Things that don't necessarily agree with you, but you eat anyway ...?

Are there things that don't necessarily agree with you (gastronomically speaking, of course), but that you eat anyway simply because you like the way they taste?

Sort of like, "I'll put up with the flatulence, the upset stomach, the minor allergic reaction if only I could have another bite of {blank} or another spoonful of {blank}."

With me, I love papaya (all kinds, Mexican, Hawai'ian, SE Asian, etc.) but it generally gives me an upset stomach. Goes away after a while, but still it doesn't really agree with me. Nonetheless, I just can't resist a good, ripe papaya.

So ... who do you listen to? Your gastro-intenstinal and/or immune system? Or, your tastebuds?

If the latter, what screams the loudest to you?
