When I was a kid, going round to my nans and having a fry up was great... one of the main delicacies I used to look forward to as part of the fine grub that was served up (what is it with grandparents and excellent fry-ups?) was the black pudding... oh what a treat it was.

When I was 14 though (yes, it took me that long to find out, but I was a vegetarian for about 3 years) and someone told me it was made of blood... I never had it again UNTIL a few weeks ago when I finally brought myself to eat a piece at the pub (it was free)... it was just like old times... mmmm

Mind you, one food I will not eat now is Chicken Nuggets, especially after seeing "Tonight with Trevor McDonald" when they filmed how they were made secretly... enough to put you off them for life.

Hot Dogs -- I have not eaten them for about 6 years now.

Any type of poultry product (chicken, turkey, etc.) I haven't eaten for about 3 years now.


Once, when I was about 8, we told our next-door neighboor (while she was eating a McDonald's hamburger) that hamburger came from cow. She didn't believe us, but when the grown-ups told her, she started to cry. ;)

In Belgium we have this thing called BIFI, it's kind of a dry saucage packed in a piece of plastic, I used to eat tons of em, but then I read what was in them and I never ate one since.
I'm also a vegetarian now for about 2 years so I don't eat ANY meat for that matter.

Well I try to stay away from Jello since it is made from cow hooves, or is it bone, either way YUCK. However, I still do jello shots because atleast those will fuck me up.

I would never eat anything made out of blood, ewww!

I dont see how people can be vegetarian. I don't know what my meals would consist of!

It's still spaghetti bolognaise, but without the meat. Doesn't taste quite as good anymore ;)

In general I'm pretty good at forcing myself to eat green crap or whatever. After all, it's only in your mouth for a couple of seconds before it's gone so it's not that hard. :)

When I was 8 we ate some kind of meat, I didn't know what it was and I liked it. After we ate it, I heard my mum saying that it was ox-tongue. Since I know it was tongue, I didn't eat it anymore....

I had haggis once and thought it was really nice and then someone told me it was actually a sheep's stomach or is wrapped in the lining of a sheep's stomach :eek: Needless to say I have never eaten it again!

Funnily enough... I'd actually have haggis again even now I know what it was. It's a Burns night thing down here though, I hate it when English people celebrate Burns Night as a much as I hate English people celebrating St Patricks Day.

Anyway.

I found out tonight that eggs come from inside a chicken! Eurgh! Not having those again. I thought they came from the egg plant ;)
