Are there foods you really hate?

February 26, 2010

As a self-described omnivore it’s hard to admit that there are foods I really just hate.

I hate:

  • Grapefruit– Seriously, why would you want to eat something that tastes like bile? Not even with honey on top. No. Never. No.
  • Stevia– I really hate all artificial sweeteners, but Stevia is especially offensive to my palate. Also, bougie skinny idiot moms really like it, therefore, I hate it.
  • Black Licorice – No thanks, grandpa.
  • Gin- No thanks, grandpa.
  • Beef Liver- I’ll eat chicken liver pate all day, but beef liver tastes like blood in an iron cask. I just can’t do it.

Foods/Drinks I used to hate that I made myself like:

  • Olives- The oily olive tapenade at the cozy and affordable Max really helped me on my journey to almost liking olives. (Also blue cheese stuffed olives in a martini.)
  • Bloody Mary’s– Once while boating I was offered one of these boozy tomato-laden drinks and I accepted, after all, we were all adults on a boat mid-morning. I was unaware that it was made with CLAMATO! PUKE! PORTMANTEAU! Keep your shellfish out of my booze, mister. A GREAT Bloody Mary with pepper vodka (with some good vodka, 8 or so chilis, a freezer, and one week you can have your very own)  and some veg. juice leagues better than V8 changed my mind recently.
  • Coconut Water- I had to really work the first few down, but the hangover healing, hyrdration powers of this desert island drink are worth that sort of off taste.

What about you?

  1. oh god. i hate me some peas! seriously. i think my parents near ruined me by feeding tiny liz too many canned, sad veggies. the peas were the worst; mushy and bitter. unless they are dried and rolled in wasabi.

    oh! and who could forget eggs! i don’t even think of them as a food, i hate them so. i hate every way that they interact with my senses.. there is nothing good about an egg.

    on the other hand, i have learned to love kombucha. i refer to it as our “healthcare plan” at work. i’ve gotta get me a kom-mom and start the process myself.

    You, sir, are wrong!
    Grapefruit is so delish and refreshing. And Olives taste like the worst. The only thing worse is a pickle, good sir.
