I'm a true southerner, and actually had to take some sort of etiquette class in college (ok, it was an easy A, but still...) The professor went off in a digression about mint juleps at one point and said they were completely disgusting. He hated catering parties that requested them because he knew no one would like them. So you are apparently justified in not trying a mint julep.

to me, drinking a mint julep seems like swallowing mouthwash. I'm told that it's not like that & they are good...but, I can't bring myself to try one.

soft cheeses: soft mazzarella w/ sliced tomatoes with fresh basil & olive oil. OMG. Love it.

brussel sprouts are yummy.
most fish is yummy.
cosmopolitans are strong. (or at least the one I had was strong)
thai food: never tried it.
escargot: tried it. It sucked. Gross. And yes, you are aware of the fact that you are eating a snail.
caviar: tried it. gross. won't eat it again.
calamari: chewy. Not great enough for me to eat again.
jalapenos, and most peppers: too hot for me. I don't even put black pepper on my food.
mushrooms: are soooooooooo yum.
cottage cheese: I can eat about 2 tablespoons a year. It's not my favorite.
