    Just wondering what other folks are like - are there many foods that you like the thing itself, but can't stand the flavour or things made from it? Or vice versa?

    Mine are:

    Offal. I can't stand liver, kidney, etc. but I will eat most foods made from wierd bits - faggots, black pudding, pate etc.

    Fruit. Never been a fan - I think its mainly a texture thing but I always find the taste disappointing. But I love fruit juice, and can drink Innocent smoothies by the litre.

    Milk. Bleugh! But love cheese, yoghurt, ice cream, cream, etc.

    Chocolate. I love chocolate, but would never choose chocolate cake, ice cream, milkshake etc. if there was a different option.

    My mums things is strawberries - one of her favourite fruits but can't stand strawberry flavoured stuff, even jam.

    So any more to add?

    I love strawberries & bananas but can't stand anything strawberry or banana flavoured apart from strawberry jam & really hate it when these things are added to bought smoothies as I think they overpower all the other fruit
    I don't like the texture of tomatoes but love tomato puree & homemade tomato soup
    I don't like the taste of coffee or coffee flavoured things but I love the smell of it, especially the freshly ground stuff & I love the smell of coconut but the texture sets my teeth on edge

    Toffee is another one. I love real toffee but many toffee-flavoured things make me gag as they usually taste of coffee (which I don't like full stop :p)
