Post pictures of food that tastes disgusting
>Exposure, plain and simple. Scientists tell us that aversions fade away when we eat moderate doses of the hated foods at moderate intervals, especially if the food is complex and new to us. (Don't try this with allergies, but don't cheat either: few of us have genuine food allergies.) Exposure works by overcoming our innate neophobia, the omnivore's fear of new foods that balances the biological urge to explore for them. Did you know that babies who are breast-fed will later have less trouble with novel foods than those who are given formula? The variety of flavors that make their way into breast milk from the mother's diet prepares the infant for the culinary surprises that lie ahead. Most parents give up trying novel foods on their weanlings after two or three attempts and then complain to the pediatrician; this may be the most common cause of fussy eaters and finicky adults--of omnivores manqués. Most babies will accept nearly anything after eight or ten tries.
I think this is basically true.
Except Ive tried these filthy little fuckers 10-15 times and still cannot stand them.
I know people like them but its some combination of the flavor and texture that gets me. I can drink strawberry soda fine.
Not sure if its this one. The stems are more red and green.
You must have tree bark for taste buds because your taste in food is absolutely shit. Maybe it would taste good if you took your tongue out of the planets asshole, wash the dirt out of your mouth and get back into the reality of food.
Most of what's been posted is objectively wrong, but this triggered me.
Here is some actually disgusting food. I mean, it is even the most disgusting part of an animal.
Whoever thought of this flavor combination deserves a special place in hell.
>tfw you believe that
People's taste buds vary, but only rarely does someone taste something that's different from what you taste. What influences taste are your thoughts and memories of previous foods and their comparative taste. I would know because I'm smart and use a lot of big words.
I can eat them but they're like bitter herbs, it's just not tasty at all.
I'll eat anything if prepared the right way, but I think soups and stews are disgusting. The entire premise is DOA, so there's no preparing them correctly in my mind. Looks like vomit and has the texture of vomit. And if you buy fresh vegetables and meat with the intention of making soup, I wish a painful death upon you. Soups are meant for ingredients past their prime. You should have made a stir fry or something else instead.
to be honest I ate the lot,
I had 2 normal and 2 battered sausages, 2 saveloys, god knows how many chips, a cod fishcake of some kind (i think) and a faggot.
[spoiler]some of this was shared with my wife[/spoiler]
What is that one vegetable the chinese use in everything? I worked in the kitchen for a chinese food place for a little while and this rancid smell was everywhere. I almost had to quit because of it. It made the food it was in taste just as bad too.
I dont think its bok choy
Pic related is fucking nasty. I haven't tried a brand that was good.
how dare you insult pasta
your days are numbered
Anything with this """"flavor""""
fuck you hot tamales are delicious
years of eating them during movies has built up my cinnamon tolerance to the point where I can pretty much chug fireball without issues
>le science meme
The influence of the gene is minuscule. It means you can taste an extra flavor within cilantro which might taste unpleasant at first until you get used to it. It does not bar you from being able to like cilantro, not even close.
The actual data on this, not the Wowzer Science Fact it turned into, has something like people who dislike cilantro being very slightly more likely to have the gene than those who do like cilantro. Wow, it's fucking nothing!
Personal anecdote: I hated cilantro as a kid. It tasted like dish soap. As I kept trying it I gradually began to find it okay, then nice, then great. These days I love the stuff. It still tastes kind of soapy but in a delicious way. I also used to dislike coffee, beer, dark chocolate, liver, eggplant. Foods with weird unusual flavors. After trying them a number of times I convinced my brain that the weird taste was not poison, and I got to like all of them.
Cilantro is no different, it's just a funny tasting herb that maybe some people have to try a little harder to get into. You're not a special fucking snowflake, it isn't written in your gene code that you can never enjoy cilantro. Don't get sucked in by shitty false overblown presentations of very weak correlations.
>lol good joke
>wait, that doesn't look shopped
>it's fucking real
Crickets. But chocolate covered crickets are pretty ok if you can stomach the crunch.
Here's a recipe online
Chocolate Covered Crickets
1 cup roasted crickets (see recipe for Dry Roasted Crickets)
1 cup chocolate chips
>There are people on this board who actually enjoy eating literal moisture
Real talk doe, that shit is gross how do you guys it eat. What kind of nutrients does it have that makes consuming these horrible things worth eating?
These two along with pumpkin are the only three vegetables I legitimately can't stand. I'm sorry, I've tried, it's just unpalatable. I'd happily eat whatever you've dug out of the sea this time, garnished with cheese that's more mould than actual cheese, but I draw the line at plain pumpkin and olives.
Pumpkin is ok in soup and stuff though, just not raw or baked by itself.
Olives can fuck right off.
Eggplant is just wrong.
You arent trying. Olives are fucking beautiful but the flavour is subtle and you'll easily be put off by your expectations.
Try them with good white bread and dont eat anything for a good few hours before hand. Make sure they arent revolting, pickled shits for cocktails.
