Strange food phobias?

I always thought it was interesting how a seemingly normal food can be found distasteful by some people. My father has an aversion to raw onions and raw bananas, both for their textures (I have always found that odd, they are on the opposite extremes) I am not one to talk though, I have a huge aversion to anything containing bones. Whole chicken, T-bone steak, Buffalo wings, Fried chicken, Bone-in pork chops, Whole fish, I can't eat any of it because bones absolutely disgust and repulse me. I think the term is cartilogenophobia, and I have never heard anyone else afraid of bones!

What are your strange food phobias? Make me feel better about myself!
