    what's the STRANGEST food/thing you've eaten?

    some cultures have downright scary foods (to me) - take the 1,000 year egg, for instance...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Century_egg

    and other times you eat gross stuff on a dare.

    i'll start with grubs. not really big ones.

    mmmmm mmm... not yummy...

    and i ate a little grasshopper on a dare when i was about 10. less yummy.

    Deep fried shrimp head. Raw quail egg. Actually, probably going to have both of those later today.

    Toasted mealworms in high school. Tasted like the skin between a peanut and its shell.

    Nothing from earth is strange.


    I don't get this thread.

    But...ummm...Life Savers flavoured drink is pretty scary to me. So I vote artificial foods.

    Sounds nasty, but many native people lived off of fresh from the animal (as in so fresh it's still hot) liver for a long time....from my understanding it's a really good source of Vitamin A.

    +1 - after watching Bear Grylls on Discovery's Man Vs. Wild, nothing's shocking.

    Dude scared some vultures away and ate from a dead zebra carcass. Just took his knife, cut a slab of zebra meat away, and ate it. Also, he climbed up some cliff, found a birds' nest, ate 1 egg (shell included), kept the other for later. Mama bird was all, like, WTF?!!

    Yes, it was an interesting experience. There are just certain animals that you are not supposed to eat a lot of liver from. You have to be careful.

    Wild boar, eel, ostrich, reindeer, horse, deep-fried shrimp heads, turtle, alligator, beef tongue, octopus, squid, but nothing really "strange" on the order of insects and such.

    Curried armadillo. Had it in Trinidad, it's called a Tatoo, there. Great food.
    Also had a sea turtle there, very greasy, awful.

    Beer milkshake with BlueBell vanilla ice cream and Budweiser beer. Inspired by the Nick Nolte character in Cannery Row.

    Chocolate covered Macaroni and Cheese- you see, as a kid I was on a camping trip and we brought Mac & Cheese but forgot the milk. But, we checked the ingrediants and discovered that Swiss Miss has milk in it. The rest was history.

    I eat a lot of strange things down here - most of the time without knowing. Recently I ate the meet from the head of a pig - wasn't bad too greasy. Also, I had snapping turtle recently - again, not too bad. I have so far avoided Mountain Oysters.

    which reminds me... if you ever have the water to your home turned off for nonpayment and you decide to brush your teeth... rinsing with beer is mostly unpleasant.

    now that i think back, i recall ingesting a cigarette butt when i drank what had apparently become a beer can ashtray. always grab the right can. ALWAYS.

    ahhh, memories...
