View Full Version : What's the weirdest thing you've eaten?

Dec 10th, 2001, 08:04 PM
Or, weirdest combination of foods you've tried?

I've eaten chocolate-covered ants, and I love Fritos mixed into vanilla ice cream. Mmm, mm, good.

In South Africa there was a restaurant where they served some African foods, different kind of insects, worms, snakes..

Brains! Yuck!

I've eaten Dog chocolate drops, they aint as nice as ours.

Rattlesnake. It tastes like chicken. White meat.

Dec 11th, 2001, 01:43 AM
Kangaroo ... Ox Tail .... Ox Tounge .... Octopus <img src="redface.gif" border="0">

I ate chicken feet, was yukky, the brought out these fried feet on a plate, looked so inhumane. The meat was quite sweet though.

Also had Seaweed and crocodile

Suddenly, my ants don't seem so weird anymore.

What's wrong with octopus? It tastes nice and squishy... <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Dec 11th, 2001, 12:36 PM
Well my favorite snack from time to time is kosher pickels and bananna sandwhich. <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">

Dec 11th, 2001, 12:39 PM
snake cooked in 7 different ways, dog, and bat.

Did not really like the bat I must say <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> .

Dec 11th, 2001, 01:01 PM
maggots. Not fish-bait ones, these are like um, quite hard on the outside but juicy on the inside.

It's kinda weird to think you're eating maggots, but I like them although I've not had them since I was about ten years old or so.

Triangular sandwiches! <img src="eek.gif" border="0">

ah and yes snails of course <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

Dec 11th, 2001, 01:21 PM
It's a toss-up between vegemite (no offense to the Aussies and Kiwis of the world, but unless you grow up with it that stuff is nasty) and tofu pot-pie http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/smilie/pukeface.gif

Dec 11th, 2001, 02:38 PM
Did I hear somone criticise Tofu????? Surely not! It is second only to Quorn in the vegetarian Hall of Fame.

Goodness knows what they used to put in the pork sausages I used to have for dinner many moons ago.

Trotters, snouts, and eyes are frankly the least of my concerns....

Dec 11th, 2001, 02:50 PM
No, my dear Mr. Wonderful, not tofu: tofu POT-PIE. It was brought into my house one year for Thanksgiving (despite the fact I'd already made 2 veggie entrees for my guests). I've had many fine tofu dishes in my lifetime, this was not one of them.

Semen. <img src="graemlins/lick.gif" border="0" alt="[Lick]" /> <img src="graemlins/angel.gif" border="0" alt="[Angel]" /> Very exotic. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

When I was in Zimbabwe a few years back, I helped some cousins of mine catch locusts and grashoppers, stripped them of wings and their abdomen and fried them. I must say they were quite tasty! I also had turtle, not particularly nice, very stretchy....

Most recently I had chocolate cake with ketchup.<br />Absolutely disgusting. My brother gave it to me.

Not so strange, A spinach sandwich.

Dec 11th, 2001, 09:25 PM
Oddly enough Im not sure Ive ever had Tofu... <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

As I am someone for whom cooking involves little more than turning on a microwave...can I ask what a pot-pie is???

Other than a pie in a pot of course...(Im guessing) <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

Dec 11th, 2001, 11:18 PM
Once i had udder....Didn't know what it was when I was eating it cause they only told me afterwards. It wasn't bad actually but....udder....it sounds so icky... <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

Dec 11th, 2001, 11:28 PM
Im a vegetarian <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0"> So...probaly french fries dipped into a vanilla milkshake.Yummmm..

Dec 11th, 2001, 11:32 PM
A 5 pence coin.

I was young.... i thought it was chocolate <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0"> <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

Cheops, really? Chocolate covered ants and fritos mixed with ice cream....wow, no wonder you spew crap all over the board. Give a big hand for cheops!

What's up with you, Pea? Don't be a bulletin board terrorist. Let bygones be bygones.

I don't suppose Peas and Carrots count <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> oh damn <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

I've never had Sea food , just don't like squishy things.

I've never had anything weird really so i must go for Mint flavored Mushy Peas which i got by mistake .... never again.

Dec 12th, 2001, 03:13 PM
No problem, Pea.

Apr 28th, 2002, 11:48 AM
Sushi. It just grossed me out. I know people are totally lovin it but it just made me wanna hurl. :rolleyes:

Apr 28th, 2002, 02:20 PM
I could quote more freaky things I eat from time to time (even if I don't mention Tweety-knows-what), but the weirdest thing to my taste was what was supposed to be a grated yam root, served in a Japanese restaurant in Paris. I mean, I usually like yam roots when served, say, with glutinous rice :rolleyes:, but I haven't understood to this day how one could want to eat it under that weird, tasteless, almost liquid, impossible to grasp (with chopsticks at least) form. It was simply weird.

