as someone who loves food, i've been hesitant to write this post.
but as someone who loves food, it's important to understand one's palette.
some of the foods that i am about to list will be controversial.
they're very beloved by most people.
and to those of you that love these atrocities, i apologize.
but these foods are truly repugnant to me.
i hate mayo more than any other food.
the way it smells, the way it looks, the way it tastes.
if a sandwich comes with it after i have ordered its removal i won't eat it.
don't believe me? ask nelzo.
he's dealt with this lovely idiosyncrasy for years.
2. baked beans
the sliminess and graininess=gag reflect.
i usually create a dam around them so they don't overflow near my tacos.
3. baked beans candy
there is no way these are good.
and i refuse to try them.
salmon, potatoes, bread dip, etc.
its way too powerful.
you put it on anything and all you taste is dill.
and yes i know pickles are cucumbers fermented.
i don't like them.
not sweet, and obviously, not dill.
way too tart, makes my lips pucker just thinking about them.
i know people put sugar on them, but i'm against adding sugar to fruit.
after all, fruit is nature's candy.
except grapefruit which is nature's boston baked beans.
my grandmother makes a lamb that looks better than this each easter and it pains me.
how can something that looks so impressive taste so gamey and chewy?
i swear i hear a very quiet baaaa when i eat my few polite bites each year.
and no, it doesn't taste like beef.
and this is not candy, nor is it a treat.
and the grosssest thing?
that people order marzipan babies for showers?
9. lima beans
i.e. the vegetable 90% of the population hates
i like sprouts, especially roasted with some good olive oil and sea salt.
but lima beans cannot be improved.
i've tried adding lots of butter and salt and they still taste like lima beans.
gritty, squishy and just blah.
10. olive loaf
just looking at this picture makes me want to vom.
i refuse to justify this hate.
what foods do you hate?
