Facebook is full of interesting stories, ain’t it! Last week I read a status update about someone who couldn’t drink water. WATER! This chicky-babe was receiving counselling about her relationship with water and learning how to drink it.
Then another story popped up about a friend of mine who hates watermelon. One of the most delicious summer fruits to ever exist.
Sure, we are all unique and oh-so-spesh. Our taste buds control what we like and don’t like and I recently discovered that our genetics play a big part in this. What our parents dislike eating is often a dislike we have as well. Especially bitter tastes! Almost everyone lacks the ability to detect at least one scent, meaning the chemical that gives blue cheese that gross odour might repulse you or delight you. Or maybe you’re among the 25% of peeps that can’t smell it at all. Lucky bitches!
You can pass me a box of tissues if I rock up to a picnic and there is mayonnaise in the potato salad. Oh yeah! Ten outta ten cry factor. My taste buds despise mayo!
So it got me thinking about foods (and drinks) we can’t stand. I’m talking the thought of seeing it or smelling it repulses you into oblivion. I asked some of you on Facebook about foods you hate and the responses were … well, entertaining!
Celery – every salad needs celery
Beetroot – HATE IT!
Liver – HATE IT!
Goats cheese – my favourite cheese
Mushrooms – Hated them as a kid but love them now
Jaegermeister – JaegerBomb anyone?
Vegemite – BIGGEST HATE OF ALL!!!
Yogurt – HATE IT!
Capsicum – my pizza ain’t complete without this baby on top of it
So, what other foods do I love to hate? These make me gag; Peanut Butter, Tomato Sauce (ketchup), Oysters, smelly Cheese & Yogurt
I wished I liked YOGURT! But the smell, oh that smell. I’d rather stick a syringe of tomato sauce in my eye than smell yogurt.
Over to you ….. what foods are you grossed out by?
