Ditto on those and I'll just add brussel sprouts and black eyed peas.

I thought I was the only one who this bothered. Nobody I know understands the texture thing. LOL. I love french onion soup and onion rings though, but if the onion isn't cooked enough, my throat just closes up on me.

Pretty much anything that would be on Fear Factor or Survivor I won't eat. I'm not interested in trying clams, muscles or oysters either. I just never understand who looked at those things and thought, "Mmmmm, I bet they're delicious."

Does this include oysters/clams? Just curious. (I love oysters myself, but realize that when you eat them raw on the halfshell they are mostly alive.)

Yeah, mostly I'll try anything once, but Anthony Bourdain's duck embryos I really could do without.

However, I've enjoyed rattlesnake, alligator, Rocky Mountain oysters (bull's testicles) and haggis and a few other novelty dishes.

In day-to-day eating, I'll never say never, because sometimes you find yourself in a position where it is eat it or starve.
However, stuff such as:

Kraft macaroni and cheese

Spaghetti-0's

soft white Wonder-bread type bread

babyback ribs--any type of ribs, and cloyingly sweet bbq sauce

will not be crossing my lips anytime soon.

You're right of course about Oysters and clams. I suppose I don't see them as alive because of being on ice for such a long time they are kind of suspended in animation so to speak.

I love Oysters on the shell but prefer cooked clams. But I guess Oysters are live so I will eat some live foods after all !

I like your list of "normal" foods actually.
I have never had spaghetti O but that does not appeal at all. I love real pasta so that kind of thing upsets my finer sensibilities....
I hate "fake" white bread too, And Kraft Macaroni cheese is an insult to macaroni AND cheese.

I would add to that list some UK condiments :
-Brown Sauce
-Marmite
-Vegimite
-Malt Vinegar


I also hate most commercial salad dressings, Hellman's mayonnaise ( and other similar brands), just about anything made by Heinz ( they add sugar to about everything),fake cheese, condensed milk, Horlicks and Ovaltine and anything which is too sweet or uses a lot of fake flavours. Potato chips with fake flavours, things like Doritos, and other snacks in the same vein.

I will not eat peas under any circumstance. How anyone can eat something that smells so foul when cooking is beyond me. The smell of peas cooking resembles the smell of a public men's room.

Wierd, I dont like raisins but dont have a problem with grapes or A1 sauce, which includes raisin jiuce in the ingredients. Cinnamon rolls, usually I'll ask if they have raisins before buying them, or will sit there and pick them out as I go.

OMG that is just gross! I knew there was a reason I wouldn't try them!

Can't stand the idea of that either

Nope

In day-to-day eating, I'll never say never, because sometimes you find yourself in a position where it is eat it or starve.
However, stuff such as:

Kraft macaroni and cheese - yummm - my fav!

Spaghetti-0's - not so much

soft white Wonder-bread type bread - who doesn't love Wonder?

babyback ribs--any type of ribs, and cloyingly sweet bbq sauce - not really a ribs girl

will not be crossing my lips anytime soon.
