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.

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.

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.
