Foods That I Try to Like but Just Can't

I'm not a picky eater at all. I'm actually really quite adventurous and open to trying just about any food. These are foods that no matter how hard I try I just can't stand.
  1. Water chestnuts
    The texture is just so awful.
  2. Quinoa
    Probably the most controversial item on here since everyone seems to love quinoa. I can't wrap my head around it. The texture and flavor just weird me out.
  3. Anise
    This includes black licorice and fennel as well, although I can tolerate fennel to some extent.
  4. Salmon
    More specifically ordering salmon at a restaurant. I don't think I've ever been out to eat and seen salmon on the menu and wanted to order it.
  5. Artificial grape
    Okay so I guess this isn't something I'm trying to like but it just sucks so bad that I felt the need to include it.
