    Just remember without a well written Disney Villain, there would be no point in the Heroes and the Princesses. Have you hugged a Disney Villain today?

    *nods*

    It was definitely the texture. It tasted fine, but I couldn't get past the squishiness.

    Wow, my list of weird stuff just isn't weird after reading what some of you have tried!!!

    Me: nopales (prickly pear cactus, tastes like a cross between green bean and avocado... yum!), elk, buffalo, pheasant, tripe (gross!), natto (it's not that bad if you don't have it straight up Frumious, I swear!).

    Nothing too exciting here.

    Hmm... depends what someone's idea of weird is, I guess. But topping the list would be:

    Unagi (freshwater eel)
    Ostrich burger (like really really REALLY tender beef)
    Fried gator (like really really REALLY rubbery chicken)

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    So I've heard... I'll need to get together some of the natto recipes sometime and try it. Off to tensuke market soon....


    Some of my favorite foods that most people won't try:

    turkey gizzards
    Turkey hearts
    squid
    octopus
    eel
    tofu
    seaweed
    frog legs

    My sis-in-law makes prickly pear jelly - it's soooo yummy! Just a total pain to collect and make.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    I love that prickly pear cactus candy... oh, and prickly pear jelly, while sometimes a little sourish, still good. Yum.

    Yes. Very much.

    I'd say that it's closest to catfish, maybe... somewhat. But not quite.

    Unless it's on sushi. Then it has the texture of the little sardines they put on pizza, but with a much better taste.

    Re: What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?

    Unagi (eel) is perhaps one of my favorite foods in the world! *drool*

    I eat tons of raw fish, but that isn't so wierd, I don't think. Although one of the grossest things I ever ate was raw Bonito. They usually use Bonito flakes in a lot of Japanese food and it is good, but the raw hunk of fish is just TOO strong tasting.

    I also hated buffalo burgers. Just greasy and really gamey. Yuck! Same with tripe (cow intestines), I think it is mostly the texture in that case.

    I guess I haven't eaten that many wierd things. Love escargot (snails), foie gras (goose liver, yes, horrible the way they get it but I have only had it once), fish roe (I don't say caviar because I can't afford it, I just mean the stuff they put on sushi...I will pick up anything that falls off the sushi and eat it alone) and black truffles.

    Re: What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?

    I love unagi, infact I had the best sushi roll the other day it was a shrimp tempora roll avacodo in the middle as well wrapped in seaweed then rice, topped with snow crab and bbq unagi and the whole thing was topped off with those red fish eggs. YUMMMY.

    Besides EEL I once chugged a whole bottle of log cabin maple syrup without stopping as a dare after watching super troopers. Turns out they had ice tea in those bottles for the movie. I was a tad bit hyper.

    Im bored, lets go to Disneyland.

    Re: What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?

    Why do people think eel is weird? They're just fish that happen to be shaped a bit differently from others. Do people equate them with snakes rather than fish? Some of my friends (who eat all sorts of fish, including monkfish, which are truly hideous beasts) won't even try eel. I don't get it. Americans seem to have a lot of food hangups. I got called "sick and gross" by a co-worker for eating scallops (one of the most benign shellfish imaginable).

    I also think that some of the bad experiences people have had with out-of-the-norm food is because it wasn't prepared properly. Alligator shouldn't be like super-rubbery chicken and buffalo shouldn't be gamey (and definitely not greasy because it is very low in fat). Also tripe can either be really delicious (a Chinese place near my house has garlic/hot pepper tripe that is so tender and clean-tasting) or horrible (menudo made with poorly cleaned and not-so-fresh cow tummies).

    Scariest-sounding commonly available food: Next time you're in the supermarket, look near the Spam and Vienna Sausages for something labeled Potted Meat Product (made by Armour, Hormel, etc.). Then read the ingredients. My favorite one is "partially defatted pork fatty tissue." Gack.

    Re: What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?

    This is a cool thread!

    I enjoy eating some of the already mentioned:
    Nopales, eel, octopus, ostritch, buffalo, potted meat products, and SCRAPPLE!! - this is the best with some light Karo surup.

    Other favorites that make my friends gag include:
    Ants (ones that live by Fossil Springs, AZ taste like lemon drops)
    Bacon and Peanut Butter sandwiches
    Raw oysters
    Mini-octopus kebabs

    The strangest I've eaten:
    Some sort of jello made from river grass in the Hakka region of China. They serve it with vinegar and rock sugar. It is strangely delicious.

    The most god-aweful thing I've eaten:
    Chodofu. A regional delicacy of Ganzhou, China made from fermented tofu. It looks like chuncks of tofu with rotten salsa poured over it. It tastes like raw suage.
