Foods (seemingly) everyone likes but you

Inspired by the thread discussing what smells good but can't be eaten.

Many people responded that one such food was coffee. Me, too. I find it interesting considering that coffee is one of the most abundant products available.

I began to think of other foods and beverages that are exceedingly popular in the US that I really don't like.
Wading through the web, there is clickbait that I often see that appears to be banana slices in a pot of boiling water, and that put me back on that train of thought. I really don't care for bananas; other than people who are allergic to them, I don't know anyone who doesn't like them.
Onions are another. I have some sort of intolerance for them; they make my mouth tingle and upset my stomach. Every time I eat a meal prepared by others I need to ask if onions are in the food. Some people are shocked that anyone could dislike onions.

Got any foods that you don't eat, making you stand out from the crowd?

Thank god it's not just me.

Also, crisps (potato chips) and nuts. Just seem rather pointless.

Oh, and chocolate brownies. Just dense stodge to me - give me a light, fluffy cake any day.

Couple more:

Fresh tomatoes, usually. We had a huge garden growing up, and all the tomatoes we ate were either canned by mom or fresh from the garden. Pick them early in the day before it got too hot to work in the garden, chill them in the fridge, slice them, sprinkle on some salt and eat. Wonderful. Now that I don't have a garden, and few of my friends do either, fresh tomatoes, whether at someone's home or a restaurant are terrible. Not only do they not taste good, they turn my stomach. So they get picked out of salads and left off sandwiches.

Peppermint. I think this one can be attributed to association. What is the first thing I think of when I smell or taste peppermint? Pepto Bismol, and all the reasons for taking it in the first place.

LOTS of people I know don't like seafood/sushi/oysters/etc in one form or another (more for me!)...as far as what everyone seems to like except me, yeah, my vote is coffee.

Watermelon (or any melon, for that matter)- always hated it
Lobster- ate too much of it ($15 Tuesday dinner specials) so stopped liking it
Sushi- ditto, unless it’s something inventive or rare
Oysters- realized I really only liked the horseradish and Tabasco
Asparagus- smelly pee scares me

- Mayonnaise.

Sight, smell, taste, mouthfeel grosses me out.

I'm supposed to like it because, as some try to get me to rationalize:

"Do you eat eggs?" Sometimes. Hard boiled or fried with hard yoke. Nothing runny: Yuck.

"Vinegar?" In some food preparations, yes.

"Oil?" Olive oil only.

"Lemon juice?" Here and there.

Ultimate logical "gotcha" zinger: "Well, why not mayonnaise?"

- Asparagus: Looks like a virus magnified 1000 X

It seems like most people can't imagine eating a burger or fries without ketchup. Yuck. Ketchup is a vile substance that I don't want anywhere near my food.

And, like others in this thread, coffee and sushi.

I have a friend who will not eat bananas. She'll eat banana bread, canned bananas in fruit cocktail, banana-flavored candy, etc. but the peel and eat variety? Nope. For her, it's a texture thing.

I am not a fan of eggplant, coffee, or ketchup. Lots of people love those things, but not me.

Pasta. Everybody loves it. I don't even like it. I can eat a little of it, to be polite.
Ice cream. People think I am like some kind of hellbeast because I don't like ice cream, but when I connected with members of my birth family, none of them liked it either.

These are just the ones almost everybody likes. Most of the other things on my list are things not well liked by a lot of people and, of course, loved by others. Like liver.

How I like my eggs is on someone else's plate.

Apple pie? I will pass thank you. Cranberry sauce? No I'll just have more stuffing.

Venison is a waste of a good pest deer. Pumpkin anything? Get your bland gourd and unpleasant seasonal spices out of my everything.

There is a whole category of crappy "nostalgia" fast food that everyone in the US seems to love as they were fed it as a kid. But as I didn't grow up here, just tastes like crappy fast food to me. Tater tots and Kraft Mac and cheese are classic examples.

Sloppy joes would be on the list (had no idea what it even was before I moved to the states) but for the fact I don't mind it.

Yes, venison! It has a sweetness that makes me think I'm eating spoiled meat, and it turns my stomach. Aside from that, I don't like the taste or texture.

I love sushi, though. There are so many varieties, I wonder what the uniting factor is for hating it. There's something about the way sushi rice is prepared that I find positively addictive.* I have to have sushi at least once a week -- even if it's just simple inari.

* the vinegar? 'cause I love vinegary foods.

