    Have you ever not liked something but you never tried it? I was that way with Dr. Pepper and wheat bread, I would walk around saying that those two tasted like crap, but I had never even tried them. When I was in college I finally broke down and tried them and it was love at first taste on both.:rofl::rofl:

    Uncle Frankie says to never say you don't like something you haven't tried. I tried several foods while staying with them that were pretty good.

    So what do you do? Do you pour the Dr. Pepper on the bread like a pancake, or do you dip your bread in the Dr. Pepper?

    Guacamole.

    I always thought it looked like puke and smelled like crap. But I dated a girl who was a guac fiend, I tried it, and now I love it.

    When I was younger, in my teens, I was very much against eating game meat. Later on, I fell in with a bunch of hunters who KNOW how to cook AND shoot! I always get some of the game meat, especially the past five years when I've been weak and doing poorly from fighting Leukemia. I have been able to do a little squirrel and dove hunting. I've just been told I'm in Cancer remission and a good pal in the San Antonio area has invited me to come over and shoot some feral hogs. We plan on taking several. There is a food shelter in that area that a local butcher puts up game meat for them. He's coming with us overnight with a refrigerated meat truck, AND his cousin who is a priest, and my friend who is a Baptist deacon and EMS. We'll pray over the animals and also for a good, safe hunt, and proceed to shootin:wavey: All prayers and good thoughts are welcome:faint:

    Always pray for a safe hunt, and a good hunt.

    Always thank your noble prey for giving its flesh to your nourishment and the nourishment of your family.

    I didn't like Glock(s) when I first heard about them (and read about them).

    Then, my local sportsman's club accepted the offer from GSSF to hold a match at our club.

    We were loaned several Glocks. G17 and G21.
    I thought they sounded like 'rubberband guns' when dry-fired.

    Then, I shot both. :wow: Shoots very well!!
    Now. . . look at my signature, and there's a couple more on the bucket list.:supergrin:

    I use this rationale on anti-gunners. If I meet someone who says they don't like guns, I always ask them if they've ever fired one. Usually, they'll say no. I then invite them to the range, my treat. The ones that agree, probably about 25% of them, are usually hooked before the first magazine from the .22 pistol is empty.

    I can think of a few things but don't want to get the thread locked.

    One I will say though - liver. My dad won't eat it and I won't eat it. Same with chitlins. Pretty much any internal organ is on my do-not-eat list.

    (and before someone mentions what's in cheap hamburgers and hot dogs, I already know)

    That phase ended when I got into my 20's.
    I'm not a picky eater anymore and like to try new things.
    The foods I don't like I've tried at least once. :wavey:

    nope, if i look at something and my brain or my stomach immediately rejects the idea of putting it in my mouth i figure there's probably a pretty good reason for it.

    spinach is a perfect example. i don't like green vegetables to begin with but spinach is particulalrly repulsive to me, but i followed my mothers advice and tried it once to be sure. i haven't puked that much or that hard since the infamous "seawall balcony bender" incident of 2006. never again. from now on i'll just trust my brain/gut combo.
