    My kids are oddballs because they like pretty much everything. The don't live on mac & cheese, chicken fingers, french fries and goldfish crackers.

    You're also not native to Canada/US (right?), so your tastes are probably very different than those around you. What is "gross" in one society is normal fare in another.
    Well, I did not exactly grew up in a yurt on the wide and wild Mongolian steppes, and to be honest, I love all things Asian (save for Thai food) more than what I grew up with. There was no shortage of chocolate, lol! My folks still send us every kind of candy across the ocean....

    Oh, don't you know it! I had the absolute best time during my trip last fall back to my mom's village in Germany - eating stuff that no "sane" American would likely touch, even if they had heard of it at all. Loved every delicious, lip-smacking minute.
    I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

    Well no, but I remember reading a lot about growing up with Polish and/or Russian foods

    I think my taste buds are not aligned with the East Europenians as well... lol. Kimchi beats sauerkraut and I have no interest in kielbasa of any sort... I think that save for cabbage, beets and apples/pears, I have not eaten anything from my fav foods list growing up...

    Mmm, kielbasa :P well you know what I mean. A good amount of my typical American friends wouldn't touch half of the things I eat, and they're not even all that strange. And they're not open to trying foods from other cultures for whatever weird things might be in them or what it sounds like. That's more strange to me, but to each their own!

    I'm born in the US, but grew up exposed to other cultures from a young age so I pretty much like or will try anything.

    I like a lot of the foods you mention and am able to easily detach myself from many "bad" foods. Fruit and small amounts of sugar is my secret weapon.

    I never ate pizza regularly (like whole years without so much as a slice) till I was 38. Then I did get addicted to it, but dropped it just as easily as I picked it up, and may never eat it again.

    The question worries me more than the answer. Eat what you want to eat. If others don't like or understand it that is their problem not yours. No one should feel like an "oddball" no matter what their diet. I once had a roommate who only ate burnt egg whites... three times a day. So what? In matters of taste there is no debate. The point of eating is not to satisfy someone else's notion of what should be eaten. The point of eating is to satisfy and maintain yourself. What anyone else thinks is irrelevant.

    I have 'odd' tastes according to my work colleagues ... Apple with almond butter usually gets the most comments.
