    What things ~ food and drink [or even beyond] ~ do you like that you think vast swathes of your fellow humans will never like? And what things do people around you consume that you cannot seem to acquire a taste for?

    I refuse to eat any form of shellfish - prawns, lobsters, calamari, oysters and all the rest, although I enjoy fish. It's not just the taste, it's that rubbery texture I can't stand.

    I like to snack on raw caulflower, too. Nothing added. I NEVER add salt to anything.

    Snails, definitely. I got chills down my spine the first time, then warmed up
    to it. Ended never turning down the chance of having garlic butter snails, but
    mostly when I am in Bordeaux and in a particular restaurant I'm quite fond of.

    Scotch on "a" rock, for the first question and any "jellied" meat for the latter.

    A fruit called durian, aside from rare occasions when I've had a 'light' and 'mild' variety [in South Sumatera, for example], has a taste that I think I'm never going to acquire a liking for. I once had to eat a durian [something I would never do voluntarily] in front of live TV cameras in the company of the mayor of a large city. Thank goodness it happened in South Sumatera.
