Yogurt--I don't know why because I love cottage cheese and sour cream, calimari, anything with bugs in it, sweetbreads, sushi, brains, escargot. I grew up eating organ meat--heart, kidneys and liver and tongue. I still love tongue but don't eat it since no one else in the house will.

A repeat of many of posts already but need to add chitterlings. I can't get over the smell or the look. No thank you!

I'll try pretty much anything except monkey bread. Stupid name. Not that I'm a big sweets eater anyway, but ugh, terrible name, so I avoid in protest.

Coffee. I've never have had it, never will. Not sure why. It just doesn't appeal to me. I like the smell of fresh ground coffee beans though...

Tripe was the first thing that came to mind.

Maybe escargot too.

Lol, I remember even after I was grown & driving my elderly mama around, she would always have a plastic bag with her so if she spotted poke 'salet' growing on the side of the road we could stop and she would pick it. She would clean it good and pour hot bacon grease over it so it was kinda like a wilted salad.

Raw Oysters. I just can't. To me they look like huge gobs of snot on a plate.

I'll also pass on the cheese with the maggots in it.

My brothers used to tell me bologna was monkey meat so that's what I think of when I see bologna. They also used to tell me that those little green peas were just those little bugs that roll up when you touch them.........

I will try about anything and have most of the foods mentioned. I would have to pass on the cheese with maggots. I love to get a tongue when I go to a deli and when I was growing up, brain sandwiches were popular in the local diner and they were really good!

Durian.

I had the chance to try it in Asia, and I flat out refused. The smell....like rotting meat...completely turned my stomach. There was no way that was going in my mouth. My husband tried it...said it was "interesting" which is Minnesota code for "I'm never doing that again!"

It's a fruit, BTW.

My DD happily gnawed away on chicken feet...that one I had to pass on as well.

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.
