Rare are the foods I won't eat. (Well, besides meat but I don't count that because I don't even consider it an option but I suppose I do need to mention it.) I LOVE food, sweet, savory, crunchy, mushy, sour, salty, tangy, stringy, smooth, dry, juicy, crisp, whatever! And sure, there are a lot of foods I don't eat often or at all, but I don't dislike then and WOULD eat them if they weren't battered, breaded, fried, loaded with sugar/salt/chemicals and such. We all know this list can change, just like half the list from back in 2010. But there are a couple of foods I just DO NOT like right now, and here they are:
Parsley-I can deal with a tiny bit, chopped up in pasta or eggs, but truly I don't really care for the flavor of parsley.
Ginger-I like a touch of ginger in a stir-fry, and a little bit in gingerbread but I don't eat candied ginger or ginger chews and I think sometimes recipes call for too much and make it taste bad.
Persimmons-EWWWW. They taste so...bland and they are a BAD mushy like goose poop, not a good Mushy like a ripe peach.
Pomegranates-I've never been wowed by the flavor and not really into the seeds.
Red Delicious Apples-NOT delicious at all! I like a sweet apple, I like a tart apple I like most any apple, red, green, yellow. But Red Delicious taste like cardboard and bitter skin! Yuck!
Sea vegetable snack-Sorry, I know it's good for me but I can't eat just straight up nori! On sushi rolls, it's ok, or crushed up and sprinkled on a salad it's background flavor, but I can't choke down those chips, it's just TOO MUCH SEA TASTE!
Sunflower seeds IN THE SHELL-I'll eat shelled sunflower seeds until the cows come home but EW to the shells! Shelling them is not worth the effort and I HATE the splintery, chewy shells in my mouth. Some people just chew them and swallow! I bought some at the gas station the other day as a pre-yoga snack and after munching down on the shells, I felt like a dog must feel after it chows down on bark mulch, I swear I could feel the roughage in my stomach, poking me!
Coffee-(If this counts as a food) I can't stand coffee. Even with milk and sugar and flavors and whipped cream and sprinkles, I hate it. I've tried several times, (because as an adult there are times when it's just a social given that you drink coffee right?) and never been able to choke it down. Tea for me!
Are there any foods you can't stand?
