What foods do you hate/won't eat?

Inspired by the other thread. I hate liver of any kind. I'm not keen on Lima beans either.

What I unkindly call offal: tripe, organs, head cheese, scrapple, blood sausage, and I've always hated Brussels sprouts (they grow in the field next to my house and stink to high heaven after they've harvested). I think if I had them properly prepared, I could deal.

offal
liver
I have really tried to eat liver prepared different ways. I cannot seem to swallow it. Even when Mom would dice it up in her stuffing it had to practically be purred for me to get it down. Once we were eating at Shoney's on a road trip. The buffett had this beef dish that looked like roast beef in an onion gravy. Took one bite, spit it out and passed it to hubby. Offal just seems awful! Perhaps if no one told me I might eat it. Never had it but just the thought is enough to turn my stomach.

I'll eat anything on this planet except fermented soybeans. Just the smell of this food gags me.

I can't stomach nato either, roadfix.

I won't eat anything blue, and when it comes to icing I won't eat blue, green, red or black icing. Blech. Especially red. Too bitter.

Most other foods that I won't eat are only because they give me GI distress. I'm pretty good about trying everything at least once. I've watched Zimmern and usually say, "Yeah. I'd try that." I'd draw the line at rotting meat, though. The smell makes me gag.

Liver, in any way, shape or form. Asparagus, Brussel Sprouts. Mushrooms-I've seen where they grow. Edame-tried it for the first, and last time recently. Squid (aka Calamari), organ meats, tongue.

I'm sure there are more,but this is off the top of my head.

Have tried and will not eat again: Chit'lins (and Andouillettes); cottage cheese; pepperoni sausage; halvah; Haggis; rutabaga; durian; lutefisk; tofu (tempeh and seitan); raisins (except in Haagen Dazs Rum Raisin Ice Cream );

of course, if it's a matter of life and death, all bets are off.

I loved Brussell Sprouts as a kid, and still do. My mom did not cook them ever. I would eat them at a friend's house. His mom would call me and tell me she cooked them, always with cheese sauce. I now cut them in half. Pour olive oil, salt and pepper on them and put them under the broiler for about 10 minutes, or add them under a racked baked chicken or pork loin right before it is done. They have a great nutty flavor when done this way.

brains, cottage cheese, kidneys, tongue, don't like to look at whole fish on a plate, rice pudding..will cook with buttermilk... but will not drink it. I guess, this means I could eat at just about anyone's house.

I eat everything that Andy doesn't eat.

I'm sure a lot of food dislikes are simply psychological.
