    Strangest food you've ever eaten

    Foods that were eaten as a meal ... not eating a worm as a dare when you were a kid.

    For me it's a toss up between blood sausage ... yes it's what it sounds like, and a mustard sandwich (that's mustard between two slices of bread ... no butter ). The mustard sandwich was offered to us as lunch when we flew up to a remote northern fishing resort. You'd think they'd at least have some fish to offer

    Lobster and Crab. Everyone says it's a Crustacean. I know. I know. But it is just so the sea food industry can disguise the fact that people are really eating a giant sea insect.

    It was once the poor man's food. I've heard that they fed prisoners lobster. It wasn't until some rich dood (I forget who) staring eating it that became widely popular and a delicacy.

    I use to eat it when I was young, now it just grosses me out.

    I always thought octopus was a strange food. Just look at it.

    I saw one of my relatives chow down on some monkey brains or at least it looked like monkey brains.

    Actually it was used to fertilize fields and whatever was left over was fed to the slaves, and yes, it is related to the cockroach.

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I had fried smelts a couple of weeks ago. They were lightly breaded and seasoned. They were good but the pile served was enough for two. Had them in Yorktown.

    I'm a foodie and always had an interest in unusual foods.
    Had curry goat(Caribbean style), kimchi(Korean fermented cabbage),
    balut(Filipino boiled duck egg embryo), pickled sardines with onions in a foodstand(Netherlands),
    durian(a stinky fruit from Thailand), raw fish(sushi/sashimi),
    intestines(chicken, pork, beef) and I'm sure some other stuff I
    don't remember.

    Hands down (and disgusting): sea cucumber. I'll try just about anything once!

    Here's Wikipedia's description: "They are marine animals with a leathery skin and an elongated body containing a single, branched gonad." Sound's delicious.

    The weirdest (at least that's what everybody else says) is also my favorite breakfast food. Goat brain tacos. If they're out of goat brains, I'll settle for pig snout tacos.

    Should have said boiled duck egg embryo: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balut_%28egg%29
    I've also had salted duck egg(Filipino duck egg boiled/pickled in very salty water)
    also century egg(Chinese chicken or duck egg pickled for a few months).

    You wouldn't like eating with me. I had crab yesterday twice - crabs cakes at lunch and crab dip and crabs at a dinner party.
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    Same here. Sea Cucumber. It was OK until I found out what was.

    On a cold winter morning north of Spokane, WA, I was sitting on a rock enjoying the sunshine in the sub-freezing air. As I sat there, I was eating a moss that grows on exposed rock and the rock I sat on, in particular. It was bitter but it was the first food I had eaten in several days and I was enjoying life and a happy camper.

    If you soak a Sea Cucumber in salt brine, does it become a Sea Pickle?

    Must admit I've eaten what some Americans consider 'strange foods'.
    But they eat hotdogs (!), tacos, and drink strange chemical concoctions with names like coke, pepsi, root(?) beer . . .
    Have eaten kimchee, frog legs, squid, smelt, blood sausage, blood soup, brains and eggs, kidneys, cow's tongue, horse steak, goat, sparrows, pigeon, cow entrails soup, shark, muskrat, snail, eel and quite a few others . . . all quite delicous to my tastebuds!

    Wife and I had what was advertised as a "juicy steak" in a casino once. We are still wondering what a "juicy" is. It was quite red, fine grained, and slightly sweet. We suspect it was horse, but we'll never know for sure.

    OK I see nothing wrong with mustard, mayonaise or ketchup sandwiches. I have eaten all 3. If the mustard sandwich on butter on it... than that would be weird.

    The above is about as weird as my diet goes... although I like sushi and sashimi - I don't tend to see anything wrong with that however I don't like weird sushi - you know with sea urchin roe and stuff. I remember having to eat liverwurst sandwiches as a kid. I much prefer a mustard sandwich over that!

    I have had octopus, eel, crab, lobster... etc. My favorite being scallops. I do not like HOWEVER, oysters. Why would anyone want to eat a booger???? Also don't eat any organ meats - like brains, kidney, liver sweetbreads etc. GROSS!

    Curried armadillo (Tatou) in Trinidad
    Coquina stew in Trinidad.
    Real Brunswick stew here in the backwoods.
    Fruit de Mer in France.
    Sea Turtle in Trinidad (seriously fatty and gross).
    Alligator Snapper stew out of the pond (also fatty and gross).
    Crawdads caught in the creek and boiled in beer and Zaterans over a campfire.

    But the oddest was when my grandmother would have a friend bring her over a bunch of quail he shot.
    I would help her clean them in front of the fire. We would take the heads and toss them into the ashes.
    After a while one would dig them out of the ashes and pop the skulls with a nut ******* and dig the brain out with a pick. Reminiscent of boiled peanuts.

    Octopus was probably the strangest, certainly not rare though.

    The nastiest for me is calf's liver. Again not rare but there aren't enough onions in the world to make liver appetizing to me.
