What most Americans people like, I hate:

French Fries
Ice Cream

When I go to the grocery store, it is like a page out of the DSM IV Axis II description of OCD, I read every label and every price per size it takes me a long time to shop.

I prefer to cook my own food, because I don't trust others to do it properly. I have spent too many times in restaurants sending over-cooked burgers and steaks back, gotten home or to the office with a wrong order etc. So if I do ever do take out, I watch them prepare it and inspect it before I leave.

I also hate when food touches.

I carefully trim every piece of meat I cook. Biting into a weird chunk of cartilage just grosses me out. This is another reason why I don't like restaurants.

Weird food combos? I like raw sugar on peanut butter sandwiches with whole wheat bread and black olives on tacos.

I refuse to drink out of plastic glasses. No matter whose they are, they always seem to have a disgusting odor.

Last night we had soup & grilled cheese sandwiches and my oldest daughter said to me " mommy, why do you like to dip your grilled cheese in mustard?"
And then both of my kids said " it is very weird".. LOL!

I like to dip pretzels in mustard,french fries..... So, I guess that is strange to them.I can't stand ketchup!

In Brazil, they put ketchup,routinely, on their pizza. One I couldn't do! I like soy milk, which is weird to some. I don't eat a lot of bread, which could be considered weird,too, and I have a disdain for fast food. Just doesn't appeal to me. After not eating it for a long time, I had french fries a while back, ick, my homeade ones are better!

I like peanut butter on my waffles.

I like Pop Tarts straight from the box, not toasted.

Love to "lick" the salt off a big chip before I eat it.

Now I don't have the "over-lapping foods" issue that some posters on here do; however, in Louisiana I've often found the entree dumped right on top of the french fries, and I just HATE that. It makes the fries soggy.

Definitely prefer mayonnaise (Best Foods) over Miracle Whip. Opposite for my husband. And for a snack I love just a slather of Best Foods on a slice of bread (best on fresh white bread).

Like some others here, when I eat a peanut M&M, I bite into the chocolate, leaving the peanut whole, then eat the peanut, then the rest of the chocolate.

One of the main things for me is I do not like food that has large chunks of meat or vegetables in it. I prefer chopped salads for this reason.

And if I eat chicken, it has to be pounded very thin, or cold, and/or severely marinated.

I like to put the fries IN with the burger and eat both together. Every bite of burger MUST be paired with fries. Actually same with all my food.

MY OH eats everything separately - it drives me CRAZY! So he'll eat the turkey, then the mashed potatoes, then the veggies - ARG!

I don't like large chunks either. I always pound my chicken (that sounds funny...) very thinly before cooking.

And like another poster mentioned - when I used to eat butter (butttttteeerrrrrr) I would wait until the toast was cold and spread on thick - so I could see my teeth marks when I bit into it.

Oooo, and I hate raw onion - if it touches my food - I ain't eatin' it!

Glad I'm not the only one who does that with the Peanut M&M's!

I cannot stand eating fat on meat. I will do everything possible to cut it off.

I like my wheat muffins toasted, almost to the point of being burned. No wimpy wheat muffins for me!

The thought of eating greasy finger foods annoys me greatly. Not a big fan of picking up fried chicken or ribs to eat them. I cut the meat off the bone.

Eating spaghetti sauce wearing anything but dark colors worries me, and it will take me forever to finish that plate of spaghetti and meatballs. Some of it invariably gets on that white t-shirt .... unless I wear a bib!

I truly, truly loathe grape or raspberry jelly doughnuts ... to the point that they can make me nauseous to eat them. Back when I was a child, my uncle used to hang around a doughnut shop, and would bring bags stuffed with day-old doughnuts (shopping bags, NOT little lunch bags) to our house. Almost all of them were grape or raspberry jelly, and my mother would insist on not wasting them. After several days of constantly eating them, and doing this most months for several years, jelly doughnuts kind of lose their charm.

I love French Fries dipped in a cold vanilla shake. I will not eat chicken off the bone. I'll remove the meat then eat the chicken, the bone must be removed far away from the rest of the food on the plate.

* Chinese Fried Rice with Doritos
* Donuts (jelly ones) with Chocolate flavored Muscle Milk (Yes I know I am not supposed to eat donut after working out, but they make awesome snacks!)
* Pizza with ketchup
* Another weird thing that is not a combo, I like to get small packages of Smuckers jelly / jam and eat them by itself
* Crackers and Milk
