The only time I like soda is if it has vodka, whiskey or rum in it.

Right, cilantro! How could I forget! That`s probably the worst one for me... I find it sooo strong and bitter! I feel like it ruins whatevr it touches!


Yeah, same here. That is why I want to like it...because I feel like I have to miss out on so many otherwise delicious foods because there's a little cilantro mixed in. I DO still eat Chipotle though, even though there is cilantro in the rice and salsa. At first it would ruin the burritos for me, but I've gotten used to it. Maybe I will learn to like cilantro.

I am another tempeh hater. I always hate when cookbooks have a TON of tempeh recipes because I have to skip that whole section.

And whoever said mushrooms are staples for vegans in most restaurants- AGREED. Sometimes the only option is a portobello burger. Blegh.

I actually don't think I like large bites of mushrooms like a portobello burger. Too squishy.

Another thing I don't like but am open to trying again: balsamic vinegar. Every time I've tried it it has a strange, cheap fruity flavor like bubblegum (I realize what balsamic is made from, but still!). Maybe every time I tried it was a cheap brand, but there have been too many times... and at restaurants, too! Do I have a strange palate?

Definitely mushrooms for me. I also don't really care for eggplant, but that's so much easier to avoid than mushrooms. Funny thing is, I think I liked them as a kid and then that matured into a pure and utter hatred for them. I have tried many times as an adult, and it's just not happening.

Another one for me is beets. I really want to like them, but I just don't. They taste like straight-up dirt. I tried some fresh beets from the farmer's market this summer, and polled my friends on the best way to prep (consensus: roasted), and I couldn't even get through one bite.

I wish I liked Asparagus, people talk so lovingly of it but I cannot stand the taste. We are not friends.
I am also not friends with beet(root) although I am growing it this year. It just tastes like mud to me, if I grow it I might be tempted to be a bit more patient with it.
Sugarsnap peas are my nemesis, I HATE them. They always look so lovely and fresh and then I eat one and I want to wash my mouth out for an hour.

I openly hate cilantro, olives, mushrooms, daiya, celery, quinoa.

I sometimes like tofu...but only if it is scrambled or well disguised.

I am quite a picky eater so there are a few things I wish I liked but tomatoes would be the biggest. I only like them purreed, I can't stand them raw or if there is skin/seeds. Such an annoying thing to not like cause they are in so many things!

Beetroot....I just can't. I try time and time again, but I just don't enjoy it and end up shoving other food in my mouth with it to try and overpower it.

Also baked beans...but only really the canned variety so I don't count that as a big loss since I can easily make my own.

mushrooms. i see a lot of amazing looking recipes and photos featuring them, but they just don't agree with my taste buds.

Pineapple. I went on a stupid diet once that involved just too much of it. Even a little burns my mouth now. I'm sure the
diet book author would say the fruit acids are working on my tongue. Great.

Olives are rancid little pukeballs. They are the only food (that's vegan) that I will absolutely not eat.

I used to be an equal opportunity olive hater, but now I like the black ones. (The green ones, however, are still rancid little pukeballs.)

Beans. I know they are good for your heart, etc., but I cannot abide them. I only like them smooshed up & served as dip, & then they still give me gastro-issues.

I've just remembered something else that's fairly major - lettuce (unless it's iceberg which is ok). I drive my parents mental because my idea of a perfect salad is just a plate of tomatos!! :D

I just realized that I really hate parsley. I put some in a remolaude (per the recipe) and couldn't figure out what the nasty, overpowering taste was. I've made the sauce a gazillion times but usually don't have fresh parsley but it ruined the entire thing. Then I realized why I never has parsley around. It's gross.

same here.

I'm not crazy for beets but I'll force myself to eat them if they're there.

Cilantro: it's in everything and I want so much to like it. It even looks pretty. But I'm certain this is what the devil's scrotum tastes like.

Raisins: Can't get past the texture - too much like bugs.

Coconut: Can't stand it! I like the smell in suntan lotion and hair products. It reminds me of beaches and outdoor swimming pools. But as a food? Nah.

Corn: such a pretty yellow. And corn on the cob slathered in margarine how can this be anything but delicious? I keep trying it, and I keep hating it. This one makes me a bit sad.

Olives: Olive oil - the best. Olives not so much.

anise: best way to ruin a good soup.

Cumin: so tasty if it's already in something, but I can't cook with it. As someone else mentioned it smells like the worst BO ever to me.

Red Pepper: Why can't I like this? Green pepper - awesome. Red Pepper: nasty!

Ooh, I am loving this thread. I'm glad it got revived!

For me it's beets and chard at the top of the list. Ugh. I tried so hard and for so long with chard, and then I took a step back and said, hey, I like almost every other kind of green and eat tons. It's ok if I don't like chard! It just tastes like dirty dirt to me and ruins any meal it's in. Same for beets. I haven't given up on them yet, I keep hoping that one of these days I'll have something full of beets and join the beets are delicious bandwagon. But until then, ugh. Like dirt. Once I had an amazing shaved baby beet salad at a fancy restaurant (it was a pre fix meal, I never would have ordered it otherwise), but I suspect I liked it only because of combo of them being mild baby beets and being so thinly shaved. Oh and kiwi! Ugh. I hate kiwi.

Other things I would not eat in the past but have slowly developed a tolerance for - cilantro (in very small doses) & mushrooms (they need to be cooked down well). And into my early twenties I would not eat tomatoes, olives or broccoli, and I love all of those now.

Also - whoever mentioned their kid calling seltzer "spicy water" - one of the kids I used to babysit for called it that! I'd never heard anyone else mention that till now.

Cilantro. They put that shiitake in everything I like. Thai, Indian, Mexican, Vietnamese, EVERYTHING. If I get the tiniest little piece of it in my food, suddenly I have the overwhelming taste of soap in my mouth. Not fun.


Same. My life would be easier if I liked cilantro, especially since Indian food is my favorite. Just last night I had a total hissyfit because I got some mexican food ] to-go and they put cilantro on everything.
