Hey Pandas, What Is The Most Disgusting Food You Have Ever Eaten? (Closed)
I have eaten some truly "interesting" foods. Have you ever eaten some?
P.S. If not, you are the lucky one.
I once accidentally poured expired whipped cream into my mouth, never again.
I used to love to order the snails at a restaurant. One day, I thought that I was clever enough to try and cook them myself at home. Not a good idea as it turns out - after the first absolutely revolting bite, I promptly threw everything up and never touched snails again!
Balut. Couldn't actually eat it, the site of it made me gag!!
I really don't react well to solid chunks of fat, so I instantly gagged when I tried meat jelly.
Duck or goose blood soup... gross.
I like this but everyone else that tried it said ew, I like sanwiches with apple butter, gouda cheese, and mini bell peppers
One time I was watching a MrBeast video, and they ate a granola bar with ketchup as a punishment and I thought, “hey, it can’t be that bad!” It was. Is really was.
Natto - Japanese fermented soybeans. I am not blessed with a strong sense of smell or taste ( I once ate spoiled milk for three days because I couldn't taste the difference.) But the scent was overwhelming and it has this slimy sticky texture. I ate it for extra credit in my Japanese class.
i lived the in arctic for a year. It is important, very important to remember in the arctic they don't have trees, so no wood to burn for fire. all the foods listed below are raw. RAW.
I ate alot of things that were odd. beluga muktuk (meat) not good. raw scallops, very sweet. raw caribou sandwich, really good. dried seal intestine jerky: really really good! etc.
the worst thing i ate was seal. it is red meat that is the greasiest thing ever and tastes like rotten fish. that is a big nope. and I had to leave a community feast when they rolled out the centre piece to the meal: a complete seal that had been buried in the permafrost for 6 months or so. it was green. and slimey. like legit slime strings on the knife as they were carving it up. I had to leave.
casu martzu AKA maggot chese,tuna eyes,its exactly what you think...,nakji,puffin heart never had it but they will go extict just like the dodo bird :(
Century Egg (or One Hundred Year Old Egg). They're not really that old but they have been preserved in a special concoction for several months. Anyway, the first time I bit into one, it tasted exactly what you'd expect a 100 year old egg to taste like. I'll never do that again.
"Flaki" which can be literally translated to "guts"
Soup made of thin, cleaned strips of beef tripe. The view itself is not very appetizing. It is widespread all over Poland and often appears at weddings.
A vomit flavoured jelly bean. NEVER AGAIN.
If you didn't know, my family is Norweigian, and during Christmas, we eat Norwegian food.
One year, we tried Smalahove. We're not going to tell you what it is. Search it yourself.
I nearly threw up, and I hadn't even ATE it yet. Then I tried it and proceeded to throw it up. My mom said good job for trying it though. Then, I washed it down with TONS of hot chocolate.
Husband ate deep fried tarantula in Cambodia. I vomited.
One day around Christmas my brother brought home some ginger bread dough. He played with it a lot but we never baked it. So one day I ask my mom if we're ever going to eat it. She doesn't answer but I wanted some, so I took it out and ate it. It was super salty tho and my mom turns around and asked me why I ate the playdoh..... WHY WOULD THEY MAKE PLAYDOH THAT LOOKS AND SMELLS LIKE GINGER BREAD DOUGH!!! THE WORSE PART IS THAT HE'S IN KINDERGARTEN!!! WHAT IF HE ATE THAT!!! Needless to say I've never brushed my teeth harder in my life.
My “friend” thought it would be cute to mix orange jello, crushed pretzel sticks, and ketchup in chocolate milk before giving it to me. Nastiest thing I ever tasted.
As the kind of person who actually likes bugs in my food, enjoys the sweet meats and will devour raw beef and fish, I'm going to say that the grossest thing I've ever eaten is Earthworm jerky. I nearly threw up.
