I also find that cilantro tastes soapy but still like it (in moderation), but that's in spite of the soapy component of the flavor, not because of it. I can still taste the other components of flavor, that are presumably the only part most folks taste, and I like them well enough that I put up with the soapy part.

And raspberries don't taste particularly acidic to me, but I do detect a certain... harshness, I guess? in them. It's not a dealbreaker, but there are definitely other berries I prefer for that reason. Also in fresh peaches, though I'm not sure if it's the same harshness, or two different but related sensations.
