I've eaten alligator...dove...squirrel. All kinds of cheeses with rinds and such (which some consider strange).
My grandfather swore I used to eat cow brains scrambled in eggs with him when I was a very young child (i.e. less than five years old). I have no memory of this though, and can't imagine that I would have been okay with eating brains - sounds pretty nasty to me, at least now. I didn't totally believe that you could get them! He said you could order them from the butcher. *shrug* Maybe someone else knows more about that? He says I ate froglegs with him once as well, which I can believe.
Cat Fryes = Oklahoma (really...don't need to explain that one...think of all the parts of a Cow's anatomy you see at a butcher shop...and the ones you don't. Yep...it's those...?!Needless to say...for me it was just a sample...some folks were going back for seconds and thirds...Yikes!) Bullfrog legs=Louisiana (probably not that weird to the locals) Timber Rattlesnake=North Carolina (taste like chicken...but then so does everything when you try to describe it...right? ) Reindeer = Norway...(probably not too unusual from venison...but try buying it at the supermarket in the U.S.) Flowers=Costa Rica (don't know what kind of flower it was...but they were good with eggs!) A Goldfish=College Party...back in the day...Thank God...I don't remember what it taste like )
That's all I can think of...and these are plenty enough!
Do they really have chocolate covered ants, and do they eat big bugs, and monkey brains in some places...? Yikes!
I haven't eaten many weird things that I remember - once in awhile a fly, but not on purpose. I had beans n ham for lunch. had it for dinner last night and lunch yesterday. Had it for breakfast on Sunday and dinner Saturday night. I can't keep any friends for long.
I had poi when I was in Hawaii. It is revolting. It is wrong. It is the epitamy of evil. It is thrust regurgitation from the bowels of death. It's a disgrace to be created, let alone digested, underneath the American flag. It must be burned at the stake!
Wow, some interesting answers here! I'm a big chicken when it comes to trying different foods. However, my mother-in-law has eaten possum...I've been at (filipino) parties where they were cooking goat meat. Not a great aroma at all...so I couldn't ever bring myself to tasting it. LOL!
I think goat depends how it is cooked.. Eaten it several times, more taste than mutton or lamb.. As to the filipino parties... pigs intestines with pigs blood, cant't remember what they call it, but I could not force myself to try it..
Do you have a weird food habit?Most people have something about themselves that is unusual, and many have to do with food. I have at least two: I will eat the thing on my plate that I like the least first and I usually...
