Hump Day Poll: Finicky Food Follies

Just looking at that picture makes me want to yarf.  Tomatoes and I'm assuming some kind of runny mayo?  No thank you.  

The slime in a tomato will make me wretch and if it touches my sandwich, I will be scraping and wiping until there's no trace.  People try to throw the whole "but you eat ketchup. tomato sauce and tomato soup" to which I say..." your point?"

What food makes you gag that others seem to love?

  1. I am not a fan at all of pickles on my sandwich or burger. Yet, I actually do like pickle spears by themselves. Oddly enough I find if you take the same pickle spear flavor and cut it round like the pickles you put on a sandwich - yarf!

  2. Boy, there are a lot that come to mind, which is sad. LOL Topping the list are beets, quinoa, sweet potatoes, capers, olives, grilled fruit, most seafood, and carmelized onions (love them cooked, but once it starts getting into the sweet phase where it's kind of syrupy, I'm out). For whatever reason my taste buds do not like sweet/savory together at all. And funny enough, I cannot stand ketchup on meatloaf -- love hamburgers with ketchup, but when I see meatloaf cooked with that strip of ketchup...blech.

  3. I like tomatoes, but they have to be really firm, like a day or two before truly ripe. Once they get soft at all they're only good for salsa or sauce.

    My motto is "nothing from the sea" (a quote from a tv show that I pretty much live by) but I think a lot of people don't like seafood.

    One really weird thing is that I don't like ketchup on hamburgers, but I do like ketchup with fries/tots.
