What Popular Food Do You Hate?

I love just about anything vegetable and vegetable soup is my ‘go to’ comfort food, but I cannot stomach butternut squash under any circumstances. It really surprised me that I hated it the first time I tried a butternut squash soup, and it seems to be everywhere these days!

My sister-in-law tried to fool me by not telling me it was in a vegetable soup she made, but my stomach knew. It came back up faster than it went down. My sister-in-law is a very good cook btw so there was nothing intrinsically wrong with the soup.

Any fellow sufferers?

Couscous or bulgur wheat it’s like budgie food
Offal apart from haggis which I like
Allergic to shellfish
Ready meals don’t eat them
Don’t eat ready prepared sandwiches
Don’t eat eggs unless I prepared them
The list is endless I am fussy.

Ooh yes, runny eggs. Yuk.
Fatty meat. In fact, most meat.

Tea, fried and poached eggs, tapioca, semolina, custard, rice- all yuck.

Sushi, particularly with raw fish - yuck
Tonic water

Avocado is repulsive. Coriander tastes like bleach. Quinoa because pronouncing it is too pretentious, and Chia seeds...because, just, why??

Marmite, Peanut butter

hollysteers Sat 27-Feb-21 19:04:21

Not food, but I cannot drink tea out of my own house as I fuss around with manuka honey and it has to be a certain shade etc. Coffee is fine as more standardised.
I also cannot bear ice in anything unless it is very hot weather.

NotAGran55 Sat 27-Feb-21 19:05:08

Tea, jam, crumpets, malt loaf. Afternoon tea from hell .

Courgettes - and their adults (marrows).
Runny eggs.

Avocado, sushi (Have to admit I have never actually tried either, but I know I hate them.)

mumski Sat 27-Feb-21 19:43:58

Just can't summon up enthusiasm for any food at the moment. I think I fancy something but after a couple of bites I've lost interest..... except chocolate of course!
