Same for KFC. Love the crunch but can't stand so much salt.
In my opinion boiled peanuts are over rated. But thats coming from a Jersey boy living in the south.

My most unfavoritest food is lima beans. You can't put enough bacon on them to get me to like them and I'll eat pretty much anything that's scratch made and smaller than my head.

Really can't handle liver. I have tried to eat it. It's both a taste and texture thing. It is just chocked full of vitamins and while my head knows that I just can't get it past my taste buds.

Green limas. I'll eat haggis, uni, anything pickled, (would try durian) but have never liked green lima beans.

Omg we're pretty much alike! I too hate durian and cheese. Especially cheese. I can smell that awful odour from behind my nose everytime I chew on one. except for 'cooked' cheese such as pizza.

If lima beans are "old," or overgrown, they are dry and woody. I don't like them then at all, but if they are picked young and cooked the same day, they are wonderful. When I was a kid I used to pick and shell them on my aunt's farm, and she would cook them in the most delicious and ethereal cream sauce. I can still see, smell and taste them. And yes, often when I buy them now, I am disappointed by the texture, because they are not as young and fresh as I think they should be.

LIVER ... I've tried chicken and beef livers prepared many ways throughout my life ... it's probably the only food I really dislike. As a child my mother would say "just take one bite"...
