What is the worst tasting food you have ever tried? The one thing you would prefer to never have to eat again? When I was little, my Mom made me try liver. It was disgusting, in my opinion, and ever since then, I will not try it unless I absolutely have to.

I'm really picky, and eat everything plain, so it's a major production to get me to try anything new... but a few years ago, some people persuaded me to try shrimp. I don't like seafood in general, but I have been known to eat the occasional fishstick. Now, I must state that I consider things like shrimp, crab, and lobsters to be nothing more than aquatic spiders, so getting me to stray off my food path and into the realm of insect-like food was a huge deal. We were in a restaurant, and the shrimp was served naked and meant to be dipped in butter. People were grabbing them with little forks, plunging them into a butter bath, then MMmmMmming like it was the rapture. I figured what the heck, it probably tastes like nothing more then melted butter. I tried to "taste" a fishstick dipped in butter in my mind... those two flavors didn't go together in my head, but I decided to try the shrimp anyway. I thought it would be tender and soft, and buttery. Instead, when I bit down into the shrimp, it popped. It was snappy. It was like chewing on a piece of greasy Styrofoam that had been dipped in bait. I was thoroughly grossed out. I'm never eating anything of the sort again.

I love liver especially when it's fried or grilled. I hate bittermelon. My dad had me try it when I was four and I have never eaten it since then.

I am with you on the liver.....can't stand the stuff....cooked beets are right up there too....I think they taste like dirt. Also I am not big on any seafood.....but like you once again....Liver is probably number one on my list too!

Noo liver is good food ,you just have to acquire the taste .On the other hand though I have never quite gotten the taste of turnip ,it always taste bitter to me .My friends say it is because I have cooked it properly and this may be true as I dont cook it often.Liver is good though ,you should try it again ,maybe your childlike tatse buds did not acquite the taste just yet .Just be open minded and try it again,using a lot of onions and natural seaona

Umm...a baked bulb of garlic. I was at a restaurant, and I thought they were scallops. That was a big mistake. D:
