What absolutely disgusting food do your friends and family consume? You know, the kind of stuff that just makes you puke. My list is pretty extensive.

- My 4.5 year old likes peanut butter and cream cheese sandwiches.
- My 1.5 year old likes cod liver, and he drinks up the cod liver oil from the tin once he is done.
- My husband drinks pickle juice out of the pickle jar once all the pickles are gone. He also puts anchovies and capers on EVERYTHING.
- My grandparents pickle watermelon. They also boil cows tongue, and eat it straight up. Ugh.
- My mom makes this gelatinized chicken soup called "holodets," which is probably the most foul thing I've ever seen. (http://www.humble-traveler.com/images/holodets.jpg)
- My best friend purees boiled okra and spreads it on crackers.

The people in my life are so gross when it comes to food. I feel ill just writing this list. Can you beat it?

My mom loved scrapple and oxtail soup. Growing up during the Depression did odd things to people's tastes, I suspect.

Maryn, knowing this will be topped

A Filipina friend of mine eats baluts.

A balut is a fertilized duck (or chicken) egg with a nearly-developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell. It is commonly sold as streetfood.

Yep. That's pretty gross.

Your people are. So. Wierd.



My mom ate p-butter and mustard or mayo sandwiches.

MIL- jelly and bologna sandwiches sometimes with cheese.

I like dry roasted p-nuts in my salad. My kids get grossed out.


I also like cottage cheese with green salsa on corn chips. Or Dorito's with cottage cheese.

I had a girl friend who liked p-butter and bacon sandwiches with onions.

My old stepdad liked Speghetti O's and baked beans poured over Frito's. I tried it, it was pretty good.

Ever hear of black pudding over there? It's basically whatever extra bits you can scrape from a dead pig and shove into a sausage skin. (http://recipeland.com/recipe/v/Black_Pudding_Irish_5381)

Lovely, ain't it? ;)

It's honestly a lot better than it sounds. :)

The worst thing I've ever seen eaten is when a friend was pregnant. She'd get a Big Mac and stick it in the freezer until it was cool and the sauces and fat had started to congeal--THEN she ate it happily.

Ewwww.

How did I know that was going to be maggot cheese?

And why did I click the link anyway?

Anyway, gross things my family consume would probably be natto. They assure me it's perfectly delicious and the sticky texture is simply a delight, but I will never in my life put anything that smells like that inside my mouth.

I was waiting for the part where you were going to say you ate the placenta.

Because you're a glutton for punishment. :D

I won't touch natto either. If I don't like the smell of a food, no way in hell am I going to eat it. I shun all nasty foods including all offal.

You knew more than I. Soon as I clicked the link and read the title, I closed it before the picture loaded ... thank goodness. I love cheese ... maggots, not so much.

I can't come close to topping any of these. Just the thought of some of them got the old gagging reflex going.

Okay, until I read this thread I thought my MIL's pineapple+ mayonnaise+ canned peas+ chopped onions + shredded cheddar + cherry jello salad was the most disgusting thing I'd ever seen, but maggot cheese beats anything I got.

My son so wants to try that! He and his best friend became friends when my son found out he was Filipino and the first thing he asked was 'Have you eaten balut, what does it taste like?'

Balut is supposed to be an aphrodisiac.

Chicken or Cow livers. Also Chicken gizzards. Yuck!

A Singaporean friend of mine insisted I eat bird's nest soup with her one New Year's Eve---"it's a delicacy". Yes, where "delicacy"="horror the consistency of half melted Jello tasting like the unholy union of sugar water and feet."

I'll also wager that none of you chicken fetus dilettantes has eaten lutefisk, which is really the mack daddy of gross food.

That cheese is hideous.

Millicent, I've had Black, White and I believe Red pudding (local to a Northern leetle town I can't remember). It's too rich but reminded me of the taste of Braunschweigger. Except for the thought of blood running through my head.

These are really awful. I was going to say pickled pig's feet, but that's boring now!

They serve a soup in Hungary with a chicken's face and feet in it. That's kinda odd.

Oh now come on. I love fried or boiled chicken gizzards. Nothing wrong with that. A bit of the South, you know? And pickled pig's feet. Delish. Given a chance I would try Rocky Mountain Oysters. Just a different type of meat. I have pig's heads in my freezer which I do intend at some point to cook. Have the recipe and everything. I just need a bigger pan. :D

People eat raw fish, call it "sushi", say it's a delicacy and do I complain? No. To each their own. You won't, however, catch me eating these:

6 terrifying foods (http://www.cracked.com/article_14979_6-most-terrifying-foods-in-world.html)

or

10 weird foods (http://www.ibtimes.com/contents/20090921/10-weird-food-delicacies-from-around-world.htm) [A little overlap but not much]

I also won't eat skewered, roasted rat. I refuse. End of story.

That reminds me of the time I had those in Spain, and the toros' balls that died in the ring were on special in one particular restaurant. They were delicious, a true culinary delight; except one time when they were served and appeared undersized, hardly bigger than eyeballs.

I still ate them, but when I complained about the portion, the waiter said, "Sir, the bull does not always lose the fight!"

What I used to love and eat all the time was farina with cottage cheese, butter and sugar and mixed it together. Yummy, that was a feast. Also, one time in England when we ordered pizza, they brought it with a large fish in the middle of it and its eyes looked like it was staring at us. :)

My many trips to the UK have taught me to never order pizza there. It's a challenge, as pizza is such a staple for me. But, once you've had a Brooklyn slice, nothing else will do (and in England they really do manage to screw it up pretty badly, at least that was my experience a dozen times or so).

Cathy, of Hispanic descent, likes menudo (tripe soup), birria (goat) and traditional carniceria-style chorizo (made with every part of a pig but the oink).

I stick with the gringo-safe "premium" all-meat chorizo but I've received a few strange looks when describing chili served over waffles made from Jiffy corn muffin mix.
