I`d be one who is turned off normal food from a bad thought,but i`m sure that unwittingly like most people i have eaten things we would never
normally.I`d have to say raw oysters would have to be about as adventurous as i`ve been,and even that nearly made me loose my breakfast.
My ex`s family could`nt keep her brother when young out of the chook pen because he loved to eat chook poop, he`d go missing but was always found
hiding in the pen having a feast
After being told this,the next day i told the guys at work after smoko about this,one guy looked annoyed at me,then said "thats what i used to do as
Maybe the rest of us are missing out on something huh?though i`ll gladly give it a miss.
I have not really eaten any weird foods. I eat Toasted Bagels with Hot Sauce on it. It is good depending on what kind of hot sauce is on
it. Some sauces aren't that good but others are awesome. I don't know how weird that is but it is the weirdest thing that I have
I also know someone who ate Play-Doh when they were young.
We picked these as kids, but you had to use gloves. If you touched them before they were cooked they would hurt like hell and leave red welts on your
Mom cooked them up like spinach and served them with butter.
not me but my bro ate leftover noodles i left sittin on the table.i had been hawkin lewgys and chunks of my lung into the big bowl for about 10
minutes or so.i smoke lots so it was pretty chunky.my bro came home drunk,and was like YEAH DUDE NOOODLES MMMM.he was chowing down and forgot to look
at what he was eating.i stood at the door to walk outside and smoke and just made a funny #head face like dude,what the # are you doing?i told
him he ate some haggard # from my lewgys and he goes,WELL WHAT THE HELL DONT LEAVE FREAKIN BOWLS ON THE TABLE!
I guess northern people tend to consider crawfish wierd.
I have a history of eating various bugs. Went to some thing at our nature center when I was young and we had things with worms and crickets in them,
some other things I'm sure but that's all I remember. I swallowed an inchworm at camp a while back, but they rinsed it in koolaid first. I always
wanted to go collect some grubs and fry them up, but we never did get around to it. We got ants and did that once, bit of olive oil and stick them in
a frying pan.
Alligator, frog, pig brain, escargot(if you consider these things wierd).
I went through a dry cat food phase. I'd go and steal a handful, then hide in the corner behind the couch in our living room.

No bread in the soda for me, but I have drank and occasionally still do drink ketchup straight from the bottle (ketchup rocks!); of course, I love bbq
sauce, and sauces in general. Alot of times I get a craving for a sauce, and then figure out what to eat it with (instead of picking a meal and then
deciding on condiments).
I think the weirdest thing I have ate, besides spiders, is pig brain. It was good, better than I expected.
Woodchuck is quite good on the grill. Tastes allot like roast beef.
Others I have consumed (all from the wild and harvested by myself):
Venison - Whitetail (not too uncommon)
Woodcock (alright! watch it!) - A type of Grouse with a long needle like bill.
Rattlesnake - chickeny
Alligator Tail - always thought it tasted like a cross between chicken and shrimp.
My favorite self harvested food aside from Venison is fresh Brown Trout - luscious pink flesh! A little egg wash or milk, a little flour and in to the
frying pan with butter.
For Venison I usually trim it up really well while reducing about 4 chopped onions in a little oil and butter. Cut it into small chunks about 2"X1"
and throw into the pan with lots of fresh cracked pepper and a bit of coarse salt. Cook low and slow for up to 1-1/2 hours. Serve with some nice home
I've also had snipe but they are very hard to catch. *wink*
I've eaten a lot of the meats listed here in my carnivourous days, no insects or bugs to my knowledge, but I never considered them weird because they
were considered normal wherever I happened to eat them.
Actual weird things to my mind that I have eaten would be rock dust, it was meant to be high in minerals when used as a tea, tasted fine but I don't
know if that was true about it being any use as a food. And I still eat cheese rinds that are supposedly inedible. Well not for me. I used to eat
these supplements that were some kind of high-content minerals from some meteor site, meant to be like ORMs.
I expected this thread to be full of things like 'I eat glass' and 'mmm, crayons'.
Weirdest: giant bbq'd beetle from a street vendor in Thailand. Thank goodness for beer.
Most revolting: "Pickled" Icelandic shark which is basically a shark that they catch, eviscerate, chuck in a hole on the beach then cover with sand
and let it "Pickle" for a few months. Sadly, I can't blame beer on that one.
I also knew a guy that ate milk-bones. All the time.
I almost forgot,
I ate flan from a street vendor in Ol' Mex. Tasco?
He swore that they were raisens.
I was 13, but I damn near died (filthy commy flan)...on the upside,
I could buy Tequilla and smokes. I felt like a godlet
Jesus Christ !
I thought the stuff i had was strange !
Went to ecuador and ate a coy, its basicly a guine pig, tasted like crap.
Also had some fresh cow stomach while i was there, this also tasted like
crap...if they didnt have pizza hut i would have starved. Ya i know, im an
a typical american.
I went to Thailand last month to visit a friend and after a night of drinking she stops at this road side vendor and buys a small plastic sack filled
with little green veggies and BUGS!!! That's right...little beetle cock roach looking demons. They were even seasoned and had a little crunch to
If it looks disgusting by Sporty standards, I don't eat it. I'm very picky about my food.
Been living in Asia for a few years, so I've tasted a few..."delicacies":
Dog (Not sure what breed. Probably mongrel, which I guess would make that "mixed meats" )
Sheep's brains (This when I was a kid. My mum told me they were "crumbed chicken croquettes". I never forgave her.)
Raw fish, raw beef, raw veal
Drank "rice liquor" out of a severed snakes head mixed with the blood and gore (an aphrodisiac according to the Taiwanese. Made me feel ill, not
Pig trotters (this at an Italian restaurant I worked at part time)
Vegemite straight from the jar with a spoon (Aussies will know how much of a feat that is.)
I stay away from bugs. That sheet just aint nat'ral. I even made a smiley special for the occasion. =>
