Food(s) you will not eat for the life of you

Decided to start this thread just for fun so comment down below food(s) you will not eat for the life of you.

Mine are: broccoli and cauliflower in any form. Yes, I'm like a 6 year old.

Oysters. Or clams. It's the texture. Yech.

I eat most things, particular fondness for livers, kidneys etc. have eaten lambs brains. Love oysters.

But there is a sort of savoury porridge my mother in law makes, with chicken. It tastes okay, it's just the consistancy which gets me. Can't eat it.

That and Spouts.

I'll eat almost anything at least once, including everything mentioned so far. However, I'm certain I will never want to eat casu marzu.

Never say never. I got a concussion from an accident once and it changed my tastebuds. My family was shocked that I started eating things I would have never touched before.

Then I began global travel and found so many wonderful things to eat that I'd never known before.

But I can say right now that the main thing I won't eat is raw fish. You-shi eat the su-shi. Not me! I'm not a fan of couscous or liver either.

I grew up detesting Brussels Sprouts, horrible horrible things.

But I always keep trying things as ya' never know.

Sure enough, I've now had two Brussels Sprouts dishes that I thought were fantastic, not just ok or passable, but fantastic.

I still can't say I look forward to seeing them on a menu but I don't have strong negative reactions anymore if they are present and will try them again.

(won't eat it again) Chinese hot pot and panettone.

In general, mayonnaise and stewed raisins (separately...or together) are unapproachable. But I've eaten my way through much of Noah's Ark, and I'll continue to do so.

A couple of Nordic dishes I don't think I'll ever try: Surströmming and Hákarl

Two different textures in my book. I agree with you on oysters but I love clams.

My two: canned peas and lima beans in any form.
