There's not much I don't like but one thing that comes to mind is Wasabi. Vile! Not a big fan of horseradish either. Most things I will eat but as we are in Christmas season- I'm on the fence with Mince Pies, the pastry is nice but I don't share the excitement of most of the country, the filling is kind of sickly.

Yeah, I'm not keen on them. Just don't enjoy eating 'em.
Maybe I'm just not a fun-guy.....

Cucumber. It’s the stench!
Courgettes. Can’t even pick them up. The texture is all wrong as a food stuff.
Baked beans. Feels like like slimy snot in your mouth with lumps.
Gin. It’s made with aromatics! That’s what goes into a pot pourri, not your stomach.
Grapes. Disgusting texture in the mouth. How can this stuff make wine? Which I like very much.
Olives. They just look nasty.

Cucumbers are 98% water and I've never even noticed a smell from them. They both smell and taste of very little so I find you comment bizarre.

Cucumbers stinking may be the strangest one I've seen on this thread.

+1 for olives, forgot about these orrible little things when I first posted.
Glad to see I have plenty of company in the Anti Courgette Movement!

Another addition for me is Paxo - just dust and boiled water! Stuffing needs to be made with good quality butcher's sausage meat, NOT a packet of Paxo - just wrong.

I used to hate them with a passion when I was younger. I don't mind them now which really surprises me.

Baked beans. Feels like like slimy snot in your mouth with lumps.


Agree 100% - the best way to ruin an English breakfast.

Olives. They just look nasty.


I bloody love 'em. Always buy a tub when I go shopping, usually with some Feta cheese in them and devour them with a beer. Lovely stuff.

Thanks for reminding me.... beef burgers! Don’t mind home made ones so much, but what do you think that you are eating?

And sausages. For those north of Carlisle, have you seen the fat oozing out of Lorne sausage when you cook it?? There would be no need for defibrillators if this food stuff was banned.

Can't believe all the fantastic food listed on this thread. Odd bunch some of you lot.

Indeed.

Processed ham, similar to kebab meat - for those that eat it and don't know how it's made, involves cheap and nasty cuts and ends of ham being carved and set aside not for use in the final product, before you pressure washer blasting the gristle, fat, sinew, scum etc off the bone clean, before it is obliterated into a pulp, injected with copious amounts of milk and salt water before being formed back onto the bone and then carved into your lovely natural square or circular shapes.

Yummy.

For some reason Pesto makes me feel sick. The same for Worcestershire Sauce flavour crisps.
I have no idea why. I don't mind any of the individual ingredients in Pesto & use W. Sauce in cooking.
Perhaps there IS something wrong with me...

Took my eldest and her mate to the pictures on Tuesday. They had a pizza afterwards. I watched her mate pick off all the little bits of basil the chef had carefully topped it with. Later on that day, her mate asked for pasta pesto for supper.

People are ****ing strange.
