#2 I know this is a drink, but sparkling water. I like some flavors, but I can’t stand that after taste. Bleh
#3 Blue cheeses
#4 IPAs and stouts.
I went to a restaurant that served all the types of durian on a platter, all the way up to musang king. Hated every bite.
My fellow Asians judge me for hating it, but I refuse to be shamed. My American palate won’t let me like it.
There’s a reason they’re banned on public transport in Asia.
#6 Black licorice. I’ve accepted my DNA just can’t stand the stuff.
#7 Beer, of any kind. It always makes me very nauseous.
#8 Kombucha, smells like stinky feet and taste like vinegar to me.
#9 okra. liver and onions.
#10 Olives. I’ve tried many varieties. I always try them because they look like they’d be good but they’re just not.
#11 Intestines/innards of any kind and solid portions of fat on meat. One of my husband’s favorite dishes is barbequed intestines (Japanese barbecue) and I can smell its appeal, but I physically can’t deal with the texture. And it really saddens me because I’ve always wanted to eat menudo and I know the soup is bomb AF ?. I think I have some sort of fat/chewy PTSD from when I was forced to eat gristle off of meat as a kid.
#12 Matcha ! Just tastes like grass to me
#13 Octopus. The texture just isn’t for me. I want to like it. The flavor is fine, just can’t get over the chewing experience.
#14 Wine. Every year I’ll try it around the holidays with family and it’s still gross
#15 Beets. I just can’t.
#16 Liver the smell alone makes me sick.
#17 Most definitely Brussel Sprouts. I’ve tried them in so many forms and yet I still hate them.
#18 Lamb. I tried… really
#19 Caviar .
The salty /fishy /cold/ bubble tea texture combo makes me retch . Smoked salmon too – I’m a terrible one for cold fishy amuse-bouche.

#20 Tofu. I’m trying to be more health conscious and environmentally friendly with my eating habits. I’ve tried tofu several different ways, but haven;t found a flavor/style I like enough to keep eating.
#21 Raw oysters.
#22 Overnight oats. They’re basically lumpy, cold snot in my throat first thing in the morning. I gag just thinking about adding chia seeds.
#24 Peeps, the Easter sugared candy. I like to think I can digest anything covered in sugar BUT NOT THAT….
#25 I can’t drink egg nog. Every year I give it a shot and try to like it, but I just can’t.
