While I eat darn near ever'thing....and usually like it, taste is one of the most subjective things in all the world. I recommend keeping an open mind about things you want to try and revisit the things you don't like from time to time.
One never knows.....Something you hated last year may turn out to be a tasty treat now or down the road.

Or not!!

OOH - great thread!

Oysters. Love clams and mussels, hate oysters.

Lima Beans, turnips, parsnips, okra - Blech!

Green pepper - ruins everything it touches in my book.

Any la dente vegetable

Dr. Pepper

Anything sweet in the morning - except for sugar in my coffee.

I've had polenta, but never grits. Are they one and the same? If so, I'd probably like them.

Never could understand peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Banana and bread together - yuk.

Oh, yeah, peanut butter. I don't mind peanut butter cups but never put the real stuff on ANYTHING! Again, it is a texture thing.

Most of what I don't like (but feel I should) is a matter of texture not taste. The big exception on that one is liver. Yuk. Will never have a taste for that one, ever!

I love seafood, but again have to stay away from most shellfish such as oysters, clams, mussells, because of the texture. Depending on how they are cooked (or not) I can eat scallops and love them!

The things I really don't like are liver, okra and lima beans. And, I have never really "wanted" to like them.

The only thing that comes to mind is Cilantro... It seems to be in so many recipes, but I can't stand it in salsa. I have tried so many times, but it tastes like soap to me. Sorry for those that love the herb.

Raw oysters & undercooked eggs do it for me. While I enjoy both well-cooked, undercooked is just a gag-fest for me. It's not a taste issue, but rather a texture one. Just can't handle it. And I eat or will at least try pretty much anything & everything within reason.

At this time, the only food item that I reject re: taste would be beef &/or calves liver. I love chicken liver & have even enjoyed pork liver, but beef/calves liver I've never been able to warm up to. Once, & only once, was I able to choke it down, & that was when my mother served it in a wine/mushroom/cream sauce. But even that wouldn't make me want to cook it myself.

Beets induce projectile vomiting for me. Really. My dad tried to make me eat them as a kid. Once.

Other than that, I like just about everything on this list of dislikes -- except egg salad, which I can stomach if I have to, and liver or any other "variety" meat. Bleh!

Try adding a drained can of salt free corn to the creamed corn. YUM

Stuff I want to like, but don't

Shrimp, while I don't really care for the taste, it is the texture that really turns me against it.
