Even if you tried it a billion times, sometimes you just can't stomach a certain kind of food. So when Reddit user u/cloudtdaz asked: "What food have you tried liking but just can’t?" plenty of people had opinions. Here's what said below:

1."Black licorice. I've accepted my DNA just can't stand the stuff."

2."Peeps, the Easter sugared candy. I like to think I can digest anything covered in sugar BUT NOT THAT."

3."Wine. Every year I'll try it around the holidays with family and it's still gross."

4."Olives. I've tried many varieties. I always try them because they look like they'd be good but they're just not."

5."I know this is a drink, but sparkling water. I like some flavors, but I can’t stand that after taste. Bleh."

11."Grape-Nuts. I hated them as a kid but as an adult I decided to try them again, thinking maybe my tastebuds had matured by then. Nope. They were still just as awful as I remembered."

12."Overnight oats. They're basically lumpy, cold snot in my throat first thing in the morning. I gag just thinking about adding chia seeds."

15."Any kind of mushroom, it's not the texture — there is always a taste that I can't do for some reason."


"The difference between raw and cooked mushrooms is wild to me. Cooked mushrooms, I’ll eat with a spoon. Raw mushrooms somehow taste as if styrofoam could go stale."


16."Watermelon. I try it again when someone says, 'OMG, this is the best watermelon,' and I can tell that it's good watermelon but I still very much dislike it. I really wish I did enjoy it."

17."Raw oysters."

18."Most definitely Brussel Sprouts. I've tried them in so many forms and yet I still hate them."

19."Spicy food. Never have been able to eat it."
