Oatmeal. I can eat oat bran, but the texture of oatmeal is just, yuk. Probably comes from my father trying to force me to eat it, as it became cold and ever so nauseating.

I don't like cooked squid (calamari) but, oddly enough, it's good in sashimi. Go figure.

It always amazes me when people say they don't like tofu. It really has no flavor on its own. It's all in how you cook it. Fried tofu is VERY good!

I don't like:

green peppers (red, yellow and orange are usually ok)

celery - It has no place in soups or salads like potato salad. Ugh. I will, however, eat it raw with peanut butter on it. Somehow the pb neutralizes the flavor

fudge

cheesecake

grapefruit

any kind of melon - watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew

Exactly. Tofu becomes what you cook it in/with.

It's the texture I don't like.

Add that to my list, too! I love other smokey flavors and like jalapenos - just not the chipotle combo. Even a little bit takes over an entire dish, IMO.

I like tofu but totally get why others wouldn't. There's the texture issue like others have mentioned - and, even though it does just hold sauce/flavors sort of like pasta does, it has an underlying almost chalky blandness that still comes through.

's list reminded me - I feel the same about peas as he does about green beans. Fresh or canned are ok but I can't stand frozen peas!

For those that don't like the texture of tofu, do you like custards? And have you tried it fried? Fried is SOOOO good! I love it in Asian foods.

Custards are OK, not my favorite. Do you think you hate celery because of the texture? Over all I'm not a fan of bland mushy foods.. I like food that fights back a little. I adore celery, and consider it a must in potato, macaroni, chicken salads.

I'll eat tofu cubes in hot and sour soup, but I avoid ordering any dishes that tofu is a main component of. I'm pretty sure I'd even eat cardboard if you deep-fried it though.

Chipotle is SOOOO popular in this region, it ruins many an otherwise good dish for me. I have tried so hard to learn to like it, but I just can't. I love fresh or pickled jalapenos, and I like other smoked things... just as you say.

1. I love custards and all sorts of bland foods - mushy or otherwise - but I also love very hot/spicy foods.
2. I like celery too - especially in those dishes or with peanut butter, cream cheese, or stewed with pot roast. Mmm. My husband can't stand it, though - texture thing for him.
3. Love tofu in hot and sour soup! In fact, I prefer it that way than fried. It can be good fried but also can end up sogging out or getting rubbery/squeeky like bad cheese curds sometimes.
4. My sister's most beloved ex-boyfriend (beloved by our family) is from Richardson, TX!
