I tried mince meat pie once, never again. I can't say my pie-loving extended family has it on the holiday table very often; every few years it debuts, one or two people have a nibble, and whoever made it takes home most of a pie.
Also, if I want my mouth to feel minty, I will brush my teeth. Spearmint, peppermint, anything tingly, I do not consider "pleasure food". I blame toothpaste for that, as I hated brushing as a child.
Anything with nuts is low on my list too. I'll eat it; on occasion I will like it (peanut brittle is an occasional fav), but anything that makes the nuts seem an afterthought is ruined by their presence.
RE: brussels sprouts, I have never seen them at a holiday dinner and did not try them until I was an adult. I can and will eat them if they have been frozen at some point; this lessens the bitterness, and I find them halfway tastey. However, it is all I can do to not lose the rest of my dinner when I bite into a picked-and-served-fresh bussel sprout. I can't recall succeeding in swallowing one yet...fortunately this trial has not happened in public.
