What foods have you never tried and will never try?

I have never tried these, and absolutely never will.

Tripe
Escargot
Frogs legs
Chicken feet

What are yours?

I am a picky eater with lots of texture issues so my list would be waaaay too long. Jello makes me gag to give you an idea.

I've eaten all those. When I was stationed in Korea, I always used to order the chicken's feet in bars. I didn't like them, but I got a big kick out of watching newbies try to eat them. They're gross.

I can't really think of a food I wouldn't eat. I wouldn't eat an endangered species, I suppose, though I did used to eat whale in Japan. I have eaten veal and fois gras years ago, but I probably wouldn't now, just because of the cruelty aspect.

Wait! Casu marzu--an Italian cheese with live maggots in it. I would not eat that, even though the Andrew Zimmern force runs strong in me (not much I won't try once.)

Cow's tongue, pig's or chicken feet and anything's liver.

(Although I've been known to say I'll eat anything if it's covered in chocolate or cheese - but I lie.)

Well, escargot used to be on the list. I finally tried it and can legitmately say "I don't like it" now. I've also had tongue, yep, didn't care for it, either.

Tripe, brains, chicken feet are still on the list.

I'll probably try frogs legs, someday

my beloved grandfather used to eat the grossest things...lol. he ate brains and eggs, poke salad (or "poke salit", as he called it, it's really just a weed...lol) and eggs, pickled pig feet, those really gross looking eggs you see in big jars on the counters at convenience stores, you name it, he'd eat it.

i will absolutely NEVER, EVER, eat any of these things. i also refuse to eat sardines, salmon, boiled cabbage, fettuccine alfredo, or cottage cheese. with the first 4, it's the smell that gets me. with the cottage cheese...i can't get over how it looks.

I've had chocolate covered ants but there are a number of other bugs I would be a little to freaked out to eat. I remember seeing Anthony Bourdain eat a scorpion on a stick. I don't think I have the guts to eat that either.

He eats a lot of things (bugs!) that I wouldn't want to try.

But other than bugs, dead OR alive, I can't think of a single thing I wouldn't try. I might not take a second bite of something, but I would give it a try.

Im in the dont tell me what it is and I will try it.

However- head cheese and blood tongue, when I worked in a deli, would make me puke every time I had to slice it. So yeah my coworkers took pity and did it for me.

My grandmother always told us if you try it and it kills you, you never have to eat it again.

Wendy Thank You for your grandmother's wonderful quote! I'm saving that one to use on my grandchildren when I'm trying to get them to try something different!

I've tried an awful lot of things including most of the ones mentioned here. I can't think of anything I wouldn't try except for maybe something rotting. That definitely has no appeal to me.

Poke salad was one way that poor, underfed families in the south could get more green vegetables in their diet. Foraging for food is still done in many rural areas in addition to traditional gardening. My dad taught me how to find wild oats & safe mushrooms. My mother taught me that poke salad & dandelion greens were safe to eat. (At least I think it was dandelion greens! Like most Americans, my main food sources are pre-prepared or frozen etc.)

Most if not all of mine are based on my not being able to wrap my brain around putting the stuff into my mouth on purpose.

Escargot. They might be delicious, but I can't get my brain past the slime trail.

Raw meat, whether it be steak tartare, sashimi, or whatever. I believe in fire.

Cephalopods. That would be squid and octopus. Just... no.

Basically anything without a backbone.
