Some, like durian, I have never had the pleasure to try.
I was surprised there wasn't more feedback defending boiled peanuts. Mention them at a party here in the south, and it seems more people like them than not. Maybe it's what you grow up with. For me the over salted soggy/chewy sort of stale like texture is a turnoff. Maybe it's just the over saltiness. When I was young I loved Fritos and the like. Now it's just a mouthful of salt. Same for KFC. Love the crunch but can't stand so much salt.

I don't like pancakes either MA, although French Toast is fine.

Are boiled peanuts eaten with the shell? Doesn't matter really, as I don't like peanuts, or peanut butter. Ick.

I don't like bananas either, or bing cherries (the red ones).

I don't like most beans, lima beans are out of the question.

Feta cheese is nasty and bitter.

Chocolate is highly over rated, it doesn't do much for me.

Interesting thread!!

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

There are foods that I don't like, and there are foods that I avoid for a reason other than taste.

Foods that I don't LIKE:

Lima Beans (I think I was born with an aversion to them!)
Cilantro (old sweat socks)
Black eyed peas (Just a big "yuck!")
Chicken Gizzards (too tough and texture is like all cartilage)
Boiled cabbage (stinky!)

I'm also part of the apparently 'small' group that likes most everything. I confess to not being wild about foie gras or sweetbreads but would eat them if part of a pre-fixe meal for example, brains I'd have to think hard about!
I understand once you get past the smell, durian is terrif, so would be open to trying it if maybe I had a clothespin handy!

Brains are easier to eat than order.They are great but I have trouble when it comes time to order them.

I have tried Durian;fresh, in treats, and ice cream....Still YUK!
Just be yourself! Everyone else is taken.

,MSC. Something I regret about myself is that I don't like farm fresh brown eggs. They're so overwhelmingly rich it seems to me. I want to like them but I prefer the more tasteless white eggs in the grocery stores. Same with milk...I don't drink milk by itself but still I prefer skim over whole...well, now I've crossed over to almond milk since my little vegan-yogateacher-esthetician-joggingfool-wholefoodsaholic-wheatgrassdrinkin' beautiful daughter has moved back home for awhile. She's starting to rub off on me....darn...and living in sin was so much fun

I can't stand creamed corn or tofu. Funny though, I put creamed corn in my corn bread batter.

Okra unless it is pickled. Tried snake, that was a big yuck. I almost forgot, snails, no way I'll eat them again. I honestly will eat most anything if it is prepared properly.

Holy Cow pie! Brussel Sprouts it is! I have tried cooking those little balls of rotten cabbage every way imaginable and I still can't stand 'em. I used to hate beets as well, since I was a kid, but I found out, if I cook the red part separate, peel them and cut them up, then sauté them with the tops in lots of butter, they are really good. I hate Harvard beets though!
