    Just to add. I cannot stand girkins.

    I remember once, I had a burger and that was in it and I actually spat it out in disgust and it ruined the entire burger for me and that was the last time.

    Also: goats cheese. Again, remember, we visited this lady and her husband for lunch and she was so proud ( justifiably so) that she had made us pizza from scratch and proudly put the plate down in front of each of us and I happily took one mouthful and immedately, my eyes started to water, with how gross it tasted and smelt. I kept gagging; trying in vain to gollap wine down, to disguise the smell and taste, but it was getting worse, so with deep chagrin, I admitted that I could not eat it, but she was so lovely and said that goat's cheese is not for everyone. Question? Why give guests something like that? And, now frightened off it; no matter what ones try to say.

    Ah yes, here in France too, they have raw ham slices and honestly, it is the most repulsive thing, because all you do is chew; you have to force yourself to swollow it, so I keep away from that.

    Despite it all though, I am not a fussy eater lol

    Lemon. Anything with lemon in it - sauces, sweets, cleaning detergents. Dislike eggs, too, disgusting smelly, gooey things. And vinegar, because anything with vinegar on it just tastes of... vinegar.

    Sweet potatoes. They taste awful and look like earwax.

    I might guess that some who do things that are good for them exaggerate a bit, like saying that they run six miles a day when really they run three, some days.

    I think that pretending to like brussels sprouts is the 'oh look at me I eat my vegetables aren't I great' equivalent of that. Nobody really likes them, those who 'do' are shamed into it or trying to one-up everyone else. Some people even have seconds! What a twisted world.

    I LOVE brussels sprouts!!

    Edit: brussels sprouts contain a bitter-tasting chemical that most are sensitive to, but some aren't, which explains why most people hate them so much. Just like some people like coriander, but for others it tastes like soap. There's actually a gene for this.

    They are scavengers if a sewage treatment plant allows raw sewage to enter the sea guess where it goes, scavengers don't have a choice.I admire the job scavengers do they clean the earth obviously not actually designed for raw sewage

    Sundried tomatoes. Worst thing ever. And the smell of mustard. Ugh.

    My aunt used to give bechamel sauce with quite a lot of foods, it tasted unfinished, thick, like flour water and distasteful

    Pigs are a bit luckier, people seem to feed them better things xD Luckily she stopped the bechamel adventures

    I like Brussels sprouts, too, if they are cooked right. Boiled sprouts are terrible. I like them cut in half and sautéed in vegetable oil in a screaming hot cast iron skillet so they get a little char on them but still have some crunch, drizzle some honey over them to serve them.

    You're in Canada, Sherlock, where people eat poutine (fried potatoes, topped with cheese curds and brown gravy), so I understand why your palette would like that flavor combo. Gravy on French fries is virtually unheard of in the US but I'd probably like it, too.

    But ketchup is still popular here...

    Poutine is tasty, not exactly the healthiest choice of food, an occasional treat for me...

    It's a heart attack waiting to happen but I bet it's really good on a cold, snowy, winter night where you live. I'm sure I'd like it. It has my 3 favorite food groups - fried potatoes, cheese, and gravy. What's not to like? :)

    I suspect that there is a gene for celery, too. People either like it or hate it. I don't like it raw (soapy taste) but it's okay when cooked.
