    What is the strangest or grossest thing you've seen someone eat?

    My dad used to eat peanut butter and onion sandwiches - really grossed me out.  I am very "funny" about food combinations and don't even let different foods touch each other on my plate. Unfortunately I have a family with some very strange tastes! 

    What is the strangest or grossest thing you've seen someone eat? What would it take for you to be willing to try it?

    You didn't specify whether live or in person, but by your own explanation I assume you mean in person. My ex loved peanut butter and bacon sandwiches, and it took me 30 years to try that combination. Now I love them. I didn't actually see this, but my mother said that my aunt loved to pile pinto beans on frosted cakes when she was a child.  Mom couldn't stand the idea of her sister's ruining her mother's delicious cakes with beans.

      I don't do bacon at all so not for me smile, but I wonder if I could make myself do the beans on cake - now that I think about it - probably not that either lol

    Dog food. Yes, my friend took a dare when we were youngsters. He ate half of a can of the "wet" kind of dog food and actually kept it down.

      You reminded me. I used to catch my young one at age 2 stealing the cat's Purina Cat Chow.

    First off, I eat peanut butter and onion sandwiches!  lol.  You haven't lived until you have tried it.  To me, the grossest thing I have ever seen anyone eat is ketchup on eggs.  Each time I see someone do that I get nauseous.

    I won't be trying it during my lifetime.

      my significant other loves his ketchup and eggs - I can't stand that thought either, but a lot of people do it. He'll put ketchup on anything not me, can't do that one either smile as for the onions, I shall go to my grave having never lived wink LOL

      I love ketchup on eggs or better yet, salsa or Pace piquante sauce. My dad wouldn't do ketchup either, so you're not alone.

    I had a classmate in high school who would eat live insects. To get a rise out of people, he'd throw an alive roach or grasshopper in his mouth.

    OK; Now I didn't try this one but I saw it first as a photo on the menu and then one of the nearby tables ordered it.
    It was a very large breast, I'm guessing duck or goose but almost big enough to be turkey. The meat is infested with, well maggots. I don't have any idea what species of maggots they were they appeared to be larger than your standard fly.
    The meat is cooked so that all of the maggots come out and are snatched off with chop sticks.
    Now perhaps the strangest that I wanted to try, but they were out. Snake soup with a cobra rising from the middle (cooked)
    Same restaurant in Chengdu had both items.

      omg maggots? barf. I'd rather eat anything else on the answers than that.  Yep that is purely and truly beyond disgusting...

    When we visited China, we went to a restaurant and they served sea cucumber soup. I guess it reminded me of the times we played with sea cucumbers at the beach and threw them at each other for fun. In the soup, they were square pieces of slimy weirdness. I know many people love it, but I just couldn't eat it.

      This seems odd to me, but not as gross as some others. I don't think I'd want to try it though either smile

    The strangest and grossest thing I saw someone eat on television is Kangaroo testicles.

      Yeah, that's pretty gross. A lot of different animal testicles are actually cooked and eaten surprisingly (and grossly) enough. Brains too - talk about nasty - bleh.
