food phobic

so, i've been thinking about food phobias recently, and while i haven't done enough reading and thinking to write a full post about them yet, i do want to lay some groundwork for a future article. i will hint that i do have a new anthropological experiment in the works looking at food color phobias. (actually, i have two projects in the works, one long term and one short, but more on both later...)

for, now, here's a list of food phobias from hub space's comprehensive list of food phobias. personally, some gross me out enough to be afraid of that phobia. do tell me what you think. or if you have a food phobia/picky eating habit of your own that's not listed. i'm interested. :)
