    Almost posted fried chicken. I get the occasional order of wings if we're out, but like in a bucket? Turns my stomach to consider it. Can't remember the last time I had it.
    I'm with you on soda, but pizza is something that can be done so many ways I can't paint with that broad a brush. We've been off high-gly carbs for a fair few years, and pizza's still solid to me. Granted almost all frozen pizza tastes like some weird preservative and the major US chains have dough that range from meh to disgusting, but there are two local faves I love. A little goes a long way if it's good. I could eat an entire medium Domino's back in the day.

    Malted milk balls. Actually only ate them once. Made me sick and I regurgitated.

    BTW, colas like Coke and Pepsi have a quality about them that supposedly never turns you off of the flavor. Probably the reason why they have been popular worldwide for over a century.

    I grew out of milk chocolate (dark only for me), hotdogs, almost all prepackaged freezer food, all artificial juices and carbonated drinks.

    On a very related note, 8 years ago I weighed 295 lbs. After giving up the above, I am 60 lbs lighter.

    As a kid, I loved liver and onions. Now? Can't even stand the smell.
    We also used to eat Treet (cheaper knockoff of Spam). A couple years back, I saw Spam in the store and thought "why not? a trip down memory lane" Just nasty, that's why not.

    I used to eat sardines as a kid and liverwurst...lots of liverwurst. Actually, I've bought liverwurst a couples time in the last year or so- it's not bad.

    I used to work with a guy that worked at Oberweiss Dairy, a high-end dairy company in the Midwest. They sell fancy milk in glass bottles, expensive ice cream, and chocolate milk. He said he used to like chocolate milk until he saw how they made it. They start with a vat of milk and then dump a seemingly endless stream of 50lb sacks of pure sugar into it. He wouldn't drink it any more after visually seeing how much sugar is actually added.

    From kid days, Peanut butter, tuna fish, bologna and liverwurst sandwiches (not all of them in one sandwich!) chocolate milk, apple juice, regular milk as a drink.
    When I got older and subcontracted in a hotel, donuts and danish were all over the place in the mornings as well as typical brunch foods and while it seemed cool to get big free breakfast all the time, I had so much I got sick of it and never wanted it again. Plus I was getting an ulcer. I got sick of more stuff later in life but that's enough for now.

    We have a recipe for pizza crust that is made from cream cheese, melted mozzarella, and almond flour. Bake the crust, cool, add toppings, re-bake. It's really good!

    Greetings from Sunny New Jersey
    As a wee lad, I loved a tall, cold glass of milk...

    Nowadays I like it in my coffee, but pure, unadulterated milk - no thank you, ma'am.

    Vienna Sausage and saltines were a favorite for Boy Scout hikes.

    Yeah, I hear that Oncor loud and clear.
    My first wife couldn’t cook, so we had Oncor three times a week when I was in my early 20s. I must admit that I actually liked them at the time.

    Another one for me is liverwurst sandwiches. My Mom used to make them for us as kids. I probably haven’t touched it since 1965.

    My dad calls them “monkey dinks,” which is an apt and disturbing visual.

    When a student playfully takes verbal jabs at me, one of my favorite responses is “You look like the kind of person that drinks the juice out of the Vienna sausage (or tuna) can.” Usually stops them cold.

    I used to eat big thick Kraft's Mayonnaise sandwiches but that was gross. Now I eat good nutritious Big Thick Sandwiches made out of Kraft's Salad Dressing.
