Haggis. Not that it's bad, but it's real expensive and hard to get. There is only one place that I know of, where you can buy it frozen, but it's like an hour away (The Argyle in Kearney, NJ).

Real haggis containing sheep's lungs cannot be imported from Scotland due to health laws.

Liver, or organ meat of any kind.
Oysters

There are lots of vegetables I haven't ever eaten, but would be happy to try.

I figured it wasn't right to eat something smarter than me.

Super intelligent critters after watching them I feel they are at least as intelligent as porpoises
I have recently sworn off pork for this very reason. A friend has a pet pig and I just can't reconcile eating something so smart and interactive. And I do love some crispy bacon....

If I were honest about it, I'd probably have to be a complete vegetarian. I'll get there in increments.

Portabello mushrooms. They seem too expensive.
A lot of seafood. Too expensive for the cost per lb.
A lot of frozen dinners. Too much salt, fat, and a lot of weird ingredients. Usually for the price, you can buy the ingredients and have 4-10 meals. It may seem like you pay bit more. Nope. Cheaper to buy and make and freeze.

Haven't eaten at a Hardee's or Carl's Junior in more than a decade. Their service always seems slow.
Big sandwiches, slow service. I think my home made hamburgers are better for the price.
Seafood for sure. I was going to put it at the top of the list: One of our local markets had Halibut on sale about 2 months ago: I think the sale price was about $16 a lb. So much for my favorite fish.

Also haven't had eggplant, I can't stand it, plus rabbit: I think the last time I had rabbit was when we lived in the D.C. area in the mid 1980s.

wow, I can't believe anyone has gone 5 or more years without a baked or mashed potato!!! We do not eat a lot of them, but I can assure you we do love them.

I eat a baked potato once a month, at least. They are good for you and filling.

French fries and scalloped potatoes go on the ten year list. As does "Fast Food". All of it.

Here's fast food. Get a potato. Bake it. Stuff it with low fat cheese and sour cream. And serve with a tossed salad and oil and vinegar dressing. Add a side of asparagus or other in season veggie.

Pass on prepared fried potatoes. So bad for you!

It has been at least 30 years since I have had bananas, corned beef, rhubarb, veal, and ham.

I have never had liverwurst, most deli lunch meats, haggis, or really any type of organ meats or sushi fishes and don't plan on having any.

Lots of foods I've never eaten--many mentioned here: organ meats, sushi, odd veggies. No desire to try anything involving organ meats or raw fish. I might try different veggies, but I don't think of it often.

A food I've liked in the past but have not eaten: gyros. I became ill once after eating gyros and cannot bring myself to try to eat it again. I like the smell of them at our local Greek restaurant, but I can't even take a small bite of my H's.

At one point I could not eat cottage cheese because of a similar aversion. I got over it for some reason and eat it fairly regularly.

I never eat steak or chops. When I was a boy we had lamb chops every Monday and steak at least once during the week. My mother always bought the expensive varieties, but I was not impressed. I don't believe that I had a pork chop until I was a teenager; I was not impressed. I cook steak on occasion for my dogs who do like it. I fry it in butter with mushrooms as I do like steak-flavored mushrooms.

I like dishes with sauces and complicated flavors so I'll always take meat loaf. Steak Tartare is good, but it's really a raw meatloaf. Steak is the epitome of blah. We sure never see a steak in a five-star eatery.

Prepare a meatloaf some time without bread crumbs and don't add much if any liquid. Do add an extra egg; plop the eggs on top. But don't bake it; eat it raw.
