10 Foods I Don't Like That Most Other People Love

Today I'm sharing a random post of 10 foods that I don't really like but everyone else seems to love. I didn't think I was a picky eater until I wrote out this list. But goodness, I guess I was wrong.

Also, all photos in this post are foods I love because why would I take pictures of food I hate?

Let's get to it!

5 Foods I Don't Like That Most Other People Love 

1. Peanut Butter

It's true. I'm not a fan of pb. Feel free to quit being my friend or reading my blog but the fact is the same, I just don't like that stuff much. When I think of peanut butter I think of it as dog food because I give my dog pb as a treat. For all you people who take a big spoon of it and eat it, gross! I just can't. First off, you can't even chew that stuff and it just gets stuck in your mouth. Ew!

Now oddly as it may sound, I still will eat peanut butter in things. I'll eat peanut butter cookies, some peanut butter desserts and I do love some Justin's chocolate hazelnut butter (which doesn't taste like pb at all).  I will eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich while camping but it definitely is not a go to for me.

I tried to like peanut butter. When I lived in Korea we went to Taiwan for vacation and I figured I'd travel really cheap by taking my own peanut butter and making my own sandwiches. Then the guy at the airport took my peanut butter because he said it was a liquid???? Seriously?! And peanut butter wasn't cheap there. That pretty much sealed the deal on my hate for peanut butter.

Lastly, powdered peanut butter that you all put in smoothies. Barf.

2. Bananas

Again, ew! I don't know why I don't like them but I just don't. After running races they often have bananas and I just think "Why would I take a banana when I can go and get a burger or bacon?" ha!

However, just like peanut butter I can eat bananas in things. I can add them to a smoothie or have a banana dessert. However, I never really do add bananas to my smoothies nor do I make banana desserts...

The only bananas I really like to eat are fried Brazilian bananas and those are served as a dessert. So good!

3. Peanut M&M's

Just don't tell my nephew, Elliot, about this. He loves M&M's a ton but I just can't eat those either. I don't even have a reason for not liking these they just aren't my thing. However, if my nephew wanted to sit and share his M&M's with me I'd act like I loved them. =)

4. Egg Salad & Miracle Whip

No! First off, who invented Miracle Whip? It's a sweet taste and just so gross. For all you people that lather your sandwich with this I have three words: get some mayonnaise!  Also, egg salad?! Why? That is such a weird combo to me.

5. Girl Scout Cookies

I know people rave about these cookies and hoard them in their freezer all year but I just wonder why you would want an over baked processed cookie when you can have something delicious, like a homemade chocolate chip cookie? The only girl scout cookie I can remotely eat is the peanut butter one, which is ironic, considering my #1 disliked item on this list was peanut butter. ha!

6. PSL

Gross! Why do people have to put pumpkin and spices in everything? I can't even handle the smell.

7. Milk

I tried. I really really tried to like milk because it was healthy but I just don't like the taste of it. Dave, the PA, told me I was lucky osteoporosis doesn't run in my family. I told him I am sure I drink enough milk in my coffee.

8. Oreos

Whenever I see people eating Oreos I think it is a waste of calories. I mean you could be eating a chocolate chip cookie fresh from the oven but you settled for an Oreo?

Here is a weird thing though - when I live abroad I eat Oreos because sometimes they randomly sell them in Asia and it tastes like America. And if you live in Asia, you know what I'm taking about! There comes a point where you will eat anything that tastes like America.

9. Strawberries, Blackberries & Raspberries

I can eat these but they aren't my favorite. But blueberries! Give them all to me!

I think strawberries are too tart. Raspberries are a bit too sour and I don't like all those seeds in blackberries.

The only strawberries I ever loved to eat were the ones in Korea. We took a field trip to the strawberry fields and I almost got sick on how many I ate. They were so sweet and good.

10. North American Fruit

Okay, I like fruit but apples and a lot of the fruits we get here in America aren't my favorite thing. I really prefer tropical fruits and I blame this on growing up in Brazil followed by amazing Thai mangoes. I mean papaya, mangoes, passion fruit and coconut??? So amazing. I honestly don't eat a lot of fruit unless it is blueberries as I'd rather eat veggies. I love kale, collard greens and asparagus. Am I weird?

What are some foods you don't like that most people like? 

Is there anyone else out there on this planet that doesn't like peanut butter? Did you know Asian dogs don't like peanut butter! It's true. They like rice. We tried to give a dog there pb and she wouldn't eat it but she chowed down a rice ball. ha ha! 

What is your least favorite food? Why? 

Oh and while I was looking for pictures for this post I came upon this oldie but goodie picture of my pet duck named Quack. <3 Which you should know I refuse to eat anything duck after having a pet duck....


  1. PEANUT BUTTER IS THE WORST!!! Finally! Someone else who doesn't like it.

    I'm not with you on the berries thing, though, I love fruit.

  2. You crack me up! What on earth? I love peanut butter and eat it with a spoon allll the time. Like multiple times a day! I love love berries of all kinds. One thing I don't like that other people seem to really love are brownies. I think they are okay but I am not in love with them. Love your duck picture!

  3. Egg salad is so nasty. Well, I just don't like any sort of hard boiled egg dish in general. And yes, ugh, to Miracle Whip, blech. I also don't like bananas, unless it's in a smoothie.

  4. Haha, this is great! I actually LOVE peanut butter & eat it several times a day. I like actual bananas but anything banana flavored... no! Miracle Whip is so disgusting! I don't know how anyone can enjoy it.

  5. I HATE milk!!! Hate it. My parents never made me drink it because my mom hates it as much as I do, so she gave me plenty of other dairy options. My aunt force fed me a glass of whole milk, and the taste made me cry and gag. I just hate it so much!
