Default What's the WORST food you've had?

We've got all these posts about great food, so here's one looking for something a little different: what's the worst thing you've eaten? Because as we all know, you can't have the good without taking the bad as well...

For myself, it would have to be a mystery tentacle I got from a bento box. Me and a friend were playing the game "Hand Count Mystery Food From The Box And Tell Him What It Is After He Eats It", and it was going just smashing. Then I got this disgusting, cold tentacle (I think it was from one of those little squid) and, being an adventurous gourmet, figured "This can't possibly taste worse than it looks. Might even taste good."

Oh, what a fool was I! I ate it, but it was like sucking down a giant slimy worm. I never, ever want to do that again.

And I apologize in advance for any mental pictures the whole worm thing might bring up.

PS: If there is already a thread about this, I'm sorry. Just thought it'd get some good responses.

Any and everything they serve you to eat while in the hospital. I never want to see any creamy soups again, jello or pudding. I won't even mention the soggy green beans.

Beets. blech. I will never eat them, in any fashion again. I went on a fad 3-day diet and beets were on the menu. Needless to say, the diet lasted but one day.

Liver and onions..No Contest. It was my Dad's fave meal, so once way back when I was young my Mom made it for him for a bday dinner. I cried, and I remember my Mom gagging alot. The whole house had a horrible stench for days.

My mom is an excellent cook, good basic meat and potatoes kind of food. We always trusted whatever she put on the table, and that was our downfall. She found this fish on sale and decided to try it. I don't know exactly what kind of fish it was, but it was called "butterfish". OH MY GOD, it was the most horrible thing I have ever tasted in my LIFE!! and I have eaten some strange stuff. I can't even describe the nastiness of the butterfish, it was just horrible. Disgusting.

I have very few things on my HATE list...but LIVER is right there at the top. I have tried it several times...because you always get that person who begs you to try theirs because I probably had it cooked badly before. Well....NEVER AGAIN will I be suckered into that nasty tasting stuff.

MELONS - all types, but cantaloupe and honeydew specifically.

A butterburger from Culver's restaurant. I took two bites and threw it out. I never through food out.

I too, really, really hate liver. I also hate horse radish or is it all one word-horseradish...and hot chili. And wasabi.

Actually something I made myself last night, was so foul, I had to throw it out! I can only eat "diet food" nowdays, and for some reason I thought my fat-free, sugar-free plain white yoghurt would go well on....corn! So I had a big bown of plain yellow salt-free corn in a bowl and poured quite a bit of my yoghurt on the corn. It was horrible! I ate as much of it as I could, and it was making me feel a tiny bit nauseated, it was so awful, I was really surprised by how bad it was. Threw what I couldn't eat down the sink.

I also don't like the taste of duck meat. I know some people really love it though, including my ex-husband...I seem to recall him saying he liked duck.

I had lamb once and I don't think I cared for the taste of it, either.

This is sure to be a controversial post, but, I really dislike the green bean casserole soup mush with onion thingies on top. The smell, sight, texture and viscosity of it just squicks me right out.

Ughhh! I totally agree with you, Esme. My mom and I get shivers when we think about this. Whenever we have potlucks at work I beg people not to bring that dish. The mere thought of GBC grosses me out as well.

When I was a Senior in High School (1970), my father was out of work for a few weeks after an encounter with the lawnmower - the blade pulverized his big toe, and he had to recover for about six weeks. CBS had just started running "The Galloping Gourmet", and Dad would write down the recipes of the things he thought looked interesting.

Some of them were quite good - one was almost inedible.

The recipe required you to hang steaks on hooks in the fridge to "season" them for several days before cooking them. We did that, and they tasted RANCID. It was the last graham Kerr recipe that Dad ever wrote down.

Dad talked about how bad that meal was for years afterwards. And we used to joke about knowing why the Galloping Gourmet was galloping - he was heading for the bathroom....

My Aunt Marguerite was the worst cook I have ever known. She cooked everything -- meat, vegetables, desserts -- for hours, until they were reduced to tasteless, gray sludge. She even made (I am not kidding) gray coffee and gray pumpkin pie. And she was so nice, so sweet, so earnest that you couldn't refuse her -- you smiled (more of a rictus, really) and choked it down.
But the absolutely worst thing she ever made was chicken and noodles. This was a soft, gray, roughly oval mass that closely resembled a raw human brain. And, for some reason, she was convinced that I, as a small child, had liked it (I had not) and invited me over to sample the mess every time she made it! I did not become a vegetarian solely to escape my aunt's chicken and noodles, but I considered it an ancillary benefit.

Mamey!! It's a melon-like fruit popular with Cuban, Mexican and Caribbean cuisine. It's eaten like melon or mixed into a milkshake. It tastes and smells like rotting flesh

Oh, I quite agree about this, no controversy with me. I can't stand this stuff, I hate green beans in any form, any way at all. Last Christmas, my sister-in-law made the casserole stuff, and my mom kept trying to make me take some. I politely declined and passed the bowl, but mom kept saying "Try it, you might like the way Michelle makes it". I tried not to make a scene refusing the stuff, but finally I had to turn to mom and say "Look Mom, I am 43 years old. I KNOW what I don't like, and I DO NOT LIKE BEANS!!, SO DROP IT". I felt terrible for cracking, but I really DO NOT LIKE BEANS

So funny coming from a Canadian.

For me, it's liver and other organ meats, beets, lima beans, butter beans, kidney beans, brussel sprouts, walnuts, pecans, tea with flavorings or sugar, and sweet pickles. Texture plays a big part in the liver and bean thing.

As for processed or fast foods, there is this Thai food on the grocery shelves that have these noodles that are vacuum packed. Those noodles really, really gross me out and I can't eat them.

Not controversial at all - I've heard that stuff referred to as "elephant puke".

I remember reading a while back that the recipe for that dish was developed by someone in the Campbell's Soup test kitchens - they were looking for new ways to use soup and came up with that.....

Green bean casserole turns 50 this Thanksgiving





MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. (AP) It only seems as if it's been part of Thanksgiving dinner forever.

Green bean casserole, the super-simple dish that is now as much a Thanksgiving fixture as football and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade for many families, turns 50 this year.

The casserole made with green beans and cream of mushroom soup topped with crunchy fried onions is the most popular recipe ever to come out of the corporate kitchen at Camden-based Campbell Soup Co.

Dorcas Reilly, a Campbell Soup kitchen supervisor in 1955, was the driving force behind the dish, company officials say. But Reilly, 79, doesn't remember having a hand in it, saying the dish was among hundreds created (after all, she helped create a tomato soup meatloaf, a tuna noodle casserole and Sloppy Joe-like "souperburgers").

For Campbell, the introduction of green bean casserole was more memorable. The company estimates it sells $20 million worth of cream of mushroom soup each year just to people following Reilly's recipe, or versions of it.

The recipe, created for an Associated Press feature in 1955, is still a fixture on soup cans labels and, this time of year, Campbell television commercials.
