There are many Jewish traditional foods that I love, derived from my parent's Eastern European heritage. However the sight of PTCHA turned me off so that I could never bring myself to try it. Perhaps there are associations with my aformentioned jelly aversions.

@David: ...this is a Danish cheese that smells like old socks but tastes delicious.

As compared to Danish Blue Cheese whicj smells delicious but tastes like old socks :-)  I've tried a lot of different blue cheeses, and I never found anything I liked better than good old English Stilton

@ewertz: ...warning bells start to go off with me when "British" and "food" get used in the same sentence...

That's fighting talk (are you French by any chance? :-)

@ewertz: ...at that point it's just a matter of where your gag-reflex kicks in w.r.t. sweetness...

I consider myself fortunate that I don't have a "sweet tooth" -- which means I tend to not be lured by sweets and puddings -- plus I don't drink and sort of soda (Coke, DR Pepper, etc.)

@David: Boerewors (literally "farmer's sausage"  is like sausages but again spicier, and recipies for good boerewors spice are closely guarded secrets.

OMG! Now I'm starving! I want some!!!

@betajet: If you're half-Norwegian and half-Swedish, Ole is Danish.

Well, I'm glad that's cleared up :-)
