Let's Dish: What Ingredients Do You Refuse To Eat?

Whether you're a picky eater or an adventurous one, everyone has certain items that they refuse to eat. Some things like mayonnaise, blue cheese, or cilantro are commonly hated, whereas things like chocolate or chicken are typically disliked by only a handful. Taste, texture, smell, color — whatever the reason — everyone has that one thing they avoid eating. So what ingredients do you refuse to eat?

I just watched Andrew Zimmern and he won't eat durian, it must be nasty, but I'd give it a try.

DURIAN!! It's in the jackfruit family but I can't get past the smell!

Liver and any seafood that I cook...I bought and cooked slipper lobster tails once and they reminded me of roaches...I swore off then! (I eat seafood in restaurants though???!!!)

I've always hated raisins. I've tried and tried, but I still can't stand them. I also hate red frosting. If it's on a cake, I won't eat it. It tastes like biting into an ink pen.

Wow, I never realized I was so picky until I read long list: -Goat cheese (except dry feta) -Olives -Green bell peppers -All seafood except a few types of fish -Tripe -Dill -Caraway -Lamb -Certain organ meats (brain, sweet breads) -Pickles -Beets -Cooked celery (raw is okay) But, I LOVE cilantro obsessively. I go through about three huge bunches of it a week!

There's only one thing I won't eat: tripe. That's all. Otherwise everything can be great when prepared correctly.

I hate liver, onions, and anything spicy.
No Mayo, nothing with beets, no meet (vegetarian) but other than that I'll eat anything, I'm usually pretty adventurous. Oh and that bitter weed looking vegetable that comes in mescaline salad

AGREE! Cilantro is awful! I'm so glad others realize this devious speck must be exterminated.

I don't eat liver or any sort of blue cheese...the mold factor just grosses me out. Also, I do NOT eat mayo. It's just gross.

Fennel fennel fennel. And it it so very popular with most of my fave chefs/cooks. Blech. Veggies should not taste like black licorice!

Any sort of liver. Otherwise, I eat mostly everything else.

Goat cheese makes me gag--so gross.

well, I'm a vegetarian for a start. I won't touch anything with coconunut, because I can't stand the smell or flavour; makes me feel physically sick. I also don't eat anything with added sulfites, or food which is naturally high in them. Oh and oysters.

Tomatoes, lima beans, avocado and tofu all gross me out and I can't eat them. It is mostly a texture thing with me.

Most of the veggies listed I love! Like mushrooms, tomatoes, bell peppers, beets, onions, green beans, celery and garlic.. I hate mayo, butter (baking is okay), most types of cheese, bacon, steak, iceberg lettuce, radishes, green olives, sour cream, avocado, and guacamole.
