I can relate to how different people have different tastes. I've had different tastes at different times. The most striking example of this was mint. I've had trouble with allergies in the past and liked to suck on a LOT of mints to help clear things out. One day, mint suddenly tasted entirely different and became the absolute nastiest thing. The taste difference was like night and day. I think I had maxed out on mint. Eventually, the taste of mint reverted back to its original clean taste. But every now and then, it shifts back to nasty. If one person can experience a single taste so differently, I can only imagine what the differences might be from one person to the next.

Years ago at a farmer's market in Anchorage, Alaska they were selling freshly picked and shelled peas by the scoopful. People were buying them to pop in their mouths raw as a snack. I bought some and they were amazing. I always liked peas, but those were the best ever.

I can relate to the cooking, when I was a kid I ate at my grandparents frequently, She was a good backer and cook but when it came to meat my shoe sole had more flavor

WOW these are some crazy responses!

It truly is very interesting how food can be experienced so differently to different people!

I used to not like peas either until it was just my mom's terrible cooking that made me not like them, lol.

Peas forgot about peas! BUT I have to admit I grew peas this summer and they were good. So now I know they have to be fresh.

I love avocado too, I can cut one in half and just eat it out of the skin, yum!

Wow, it must be tough not liking olive oil, it's everywhere.

I don't like olives. I bought mustard greens and didn't like them too much, they had a very strong bitter taste even when mixed with other food.

Mushrooms and beans are growing on me but they still not my favorite.

Olive oil. It was a pain when I lived in Italy because people would slime everything with it. I remember a Christmas dinner in La Basilicata when all the first 6 courses would have had olive oil in them. Eeessshhh! I understand the MODERATE health benefits from a SMALL amount but in terms of taste I'm just not a person who likes oily food. And taste-wise I prefer oils like sesame, rice bran and macadamia.

LOL you guys are funny Veganjaz, I feel the same way about Hemp Milk.

Evelyn and KoKo I love Rice Milk and Avocado. It's really funny how everyone's taste buds are so different.

The one thing I can't stand is Cauliflower it's tolerable raw but not cooked Ewwwww.

The first thing that came to mind was rice milk. I really wanted to like it because it's so cheap but not something I care for. Olives and capers are pretty much the only other things I don't like and even then if I can't taste them too much in a dish I'll eat them.

Is there a vegan-licious (just made up that word... lol) food that is either super SUPER good for you, that everyone else loves, etc, that you just hate!

Maybe other vegans or omnis raise an eyebrow when you say you don't like it?

The only reason I bring this up is because I have been TRYING to acquire a taste for hemp milk... but it is seriously the nastiest thing I have ever had in my life.

I even bought chocolate hemp milk to see if I can take that, and it was a big EW no way. And forget that stuff in coffee... ewww!

I know the stuff is full of wonderful EFA's but I can't handle it! Going to get them another way.
