Picky Picky Icky

So did you know most food aversions are textural? Oh, some are olfactory (spoiled food smells bad, as an evolutionary response to gnawing on last week's lion carcass in the savannas of Africa) but most are textural.
So, are you picky about what you eat? How many of these to you avoid if possible and do you know why? My number is six and its all textural (mushrooms, raisins, olives...). How about you?
Oh, and forgive the spelling - I stole it (as I steal many things) from one of those goes-round-and-round-on Facebook threads. So go ahead - how many of these do you avoid when possible, for reasons other than dieting or medical necessity?
Just so you know, off the list or not, my aversions are mushrooms, raisins, olives, eggplant, sardines, anchovies (score one for aroma there), beets and Brussels sprouts.
