Five Ways to Say You Don’t Like a Kind of Food:

  • “I don’t care for wine”: This sounds a bit more formal, polite, respectful and articulate. Use this in a more formal situation with your colleagues at a business lunch.
  • “I don’t like olives” : This is very direct and casual. We could use this around people we know well or around kids.
  • “I’m not a huge fan of licorice”
  • “Corn on the cob is/are not my thing.”
  • “I usually pass on burgers”
  • “I’m going to pass on the bread” : This can be used if we are at the dinner table and we don’t want to eat something but this could come off as rude if you are in a more formal situation or if the person has put in a lot of work cooking the meal so be careful with this one.
