I tried a piece of alligator. It was like eating rubber. I spit it out.
I am not a food exploring kind of person.

Chalk? Your friend might have pica

Maybe not the strangest, but definitely the most disturbing thing I’ve eaten is live shrimp. Something about watching a body less head crawl across the plate. Everyone else at the table laughed at me. I couldn’t eat shrimp again for over a year.

@Dutchess_III I’ve had alligator. Tastes like chicken!

Crow. It doesn’t taste very good, but it’s good for you every once in awhile.

Safie's avatar

I couldn’t bring myself to eat crow, you’re brave.

Raw sea cucumber. On the sushi picture menu it was labeled “Challenging”.

Like a wad of snot wrapped in seaweed.

I used to frequently eat Elmer’s glue and ants as a kid. Separately, that is.

Rocky Mountain Oysters. They were delicious if you didn’t think about what you were eating.

I spent 16 days touring China. I ate rat, monkey, and water fungus.

Safie's avatar

@Apparently_Im_The_Grumpy_One I knew someone who actually liked cat food and dog food, but then humans do test pet food :)

Safie's avatar

@filmfann Jeepers! rat, monkey, and water fungus? that’s just showing off lol… No but seriously kudos to you indeed! for even trying those especially the Rat!

Spider, crickets, and one of these.

The last one was mostly juice and tasted like old grass clipping took a shit in my mouth.

Barnacles served as a seafood course at a dinner in Italy. I liked them.

Termites. (They taste of spearmint.)

Coloma's avatar

@Safie No, Elk are like giant deer, not Moose. The yellow sausage was highly suspect. haha

@syz Sooo, was this some sort of Jane Goodall moment, sharing twigs with the chimps at the termite mound?

Grandad’s spotted dick, strange only because grandma scolded me for speakiing with my mouth full.

An Argentine ant.

They’re so small that I thought it would have no taste nor texture. I was right.

Where’s @ibstubro? My first answer was inspired by his recent question. The weirdest thing I’ve ever eaten (and it tasted really good, by the way) was Huitlacoche otherwise known as corn smut.

Being a vegetarian, I’ve eaten a lot of stuff that seems normal to me and my other veggie friends, but to some folks accustomed to eating meat and potatoes, my food choices have actually scared/disgusted/horrified some people.

Some of those things include: Tempeh, and Seitan, and Pickled Daikon Radish, and Kimchi, and Maitake Mushrooms, and Gjetost Cheese, and Potato Tacos, and Dotorimuk, and an Eithiopian Wat Platter, and Raw Humanese Soup, and King Oyster Mushrooms, and Enoki Mushrooms, and Bitter Melon and that’s just for starters.

I’m about to fix myself a fake chorizo taco for dinner.

It wasn’t good.
It wasn’t bad.
It was dirt.

Sorry, @kardamom, I answered before seeing your input.
