    Are there any foods you will not eat? Food allergy? Just don't like the taste?

    For me, it's gotta be lobsters, crabs, and other crustaceans. To me, they look like pre-historic cockroaches. It just kinda grosses me out. icon_lol.gif

    The only exception would be shrimp. Deep fried of course!

    I agree, crustaceans are like large underwater insects. And I love to eat them, among my favorite foods. A whole lobster on a plate is heaven, looking at me with its eyes, and I just rip it apart. icon_biggrin.gif

    Within the US, there's not a lot of food that I won't eat. In a few foreign countries I can't eat insects and some of the other things they do, but generally my diet is pretty broad. My partner is always amazed at what I'll eat, much more than him, virtually anything that's on a US menu.

    Some things do give me indigestion, mostly peppers and a few other veggies, but I'll nibble a little of them anyway. I'll try virtually anything, and while specific preparations & dishes may not appeal to me, there's almost no basic food item in this country that I flatly refuse to eat.

    pdxor saidI don't do organ meats.

    By coincidence, my partner & I went to a brand new Italian restaurant for the first time last night. Liver was on the menu, which revolts him, and not a classic Italian item, anyway, I believe. I wasn't in the mood for it, as it happened, wanting something more signature Italian as long as we were there. But we joked about it, since he thinks I'm weird that I can eat it. LOL!

    But then I had an antipasto that included mussels on the shell, that I hate whole, organs and all. What other organ meats do you avoid?

    My mother loves kidney stew. My dad used to love to eat beef and deer hearts also, beef tongue, beef or pork brain.

    Gramps worked in a slaughterhouse. He warned that the only part of the pig that was wasted was the squeel. Because of that, I still wont eat hot dogs.

    When I was a kid at home, my father used to love oysters. He's eat them on the half-shell, slurping them down. I'd just go "ewwww" and look away.

    By my 40s I was eating them, too. In fact, Oysters Rockeller were the delicious appetizer I ordered for my 60th birthday dinner recently.

    And it was eating food items like that which made me suddenly realize, by my mid-40s, that I was turning into my late father. Not consciously, not deliberately, but inevitably.

    Which isn't a bad thing, BTW, since I admire him greatly, and miss him terribly. Just nothing I had ever expected would happen, when he ate all these weird things when I was a kid that I thought were "yucky."

    Now I eat them all myself, and I laugh inside every time, and always think of my late father, and what he would say if he knew. A silly way to remember my Dad, I know, but anything that recalls him to me is nothing to make me ashamed. I just wish we could sit down again and eat all those things together. icon_cry.gif

    Dude you've nixed LOBSTERS! It is the scavenger of the sea and caught at the appropriate size however so SWEET! I suggest you try eating SWEET BREADS and you might have a new appreciation for crustaceans!

    Just incase you not sure sweet breads are things known as tripe, brain, kidney, etc.......BON APPETITE

    White castle, although it is debatable as to whether this is food.

    Two foods...

    Celery! The most bitter putrid taste in the world...you can't even hide it in the food because I'll taste a pinch of it.

    Beets! Literally make me gag. LITERALLY...gag...me...beets. *wretch*.

    It’s so funny – when I was 19, my kidneys failed. Before the doctor could find out why they’d done that, they popped right back into shape with a week.
    But before they failed, I loved popcorn and I hated peas.
    After I recover, I couldn’t so much as stand the smell of popcorn – and I had an insatiable love of peas.

    Wonder which organ would have to get affected in order for my sexual orientation to change…?

    *shudder*

    Bugs, unless coated in chocolate (and then only small bugs, like ants and such).

    Not crazy about tripe and chicken feet, but have eaten both.

    Everything else, bring it on.

    cinnamon icing. Sounds yummy, bet never understood why cinnamon icing taste like medicine and is just hot. However, it's been a while since I had it. I might like it now, my taste mature a little more everyday.

    I can't digest peppers; they make me quite ill though not in a life-threatening way. This would be less of a problem if peppers weren't one of those ingredients that large numbers of restaurants don't feel the need to mention in the menu are in a given dish. Picking them out doesn't help, as whatever it is I can't digest seeps into everything else during the cooking process.

    Gah. They are the bane of my existence, followed closely by religious fundamentalists.

    When I was a teenager, Mum used to boil up some milk, then allowed the surface to skin over (the same with custard) then, very carefully she pinched the skin in the middle and lifted it, until it hung intact between her fingertips. She then raised it and dropped it into her own upturned mouth.
    I had problems not to regurgitate my last meal!
    But the only two veggies I don't like are garlic and turnips.
    Crab and lobster doesn't appeal either, but I never tried them.
    But once I tried Octopus (only its tentacles) and believe it or not, it tasted nice. Also, while in Australia, I was offered seaweed by a fellow backpacker I made friends with. Delicious!

    And BioNerd,
    this religious fundie is right behind you...I might just kiss your bott...

    I have to agree with Matia79 regarding the beets and celery... ewwww...
    I think anything with horseradish tastes like vile cleaning chemical solution.
    I am not a big fan of hot dogs.
    I try to avoid RAISINS at all costs!

    As for food allergies I have sensitivities for wheat and dairy. But I sometimes take the chance and eat 'em anyway!

    All seafood except for canned tuna (fresh: nope), crab, lobster, catfish, & frozen fish sticks (baked).

    I don't like the taste of fish besides the ones mentioned above.
