This is a question World's Most Hated Food

What food do you hate the most? And why? Do brussel sprouts make you hurl? Can't stand the pea? Think baked-beans are the work of satan? Tell us, and tell us now.

"hot and sour soup"
dear god in heaven. that stuff is wrong.
i was presented with it in what has to be described as a somewhat sketchy chinese in toronto (i dunno, i thought it would be "urban"). it was a precursor to the main while we waited.

the "restaurant" should have put me off by the massive smell of fish due to the giant tank of dirty lobsters at the back. and also, on the door as you went in, a laminated sign saying "we have NOT failed a health inspection" or some such thing.

so we get these little bowls of orange goo. it is sticky like glue and has the consistency of too-thick gravy ceptwith this i-contain-horses-bones consistency. and its got chunks in. some strips and some chunks and some bits... they're all white-ish and soft. texture of tofu but with a more suspicious shape.

so i think, "c'mon, live a little" (not sure why i was giving myself a pep talk to eat this stuff but hey) and i try it. and its so wrong. i get one of those waves of nausea that starts just after, (am actually getting one now) where you know youre gonna heave and you think youre gonna hurl. and actually in my head i begin thinking that the little bowl wont be big enough to hold my vomit. and i begin looking around for where to boke as the wave gradually overcomes me.

luckily i only heaved. hurrah. :D

i dont know if this "hot and sour" soup is something they have everywhere but sweet god it's wrong.

p.s. kippers too. smell is like death.

Turning things back towards the nature of previous questions, i once went down on a girl at Uni who tasted, and smelt, like boiled ham. I think that that perhaps qualifies as my "most hated food".

In a similar vein i have a friend who made the mistake of going down on a girl on the last day of a four day music festival (gasp!). The next day he was constantly aware of a rank fishy smell and his friends gave him a few funny looks but didn't say anything. When he got home later that evening he discovered that his beard was entirely caked in white discharge. He still happily refers to it this as "the tale of the father christmas beard" though i'm sure he regards this as the worst thing he's ever "eaten".

p.s Mezzo is the best.

Just plain wrong
SEAWEED, I mean what skumsucking fuckbastard decided when walking along the beach to pick up a handful of green slimey shite and say "oh im gonna take this home fry it and eat it?".
Was fed it once when much younger, made me wretch for about 3 days.

I think this question
is covered well here

Edit: I've just seen Russtavo's comment. In Germany they have a drink called Mezzo Mix. It's a brown fizzy drink that has the weirest aftertaste you can imagine. Turns out it's cola and orange juice. Who the hell came up with the idea of mixing cola and orange juice? Then again, the Germans also have two types of shandy, one with lemonade as god intended (Radler) and one with cola (Diesel). Diesel is well-named. I think the EU should add something to its new constituion banning the mixing of cola with any other drink.

not only does it look like frog spawn, but it also tastes like shit.

Was once forced to eat it by my mum, she stuck it in my mouth (I think I was about 8 at the time) made me swallow this horrible milky goo and I promply regurgated it all over her lap.

Serves you right you silly cow, don't try to get me to eat something I don't LIKE

Fizzy Colgate
It's all in the mind see - I used to really enjoy Root beer, until some helpful minge shared their theorum that it tastes like TOOTHPASTE. Now the thought of it coming anywhere near me makes me gag. Just thought I'd share that... I think a job in the Barq's PR department looms.

Bird Shit
I know it's not technically food, but..I was running about as a kid, typically with my mouth wide open and suddenly got this vile, bitter, greasy taste in my mouth. I spat it out and saw it was a glob of bird shit!

I guess you have to admire the bird's aim..all the same though, fucking hell.

Chicken Korma
Looks and tastes exactly the same going down your throat as it does coming back up again.

Goat Curry. Tried it once and just got a huge mouthful of fat, gagged and unfortunately spat it back in to the pot it was cooking in. Didn't tell 'em, just let 'em eat it...povs.

I have nothing personal against celery; dipped in hummus, it's lovely.

The idea of making fizzypop out of it, on the other hand, is scary.

Natural flavor? Wossat then?

Any "meat" pie from Australia
Where it seems it is perfectly acceptable to include large knots of tendon and chunks of gristle. I know that in eating meat pies, worldwide, you are generally recieving mystery meat and have to assume full responsibility for eating such foul foodstuff, but Australians appear to relish the "suprise" of tucking into a steak pie and discovering it's 90% cartilage. Their fruit is delicious though.

Quick message to Lord Monkey:
There is a Brown Wizard in Lord of the Rings. If I remember correctly, his name was Radagast and it was he who sent the eagle to rescue Gandalf from Saruman's tower.
He doesn't appear in the film, tho'.*

*Not that I noticed, anyway.

