Weirdest Food You’ve Eaten
So, I posted yesterday about trying Chicken Feet and I thought a fun topic for the show would be to find out the 'weird' foods people have tried. As always, our listeners did not disappoint.
Here are a few of the texts we got this morning during the show:
- I ate a moth once on a dare. It was ... dusty
- LOVE Rocky Mountain oysters
- My 8-year-old son Martin said broccoli
- Deer heart
- Growing up, my great-grandma and I would share the heart of the Thanksgiving turkey.
- So not super weird but when I was living down south for training I had boiled peanuts. As someone that grew up in Minnesota, it was very odd
- Japan - raw horse. Washed down the raw horse with mint-flavored beer
- I once ate a taco flavored cricket
- I ate the eyeballs from a fried trout when backpacking in the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming
- When I was younger I made BBQ and Frosted Flakes sandwich, childhood me was weird
- Deep-fried fish fins
- Ostrich meat
- We have had raw pigs cheek and tripe (cows stomach lining) while in Italy
- My Philippine husband eats Belut (Belut is a fertilized developing egg embryo that is boiled and eaten from the shell. It is commonly sold as street food in the Philippines and other parts of Southeast Asia.)
- Years ago I was at church camp and hiked up to a super religious spot as a group for the sermon. There were about 300 people and in the middle of the sermon my friend found a caterpillar. Not paying attention to the sermon we dared him to eat it. He ate it. All of a sudden his face started swelling up and his whole body broke out in a rash. He started screaming during the sermon and we had to have counselors carry him down the mountain to meet the ambulance. Lol, we all almost got kicked out. Jesus was not happy
- My uncle who should have been born in the year 1800 once caught and cooked a beaver. It tasted like mud and dirty water. 0/10 do not recommend it.
- My husband and I both lived in Argentina for a bit (at separate times). I thought it was gross that I tried cow stomach and tongue until I learned he tried blood sausage (casing filled with blood and then cooked so the blood curdles). He wanted to die, but was polite and ate it since it was a dinner invitation and he didn't want to be rude.
And I saved the best for last with pictures!
- I am American-born, and my husband is from North Africa. The last time we went back to see his family, we stopped at a local "fast food" place. I ordered a simple cheese pizza, he ordered sheep's head and fries. He ate the whole thing, eyeballs and all. I was mortified.
Ya know, chicken feet don't seem so weird anymore.
