The one about gross food.

By Friday, August 3, 2012 9 , Permalink 0

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!

 

Oysters

 

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?!

    I can do ceviche most of the time, but sometimes it is just too limey for me! NO to oysters! I am with you on that one! I’ll eat them cooked 🙂

      My mom boils the shrimp…we rarely have the limey ceviche. We just prefer to make sure it is actually cooked! Oysters are still yuck, cooked or not! 😀

    I am totally with you on seafood. I don’t even like to eat food that has been in the same room with it. GROSS.

    I totally agree with you! There ARE so foods that just just remain what they are and not be transformed into edible stuff… I saw a show once where people where eating the strangest of things… like the chicken’s comb, or weird things like that… one word: ewww!!

    Can’t stand the thought of clams or oysters. Hubby likes clam chowder. I can’t stand the chewiness and sliminess.
