    Title says it all. Ever seen an ad/something at a store that makes your eyes light up and say "oooooh, that looks good!"? And then you buy it, expecting to bite into a big mouthful of deliciousness, only to get a mouthful of sadness instead.

    For me, it was pho (a kind of Vietnamese soup). All my friends kept hyping it up, but when we finally went to a shop, I found out that not only do I not like pho, I have that gene that makes cilantro taste like dish soap. So, double whammy. Big oof.

    Consistently for me its always Beef Stroganoff and Peanut Chicken. In my household they are favorites and both have components of stuff I super like!! but, together. they dont work for me.

    Pineapple on pizza. I'd been surrounded by people who love it, who think it's the best thing ever, so I decided to try it. It's not the worst-tasting thing I've ever had, but the texture made me want to vomit; the stringiness of the pineapple does not mix with the texture of melted cheese, let alone any other toppings...

    It's basically the same reason I don't like most veggies on pizza. I try not to be picky, but there are just some textures that I cannot stomach.

    Pineapple on pizza is the reason I have trust issues. You are not alone.

    That would have to be chocolate mint....It sounded good initially, but once I actually ate it, I'm not going to willingly eat it again, those two tastes just don't belong together imo.

    I'm rather picky when it comes to what I eat so I usually don't get disappointed when I have food. However, I haven't had fried food in years and I remembered it being really good, but I tried it recently and I was rather disappointed. It just always tasted greasy and I really hated it. Now fried food is just a meh thing.

    Oh there's a lot for me but I'll go with just a few.

    Milk foam boba tea -- I LOVE boba, you can always find me frequenting boba chains and smaller family-owned shops near my college and through the whole area I love in, but I remember trying out my favourite boba chain's milk foam oolong tea with boba with normal sweetness and standard boba toppings, and just cringing at how the milk trickling down made it way too sweet.........I abstained from ordering boba with milk added in any form for half a year after that because it was that deep an impression.

    Nougat -- I had wanted to try out nougat candy for the longest time, and the first time I actually bought nougat was in a small shop in a Hong Kong mall selling //European// candy. It was so hard to soften in the mouth, and the taste didn't really change or have any surprising effects on me.

    Durian -- This is a long story from my visit to Hong Kong about five years back. So my mum took me to her friend's apartment to have dinner with her family, and they all couldn't believe I had never eaten durian fruit back home (my mum never bothered to buy it because she was like "you aren't ready"). So they bring out a couple of freshly cut and packed durian fruit from the supermarket for me to try, and I was incredibly curious because this is such an infamous fruit, with its smell and its spiky rind and all. I really liked the tang and how it made eating //mushy// fruit a little more tolerable. But then when I got past the first piece the smell and texture started to overwhelm the taste and my nose to the point where I was regretting even having one bite...needless to say I told my mum never to buy the fruit to take home back in the States, ever.

    Chicken pot pie -- I LOVE the stuff inside on the surface, but it seems to me every time my dad brought it home for me to eat the interior, especially the soup, began to lose its savoury taste and start feeling bland. And I hate bland food that isn't steamed rice.....

    Frappucinos -- I ordered my first Starbucks frappe (caramel flavour) a few weeks back. I will never order a frappe ever again. The combination of sugar, milk, and coffee here is just wrong to my mouth.

    Tiger bubble tea. I love bubble tea, and the tiger-stripe black sugar sounded cool. That was until I actually drank it and it turned out to be practically tasteless. Bubble tea? More like bubble water and milk.

    It has to be dragon fruit. It's so pretty and yet its flavor is so underwhelming. Am I eating it wrong? Does it have something to do with how ripe it is? It's refreshing, sure, but the flavor just isn't there.

    What do they look like when you eat them? Are the fruit bright-red and evenly-covered? Is there a slight give under pressure? If they're really firm, and/or a duller color, then they may not be ripe enough.

    There was some kind of beverage I got at Starbucks that was supposedly strawberry flavored but I was disappointed because I hardly tasted any strawberry flavor. So I told my mom and we drove back to the Starbucks and complained about it and replaced it with a vanilla beverage.

    Yeah, that's what it'd looked like! However, it was a little firm. Kind of in that in-between phase of being firm and soft.

    Before I went to New York City two years ago, lots of people were telling me how good the street food was. Expecting something on par with California’s taco trucks, I ordered a pretzel during my trip. It tasted like cardboard that had an entire bag of salt put in.

    Sounds like it was almost ready; maybe just needed another day or two. IIRC they don't ripen as quickly as bananas (as much as I love them, I hate how quickly they brown), but bananas can be eaten in a less-ripe state anyway...

    But yeah, dragonfruit aren't for everyone.

    Tofu. I have always wanted to try it, and it didn't look bad. Not only did I despise the texture, I had a severe stomachache for the next day. It's a bummer because I typically like all types of foodl

    Pumpkin pasta sauce. Before you go, "Minty. Minty, please love yourself," just hear me out. Imagine butternut squash soup. Imagine how it's slightly spicy, but with just the right amount of garlic and earthiness to it. Now grill up some chicken chunks, steam some broccoli, and toss both of those things in. Serve over angel hair pasta. Doesn't sound too bad, right?

    No. Eff off. Pumpkin pasta sauce tastes like bland liquefied sandpaper, and over chicken, it replicates the exact taste of misery exactly. It was so bad that after half a dish and several minutes of contemplating if I really wanted to toss all that out, I was like, "This is the food equivalent of reading Les Miserables." Do not do it.
