* ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}, mostly due to bad cooking, holds a special disgust for snails, fruitcake, and ''raisins''[[note]]While this was just because of Jim Davis' personal dislike of them, similar to the ''Peanuts'' example, [[AccidentallyAccurate grapes and raisins cause kidney failure in cats very rapidly -- they're one of the most deadly food items a cat could eat]].[[/note]]. Except, of course to mess with Jon's mind ("A Vacation from His Senses"). The fact that it worked says something. Shredded coconut -- he says it resembles "tiny albino [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes spiders]]." Also Spinach: "It looks bad, it tastes bad, it smells bad". (turns bowl over, spinach splats on table) "It even SOUNDS bad." And, relevant because he's a cat, he won't eat mice (birds and fish, however, are fair game.)

* On ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', Harley Quinn hates fish. Eating them makes her sick, and she's not too keen on handling them either. She will try to tough it out for the Joker's sake if one of his plans involves them though.

** In fact, every player character from the Franchise/TalesSeries (with the exceptions of [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Anise]] and [[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia Yuri]]) has a least favorite food; some games even have a mechanical display of this (such as said food having less of an effect, or even the opposite effect, on said character).

* People with Asperger's Syndrome, and other types of autism, tend to have hypersensitive taste buds and/or stomachs, hence they may have a strong aversion to certain types of taste or textures.
* The famous Creator/MontyPython sketch that provides the name for this trope was inspired by the fact that during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII SPAM was pretty much the only meat that wasn't heavily rationed. The relative scarcity of proper meat coupled with the relative availability of Spam meant that Spam would be the only meat-like substance that most Brits had access to, and in the case of children born shortly before or during the war, the only meat product they had ever known. Rationing continued for over a decade after the war due to the impoverished state the UK found itself in once the war was over. Naturally, by the time rationing had come to an end, the people of the UK were so sick and tired of Spam that many hoped they would never see another can of the stuff again. Sales took a dive off a cliff once proper meat became readily available again, and people who actually liked it were considered weird. Yet it still remained cheap compared to other meats and would stick around on restaurant menus (especially those of the greasy spoon variety) and in school meals (where the grease-soaked spam fritter was long iconic, if much reviled) for years to come (spam fritters were standard school fare at practically every level into at least the 1970s[[note]]Avant-garde chef Heston Blumenthal, born in 1966 and thus in primary school in the '70s, whose parents were quite well-off, relates distinctly remembering the awful spam fritters available at his distinctly upper-middle-class schools.[[/note]]).

* Unlike most examples on this list, aversion to coriander leaves (also known as cilantro) may be due to a genetic cause. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OR6A2 Variations in the OR6A2 gene]], which is associated with olfactory reception, can lead to coriander having a completely different and highly unpleasant taste for some people.

For people with this variation, cilantro has a flavor that is most often described as "dish soap", and it can so completely permeate what it's used in that it overwhelms the other flavors in the dish. Oddly, it may not apply to the spice "coriander" which is the seed of the same plant.

* In ''Literature/TheBelgariad'' by Creator/DavidEddings, ConMan and LoveableRogue Silk absolutely despises gruel. Even SupremeChef Polgara's gruel. Even if you call it "porridge". To the point that when he starts getting on her nerves more than usual, all Pol has to do to get him to straighten up is mention that she'll be making porridge for breakfast the next day.

** Aunt May uses this as a SpotTheImposter in a ComicBook/CivilWar-era comic, when The Chameleon was impersonating Peter. The real Peter apparently hated oatmeal raisin cookies ("Yes, even mine."), which Chameleon-Peter ate accepted without hesitation and ate with relish. (These particular cookies were also laced with sedatives.)

* In one ''ComicStrip/ForBetterOrForWorse'' comic, Elly tries to feed Farley some scraps leftover from dinner. John tells here that he won't eat the peas. Elly says there's no way he could possibly know that they're in there, and proceeds to mix the food together in Farley's bowl. Sure enough, Farley ate the food, while somehow managing to spit out every single pea in the process.
