    Raw fish
    Raw meat of any kind
    Undercooked meat of any kind (I'm not into bacterial Russian Roulette)
    Crustaceons - allergy (lobster, crab, shrimp)
    Moldy or stinky cheeses
    Sour Cream
    Sour Cream based chip dips, etc. 
    Mayonnaise
    Mayonnaise-based "salads" (chicken "salad', egg "salad", etc.)
    Cole Slaw (it's the mayo thing again)
    "Special" Sauces (yup, you guessed it)
    Yogurt
    Liver (or pate), kidney, tripe, or any other non-muscle meat, etc.
    Nearly anything Andrew Zimmerman eats on that strange food show.
    Rhubarb
    Tofu
    Absurdly hot peppers (Habanero, Scotch Bonnet, etc.) and their sauces.

        diet drinks - really gross
        clam strips - rubber bands?

        beer served from cans
        acorn squash, rutabaga, etc

              Goat cheese...Every one I've tasted made you think that you were down wind of a wet goat, so I've just given up on this item.

                There isn't anything I haven't tried once I refuse to eat, but there are some things that, having tried them, I refuse to put in my mouth ever again. Honeydew, cantaloupe, muskmelon...whatever you call it, I don't eat it. I'm highly allergic to it, so I can't even have it as a garnish on my plate, or eat something from a utensil that was used with it (so it includes things that are melon-flavoured, because I can never be sure, and if there is actual juice in there I'm screwed).
                 
                Other than that...organs. I don't eat organs. With the exception of my sister's liver pate. Spam, potted meat, Treet, Vienna sausages...none of that processed scary meat that comes in a can. I think that's really about it.

                    Some things I'm allergic to and can't eat, some I just refuse to, and some of them, both situations apply.
                     
                    99.9999% of seafood... I'll eat tuna fish and maybe fried haddock or cod on a very rare occasion, nothing else.
                    mayonnaise
                    rice
                    lettuce
                    eggs
                    corn (chips or tortillas are ok)
                    mushrooms
                    eggs
                    tofu
                    bleu cheese

                                    OK. I looked it up and the you tube vids are a hoot. Is this stuff worse than lutefisk?
                                    No, I haven't tried either, an out of date can of sardines is as far as I'm willing to go!

                                    OK, I see the problem, Not one of these delicacies is enhanced with a good old Louisiana (style) Hot Sauce. Hell, sturmherring or wahatever the heck that stuff was, or lutefisk a lotta Crystal, Franks, Texas Pete could make that stuff palatable!

                                          I have next to no hangups or problems with most any food or drink.
                                           
                                          But I am not interested in fried liver of most any variety nor tuna casseroles.

                                                That's a good one.  I agree.    Well, I can't say I have *never* eaten some of those "creations", but a lot of chefs sure do seem to go out of their way to ruin an otherwise perfectly good thing.      Using brioche rolls for a hamburger is a typical example of them ruining a food by trying to be all fancy pants.

                                                        I'll try anything twice.  Having traveled around asia I've eaten things that are pretty un-PC in the States.  Dog, cat, horse, live fish, salt fermented snake, locusts... to name a few.

                                                            raw fish, shellfish
                                                            liver ok - but no brains, heart, kidney's, Rocky Mountain oysters, pig's lips, feet, and tails( have actually eaten once, but very bony, with minuscule slivers of ham.  Too much effort to extract the meat, and then there's the eeeww factor)
