All of us had a few foods that, as children, we simply wouldn't eat no matter what our parents or guardians said or did to try to get us to go along. Come punishment, bribery, pleading, or the removing of all other food, we'd simply rather go hungry than endure so much as a single bite of the loathed substance. Popular despised childhood foods typically include slightly bitter options such as broccoli and Brussels sprouts, with cabbage making a strong showing. However, if we could be convinced to try a few of these foods as children then we do tend to eventually embrace most of the ones we once swore were despicable.
As adults, of course, we mostly have fewer absolute no-gos as food, and since we have more autonomy over what we eat, we only rarely have to face them. A good dinner party host would always check about such things ahead of time, after all, and in a restaurant, there's sure to be an option to avoid it. Plus, if push comes to shove, you can always blame allergies, celiac disease, or something your trainer or nutritionist is making you do. However, if you're honest, there's that one food or type of food that you couldn't shove down your throat even if the alternative was being extremely rude and horribly hungry. Let's figure out what it is!
