About This Quiz

You need food to live, but that doesn't mean you have to love every food out there. Some people will try anything once and don't really have any aversions to certain foods. But for the picky eaters of the world, they have very specific tastes. Where do you fall on that scale? Maybe you have hated the same foods since you were a child, but perhaps you grew to hate certain foods. Have you ever thought about why you hate certain foods? There could be science backing it up, but it could also be from outside influence. 

Foods like pineapple, not even on pizza, just pineapple itself, are controversial because people say it feels like it's burning their tongue. That is a chemical in the pineapple that breaks down flesh. So, it definitely reacts with your tongue. People have an aversion to mushrooms because they are a fungus that grows in the dirt. That's a hard thing to get over to try and enjoy a particular food, especially if they're constantly told by others how gross it is. Having these ideas put in your head could definitely cause you to hate certain foods, and so could the foods off our childhood. If your mom or dad wasn't the best cook, you might hate a lot of things they made for you. Or maybe you feel like you haven't had good food since college. What's your true food age? Tell us all about the foods you hate, and we'll guess!