Ooo...that's a good one. The others in this thread I've heard of, but this is literally the first time I heard of anyone not like pasta.That's almost like not liking bread. My wife, for some reason, always assumed I didn't like pasta, because I wouldn't cook it that often, but the truth is, I don't cook it, because I'd eat the whole damned pound package on its own if it were to be left around. Now that I have picky kids under 5 in the house, it's become almost a daily staple, as there are about five foods they enjoy eating. I swear, they started out eating anything and everything, and now settled into the stereotypical "kids menu" diet.

Salmon.

I'm somewhat similar -- enjoy most "banana-ish" products available in temperate Western countries; but have no enthusiasm for fresh bananas plain and simple ("peel and eat", as said). For me, not about texture -- I will eat them plain-and-simple, but don't seek them out: just find their taste faint / insipid / dull.

I gather that this is, in part anyway, to do with happenings now long ago -- I forget the "names of strains" concerned; but, bananas as grown where they grow them, used to have a fuller and more flavoursome taste, than obtains nowadays: some catastrophic disease almost wiped the species out -- in dramatic circumstances, it was possible to save things in the nick of time, by substituting a different strain of banana, unaffected by the disease but markedly less flavour-ful. Banana flavouring for sundry things, has and retains the taste of the all-but-extinct "old type" banana; not so, though, with the fresh fruit.

I've liked ketchup all my life but with in the past year or so, I've been passing it up. Not sure what happened there.

Guacamole.

It's been a few years since I had it, but IIRC, it reminded me if someone had liquefied lawn clippings and told me to put in on perfectly good chips.

If coffee tasted as good as it smelled, it would kick chocolate's ass. Instead, it tastes like chocolate's ass.

I used to love tea, but gave it up because it's too bothersome to make, and it's hard getting decent tea at all, much less decent decaf tea. There are places on the internet, but it seems they're premium teas with prices to match. Screw it.

Bell peppers. There are some cuisines that seem to put them in every dish. I'll eat them but I have never had a dish with bell peppers that wouldn't have tasted better without them.

I eat pretty much everything; oysters, sushi, escargot, carpaccio, etc. I can't think of a single food that I wouldn't eat. That said, I don't like fat. I trim any fat off of my steak prior to cooking, for example.

Now this is a thread I can win.


Cheese (ha! top that!)
Oddly enough, I love pizza, but even that can't be extra cheese or four cheese. Just plain old mozzarella, and a small amount at that.
Try going anywhere that doesn't automatically include cheese in most everything.

Butter
I'll cook with it but as a spread? Oh hellz no. No, I don't want it on my pancakes or my toast. And if we're out to dinner, do NOT use the knife that comes with the bread to spread butter and then use it later to cut yourself another piece, goddammit.

Salad Dressing
I can't think of one that the mere smell of doesn't turn my stomach. I do like salad, though.

Seafood
Anything other than shrimp, lobster or crab is repellent to me, and even then, I won't cook it at home because of the smell.

Avocado: I can eat a little bit if it's in the form of guacamole, but slices of it, or mashed into toast? *gag*

Bananas with any green on them: I looooove a nice speckled banana, but the green ones make me teeth feel funny, aren't sweet and bananas shouldn't crunch.

Mushrooms: Disconcertingly textured, spongy bits of forest floor.

Anything that once lived in water: the smell, the looks, the texture...*shudders*

Peas: I grew up on canned peas, which are from the Devil, but my hatred extends to all peas. Yes, even fresh. No, I won't try them again.

I have some serious texture issues. Anything runny, slimy or overly creamy is just horrifying to me.

Avocados / Guac = texture is awful and the taste is just as bad. Wife loves them, I can't even be in the same room when she's eating them.

Fish = tired many kinds, prepared many ways, can't stand the texture, taste or smell. And it really bugs me when people say, "oh if it's fresh it doesn't smell fishy." Bullshit. It always smells fishy; and that smell is just plain disgusting.

Eggs = the only way I can eat them is scrambled / omelette style. Anything else, including hardboiled makes me gag.

Jello and Pudding = again....texture. I don't like eating things that can move on their own.

Canned cranberry sauce = urp. Fresh, actual cranberries can be enjoyable but that canned, jiggly crap that gets sliced into little discs for T-Day? No thanks.

Heck, I don't even like whipped cream all that much. Watching someone shoot the can directly into their mouth makes me wretch all the time.

How have we gotten this far without mentioning the evil, dreaded cilantro? And it's in everything now, even in Mom & Pop diners! On the cooking shows, the TV chef will put together a wonderful, beautiful, yummy-sounding dish and then ruin it by topping it with "bright, citrusy cilantro." Bright? Citrusy? To some people cilantro tastes like soap. To me it tastes
SPOILER:
the way your mouth tastes after you throw up.

