Here's a new thread challenge: Weird Things I Love To Eat!
And since I suggested it, I guess I have to start....
It was an honor to be presented with this delicacy by the director of the
organization I was visiting. We each had five. They were kind of like burnt
Freetos. I ate as many as my host, and felt no unpleasant side effects from
expected neurotoxins. According to the waiter, the deep frying destroys the
Now, that's unusual. I can't say that I loved them, but they weren't bad.I
would probably do it again under the right circumstances.
When I was a teenager, I use to like to eat dog biscuits. I grew strong
healty teeth and never had a problem with fleas. :)
When I was in the military, I used to like to eat S.O.S. on pancakes.
The only thing I can think of that I do now that may be concidered weird
is that when I eat a muffin, or cupcake, I like to pop the paper
wrapper in my mouth and chew it until all the flavor is gone. I usually
look around to see if anyone is watching before I do it too.
Orange Sherbert and Club Soda float. The club soda puts an icy crust on
the outside of the sherbert, and cuts the sweetness. When you get a
mouthfull, you get some soda, some icy covering and some soft orangy
Potted Meat Product dug out of the can with saltine crackers, but only
while fishing... :-) And Tabasco sardines, with the same caveat
One more I'll mention. Ya know those packages of cheese crackers? I take
a bite of the cheese cracker and the before chewing, I add a swig of
Sprite. Then chew vigorously, allowing the Sprite to foam amongst the

Wife as a kid... Ketchup sandwiches, mustard sandwiches
12yr old son... cottage cheese mixed with Ranch Dressing mix, and Ranch
dressing on just about everything else (except salad)
Wife now... cold pizza dipped in salsa, drinking peproncini pepper juice
from the jar
Both of us now.... Pink Slime: Salsa mixed with sour cream... great to
dip chips into... and addictive
Great thread btw... my wife and I laughed out loud so often... relating
in some cases...
Baskin-Robbins should make a Pepto Bismol flavored Ice Cream.

of them seemed to come from Texas."

When I was a kid, we told our elderly (non-Jewish) babysitter we wanted
some matzo ball soup. We had those handy-dandy pre-made Mother's Matzo
Balls in a jar that we would add to chicken broth for a "Jewish quicky."
When she put the bowels down and we slurped our first slurp -- it tasted
HORRIBLE!! Turned out she used gefilte fish instead of the matzo balls --
both coming in Mother's brand jars sitting side-by-side in our fridge. We
cried that this wasn't what it was suppose to be...but our protests were
to no avail. She forced us to eat every bite because "that's what we said
So I guess another weird thing I've eaten -- unintentionally -- is gefilte
fish-chicken soup!! (And I won't again, if I can help it!!).
And what wine do you recommend with scorpions??
I had the village elders present me with a nice puppy stew once..
A little greasy but not a bad experience. You just can't get
decent puppy here in Houston though.
I'll eat most anything with ginger on it.
Pete Romfh, who now lives a boring "normal" life.
Lance, go sit in the corner. If you poured this over Blue Bell Homemade
Vanilla, I don't even want to hear about it (I think you could be
arrested for that). I'm not easily squicked, but reading this made me
want to hurl.
Some of you people are sick, sick, sick. I am beginning to wonder if I
am getting my foodie advice from the wrong place...
I heard Perrys had great puppy
And I thought that the hot dogs were the best.....
Now, now Becca. As a matter of fact I do pour Pepto over Blue Bell
Homemade Vanilla. Not only does it taste good, it looks good too! I
know in the back of your mind you are considering trying this aren't
you? The next time you put those ten scoops of Blue Bell in a giant
bowl, you're gonna think about wonderin' over to the cabinet and getting
that bottle of Pepto with the pink crust around the lid.
Go ahead ... try it, you know you want to.
As an alternative to Pepto, try a can of beer over ice cream. Moosehead
+ Chocolate = Chocolate Moose!
I won't tell you the other things I've put Pepto Bismol on.
Sliced avacado on fresh sourdough bread with a
bit of mayonnaise... what a great sandwich!

Oops... you stuck a comma in there by mistake, Lance... <G>
I was telling a colleague about this thread and he mentioned this ice cream
and beer thing.
I forgot whether it was his grandmother or his friend's grandmother, but
every night she had a bowl of vanilla ice cream topped with a Guiness
She's 91 years old!
I suppose you could use Alka Seltzer for relief after that.
hehehe i do that too. but don't tell anyone =) re the dog biscuit, i
ate one once on a dare, wasn't too bad, just not my choice of food. =)
re weird things i like to eat
ramen before it's been cooked
peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and honeycombs
skittles soaked in 7up
ranch dressing from a spoon (gotta stop that so i can fit in wedding
brown sugar from the box
who'll eat almost anything once, except for octopus at wokbo
When we drink...we get drunk.
When we get drunk...we go to sleep.
When we go to sleep...we commit no sin.
When we commit no sin...we go to Heaven.
So, let's all get drunk and go to Heaven.
when we were little my sister and i used to put cheese on bread, cover
it with ketchup and stick it in the microwave until the cheese poofed
up. makes me cringe to think about it.
also pink slime is supposedly good with cream cheese and salsa. my
sister would eat the entire thing if they'd let her. i dunno i have
never tried it because my mimi makes me sour cream and onion dip cuz
i'm the baby. =)
Dixie Brewing in New Orleans makes a chocolate flavored beer called "White
Chocolate Moose". It comes in small (6-7 oz.) bottles but that's all you
really want at a sitting. Goes great with coffee and dessert.

Godiva Chocolate Liquer. Perfect on ice cream or just by itself.
And lets not even discuss what Ralph & Kacoos does with it and
cheesecaks, lest I hunger and despise Houston for running that

Oooooh . . . sugar & butter on white bread!! Childhood flashbacks for
My Mom told my sister and me that they were called "Lady Fingers". (I
guess that was because she used to slice up the buttered & sugared bread
into four or five "dainty" slices!)
I don't find myself craving "Lady Fingers" nowadays, but I still just
have to have a Fluffernutter sandwich every now and then, though! (For
those of you who haven't had this delicacy, it consists of peanut butter
and marshmallow creme -- on white bread, of course!!!)
Think I'll go make one right now...!
Well, this marks my age... I did these "pizzas", but not in a microwave.
There wasn't such a beast! I did mine in a toaster oven. Little squares
of chedder cheese on bread, dots of catsup, then in the toaster until the
toast toasts and the cheese melts. One of my regular after school snacks.
This has to be better than the microwave version, since the bread becomes
Oh, my other after school snack was a honeymoon salad with bleu cheese dressing.
Honeymoon salad? Lettuce alone!

One day, when I was a kid, my sister and I asked the babysitter (a nice
little old Gentile lady) to make us Matzo Ball soup. We used the
ready-made Mother's mazo balls in the jar and put them into the simmering
When she served the soup, it tasted TERRIBLE. I noticed the jar she had
on the kitchen counter which happened to be Mother's Gefilte Fish.
Yep....she grabbed the wrong jar (hey, she was a goy...matzo balls and
gefilte fish can look equally strange to the untrained eye!!). We told her
-- then PLEADED with her -- that she had made Gefilte Fish soup rather
than matzo ball soup...but she made us eat every single bite since we
Sorry if you've heard it before...but it sure is good for a repost!!! ;-)

Vienna sausages (pronounced VIE-eenah) on saltines.

Grilled Peanut Butter sandwiches -- though I haven't had one in 10
French Fries (the non McDonald's type) with mayo

And yes Naughyde, really good cream gravy can be considered a side dish
and eaten with a spoon!!
