    I rarely look at bread anymore which is odd since I gave myself permission to have the occasional wheat day.

    Others:

    Coffeemate non-dairy creamer.
    Non-pastured half 'n' half (pus in the milk *shudder*).
    Ground beef from unreliable sources.
    "Diet" pudding.
    Mayo from the grocery store.
    Those big bottles of bad veggie oils.

    Junk that I miss:
    -The occasional cookie or brownie. Not a biggie, but still.
    -Chips and cheese in a jar. That's so bad, but I did love that cheese in a jar. "With Real Cheese!" Sometimes I ate it out of the jar with no chips just using a spoon. Saving calories don'tcha know.
    -Pasta on more than a once or twice a month basis. It is easy to make.

    I haven't really had to get passed any primal foods, but I won't eat some stuff.

    -I would never eat monkeys or apes because I consider them my brothers. There are other animals at the top of the food chain that I'd be reluctant to eat also.
    -I won't eat frog legs because I recently read how they're processed. It's cruel, even for a goofy frog.
    -I can't bring myself to eat turtle because my silly brain can "hear them scream." (Silence of the Lambs reference.)
    "Right is right, even if no one is doing it; wrong is wrong, even if everyone is doing it." - St. Augustine

    B*tch-lite

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Can't you taste the vegetable oils and soy in normal milk chocolates?
    When I try and have something under 70% cocoa, it is usually either ridiculously sweet (like eating 5 sucrose sweeteners at once) or has a weird, distinctly veg-oily/soy-oily aftertaste.
    If the cocoa content is under 50%, I will CERTAINLY taste any weird oils in it. It genuinely puts me off chocolate-coated almonds, which I used to adore. I don't even consider them a treat any more.

    uh???!! what ??? berries bitter and unsweet ? I'd be damned!
    I live near a rather large forest north of Copenhagen where there are a few clearer areas with berry bushes, in particular raspberries. My wife, mother-in-law and myself must be the only people collecting them when they are ripe, and I tell you, there is NO NEED to sweeten them! Eat them on the spot and you feel you are just at the right place at the right time

    I lived in North America for a few years. I tasted Hershey choc only once, and vowed to never do that again. This is not chocolate, this is something entirely different and absolutely disgusting. Just the smell ... jeeze, never had to cope with such a rancid smell like that before. My North-American colleagues had no problem ingesting that crap. There is such a HUGE difference between European and North-American tastes when it comes to such things as chocolate ...

    I meant in chocolates in general. AK was mentioning how he makes SOME exceptions, I assumed including Lindt, not Lindt exclusively.

    What's not food:
    - pretzels, breadsticks, and all the other crap they serve at restaurants to fill you up before the meal
    - peanuts never were
    - deep fried anything (my first thought is always "why would you do that to a poor [x]")
    - chips
    - Milk, white , and Hershey's chocolate
    - sandwich bread or toast
    - breakfast carbs (french toast, pancakes, awfuls, English muffins, etc)
    Thing I do still want on occasion
    - dry cereal (freeze dried fruit makes an awesome replacement)
    - homemade bread fresh out of the oven
    - homemade garlic bread fresh out of the oven
    - roasted sweet corn
    - Spice cake and Mexican Chocolate cake
    - Ferrero Rocher

    Primal things I've never developed a taste for
    - bacon mania: I'll go through maybe a small pack every few months. Just not a salt fiend.
    - eggplant: I don't care how it's cooked, it's nasty. Yes, even if you use your mama's super secret recipe everyone loves.
    - coconut oil: not big on the taste of coconut
    - pork: usually dry and bland. Very rarely have I had pork that didn't need sauce.
    - macadamias: again, kinda bland
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    ahhh I see. I was afraid you knew something I didn't. I eat those all the time.