I'll eat just about anything. Fuck I'm from Maryland and soft shell crab is to Maryland what Olives are for greeks, and none of my old military buddies who visit can even bring themselves to trying it. Tomatoes are GOAT, can't do liver by itself but it's amazing fried and put on a pastrami sandwich, asparagus smells like shit but tastes great, I drink IPA beers and my coffee black.
The only thing I can't stand is raw onions. You fry them or sautee them and I'll eat them on steaks, burgers, by itself you name it. Just can't touch those bitches raw at all.
Not liking raisins (especially in baking) is the mark of a child because raisins usually replace chocolate chips, which means there's less sugar. Adults have no problem with this, but children throw a fit if the sugar level is dropped.
My mother loves beets, I cannot stand them.
My slavic forefathers are looking down on me in shame.
How could someone honest to god think this was a good idea??
Olives are repugnant
I have grown out of so much food disliking and enjoyed their flavors
I can ignore them but I hate olives
Gob bless olive oil tho
Watch out for this shit
I wish it tasted more like water
Exactly. They're like rude interruptions as you try to eat the baked good
I understand why someone would dislike these, but have you tried sweet olives? I couldn't stand regular olives at first, but i loved the taste of sweet ones, and gradually started liking regular ones because of that.
My grandma taught me this recipe for sweet olives:
1 KG of fresh, seedless olives (preferably green)
1 Liter of water
800 grams of sugar
4 garlic cloves
2 green peppers
And a large Weck Jar
Rinse the olives thoroughly and let them leak out for a while. Cut the onions into extremely thin rings, and push out the middle bits of these rings. Crush the garlic with a garlic press, and cut the peppers in thin cubes.
Throw all ingredients in a large pan (water and sugar first), mix all ingredients in and let it cook for about 7 minutes, until the olives are somewhat soft. Put the olives in the weck jar and cover them with the cooking liquid until the pot is full. Let the pot cool down and put it in the fridge for two days.
Pic related is the only thing i absolutely detest. I've tried them multiple times, all in great restaurants, but I can't swallow, let alone chew them.
have kilpatrick style
just make it yourself it's super easy and cheaper
go heavy on the worcestershire sauce
i dislike most seafood and don't even have the balls to try fresh oysters but I fuckin love kilpatrick oysters
Half the things my Korean gf gets me to try.
I swear Koreans will eat anything below sea level.
She got me to eat literally tiny cooked fish in a bag. She said "it doesn't taste like fish!". It tasted exactly how I thought tiny fish in a bag would taste.
>I swear Koreans will eat anything below sea level.
Oh fuck I feel somewhat threatened now
This. How anyone can like it is beyond me.
grilled aubergines with yoghurt and mint are good
Personally, I don't like cheese very much.
Usually, I don't mind if the dish has only a little bit of cheese. But I can't stand how it seems like Americans (and other cuisines, too, particularly Mexican) like to put tons and tons of cheese on everything. White cheese, yellow cheese, cheese derivatives, I just can't.
And while I do like cheeseburgers, I sometimes feel the cheese takes away from the flavor of the beef and crisp vegetables and sauce, so I usually just prefer a hamburger.
I don't get this, they're expensive and they DO. NOT. Taste good. They can be consumed without gagging if you wrap them in a thick layer of sauce and seasoning, but then why are you even wasting your sauce and seasoning on that nasty shit anyway?
Same principal as clams and escargot. Fuck all these shellder and cloyster redneck bitch foods
like nigga she's not gonna fuck you just because you ate the $100 snails
I N E D I B L E
Even thinking of the smell makes me want to throw up
Natto is not disgusting conceptually, but I feel it belongs in the thread. I like it somewhat. I'm varying degrees of allergic to a lot of things, dairy being one, natto fills the void of cheese. On crispy fried rice with leek or onion, when I'm cold and hungry, not bad! Full, warm, and tired... do not want.
mushrooms seemed gross to me until i started thinking of them as bizzaro potatoes
its gross if you see them as little slimy & chewy tire strips wriggling down your throat
but if you instead see them as something with a skin and interior they become amazing
enter the mush room zone
me and honey are just not going to become friends in this life. i have an enormous sweet tooth but i just cant enjoy it.
>loved meat since forever
>particularly a nice steak
>last friday got same carry-out from the same place been going to for years
>meat suddenly looks like a slab of fat
>gave to le cat
>do not want red meat
>a few days later
>see ribs roasting on TV
>looks like a human
>do not want
And literally just like that after happily consuming some fine cuts I can't stand the thought of red meat. (Veal, however, remains to be seen.)
WTF is wrong with me?
I can't believe it. I honestly can't.
>really good steak
>mexican flavored shit
>good hamburgers (I am American after all)
It's honestly like a switch turned off in my brain. The last time this happened was when I smelled bad shrimp and I didn't eat it for two years. The time before that was when I quit smoking and that's lasted almost 10. But hell. . .steak?
I'm going to have to turn in my Texan card.
Can't think of anything else at the moment. Plain cheese is also pretty disgusting
