Most disgusting taste (of normal foodstuffs)

The taste of cooked root vegetables (carrots, turnips etc) makes me retch. (raw is yummy).
The very smell of honey is repulsive to me, let alone the taste which is indescribably disgusting.
I'm wondering whether this is because they taste different to me than to others, or because my brain (taste receptor thingies?) just don't like the taste?
(These are 'dislikes' I have not grown out of - as opposed to childhood dislikes like sweet peppers and wine).

What do YOU find repulsive that others seem to enjoy?
