Default Common food you will not eat

Millhouse had me thinking with his comment on the other thread.

What are the common food ("known" food or brands) that you will not eat. And why not?

Brussels sprouts because they are sulphurous cocoons of concentrated evil.

Otherwise I'm very favourably disposed to anything associated with that delightful and very under-rated city.

Marmite is rancid.

Brands - not sure, don't think I have any passionate dislike for any.
Foods - I don't like raw tomatoes, mushrooms of any kind and most shellfish / seafood I'm not that keen on but will eat if I have to.

Baked beans and bananas are my two main hates...... but you could squeeze most veggies in there too.

Other than that I like eating all kind of random things.

God I love corned beef. Weirdly the only time I'll consider peasant sauce (salad cream) is with corned beef sandwiches. It just works.