This monstrosity. it's called "Kæleh Paacheh" کله پاچه (basically, sheep head soup) it's served like this & is eaten completely, brains eyeballs and all. now that I'm grown up I get nauseous even smelling it but it's an absolute delicacy beloved by many people and a part of the culture of a few countries. (going back thousands of years originating in Iran.) it's breakfast food and it's so popular here in Iran that you have to wake up around 4am and stand in line before they're all gone!! I couldn't attach a picture for the post but you can check it out the source link!😉
Vegemite - Australian spread made from leftover brewers' Yeast extract.
Aloe Jello on a flight to South Korea. It was horrible.
A Temptations cat treat. I was feeding them to the kitties, and had two identical bowls, one full of treats and the other full of peanuts. I absent-mindedly tossed one of the treats into my mouth instead of a peanut. It was crunchy but surprisingly tasteless.
It was something like a steak tartare during a student exchange in France. From the picture in the menu I thought I would get a fried burger patty. I nearly fainted when the raw meat was served but I forced it down because I wanted to be polite towards my host family. I had to gag constantly, it was really horrible!
Natto: fermented soybeans, Japanese food. The smell and taste are horrible!
i'm actually not sure there's ever been a food i've tried that i didn't like
A raw muscle at a sushi bar, it was like eating chewy phlegm.
Spam in the US (I despise the smell and taste of Spam) and raw octopus in Thailand (on a dare).
Some of yall might not agree but Sushi bleh at least the sushi at the Buffet
Okra. It's an African vegetable. Looks like a courgette somehow, but when you cook it, it releases a... slime. I was invited at dinner at some friends' who cooked it. I had to keep myself from puking. Literally. Never again.
Liver. Which is quite ironic, considering my favourite meat is lamb kidneys.
a chocolate cupcake in Cardiff. it was like biting into a piece of moist sugar, topped with more sugar. We tried splitting it with my husband and we couldn't finish it, although we are both enthousiatic eaters :). it was disgusting.
not a food but a drink, there is such a thing as thick water, to help those who have trouble swallowing, not sure how it helps tho- it was disgusting.
I'm from Mexico, so it's ok to eat crickets, snakes, iguana, and you are considered lucky if you are the one that gets the red worm in the last sip of mezcal. Still, the most disgusting food I had was Jumiles - alive insects u put in a taco - you have to gulp them before they fly away - the weirdest thing is that they taste like mint!
Beef Heart. And because I made a comment I was forced to prepare it for someone. After all the autopsy comments flying my way. My second is chicken feet.
I know people might disagree with me, but I really hate sweet potatos. I'm all for regular potatos, but I don't like sweet potatoes
Oysters on the Half shell! It's like eating a giant slimy booger!! Ugh! 😝
It is and likely will always be Jellyfish. Flavourless jelly texture that no amount of marinating flavours. Gag, yuck, ew.
One time I was in a road trip with my family, and I had a bag of fruit loops. There was a black one. Tried it. Taste didn't come out of my mouth for 2 weeks.
once my family planted 4 zucchini and 4 squash plants without asking neighbor's advice......yup. It's a running joke around here that if you leave your car unlocked in a church parking lot, then it will be full of zucchini when you get back. we thought it was only a joke. Apologies to the Johnsons.
Two days ago - Tesco's Plant Chef Garlic Kievs. Absolutely revolting. Even if I had a dog - which I don't - I wouoldn't them them to him
Any organ meat: liver smells like blood, kidneys smell like urine. Won't eat.
Turkey, tofu, soy
Spoiled milk. Forgot to sniff the milk carton before pouring it onto my Weetbix, thought whilst eating that the milk tasted unusually sweet. Turns out it had already expired a few days ago. 🤮
Red Bull sorbet.
Fois Gras!!!! Tasted like rotten pate mixed with venison!!!👎🏻👎🏻
When I lived in Zimbabwe, I was given a handful of roasted flying ants. The crunch wasn't bad, but having to pick the legs out of my teeth almost did me in.
Mopane worms: a caterpillar which is dried out & eaten as a snack in Southern Africa.
Another African favorite: walkie talkies. Head and feet of chicken.
frosted mini wheats
I tried Baba Ghanoush once. I'll never dare try it again, even though I suspect it must have been off. It tasted like manure smells. Everything it had touched on the plate also tasted like manure.
