I've never been a big milk drinker, but lately, I've been trying to eat more fiber in the form of cereal. Vanilla soy milk is what I prefer. Tried Almond milk, and it tastes good, but it doesn't have enough protein.

Sprouts don't have to taste foul. Most of the time, people over-cook them, that's why.

It shouldn't be, not the commercial brand like Fage, the "Total" brand. It's creamy and mild and not a hint of bitterness.

Locally made feta should be just as good, because dairy smallholders depend on high quality production. At worst, cheap, unbranded feta bought from delis is often way too salty. If feta was always like that, it would be long out of production by now.

I dont like: oysters, some seaweed.

I can't get over what it is to try it: balut

My opinion on Boiled peanuts: They are ok but roasted are better.

I agree!

I cannot stand:

-Black licorice
-Dates (I replace them with raisins in recipes)
-Roasted peanuts (love peanut butter and can even stomach a few boiled peanuts now and then--feel and taste like black eyed peas to me)
-Oysters
-Ricotta

Some things I have never tried and have no desire to try are escargot, mountain oysters, caviar, kidneys, and tripe.

I'm "wrong" to not like Feta, and think it's nasty and bitter?

I like tripe, I can't understand why you don't.

Point made, I hope.

There are few foods available to me in day to day life that I dislike (and that includes my few European and Asian travels, and friends who were from those areas and made foods that many of my U.S. friends wouldn't eat). Bugs, durian, stinky tofu aside, these are things I haven't been pressed to try and wouldn't care to. I'm not one of those people who gags and makes a fuss when I don't like something, as a general rule, I can eat things I don't like. And my few dislikes are:

Corn meal. Corn bread, tamales, sckanze, polenta. I love, and I do mean love, corn, but for some reason am not crazy about corn bread/mush/grits in its many forms. Again, I can eat it, just don't like it.

Milk. Again, I like every form of milk I've ever had, just not a glass of milk. Go figger. Seriously, when I was a child my friends' mothers and mother's friends would give me no end of grief because I simply didn't want to drink milk, and could live forever without breakfast cereal. They'd tell me I'd better drink my milk or I wouldn't grow strong and tall. At 55 I'm 5'9" and show absolutely no signs of bone loss.

There are a few things I don't care for in certain preparations, it is usually a texture thing. But very little that I dislike actively.
