Divisive Foods and Polarizing Herbs

Sharing is caring!

Roasted Carrot and Beet Salad with Goat Cheese

Taste buds are mystifying things.  How is it possible that I could gobble up fresh steamed beets like candy, while they disgust my friend Jeanne (and a lot of other people I know)?  Or that for many food lovers mushrooms are a delicacy, while for others like my colleague Betsy, they are repulsive?

Sure, we all have certain foods that we love or hate with a passion, but in my 12 years of creating and sharing recipes, I have found that certain foods really send seemingly calm and rational people scurrying to the other side of the table.

Here is my list of the Top 10 Divisive Foods and Polarizing Herbs:

  1. Beets
  2. Brussels Sprouts
  3. Eggplant
  4. Tofu
  5. Okra
  6. Mushrooms
  7. Peppers
  8. Gorgonzola/Blue Cheese
  9. Cilantro
  10. Fennel

Strangely, I enjoy all of the above foods (well, maybe not okra, but I tolerate it).  I’d love to hear from you Scramblers about what foods you hate with a passion.  Please add your comments about what foods you loathe or you have noticed are very divisive here!
