Popcorn shrimp - Really? It looks and taste nothing like shrimp or where is the shrimp?
Tuna sandwich - Quite possibly the worst seafood dish ever created, taste more like chicken than tuna.
Bologna cheese sandwich - They serve that to kids and immates at prisons. The worst kind of mystery meat.
Fried fish fillet with cheese stuffed - Another really bad combo.
Turkey with gravy, Thanksgiving - Traditional but the most bland and boring dish. Rather have a smoked turkey leg.
Pea soup - I love peas but crushed into a soup, taste worst than celery soup.
Avocado Toast - Quite possibly the most overrated Millennial and Gen Z dish. Avocado taste better straight or as a dip than eaten with bread. Because it doesn't melt like butter and it has contrasting taste and texture. That is why you never see people eat avocado and bagel.
I don't like any of the things you mention but I would add:
- I don't like chicken no matter how it is prepared
- I don't eat processed foods
- I don't eat high carb foods
- I've never liked bread
- I hate mayonnaise
- I don't like soda pop
- I don't like beer
- Egg white (love the yoke though)

Basically I'm picky as Hell. What's funny is my 5 years old grandson is just as picky and doesn't like pretty much the same as me.

I CAN eat everything, but WON'T eat deep fried food, infinite shelf life breads and other supermarket bakery stuff, sheet cakes and most other (American) sweets, candies and cookies, most canned food (except seafood), over-processed food, ice cream, margarine, lard, food that is too fatty, salty or sweet, most fast foods, turkey, BBQ covered with bbq sauce, cheese singles, most deli salads, sugary cereals, sausages, TV dinners, milkshakes, sugary drinks, meal replacement shakes, fruit yogurts, foods coated with artificial chocolate .... I know, it's a long list, but my stomach isn't a garbage bin.
In short - highly unhealthy (junk) food, refined carbs, processed oils, food full of additives and preservatives, and other unhealthy ingredients.

I used to eat steak well done which in my family is blasphemy. I eat it medium to medium rare. Otherwise it's dry and tasteless. Try It medium. you may never go back to well done steak.

Chicken breast is good if it is not over cooked, with a nice sauce, or seasoning.
Bologna fried with oinions is wonderful. Do you like hotdogs? Same thing.
I love tuna....not at all like chicken....just ask my DH, who also can not stand tuna.
Turkey....best part for me is making turkey soup.
I agree with popcorn shrimp.
My mom made the best peasoup, with a big old ham bone. Very good.
It is hard for me to come up with foods I do not like....except.....grits.

I'm with you on pea soup. It reminds me of the barf scenes from The Exorcist. They used pea soup.



But chicken wings - that used to be the part that got tossed. I prefer boneless actually.

Cauliflower, strong cheeses (I enjoy mild tasting cheeses though), liver, heavily battered and fried foods, eggplant, crab, extremely salty or overly sweetened foods, cheese pizza (I like having veggies & meat on my pizza), and heavily marbled fatty steaks.

Ooh.. yeah.. Fried Bologna.. So, I'll reverse course on not liking bologna for that.. But.. i'll keep that.. Not just luncheon meat out of a pack.

You get a nice, thick cut piece of it and fry it up.. That's pretty good. Onions and mustard for a sandwich.. Or put it on a biscuit with an egg.


I'll just ignore the whole part about not liking grits. People here saying no to grits, country fried steak and white gravy.. Something not right about that.. lol

Except for pea soup and grits, you guys pretty much eliminated everything I ate growing up. I eat much more widely (and better) now.


Lord only knows how many baloney sandwiches on white Wonder bread with Kraft "cheese food" and Miracle Whip me and and my brothers ate for lunch at school.

I was the youngest kid in the family and when my mom roasted a chicken, I got the wings. They were obviously seen as the "least desirable" part.

But I loved wings then and still do. Now that wings are so popular, I am upset that although I can find cheap packages of fresh chicken breasts, thighs, and drumsticks, there are no longer any cheap chicken wings. I guess they are all being sold to restaurants. The only way I can get them is to buy the whole chicken.
