    Lima Beans.  I lived with my aunt and uncle when I was a teen and all they asked is that I eat one lima bean as I hadn't tried a lot of different foods.  One single lima bean isn't a lot to ask--but it was huge for me. I hid it in my milk. 

    In retrospect, they would have saved themselves a lot of grief and me too if they had just let it go.  I learned to eat all that stuff as an adult - ok not lima beans - but other foods I wouldn't eat as a kid.

    Parsley.....I know you are thinking that's strange because parsley has no flavour or taste.  As an adult I learned that it wasn't parsley but instead CILANTRO.  Ahh, it all makes sense now.

    Liver and I still can't stand the smell of it to this day.  My mother used to make me eat even if I vomited it up and then go back and eat more. Yucccccck.  That is one item you will not find in my house EVER.

    tomato soup, and I still hate it. I can't stand the smell, the texture, the look, or anything about it. I will be sick at the sight of it.

    Cooked broccolli....the smell of it still makes me gag to this day.  Mom only made me eat it twice, both times I vomited. She decided I wasn't faking it the 2nd time. The strangest thing though is that eating it raw has no effect on me.

    I hated eating mushrooms as a child. I hated eating mushrooms as a teen. As an adult I still detest mushrooms!

    I hated swedes - I think they are called rutabagas in the U.S.  We used to get them in school lunch and everyone hated them. There were always loud noises of disgust from all the kids when we saw them.  The catering staff used to chop them up with carrots to try to prevent us avoiding them, and we all used to spend ages fishing out the carrots and leaving the swede behind in a little heap.  I don't know why they didn't just give up and stop buying them. I've never met anyone in my life who likes them.

    I hated all forms of pasta because my mother didn't know how to cook it properly.
    I also hated spinach and watermelon- and won't eat it now, either.

    Anything made by Chef Boyardee. Truly atrocious poison masquerading as food.

      I definitely agree.

      You're right - I'd forgotten Chef Boyardee - not just the food but that inane jingle on the commercials - "meatballyallyally, Chef Boyar-Boyadee" That was a form of torture smile

    my mom used to make this chinese chop suey that I despised....it had scrambled hamburg in a dark sauce with bean sprouts, chinese celery, water chestnuts and peppers and she would serve it over white rice. The bean sprouts would make me gag...lol! I still won't eat it!

    Lima Beans, Kidney Beans, and liver.  To this day I still don't like these three foods!

    My least favorite food as a young girl was cooked spinach. It was slimy and gooey and it was not pleasantly aromatic. Now eons later, I am huge fan of spinach. I like it raw and cooked. Two of my favorite treats are spinach pie and spinach pizza. Yum. Thank you. NOW, I want some.  big_smile

      both of my kids have always loved spinach.  I used to buy & cook it for them, but would never touch it myself!

    I have to say I hated brussel sprouts the most as a child.  My grandmother would make me eat the horrendous vegetables.  But, would you believe as an adult I now like eating brussel sprouts now. It is amazing how our taste-buds change as we get older.
