    23 Foods That People Hate Despite Never Trying Them

    Some foods just aren't made for human consumption.

    We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about the foods that they just ~know~ they hate, even though they've never tried them:

    1. Watermelon.

    "Saying it or hearing someone say 'watermelon' actually makes me gag. Seeing one uncut doesn't make me feel sick but if I see one cut up, forget about it I'm gagging. Couldn't tell you why. Never tried it never will I physically don't think I could? Pathetic."


    2. Rice pudding.

    "Looks like vomit."


    3. Baked beans.

    "Just looking at them makes me gag."


    4. Oysters.

    "You’re telling me shells with weird squishy meat that you SLURP OUT in them are supposed to taste good? I’ll pass now and forever thank you."


    5. Spam.

    "I feel nauseous just thinking about it."


    6. Avocados.

    "They look vile and I can't think of anything that would make it seem appealing to eat."


    7. Sardines.

    "Even the word feels slimy."


    8. Kimchi.

    "it smells like a foot."


    9. Sushi, especially with avocado in it.

    "The textures look horrifying to me. Also, knowing how much I loathe avocado, I can just imagine sushi with avocado is two times nastier."


    10. Shellfish.

    "Things that have their skeleton on the outside freak me out."


    11. Blue cheese.

    "Ain't got close enough to try that shit. The smell is enough to keep you ten feet away."


    12. Brussel sprouts.

    "Can’t get over the disgusting smell."


    13. Ketchup.

    "It smells and looks absolutely disgusting. I can’t even touch it or get anywhere near it!"


    14. Eggnog.

    "It just seems so unappealing to me. An eggy drink? I'll pass!"


    15. Trifle.

    "The idea of soggy biscuits and cold custard just makes me want to vomit."


    16. Pickles.

    "They look disgusting, they smell disgusting and I REFUSE to accept that people not only love them, but that people drink pickle juice alone."


    17. Black pudding.

    "Do you KNOW what that actually is?? Very misleading name."


    18. Tuna.

    "Hate the smell. No intention of ever trying it."


    19. Onion rings.

    "They look sweet/soggy on the inside and savory/fried crunchy on the outside, which sounds like a texture disaster. And I hate onions."


    20. Cherries.

    "They scare me somewhat. Have never touched or tasted one but I'm sure they're gross."


    21. Mac n' cheese.

    "Boxed or otherwise – us Italians don't do mac n cheese; can't."


    22. Meatloaf.

    "I mean...a loaf...of meat?!? No, thank you."


    23. Hot dogs and corn dogs.

    "I know I will hate the texture and taste of them, and the smell is just disgusting."
