    In a somewhat reversed version of the previous GBAChef this time it is foods that you dislike but people in general would call a staple of their diet but for the fact they are usually not great for you or are quite expensive.

    Popular examples include

    Bacon
    This is the internet so I assume this does not need backing up. Still http://xkcd.com/418/
    Coffee

    Tea
    I am told that as I have some blood of an Englishman on in me I should be drinking buckets of the stuff. Unlike coffee I could probably choke some down but I would not be happy about it.

    Some people do not eat dairy which I find a bit odd but there are good reasons for some of it.

    Salt
    Unless the recipe chemically demands it I will tend to avoid it.

    UK wise it has to be mushy peas.
    A chip shop staple and horrible slimy stuff as far as I am concerned.

    I do not like tomatoes and tomatoes do not like me so that does also mean I miss out in pizza unless I want to kill every vampire in a 3 block radius by eating a garlic pizza or waste my precious jarred peppers on something as boring as pizza. However it is quite hard to avoid them as they are a really cheap bulking agent used almost everywhere.

    I have hard time trusting people that do not like white chocolate.

    Milk.
    Makes me gag and throw up. I'm not lactose intolerant, I just really hate the taste of milk. I won't even eat stew because it has milk in it. And I'm talking about white milk.

    Steak.
    That stuff is nasty. Chewy as all hell and just an overall gross thing to put on a plate.

    I really can't think of anything...i'll eat pretty much anything. There's very little I don't actually like. Beets, liver and other gross crap like that I don't like though, but a lot of people don't either.

    After reading your last point though.
    I really do not like white chocolate. It's just overly sweet and I can feel my very soul rotting every time I eat it. I don't mind it in some instances, but that's usually when it's mixed with real chocolate. Considering my favorite chocolate of all time was an 88% mint dark chocolate bar i picked up in Finland (and can't find anywhere elseeeeeeeeeeee), that probably speaks volumes as to why I don't like white chocolate.


    You must have some shitty cheap ass steak if "chewy" is a problem.
    Even middle-of-the-road steaks can be made tender as hell.
    Steak is definitely gross if the person making it is inept though. I hate eating steak at other peoples houses because my dad makes the best damn steaks ever, everything tastes like crap comparatively.

    Mustard
    I had some some time ago and I simply hated it. No other reason, but I should give it another try.

    Sausages
    I just hate the sight of those. I almost threw up once trying to eat and so I have not had a single one in my life and am very healthy indeed.

    Pork
    Never had any since my religion forbids it, but how can anyone have? Pigs eat feces for God's sake!

    Is that all types of milk (goat is fairly easy to come by around here)? As for milk in stews... I guess you can use it but it is not a requirement. I usually boil up some spuds, leeks, carrots and whatever other vegetables are going that day, chuck in some cooking wine, stock (if necessary) and then whatever meat, if there is anything going in, before simmering for many hours.

    As for steak, I believe the response at this point is if you had a chewy steak then someone likely prepared it wrong (or more likely you said you do not know what sort of steak you like and that seems to mean most people default to shoe leather) or you might want to try some of the other methods of preparing it. You may have also tried a different cut, offhand I am not sure what butchery methods are favoured around you so I will avoid using cut names you might have a hard time getting.

    Nah all steak. I've tried chef's steak, restaurant steak, cooked my own. Just all steak in general is gross. But it's not that surprising because I also hate like Ribs, and pork chops and other meats like that.

    And I've never had goat milk. But I mean just white milk in general like the ones you can buy from a grocery store. The taste throws me off.

    What type of mustard was it? There are usually considered to be three main types (English, French and American) to say nothing of Mustard seeds though I am prepared to hear there are more. Personally I am not a fan of any of them but they each taste quite different.

    Sausages are also cooked and made in a variety of ways. Somewhat amusingly the Americans seem to favour large percentages of meat (give or take hot dogs) which means when I am over there I often have to look hard to find ones with a nice bit of rusk in them.

    Pork. It does little for me, probably why I really do not care for bacon, but I wonder if that is more a function of not liking salt. As for eating faeces many animals will do this or something functionally equivalent, rabbits even have this as a vital component of their digestion.

    This made doubly amusing for me by some of the finest cheese shops that I have ever been in being found in the Netherlands.

    Is this all cheeses though as there are a very wide variety of them out there, including ones made with sheep or goat milk.

    Yup, all kinds. I don't even like the idea of eating cheese. It borders on some kind of phobia, honestly.

    Squid. I hate it with a passion. My countryfolk seem to love them though (It's called sotong here, for the curious).

    Tomatoes. There's this funny taste (and aftertaste, both carrying different tastes) that makes me feel like throwing up.

    Mutton. I can't stand the taste.


    I'm not picky about my foods though. Throw me the above-mentioned any day and I'll gobble them up all the same. OM NOM NOM

    Badly made squid I can see. Some proper nice squid rings though are things I will seek out.

    Tomatoes.
    A normal tomato I could not choke down. The other side of things is more unpleasant for me and all concerned.

    Mutton.
    I much prefer lamb myself and if you are used to that I can see why you might not care for mutton.

    Eating Cereal WITH Milk: Yes I'm the only one in the world that eats cereal without milk.
    [​IMG] Hate that green vegetable in the picture. Tastes so bitter. I don't know the English name for it, I know it only in Japanese.
    Pickles: I really hate pickles. Always take it out of my burgers.

    Really tricky , i stuggled to find anything i dislike. I guess Mussels / oysters and the like , the textures more than the flavours , but i can handle crab/lobster prawns.. oh and poached salmon , and some sushi.

    Love fish though .

    Used to hate mushrooms and some still are a bit bland and rubbery , but cooked right and served right i dont mind them anymore.

    I forgot
    I have issues eating any kind of overly messy or greasy foods, ie. Ribs, Fried Chicken, Pizzas from certain pizza places. And it's not that I don't like these kinds of foods, it's just I have this OCD about keeping myself 100% clean 24/7. I usually just cut the meat away from the bones, but sometimes that's difficult as fuck ._.

    Peas taste nasty, no matter how you prepare them. Fucking peas.

    Can't stand pickles, I have no idea how anyone can eat them. I used to like them as a kid apparently, but now they just taste like poisoned death.

    I have met plenty of people that go for cereal without milk or with the absolutely minimum milk possible. Expand that to people eating cereal with yoghurt or margarine/butter (on things like shredded wheat or weetabix).

    I had never seen that vegetable before that I know of. I looked it up and I am slightly curious now.

    On pickles. They join the "foods that America can not seem to get right" list. Parts of the world where pickling is a long practised affair (so most of northern Europe) and I will eat them by the tub.

    Honestly that's a big reason why I don't like eating a lot of meats. I don't like the bone and the fat/gristle on them. And to me, a boneless chicken just has a much better taste and texture than a chicken that is bbq'd.