I know a lot of people love them, but super sours candies ordered by my doc. I'd rather drink Buckley's cough syrup than suck on a sour candy.
raw oysters - my body won't let me swallow. it won't
fresh bananas - I got hit in the nose with a Frisbee when I was six while chewing banana bubble gum. Now if I smell fresh bananas, I taste blood. It's weird, I know.
stinky tofu...vomit making. durian fruit...smells like unwashed socks so I could not even...
Canned cow tongue in PRESCHOOL. Teachers made us try squid, cricket, eel and caviar on toast too, but cow tongue was the WORST. They just opened the can and pulled out nice slimy pieces of cow tongue and gave is to us.
Squid was actually really good, but....cow tongue?
Calves liver. When I was a waitress at a diner, I used to bribe another server to deliver it to the table. If I had to do it myself, I'd gag the entire time. Almost got fired over it once.
I drank what I thought was a cup of leftover pineapple juice from my mother baking a cake with a can of pineapples. I got the baking bit right. The leftover liquid, alas, was egg white. 🤢
We had a bush of goji berries in the garden. Dried they taste just meh to me. The fresh stuff had an aftertaste that made me want to work on my tongue with a nail brush and gurgle grit
Live squid, chopped up into bite sized pieces. Backstory: I was in a tiny town in Japan, my then BF knew the owner and he was treating us to the best of the best. I thought it was weird being so tough and the 3rd bite I realized it was still alive... I drank A LOT that night 🤢
all you can eat baffe my sister tricked me into eating frog legs
B A N A N A S.
I'm sorry to all the people who love them, but it feels like eating a slimy eel. They make me gag, truly the worst food I've ever had.
Yak butter candy. Tried it in college. Tasted rancid and gamey.
Lima beans. The texture makes me gag.
I don't like hot dogs and not a big fan of chicken nugget(that's what their called right? the chickeny circle things?) I think they both taste like encased mashed goo... Leave me with some kimbap and rice and I'm good. Thats my opinion though, if you like these things it doesnt make you gross, I just dont like them.
After that, I had to burp for a whole day and the scent it gave off was horrible.
Seriously - don't try it!
As soon as I saw this subject, I knew what I had to post. Back in the 80s, my hubby and I spent about 6 weeks in Florida every year working with the Florida Dept. of Fish and Game, and other volunteers, to do a count of how many manatees were in Crystal River Florida each year, both from the air and on the water. Jimmy Buffett is a good friend of ours from all the years he was there, without fail, to do PSAs (Public Service Announcements) and a benefit. One of the local restaurants in Homosassa Springs put on a terrific buffet for everyone we looked forward to every year. I LOVE oriental food, especially noodles and veggies and I was thrilled at the selection. I had filled my plate with what I thought was vegetable tempura. It tasted a little "off" but figured it was the seasoning. Jimmy comes over and says "Dammit Weezie, you sure love that s***!" I had just chop-sticked some into my mouth...then I saw the sucker...it was calamari. With the breading, I couldn't tell...My face must have turned five shades of red. I almost didn't make it to the restroom. My delicious (squid notwithstanding) lunch was flushed. I have ten-years worth of amazing stories, both terrific and ridiculous (including dealing with amateur snorkelers who don't follow the rules) but this was definitely the GROSSEST thing I have ever eaten. Would have rather had a "Cheeseburger in Paradise!" :-)
DON'T mix apple and orange juice. Ever. You'll regret it.
I fell for Marmite. The stuff was offered in portion sized heart shaped plastic tins on the breakfast buffet when I visited London. Looked innocent enough, sirup-y, made me think of nutella. That was a trap. Tastes like adequate punishment for calling granny a sl**.
Andouillette is a typical French dish, consisting of the intestines of pigs (historically it was made with intestines of cattle). It looks like an ordinary white sausage and can be found on menu’s throughout France, proving to be a menace to unsuspecting tourists. It tastes like sausage filled with s**t, literally. And it’s the most horrible thing I’ve ever eaten.
