    I'm an adventurous eater too -- calf's head, cervelles de veau, escargots pretty frequently, durian, the flesh behind the eye of the fish, you name it -- but I would eat a hundred Rocky Mountain Oysters before one piece of "monkey bread." A lot of the foods on this list need a new marketing team. Head cheese? Really? Who thinks that sounds appetizing?

    You don't believe me ask the dishes. :upsidedow

    How about crappie fish. When my kids catch those I tell them not to even bother bringing them home. I really don't want to cook or eat something named crappy. :lmao:

    Filled pig stomach. My MIL makes it and their whole family eats it. My kids and I stay home when they have it. The smell alone is nauseating.

    True story from 22 years ago.

    We went out to eat for celebrate DH and I getting engaged. Went to the best restraunt here in town. My baby brother who was 18, asked the waitress what the seafood specials were. The last one stated was Dolphin. My brother just stared at her with a look of horror on his face and stammered Dolphin??? As in flipper??? We all, including the waitress, got a huge laugh out of the look on his face as he asked this.

    With much laughter, she explained what it was. And no, he didn't order it then, nor does he order it today. Even though it is now being called Mahi-Mahi. It's scarred him for life.

    Based on just the names....chick-peas and eggplant.

    Who would want to eat a bean called a "chick-pee"?? Just gross if you ask me. Where'd that come from anyway?

    And eggplant. My mental picture is way different than the real thing but I hate eggs and I can't get over it enough to even try these!

    Yup, Monkey Bread is sticky cinnamon bread, you can use Pillsbury rolls, cut them into 4ths, cover them in sugar and cinnamon and bake it. They are amazing. And there is NO way I would chose Rocky Mountain Oysters over Monkey Bread. LOL :thumbsup2

    Chick-peas are good, have you ever had hummus? Hummus is made with Chick-peas. And eggplant is not that great, unless you make eggplant parm, and then it's really good. LOL

    Oh, I can (after many years of being grossed out) eat garbanzo beans. I just have to remind myself the whole time I'm eating them that they are garbanzo beans and NOT chickpeas. :rotfl2:

    Mmmmm....you need to have some GOOD fish tacos. They are heavenly!!


    Bubble and squeak is one of my fave sides, and DH is obsessed with scotch eggs.

    We pr. it crop-py. And they are good ;)

    Love love love both chickpeas and eggplants. I make a mock tuna salad out of chick peas that is FAB!

    Me - I can't eat anything with "product" in the name (canned meat product, cheese product, etc), or any of the wursts, bloods, oysters that aren't of the sea, etc. Blech.

    I can't imagine not trying something just because it has a weird name. I mean really, who cares what something is called? I get a 3-year-old doing that, but not a grown man or woman.

    A while back I noticed a dry chicken soup mix in the ethnic section of the supermarket. It was from Jamaica and called **** Soup. (The DIS censored the word......think Rooster...or a vulgar word for a part of the male anatomy).

    Don't think I willing to try it based on the name.
