When we were children, there were certain foods that even the mention of made us gag more than a little bit.

Broccoli, anchovies, mushrooms, you name it!

But then, as adults, we might discover that these foods are not revolting as we remembered them to be.

In fact, we might discover that we actually like them.

But even after growing out of our picky eating habits, there are likely still some foods that we still try to avoid eating whenever possible.

Redditor ohwowwhatfun was curious to hear all the foods the Reddit community never developed a taste for, leading them to ask:

"Which food item do you continue to hate even as an adult?"


There's a limit to what part of the animal I will eat...

"When we were kids, my mom said we could each choose one main dish that we didn't like, and if she served that she'd make something else for us."

"Mine was liver, which was one of my dad's favorites."

"I thought it was so gross."

"Recently my wife said she wanted to try it, so we made some."

"Nope, still exactly as gross as I thought it was when I was 8."- Fleaslayer

There's a reason they don't offer it at Starbucks.

"Koomis."

"AKA fermented horse milk."

"I mean - growing up in Kazakhstan, it was okay as a child, but I didn't take to it like the other kids and it just doesn't stack up to a good PB&J with the crusts cut off."- YouPeopleHaveNoSense

No cassoulet for me!

"Lima beans."

"Nasty little chalk pellets - NO, MOM, I’M NOT EATING THEM!!!"- OldBob10

Never trust blue, or 'bleu', food...

"Blue cheese once almost made me throw up from nearly the smell alone."

"I had it in a burger and the first bite I took i immediately lost my appetite."

"To top it off i had covid , I wasn’t supposed to taste or smell anything but blue cheese doesn’t seem to obey that rule ."- Noirrr_

It's crunchy, but not much else...

"Celery."

"I understand why it's important in soups and stuff, but god I hate it."- some-girl-online

Some people are literally born to hate it!

"Cilantro even tho it’s genetic."- AccomplishedWaltz802

They should be banned from all salads!

"Endives."

"Raw in a salad or baked with cheese."

"It's still an abomination."- Serge_Karamazov

People really eat this as a treat?

"Black Licorice flavor."

"How the hell does anyone under the age of 80 enjoy this hell spawn poison?"- Anjelikka

Who actually wants to eat a type of fungus?

"Mushrooms."

"I'm fascinated by them but I won't eat them."

"Unless they're magic."- GhettoSauce

No vegetable should be purple...

"Eggplant."- Suitable_Brain7650

Everyone has their preferences, and no one should have to eat any food that they don't like.

And more than likely, when you're out with a group of people, there's bound to be someone who will gladly eat your side of mushrooms.

As long as you'll eat their lima beans...

People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.

One last time. One last meal.

How do you chose a last meal?

Let's hope we never have to find out.

People on death row get that option.

Do they deserve it?

Whose to say?

But they have it.

A steak. A pizza... Burger King.

The food world is their oyster.

Oyster. Also an option.

The menu is endless...

But at the same time, friends evolve, and everyone finds themselves losing touch with any number of people they at one point considered their friends over time.

Most of the time, this isn't intentional, but just simply happens.

On rare occasions though, people might realize that their friends were not exactly who they thought they were, and didn't like who they revealed themselves to be.

When visiting any foreign country, one should always be familiar with the laws and customs of the land.

After all, what might be generally accepted on your home turf, might be frowned upon, if not illegal, elsewhere.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.
