I will never understand the appeal of Marshmallows or over sweet things like molasses, treacle puddings that sort of thing.
I can eat them but I find them really quite repugnant.

Also what I term "fake" chocolate like Cadbury's or Hershey's is also something the charm of which escapes me totally. It tastes more like fat, refined sugar and burnt caramel to me.

I love raw spinach but cooked the taste actually does not agree with me at all.

I hate Marmite , Brown Sauce both disgusting UK "delicacies". And I loathe rhubarb. I cannot fathom why people enjoy it so much.

Not that fond of lungs, or heart /brains unless in a Haggis.

My fiance likes cereals and to me it tastes like bird food. You can eat it if you have to but hardly something I would go out of my way to .

Everybody loves Fish and Chips and so far in 20 years in the UK I have it countless times and only once was it enjoyable. Usually tastes of fat and little else, the chips are soggy and it is a crime towards fish.

I am not keen on deep fried anything usually , especially seafood which to me is akin to culinary murder. People love it and I don't.

I can't stand things like beautiful crab/scallops covered in salty processed cheese sauces that kind of thing. Once again people love it and every fibre of my being just rebels against that idea...

I will eat octopus and calamari but don't see the point. I find it quite flavourless and always chewy even when raw.

Iceberg lettuce. What on earth is that all about ? Tastes like water, adds absolutely nothing to any dish.

Gooseberries , looks pretty on a plate but should remain seen and not tasted.

Starfruit, Kiwi etc... no particular taste at all.

Lamb/Mutton is the only meat which does not agree with me, I will eat it if invited to a dinner party but know I will end up paying for it at some point. My digestive system seems unable to cope with it at all. I don't think I have any nomadic shepherds in my distant past...

Donuts

Most desserts (now that I think about it...)

Anything fried (I'll eat French fries occasionally, but I prefer baked or roasted potatoes)

Cilantro.
It smells like stinky feet to me.
Which is a bummer because I LOVE Mexican food.

those grey and mushy green beans that look like they've been cooked for 3 days that they serve at southern barbecue joints.


Bananas.

I read there is a certain gene(enzyme) that some people have/don't have that makes the cilantro taste either fantastically good or like soap, depending on the person.

I am not a huge cilantro fan but I do put it in salsa.

After several years of trying, I still don't care for sushi. Don't get me wrong, I eat it, I just don't get the attraction many have to it.
