    What are some of the odd food you'll eat....

    Me , I will eat oysters sardines and pickled pigs feet, i earned to eat them by being with my father.
    He traveled a lot as a salesman and when he was home I spent time with him, I'm also partial to anything that's got a spicy kick.

    Well... I noticed that on some of the gas station cashier's counters in Spain - you know in those little displays where you'd expect to see packs of gum or candy bars - they stocked little cans of pickled squid. With, or without ink. icon_redface.gif
    Sorry, never was in the mood to try it.

    I've also been places where the guest always gets the chicken head or the fish head in his soup. You can't refuse it. Generally too busy controlling the gag reflex to remember the taste or texture. icon_redface.gif

    My other half is a Lebo, so I eat all kinds of good for you, odd things, and interesting combos. Lebanese food in general is full or quality ingredients. I never tire of it. Think, Hummus, Dips, Lamb, Spices, Pita, Pistachios, Olive Oil, GARLIC, Red Onions, Feta, passionate flavors.

    I don't consider anything odd with what you've listed.

    Ohno saidI love andouillette *awaits shitstorm*


    I had to google what that is, and that's pretty normal where I came from.

    As for myself, the oddest would have to be gelatin duck blood flavor with some salt, pepper, and a type of herb. It always makes me gagged, and I could never keep it down when I tried it younger.

    Also, I used to love balut, but being in the US for too long and now it seems disgusting and cruel.

    I've tried a whole lot of different foods, from the 123 countries I've visited all my life. One time though, at a nice dinner with a lot of people, I put something into my mouth that made me wretch. It was so God-awful, there was no way I could wash it down. It was so bad. I looked around to see if anybody else was experiencing this problem, and it looked like I was the only one. I had to get this crap (some kind of foul) out of my mouth. I had a linen napkin and hated to do it, but I just quickly and carefully deposited the offending food into the napkin. Then, I excused myself and took the napkin into the kitchen of this house we were visiting, and gave it to one of the help. I just said, "Sorry to give this to you, but I got something bad and just couldn't swallow it". She got rid of it for me. Man - 30 years later, and I can still remember that morbid taste.

    Grilled beef heart--> delicious!
    Grilled tripe--> even better! (Coat with spicy sauce, wrap around skewer. Grill. Eat the awesome-crunchy-outside-chewy-inside awesomeness!)

    I used to say I'd try anything. Then I was offered grasshoppers the size of my thumb. The antennae skeeved me out.

    Lobster, shrimp, etc. are bugs. Undersea bugs but still bugs.

    How about haggis?

    I find tripe gross. It's a bit too far down the digestive system for me.

    But I have eaten Spam every now and then. I'm sure I don't want to know what's in that.

    I am, too, and it is funny to me how weird people in our small town thought our food was and how hard it was to get "our stuff" as a kid.

    Now you can find four flavors of hummus in a convenience store.

    The weirdest and least appetizing food I ever experienced was in Iceland. Although I didn't try it, one of their "Delicacies" is called hakarl, which is slabs of shark meat that have been buried in the sand and allowed to ferment.

    We were served giant translucent seabird eggs, soft-boiled and served cold with hard dark bread, and lamb which had been ground and boiled to the consistency and appearance of a giant pencil eraser.

    My dad and I were describing this to friends of his on a bus going into NYC a few years ago, and when we got off a young guy stopped me and said he overheard us and he is Icelandic. I was a little embarrassed because we maybe insulted his culture, and surprised because you rarely encounter Icelanders in this part of the country, but he was cool about it and we're Facebook friends now.
