Question Does Anyone Have Any Taste Aversions?

For those who don't know, an example of a taste aversion would be :

When you were young you went to a barbecue and ate a hotdog. Shortly thereafter you became really nauseaus and threw up. From that point on, the smell/thought/thought of hotdogs made you want to be sick (even though it may have turned out you had the flu or something and the hotdog was not necessarily related to the sickness).

Of course they can be more minor than the above, but that is the general idea.



For me, the SMELL of certain hard liquors - esp Rye and Vodka, makes me want to vomit. If I lean over a bottle of Vodka and inhale, it sets off my gag reflex

I can drink the crap, but only if I have a damn good chaser, and don't breathe near it

Also, the same goes for wine - going into a wine store is a painful exerience for me.

Raw tomatoes do it for me as well.

I can relate all of these to certain events to do with those substance



Anyone else have any? (well most people DO have them, but does anyone else want to share)

For me, it's mac with cheese

the last time I ate it, I was sick for a week and a half.

Now I won't even allow my mom to make it (gags just thinking about it)

carrots!

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Not exactly a taste, but rather a smell... the inside of pumpkins The smell and texture and just the thought of this triggers the gag reflex. On two occasions in elementary, I threw up on the day (not at school though fortunately) we carved pumpkins for Halloween. Maybe just a coincidence, but I haven't carved pumpkins since.

I am over it now but for a long time I couldn't handle peanut butter. first because I eat myself sick in peanut butter cookies and because on tv two idiots were making paintings with it and it was so incredible disgusting that I haven't eaten that stuf for at least 5 years!

For me, it was those cherry flavored licorice. I ate them, then got really dizzy and threw up. From then on I never wanted to eat them again.

My sister's would have to be Chinese Food. She ate too much and then vomitted. It took several years till she started liking it again.

The reason wine makes me gag, would be the obvious one

But my problem with Rye or Whisky, or anything of that sort isn't related to my personal consumption. When I was in grade 8 a freind of mine drank before coming to school and ended up barfing all over her desk by about 930 am The entire class wreaked so bad of stale alcohol that we had to evacuate to the library untill it aired out

Of course, I was the lucky one who got the honour of walking/carrying her to the bathroom She wreaked of it, and was covered in her own vomit (did I mention that my teacher didn't like me ).

So I'm fairly certain that my problem with pretty much an hard liquor smell is related to that incident.

I can't totally place my problems with Tomatoes ONce when I was about 8, my dad made me sit at the table for about 2 hours, saying that i wouldn't be allowed up untill I finished my tomatoes

My sister and my brother were also there with a portion of tomatoes waiting to be eaten, so I wasn't alone

But the thought of eating them at that point made me want to gag, so I don't think that was what did it

Though associating sitting at the table eating tomatoes with punishment, certaintly couldn't have helped.
