I could actually thing of two things! 1 - An ice cream float! Hate them! Rootbeer, 7up or Coke it doesn't matter. A childhood disappointment that I am afraid to revisit as an adult! 2 - Chewy candy. Gummy bears come to mind. Why bother? If it isn't chocolate or melting sinfully in my mouth I don't want it. Not true. Old fashioned Necco's are good, and sweet tarts used to be a favorite. Taffy is safe around me. Caramels are safe around me. Love peppermints, though!

I hate Twinkies ..they are the cockroach of food..that's so far from natural it's scary and they taste awful

Mayo, Lay's Potato Chips, Hard candy, Root Beer and pretty much any fruity or "creme" soda.

I wish I didn't love salty snacks so much. Chips, pretzels, ANYTHING. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE chicken fingers. When I'm cheating, it's usually fried food. Oops.

That being said, I really don't care for anything super sweet. I'm not a huge cake person and I hate donuts.

I'm a really picky eater which in some ways sucks as I don't like a lot of stuff that I WISH I could love (eg. most salad stuff, especially green leafy veg) but it also means that I don't like a lot of foods that aren't so good for me.

I don't eat most red meat. I like beef but only in small amounts and I'll eat bacon but only with the fat cut off as I hate the texture of the fat but won't eat pork or lamb. I also don't like alcohol (I sometimes will drink run but it has to be only a tiny bit and mainly all mixer but only really fancy it like maybe twice a year). I also don't really like fizzy juice although I'll drink it if there's nothing else there or I'm at the pub or whatever but I wouldn't pick it if I had a choice. My mum also never put salt on our food growing up and so I hate salty tastes and never put extra salt on my food as it makes me feel sick. I don't like salad cream and only recently (in the last few years started to eat mayonnaise but used to hate that too). I also don't like quite a lot of takeaway food. I don't like anything from Indian takeaways, don't like much from the Chinese, don't understand why anyone would want to eat a kebab.

So quite a few things but all my bad habits make up for it, I think! Lol.

I've also quit the french fries although I did grab a few bites over the weekend while my aunt and uncle were here. Hmm, what else? I've stopped eating those fruit pies you get at the gas station. I've also quit the potato chips.

What CAN'T I quit? Chocolate... I crave it desperately when I've got my period. But instead of milk chocolate, I now eat dark chocolate.

I hate beer ..... sometimes I feel like I'm the only person on the planet who doesn't drink it!
August 17, 2012 3:00 PM
chocolate, have never craved it on it's own. I have it once and a while as i enjoy sweet / salty, but a block of chocolate nope.
August 17, 2012 3:00 PM
OH WAIT!~ Just realized I can't stand bacon.

It's disgusting.

Next time you get a block, send it my way. Make it Belgian if possible! = D

Sugared soda is the only bad food I dislike. Let's face it, if most of us disliked bad foods we might not be here! laugh
August 17, 2012 3:03 PM
most fast food places, and cake i guess... it NEVER tastes as good as it looks grumble
August 17, 2012 3:04 PM
chocolate, ice cream, pop corn, fast food, deep friend chicken, deep fried anything for that matter.... the list goes on. There are a lot of foods that I just do not enjoy
August 17, 2012 3:04 PM
I'm glad I hate soda too!
August 17, 2012 3:06 PM
sweet tea...i dont understand how anyone that is not a kid can like that stuff.
August 17, 2012 3:07 PM
Almost any store bought, brand-name cookie. I HATE Oreo's with a passion, and no idea why.

A few of the only cookies that I actually don't think are that bad are the Who-Nu's <---for those who don't know, the checkerboard or classic wafers, and Milanos.

Other than that I never ever ever buy cookies at the store, and if I do I have maybe one at the most and other people will eat them.

Oreos make me gag tho... ewwwww.

McDonalds or Burger King. I can't stand anything from there. Don't get me wrong though, there are PLENTY of other fast food restaurants I will eat at, I just can't eat those.

I also can't stand Twinkies or those snack cakes everyone is mentioning, they are so processed that it just doesn't taste like food!

Other than that, I think I'm pretty much game.
August 17, 2012 3:07 PM
I dont care for the snack cakes either. Now I do love a store bought/home made regular cake, but I never buy them and the only time I ever baked them was for my son's birthday. Even when I didnt pay attention to what I ate, I still never bought cake. Even at restaurants, I never ordered dessert. I also dont care for candy (fruity flavored things like hard candy, skittles etc), unless its chocolate.

Oh, and regular soda of any kind. I weaned myself off that crap about 12 years ago now I cant stand the taste of it. I will occasionally have a diet soda.

Let's start by saying I love almost everything that I shouldn't when it comes to food.

However, I don't like most candy bars (sweet overload!), don't care for super greasy chips (think Lays), and most fast food fries fail to live up to the high hopes I have for them (I would take home baked fries any day, even though those aren't particularly good for you either).

ice cream
soda pop

Bacon is not a bad food. You take that back.

B-but, Bacon is a required food group!! Hah!

I hate Alfredo sauce.
