I'll go first,hmm.. I don't like boiled duck egg with fetal duck inside. Its popular here in my country known as "balot" but I dont like the idea of eating it. I advice you people not to google it because it will haunt you for the rest of your lives. LOL

I think the worst thing was some cougar jerky someone had made.

Natto (Japanese fermented soy beans).
Sounds harmless enough, but it smells and tastes like rotten coffee to me, and it looks like obese maggots swimming in snot.
Oh, and did I mention that the 'snot' stretches like some kind of joke-shop slime?
Natto is the only thing I've come across that I physically can't force down.

Not something I'm likely to come across round here! What was so bad? I imagine it being pretty, er, catty.
Cougar jerky sounds like something from a bad joke about a certain type of older woman with a penchant for younger men

It was probably just the way he prepared it. Hard to appear gracious when the gag reflex wants to kick in.

I think one of the worst things I have eaten was food that was spoiled, but I didn't know it. Blocked it out of my memory, so I don't recall what it was now!

I've never tried haggis, and some reports say these haggis flavored chips are actually pretty good, but I still think they might be a fit for this thread.

Something that pretty much made me vomit instantly was some Budweiser / Moonshine jello a friend and I made one time.

Flavorless gelatine mixed with Budweiser beer, and some homemade moonshine, and poured into an aluminum pan to set up.

Bad enough Bud flavored jello, but the aluminum flavor also made it disgusting.

Took one bite and ran out the door and puked on their driveway.

My friend laughed at me and threw the rest away.

Ha. I googled it. Also spelled "balut" , apparently you can get them aged from barely developed all the way to feathers and beaks.

Yeah Haggis doesn't sound bad to me at all, but I like offals (liver, heart, tongue, sweatbreads, etc.). Haggis flavoured chips on the other hand sound like there was some sort of chemical flavouring involved and that grosses me more than anything else.

I guess disgust is very subjective and cultural. I think it also depends how you were raised. I have a friend who loves white industrial fluffy bread with some ultra sweet peanut butter. To me that is disgusting, but to him that is comfort food that reminds him his childhood. Blood pudding is a delicacy to me and absolutely disgusting to him.

I like to try out new foods when I hit the supermarket. I picked up some sort of pimento spread last night, was going to try it on a bagel.
I found it to be coarse and vulgar.
Is that cottage cheese in there?
I hope the chickens like it.
 
What's that smell? Hey, sniff this tiny ad:
