    Malt (I suspect this is why I hate beer, because I ate a cereal I hated once - and it had malt in it aswell)
    Soy sauce (I find the taste and smell of Soy sauce so revolting that I literally feel like vomiting)
    Corn (The yellow thing they make popcorn out of, mysteriously though - I love popcorn! But corn in its base form tastes badly)

    Name the top 3 foods, drinks or whatever - in which you find the taste repulsive!

    That's a bit difficult - one of my top horribles is coriander, but I've discovered that the thing I don't like is also present in caraway and dozens of related others.

    Coriander. & caraway, cumin, fenugreek, tarragon, dill, fennel, and a couple of dozen more.
    Brie & camembert. I don't eat dirty old socks so I don't see why I should eat these.
    White chocolate. Who thought this was a good idea? It's just a way of making money from the wastes of chocolate production and lots (and lots) of sugar.

    Cream Soda - I remember the sickly sweet taste of this bright red beverage from when I was a teenager. Repulsive! Every time I change the price label on that product I almost gag.
    Milk - I enjoy cream in my coffee, whipping cream on desserts but I do not like milk as a beverage.
    Lima Beans - Another one from my childhood. I absolutely hated those large, mealy beans and would pick them out of my soup.

    Raw eggs- Anything made from them. Sour cream, ranch, mayo. Why do people like eating raw eggs? gross
    Onions - seriously, no.
    Raw...anything that isn't veggies. Whoever enjoys this, deserves salmonella. cook my food!

    1) Beetroot. Oh my goodness, I just can't eat it.
    2) Bean salads (curry bean, three bean, etc). Baked beans are ok.
    3) Some Vegan foods. I haven't tried any yet, but looking at some of the new age type vegan foods people are eating, I just can't imagine enjoying much of it.

    Generally I eat almost anything.

    Edit:4) Oh, and I will never try caviare. Raw fish eggs? Really?

    I have to think some of these choices are due to eating canned or frozen food. Freshly picked sweet corn, Brussels sprouts, green beans or lima beans.... it doesn't get any better than that.

    Love caviar. But bean salads, No! Uuurggh. And I really don't like those pasta "salads" either. Though I can scoff down as much potato salad as anyone else.

    Beetroot! Clearly you're not Australian. Beetroot is compulsory in a "proper" hamburger. Though come to think of it, the Australian habit of sticking pineapple in anything and everything is pretty gross.

    And Harold's right about freshly picked corn. Food of the gods. If you grow your own, you can eat it literally fresh-picked.

    Beans are definitely out....gag reflex...get me a respirator, get me an inhaler
    Processed meats....I want to hurl, barf bag please
    Hot spices...... Eating should not include self-inflicted torture, I like to taste what I eat and not fire off blue darts an hour later

    1) Celery (minging stuff)
    2) butter/margarine (can't stand it, maybe more texture related than flavour though)
    3) Marmite (just no!)

    I'm hard-pressed to find things I don't like.

    1) Beets. Only had them once when I was a kid (thanks, mom) so my tastes may have changed since then. Still, when my family gets together and my parents have beets, I take up a defensive posture.
    2) Lobster. I don't know if it is the taste or the fact that I don't want the puffed up assflesh of a sea-floor dwelling armored pseudo-spider.
    3) Licorice. Oddly enough, I put fennel in my sausage. It's mostly just the candy I can't tolerate. Kind of goes for cinnamon as well. I love the spice, but Red Hots are horrible.

    1. Mushrooms. They have an unpleasant taste so I do not eat them, whether they are in vol-au-vent (chicken ragout with i.a. mushrooms) or prepared as soup.
    2. Blue mussels (which is kind of embarrassing, as blue mussels with fries and mayonnaise is seen as the national dish, namely moules-frites).
    3. Carlsberg beer (not the UK version). Because it is just gross.

    I have no sense of smell so my sense of taste is quite limited.
    I tend to put foods together in ways that confuse other people because they rely on scent instead of just tastebuds for flavour information.
    For example, onions, garlic and cabbage all taste pretty much the same to me.
    Beef tastes just like lamb.

    I notice bitter flavours and things like that a lot more because of the lack of smell.
    A lot of synthetic foods have strange of flavours in them that I notice as bitter or oily or cloyingly sweet.

