Tomatoes and papaya!
Y'all probably think I am crazy, but I can't stand the earthy flavor of tomatoes. And I've tried papaya twice now and may be willing to do it again, but I can't take more than one or two bites....then yuck!
Broccoli (i wish i liked it!)
It's funny because I always assumed that I had either tasted poor quality durian, or that it wasn't the same when frozen/thawed/blended in a smoothie. It always just tasted kind of like sweet, overcooked onion to me. Not terrible, not fantastic, and ultimately not worth it.
Recently, though, I was really excited because I had the opportunity to try it fresh of the tree. I took a big wiff once it was cut open and actually enjoyed the smell, so I got even more excited. And while I'll admit for the first 2 seconds of the experience the taste was heavenly, I could have sworn I'd eaten a huge old fistful of rotten onions that had been sitting around in the compost for a few weeks. Such a devastating experience :(.
It was weird though, because it didn't seem like the fruit itself that was the problem...but some sort of gas it was emitting. Like, I could taste all the tropical goodness on my tongue but there was some sort of overwhelming rotten onion gas filling the rest of my mouth, my throat and my nasal cavity.
Oh well, at least I don't have to worry about having fallen in love with a fruit unavailable here in Aus lol.
exactly...i had them once and i skipped my next meal coz of that :-(
it was terrible experience with fruit second time....it was 4 persimmons for dinner the first time, i cudnt sleep for hours and puked hard...god it was so relaxing after that...may be persimmons i bought were infected but i swore that day never to eat them again.
also sight of steamed brocolli & brussel sprouts disgusts me...i just cant look at the plate...some food arent for my stomach.
I like mangos, but I hate cutting them. The sound of the knife on the pit is like nails on a chalk board to me for some reason.
