What strange foods have you eaten?

Asked by squirbel (4277points) March 4th, 2008

Strange includes anything that might make the typical steak-and-potatoes-American make a face.

Goat meat is pretty normal for my family.

Limpets They are a small sea snail that is eaten live (they crawl off your plate, slowly, as you eat them)

Squid is delicious.
Iguana was gross.
Durian fruit is…... interesting.
My favorite sandwich is hummus, honey, sprouts, swiss cheese, and penut butter/almond butter on pita. Yum!

Its common, btu some people make faces at Tofu. I’d die without it, i’m sure. Yumyumyum.

Rat soup in Laos but I couldn’t bring myself to eat the tail, very bitter. Also had boiled marmot there, much better than rat. I ate a half a medium sized cockroach by accident – it was in my drink. The drink had ice, I thought it was a chunk of ice, you figure it out.

gooch's avatar

Oh yes I also had nutra rat and lion

My freshman college roommate was Malaysian and had durian shipped to our room. He also never showered or washed his sheets.

I didn’t get many visitors.