    Over ripe cucumbers have an incredibly raunchy bitterness that just sticks on the back of the throat and lingers as an aftertaste for a long time.
    Some orange drinks have a weird kind of smoothness that reminds me of antifreeze (tasted once by accident when fixing a car)
    There is a strange kind of bittersweet from soybeans when they are made into soymilk drinks.

    But the worst are things that are just simply bland.
    Since I only taste salty, sweet, bitter, sour, hot like pepper, and umami1 if something relies for all of its flavour on a scent it is likely artificial, so to me blandness is bad.

    Brie. Smells bad, taste even worse, chemically like something I should be cleaning the John with rather than eating.

    Liquorish. Odd lingering bitter taste but worst of all ...more a dislike the teeth sticky texture than anything else--don't like gummy bears, fruit rolls either for same reason.

    Never cared for Kimchee very much.

    Similar to dan, my sense of smell has diminished a lot over the the past decade so there's a lot of foods that I might not dislike--but its more like eating tasteless cardboard.

    Anything with artificial sweetener. Horrible aftertaste.
    Frozen prepared foods, like frozen dinners. Who buys all that crap in the frozen food section?
    About the only real food I can think of that I don't like is kefir, and I only tried that once. It may have been a bad batch.

    At times, but I prefer not to (someone has to be the DD, though). Although liquor is disgusting, I can tolerate it when I mix it with other things.

    It can be advantageous to be the DD, ensuring that the ladies get home safely. One moves up on their radar through trust and studies show that many relationships are based on the propinquity effect.

    Propinquity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Which reminds me that I dislike Rye & Ginger ale to this day. Something to do with being a late teen, kneeling under a willow in the rain, while the contents of my stomach communed with nature.

    I see. There is a vast variety of liquors and I prefer some of them pure(*), whilst others taste better with e.g. orange juice (especially exotic liquors).


    (*) Whether or not adding ice cubes to one's whiskey should be punished with capital punishment, is up to serious debate.

    You'd have to put a lot more than an ice cube in it for me to drink it!

    There are very few things I won't eat (we're talking food here now). I even love Marmite on toast. I just wish it wasn't so expensive here in the states -- shipping fees and all.

    I guess I am a heathen then. Can't sip whiskey or whisky or brandy just like that. I might take a shot of something, but that's it. I usually mix with coke.

    Love beer, but prefer draught when I can get it. Black Label draught.


    There are a lot of foods I wouldn't necessarily make myself, but would eat out of politeness if someone served it to me, like peas, carrots, etc.


    But one thing I did find out is that these are all first world problems. I worked in Swaziland for 6 months at one time and ate everything I was served, because there wasn't a lot of it. Things like Achaar and soya mince. Bleh. The workers used to bring pap and home-grown spinach to work for lunch and I used to envy them. I got paid around the equivalent of $95 a month back then. It was character building.

    I swore to never ever drink Miller beer again as long as I lived. And I don't like saison beers. Other than those I love almost all beer. I'm home brewing a "Dead Guy" clone right now. Be ready for bottles in a couple of days.
    I really don't like soggy textures. But I will eat most raw slimy ocean stuff available. The presence of tentacles tends to intrigue my palate.
    Instead of chips or other starchy snacks I snack on dark green leafy spring mixes. And I prefer dark grainy breads to process whites.
    I love bacon. I could eat a whole pig and then die.
    Someday I would like to go to a restaurant in a foreign country and randomly point at some block of incomprehensible text on the menu, and then eat whatever it is they bring out.

    1. Gin. It makes me sick just to remember that day I got utterly pissed on it as a teenager.
    2. Rabbit. The mere thought of a skinned rabbit... What a painful thing to bite into. Poor sod. I wouldn't eat cat either.

    1. Green peppers. Even a little in any dish will make it inedible.
    2. Scotch. I got very sick from drinking scotch years ago, and to this day, I can't touch the stuff.
    3. Tequila. Same as the scotch.

    I wouldn't be too sure. For example, I was raised on a farm, and the green beans we had were always fresh from our own garden, but I never developed a taste for them. On the other hand, I love one of the most maligned green vegetables: Broccoli.

    I'm the same with cider, the first time I got puking drunk was on cider1, now even the smell of it if one of my friends in the pub is drinking it is enough to make me feel ill.

