I feel like the process of eating lobster is pretty gross...digging the flesh out of the arthropod exoskeleton like it's a gigantic bug. And that's even excluding the tomalley.

I find lobster tasty enough, but it's kind of gross, messy, and not entirely worth the effort.


Deep fried foods tend to top my "simultaneously delicious and gross" list. I love the taste, but immediately thereafter get icked out and queasy due to the amount of grease. I also usually get acid reflux after eating fried foods, so even though I love them, it's usually not worth it.

Another example for myself would be ice cream/frozen yogurt. I love it but will only eat it if it's loaded with toppings but I hate milk and if I can taste the milk I won't eat it.
That rings a bell with me.

I despise milk. More than despise. I vomit at the smell of milk. I hate milk with a passion.

But I love cottage cheese.

I can't stomach yogurt. I tried. I don't hate it, but I see no reason to eat it.

I eat ice cream almost every day. But it has to be chocolate, preferably with nuts. Vanilla ice cream is sickening, probably because it makes me think of milk.

I really, really hate milk. But cottage cheese...........lol. Salt and pepper, and even better with fresh picked tomatoes. OMG, I wish I had some right now.

I remember watching a show once on The Travel Channel. I think it was somewhere in South America. There was a woman who had an outdoor lunch stand set up in an area where there were a lot of workers. Her specialty was some sort of soup. I thought it looked delicious with its nice tomatoey looking base. Only it wasn't tomato but a bucket of pig blood. Had I not known it was pig blood I probably would have tried it if I had the chance. Though just knowing is absolutely stomach churning.
I've been eating menudo since I was 1. My grandmother made it spicy, too. I grew up on it so it doesn't bother me.

I loathe milk AND cottage cheese.
Yoghurt reminds me of milk that's been sitting out in the sun for two days,

Really pungent foods. Like some types of fresh mango, or durian, or stinky tofu, or munster cheese. I like the taste of all of these things, but sometimes I cannot get past the odor. And I certainly do not want any of them in my house, so I only eat them when I am out.

Probably deviled eggs. The smell and consistency are awful but they are delicious.

Me too! I haven't drank a glass of milk since I was about four-years-old. When I eat cereal I eat it dry. I don't eat yogurt (except frozen and loaded with toppings. No vanilla for me either!), I'll only eat cheese if it's hot and baked into something, never cold cheese. I don't like white salad dressings. No pudding. I'll probably get osteoporosis.

I really want to dry durian.
I eat dry cereal too, just because the way milk makes me feel. Also I'm paranoid about the hormones that may be in there, I have enough of my own hormones.
