The names of certain foods that turn people off
My husband is really bad for this. After 40 years of marriage, I’m just starting to realize that some of the thing he says he hates are because he won’t try it because of the name. Squash, gumbo, goat cheese for a few examples. He also wouldn’t go to a very good chain of restaurants that used to be called Joey Tomatoes. i finally found out that it had tomatoes in the name and that turned him off. Another issue, he hated tomatoes, until I found out it was because he didn’t like cooked tomatoes or onions because his Mom didn’t chop them up well and the onions were according to him great slimy worms of crunchy stuff. My Mom is really bad for this too.