I know that mine isn't as grossed as some of you guys but I have a habbit of eating cereal with ice cream :lick: :lick: :lick:

Apr 29th, 2002, 12:53 PM
Frogs and Rabbits :) taste liked chicken :)

Apr 29th, 2002, 12:59 PM
Rabbit's quite good, isn't it?

Apr 29th, 2002, 01:08 PM
maybe for you could sounds disgusting but here in mexico there are some food that could be "exotic" for the strange eyes, food like grasshoppers, "jumiles" (a kind of bugs) moskito eggs, maguey worms, corn mushrooms, cactus, flowers (yes flowers) and a lot of difernt and strange food (for you) but delicious. sadly many ppl prefers not to taste it , cos they have disgust just at know what r that. bad, we need to leave the prejudges away

Apr 29th, 2002, 01:53 PM
LOL @ Aloy!

Um...someone here ate dog?! Oh my!

Once I ate elk burgers! I almost ate crawfish, but I couldnt do it!

yeah. i've had that too. at dimsum. it sucked. my parents liked it though.

Apr 29th, 2002, 05:04 PM
Hmm, whatever fried squid legs are called...kalimari?:confused:

I ate it on holiday, ugh, it was horrible. Like eating rubber, but without the flavour.:p

Apr 29th, 2002, 05:16 PM
My own cooking :o Yeah it's that bad and weird!! But I dunno what the wierdest thing I have eaten? I guess it was this weird looking fruit in Thailand which smelt awful! And the taste was just as bad! I can't remeber what it was called but it was big and had spikes all over it!

Apr 29th, 2002, 06:15 PM
I think I ate a cat before but didn't know it at the time. They said it was chicken so I believed them. pweh pweh!!! yuck

Apr 29th, 2002, 07:03 PM
I ate shark ! Yukky

Apr 29th, 2002, 07:13 PM
Izzy, I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like calamari. I don't know what people like about it, it's rubber! I once ate raw squid, that must have been the yuckiest thing I ever ate. YUCK YUCK YUCK and it takes ages to swallow because it's rubber!

Apr 29th, 2002, 07:18 PM
all kinds of intestins I think...

Apr 29th, 2002, 07:25 PM
The weirdest thing I've eaten, or tasted rather, was an oyster souflette(sp). That was the worst tasting thing that's ever been in my mouth:eek: I don't even know what was in it. The weird thing was that it looked really delicious.

Apr 29th, 2002, 07:57 PM
i dont think that i can answer this one.....and get away with it

Apr 29th, 2002, 08:10 PM
You can say it, Radronald. As long as you've never eaten human meat, people will forgive you;)

Apr 29th, 2002, 08:17 PM
I ate ostrich once *yuck*

what is it ???????????
plz tell me

Apr 29th, 2002, 08:44 PM
alligator (it was YUMMY!), sea urchin and jelly fish (the latter two were disgusting!)

Oh yeah, and ostrich, but I thought it was really good.

Apr 29th, 2002, 08:55 PM
I LOVE rabbit! tastes just like chicken (seriously) Oh yea, Ive also had alligator in Florida but it was so disgusting!

Apr 29th, 2002, 10:12 PM
okay, okay.....

tw@t and c@ck

wtih whipped cream

you asked for tit.

;) :drool: :bounce: :lick: :p

Apr 30th, 2002, 06:40 AM
I guess the weirdest thing I've eaten is bear meat. My cousin was elk hunting when a bear came after him, and he had to kill it to keep it from attacking him. He had the bear meat ground up and made into patties, and we grilled them and ate them just like hamburgers.

Hmm, some of the above don't sound that weird to me. I've had emu, which is okay. Get served calimari all the time. I call it "rubber bands", but some people can manage to make it come out tender. What's so odd about shark? It's a rather nice, sweet fish, at least the stuff we get here.

Crocodile steak, though, is one I really don't like. It's a rather fatty, sickly-seeming meat IMHO.

Apr 30th, 2002, 11:16 AM
kangooroo's nice:)

Apr 30th, 2002, 07:48 PM
what is emu???

Apr 30th, 2002, 07:51 PM
I once ate chicken hearts, but that was only because nobody told me what they were...:eek: :)

Like ostrich.

Someone at my school used to farm ostriches and sold them for the meat, I never tried it but it looks like venison. (Yuck)

Apr 30th, 2002, 07:58 PM
And what do the Scots (and maybe Brits) think of Haggis?

THAT is emu. :p

Apr 30th, 2002, 08:49 PM
Never saw one before. Is that common in the US?

Apr 30th, 2002, 08:58 PM
I've stared at this thread for fricken days now...delving the depths of my head to try and think of anything remotely weird that I have eaten.

Do any of you people out there remember the lovley Beethoven dog? yes you know the one, the big hairy St-Bernard? When I was in South Korea i tried some rump meat. Nothing special. Persians? Garfield?? remember. Yes I have tried that. It doesn't taste nice.:confused:

And theres the odd, Caviar, Es Car Gougouts, Maryian, and Strovalovalov
