure!

Haggis??? Oh dear! that's on my list of 12 things that, having tried, I won't be eating again.

left alone is menudo.
