Greeeeeeen Peppers!! Gag me. They are so strong, they take over everything! I cannot touch a pizza or stir fry that has them in it. Cooked ones are especially disgusting. Honestly, I will try everything once. I’ve had chicken feet, steak tartare, snails, but I HATE GREEN PEPPERS!!
Onions, olives, eggs, cilantro, peas, cheese, I love.
Oh, and I have a love-hate relationship with cinnamon. I ate a whole box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch when I was little, and threw it up under my basement stairs, lol. So to this day if I catch a whiff of cinnamon, it makes my stomach turn. BUT, I love cinnamon rolls. It’s weird. I guess I hate the smell of it on its own, but if it’s mixed with something else, like sugar, it’s OK. Which is strange in itself because Cinnamon Toast Crunch is sugary.

ME TOO!! Mayo is one of the most vile substances ever invented, as far as I’m concerned. Bleh. And then they just PUT it on things! Without telling me!! There oughtta be a law…
I also have to ask about meat everywhere, since I’m a vegetarian.

Tomatoes for me. I’ll eat ketchup and tomato sauce, but an actual raw tomato… nasty.
I ordered a chicken caesar salad the other day, and it was covered with tomatoes that weren’t mentioned on the menu. Who the heck would think to say, “I’ll have the caesar salad, but hold the tomatoes”.

Mayo definitely! I can’t eat it on anything and always ask to have it removed. I also don’t eat olives, onions, eggs, cilantro. Pretty much everything you guys listed. LOL.

Olives, Mustard (except honey mustard), and pickles. I gag when my husband eats these things, and I refuse to let me kiss me with pickle breath.

I hate mayo and mustard (in any form or variation). Gag! I hate the smell, the look, the texture, and the flavor of these :o(

Agreed. I hate mayo, the look of it, the texture, the nastiness and yeah, I have to say ‘no mayo.’ Sometimes I get dirty looks b/c they’re like “it doesn’t come with Mayo.”

I agree with all the PP about mayo. Icccck! Why does it even exist?! It jiggles! I used to work at Subway, and I almost gagged making someone’s sandwich once when she asked for extra mayo, and continued to say “More, please…. more….. more…. okay, that’s good!”
It drives me up the wall when cheese isn’t mentioned on menus. I’m lactose intolerant, so I always read the details to avoid the dairy. I’ve been disappointed by simple pasta dishes with marinara sauce that come slathered in Parmesan, with no indication on the menu. I’ve learned to say “Please no cheese” regardless, especially at Italian restaurants. @beekiss:
Yup, totally get what you mean about the dirty looks when something actually doesn’t come with mayo or cheese.

I can’t stand mushrooms… absolutely can’t stand them. They smell great when cooked! If only they tasted great! Same with blu cheeses… they are disgusting. (my world would open up so much if I could just stomach those two things!!!)
So, if anything comes with mushrooms and I didn’t expect them, I promptly let them know I will need a new dish because I am “allergic”. Allergies suddenly make people care! The first time I did that Mr. Hedgie was completely confused but now it just makes him laugh. I do that with places that offer melon as the fruit side too… That way I always seem to get strawberries or pineapple!

I hate black licorice, dark meat chicken/turkey (so gross and slimy), sour cream and cottage cheese!

Onions, mushrooms, alvocado (sp?), liver, & brussel sprouts yuck Ok, I know I’m not actually ever going to a get a liver accidentally when ordering at a restaurant, but I couldn’t stop myself at the side items…
