The Daily Post – Mouths Wide Shut – Picky Eater

Are you a picky eater? Share some of your favorite food quirks with us (the more exotic, the better!). Omnivores: what’s the one thing you won’t eat?

What won’t I eat?  Since I was a little toddler, I won’t eat sweet potatoes, cantalope, parsnips, cooked carrots, any vegetable that is sweet, except I do like tomatoes that have a sweet edge.  Call me crazy, but when I was 4 years old, I had an uncle-in-law who force fed me sweet potatoes and that was it for a lifetime.  I do occasionally try to eat them, such as, I had them in a savory rosemary flavored soup which was really quite good (and not sweet tasting).  I have tried to taste sweet potatoes with the marshmallow topping cooked on top, but frankly, all I liked was the marshmallow topping!

Cantalopes are the same way, being as they are melons, they sure don’t taste like watermelons!  I’ve never been able to swallow them!

I do like raw carrots, but not cooked carrots – go figure!  It’s that cooked sweet taste.  I will in general, eat a raw sweet vegetable, but forget about getting me to eat it cooked!

Oh, and don’t even get me started on a pile of cooked spinach, bleah.

    I can’t eat fried eggs. Scrambled, omelette all are fine. I was not allowed to leave the breakfast table until I ate my fried egg. I didn’t..

    We lived in Germany for several years when I was young. In about fourth grade we were served coffee when we were visiting a German family and my parents insisted that I drink it to be polite. I I haven’t drunk coffee since then….. and I’m almost 66! Yuck.
