For me, and anyone that knows me is quite aware of the fact that I will eat and enjoy pretty much anything...

It's a tossup (no pun intended, rofl) between Sea Urchin and Limburger Cheese.


BLECH.

One of my mother's secrets was liver and onions. Oh My Stars! I usually have to resort to finding the greasiest spoon/truck-stop type/midnight interstate cafe to get the liver and onions like Mom used to make. (And I way overtip when I find it)

To this day, when I have spinach, or turnip greens, or chard.. I've got to have my vinegar. (And yeah.. that means I like canned spinach.. )

After the first few cans, which was like New England Clam Chowder with several different kinds of fish in it, it wasn't bad. Half-way thru the second case.. it was just nasty.

I wasn't too keen on broccoli as a kid. And then after one late night of night skiing on some blustery, bone-chilled, snow-covered, frost-bitten, toe-frozen, mountain on the edge of nowhere in the Colorado Rockies.. The only hot food available in the ramshakle goldminer's lodge was Cream of Broccoli soup.

Oh My Stars. Broccoli lover ever since.

My worst foods are probably pretty tame since i was raised a vegetarian. We went to an asian grocery store and ran across some fake tuna to make like tuna salad with it. The fake tuna was vegetarian so my mom picked up a tube of it. (one should know most tube form food is gross anyways) Well we opened it up and tried to make the tuna salad out of it but the smell was so god awful that i couldn't even put it in my mouth. I think it smelled like the real stuff so it psyched me out. (having never had meat, the mere idea of eating it sickens me) I tried a bite of it and it was just gross beyond gross.

The other nasty thing i had was at a completely vegetarian Chinese restaurant. All the "meat" dishes were made from various fake meat components. My parents ordered a shrimp dish. I wasn't thrilled with the fact that it looked like shrimp. I popped the sucker in my mouth and it was so nasty. It tasted like fish smells and the texture was what cornstarch boogers are like. (you know when you get a glob of cornstarch in a dish that hasn't mixed in well)

Some of my always hated foods are melons (except water), brussel sprouts, canned mushrooms and pretty much any kind of squash except yellow and zucchini

Fuzzy, my father taught me that you put vinegar on greens to "kill the taste."

However, I went to elementary school with a kid who would dig his dirty fingers into the bottle and get the peppers out. Kinda put me off pickled peppers (or pepper sauce).

There are very few foods I don't like but the worst thing I've eaten, that's even worse than liver, is wheat grass juice. What the hell ever possessed someone to make juice out of GRASS??? It tastes like when I was a little kid and would fall head first into the lawn and get a mouth full of grass clippings. Ugh. Who wants to relive that??? It tastes so bad, I can barely keep it down without throwing it back up. Burtimus loves it but it is the most disgusting thing I ever hope to taste.

OK, I read thru most of these posts which are about supposedly disgusting things and I was just fine, but when I got to your part about "cornstarch boogers" I did sorta gag.

When my sisters now deceased mom in law made a ' stew ' after my sister had her first kid, I was heating it up for dinner and I knew it was going to be bad. The woman was Welsh, and her idea of spicy food was..ketchup. The stew was beef ( tough ), potatoes, a few shards of onion...and..oh yeah...strange little balls that were slippery on the outside and poofs of dry flour on the inside. Vonnie, you were a nice woman..but oh my god, your cooking!!

I was also told by the same Swede that you cannot bring a can of it on a plane because it is considered a 'hazard' if it explodes from the gas buildup inside the can.


I think he just might have been shitting me, though.

When I went to fat camp when I was a young teen they served tuna croquettes which were SO dry and disgusting. Inedible, even for the hungry desperate campers.

There's an old rumor that when they'd prepare it in the old days they'd set it outside their doors overnight. Dogs would come by and pee on it and no one would know the difference!

Lutefisk is by far, the most disgusting, raunchy, nasty ... foulness I've ever seen/smelled/tasted in all my life.

(Forgive me, as some of this I've posted here before...)

1. When I was about 4 I climbed up onto the kitchen counter and found what I thought was an entire chocolate bar. Then I bit into it and found out there was such a thing as unsweetened baking chocolate. The Aztecs reportedly consumed their chocolate without sugar, and now I know why they threw themselves off the tops of pyramids.

2. Around the same magical time of childhood, I climbed up on the counter and found what I thought was a huge can of frosting. Then I took a giant gob in my fingers and found out what Crisco was.

3. My step-mother, an excellent cook otherwise, would make blowfish in a casserole type thing every once in a while. Her biological children loved it, but my father and I saw the truth, like Roddy Piper with his magic glasses. But on our tongues. It also smelled like, well, a blowfish casserole. I tried it once because I was seven and my step mother was a hardass with a thick German accent, but that was the end of it.

4. My biological mother, also an excellent cook, had a thing for liver and onions and every once in a while insisted on making it for me, perhaps wondering if my palette had matured since the last time I'd thrown it up all over the table. I was the kid who ate everything, but that was where I found my limit. I still hate liver and onions, though I love foie gras and Jewish deli style chopped liver.

5. As an exchange student in high school, the first meal I was served in the Birmingham, England suburb where I was doing my exchanging was kidney pie. My hosts didn't really tell me what it was. But then I ate some and they thought my reaction was such a hoot that they then told me what it was, in hopes of eliciting a stronger, even more hilarious reaction, and were entirely successful.

6. Stoned, I ate a high school cafeteria sloppy joe. There isn't enough THC in Tommy Chong's pubes to make one of those things edible.

7. In my first apartment I stupidly kept a box of Raisin Bran in my kitchen cabinet, rather than the fridge. It was early in the morning and dark and I poured a bowl for myself, adding milk. I took a bite before I realized there were mouse turds floating in the milk.

8. In my trips to Mexico I've eaten all sorts of strange things in the name of North American brotherhood. I've eaten insects (fried crickets), larvae (ant egg pods), and a pig's uterus. Insects and their larvae taste like dirt, literally. A pig's uterus tastes like what you'd imagine. Another less exotic delicacy are nopales, little fried chunks of cactus. They're slimy and horrible.

9. I ate an oyster in South Brooklyn that I knew was bad, instantly. It tasted like sewage smells. I still eat oysters but now I smell them first.

10. I had a pizza in Bozeman, Montana that was unspeakable.

YES!

Anything that's still an animal is on my ralph list. Full head of fish, crab and lobster bodies, animal parts of all kinds. Any time meat is in a grouping larger than a hamburger or a hotdog.

Pigroast? *faints*

This brought back old memories of junior high school. If there was leftover corn bread, it was saved to reappear on Friday, doused with ketchup and languishing under a slab of Velveeta. Ta daaa! Pizza! Urk.

Insects and their larvae taste like dirt, literally. A pig's uterus tastes like what you'd imagine. Another less exotic delicacy are nopales, little fried chunks of cactus. They're slimy and horrible.[....snip]
This post should have come with a warning. EWWWWWWWWWWW!!!

Corn bread! This has been done to death in other Foodee Board threads, but I'm horrified by what passes in other parts of the world as God's Perfect Food. The Bozeman version had a thick, bready crust, the taste and consistency of a Southern-style biscuit, the cheese was Jack-style and gloopy and thick, and the sauce, while not ketchup, was sweet and had the texture of pus. And it was covered with avocado and other odd things. Granted, I could have avoided the strange toppings, but I was with some locals who insisted "that's how they do it." This was 6 years ago and I'm still, obviously, scarred by the experience.

In defense of Bozeman's food, I ate some incredible steaks there and drank some locally-brewed beer that was great. Breakfasts were also stellar.