    1. Look, I was 17 and was celebrating passing my university entrance exam/interview. I didn't know any better.

    The same thing happened to me around that age but with vodka. I had about seven too many shots lol. It was a bad, bad night (and next day). My friend had the same experience that night, except he had the pleasure of sleeping in my vomit

    Don't know how it's got that reputation. I know one of my kids shocked one of her host families when they were touring America with the choir. Mother offered seconds at the dinner table, and the only thing kid wanted was more broccoli. At which point, the hostess admitted that she'd only served it because it's the sort of thing you should serve. The family never ate it.

    Japanese half-fermented slimy soybeans for breakfast, generally called "natto" or cognates. I will eat just about anything else Japanese (and love uni and hugu) but this stuff I simply cannot face in the morning.
    The Asian/Chinese bean dissolved in milk that they substitute for chocolate milk.
    Large squash i.e. spaghetti or acorn squash.
    Liver from no matter what animal and no matter how prepared, with the two exceptions of liverwurst/braunschweiger, and pate.

    These are the only foods I have not been able to face and have hated, despite being persuaded by well-meaning persons to "try them again, it will be better this time."

    Broccoli steamed for 3 minutes can be topped with any of various sharp sauces and/or cheeses and is all good. Sweet sauces are contraindicated; the Chinese violate this principle with broccoli beef but I have never seen any other cuisine skillful enough to handle a sweet sauce with broccoli.

    The bad reputation of broccoli is often due to overcooking, which causes the healthy sulfur compounds in the kale vegetable to recombine and make stinky hydrosulfur compounds. Steam for 3 minutes; that's how to make broccoli.

    I have prejudices about the other kale vegetables; for example cooking cauliflower should be punished by impalement and subsequent hanging. And cabbage goes in last. And Brussels Sprouts are like raviolis and must be carefully boiled quickly.

    Read a piece on cooking brassicas by one of Australia's best known chefs. She mentions the sulphur problem and says that it's worsened by cooking in too little water even if it's not cooked for too long.

    Her solution is to use a very large pot of rapidly boiling water and to chuck the veg in for very few minutes. The compounds released are extracted and diluted into the water and the veg is neither soggy nor smelly as a result. I happen to like cauliflower so I'm not troubled. But if anyone in the family disliked it, this is the approach I'd use.

    Marmite is made from yeast extract, a by-product of beer brewing. Other similar products include the Australian Vegemite, the Swiss Cenovis and the German Vitam-R.
    Initially, Marmite was popular with vegetarians as a meat-free alternative to beef extract products such as Bovril, which were popular in the late 19th and early 20th century.[citation needed]
    Marmite is traditionally eaten as a savoury spread on bread, toast, savoury biscuits or crackers, and other similar baked products. Owing to its concentrated taste it is usually spread thinly with butter or margarine.[12] Marmite can also be made into a savoury hot drink by adding one teaspoon to a mug of hot water much like Bovril.
    Marmite is paired with cheese, such as in a Cheese Sandwich, and has been used as an additional flavouring in Mini Cheddars, a cheese-flavoured biscuit snack. Similarly, it has been used by Walkers Crisps for a special-edition flavour; is sold as a flavouring on rice cakes; and Marmite Biscuits. Starbucks in the UK has a cheese and Marmite Panini on their menu.[13]
    In New Zealand, Sanitarium, the NZ Marmite company, recommends spreading it on bread with potato crisps added to make a "Marmite and Chippie" sandwich.[14] In Singapore and Malaysia, Marmite is popularly added to plain rice congee to give it a strong, salty flavour. In Malaysia, Marmite has been used for cooking with chicken, prawns or crab.
    In 2003, the Absolute Press published Paul Hartley's The Marmite Cookbook, containing recipes and suggestions on how to blend Marmite with other foodstuffs. In August 2006, as part of the launch of squeezy Marmite, celebrity chef Gary Rhodes created a dessert consisting of coffee ice cream topped with chocolate sauce with a dash of Marmite.[15]
    We sell Marmite in our grocery store. It is quite popular with the British and European people.

    This is very, very close to the fast steaming; the only difference is the food is in a pot-on-top with holes underneath for the steam to come through. The key point is to just steam it, or to blanch it. Fast, as you say "for a very few minutes." You'll get much the same results.

    I've had both marmite and vegemite. I wouldn't choose either one given most other things to eat on bread, but it's not like eating bugs or something nasty. If I had eaten them a lot as a kid I'd probably like them.

