I've never eaten beetroot, cauliflower or pickled eggs.

What everyday food have you never eaten ?

Kebab, meatloaf, fried chicken, Hawaiian pizza, chicken korma...

Prawns, I just can't get past how they look.

All seafood apart from cod.

Peanut butter, tuna mayonnaise, marzipan, fruit cake. And lots more I'm sure!

Tuna!! I just can't bring myself to do it 🤷🏼‍♀️ I just hate the thought of it, and the smell, and the colour. I eat all other foods.

Scrambled egg but I don’t like any form of eggs really

Oysters. How can anybody bring themselves to put that mess in their mouth? I couldn't force myself to eat them.

Tomato ketchup. The smell makes me feel sick.

MondeoFan Sun 10-Jan-21 20:30:21

Iceberg lettuce

MondeoFan Sun 10-Jan-21 20:30:39

Oh and olives

Coriandersucks Sun 10-Jan-21 20:31:49

Raw tomatoes

I've never had a pickled egg - but I wouldn't really count them as normal.
Never had brains but I'd probably try a forkful for curiosity if they came my way.
Can't think of anything normal that i've never tried.

Dawninglory Sun 10-Jan-21 20:32:00

Sardines 🤢

Kittytheteapot Sun 10-Jan-21 20:32:22

Harissa paste

SagelyNodding Sun 10-Jan-21 20:33:04

Baked beans... Just the thought of it makes me feel ill envy

JustCallMeGriffin Sun 10-Jan-21 20:33:07

All seafood. I can't stand the smell so can't imagine I'd like the taste.

Curry (of any kind). Again the smell turns my stomach, plus even black pepper is too "hot" for me so can't see me liking the spices.

In fact there's probably loads. Not remotely adventurous with food much to my husband's annoyance (but clearly isn't a deal breaker after 20 years together).

zeitgeista Sun 10-Jan-21 20:33:57

and never had paté either

likeamillpond Sun 10-Jan-21 20:34:49

I've never had a Smoothie and have no intention of ever having one.
They sound disgusting.
Give me a Milkshake any day.

Floralnomad Sun 10-Jan-21 20:34:54

Baked beans , pickled onion ( or eggs ) , gherkins, oysters, mussels .

PhantomErik Sun 10-Jan-21 20:36:26

Any meat or fish.

I've been vegetarian since birth.

Don't think I've ever tried celeriac, it doesn't really appeal.

ShowOfHands Sun 10-Jan-21 20:36:42

Scrambled eggs or hard boiled eggs (I eat them poached though)

If we include drinks too...

Alcohol bar a sip of gin last year
Anything fizzy (never tried coke or lemonade or any other carbonated drink)
