Grossest Food To Eat?
0

44 posts in this topic

Yesterday was the big Missouri vs Univ of Kansas football game. Hub got some Mission brand tortilla chips that were Black & gold (the normal color) for Missouri. Black chips! They had KU ones that were red & bright blue! The black chips creeped me out. And of course you know what all that black food colorig does to your poop the next day! :wacko:

This got me to thinking - what is the grossest looking food you ever ate, gluten-free or not? Did it taste good? The chips tasted very good.

I was a culinary daredevil in the old days. I would make/eat anything.

Two things come to mind....

Squid in ink made by a persistent Italian chef who insisted I would love it. Yes, it was very good. :)

Head cheese at a German Oktoberfest. (I was young and did not realize what the name MEANT--DUH!) Yes, it was good. :) Now that I know what it IS, I would not eat it on a dare. :blink::lol:

Well, the first ones which come to mind are tripe, and squid (or maybe it was octopus). The tripe looked like that mini bubble wrap, with all the bubbles deflated. Didn't taste mush better than that either. Just like trying to eat a rubber pad. The squid was gross for texture more than taste. It was like eating fat worms covered in tiny suction cups.

I ate dog once. It didn't LOOK gross, but the very idea of eating a puppydog is gross. But I was in Mexico at the time, I was hungry, and that's all there was to eat. It didn't taste bad but it had a very springy texture - kind of like eating a sponge.

Ok. These are making the artificially overdone, black chips and the resultant colored poop look normal. :ph34r:

We have a Wild Foods festival every year on the West Coast - the things they eat there would really creep you out - like huhu grubs, and wetas and oh, I can't even think about it :unsure::blink: Things that even if I were starving and lost in the rain forest I probably wouldn't eat :rolleyes:

Fried lungs.

Fried flour was pretty nasty too.

One of the worst things I ever ate is actually considered a delicacy in our country.

Terry Pratchett has something to say about delicacies:

"Any seasoned traveler soon learns to avoid anything wished on them as a 'regional speciality,' because all the term means is that the dish is so unpleasant the people living everywhere else will bite off their own legs rather than eat it. But hosts still press it upon distant guests anyway: 'Go on, have the dog's head stuffed with macerated cabbage and pork noses

Years ago I was with friends in Jakarta, Indonesia. One of them ordered goat soup. It came out to the table and a moment later an eyeball rose to the top of the soup.

Very creepy :unsure:

And then we were all in hysterical belly laugh mode for the next hour :lol:

No way I would have eaten that! But apparently the soup itself was okay. I'll have to ask my friend if he ate the eyeball because I can't remember :o

I lived in China for eight months, so I ate a lot of weird stuff...

Dog, donkey, sea urchin, deer blood pudding - LOTS of parts of animals that I wouldn't normally eat like pig ears & chicken stomachs. The things I WOULDN'T try were insects, duck tongue, and shrimp heads.

I also ate reindeer & whale in Sweden and Norway, both of which weren't bad, but neither of which I would go out of my way to try again.

The eyeball in the soup reminded me of something else. There is a GREAT Chinese restaurant/buffet in Cheyenne Wyoming that has ducks feet soup. And yes, there are whole ducks feet, toenails and all, floating in the soup.

Um, I didn't try it.

I know what you mean. One time when I came home from eating Chinese, my cat was looking at me funny. I never ate there again! :lol:

I didn't actually eat this but I was served it. My MIL served turkey that was pink and cold when it was cut! I was preggers and so were my SILs. We just said we were queasy and ate the salad or baked potato or rolls. Not sure how the men lived thru it. I think a lot of pushing it around on the plate, maybe microwaving to " warm it up".

Isn't it so nice to have a chuckle about food. Usually all we do is have a whinge :D :D

Part of our "normalising" process I suppose and I hate it when my sense of humour goes down the toilet.

...down the toilet...nicely put :lol: :lol: :lol:

looks like yours is pretty intact. ;)

I agree! (as an aside:So much of what happened to me the last few years was not funny at all. It was devastating, :ph34r: but somehow, I managed to keep my sense of humor. I stopped watching the news for awhile in 2009 and 2010 and ONLY watched sitcoms. I was so ill, in pain and distraught and I thought, I'll bombard myself with humor!!! Poor hubs watched more reruns of sitcoms than he ever wanted to. But, I think that is partly what saved me. :) That, and an inner desire for NORMALCY. I said over and over "I just want to be normal again".)

Whatever "normal" is, right?? :lol: :lol: :lol:

eyeball soup, anyone?? :blink::huh:

If you ever go to China, it's not uncommon to have a whole duck or chicken complete with heads, feet, etc. plopped on the table in front if you. I was told that restaurants do that so they can prove you're really getting what you ordered. Yum!

In grad school, my Malaysian roommate would make a special lady's soup once a month that would drive everyone out of the house. I think it had dong quai in it, but I don't remember. It was the most disgusting thing I have ever smelled. She urged me to drink it, too, but I couldn't get past the smell. Though, her lotus soup, red bean drink, and foul-smelling fermented garlicky condiment rocked!

LOL Haggis is indeed pretty gross, but it can be made semi-palatable with plenty of Scotch. Not so bad the next day as haggis burgers (with plenty of Scotch), too.

    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy.
