    Black Licorice, or black jelly beans. Or Balut or Durian

    Cooked shell peas (love fresh and snap peas, and even split pea soup) fully ripe shell peas fresh or frozen are just Not Good though.

    Tripe is ok in Menudo the "day after". I'd agree with Balut, we almost made the mistake of buying that at the Maui farmers market instead of fresh eggs once. We also had Durian there, wasn't as bad as most people seem to think imho I actually like butter beans and brussel sprouts but you do have to cook them correctly (especially brussel sprouts which can be a sulfury mess otherwise) and black licorice is fantastic.

    Taste buds are funny old things.

    Cilantro, the Devil's weed. They have discovered that the aversion to cilantro is a genetic thing. Apparently my taste buds have evolved to be more attuned to poison than those of someone who likes cilantro.

    Also finally tried sushi a while back, and as I suspected, once was enough when it comes to eating raw fish.

    Cooked greens. Reminds me of the stuff floating in the cattle watering tank in the summer. Cant stand Salmon. My wife eats that stinking stuff and I have to leave the room.
    Either you like bacon or you are wrong.
