No Mushrooms, Thank You

Welcome to No Thank You, a linkup about the food you hate, despise and simply don’t get along with. It’s a quick and fun way to share the reasons you avoid the gross foods you hate – and a great way to meet others who share similar tastes. I’d love for you to join us and add a link to your own blog post!

Mushrooms are the grossest food on this planet. I first encountered this fleshy fungus in fifth grade on a frozen supreme pizza. We ran out of cheese pizza and my mom thought I wouldn’t notice if she removed the onions, peppers, mushrooms, sausage and pepperoni. The flavors lingered but I continued to eat because of her heart-felt efforts. Then disaster struck – I noticed a slimy, squishy thing in my mouth and looked down to see half a mushroom on my pizza. She missed a mushroom and I have despised them ever since.


  • Eating a mushroom is like eating a slimy leech.
  • They’re weird, puffy, and look like garbage thrown on a pizza or pasta or steak or omelette.
  • Mushrooms are literally fungus.
  • If you find yourself in a mushroom field and pick the wrong one, it can kill you.