One time I had a pretzel and a dog treat in my hand at the same time, guess which one I ate. 🤢🤮
Taiyaki, a cake with sweet red bean paste inside. I was in Nishiki Market and tried a bunch of things that's look gross but tasted wonderful. Then I get a cute sweet cake in the shape of a fish that looked delicious and bro. It way too sweet. And the sweet flavor was like off, it tasted like I upended a whole packet of stevia sweetener in my mouth. I couldn't finish it and gave it to my husband who has a huge sweet tooth and he loved it. I went back to the takoyaki stand.
Reindeer milk cheese. I never ate it but others bought it on a bus trip and I was already tortured by the smell. They said the brown weird thing tasted sweet.
Cows Ankles. In the Netherlands they are being destroyed. Not even used for Petfood. In Spain they serve them in soupish dish.
A crabcake in an office building in Hongkong. Imagine a fried tofu ball with cigarette ashes in it. Literally what it tasted like. Didn’t eat anything else there. Just said nope and walked out the building to macdonalds around the corner.
Well, this isn't me, but my brother mixes pirate booty, grapes, and WORMS on his applesauce!!
We love coffee and coconut water- in this case two good things do NOT make a good thing..😝💩
Escargot. I couldn’t get past the chewy texture and immediately spit it out
Sea Urchin... tastes like salty mud. Uck!
Scorpion in a lollypop... it was NASTEY
Jellyfish...in China. Also, soup with a chicken foot in it. It was delicious, until I saw the foot.
Brussel sprouts eww 🤢 🤮
when I was very young I thought a brown crayon might taste like a tootsie roll.
My high school boyfriend's dad used to make some weird sandwich grilled on a cast iron pan that he never cleaned the previous food off of, with cheess whiz and sweet relish.
One time when I was a kid I tried Kool-Aid mixed with milk. Not sure why. Then a few years ago on April Fools, my brother poured syrup in my orange juice and it all sunk to the bottom, so I didn’t realize until I had drank the entire thing.
Fresh aloevera slime
People that aren't from Germany might find it disgusting, but I really like Mett, that's raw minced pork. You spread it on a bread roll and top it with raw onion rings. Delicious!
I also like Wurstsuppe, that's what's left after the butcher boiled the sausages in a big pot, some of the sausages burst and add to the flavor.
On the other hand I find Blutwurst und Zungenwurst (Sausages made from blood or tongues) disgusting.
Cow liver. It tasted like manure.
chicken hearts and mussels
Wild goose that my dad made me eat. Greasy and nasty.
Once tried a spaghetti with a lobster in it. It was gross
I'm stuck between the eyeball of a fish and quinoa. They both made me throw up, I can not eat either anymore.
Peanut butter and Jelly.With Lots of Ketchup
Not my fault I didn't know
Got chik-fil-a once. Ewwww, no thanks on the bland styrofoam sandwich please...I'll be going to Popeye's for some flavor. Go ahead and downvote me, you ain't my taste buds!
Anything I was eating will watching a disturbing movie (certain brand of deep dish pizza I refuse to eat. Never let a 7 yr old eat while watching War of the Worlds)
Ramen noodles (made the mistake of watching I am Legend at the same time)
Now anything that is too oily in texture (even if baked). I apparently have little tolerance for fried foods...I couldn't keep hush puppies down.
Any sort of fat in meat
Cant stand the smell of pork. I'm allergic anyway
And probably others
a cow's itestine and stomach
not gonna lie, its actually pretty good! you should go try it!
Boiled seaweed. No idea what possessed me to try it.
It’s nothing exotic. It’s nothing unusual. It’s oxtail soup!
However, this is something I can’t explain. Three renal operations and each time I’ve gone off food and drink that I used to love, the last being crispy duck. Now I can’t even stand the smell without needing to throw up.
Cottage Cheese. People. Its clabbored milk. Also, onions. I know someone who will just eat one
Sauerkraut: smells like vomit
Horse meat: never tried it, just the thought made me feel sick
Maybe smoked octopus, but that was on a dare...
Remember before you were 10 there was always one kid on the block that ate dirt and rocks and worms and stuff?
Yeah, well I don't do that any more, but I can say I'm immune to about any normal bug going around, or infections. Never had the flu, as a kid I had allergies but they were gone before teenhood. No Covid, but that's different... even after the vaccine I wear a mask.
