What's your "yuck" food?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created April 18, 2012 at 7:33 PM

What is the one thing (or the few things) that you just can't eat? I know that we all have foods we just can't take, so I'm just curious how what they are!

For me, I can not eat raw tomato and 99% of fish. I try all the time but I just can't get past the flavor/texture.

South American coconut water has a dry nasty flavor. Southeast Asian coconut water tastes like the milk from the bottom of a Rice Krispies bowl. Yum.

Shellfish, at least in America, has become "anything from the ocean with a hard shell". My wife has developed a crustacean allergy, which seems to throw people for a loop when she eats scallops, oysters, clams or mussels. I wish "shellfish" would go away, and the proper and more specific "crustacean" and "mollusk" would replace the term...

My first thought was black coffee, although of course it's not food anyhow. At least I enjoy the coffee after adding cream and honey; tea, on the other hand, tastes awful to me even when sweetened.

I don't like oysters AT ALL and have always refused to eat anything with that flavor. I don't like licorice either, although the "fresh" licorice taste of fennel works just fine for me.

Otherwise, I wish I were a little more picky because my general problem with food is that I like it too much.

EDIT: Oh, I forgot what may be my strongest Yuck!(see, I wiped them from my mind.) For me, avocado has the worst taste of anything. I've tried it whole and in dip form and there's nothing you can mix it with that allows me to call it edible.

I'm not a fan of kidneys or green olives. I have tried for so long to just casually eat green olives, and every time it makes me gag. A nice cured black olive- no problem. Green olives- slimy grossy nastiness. Kidneys taste exactly like what I imagine excretion would taste like, which is probably the fastest way to ruin a dinner.

I can't think of any other foods I dislike. Apart from perfectly good foods prepared the completely wrong way. Like overcooked fish- crime against the fish AND humanity.

Mushrooms. When there are so many types that can kill you, maybe that's natures way of saying "forage for something else, dude."

Celery. They kill my life. Unless smothered in something neolithic like peanut butter or cottage cheese I just can't get to like them...and I hate how the little strings get stuck in my teeth.

Anything made with coconut flour. Love coconut, but the "replacement" flours all make me feel like I've eaten a large pool raft. And everything comes out tasting like crumbly sponges.

In my former life, I couldn't stand birthday cake and really resented when it was pushed on me. Now I am running slow motion through a field of fats and vegetables and loving every minute.

Asparagus. The first time I remember trying to eat it I was about 5, took one bite and vomited in the sink. The smell alone makes me sick.

Kidney definitely. Rabbit and lamb kidney is almost tolerable but I sTill have to fight it down if I catch a whiff of something "off" while chewing or swallowing.

Years ago a friend from Malaysia made some funky fermented fish curry that I had to literally fight every inch of my esophagus from fork to stomach.

I don't like cheap, canned black or green olives... But I will eat dozens of olive bar olives.

I don't care for fish... Really more of a "meh" than a "yuck" though.

Chicken is the ultimate "meh" food for me. It doesn't repulse me but I'd rather fast than eat it.

For me it's offal because of the strong flavor/texture, most shellfish, and cooked mushrooms because of the texture, and little strong-tasting fish like anchovies or sardines. I also cannot stand brussels sprouts, although I've tried hard to become friends.

For my birthday once the brother of a dear friend went to great lengths and prepared a whole platter of exotic shellfish - lobster, clams, mussels, oysters, shrimp (I know that's not a shellfish but I put it in that category)... man was that a test of my poker face. thank god for butter and lemon juice.

Shellfish, at least in America, has become "anything from the ocean with a hard shell". My wife has developed a crustacean allergy, which seems to throw people for a loop when she eats scallops, oysters, clams or mussels. I wish "shellfish" would go away, and the proper and more specific "crustacean" and "mollusk" would replace the term...

sardines. I tried opening a can the other day for lunch and upon viewing the little slimy, scaley things physically shuddered and literally had to leave the room and make my boyfriend remove the can. I think it's an aversion developed from over exposure to my brother's dead pet fish throughout my childhood that I just can't stand small fish. On the other hand, I love crispy skinned salmon or sea bass.

What brand of sardines? Give Crown Prince Brisling sardines a try if they weren't specifically labeled. They're delicious, really not fishy, and have a pleasant slightly smoky flavor.

I absolutely hate onions, raw or cooked. I'm hyper-sensitive to the smell; it makes me physically ill. I can even smell them on someone's breath if they've had onions within a 24 hour time period. Seriously hinders my enjoyment of salsa.

Fake cinnamon candy like cinnamon hearts make me sick. Yet I love real cinnamon.

Yes to beef liver. I can handle chicken livers, lamb liver, and pork liver (in pate). But beef liver I just can't do by itself no matter what I try. (I sneak a tiny bit into meatballs from frozen, grated because I hate the smell and texture of fresh.)

Pemmican. I made a huge batch for a 5 day backpacking trip and took no other food. By end of first day (24 miles), I had only taken 2 bites of pemmican all day and couldn't force myself to eat more. Ended up tossing it and buying SAD food from convenience store for rest of trip. I guess some chance I just messed up making it. Maybe I'll try again with a smaller batch. Anyone else tried homemade pemmican and liked it? I followed Lex Rooker's pemmican manual for the recipe.

Kidney, liver, brain, etc. from any species.

I can choke down coconut, but I can't stand the flavor.

Raw tomato is fantastic! I eat them like an apple with a salt and pepper shaker handy.

Bite...shake, shake...bite...shake, shake...bite...shake, shake...bite...yum!

The best thing to remember about any food is "Somewhere, at sometime, someone ate this, and LIKED IT!"

There are lots of things I don't prefer to eat, but for dislike, it's mostly licorice. My ex-BF loved to drink Sambucca and it would just turn my stomach every time. I also dislike beets and bananas.

Also, I've aleways hated liver as a kid, but I'm gearing up to try it again after 20 years. I like chicken livers so I think I might be able to hack it this time, even if I don't love it.

Cooked mushrooms.

Worst of all: Beets

I can stomach everything else if I can just mix it to mask the nasty element--but beets flavor everything and their texture is revolting.
