Food Smells You Cannot Stand...
I worked bakeries for a number of years and have not worked in one for at least 20 years now. I still cannot stand the smell of maple iced donuts, the smell just gags me.

So, what smells get to you?

The whiff of grease I smell from some restaurants.

I can taste it. Ugh

Burnt toast comes immediately to mind.

Spaghetti O's & over-ripe bananas. :sick::sick::sick::sick:

durian, cooking cauliflower, and most canned cat food.

Fish, and most seafood. I cannot understand how people can eat it with the way it smells. Don't tell me that it's because it isn't fresh, because even very fresh, cold water fish has a distinct smell. Our big farmer's market has an onsite seafood restaurant and the smell of fish and grease makes me a bit queazy, I usually stay away from that part.

I have to agree with cooking cauliflower.

I am not fond of the way seafood smells either, but that doesn't stop me from eating it :yum: It doesn't smell fishy after it's been cooked.

Probably cooked cabbage. It's one food I never ate as a kid because the house would reak of it... usually accompanied with corned beef, another not-too-fond smell. I can't say I like the way it smells today either, but that doesn't stop me from eating it :rolleyes:

How about braunscheiger? Does anyone really like the smell of braunschweiger? That's one food I never liked the smell of, but still liked, even as a kid.

Any canned wet pet food. I can't even stand to look at it. With each of my pregnancies it was bacon. I also can't stand the sulphur smell inside an overcooked hard boiled egg. :angel:

Cauliflower, brussels sprouts, cabbage, overcooked broccoli. If I can smell broccoli, it's over cooked and I want nothing to do with it. Sauerkraut.

Raw chicken. I have to fight not gagging when I prep chicken and sometimes I have to get hubby to rinse it for me or cut it up for me. Liver smells gross. I make hubby brush before I'll kiss him if he's eaten some (for his benefit as much as mine. Who wants their spouse to gag after kissing them?). Fish and seafood is never a like, but isn't always a can't stand. Salt smells yucky and so does sugar. Can't handle the smell of marjoram.

Other than that, the smells that get to me fluctuate. Sometimes I like the smell of raw beef or cooking meat, other times I feel sick when I smell it. Broccoli is fine some days and not others. Same with a lot of other foods. Eggs, ham, bacon, asparagus, milk, popcorn (although microwave popcorn usually smells off to me), cucumbers, oranges, watermelon... The list goes on. They taste fine once they are on my plate and ready to eat though.
