The tiniest slice ruins any meal. AIBU?
Do you have another suggestion?

Green peppers

Yanbu, it tastes of piss.

Ohhh, I love celery. Sprinkled with salt. With cheese on. Or a bit stalk of it in a Bloody Mary!

Anchovies, however, are revolting!

Mushrooms - little slimy pieces of horribleness 🤢🤮. Can sense them in any type of food, no matter how they are chopped/cooked

Coriander leaf. AKA washing up liquid.

Chilli. Why is it in everything at the moment?!

ABoozedMoose Sat 09-Feb-19 19:06:27

Baked beans

Raw onion. People seem insistent on sneaking it in to as many foods as possible and I bloody hate it. The taste of it taints everything else too. sad

Alcohol in my dessert, please no.

Mushrooms - little slimy pieces of horribleness

Amen to that. I’m vegetarian and get so sick of bloody mushrooms in everything. We’re expected to love them just because they’re vegetables 🙄 Does every meat eater love lamb or duck?

Decrepit geriatric fruity bastards.

Red peppers.

Contaminate everything they’ve been near.

I’m with the OP on celery also stop putting cucumber in my water, fine in a salad but putrid in water.

I like cooked celery, but it’s foul raw.

I despise chestnuts. They taint everything at Christmas!

DrMidgeryMargery Sat 09-Feb-19 19:10:16

Coriander leaves.
No. No. Thrice no.

Iownabigvase Sat 09-Feb-19 19:10:16

Another one for mushrooms.
They pollute any other food they're next to.

Raisins 🤢
Also yes to celery & mushrooms!

Variousartists Sat 09-Feb-19 19:11:18

Red peppers. I pick them out with my fork and collect them together on the side of the plate.

jackstini Sat 09-Feb-19 19:11:35

Lettuce - it never added anything to any dish
Makes bread soggy on sandwiches and tastes like gone off water

happylittletree Sat 09-Feb-19 19:11:48

Beetroot. I actually like it (when in the mood) but it contaminates everything it touches.

Same with truffle oil. Despise. In case anyone here doesn't know, the flavour is artificial.

Flev Sat 09-Feb-19 19:12:01

Raw tomatoes. Make any salad inedible.

ginghambox Sat 09-Feb-19 19:12:28

Garlic, the friend of bad cooks.

jacquesjacques Sat 09-Feb-19 19:12:33

Raw tomato - ruins a salad, guac or sandwich instantly and is in EVERYTHING.

PlainVanilla Sat 09-Feb-19 19:12:55

Another vote for raw onions. Recently I had lunch (buffet), there were raw onions or chopped raw leeks in almost all the salads and then a big tub of sliced, raw onion - presumably just in case you hadn't already had enough.

They ruin cake, scones and salads
