    What foods do you dislike that you realize lots of people really go for?

    I have never cared much for doughnuts... not the heavy ones, not the lighter ones, not the scooped out middles called "donut holes". Doesn’t matter what they’re covered with or rolled in or filled with either. If I lived downwind of a doughnut shop, I’d sue over an air pollution issue. On the other hand if it were a bagel shop or an eclair bakery i’d have long since croaked due to a gluttony issue.

    Source of the inspiration for this thread: finally making good on my threat to spend the spare parts of a whole summer in a hammock reading the rest of the Easy Rawlins mysteries. In the current one, ol’ Ease is temporarily sittin’ in a car with his sometime partner who’s on a stakeout and so of course washin’ down doughnuts with lukewarm coffee...

    Maybe it’s just bad coffee always turned me off the doughnuts that sometimes showed up in the break lounge at work, who knows.

    French Toast.

    Just typing it makes my stomach churn!

    My body has some sort of dislike for breakfast foods (pancakes, waffles, etc) and I do not like these foods well enough to endure throwing it up afterwards.

    I can eat about 2 pancakes before getting sick. French Toast…no friggin' way!

    Sushi, just vile.
    Hot dogs are the worst kind of “meat” one can put in their mouth.

    Those two make me throw up.

    Post deleted due to not being allowed to have an opinion on the taste of Brussels sprouts :/

    I dislike the idea of raw fish. I say I like sushi... but [ducks to avoid being hit] what I mean by that is ... wait for it... California roll. Or just the rice and avocado rolled up with nori, I make that at home sometimes.

    American hot dogs... I draw the line before them. I like bratwurst though and can be talked into eating assorted other kinds of sausage now and then.

    Fried clams: they were one of the staples down at the boardwalks of Coney Island when I was new to NYC and sampling all the culinary adventures during a summer spent in Brooklyn with a friend from college. Tried those things once and decided you could easily dip rubber bands in egg and breadcrumbs and pass them off as fried clams too. :eek: No thanks!

    Somehow I have managed to escape that experience. Plan to keep on keepin' on escaping it.

    I’m very funny with meat - sliced sandwich/ luncheon meats are absolutely vile imo, even the ‘special’ expensive ones. Generally speaking I will only eat meat which we buy from local farm shops and we know pretty much how it’s been reared. I also find I am increasingly not eating meats other than chicken apart from now and again or on special occasions.

    In common with @LizKat, I dislike doughnuts, and I never could understand why bagels were popular, either.

    However, I adore sushi.

    Not a fan of ice-cream either.

    Because it's BBQ season 'Merica, I'm gonna go with hot dogs. *shudder* In Old Country, we don't eat THAT part of dog.:D

    In Old Country, it would call balut the popular delicacy I can't stomach. It give me heebies jeebies watching my countrymen slurping 'em down, dozens in one sitting.

    Guacamole/ Avacado.

    Also dislike seafood in general.


    Growing up in Hawaii it was definitely spam.

    Intresting, all crepes? I only ask because it’s such a versatile food, can be a dessert or a fruit packed breakfast.

    Love eggs.

    Boiled, poached, fried, scrambled....

    But I am not a fan of barbecued meat; in my experience it is usually tough and dry.

    And I detest milk chocolate.

    Ah. So not "be all it can be"... more like "be something definite so I know what it is when I buy it."
