i love sushi. but i draw the line at octopus. i am afraid that it will come alive in my stomach and suck my insides and kill me.
which food are you afraid of?
They always kick up such a fuss....
that's true. i'm also scared of cauliflower a bit. looks like brain.

I've got a bit of a food phobia about egg whites. I can eat scrambled egg and omelettes no problem, but really can't bring myself to eat fried, poached or boiled eggs. The whites are so slimy and disgusting, especially boiled eggs - they look like eyeballs
I have no problems with eggs. I have six ex-battery hens, I did have eight but two have sadly gone to the big wheely bin in the sky....
Love having my own eggs costs about £12 a month to feed the hens, and I have more eggs then I ever need and give half a dozen away once every week or two to one or two neighbours.
I am afraid of bananas.
I won't eat shellfish.
About 10 years ago I ate some mussels in a hotel in France and was violently sick about an hour later. Very unpleasant, so I don't take any chances now.
Just bananas. Cucumbers, courgettes, carrots etc. are all fine.

anything else is fine
Brussels sprouts are the Devil's testicles.

Yes. It is the vegetable of the anti-Christ. Evil incarnate. It has no right to exist.
No, surely that vegetable is okra?
ive always been uncertain about sweetcorn!!
theres something i dont trust about it.
plus its pointless food that should be just given to fish
milk - freaks me out - the very thought of it. (never mind the smell and taste etc- yuck)
Jason, I totally agree about sweetcorn .... anything that can pass through the human digestive system and remain intact surely has something of the devil about it !
Jerusalem Artichokes - what evil b*****d thought eating those was a good idea???

Bananas are the only other one, texture and taste makes me feel ill but really wish I could eat them as it would make pre and post swims a whole lot easier.
I think that the violent-sick reaction to food poisoning is enough to make most people think twice about certain foodstuffs.-Prawn mayonnaise sandwiches do that for me.
-But if I am the one to prepare the prawns then I'm happy. Similarly with mussels. Eating raw oysters is a bit like playing Russian roulette. They are massively over-rated too. I will also go out of my way to avoid eating in a Macdonalds or a Little Chef.
But foods that frighten me? Sorry, I just don't get the concept. It's like a child asking me what's my favourite number or favourite colour. I see numbers and colours. I wouldn't choose a yellow car, but then again I'd be suspicious of a blue daffodil.
POO CAKE FROM IKEA??!!
i'll eat pretty much anything, however I tried "Balut" in the Philippines, i dont think i'd eat that again,
They had that in Vietnam and often sold them on the trains. I sat next to someone who was eating one. *Shudders*
Balut - I had to look that one up . While doing so, I found this
I like the sound of the ant eggs. I missed out on ant egg soup when I went to Laos but didn't see it on a menu anywhere.
