I’m one to try different kinds of food at least once. I am also a strong believer that if you were to be told that what you have right in front of you is, lets say, a snail, you wouldn’t even try it because you know what it is. There have been times when I am given something to try, I try it, like it to then have to spit it out because I was told I was eating alligator (true story). I mean, it was not bad, just kind of rubbery chickenish. But when I was told what I was I felt like gagging.
I have been forced to eat some things. It doesn’t really matter how many times you ask me or demand of me to eat seafood I still won’t. I don’t care if they are an aphrodisiac or the doorway to Heaven. Seafood is gross to me. Well, not all of it. I do like fish (filets, not the whole stinking thing with eyes staring into my wary soul) and shrimp. I like shrimp and ceviche!
I just can’t eat an oyster. Let alone clams or clam chowder. Calamari. Well, as long as it is deep fried and doesn’t actually look like a tiny baby squid I can handle. (Oh the memories calamari brings to mind…whole other story that has nothing to do with seafood, or food for that matter).
Oyster are gross. Clams are gross. Octopus are meant to stay in the ocean. Gross as well. Anything slimy or alive is a huge no no for me. Also, I could never bring myself to eat a lobster I had just seen alive a few minutes ago. Cruel.
What would be the food that grosses you out the most?!