Also, there's a big movement on to get people to cook/fry things in coconut oil. I love coconut, I love the smell of toasted coconut, and I put that wonderful-smelling semi-solid substance on myself after a bath. BUT the smell of it cooking absolutely turns my stomach. And after the dish is cooked, that awful smell/taste remains and renders (appropriate word) the food inedible. Blech.

I do love sushi, coffee, artichokes, bananas, and even canned peas. Not picky about anything else.

I'm the opposite. I can eat a little bit if it's just sliced, but mashed up into guacamole is disgusting.

You eat salad without any dressing? Huh.

I agree with Seafood. Of any type or stripe.

Surprised as others at the poster that doesn't do pasta. That's a new one. I could live on it like another poster said.

Yeah, I forgot that one. I'm not quite as strict as you - I can manage a little dab of sweet/creamy salad dressing if I have to, though I prefer my salad plain - but oil & vinegar dressing makes my tongue curl.

It's not that I don't like sour things - I do - but the combination of vinegar or lemon juice and leafy greens creates a bitter, astringent sensation that is extremely unpleasant.

My son should be in this thread too. He doesn't like bananas, despite having been raised in the tropics so having access to really good ones. And from toddlerhood he did not like pasta. I was the only mother in my cohort who didn't have the option of turning to Kraft macaroni and cheese for a quick kid-friendly meal. (He'd eat it, but only reluctantly, if I dressed it up with pesto, ham, real cheese, and tomatoes, thus missing the entire point - might as well make a good dinner from scratch if you have to go through that extra work.)

At age 21, he has allowed Asian pasta into his life - both good Japanese ramen bowls and cheap Indomie pass his personal taste test. But god forbid he should have to eat Western pasta like spaghetti or lassagna. No way. Yeah, he's always been a weird kid.

49 posts so far and this is the only one I agree with. Even then it’s just large chunks of fat, little bits like on a pork loin chop are no big deal.

I used to have a decent number of things I wouldn’t eat, but the older I get, the more that list dwindles. Sitting here right now, I can’t think of anything I wouldn’t eat besides a big hunk of fat.

Most people don't eat large chunks of fat, though. Or am I living in an alternate universe where everybody loves fat? I mean, isn't that why chicken breast and tasteless meat like that is king here in the US? Because everyone hates fat?

All fats are not equal. The buttery fat you get from a ribeye is MUCH tastier than the rubbery fat you get from a top round for example.

No, it's because Americans like their food very bland. They love fat.

Milk.

I like milkshakes, many cheeses, yogurt (especially Greek yogurt--yum!), but I can't stand drinking plain, unadorned milk. Ick.

Even as a kid, I would turn down milk and cookies, if it meant I had to drink the milk. And breakfast cereal dry can be OK, but the minute milk touches it, it becomes disgusting.

Peas. Disgusting, whether fresh, frozen, or canned, mushy or whole.

Beans--the legume type. I'm OK with green beans. Or wax beans, though I can't see the point, as they taste like...wax.

I won't eat sushi, but that's because some food scientists ruined it for me by discussing parasites thereof. I'd had it once before that and liked it.

And slightly off-topic, I'm also grossed out by yellow cheese on pizza (like American, cheddar) and, of course, pizza with pineapple and ham on it. Abominations. Why they're popular, I'll never know.

Also, catsup on a hot dog is nauseating, but that's cultural. Almost everyone from Chicago knows better than to put catsup on a dog.

Avocado- why in hell is this even considered food? Satan's pus filled scrotum
Ketchup-nasty corn syrup with "tomato" added, Satan's semen
Green olives-again, why in hell are these disgusting things considered food? Satan's pickled testicles
Coffee from starbucks or starbucks wanna be clones-why are you serving me over heated and burned coffee you let sit on a hot burner all day yesterday in a glass pot at very over inflated prices? Convenience stores, for the most part have better coffee. Starbucks style coffee is Satan's ass juice after a hard night of drinking and eating pickled eggs with sauerkraut

All these "foods" are punishments inflicted upon us by an angry vengeful god for some sin committed by humanity that was so egregious that it has slipped from the collective memory.

Ok, maybe that was a bit over the top, but not much.

I'm not a fan of organ meats, weird/unusual body parts, like liver, brians, intestines, testicles, tongue and penis. Count me out for insects as well.

I like everything else and all styles of cuisine from around the world, as my waistline will attest to.
