Raw oysters are like snot, steamed are actually pretty good.


The only thing I can say that I absolutely don't like is spinach, can't stand the stuff.

Pizza at the mess hall at Thule Air Base, northern Greenland.

At least I think it was supposed to be pizza.

Also tuba in Cebu City, Philippines (coconut wine). Might have been spoiled. Like drinking a rotten egg out of the shell. But I was being stared at by about a hundred children of various ages who had never seen a longnose before, filling the house and looking in every window and door, very politely, and so I went thru the whole glass without tossing my cookies, somehow.

Whoa, I love escargot. Sauted in garlic and shallots, flamed with some Pernod, then placed under the broiler with some hazelnut compound butter grated parmesan cheese untill nice and brown, good stuff.

One awful dinning experience was at a dinner theater and you know its bad when the salad is warmer then the prime rib.

I am not a picky eater. Growing up with my grandparents,I have tried many different things that most people probably would not consider eating these days. There is not that much I don't like,or wont try BUT....

Spahgetti Squash is disgusting...(so are Lima Beans for that matter).

I also had a really gross Baskin Robbins Mocha/Cookies and Cream milkshake at the state fair last year that looked good in the picture they were advertising but really made me gag when I tasted it *shudder*.

It's amazing what people in other cultures eat. Cat, dog, snakes, bats, rats, insects. Perhaps to those people the things we eat are just as repulsive.

interesting.....I was pressured into eating escargot once, did not enjoy it at all....I am also opposed to oysters, but one thing I have absolutely refused to try is crawfish.....have you seen where those things live?.....

now, that being said, I grew up in a Dutch family......one of the family delicasies is balkenbrij.....loosely translated, headcheese.....

now the secret of making headcheese is that you scrape all the tiny bits of meat that remain on the head of a pig after butchering....then you add the liver, kidneys, heart and various other bits of flesh that normally are not eaten and you grind them up......this concoction is then fried like loose meat hamburger, spooned onto a slice of bread, covered in corn syrup and eaten with gusto....

prospective inlaws are given the headcheese test before being admitted into the family....we tolerate no faint hearted projeny.....

Thai food. I found out after the fact that every time a group of engineers would come into town they would take someone new (who had never eaten Thai food before) out to lunch for Thai food. They would order for the person since the person didn't know what to order, then sit back and have a great laugh at thats persons expense. I have no idea what I ate but it was terrible. I also loved being pranked like that, no hard feelings at all. I'm a bit of a prankster so when someone gets me, I have to tip my hat to them and admit it was a job well done. Those guys got me good!

As a teenager, I tried oysters. It was like having a huge ball of snot lodged at the back of my throat. Gotta be the most gross thing I've ever eaten. Totally disgusting.....

Oh wait a second, I've also had a side dish at a mid eastern restaurant that we would normally use for a garnish. You want nasty tasting? That was it. I will never eat any mideastern food again. Just plain disgusting.

The only disgustingly awful thing I have eaten that comes to mind is 'menudo' since I don't like cow stomach or hominy, which are it's main ingrediants.

Oddly enough though, I do enjoy hominy grits for breakfast occassionally.

Something I ate in an Indian restaurant. Tasted like olive and roses, with extra olive and rose flavor. I almost threw up!

The worst tasting crapola I've ever had in my life was some east indian cusine... It was disgusting. We'd gone to a mid eastern restaurant. They had the nastiest tasting dishes. One dish looked like a dish of baby poop and tasted like gruel... Nasty, nasty, nasty. I don't know how mid eastern people can eat foods that have disgusting flavors. Needless to say we've never biten the bullet and tried eating it again. Ain't gonna happen... I'd rather eat a plain bologna sandwich. :coffee:

Blec, blec, blec......I haven't eaten that stuff in decades. It was a cheap way to eat back in the 70's. It seems the noodles and/or macironi would always become mushy. Nasty stuff. From then on hubs and I always made homemade meals. But no more of that stuff......

Liver.

Smells great in the frying pan, tastes like shit on the plate.

Liverwurst is another story. Thinly sliced liverwurst on rye with onions and limburger cheese and a little horseradish, now that's the shizzle.

Yep, I have and it was about three decades ago. Actually, near as I can remember it just tasted like a beef roast. But is has been a very long time so maybe I'm remembering it tasting better than it really did. I don't think so tho'. It didn't seem all that bad.

I have not tried eating head cheese. After seeing it in the deli sitting there looking so damn gross, I have never been able to even think about eating that stuff. It is about the nastiest looking stuff I've ever seen. Disgusting.

However, I have caught and eaten crawfish. Once we caught them we just put them in a big pot of boiling water......Once they cooked for whatever time it was, we'd pull them apart and eat them. They just tasted fishy to me, but I'm not much of a fish eater. Never bothered to eat them again.

I tried Limburger Cheese once... just out of curiosity.... it was every bit as bad as they say it is. Think of the stinkiest cheese you ever smelled then multiply it by 10 or 100.

I also tried a hot sauce named "Dave's Insanity Sauce", again, just out of curiosity. A colleague at work thought I was crazy and recommended that I toss it in the trash immediately. Uncowed, that night I went home and put a pin prick of the stuff on my tongue......... my entire mouth went numb from the intense heat..... I then threw the bottle in the trash.

That sounds like the homemade hot sause my brother use to make. Need to wear rubber gloves while making it. One drop in a bowl of chile and you can watch the sweat pour down as they eat. Getting it on your skin directly would raise blisters. I said, And your eating that?

Those ultra hot sauces are boosted with capsasin extract... which add no flavor. The super hot sauces appeal to people who want to be tough or something. If a hot sauce does not add to the flavor of the dish you're putting it on, then there is no sense in having it. Plus those sauces have hurt some people that have tried them... definitely not worth the risk.

I ran across a new hot sauce made by the Tabasco sauce people that is made from Habenero peppers... it's hot but very tasty.

Beef liver isn't bad. And fried chicken livers are terrific. When you cook them and then smash them up into gravy it only makes the gravy that much richer tasting. Very flavorful. Pork liver is gross. Too grizzily for me. And I can't stand liverwurst. That's some nasty stuff and smells awful.
