We asked what meal you always hated as a kid and still refuse to eat, some of the answers certainly made us gag that’s for sure!

I always hated corned meat as child, we called it “red meat”. I will eat it occasionally now though, but it is definitely not a fave.

Lots of you said how much you despise lambs fry, tripe and steak & kidney pie.

While others had some quite shocking food memories and we can totally understand why you would be scarred for life by them.


Top 1o hated dishes include:

1. Ham and pea soup

2. Corned beef was a popular dislike

3. Apricot chicken (still one of my fave meals!)

4. Smoked cod

5. Meat loaf also seemed to be a popular hated meal

6. Egg salad

7. Even Christmas pudding got a mention. (Have to agree with that!)

8. Cabbage and brussel sprouts are certainly the most detested vegetable that’s for sure

9. Sardines (ewwww yes totally agree!)

10. Weetbix also made the list

What was your most hated meal as a child?


  • I always hated smoked cod and still do now.


  • I don’t like soup when i was a child.


  • Wow. I love most of these, sardines and Christmas pudding are definitely ones I will never touch and smoked cod. But I love all the others.


  • I always and still can’t bring myself to eat Brussel Sprouts. My mum would boil them to the point of distinction so they were water, soggy and gross. I really must try them again one day but the memory is strong!!!


  • I always hated fish, still don’t eat it and I quit all meat and too.
    Cabbage and brussels sprouts are well eaten here :)


  • Smoked Cod. I cannot stand the smell of this. Tripe. OMG, I can’t believe we were fed this. Christmas Pudding – we only ate it to find the money hidden within!


  • The list could be endless, definitely have to agree with meat loaf, christmas pudding and apricot chickn though.
    My partner and i both and have always disliked baby corn!


  • Why is tomato soup not on this list???


  • After a 10 day school camp which served sausages for all 3 meals every day, my brother and i loathed sausages. When we got home from the camp mum had made sausage casserole which we REFUSED to eat. I do like them again though, but it was probably 10 years before I ate them again!


  • Definitely pumpkin, I still can’t handle it.


  • I actually like some of these although lambs fry and powdered milk are definitely not a favourite


  • Wow, what is everyone’s problem with weet-bix, meatloaf and corned beef? I had a couple of things I loathed- my mother used to make packet mashed potato (gross!), which I used to call “goop” and powdered milk (which I used to call “dragon milk”). As to meals- I hate her vegetarian stroganoff. She uses a lot of sour cream in it so not sure if that’s why. All I know is I make my own meat versions from recipes I’ve found and I actually like it- go figure!


  • My most hated was jar sauce satay chicken because we had it ALLLL the time also anything with Lamb in it yuck!
    I make my own satay chicken from scratch never out the jar and I still won’t eat lamb haha


  • The majority of these I love! I’ll pass on the sardines and smoked cod otherwise I love the rest!


  • Doubt there was anything I disliked as a child and virtually nothing I won’t eat as an adult. I guess I must be a very boring person. Good article and some of he replies have been great also.
