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.

    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
    • Hi Morna.  I will have to add Tom and Chee's to my list.  I have found so many new restaurants on this forum.  My family's birthday season is coming up (I swear, everyone was born between September-December), so I am going to have to check out the bakery on Campbell Station.  Sneak in some gluten-free cake and goodies and see if anyone notices.  I miss cake.
