Wow. I don't think I ever in my life met a person who didn't like pizza. I'm sure there are such people, I just have never met one.

Or maybe here in New Jersey, no one will admit it, lol.

I want to like yogurt, but no matter how many different forms I try I still don't like it. It's a shame because it seems so convenient and healthy.

Now that's something that I did learn to like after trying it a few times. I only like certain ones, and I don't like any of the type that has the jelly/jam-type cooked "fruit" in it. I just want vanilla or banana flavored when it's all smooth and blended. I do add blueberries or strawberries to the vanilla, and that's good.

It took me a while, though. Yogurt has a sour taste that you have to get used to.

We have Wegman's in my area, which is a nice grocery store that carries everything yet has reasonable prices. They have a Mediterranean bar, which has all different types of olives, as well as babaganoush and different types of hummus and Greek yogurt dip with dill and cucumber and other tasty things. I buy the dips and I really want to get the olives, except that I know they taste like ****.

I have tried over the years to test different olives and see if there is one I can find that doesn't immediately set off my gag reflex and make me spit it out, but I've had no luck. I'm 55. I don't think I'm ever going to learn to like olives.
Oh man, that's too bad. There might be one or two types of olive that I'm not too keen on, but none that really make me gag.

I often joke that I could be stranded on a deserted island with nothing but olives and cheese... since there are so many different types and preparations for both. I'd be so sad if olives didn't agree with my taste buds

Of course, I think raisins are vile, along with a whole bunch of stuff that other people love (okra - yack). I don't miss them since I don't like them, so I guess it's the same for you and olives.

I do not like hams, pork chops and most dessert pies, especially fruit pies like cherry and apple. I dread dinners on my mom's side of the family because it normally is ham or pork chops, pie, and a lot of gross "american" sides that I don't want to even think about. Mushy carrots with a sweet sauce come to mind... barf.

I also do not care for sweet potatoes, especially sweet potato fries. That is probably the one I've re-tried the most, because people keep telling me how great they are, and I've never liked them.

About sweet potato fries: I used to not like them, but I found if they are "Cajun spiced", i.e. with a lot of salt, pepper, and cayenne, they taste good.

It's weird, because I love sweet potatoes when having stuff like candied yams (my mom would put melted marshmellows on top, talk about over the top yummy sweetness) and baked or creamed sweet potatoes with butter and brown sugar is yummy. However, for some reason, sweet potato fries need that saltiness or I don't like them as much.

My wife hates caramel, which is odd because my ex-wife hates it too.

I never have liked peanut butter pie. It's just too sweet or something. It's odd, because I like peanut butter in a lot of things like fudge or cookies but peanut butter pies I can't stomach.