    3) Licorice. Oddly enough, I put fennel in my sausage. It's mostly just the candy I can't tolerate. Kind of goes for cinnamon as well. I love the spice, but Red Hots are horrible.

    and I love all those things you mentioned....

    I love oranges! Few things I don't like.

    Rarely drink hard liquor, and never without it diluted with something else so I can' taste it!

    1) Bitter root veggies. Rutabagas are the worst, turnips almost as bad.
    2) Sweet root veggies. Sweet potatoes, yams, beets, yuck.
    3) Organs. Liver, kidneys, brains, chitterlings, etc.

    I am actually fond of broccoli, asparagus, carrots, spinach and most other veggies not mentioned above. I LOVE mushrooms, and get cranky when I have guests who won't let me cook with them. I don't drink wine, but often cook with it. The only alcohol I really like drinking is rum, preferably in cold fruity mixed cocktails, but I don't indulge often.

    Interesting for sure to hear others likes and dislikes.

    Someone should chart this and with our names on it and it would be interesting to find out what is the most despised!

    I have been racking my brain for foods that I hate and am stumped. I find this thread amazing, though. I did not realise so many people hate ordinary things. And this is not just prefer or dislike but hate. Interesting. It would also be interesting to see actual statistics about food displayed in some sort of graph/ map thing and compare ethnicity, nationality, age, gender, income etc to food habits.
    It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

    Some of these distinctions are biological. My aversion to coriander and all its caraway and/or licorice or aniseed tinged fellow travellers is quite common. It's a sensitivity to a couple of chemicals. The oddest one for me is cinnamon. It's absolutely delicious in cakes and similar products but if you add it (or cassia bark) into a meat dish - happens a lot in North African and Middle Eastern cooking - it acquires that same, soapy taste in the mouth, the-meat-is-off aroma that coriander has.

    Nobody's mentioned it yet, but there are people who can't stand pork or bacon or sausages. But not always. Why not? About 5% of women, as well as 2% of men, are sensitive to the testosterone driven gamey taste and the-meat-is-off smell of boar meat. So this week's bacon was delicious, I'll be sure to buy that brand in future, becomes disastrous next time because it wasn't the manufacturer. It was that the nice taste was from a sow being killed, the nasty taste was from boar meat.

    Moose muzzle is a delicacy among the First Nations people. I have tried it but it is not of a texture that I enjoy. Bum gut, the cleaned and cooked large intestine of a moose or other large ungulate is quite good albeit chewy. It is rather like steak flavored rubber bands, lol.

    I used to eat such things until I learned that they are basically scavengers, bottom feeders. Amazing what we'll eat if we put garlic butter on it.

    Oh, speaking of spices one dislikes, I have an aversion to ginger. I have friends who love Thai food but roll their eyes when I refuse to touch it, as Thai food is almost always heavily laced with ginger. My Dad used to keep ginger snaps in his pantry because I had a way of making any other sort of cookie evaporate but I never eat ginger snaps.

    I'd have to overcome my aversion to "off" meat flavours/aromas to tolerate coriander/cilantro. It's not just the soapy taste. My daughters have occasionally berated me - in public - when I've asked them to check my Chinese/Mexican/whatever dish because it tastes as though the meat is off. Oh, come on Mum they say. Surely you recognised the taste of coriander!! No, I really didn't. What I tasted was that the meat was old/stale/off. The same thing happens with tarragon.

    Though I think it might be genetic in my case. My sister married a Czech man and dutifully started learning to cook Czech dishes. One memorable day she had a meat casserole on the stove and there came the point where she added dill to the hot mixture. And ran outside the house to throw up. Though both of us like dill pickles in certain circumstances - not in our burgers, though.

    Puking is never good.

    I did it the last time I had my younger sisters cooking. She is a horrid cook.

    I ate it.....felt it coming back up and quietly excused myself and went to the furthest bathroom in the house and puked as quietly as I could.....returned to the table and thanked her for her dinner.

    RAVANOUSLY ate a ROOM SERVICE SANDWICH LATER

    Or why some idiotic subjective belief of who must like what food or how people must enjoy food (which depends on culture largely) matters?

    I love Thai foods, it's the one place I've been where I could actually taste everything and absolutely loved it.
