When we were all little kids( and we all were once!) we were fed, or even on our own- ate some very strange things... Did an older kid ever talk you into eating a worm, or some nasty other bug? Did your parents think you were really interested in trying some weird-ass food they ate while growing up in some foreign country? I think you are all on the same page now, waiting for the two question challenge!
1. What was the strangest thing you ever ate, animal or vegetable- your earliest memory?
2. What is the strangest thing you eat today- and enjoy?
I usually go first, as it gives others courage to answer!
1. Dutch DubbleZout.. Roughly translated, double salted licorice from the Netherlands- brand name Faam Dropkes. They had the rubbery consistency of an automotive grommet, with a salty, licoricey flavor that, when you were exposed to it first time- you spit it out! Large Dutch community around here, and is also my heritage.... Today I actually love them, but it is an aquired taste!
2. I would have to say Escargots..snails..slugs to be brutal! Who was the first starving person to get so hungry as to try one of these? Then they found out, with garlic butter, cooked properly- is a treat?!?!
There are many more, but I want to hear your personal answers to this! Try it- It's quick and fun!
