Our Readers' Most Despised Ingredients

Think back to when you were a kid. You probably hated a bunch of foods and could make a list pages long of all the things you couldn't stand eating. Broccoli, peas, Brussels sprouts, spinach -- do any of these ring a bell? A few of us maybe still don't care for some of these vegetables, but many of us outgrew our picky ways. However, some foods are just so hated that, even as adults, we carry our disdain to this day. If you're the kind of person who picks their olives out of a garden salad, gags at the smell of liver, or would rather have a tantrum than eat cilantro on your tacos, then see the slideshow below to see what made our list.
