Vegan things I don't eat

I've gone on and on about vegan things to eat this month, so how about flipping the question upside down: what vegan things do I not eat? (Er, vegan things generally considered edible, that is.) I'm actually not all that picky. Well, some would say that being vegan in itself is being majorly picky, but I consider it merely re-defining the word "edible". I've even endeavoured to learn to eat (and even like) things I previously felt suspicious towards

Anyway, there are a couple of things I still just cannot stand, no matter how diplomatic and well-mannered I try to be.
  • Garlic. My reason for detesting garlic is not, contrary to popular belief, that I am a vampire, but that I am simply allergic to it. Well, I also find the taste and smell of it revolting, but getting massive stomach-pains after eating it doesn't really make it more appealing.
  • Grapefruit. Ugh, the bitterness. Fuck grapefruit.
  • Blue cheese. Yes, even the vegan variety. Mold doesn't belong in food, damnit!
Hm, now that I think about it, I cannot quite recall anything else that I've actually tasted and subsequently refused to eat. Sure, there are things I dislike, but not to the point of wanting to eliminate them from the Earth's surface so that nobody will try to feed me with them. If I were to include meat-, egg- and dairy products, the list would be several orders of magnitudes longer, but since such things no longer fall within my definition of food I will not bother mentioning them. Overall I really like vegan food.

What foods do you dislike to the point of refusing to eat them?



  1. För mig är det burksvamp, jag skulle aldrig i mitt liv äta det. Sen gäller det även en sak som du ändå inte äter, men ägg i ren form eller hur man ska säga.

  2. Ah, samma här! Burksvamp klarar jag heller inte av.
