    Chocolate coverd ants-and No I didn't know it at the time either.I was told it was chocolate covered rice krispies......
    This was at an old Islays--many moons ago.

  4. I did an entry!

    ~~~Make it a Great Day~~~

  5. LOL, Krissy; good question!!

    I'm like you, cow tongue and escargot one time

    have a good day!


  6. Snails.  Didn't care for them at all.


  7. same answer perhaps or maybe escargot, octopus??  Love, Val xox

  8. Being of Portugese decent, my grandmother made a dish called "tripe",which is the lining of a cows belly. Of course she didn't tell me when I was small what it was but no matter as I spit it out anyway! yuk! Yuk! Yuk! lol never forgot the horrid experience to this day. lol

  9. Horse meat when I was in France...yuk!  I didn`t know until afterwards though.....:o(

    Love Sandra xxxx

  10. My mother's spaghetti sauce, which was basically home-canned tomato juice thickened with flour: think pink, thin flour paste. When I discovered Ragu, I thought I was in heaven.

  13. considering we go to Mexico often, I've learned to just eat it and not ask what it, I'd probably survive on coke for a week...


  14. I expect quite a few of us Brits will say this but for me it has to be the scottish dish Haggis!!  I remember they passed it round at Primary School and I think I liked it lol

    I don't eat weird food .. however i remember HAVING to try octopus once. EWWW No thank you!  

  16. Krissy, I am very fussy about what food I eat.  I have been called a "picky eater" all my life.  I thought and thught about this and I think the only weird food I ever ate was clams.  EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW, ICCCCCCCCCCCCCCkkk! That's it! Merry

  17. I put the same answer on Betty's page so here goes, but warning: This Is not for the faint hearted! lol I used to eat tripe=sheeps stomach lining and potted meat=No, sorry no can do, but here Is the link:                                                        I used to eat mine from the butcher's fresh and not from a can, I remember loving It with tomato sauce! Ohhhh. I am shuddering! Love Pam xx

  18. Chinese I don't know half the time what I eat there.

    As always a day late and more than a dollar short.  When I was 18, my boss invited 2 of us waitresses to be "guests" at a Japanese tea party/meal.  Never thought we were there for "decoration".  The men were wonderful, laughed a lot, got us drunk "bot-tom UP", but never made passes at either of us.  We ate fish, seaweed, raw varieties of fish - a red one called Sashimi that was a tpe of tuna.  The flavorings for dipping were odd, but I was willing to try it all.  They were so enthralled by my willingness that near the end of the meal, they gave me the great honor of receiving the highest delicacy of all:  the head of the most precious fish!! I couldn't, just could not . . . that fish was staring at me!   I am older and much wiser now . . . although I have eaten many odd delicacies in my life.  Blessings, Penny

    Probably the weirdest I've had was rattlesnake--which was actually very good; I'd eat it again if it was prepared the same way, lol!  I've also tried squid, which wasn't bad-tasting (bland, really), but I didn't like the texture.  It was too chewy... almost rubbery. :-P
    Other foods that people might consider "weird" that I have enjoyed are: frog's legs, rabbit and squirrel (I really don't think these are weird, but some of my friends have expressed different opinions on the matter, lol).
    I love to play with unusual ingredients (lavender blossoms, lemon grass) or use common ingredients in surprising ways (nutmeg in a sauce for meatballs, black pepper in a dessert), so I wouldn't be averse to trying other "odd" things.  I'm leery of trying anything insect-related, however--even though I've heard that cicadas are pretty tasty... lol!

    Whole octopus/squid on my last night in Italy...It could hardly touch it.  Unfortunately, I had no control over my entree that night because we were on tour.


I would love to hear from you. Now is your chance! So what do you want to say?
