Dear Gawd HRW, you're not supposed to eat green lima beans!! I hate the green ones, they're disgusting, but the large white ones taste like heaven, there is nothing similar in the taste at all.

I think the worst food is the food that sends one running to the toilet and crapping blood. Unfortunately for me i have to experience this a few times a year. Theres little food sanitary enforcement near the place i live.

I absolutely hate liver... can't stand it. The last time I ate it it made me vomit. When it comes to bad tastes and smells my gag reflex is pretty strong. (get you mind out of the gutter arildno)

I have though eaten some things that most people probably wouldn't like much. At least most people where I live. The weirdest was probably sea anemone. Eel is one of my favorite fish to eat.

There are white ones? My mom always made the green ones. :yuck: It was the first vegetable I didn't like. Unfortunately, they are too often served with carrots, which I also don't like cooked (love raw carrots, and can tolerate them if they are lightly steamed, but mom would boil them to death)... the combination left me wishing she had plopped a big scoop of mud on my plate instead.

Cool, I'm glad I'm not the only one who detests (green) lima beans. :yuck:

seafood!

I could never eat it. My parents never had it at our house. Not even fish. I was told it was "cat food". I know that is insulting to many of you but it has stuck with me.

Any time I see a sea critter I cringe at the thought of actually consuming it. Same goes for pork and poultry. But cattle? moose? venison? I somehow view those as tasty creatures.

Tasty: http://www.curtiswoodfarm.us/angus/V5042.jpg [Broken]

It is rather a weird condition (and conditioning) I have!

My father loves lima beans. My mother and I both hate them. When I was a teenager going to camp for the summer, she filled out that I was allergic to them so I wouldn't be made to eat them on the off chance they were served.

The only thing more disgusting would be to add hominy to the plate. :surprised :yuck:

Good God kaos, that is most unfortunate.

MEGA-DITTO! Corn soaked in lye CAN'T be good for you. Yet another reason to like Evo.

I could've lived with the critters and ice cold air conditioning but not this...the wedding is off.

I'll add Vegemite to the list. It tastes like a scraped out beercan.

:!!) THE avatar is back...(swoon)

Spam...as in spiced ham.

I always liked this as a kid, but now I can't get past the first piece.

I grew up on powdered milk. We couldn't afford the real stuff, but to help compensate, mom would add a little coffee mate to help make it creamier. :yuck:

Anyone like SOS? [sh't on a shingle, or dried beef gravy sandwhiches]

oh yes, and... Once upon a time when I was a kid and in the scouts, we [my troop] hiked to the top of San Gorgonio Mountain [IIRC]. When we reached the top we broke out the only real snack at hand - big bags of dehydrated pear slices... We all got really sick, and the runs, which is all great fun during primitive camping trips...ten miles from the nearest road. I couldn't eat anything even remotely similar for a couple of decades.

The smell of slaughtered chickens being dipped into boiling water with paraffin still makes me retch. As does the taste of boiled turnips.

Vegemite and Marmite are great! But then I like lima beans (green and white), broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, asparagus, beets, turnips, parsnip - in fact, there isn't an edible plant I don't like.

Roasted vegetables are great. And for things like asparagus, broccoli or cauliflower, it sometimes helps to have the right cheese sauce. Asparagus in Manchego cheese sauce is great!

As for meat, probably just about anything, although I don't care for McDonalds.
