    What is a relatively common food that you just can't eat?

    I'm not talking about preferences; for example, I prefer strip steaks to ribeyes absolutely, but I am not going to not eat a medium-rare ribeye that is sitting before me.

    I'm talking about foods that "everyone else" seems to enjoy, but you just can't do it.

    For me it's....crawfish. I just can't. I've had them a few times and....I think its the texture, which is weird as I can eat the planet's weight in shrimp.

    I've been watching Malcom Reed / Mark Williams crawfish videos on their new Out The Smoke YouTube channel and wow the flavors they dump in that pot look amazing, but I just can't do it.

      I'm weird too, then. I can appreciate any type of food that is unlikely to make me sick or kill me and is skillfully prepared.

      Both my parents were raised on farms and did not eat anything they did not raise until they left the farms. And that's what they bought, and what I ate until I left home.

      There are too many things for me to list them all, but I don't even like the smell of oily fish like tuna and salmon, much less the taste.

      I was a teen when I had my first pizza, and an adult when I first had any ethnic food such as Mexican or Chinese. The list goes on and on.

        I think I’m ok with fresh tuna, but canned tuna? The worst!

      Yoghurt (or 'yogurt'). Maybe it is because of the ghastly home-made stuff my mom made 60 years ago. To this day, I just gag on it in it's native state. MAYBE if it's in a recipe that includes baking and makes it not discernible.

      Cream of Anything.... won't eat anything it's made with... Wife is from the Midwest, almost everything has cream of something in it. I feel terrible... I'll help her make it, just won't taste it.

      Also hate potato salad, egg salad, chicken salad, tuna salad.... love potatoes, all variations of eggs, chicken and tuna.... love mayo and pretty much any ingredient in those types of salads, just won't eat them in that manner... also another midwest staple

        This is so true. Every single casserole recipe from the Midwest calls for some kind of canned, cream-based soup!

        Hmmm….hard to elaborate other than to say that I find the taste of strawberries to be gross and I can’t stand the little tiny seeds that make the mouth feel even more off-putting. But most people seem to LOOOOVE strawberries.

      y'all are weird. There's no common food I wont eat. My only "Nope" are slimy textured things, e.g. sea urchin but I can't call urchin common.

        I've rarely had it (Seattle, remember). From what I've been told, okra isn't slimy if it's prepared correctly?

        Well, okra can be made many ways, fried of course wouldn’t be slimy. But some people think if it’s boiled or simmered in a recipe, they call it a slimy. I never agreed with that though myself.

        Durian is in a class by itself. The taste is pretty horrible but the smell is worse. I describe it as rotten onion and a dirty diaper strained through an old gym sock. I had some in Indonesia and when I got home I searched all the Asian markets here to get some so my friends could all share my pain.

      Tomatoes.

      They are fine when cooked, but raw? No way, Jose.

        Absolutely hated raw mater, as a child...sauce, ketchup, mater products was fine...but I would urp in my mouth, watchin someone eat a fresh from our garden mater like it was an orchard apple: mater in one hand, salt shaker in t'other, an consume it in my presence...
        Loves me some maters now, natch, garden fresh, make some pico, in a salad, on a Quality homemade burgesa, BLT.
        Rather face a rabid pitbull with a plastic butterknife than them ghastly maters th stores have in Winter, still

        Mark V, I grew up in the bottoms of Pigeon Creek in southern Indiana. A genuine hillbilly. One of my chores was picking those horned worms off of the tomatoes in the home garden. I hated tomatoes and I hated those devil's spawn worms.

        So the answer is; Yes!

        I haven't found any soy cheese I'm particularly fond of, and some is downright awful. Luckily Kraft shredded mozzarella and Cabot cheddars are lactose-free, so that takes care of pizza and sandwich needs.

        Willy I'm with you on liver. Have tried many times and cannot like it. Unless it is fresh deer or elk liver then I am fine. Not sure why that is and will leave that up to the experts here to maybe explain.

        Just want to add of all foods I have tried (and I have tried many) liver is the only one I just cannot eat.

        Re: Dirt

        We'uns usedta eat a wholle lotta dirt, at times, to feel full...

        Don't let this here git around, but we'uns often hadda wait 'til after dark, to have supper...

        Once th Sun was set, an it was proper dark, why, we'd sneak all under, or straddle th neighbours fences, an eat dirt until our sides was a bulgin, on accounta we was way too poor to afford havin any our very own dirt.

        Pickled beets in a jar have ruined a lot of folks on beets. That’s a lousy thing to do to them. But properly roasted over charcoal or wrapped in foil in the oven are sweet and delish to me. Beets are used to make a lot of the sugar you buy. Just sayin’
