On Wednesday of this week the Lunch Tray Trivia question was "What is the most hated vegetable in the U.S.?" The answer: Brussel Sprouts.

I pretty much like a lot of foods. I know I'm a foodie. No surprise there. I'm willing to try most things. I've never had Brussel Sprouts. I can't form an opinion to agree or disagree. If I were served Brussel Sprouts, I'd try them.

Then I got to thinking, are there other foods that we Americans just absolutely can't stand?

Kitchen Daily has a list of the 10 Most Hated Foods.

Of the foods listed below, I like 5 of them: Garlic, Cilantro, Mayonnaise, Mushrooms and Licorice. Actually it might be 6 if I add in Celery. It's not my favorite stand alone vegetable but it's a great flavor adder for soups and salads. So maybe 5 and 1/2.

The 10 Most Hated Foods

1. Brussel Sprouts

2. Garlic

3. Cheese Fondue

4. Tofu

5. Celery

6. Oysters

7. Mayonnaise

8. Mushrooms

9. Licorice

10. Cilantro

I can't believe people don't like Cilantro. I love that herb.What's up with hating Garlic? Don't people like flavor in their foods. I put it in almost everything.

As for Tofu. I've never ate tofu straight but I did have Tofu Chocolate Ice Cream. It was kind of good. It had a bit of a rough texture but it was edible. It's not a favorite but I don't hate it.

There are a few things I think need to be added to the list.

I DO NOT like. Lima Beans. Yuck they taste like paste. Cooked Spinach. It's just nasty slimy. Eggplant is so-so, and would make the list, just because I have a slight allergic reaction to it. It makes my mouth itch. Also, I'd put Spam on there. That is just gross.

What do think about the list? Is it accurate? What do you think is missing from it?