BTW, Marmite is good but, as mentioned elsewhere, not when eaten by the spoonfull!

[edit: posting this makes me sound like a right geek!]

Basically cos I don't like food that tastes as though it's been vomited once already.
I did get this announced live on Radio 2 when they had a phone-in on the same subject.
Sadly, I was rather proud of this.

Zoo Sandwiches
I once bought a sandwich from a petrol station that tasted like a zoo.

The aroma was more elephant-house-hay-and-dung than heated-snake-turd-and-stagnant-water-funk-of-a-reptile-hothouse. Incredibly evocative really. Amazing how they can conjure childhood nostalgia of rainy days impersonating gibbons through the medium of an egg sandwich.

Anything bought from a petrol station...
...especially sandwiches, pasties and microwave your own burgers. Can't believe I've tried them all

Vegemite is not horrible. It's just that most non-aussies don't know how to eat it. Someone mentioned a SPOONFUL of the stuff *shudder*. You just put a little bit, just a little, on buttered toast. It's great.

(can you tell I'm an aussie?)

On topic, most seafood makes me want to hurl. If it smells fishy, I can't eat it... ;-)

damn, that came out wrong.

Canned Mixed Vegtables
Exactly (and I'd really like to hear from the geniuses that thought up this crap) what in the fuck posessed someone to can, together, mind you, mushy peas, carrots that are hard as rocks, and some form of alien green bean (and its cousin, the almost unrecognizable white-ish kinda sorta bean, the pack it all in some weird semi-clear juice that, well, smells like ass? Fuck canned mixed vegtables. Things just go awry when one doesn't properly screen the veggies before cramming 'em all in a can.
Oh, and I really don't like bananas that have gone to a brown-ish, squishy phase. Or when they are green. There seems to be a three-minute window when these tools of the devil are OK for consumption. Yet, I'm never home during that window of banana opportunity, and thus am a bitter, sad man.

That stuff is disgusting. It stinks, it burns your mouth for no reason whatsoever, and here in American you can't buy a decent apple pie without it!
I made apple pie once - you know, properly, served it with custard - friends and boyf said "Where's the cinammon?"

cheese milk and fish are the only foods i can think of which taste mouldy when they're still fresh

mushrooms and peanut butter are both superb though, you freaks. every saturday after work (sainsbury's) i buy a tray thing of mushrooms and eat them raw

i've also been known to peel onions and eat them like apples, that's quite painful though

Wagon Wheels...
It might not sound like much, but I was MADE to eat two of the bastards for my pudding one night even though I didn't want to. They just didn't smell right to me at the best of times, and I was only seven. They don't still make them, do they...?

I can no longer eat rhubarb after a terrible incident involving rhubarb pie while visiting my grandmother when I was about 10. She'd made some, I loved it, and ate a little too much. No problem, normally. But apparently, rhubarb can sour in your stomach. Cue me vomiting all over the bathroom -- the floor, the sink, the toilet (after awhile), and the door (which impressed me a little).
Had a similar experience with fried chicken. I was too young to remember, but I still can't eat it.
I'm also allergic to tree nuts and if I eat a single, say, pecan, I'll go into shock and die. Consequently, I read alot of food labels, which isn't such a bad thing.

Angel food cake.
You know the one. It's supposed to be super-spongy or somesuch.

In reality it just takes like a really, really sickly sweet kitchen sponge, and has a horrible texture that makes it feel like you're trying to chew through a mass of partially-woven cotten.

Er. Not that I've ever eaten a kitchen sponge or partially-woven cotton.

Second only to marmite in the worlds list of crap foodstuffs of all time.
1) it tastes like cardboard.
2) it looks like cardboard until cooked, then it looks like soggy cardboard.
3) it is boring, like cardboard.
4) Pasta lasts forever in the back of cupboards, like cardboard.
5) when you're a student you spend three years eating this shit because you can't afford anything else, like cardboard.
6) the last time I ate in an Italian restaurant (one in York) it gave me food poisoning for three days, and then I split up with the girl I'd been with for three years, the same thing happened the last time I ate cardboard as well.
7) Pasta, invented by the Devil as a way of punishing the Holy Roman Empire (now Italy) just like cardboard.
8) If someone throws some pasta in your eye it really hurts, just like cardboard.
9) Parmesan cheese, whats that all about? it looks like grated cardboard and tastes like ming.
however I do like marzipan coated pork scratchings served on a bed of roast parsnip and asparagus, with a celery,mushroom and cucumber salad,rabbit pie and swede and turnip followed by a nice big bowl of trifle/rice pudding or more marzipan.
